  • NFL College Draft Review

    Gman84 on 03 May at 10:50

    The NFL Draft took place this past weekend and now all the selections have been made it’s time to review the possible impact of what has happened on the upcoming NFL season. Rather than offer a team by team review I’ve decided just to focus on certain aspects and selections which I believe will be key in 2016. The Early Selections The opening two selections were no surprise as the Los Angeles Rams and Philadelphia Eagles - both of whom had traded up to the number 1 and 2 picks respective - took Quarterbacks. The Rams need was clear and top overall selection Jared Goff of California will likely be the opening day starter for a team that believes the position is the key to pushing them back towards postseason. The Eagles decision to add Carson Wentz of North Dakota State is…

  • Betway Chester Cup Key Race Trends - 4 May 2016

    Robmull on 29 Apr at 15:29

    The Betway Chester Cup is a Class 2 Heritage Handicap flat race which is run over 2 miles, 2 furlongs and 147 yards at Chester on Wednesday, 4 May 2016. With a maximum field size of 17 runners racing around this historic track which is less than 1 mile in circumference and includes notoriously tight bends and a relatively short finishing straight, the Betway Chester Cup is often a fiendishly difficult race for punters to assess. During the past decade only 1 favourite (7/1) has obliged for a loss of 2.00 points, although 5 of the remaining 9 winners were, sent off at odds of 10/1 or shorter, with the exceptions starting at 12/1, 14/1, 28/1 and 33/1. With all of the last 7 winners starting at odds that were no bigger than 12/1, it suggests the winner of…

    Robmull on 04 May at 16:01

    The Investec Derby is scheduled to be run on Saturday, 4 June 2016 at Epsom and is the premier Classic race of the season. This Group 1 classic is run 1 mile , 4 furlongs and 10 yards over the enigmatic switchback course and is open to entire colts (geldings are ineligible) and fillies, albeit it is unusual for the fairer sex to participate, as they normally contest the Investec Oaks on the previous day. During the past decade, 4 market leaders have obliged for a Loss of 1.14 pts, however all of the remaining winners have started at odds of 7/1 or shorter, which suggests that this is a good race for well fancied runners, albeit plenty of placed runners have been sent off a much bigger prices. It is also worth noting that Irish champion trainer, Aidan O’Brien has…
