  • Betfred Ebor at York Key Race Trends - 20 August 2016

    Robmull on 23 Jul at 15:33

    The Betfred Ebor is a Class 2 Heritage Handicap for runners aged 3 years and older, which is run over 1 mile and 6 furlongs at York on Saturday, 20 August 2016 and is traditionally the big betting race of the fourth and final day of the York Ebor Festival. With an average field size of just under 17 runners during the past decade, the Betfred Ebor often provides an fiendishly difficult puzzle for punters to assess, especially as the draw can often have a major impact on the outcome of the race, which often surprises punters in light of the extended race distance. During the past decade (9 races, as the 2008 renewal was abandoned) only 1 market leader (7/2) has obliged for a Loss of 5.50 points, whilst just 1 of the remaining 9 winners was sent off…

  • Glorious Goodwood - a look at the Betfred Mile and Qatar Stewards Cup

    The Market Man on 24 Jul at 20:14

    Glorious Goodwood - a look at the Betfred Mile and Qatar Stewards Cup This is indisputably one of my favourite weeks of the year - Goodwood and Galway provide us with great racing from both flat and jumps, each course with it's own idiosyncrasies and trainers who take advantage of them. I've written a separate blog for Galway so we can concentrate here on the action on the Sussex Downs... The Betfred Mile : Class 2 handicap Known as the Golden Mile to most. A right hand turn halfway through the race means the draw can be influential when making a selection. The last three years, the first three home started from the first ten stalls. In 2012 it was the first two home. Experience of Goodwood or Epsom, another undulating track with a downhill straight which tests the balance of horses…

  • MLB - Advantage American League?

    undertherobe on 24 Jul at 14:31

    We’re now ten days into the second half of the season and the race for October is starting to heat up. No team leads their division by more than seven games and we could see multiple divisions go right down to the wire. This week’s blog looks at three pitchers who have raced away to an excellent post All-Star break record and asks the question if it’s advantage American League after their All-Star game win..... Picks Review MADISON BUMGARNER closed the first half of the season with a one hitter as he utterly dominated the Arizona Diamondbacks and after he was held out of the All-Star game, hopes were high that he’d hit the ground running after the break but it wasn’t to be as he got roughed up by the Padres and whilst he kept the Yankees in check for the…

  • The Best Premier League 2016/17 Summer Transfers so far

    bobslay13 on 25 Jul at 17:05

    The Best Premier League 2016/17 Summer Transfers so far Henrikh Mkhitaryan to Manchester United The Armenian playmaker had his best ever season last year for Dortmund under Thomas Tuchel, scoring 11 and assisting a whopping 15 goals in just 34 Bundesliga games. With his team not qualifying for Euro 2016 he should be fresh and looks exactly the kind of player Man United need at the head of the diamond. Mkhitaryan has been praised for his technique, movement, accurate passing, dribbling, creativity, ball control and work rate. He is equipped with a dangerous shot, trickery to beat defenders, and a superb vision to go for the pass. You would probably liken him to Frank Lampard in terms of his goal-scoring ability from midfield. Being Armenia’s standout player also means he is well equipped to having a lot of pressure on his shoulders. He’s an…

  • Premiership Relegation Markets - Analysis and Preview

    botev1921 on 28 Jul at 00:07

    We are getting closer to the start of the season and as always, people try to get ahead of the game and figure some long-term selections, which can make the whole year ahead that little bit more exciting. For me, examining the various Premiership markets while some players are still on their holidays is interesting enough and while I prefer the weekly betting, there are certain selections that one must not miss. Imagine how exciting last season must have been for those who backed Leicester or who were waiting on Harry Kane to top the goalscorers list. This time around, I doubt there will be another Leicester fairytale but examining those markets is still interesting enough in late July while teams are still revamping their line-ups and doing the usual summer tours around the world. RELEGATION FAVOURITES Last season I was firm…
