Tuesday's pick 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.
Herons Heir @ 4/1 BOG
It's all about family affairs today, as firstly we have the Skeltons with jockey Harry riding for trainer Dan aiming to improve their joint record in handicap chases at distances shorter than 3m2f with horses priced in the general 6/4 to 12/1 price range.
At present, that record stands at 39 winners from 201 (19.4%$ SR) for profits of 23.5pts (+11.7% ROI) backed blindly.
On ground ranging from good through to soft, they are 37/184 (20.1%) for 29pts (+15.8%) and at the sharper trips ie 1m7.5f/2m, the numbers are 6/21 (28.6%) for 4.96pts.
Over these short trips on ground ranging from good through to soft, they are 6/20 (30% SR) for 5.96pts (+29.8% ROI).
The second instalment of the family bill comes from the breeding of Herons Heir, as he's by Heron Island, whose chasers were 24/130 (18.9% SR) for 58.6pts (+45% ROI) in 2016, with handicappers winning 16 of 82 (19.5%) for 41.4pts (+50.5%).
And of these 82 handicappers...
- those whose last ran 11-150 days earlier were 13/66 (19.7%) for 34pts (+51.5%)
- 8 yr olds (as Herons Heir was last yr) were 9/37 (24.3%) for 34.6pts (+93.4%)
AND...8 yr olds coming off a break of 26-150 days were 6/23 (26.1% SR) for 21.7pts (+94.5% ROI)
...giving us...a 1pt win bet on Herons Heir @ 4/1 BOG which was offered by Paddy Power and Stan James at 5.40pm on Tuesday, but to see what your preferred bookie is offering, simply...
