Stat of the Day

SotD, Monday 8th August

Saturday's Result :

2.35 Haydock : Tapis Libre @ 7/2 BOG 5th at 4/1 (Led briefly, tracked leaders, ridden 3f out, no extra final 2f )

Monday's pick goes in the...

8.30 Ffos Las :

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.
