Ashes Series - Betting Tips and Analysis
by drobgod on 03 Jul at 14:26
GETTING THERE BUT NOT READY YET SERIES WINNER If I were putting pen to paper with regards to who was going to win the Ashes a few months ago it would have taken me very little time to point out that England had very little chance of even winning a single test let alone the series, but there is now such a feel good factor surrounding English Cricket that we must approach our betting with a slightly different view. Under a new regime and playing in a more aggressive style, England with home advantage as well will be full of confidence, especially after their recent performances against New Zealand, although without any disrespect to the black caps Australia will undoubtedly prove tougher opposition. The positives for England are the fact that Captain Cook has rediscovered his form, Root, Stokes and..
3 year old's and the weight-for-age allowances
by nellberg1 on 03 Jul at 10:34
Weight allowances for younger horses in group 1 races With a really good Royal Ascot now over and a distinctive pecking order for horses being established, it's time to look ahead to the latter part of the season and the effect weight allowances have on some of the biggest races when the generations clash. As soon as Solow had won the Queen Anne and Gleneagles was victorious in the St. James Palace, thoughts turned to "the duel on the downs" and a possible meeting between the 2 in the Sussex Stakes. The Derby winner Golden Horn will put that form to test against older horses in the Eclipse, Impressive Tercentenary Stakes winner in pencilled in to take on the 4 year old's in the Juddmonte International and races like The King George and The Arc D'Triomphe will see a clash of..

Live MLS Soccer July 4th - 5th
by undertherobe on 04 Jul at 09:43
Another entertaining week of MLS action but unfortunately it wasn’t to be for my selections as all three went down in flames. Despite the dreadful weather conditions in Toronto, I’m still scratching my head as to how Sebastian Giovinco failed to score. Giovinco had 50% of Toronto’s 18 shots although only three made the target and he was the only Toronto player to hit the target. In the Big Apple, it started well for NYC FC as they took an early lead to go in 1-0 up at the break. Unfortunately, things quickly turned in the 2nd half and they were 2-1 down within seven minutes of the restart and were unable to claw it back. Over on the West Coast, Portland thrashed Seattle but unfortunately, I’d gone for the clean sheet option and the Sounders scored with their only effort on..

by Scratville on 30 Jun at 13:43
An awful June means we go into July with a minus £27.45 LSP for the year. July wasn't kind last year so we have a mostly new set of trainers this July. We are going with 6 flat trainers, 4 NH and one Irish Flat trainer. FLAT TURF DAVID SIMCOCK (3yo+) Suffolk trainer who crops up from time to time, usually with his AW runners. This month we will concentrate on his 3yo's and older as he has a poor record with his 2yo's at this time of year (2/27) and (£21.45 LSP) over the last 4 July's. 2011 4/39 10% +£ 8.42 2012 4/36 11% (£18.95) 2013 9/37 24% ..
Alstom Open de France Preview
by jimmywomble on 30 Jun at 20:13
Howell to Stop the Hat Trick Man in France The European Tour crosses the border from Germany into France this week with the Alstom Open de France which for the 14th year in a row will be from Le Golf National just outside Paris. Looking to make it a hat trick of wins will be Graeme McDowell who dominated in 2013 winning by 4 and last year coming from 8 back to win by a shot. Staying an hour ahead of the UK and tee times will mean they will start at 6.30am UK time on the 2nd July. The Course & Past Winners Le Golf National has hosted just about every year since 1991, only missing out in 1999 & 2001, although I’ve only looked at results since 1997. Perhaps more importantly it will be the host of the..
MIDWEEK MAKE-UP MATCHES
by wildbillsghost on 30 Jun at 18:16
There are two games to start the week, they are make-up games from earlier in the season when the four clubs here were involved in Challenge Cup games a round before the rest of the Super League teams. Both games will be shown, LIVE, on the SkySports website, but not on TV. Tuesday June 30th 2015 HULL KINGSTON ROVERS vs. SALFORD RED DEVILS 8pm KO Rovers will be a big high after cementing their place in the Challenge Cup semi-finals. It was a good performance from the Robins, but one they nearly through away. Whether it was complacency, or just a great fight-back from the Dragons, things got a lot closer for Rovers than looked possible at the break. Having raced into a 24-0 lead after just half..
