7.50 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.

P.S. all P/L returns quoted in the stats above are to Betfair SP, as I NEVER bet to ISP and neither should you. I always use BOG bookies for SotD, wherever possible, but I use BFSP for the stats as it is the nearest approximation I can give, so I actually expect to beat the returns I use to support my picks. If that's unclear, please ask!

    Such good stats…hard to imagine how it can lose!

    I notice that the SOTD had great success last year…has the service improved do you think since you first set it up? Do you use more comprehensive parameters now? Thanks

      These are very good questions indeed.
      I don’t think the performance of the service has improved dramatically to be honest. There was a poor 6 month spell a few years back, but other than that the strike rate and ROI have been pretty constant.

      I’d say the quality and depth of data used to provide the selections has improved, though, as we add more and more functionality to the geegeez toolbox, I have more angles to consider.

      There hasn’t been (in my opinion, at least) any stand out year and if pushed I’m more proud of what we achieved as a team (it’s not just me!) in 2013 than what we made last year. After the first half of 2013, we were some 25pts down, but in the second half of the year we made 48pts at an ROI of 41% from a 38.5% strike rate.

      But I’m splitting hairs here, the service launched in November 2011 with a winner on day 1 and has been in profit ever since.

      Your query has, however, reminded me that I’ve not done a 2017 roundup, so that will get done today (Monday) at some point.
