Chester Cup Trends
by Micko70 on 04 May at 19:58
The Chester Cup is one of my favourite long distance handicaps of the flat season, as it's run on such a tight circuit and is always a great race to watch. The race is run over 2 miles, 2 furlongs and 147 yards, which is 2 circuits of the small 1 m 1 furlong track. I have looked at the last 10 years of the race and looked at 7 trends, those trends are - Age, Weight, Official Rating, Last Run, Distance, Draw & Handicap Wins. Any horse passing a trend with a 10 scores 5 points, a 9 scores 4 points, an 8 scores 7 points scores 2 points and any horse passing a trend with a 6 scores 1 point Final Declarations - (5) 1557-2 Angel Gabrial(11) 6 9-10 Richard Fahey - Jamie Spencer 106 (13) 110-21 Famous Kid(90) 4 9-6 Saeed bin..
Authority Bias - Why Lawro can't be trusted
by garethp1981 on 03 May at 17:37
When the words “goalkeeping howlers” are typed into Google it may not surprise Portsmouth or England fans to learn that David James’ name features fairly prominently in the results. In one YouTube clip there are fifteen examples of various goalkeeping mistakes, he is in good company (Peter Schmeichel gets a mention for example), but there is only one man who manages to put in two appearances and that man is none other than the former Portsmouth stopper himself. Another clip shows part of the Wolfburg v Portsmouth game in the Group stages of the UEFA Cup in December 2008. With the score at 2-2 the ball goes sailing over the top and a Portsmouth player taps it back to James, he receives the ball and calmly passes it straight to Zvjezdan Misimovic who rounds him and passes the ball into..

US Open - Im excited already!
by Ralfie1982 on 01 May at 12:11
Okay okay. I am already excited and its still over a month away. I was completely engrossed in the way it panned out for Speith in the last major. In previous tournaments someone who leads early is often there to be shot and and clawed back. I will just at this point be giving a few bits of information that I think will be of use to you before you put that hard earn't money to good use. ** Those of you who look for previous winners and course specialists beware, the event is at Chambers Bay in Washington. The lynx course was only opened in 2007 ** There has been quite a bit of critisism about the course. some of the holes because of the size of the greens can be a PAR4 one day and a PAR5 so keep..
Trainers to follow in May
by Scratville on 30 Apr at 23:19
We roll on to May at +£34.85 LSP for the year. April was a frustrating month especially towards the end when we had numerous decent priced placed horses. May has been indifferent in the last two years with a tiny profit in 2014 and a tiny loss in 2013. We have a couple of really strong performers however in both those years, hopefully we can add a few newbies and improve our already healthy LSP. We have 12 trainers this month, most are National Hunt trainers but it should still be a busy month ahead. FLAT TURF RICHARD HANNON (2yo's) Back in the blog for a third year, some of the figures below are Hannon (Snr) 2010 14/58 24% +£18.07 2011 11/60 18% +£ 4.99 2012 ..
MLB Review - We 02.05.15
by undertherobe on 03 May at 10:58
Another week down in baseball and we’re now through the first month. Perhaps the biggest surprise so far is the Houston Astros building a six game lead at the top of the AL West and only the St. Louis Cardinals have a better record than the Astros but how will the absence of star pitcher Adam Wainwright affect the Cardinals moving forward? Picks Review It was a mixed start this week with a loose 4th inning from both DeSclafani and the field costing Anthony DeSclafani and the Reds in a 5-2 loss to the Cubs. Outside of that, DeSclafani pitched fairly well and finished with a line of 5 IP, 5 H, 1 ER, 5 SO There were no such problems down in Tampa as Chris Archer shut down the Blue Jays in another dominant performance which saw the Rays run out..
Championship Play-offs Preview & Selections
by botev1921 on 02 May at 16:11
Oh, poor Derby County had to suffer a heart-breaking end of what could have been an amazing season for them as they only had to take down out of shape Reading at home, but somehow managed to screw this up and that opened the window of opportunity for Brentford to storm not only into the playoffs, but manage to pass Ipswich as well for fifth place. Now the real battle for four teams begins as the grand prize is just three games away. There are favourites and outsiders, there are teams in form and out of form, but in the end there is no better way to end the long Championship season than a direct clash between those who were so close but ended just short on the automatic promotion places. Just like in my Conference preview, I will take..
