THE LINCOLN early review with past three year results
by meoldmate on 24 Mar at 22:37
DONCASTER, THE LINCOLN The start of the new flat season is nearly upon us and the national hunt scene, looks to be put on the back burner, so to speak. Doncaster flat scene use to be kicked off with the Brocklesbury on the Thursday and this was seen on Channel four but now, the meeting starts on a Saturday, which we still able to enjoy with the channel four team, along with Attheraces for the rest of the meeting. The big race of the day is The Lincoln, a race over a mile with a field of runners stretched across the Town Moore. With these big field of runners, finding the winner can be difficult, as all punters have to digest: The horses fitness The ground The draw The answer to number one, concerning the horses fitness, they seem to arrive here, fairly fit from the..

by Micko70 on 26 Mar at 17:22
The Rosebery handicap is usually run at Kempton Park on the same day is the Lincoln is being run at Doncaster. The race is run over 1m 3 furlongs and has been run on the All Weather Track since 2006, meaning the last race i have looked at in 2005 was run on the old turf course. I have looked at the last 10 runnings of the race and looked at 8 trends in total, those trends are Age, Weight, Official Rating, Last Time Out, Last Run, Distance, Course Form & Draw Any horse passing a 10 will score 5 points, a 9 will score 4 points, an 8 will score 3 points, 7 will score 2 points and any horse passing a trend with 6 scores 1 point.

Race to the Stanley Cup playoffs - who will take the 8th seed in the East?
by Epic on 26 Mar at 18:55
With just over two weeks to go until the end of the NHL regular season, you can already feel the playoff atmosphere in certain games. Like LA Kings' defenseman Drew Doughty said this week - it's already playoffs for them. A lackluster first half of the season has left the defending Stanley Cup champs scrambling for a playoff berth. And they aren't alone. The Boston Bruins are another big club, which is struggling to make it to the playoffs. This after winning the Presidents Trophy last year for the best regular season record. The Bruins face a big battle to climb back to the Eastern Conference's Top 8. Even with poor form, the Bruins held on to the final playoff spot in the East for quite a while, but this week the Ottawa Senators finally grabbed it to themselves. A month..

NL West Preview
by undertherobe on 21 Mar at 20:43
Wrapping up my look at each Division in baseball with the Division that had one of the biggest gaps in performance in 2014. Two of the three team that had less than 70 wins were from the NL West although it produced two playoff teams, including World Series Champions, the San Francisco Giants. So how will 2015 play out? Los Angeles Dodgers Last Season : 94-68 (Lost 3-1 to St. Louis in the NLDS) 2014 brought a second consecutive Division title for the Dodgers and an 8th winning season in the last nine years. Having the best pitcher in baseball often helps and Clayton Kershaw returns for Los Angeles and he returns to anchor an impressive starting rotation. Kershaw has led the league in ERA for the last four years whilst Zack Greinke owns a 32-12 record in two seasons with the Dodgers...
