Saturday's Result :

Monday's pick goes in the...

2.30 Carlisle

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.

Who?

Theatre Act 5/1 BOG

Why?

Today's pick is trained by Chris Grant and is due to be ridden by Brian Hughes and both have done well here at Carlisle in the past. Chris' horses were 4/11 (36.4% SR) for 61.7pts (+560.8% ROI) here last year and although the profit/loss figure is clearly skewed by a big-priced winner, the numbers still look good, as they include the following...

Once again, the big-priced winner caveat applies to the above.

Today's jockey, Brian Hughes is enjoying another of those purple patches he seems to have on a regualr basis, winning 7 of his 25 rides last week and he too had a great year at Carlisle in 2016, winning 14 of 44 (31.8% SR) for 30.2pts (+68.6% ROI) and aside from his 2 winners from 3 rides for Chris Grant, those 44 runners could be broken down as follows...

  • and at 2m/2m1f : 6/14 (42.9%) for 7.2pts (+51.4%)

As for the horse, Theatre Act, she has finished 11551 in her last five outings winning on her last two visits here at Carlisle and also winning at Sedgefield LTO 22 days ago. She looks well suited to the task ahead, as her hurdles record includes...
