Stat of the Day, 27th November 2017

Next up is Monday's...

2.30 Kempton :

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.

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!

    Wow – I’d forgotten those so-called “random picks” (arf!) that Chris finds could drift like barges and still win relatively comfortably. 😉

    Cheers Chris – you might very well see November out in the black now. Good luck, good sir!

    Appreciate the info, most useful and first time I’ve followed it. Got on late at 6/1 and was concerned about the drfiting price but the horse came go on the run in over the last two fences and one to follow. Cheers, Guy.

    Great win Chris – got 11/4 with Sky last night, must have been friendless today – BOG a must for night before betting. Hope the good recent run of success continues. Many Thanks
