Monday'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.
Satish at 3/1 BOG
We've an in-form trainer and jockey, both with good records at this venue, so let's start with the jockey, a certain Lanfranco Dettori, or Frankie to his mates!
The guy is riding as well as ever and has scored 5 times from 15 rides in the past 7 days. Now, he might well be known for his 500+ Group race victories, but he also has a decent strike rate here on the A/W track at Kempton, via 53 winners from 188 (218.2% SR) since 2009.
And now to the "gaffer", John(ny) Gosden, a perennial success story having another purple patch of late with 7 winners from 19 in the last week alone and he, too, fares well here by the Thames with 106 winners from 523 runners (20.3% SR) for admittedly modest profits of 16.54pts at an ROI of 3.2%. Mind you, that's from blindly backing all his runners here, but under today's conditions...
- non-hcps : 77/354 (21.75%) for 36.25pts (+10.24%)
- in maidens : 70/319 (21.9%) for 52.8pts (+16.5%)
- males are 68/289 (23.5%) for 79.8pts (+27.6%)
- and since the start of 2015 : 19/68 (27.9%) for 44.8pts (+65.8%)
Males in maidens are 39/142 (27.5% SR) for 76.2pts (+53.7% ROI), of which 2015/16's tally is 7/23 (30.4%) for 11.92pts (+51.8%).
We should also remember that Mr Gosden enjoys plenty of success at this specific mile and a half trip and backing all of his runners over 1m4f since the start of 2008 gives you 7 profitable years from 8 with the exception being a mere 8.47pts loss from an overall record that stands at 132/552 (23.9% SR) for profits of 172.9pts at an ROI of 31.3% and those runners are 18/56 (32.1%) for 47.26pts (+84.4%) this year.
And of those original 552 runners over 1m4f, those running in non-handicap contests are 94/378 (24.9%) for 133.8pts (+35.4%), of which...
