Goodwood Tuesday SKY BET FIRST RACE SPECIAL STAKES (Handicap)
by meoldmate on 27 Jul at 13:41
Glorious Goodwood , especially when the sun is shining, with the backdrop of the South Downs in full view. When the weather is on the wet side Goodwood is not so glorious, more gloomy and can be very damp indeed. Hopefully the weather will be good for race goers and give the strawberries and cream that extra special taste and the strawhats can stay on the gentleman head’s with vigour and not look washed out. We have a good week coming towards us, with racing from this undulated course, where there will be many hard luck stories. If the ground is riding fast then all the action will be on the far side of the track, if the rain appears and turns the surface soft to heavy, then the fields will be heading over to the stand side and middle of the track,..

Premier League 2015/16 - an Ante-Post bet for every team
by tbuckley on 22 Jul at 00:17
Premier League 2015/16 - an Ante-Post bet for every team Ahead of every new football season or major football tournament, I love setting myself different betting related challenges and one of my favourite, thankfully most productive challenge is to set myself the task of finding a valid, interesting and hopefully value ante-post bet for every Premier League team. The motivation for the challenge is to add interest and of course also search out great betting opportunities, it's always tough to come up with a ante-post bet for every Premier League team and I must say I've found it more demanding this pre-season as there are so many questions to be answered and in terms of final playing squads those questions won't be answered until the transfer window shuts beginning of September. Over the last few weeks I've looked at a wide range..

My build up to the new Premier League season started a couple of weeks ago with thoughts and studies focused on looking at the Ante-post markets to look for the range of bets I always like to have going into each season, the blog on Ante-post bets for Every Premier League team is available in blog section. Another part of the process for building up to a new season is to look at different areas of the Premier League ie top 6, top 10 and relegation battle, looking at..
