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.
Stone The Crows @ 3/1 BOG
An unexposed 3 yr old gelding with just 5 starts to his name and after finishing 4th on debut, has been ridden by today's jockey, 3lb claimer Kieran Shoemark, in all four subsequent runs, making the frame each time (1 win and 3 x 2nd).

...has an excellent record in Flat handicaps over 1m1f to 1m4f over the past three seasons, clocking up 29 winners from 105 (27.6% SR) runners for level stakes profits of 47.1pts or £4.48 profit from every £10 wagered.

P.S. all P/L returns quoted in the stats above are to Betfair SP, as I NEVER bet to ISP and neither should you. I always use BOG bookies for SotD, wherever possible, but I use BFSP for the stats as it is the nearest approximation I can give, so I actually expect to beat the returns I use to support my picks. If that's unclear, please ask!
