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.
Where's Jeff @ 4/1 BOG
In a 7-runner, Class 5, Flat Handicap for 3yo over 1m½f on Soft ground, worth £5434 to the winner...
A 3yr old gelding dropping in class, returning to a track he has run well on previously, Conditions shouldn't trouble him and he gets on well with his jockey.
Numerically this translates as he has a win and a runner-up finish from two previous outings here at Hamilton and he was a runner-up (beaten by just a short head) on his only prior run on soft ground. He has two wins and a place from four efforts with Nathan Evans in the saddle and his record of 2 wins and a place from 5 handicap runs includes a 1 from 1 at this course and distance.
If that's not enough to convince you, then his stablemates also go well at this venue, with Mick Easterby saddling up 7 winners from 25 (28% SR) for 11.4pts (+45.6% ROI) here over the last four years, including...
- males at 6 from 20 (30%) for 11.9pts (+59.5%)
- Nathan Evans is 5 from 15 (33.3%) for 5.22pts (+34.8%)
- over this 8.5f course and distance : 4/7 (57.1%) for 12pts (+171.7%)
- and after a break of 1 to 2 months : 3/4 (75%) for 15.16pts (+379%)
Nathan Evans + males over 8.5/9 furlongs = 3 from 5 960%) for 6.18pts (+123.6% ROI) with a 1 from 1 record producing 4.66pts from the one that ran after a break of 45-60 days.
...giving us... a 1pt win bet on Where's Jeff @ 4/1 BOG, a price offered by Betfair & Paddy Power at 5.20pm on Sunday evening. To see what your preferred bookie will give you later...

REMINDER: THERE IS NO STAT OF THE DAY ON SUNDAYS
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!
