  • The ATP's Next Gen at Wimbledon

    undertherobe on 23 Jun at 22:43

    Back in March, the ATP Tour launched their new marketing campaign with the new crop of 'Next Generation' players. Next Gen certainly has a better ring to it than their 2001 campaign 'New Balls Please' but the ATP will be hoping that the new crop have as much success as the eight players introduced to the world back then. Roger Federer is clearly the most successful with 17 Grand Slam titles but Andy Roddick, Juan Carlos Ferrero, Lleyton Hewitt, Marat Safin and Gustavo Kuerten helped the campaign to amass 26 Grand Slam titles in total whilst the two players not to win a Major, Tommy Haas and Sebastian Grosjean didn't have too shabby a career. But back to the new crop of talent. Ten players in total, ranging from those already mixing it with the elite to those still learning their trade. All…

  • Falmouth Stakes at Newmarket Key Race Trends - 8 July 2016

    Robmull on 23 Jun at 15:05

    The Tattersalls 250th Year Falmouth Stakes is a Group 1 race for fillies aged 3 years and older to be run on Friday, 8 July 2016 over 1 mile on the July course at Newmarket and is one of the first top tier races in which the classic generation lock horns with older fillies and mares at 1 mile. During the past decade, only 2 market leaders have obliged for a Loss of 4.37 pts, whilst just 4 of the remaining winners have started at single figure odds, with the exceptions having been sent off at odds of 10/1 x 2, 16/1 and 50/1, which suggests that it often pays punters to look beyond the obvious when assessing the runners in this event. For the purpose of this analysis I will be using the key race trends for the Falmouth…

    The rabbit on 22 Jun at 12:28

    Agnieszka Radwanska has yet to win a Grand Slam but did reach her first final in one when runner up at Wimbledon in 2012 where she was defeated by Serena Williams. She has won a total of 18 WTA events and has improved in the last 12 months with four victories including the prestigious WTA Tour Championship in Singapore last November. She started this year with a victory in the Shenzhen Open in China and has performed consistently since and has moved up the rankings to number three. Grass is her favourite surface and she has a good record at Wimbledon and has twice reached the semi finals as well as the final and has prepared her schedule this year especially for this tournament. Wimbledon is one of four Grand Slam tournaments that take place each year and it is the…

    Euro 2016 Quarter Final Preview : Games 1 & 2 Hi everyone and welcome to my blog, here I will give you a bit of an overview of the matches, some thoughts on their progress so far, teams who they’ll face in the next round and a look at the price for them to go on to win the Euro’s. Price to Progress I don’t think there will too much of a surprise here, we have Portugal (4/7) and Belgium (1/3) both favourites and I guess with the strength of squad each side has I kind of understand they ultimately are favourites to go through. Wales at 9/4 and Poland are 7/4 Personally I think the bookies have not go it too far wrong but Poland look a nice price at 7/4 (3/1 to win in normal time) Wales v…

  • Darley July Cup at Newmarket Key Race Trends - 9 July 2016

    Robmull on 23 Jun at 15:56

    The Darley July Cup is a Group 1 race for runners aged 3 years and older which is run over 6 furlongs on the July course at Newmarket on Saturday, 9 July 2016 and is the most prestigious event to be run on the third and final day of the July meeting. During the past decade, 4 market leaders have obliged for a LSP of 2.25 pts, whilst a further 3 winners started at single figure odds, with the exceptions having been sent off at odds of 10/1, 12/1 and 20/1, which suggests that punters should probably concentrate on runners that are reasonably close to the top of the betting market. The Darley July Cup is one of the legs of the Global Sprint Challenge, although only Marchand D’Or for France in 2008 is the only non UK and Ireland…
