In Form Trainers - 31 August to 6 September
by Robmull on 30 Aug at 16:36
The purpose of this blog is to highlight trainers in Britain that are currently in good form based on a minimum of 5 winners at a strike rate of 20% or more during the last 14 days up to the close of racing on Saturday. In addition, I will endeavour to list where these trainers have horses entered at racecourses over the forthcoming week where the trainer has been profitable to follow since the start of 2011 and will also highlight any jockeys that have been profitable to follow when teaming up with our in form trainers, during 2015. There is an old saying that states that success breeds further success and whilst most training stables come in and out of form during the year, it often pays to keep a close eye on a trainer’s runners when the stable..
MLB: Four teams close to breaking long postseason droughts
by undertherobe on 30 Aug at 12:57
As we head into the final full month of the regular season, the playoff race continues to gather pace. Only one Division, the AL Central, is all but settled with Kansas City holding a 14 game lead and with September full of divisional matchups, there are going to be plenty of twists and turns over the final five weeks of the season. This week’s blog looks at four teams who are close to breaking long postseason droughts and I find another three pitchers to watch this week..... Picks Review Once again, the Los Angeles Dodgers bullpen ruined a solid start from one of their starters as they lost 3-2 to the Houston Astros on Sunday after a stellar performance from Clayton Kershaw. Kershaw was lights out as he went 8 IP, 7 H, 1 ER, 10 SO. On Monday night it was all..
Serena Williams - Can she win the Calendar Year Grand Slam?
by The rabbit on 30 Aug at 15:10
Serena Williams will be attempting to win her first Calendar Year Grand Slam and her 22nd Grand Slam title when she competes in the US Open which begins on the 31st August 2015. Serena Williams is making her 16th appearance at this Grand Slam which she has won on six occasions including last year and in 2012 and in 2013. She has won all four of the Grand Slam titles in her career and has won all of the other Grand Slams this year including the Australian Open. She is presently ranked as the number one player in the world and is the number one seed this week. The US Open is the final one of the four annual Grand Slams to take place and it is held at Flushing Meadows in New York City and the surface is hard court. The..
Trainers to follow in September
by Scratville on 01 Sep at 02:01
A fantastic August means we are close to +£100 LSP for the year and with September historically being a profitable month, (+£12 and +£55) in the last two years it's an exciting month in prospect. Ten trainers to follow this month with five returning from last year, the NH trainers look particularly strong this month. FLAT TURF JOHN GOSDEN (ALL) A returnee from last month and last September where he gave us some nice profits. 2010 18/81 22% +£12.77 2011 14/74 19% (£ 1.48) 2012 13/59 22% +£ 6.94 2013 7/49 14% (£ 1.05) 2014 15/60 25% +£40.17 Although we are including all his horse, he does particular well with his two years olds in September. JOHN QUINN (3YO+) North Yorkshire trainer who has appeared on the blog in both guises in the past, just his older horses this month. 2011 1/28 4% ..
Ladbrokes St. Leger 2015 - Ante Post Win Bet
by jamiess09 on 02 Sep at 21:56
This years St. Leger Stakes does not have a star attraction and I can see plenty of reasons to take on the two horses at the head of most ante post lists right now in Order of St. George and Storm The Stars. When looking for an alternative to those two, a runner by John Gosden is always worth a second look in this race as he has won this race 3 times since 2007, however his runner Mr. Singh won an average renewal of the Bahrain Trophy at Newmarket in July and at 5/1 he is of little interest for me. Bondi Beach looks the class horse in this race for me and can be backed with most firms right now at 5/1, which looks generous. I think he was beaten fair and square the last day at York, despite..

BetFred Sprint Cup Group 1 Haydock preview
by DAVIDADAN on 01 Sep at 01:16
The Betfred Sprint Cup is a Group 1 flat race for horses aged three years or older. It is run annually at Haydock Park over a distance of 6 furlongs. Currently John Gosden is the Leading Trainer - 4 Winners and Sheik Mohammed is the Leading Owner - 4 Winners Alas this race comes too soon for Muhaarar from the prestigious stable of Sheik Hamdan Al Maktoum whose three time Gp1 winner Charlie Hills will most likely see that he heads to Champions Day at Ascot or maybe later America beckons in the Breeders Cup Mile, please do keep that one on side where ever he goes, do note his previous wins and discount future progress at your peril the latter option seems folly to ignore! From my Ante Post thoughts Henry Candys Limato would have been my first choice however I can,t..

Can a bet of the week from each English League make a winning accumulator?
In the past I've rarely dabbled with accumulators as my approach to betting has been the softly softly approach to building up a bank. A quick look through the forum and you'll find a wide range of reasons amongst OLBG...
