by jimmywomble on 25 Nov at 23:40
Nitties to Upstage Big Names at Australian Open There’s a move to Sydney this week for the Australian Tour as they combine with the OneAsia Tour for the Emirates Australian Open. Last year this was the final leg of the Triple Crown and Adam Scott was denied taking the Crown by Rory McIlroy on the very last hole. That was at the Royal Sydney GC but this year it moves away from Sydney Harbour down towards Botany Bay and the Australian GC which has hosted this event several times in the past, most recently in 2004 & 2007. It’s an early evening start UK time around 7.45pm on Wednesday 26th November. The Course & Past Winners Its 110 years since the Australian Open was first held and the winner then was the Honourable Michael Scott. It too was..
Saunders v Eubank - Saturday - BoxNation
by FrankieMonkhouse on 24 Nov at 09:45
One of the most talked about domestic fights in recent years goes ahead in London on Saturday when unbeaten pair Billy Joe Saunders and Chris Eubank Jnr clash for British, Commonwealth and European middleweight titles. It’s an old cliché in the fight game, somebodies ‘0’ has to go, but don’t we just love it! BoxNation screen all of the action live from the ExCel Arena and bookmakers give fans the chance to back their opinions up with a bet. This fight has split opinion right down the middle and odds compilers have taken up their position on the fence with little to separate the warring pair in the betting. 25-year-old Billy Joe Saunders signed professional terms with promoter Frank Warren after a hugely impressive career in the amateur ranks which culminated with an appearance at the 2008 Olympic Games in Beijing...
All Draws Multiple Strategy - The Challenge Returns
by tbuckley on 26 Nov at 01:27
All Draws Multiple Strategy - The Challenge Returns I absolutely love taking on a challenge, especially a football betting related one that can hopefully offer fun, interest and help to people. A few months ago, fellow OLBG member Josephfred350 posted on another blog to say that he couldn't find anybody who covered specifically selecting draws so I saw as the challenge for me and it's one that I really could not resist. I did the All Draw Multiples Challenge for 4 weeks and really enjoyed it, results were up and down, much like this season in general, but overall with bets done to 10p unit stake, I staked £15.00 in total on all draw multiples and returned £23.38, returning a profit of £8.38, or 58% profit for those that like the percentages. That 4 week phase of the All Draw Multiple challenge was..

The Hennessy is a staying handicap chase that is steeped in history, run over 3 miles two and a half furlongs at Newbury, it was established back in 1957 ( the first three runnings were at Cheltenham ) and is open to horses aged four years old and upwards. The first winner of the race was Mandarin ( also took the race in 1961 ) and he was owned by Peggy Hennessy who was a member of the sponsors family. Legends of the turf such as Arkle ( 1964 & 65 ) , Mill House ( ‘63 ) etched their names on the victory roll of honour and also won the Cheltenham Gold Cup at the festival in March, as too did Bregawn ( ’82) , Burrough Hill Lad ( ’84 ) , Denman ( ’07 & ’09..
A Blue Point of View
by RACHACE on 26 Nov at 19:05
Southampton v Manchester City Sunday 30th November (13:30 ko) Preview Firstly welcome to my blog and my preview on Premier League matches involving my club Manchester City. This week I'll be writing about our 13th Premier League match this season. We travel down to the south coast to take on the very impressive Southampton at St Mary's stadium. As said above, Southampton have been very, very impressive so far this season. During the summer Saints fans had witnessed their side that was so impressive last season ripped apart. The side that managed to finish 8th in the Premier League was decimated as players like Luke Shaw, Dejan Loveren, Callum Chambers, Adam Lallana & Ricky Lambert were all sold to bigger clubs. They also loaned out the likes of Gaston Ramirez, Pablo Osvaldo & Artur Boruc..
Super Sunday: Saints Face Biggest Test Against Man City - The Southampton Perspective
by danbradley on 27 Nov at 09:49
Super Sunday: Saints Face Biggest Test against Man City - The Southampton Perspective Saints are on the tele again this week, however their opponents on Sunday are of a far more fearsome nature. Fresh from beating Champions League favourite Bayern Munich, Man City come to St Marys with fresh confidence and a striker who looks ready to be this year’s Luis Suarez, a player whose individual performances outshine everyone else in the league. Southampton certainly face a difficult challenge but can take heart from a decent record against the Champions since returning to the Premier League a few seasons ago, with a record of W1, D1 and L2. When thinking that Saints actually led for long periods of the first of those losses as well, and were very unlucky to lose, Southampton seem to be a good match for City even..
20/1 shot for the Hennessy Gold Cup (Updated 27th Nov)
by Micko70 on 24 Nov at 23:08
The Hennessy Gold Cup is a top class handicap chase that is run at Newbury in either late November or early December. The race is run over 3 miles 2 and a half furlongs and 21 fences will be jumped during the race. Could we see this years Cheltenham Gold Cup winner running in this race, both Bob's Worth & Denman have won this race before winning the Gold Cup, in total 8 horses have won this race before going to glory in the Gold Cup in their careers. I am using 10 trends for this race, they are Age, Weight, Official Rating, Last Time Out, Last Run, Year Runs, Year Wins, Chase Wins, Graded Wins & Distance Any horse passing a trend with 10 gets 5 points, a 9 gets 4 points, an 8 gets 3 points, a 7 gets 2 points..
