Troytown Handicap Chase Trends (Updated Friday 21st Nov)
by Micko70 on 20 Nov at 15:38
The Troytown Handicap Chase is a Grade B handicap chase that is run at Navan racecourse in the 2nd half of November. The race is run over 3 miles and is open to all horses aged 4 or older and rated between 0 & 150. It is also one of the biggest chases run at the course ans 1 of the most attractive Handicap Chases run in Ireland throughout the season. I am looking at 9 different trends for the race, they are - Age, Weight, Official Rating, Last Time Out, Last Run, Year Runs, Year Wins, Chase Wins & Distance. Any horse passing a trend with 10 gets 5 points, 9 gets 4 points, 8 gets 3 points, 7 gets 2 points and any horse passing a trend with 6 gets 1 point The 5 day declarations are - 72220- Cause Of Causes(216) 6..
Multiple Entries & Minor Meetings
by Micko70 on 18 Nov at 00:33
I have been watching Horse racing for 30 years now and gambling on it for over 25 years and something that still interests me now as much as as it did years ago is Multiple Entries. As does looking at minor meetings when the huge meetings take place, i will have a look at both subjects in this blog MULTIPLE ENTRIES I am not saying every horse with multiple entries wins, or every trainer with multiple entries in the race wins but they do often warrant a 2nd glance and can often win at decent prices. When i say Multiple Entries, what i mean is a horse that is entered for at least 3 races over a short period of time, say about 3 or 4 days or a trainer with at least 4 entries in a single race. Quite often horses that have multiple..
NHL: Three most disappointing teams so far
by Epic on 16 Nov at 19:12
A number of teams will reach the 20-game mark next week in the new NHL season. It's been far from a perfect start for many clubs, but a few are struggling more than expected. Of course, there is still time to improve their fortune, but these following three teams - in no particular order and minus the Columbus Blue Jackets, who's woes are down to injury problems - have to get their act together as soon as possible. Dallas Stars Back in August I wrote about five teams, which in my eyes were likely to go through big improvements (you can read it HERE) and the Stars were one of them. Currently they sit bottom of the Central division though. It seems like the changes made over the summer have messed up the team chemistry. This week they picked up a couple..
PREMATURE MAYDAY FROM THE EMIRATES
by pompeybuster12 on 21 Nov at 16:04
“Should you find yourself in a chronically leaking boat, energy devoted to changing vessels is likely to be more productive than energy devoted to patching leaks.” Warren Buffett Arsene Wenger appears to have thrown in the towel already, with recent comments regarding Chelsea. Wenger states that Chelsea are on course for 100 points and my own pound for pound analysis agrees with this. I have Chelsea with a predicted 103 points on current form, I am however confident that this won’t happen as it seems very unlikely any team will finish a Premier League season with such a haul of points. The main concern about Chelsea is obviously the fitness of COSTA and REMY, both good players and indeed crucial to Chelsea’s assault on the Premier League title. If we look at Chelsea on a par with Costas goals we see that the Brazilian/Spaniard..
Asian Handicap Betting as a Tug of War
by garethp1981 on 20 Nov at 13:16
What is now known in the West as Asian Handicap Betting was originally called Hang Chen betting has been popular in Indonesia for a long time but is said only to have gotten its English name as late as 1998. The story goes that Joe Phan, an Indonesian bookmaker sent an Email to a journalist called Joe Saumarez Smith who at the time worked for an organisation called Vegas Insider, asking for an English name for this type of bet. Asian Handicap was the name that Smith came up with. In the simplest terms it is a way of evening up a game of football so that there are two main outcomes that can happen which have a roughly even chance of happening. Contrary to popular belief, the Asian Handicap doesn’t always rule out the chances of a draw although..

by The rabbit on 16 Nov at 20:28
Lydia Ko is the youngest lady golfer to have won $1 million in earnings and she is competing in the final tournament of the 2014 LPGA season which is the CME Group Tour Championship at the Ritz Carlton Golf Resort in Naples, Florida and it takes place from the 20th November - 23rd November 2014.

Cleverly v Bellew - Saturday - PPV
by FrankieMonkhouse on 19 Nov at 13:50
The Beatles released ‘We Can Work It Out’ back in 1965 but it seems the only way Tony Bellew and Nathan Cleverly can settle their long running feud is in the ring. Sky Sports Pay-Per-View screen all of the action from Liverpool’s Echo Arena live on Saturday night. This match-up has split public opinion down the middle and bookmakers seem at a loss to predict the eventual winner, meaning it’s a real pick-em contest in the betting. Former WBO world light-heavyweight champion Nathan Cleverly claimed a majority decision when the pair met in the same venue three years ago and since losing his title to the impressive Sergey Kovalev last summer via a fourth round TKO, the 27-year-old has returned to form with two stoppage wins in his most recent outings, both inside four rounds. The 6ft 1inch Welshman is best..
