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.
Rattle On @ 4/1 BOG
A Tapeta debut beckons for this 4yr old gelding, whose chance must surely be boosted by the fact that the in-form Silvestre de Sousa is booked to do the steering. SdS has won 25 of his 89 rides (28.1% SR) over the last fortnight, including another four winners yesterday (Sunday), whilst more long-term he is 70 from 272 (25.7% SR) here at Wolverhampton since the start of 2013.
Trainer Jim Boyle might not have accrued such excellent figures himself, but 30 Wolverhampton winners from 147 runners (20.4% SR) for level stakes profits of 54.9pts (+37.3% ROI) is more than decent, I'd say.
And with the above in mind, there's probably enough evidence to support the selection, but as it's a switch to Tapeta, it's worth highlighting the performance of runners sired by Pivotal running in handicaps on Tapeta after running on a different surface last time out, as they are currently 23/115 (20% SR) for 70.3pts (+61.1% ROI), including...
- over 6f to 9.5f : 20/95 (21.1%) for 80.3pts (+84.5%)
- at Wolverhampton : 18/95 (19%) for 59.9pts (+63.1%)
- at Class 6 : 5/32 (15.6%) for 18.1pts (+56.4%)
- 4 yr olds are 7/25 (28%) for 12pts (+48%)
- at Evens to 4/1 : 14/24 (58.3% ) for 31.9pts (+132.7%)

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!
