Stat of the Day, 27th August 2020

Wednesday's pick was...

4.05 Musselburgh : Millie The Minx @ 4/1 BOG 5th at 11/2 (Tracked leaders until halfway, close up, ridden over 3f out, kept on same pace) 

Thursday's pick runs in the...

6.00 Lingfield :

Before I post the daily selection, just a quick reminder of how I operate the service. Normally, I'll identify and share the selection between 8.00am and 8.30am and I then add a more detailed write-up later within an hour or so of going "live".

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.

Who?

Escalade @ 4/1 BOG

...in a 10-runner, Class 5, A/W Handicap for 3yo over 1m4f on Polytrack worth £3,493 to the winner...

Why?...

Well, the racecard has lots of indicators for us...

Starting with a 3 yr old (obviously) filly in decent enough nick, finishing in the frame in all three starts this season (all at this trip, twice at this level but also once at class 3). She has one win from six so far, also at this grade and ridden by today's jockey, also on a left handed track.

Our trainer, Sir Mark Prescott, has 14, 30 and C5 next to his name, suggesting his horses are running well right now and have also fared well at this venue in the past, whilst jockey Ryan Tate's 30 shows he has been amongst the winners too and then the subsequent trainer jockey combo stats show a prolonged period of success, all of which gives me a good feeling of at least getting a run for my money.

The above strike rates (20%+), A/E figures (1.25+) and IV score (1.50+) are all very impressive and when creating angles to follow, those are my own personal starting points. In fact with IV scores all north of 2.0 and plenty of profit, these are really good numbers, but you can see that for yourself.

So, what can I add that you might not already know?

Well, I believe that 1m4f is a bit of a specialist trip and since the start of 2017 at odds ranging from 7/4 to 15/2, our trainer's runners are 11 from 45 (24.4% SR) for 17.3pts (+38.4% ROI) profit, including of relevance today...

  • 10/33 (30.3%) for 18.8pts (+56.9%) during June to September
  • 9/31 (29%) for 18.1pts (+58.5%) in races worth less than £4,000
  • 5/19 (26.3%) for 6.6pts (+34.7%) at Class 5
  • 4/17 (23.5%) for 4.23pts (+24.9%) at 6-20 dslr
  • and 4/15 (26.7%) for 12.8pts (+85.3%) with females...

...whilst in sub-£4k races during June-Sept, they are 9 from 23 (39.1% SR) for 26.1pts (+113.6% ROI), including 4/11 (36.4%) at C5, 4/10 (40%) at 6-20 dslr and 3/8 (37.5%) with females...

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!
