by man o bong on 03 Dec at 19:30
The first real full month of the national Hunt season is in the box and we have several big races to asses the form of. I am looking to review each month as it passes en-route to the Cheltenham Festival Where did runners catch the eye? Where did they need the run? Can we take anything from the form just yet? Early season form can be quite difficult to asses and we will see examples of this as we take a look back at November and races such as the Charlie Hall, Haldon Gold Cup, Paddy power Gold and Betfair Chase, over fences, whilst Over hurdles, the likes of the Greatwood Hurdle and Long Distance at Newbury to unpick Charlie Hall Chase - Wetherby 1st 4 Harry Topper K C Bailey 6 11-6 J M Maguire 5/1 Held up, jumped slowly 1st, blundered next, not fluent 9th, headway on outside 11th, challenged 4 out,..

Miss Lucinda Russell Stable Runners To Follow (part Five)
by meoldmate on 28 Nov at 23:00
This Friday we see two more of the Miss Lucinda Russell horses to follow with the selected few from this stable. CLONDAW KNIGHT Five year old who made a good impression, when appearing at Kelso and winning a novice handicap chase by four lengths from Surprise Vendor. His jumping was perfect and really a likeable horse to follow. The first of two runners for today, runs at Doncaster and the the other runner from Musselburgh. 1.20 DONCASTER NOVICE HANDICAP CHASE DISTANCE THREE MILES GOING GOOD SEVEN RUNNERS . 1. THE MUMPER just had the two runs this season and looks to be improving each time, made a couple of errors at Taunton on first appearance over fences, if jumping improves, could be worthy of interest. 2. CLONDAW FLICKA stepping up in trip, could be the answer to a big run, as he was staying on..

If you like NFL and Football you'll love this - probably!!
by drobgod on 04 Dec at 15:14
Okay let's not take this too seriously, but over the last six weeks or so I've been dabbling with the NFL on a weekend. This new found love for American Football coincided with my wife watching Downton Abbey and Paradise on a Sunday evening and me struggling to remain in the same room with such drivel on in the background. Off I skipped to the bedroom, where I also have Sky Sports installed for such traumatic times as stated above, and tuned in to find around six hours of American Football being streamed live. Now as boring as those period dramas mentioned above are, even I knew I'd have to have a little flutter on the NFL matches to get me through the night and it's because of this I've stumbled across my crazy system. When looking at the NFL..

Why Cue Card is a steal at 11/4 for the King George
How good is very good? Cue Card, on Saturday, won the Grade 1 Betfair Chase at Haydock by 4 ½ lengths. This, I hope, won’t be news to most readers. In doing so he provided the answer to a long standing...
