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.
All Is Good @ 7/2 BOG
A Class 4, 4yo+ Handicap Hurdle over 2m on Soft ground worth £4,159 to the winner...
Well, on a day where there aren't many stat angles jumping out at me, I'm going to keep it simple for a change!
I felt that presence of a Tom Lacey runner here meant that our pick offered some decent value at the prices quoted on what could be pretty tough going.
Our boy is trained by the in-form Robin Dickin, whose runners have all made the frame over the last fortnight with 3 winners and 3 placers from his 6 entrants and his representative here is a lightly raced 6 yr old gelding by Scorpion and that's of interest to me, because...
...Scorpion handicap jumpers are 14 from 102 (13.7% SR) for 113pts (+110.8% ROI) profit since the start of 2016 when running on ground declared as soft or softer and amongst those 102 mudlarks...
- males are 9/79 (11.4%) for 115.2pts (+145.8%)
- on Soft : 9/69 (13%) for 116.2pts (+168.4%)
- over hurdles : 8/65 (12.3%) for 110.3pts (+169.7%)
- at Class 4 : 9/60 (15%) for 121.4pts (+202.3%)
- at odds of 2/1 to 10/1 : 12/55 (21.8%) for 29pts (+52.7%)
- January/February : 7/36 (19.4%) for 22.03pts (+61.2%)
- and here at hereford : 2/3 (66.6%) for 16.7pts (+556.6%)

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!
