Friday's Result :
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.
Remarkable @ 3/1 BOG
Jockey Frankie Dettori has won 33 of his 152 (21.7% SR) rides here at Newbury since 2011 rewarding his legion of followers with level stakes profits of some 97.9pts at an ROI of 64.4%. These excellent figures include, of releavance today...
- over 6-7 furlongs : 18/63 (28.6%) for 76.83pts (+121.9%)
- in handicaps : 8/39 (20.5%) for 75.2pts (+192.9%)
- at Class 2 : 6/19 (31.6%) for 32.2pts (+169.5%)
...making him a good bet here at Newbury and he actually had the choice of two John Gosden runners in this one and if he's happy to choose this one, who am I to disagree?
That, of course, makes the assumption that I'm happy to back a Gosden runner here, so let's see why that might be the case, shall we?
Well, the yard is 8/34 over the last fortnight and 3 from 13 in the past 7 days, so they're in good enough nick and a closer inspection of their record here on this track shows 50 winners from 248 (20.2% SR) for 55.4pts (+22.3% ROI) since 2011, which breeds further confidence in the selection.
And, of those 248 runners...
- those priced at 2/1 to 12/1 are 40/185 (21.6%) for 73.1pts (+39.5%)
- males are 28/145 (19.3%) for 32.7pts (+22.6%)
- those racing over 6.5/7 furlongs are 17/62 (27.4%) for 20.9pts (+33.7%)
- 4 yr olds are 5/22 (22.7%) for 20pts (+90.9%)
- and at Class 2 : 5/16 (31.25%) for 8.57pts (+53.6%)
...all pointing to...a 1pt win bet on Remarkable @ 3/1 BOG which was widely available in several places at 6.10pm on Friday with some 7/2 BOG on offer at Stan James for those (unlike me!) who are able to do so!. To see what your preferred bookie is offering, simply...
Don't forget, we offer a full interactive racecard service every day!
REMINDER: THERE IS NO STAT OF THE DAY ON SUNDAYS
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!
