  • PBF EXPANDING ON GREENHAM DAY.

    pompeybuster12 on 24 Apr at 09:01

    PBF, THE GREENHAM MOVING FORWARDS I thought it would be interesting to take a look at the ratings thrown up from GREENHAM DAY at Chelmsford to see if we can take any pointers below are the figures posted for every horse running on Greenham Day we will delve into them and investigate any excuses or indeed any that looked better than the bare figure suggests. The most obvious advantage will be setting a line between good turf horses moving forwards and simply good all weather performers who happened upon the right surface against others who expected to be slugging through heavy ground 100 miles away at Newbury franked by the fact that only 3 runners went to post for the Greenham itself. TWELVE MONTHS AGO, MUHAARAR When Muhaarar threw down a 58 in a soft ground maiden at Doncaster it would have…

  • A Blue Point of View (Bets on Man City)

    RACHACE on 27 Apr at 10:27

    Southampton v Manchester City, Sunday 1st May (16:30 ko) Firstly welcome to the blog. This is a Premier League blog on my club Manchester City. Our 36th game of the season see's us travel to the South Coast to take on Ronald Koeman's Southampton team at St Mary's Stadium. Another rather impressive season for the Dutchman and his under estimated team as they look to secure another top 8 finish in the Premier League, it could possibly be more if they finish the season strongly and the sides above them slip up. Based on recent form and performances they'll be eyeing up a higher finish that 8th that for sure. Ronald Koeman is surely being monitored by a few of the more traditionally bigger clubs in the league. What he has done with Southampton is…

  • Klopp's shopping list - Summer transfer window ramblings

    ibfm23 on 23 Apr at 08:19

    There isn't much to talk about this week in terms of betting. The Reds host Newcastle and the bookmakers are riding Liverpool's wave offering 1X2 odds at 1.6/ 4.59/ 6. Yes, the Reds have been playing very well, but let's also keep in mind that Newcastle will be desperate to take something home and that Liverpool's minds will inevitably be on Thursday's Europa League semi-final against Villareal. Stay away. We are fast approaching the end of the season and the summer transfer window is in sight. This will be Klopp's first real opportunity to dig into the coffers and mold the side to his liking. If ain't broken... Klopp's success at Dortmund was built on three core elements; (1) keeping a high defensive line (2) a fast passing game and (3) applying pressure in three quarters pitch. This approach has been mirrored at…

  • Kentucky Derby Key Race Trends - 7 May 2016

    Robmull on 26 Apr at 15:24

    The Kentucky Derby is scheduled to be run on Saturday, 7 May 2016 over 1 mile and 2 furlongs on dirt at Churchill Downs, in the state of Kentucky, USA. This Grade 1 race for 3yos is also known as ‘The run for the Roses’ and is the first leg of the US Triple Crown, which is completed by the Preakness Stakes at Pimlico and the Belmont Stakes at Belmont Park. With an average field size of over 19 runners during the past decade, over what we in Britain would class as a tight oval track of approximately 1 mile in circumference the Kentucky Derby often presents an interesting puzzle for punters to assess. During the past decade, 5 market leaders have obliged for a LSP of 13.20 pts (based on US pair mutual dividends), whilst a further 2 winners have…

  • MLB Review - We 23.04.16

    undertherobe on 24 Apr at 16:33

    After seven no-hitters in 2015, this past week saw the first of 2016 with Jake Arrieta tossing his second no-no in less than twelve months and it was the first April no-hitter since 2012. Arrieta has firmly established himself at the top of the game and is featured in my pitchers to watch below............ Picks Review After two scoreless performances, VINCE VELASQUEZ was well off on Tuesday night, giving up five runs and recording just four strikeouts in an 11-1 thrashing by the Mets. Although he wasn’t helped by his teammates and he finished with 4.1 IP, 5 H. 2 ER, 4 SO. Whilst Velazquez couldn’t continue his hot start, MAT LATOS could as he shutdown the Angels in a 5-0 win for Chicago. Latos has been something of a journeyman over the past few years but he’s off to a red…

During the past decade, 4 market leaders have obliged for a LSP of 2.50 points, whilst a further winner was sent off at 9/4, although there have been some surprise results with the remaining 5 winners starting at 9/1 x 2, 10/1, 25/1 and 33/1.
