Friday's selection runs 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.
Present Flight @ 7/2 BOG
Firstly he hails from the in form Lucinda Russell yard, which has has 11 winners from 46 runners in the last month, of which chasers are 7 from 23.
The horse is still unexposed over fences after just three starts, but he has already won twice and finished as a runner-up in his only defeat, which came over an inadequately short trip, with his wins coming over 2m7.5f and 3m2.5f.
He was last seen 21 days ago, when winning comfortably by five lengths despite being eased right down in the closing stages and all three chase runs have been with today's jockey.
Horses rated (OR) 96 to 122 who won a novice chase last time out in the previous 4 to 45 days are 128/487 (26.3% SR) for profits of 135pts at an ROI of 27.7% since the start of 2010, with those who raced in a novice handicap chase LTO winning 116 of 420 (27.6% SR) for 136.3pts (+32.5% ROI).
In addition to the above, it's worth noting that male Class 3/4 chasers aged 6 to 9, who were winners of handicap chases by 2 to 10 lengths last time out are 220/940 (23.4% SR) for 196.9pts (+20.9% ROI).
And finally, since the start of 2013, in what I call the proper NH season (Oct-Mar), when Lucinda Russell sends her jumpers to race over 200 miles from base, they have won 23 of 178 (12.9% SR) for profits of 46.8pts at an ROI of 26.3%.
And my recommended bet, based on prices available at 6.25pm?
