Saturday's pick goes in the...
Before I post the daily selection, just a quick reminder of how I operate the service. Generally, I'll identify and share the selection in the evening before the following day's race and I then add a detailed write-up later on that night/next morning.
Those happy to take the early price on trust can do so, whilst some might prefer to wait for my reasoning. As I fit the early service in around my family life, I can't give an exact timing on the posts, so I suggest you follow us on Twitter and/or Facebook for instant notifications of a published pick.
Roll On Rory at 7/1 BOG
This 3 yr old gelding is in cracking form of late, finishing 112 in his last three outings, the latest being a 1.5 length defeat 23 days ago.
In terms of what he faces today, he seems well suited, as he has 3 wins from 10 on the Flat (2/6 in handicaps), from which he has achieved the following...
- 2 wins and 1 place from 6 as a 3yr old (all hcps)
- 2 wins and 2 places from 6 on good to firm (1w, 1pl /3 hcps)
- 3 wins from 5 after 15-30 days rest (2/3 in hcps)
- 1 win, 1 place from 2 runs in a visor (both hcps)
- 1 win, 1 place from 2 runs with today's jockey (both hcps)
- 1 win, 1 place from 2 runs at Class 4 (both hcps)
and he was considered good enough to run in a Listed race last season, where he wasn't disgraced at all.
On top of that, horses with a 112 profile from their last three runs are 47/277 (17% SR) for 25.2pts (+9.1% ROI) on the Flat since the start of the 2012 season, including the following relevant data from today's contest...
