Miss Lucinda Russell Stable Runners To Follow (part Five)
by meoldmate on 28 Nov at 23:00
This Friday we see two more of the Miss Lucinda Russell horses to follow with the selected few from this stable. CLONDAW KNIGHT Five year old who made a good impression, when appearing at Kelso and winning a novice handicap chase by four lengths from Surprise Vendor. His jumping was perfect and really a likeable horse to follow. The first of two runners for today, runs at Doncaster and the the other runner from Musselburgh. 1.20 DONCASTER NOVICE HANDICAP CHASE DISTANCE THREE MILES GOING GOOD SEVEN RUNNERS . 1. THE MUMPER just had the two runs this season and looks to be improving each time, made a couple of errors at Taunton on first appearance over fences, if jumping improves, could be worthy of interest. 2. CLONDAW FLICKA stepping up in trip, could be the answer to a big run, as he was staying on..
Predicting early Goals in the Lower Leagues of English Football
by man o bong on 30 Nov at 10:45
This is a fairly simple approach to betting on teams to score early in football matches taking place in the lower leagues of English football I know from watching the score on a Saturday afternoon for another approach of backing to lay 0-0 scorelines, that the Premier league especially and the Championship have a high proportion of games where we have to wait some time for the first goal to be scored and whilst that has been successful to a point, although not magically so, I thought I would look at it from the opposite angle and lower down the leagues for sides that seem to get of the mark earlier and regularly. Early Goal Scorers So in this first attempt I am looking for sides, either playing home or away that have shown a penchant for coming out early and getting on..
November Big Race Reviews and Cheltenham Festival 2014 Clues
by man o bong on 03 Dec at 19:30
The first real full month of the national Hunt season is in the box and we have several big races to asses the form of. I am looking to review each month as it passes en-route to the Cheltenham Festival Where did runners catch the eye? Where did they need the run? Can we take anything from the form just yet? Early season form can be quite difficult to asses and we will see examples of this as we take a look back at November and races such as the Charlie Hall, Haldon Gold Cup, Paddy power Gold and Betfair Chase, over fences, whilst Over hurdles, the likes of the Greatwood Hurdle and Long Distance at Newbury to unpick Charlie Hall Chase - Wetherby 1st 4 Harry Topper K C Bailey 6 11-6 J M Maguire 5/1 Held up, jumped slowly 1st, blundered next, not fluent 9th, headway on outside 11th, challenged 4 out,..
NBA Review - November
by botev1921 on 01 Dec at 14:49
When betting on the NBA one must always know the developments well and if possible monitor as many news articles as possible, especially those involving injuries, team chemistry, trade rumors and overall team dynamics. Since this is a sport where something new is happening every day if not every hour, in my monthly reviews I will try to provide a short summary of how the season progresses and what are the best potential bets at the time. I will single out the most important moments from the previous month and try to come up with predictions on how the following month will pan out, who could potentially struggle and who could end up surprising the specialists. The good, the better and the best In November we had two pretty great stories to supplement the familiar faces on top of the league. The..
If you like NFL and Football you'll love this - probably!!
by drobgod on 04 Dec at 15:14
Okay let's not take this too seriously, but over the last six weeks or so I've been dabbling with the NFL on a weekend. This new found love for American Football coincided with my wife watching Downton Abbey and Paradise on a Sunday evening and me struggling to remain in the same room with such drivel on in the background. Off I skipped to the bedroom, where I also have Sky Sports installed for such traumatic times as stated above, and tuned in to find around six hours of American Football being streamed live. Now as boring as those period dramas mentioned above are, even I knew I'd have to have a little flutter on the NFL matches to get me through the night and it's because of this I've stumbled across my crazy system. When looking at the NFL..
Trainers to follow in December
by Scratville on 29 Nov at 23:01
Christmas is coming fast so lets try and get some spendo and highlight the trainers who make hay at this festive time. This month we have 3 NH trainers, 3 AW trainers and 2 trainers from across the Irish Sea:- NH N HENDERSON (HURDLERS) Not the most original selection but continues to fire out the winners at this time of the year and the fact that he has had a relatively quiet November could bode well for this month. 2009 12/34 35% +£9.33 2010 6/26 23% +£0.85 2011 21/67 31% +£9.44 2012 9/36 25% (£1.80) The amount of winners..
Come Racing " Why Bother '' ?
by The Executioner on 01 Dec at 22:20
It wasn’t that long ago that a certain over the top former Ch4 betting personality screamed COME RACING PUNTERS HAVE NEVER HAD IT SO GOOD ; well that comment seems completely inappropriate to me these days. A day at the races can be a really enjoyable time for many of us ; not only can we follow the sport that we love but it’s a nice place to catch up with friends that we haven’t seen for a while ; have a drink possibly and with some luck may be back a winner or two. It all sounds great but from a financial point of view is it actually worth it ? A lot would depend on how close you live to the track as travelling costs can add up to a sizable part of the day’s..

Why Cue Card is a steal at 11/4 for the King George
How good is very good? Cue Card, on Saturday, won the Grade 1 Betfair Chase at Haydock by 4 ½ lengths. This, I hope, won’t be news to most readers. In doing so he provided the answer to a long standing...
