Stat of the Day, 18th August 2012

Matt is occupied elsewhere this weekend, so I'm dipping my toes back into the water in a bid to find a successful conclusion to what has already been a good week for us all involved with SotD. Dashwood failed to dash for us yesterday, but at 33/1 it wasn't a massive surprise, so no major disappointments there.

Our quest for a Saturday winner takes us North of the border today for a Class 2 Handicap Hurdle. We're expecting good ground for the eleven runners scheduled to tackle the 2m½f in the Summer Champion Hurdle aka the...

4.15 Perth

Our go-to trainer for Perth has to be Peter Bowen: he doesn't send hundreds of horses to Perth, but the few that do venture North are often well rewarded. In the past two years, he has only had ten representatives at this track, yet has managed to collect prize money on no less than seven occasions, courtesy of six winners and a place. This has rewarded his followers with a level stakes profit of 16pts from those 10 races.

During these fruitful times, Mr Bowen has called upon the services of Tom O'Brien for 8 of those rides: resulting in 4 wins and 2 places and the pair of them join forces again today for just the one ride on Kian's Delight, our SotD pick of the day.

Kian's Delight is a fast improving progressive type and ran really well last time out. On that occasion, he finished second behind Local Hero in a listed event at Market Rasen, despite running from 3lbs out of the handicap. A continuation of his progression or even a run to that same standard should be enough to see him home today in what looks a slightly easier task. With this in mind, the 5/1 BOG currently on offer from bet365, BetVictor and Paddy Power looks quite generous, so I'm in at that price. No half measures today: it's win only for SotD on this one. I'd expect that price to contract as the day goes on, so it would be wise to...

    Good luck, Chris. I’m also on Absinthe (not literally, at least not at this time of the day) but I always go double my usual stake on SotD so will be cheering Kian’s home!

    This is a pretty amazing thread for one that was, we were all told a month or two ago, not giving us any value! (That guy’s gone very quiet, hasn’t he?)

    Great job, Chris and Matt! Thank you both.

    Thanks for another winner Chris (and Matt of course!). Lady luck has been smiling on me as I missed the blank week due to holiday (and self-imposed rest from betting) and jumped back in on Tuesday for the three winners and a place since then! Always an enjoyable read and a profitable one at that.

    Stuart – you are spot on !

    Whoever that no-mark was that was belittling SotD is vacant ….what a clown

    SotD the most intelligent and smart , let alone profitable , source on the web and potentially anywhere I would wager

    And the fact that it’s kostenlos makes it THE best VALUE anywhere

    Chris – good call out congratulating Mike A … Hope you did do the forecast fella

    Just a call out on forecast bets – its worth betting them with Bet365 as remarkably they are Best Odds Guaranteed on forecasts as well as straight win bets ( horses AND greyhounds if that’s your fancy) . I think they are the solo bookmaker that does that …. So a Kians (5/1) and Ansinthe (4/1?) early forecast bet would have bog returned around 24/1 compared to the SP 16/1 .

      Hi Johnny,
      Thanks for that. I wasn’t aware that bet365 offered BOG for forecasts. It just goes to show that every day brings something new! 😀

      All the best,
