by meoldmate on 24 Feb at 23:10
I will be building this blog on a daily basis 2.40 ULTIMA BUSINESS SOLUTIONS HANDICAP CHASE GRADE 3 DISTANCE 3M 1F OLD COURSE This race is the third on the card for the first day of the festival and the bookies have already placed up the odds for the declared runners for this race, which most punters would of notice and possibly thinking of placing a wager of some sort, with the ruling of non runner no bet, with this, you will know if your selection is withdrawn, your wager is not lost. At this time of process, there are 89 declarations and BET365 have priced up NED STARK at 8/1 or the way down to AMERICAN SPIN at 100/1. With so many declared, how can anyone be capable of pointing out a winner or even a placed selection, as many of these will..

by Micko70 on 25 Feb at 23:26
The Grimthorpe Chase is a Class 2 Handicap Chase run at Doncaster at either the end of February or the beginning of March. The race used to be run over 3 miles but the race was not run in 2006 & 2007 and when Doncaster brought the race back in 2008, the changed the distance by an extra 2 furlongs, so the race is now run over 3m 2f. The 2015 running is being sponsored by Betbright, who have sponsored quite a few big races recently. As usual, i am looking at 8 trends for the race, they are Age, Weight, Official Rating, Last Time Out, Last Run, Season Runs, Season Wins & Distance Horses will score points depending on how many recent winners passed that trend, any race with a 10 will score 5 points, a 9 will score 4 points, an 8..
Nicky Henderson novice hurdlers to fly Seven Barrows' Cheltenham Flag, but "A Team" Chase more glory!
by Randy Rann on 24 Feb at 20:46
Nicky Henderson media day, gets the Cheltenham Festival juices flowing! A lucky invite as Dean's (Drobgod) wingman was gratefully accepted as the Cheltenham bound charabanc parked itself on the Seven Barrows lawn, as trainer Nicky Henderson opened his doors once again to the media scrum. After ditching the Sat-Nav and following our noses we made it just in time for the parade of stable stars. L'AMI SERGE was first out of the boxes and quite apt too, as the Grade 1 winning novice hurdler gets the ball rolling in the curtain raising Supreme Novice in exactly a fortnight's time. He looked well, but they all did and Henderson was confident he'd run well. He didn't say he was scared of Willie Mullins's hotpot Douvan, but did say he can't worry about what armoury his rival has got and just dream about what's in store for..

by undertherobe on 26 Feb at 23:47
Just two Saturday’s left in the regular season and this weekend sees some monster matchups. The action gets underway at 4pm UK time and goes right through to the last tip-off at 5am on Sunday morning if you’re a fan of either UC Irvine or UC Santa Barbara. Once again, the coverage of College Basketball is superb with College Gameday kicking off proceedings at 3pm on ESPN and then eight live games including Syracuse at Duke and Arizona at Utah. So with another basketball filled weekend on tap, it’s time to preview some games and hunt down the value. Iowa State Cyclones (12) @ Kansas State Wildcats It’s been a season to forget for Kansas State and whilst a shot at the NCAA Tournament is still a long shot, their season may have turned as they beat rivals Kansas on Monday night to derail..
