Stat of the Day

SotD, 01/08/16

Saturday's Result :

8.45 Hamilton : Lara Carbonara @ 6/1 BOG 3rd at 9/2 (Towards rear, ridden over 2f out, kept on inside final furlong, went 3rd place close home)

Monday's pick goes in the...

4.30 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.
