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.
Logi @ 5/1 BOG
A 3 yr old gelding due to be ridden by the in-form Phillip Makin, who despite an indifferent day (we all have them!) on Monday, still has 8 winners from 38 rides (21.1% SR) to his name over the last fortnight, whilst in just the past four days he has 5 winners and 4 placers from 17 for win and place strike rates of 29.4% and 52.9% respectively, so we appear to be in good hands.
Furthermore, his record here at Ayr since 2010 is very good with 51 winners from 321 (15.9% SR) attempts, recording level stakes profits of some 132.1pts (+41.2% ROI). Those P/L and ROI figures are admittedly somewhat skewed by a couple of longer-priced winners, but the strike rate remains impressive. And of relevance today from those 321 rides here in Western Scotland...
- males are 41/256 (16%) for 114.6pts (+44.8%)

- 3 yr olds are 13/61 (21.3%) for 90.5pts (+148.3%)
And if we take a closer look at Phillip's record at this venue for today's trainer, David Barron, we find that since 2009, the duo have shared 8 winners from 29 (27.6% SR) for 86.6pts (+298.5% ROI), including...
- males at 6/22 (27.3%) for 85.1pts (+386.9%)

REMINDER: THERE IS NO STAT OF THE DAY ON SUNDAYS
P.S. all P/L returns quoted in the stats are to Betfair SP, as (i) I NEVER bet to ISP and neither should you and (ii) although inferior to the BOG odds we secure, BFSP is the nearest approximation I can give, so I actually expect to beat the returns quoted.
