Thursday'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.
Summer Chorus @ 7/2 BOG
This 4yr old filly has finished 322 in her last three outings and was only beaten by half a length last time out. That was 26 days ago, when behind Big Tour who has since won again off a mark 4lbs higher and up in class, so if the form holds out, we could be well in.
She's got 1 win and 1 place from 2 starts here and possesses the same record under today's jockey Oisin Murphy and her trainer Andrew Balding is in good form right now, saddling up 8 winners from 37 (21.6% SR) over the last fortnight.
More long-term, the Balding yard is 18/93 (19.4% SR) for 58.7pts (+63.1% ROI) with handicappers priced at 12/1 and shorter on the Rowley track here since 2009, from which...

- at Class 3 : 5/27 (18.5%) for 26.3pts (+97.2%)
- females are 4/15 (26.7%) for 16.6pts (+110.9%)
- and over 7 furlongs : 3/12 (25%) for 172pts (+143.7%)
And then there's the matter of 3 to 5 yr olds running over 7/7.5 furlongs on the Flat after three consecutive top 3 placings. Such horses that were 2nd or 3rd last time out 6-30 days earlier are 96/442 (21.7% SR) for 177.8pts (+40.2% ROI) over the last six seasons, including...
- those last seen 11-30 days ago : 80/355 (22.5%) for 181.4pts (+51.1%)

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!
