Monday's selection goes in the...
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.
Riviera Sun @ 3/1 BOG
A Class 3, two miles and six furlongs handicap chase on heavy going...
...and an eight-year-old gelding who has won three times over fences previously and appears plenty happy enough with testing conditions.
The following statistics make him stand out for me today.
- Riviera Sun is 1/2 (50%) here at Galway for 15pts
- he is 2/3 (66.67%) on today's heavy going for 3.13pts
- he is 1/1 (100%) over this distance for 16pts
- and he's 3/8 (37.5%) in this class for 2.58pts
- trainer Henry de Bromhead at Galway for the past year is 7/29 (24.14%) for 25.75pts
- jockey Barry Geraghty at Galway for the past year is 8/21 (38.1%) for 21.44pts
...giving us... a 1pt win bet on Riviera Sun @ 3/1 BOG, which was available from Bet365, Paddy Power, Skybet and Boylesports at 8:15 pm on Sunday, but to see what your preferred bookie is offering, simply...

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!
