Cartagena de Indias at Karibana Championship Preview
by jimmywomble on 05 Mar at 11:05
Marino Continues Return to Form in Colombia The Web.com Tour returns to Colombia again this week for a new event the Cartagena de Indias at Karibana Championship presented by Prebuild, to give it it’s full moniker. It will be from the Karibana Beach Golf Condimunium or TPC Cartagena as the PGA Tour website calls it. Colombia is 5 hours behind the UK so it will get underway at 11.40am UK time on Thursday 5th March, shortly in other words. The Course Another resort style course this week as Karibana sits on the coast 5 miles or so north of the city of Cartagena. It’s an open links style course, but with plenty of water around as most holes seem to play around the lakes & creeks of the bay. Wind will play a big part as will the..
Cheltenham 2015 - A win and each way lucky 31 for 5 major races

Cheltenham 2015 - A win and each way lucky 31 for 5 major races As I sit writing this, I excitedly tell myself "just 9 days to go now until it all starts again, brilliant, can't wait" - no I'm not talking about Christmas day, or my birthday, I'm talking about the start of the Cheltenham Festival and all of you reading this who are jump racing fans will share those thoughts, I just know you will. Now I've been a fan of horse racing as a whole sport since I was a kid, trips with my family to Doncaster for the St Leger aged 10, maybe slightly younger, so I've been a fan of horse racing for a very long time indeed, getting on for 30 years now. Flat turf racing was what I was brought upon, that's what my dad..
Unreasonable reasoning - Non-scientific, irrational betting angles
by botev1921 on 01 Mar at 18:33
Over the years I have come across many logical and not so logical reasons to back a certain outcome of a sports event and to be honest, I never take anything lightly as you never know where one could find wisdom. However, I grew up a bit disgusted with certain so-called pundits or specialist in particular sports, who often get extensive coverage due to either experience or simply popularity, but ever so often the things they offer as reasoning for particular bets, are nothing short of moronic. There are countless angles to sports selections, but in my eyes (and I do not want to offend anybody who thinks those make sense) some angles are just one step too far and are simply worthless and even misleading than anything else. Since I have not posted any philosophical blog entries in a..
OLBG Mares Hurdle
by Micko70 on 01 Mar at 18:49
I have done trends for every race at the festival in different blogs, with the exception of this race as it has been dominated by Quevega (pictured) and using normal conventional trends probably won't help us pick out the winner The race has been run 7 times and Quevega won 6 of those, so i have had to look at all of the placed horses to see if anything stands out from the 21 horses placed I have looked at Age, Official Rating, Last Time Out, Last Run, Season Runs, Season Win, Grade Form & Distance The first 3 in each of the last 7 runnings were as follows - YEAR 1ST 2ND 3RD 2014 Quevega Glens Melody L'Unique 2013 Quevega Sirene D'Ainay Swincombe Flame 2012 Quevega Kentford Grey Lady Golden Sunbird 2011 Quevega Sparky May Ocean Transit 2010 Quevega Caroles legacy Voler La Vadette 2009 Quevega United Aura About You 2008 Whiteoak Refinement Chomba Womba All of the stats below are based on 21 runners but in some cases (Quevega) some cannot be counted,..

by The rabbit on 01 Mar at 14:04
Adam Scott will be competing in another World Golf Championship this week and it is the Cadillac Championship which is held at the TPC Blue Monster course at the Doral Golf Resort & Spa Club in Florida from the 5th March - 8th March 2015. The course was redesigned after the 2013 event finished and played much harder last year with the winning score being only - 4. There is no cut and it is a limited field event for most of the world's best players. This tournament is part of the FedExCup schedule and the winner will obtain 550 points. The TPC Blue Monster course has hosted this tournament since 2007 and the past eight champions of this tournament with their final scores are - 2014 - Patrick Reed - 4 2013 - Tiger Woods - 19 2012 - Justin Rose - 16 2011..
OLBG Mares Preview 2015
by drobgod on 02 Mar at 14:40
As the PR representative for OLBG.com I've been privileged to speak on quite a regular basis to the likes of Willie Mullins, Nicky Henderson and Alan King, to name just a few as they are regular supporters of our mares series. As well as that OLBG has over 50,000 members and many of them among the most knowledgeable punters around, so below with their help I hope I can give you some pointers to the real race of the Festival! Most of the build up to the 2015 OLBG.com Mares Hurdle has been surrounded by constant talk of whether the great mare Annie Power will, or even should, participate in what is the showcase event for ladies at Cheltenham. I strongly believe she'll take up her engagement in the mares contest, after all it is a Grade One event..
