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.
Wotadoll @ 7/2 BOG
...in a 10-runner, Class 5, A/W Handicap for 3yo+ over 6f on polytrack worth £3752 to the winner...
This 4 yr old filly carries bottom weight here, receiving 3 to 13lbs from her nine rivals despite arriving here in decent nick having won two of her last three starts, including a course and distance win on her only previous run on this track two races ago.
She wasn't beaten by far last time out when running at a higher grade off a mark 3lbs higher than today, so the drop in both class and weight should help her here.

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!
