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..

It is played at the Sherwood country club, Thousand Oaks in California and only eighteen players compete in it and the tournament is a benefit for the Tiger Woods Foundation.

Are Arsenal worth backing?
by Micko70 on 01 Dec at 20:40
As i write this Arsenal are 4 points clear at the top of the premiership, everything looks to be on the up for the Londoners after losing at home to Aston Villa on the opening day of the season. Arsenal took the lead against Villa on the opening day before losing the game 3-1, they then won 4 premier leagues on the trot beating Fulham away (3-1), Tottenham at home (1-0), Sunderland away (3-1) & Stoke at home (3-1). Arsenal also lost at home to Chelsea and away at Man Utd before winning their last 2 league games without conceding a goal. Again, as i write this you can get 11/4 on Arsenal winning the league, on paper that looks a great price with a lead but do they really look that good. SIGNINGS Arsenal only signed 1 player in the summer transfer window, Mezut..

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,..

PDC World Darts Championship
by Hogsback on 04 Dec at 19:22
I still find the PDC World Darts Championship the single most exciting sports event in any year. It is the competition that has it all. The big star, Phil Taylor, always shines brightly having won 14 World Championship titles. This could be his last time in this tournament as he is 53 Years of age now. No Phil Taylor would be devastating and that can be contemplated for another year. He might well go out on a ‘high’ so if he wins it again this year who knows? His hunger does not fade and neither does his eye sight as shown by winning the recent Grand Slam of Darts for the fifth time. Taylor is certainly a phenomenon and a true sporting legend. He is odds-on to win this year, so the bookies are giving nothing away. Taylor’s main rivals..

by TeddyT on 28 Nov at 14:59
Use OLBG to help you find the winner of the UK Championship The UK Championship is underway in York and the OLBG members have been hard at work assessing the players’ form and analysing all the statistics and have come up with some great bets to win this event. Here are just a few: Tubes 180 Outright Selection: Mark Selby I see great value in the 9/1 available on Mark Selby. Mark won this event last year and comes into this in some fine form. He won a tour event 2 weeks back in Antwerp coming from 3-1 down to beat Ronnie 4-3. He also looked in fine fettle at the Champions of Champions last week reaching the semi finals where he came up against a brick wall in Stuart Bingham, but he played well in defeat. Selby has one of the better records against..
