  • Racing's Biggest Problem

    garethp1981 on 31 Jan at 18:24

    The betting industry must be fair to its customers and it must also be seen to be fair. If customers can’t bet without being scared that they are being fleeced, there will be fewer of them. If fewer people are betting, this is bad for the bookmakers and bad for racing. Imagine a customer goes into a shop to buy a loaf of bread, they ask how much and the shopkeeper answers “I don’t know, we will see how many people buy bread today and depending on that we will set a price later.” This sounds ridiculous, but it is not dissimilar to what is happening when a punter takes the starting price on a horse. A bet is being agreed upon where the price is not yet known. In the UK there exists a monopoly provider of what is known…

  • totepool Scottish County Hurdle at Musselburgh Key Race Trends - 7 February 2016

    Robmull on 04 Feb at 13:39

    The totepool Supporting Scottish Racing Scottish County Hurdle is a Listed Handicap Hurdle which is run over 1 mile 7 furlongs and 124 yards at Musselburgh on Sunday, 7 February 2016. With an average field size of almost 16 runners during the past decade, the Scottish County Hurdle is an interesting race for punters to assess as although only 2 of the favourites have obliged during the past decade, a further 7 winners started at odds of 13/2 or shorter, whilst the only exception was sent off at 12/1, which suggests that this is a poor event for relatively unfancied runners. Readers of my previous Key Race Trends blogs will be aware that I normally concentrate on early closing races where the key trends for the race have been published by the Racing Post a few weeks in advance…

  • The Chinese Super League Becomes A Footballing Super Power

    LustForLeith on 03 Feb at 16:49

    ‎  ‎ ‎ ‎ ‎ The Chinese Super League Becomes A Super Footballing Force     Osman Sow. Hardly a well known name in football unless perhaps you support Hearts. But he’s suddenly just become one of the most interesting names around.   The striker has been at the Edinburgh club since the summer of 2014 where he’s scored twenty goals in forty four games. With less than six months remaining on his contract there was speculation if he’d be staying at Hearts on moving on.   He’s moving on and in spectacular fashion.   The Swede is set to join Henan Jianye in the Chinese Super League for an amazing £1.5 million. There’s no doubt the forward can score goals but it seems a lot to be paying for a player who is out of contract in the summer. However he’s not the only big money transfer heading to China.   Talent such as Chelsea…
