Tuesday'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.
Dragoon Guard at 7/2 BOG
Now this 5yr old gelding may well be owned by one of the Geegeez racing syndicates and is trained by the Geegeez-sponsored Anthony Honeyball, but I assure you there's no nepotism or proprietary issues going on here at all.
Geegeez sponsor the Honeyball yard partially because we believe it's a yard going places and Anthony's runners are in fine form indeed. Over the last month, his 10 representatives have returned with 4 wins and 4 places and according to the excellent Horseracebase site, of all the trainers with runners at Fontwell today, Anthony is the most successful!
His record here over the last two years stands at 12 winners from 33 (36.4% SR) for 20.9pts (+63.4% ROI), with the following of interest today...
- in handicaps : 8/21 (38.1% SR) for 19.3pts (+91.9% ROI)
- at Class 4 : 5/17 (29.4% SR) for 7.5pts (+44.2% ROI)
- and over hurdles : 516 (31.25% SR) for 3.8pts (+23.7% ROI)
But the above track success is no real surprise if you look at his more general record in handciap hurdles contests, where he has 56 winners from just 225 (24.9% SR) runners since the start of 2010 that have generated very healthy level stakes profits of 151.4pts at an ROI of 67.3%. Of those 225 runners...
- class 4 runners are 27/99 927.3% SR) for 59.4pts (+60% ROI)
- 5yr olds are 20/58 (34.5% SR) for 44.8pts (+77.2% ROI)
- whilst back here at Fontwell, they are 8/19 (42.1% SR) for 9.4pts (+49.3% ROI)
...meaning today's play is a 1pt win bet on Dragoon Guard at 7/2 BOG which was widely available at 8.55pm. For your pick of the bookies, simply...
