National Hunt and Winter Jumps Racing 2015/2016 - Part One
by The Market Man on 31 Aug at 22:32
September is on the horizon and the National Hunt meetings begin to increase in both frequency and quality. Over the next few weeks i'll be taking a look at the Winter season ahead with a view to highlighting both the horses to follow and the races to be aware of with a view to the Cheltenham Festival next March - trainers, like the rest of us, have habits and routines and spotting them can provide us with a clearer picture of their runners and riders. Last season i highlighted Many Clouds as one of two horses to follow and what a year the Oliver Sherwood trained gelding had, bookending the season with wins in arguably the two biggest handicaps of them all - the Hennessy Gold Cup and the Grand National The man they all have to beat, the..

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..
Italian GP - Monza
by Ralfie1982 on 31 Aug at 22:09
Italian Grand Prix So Lewis controlled the race in Belgium (Spa) with out too much problem and as you will see from the comments below we might well see a precesion again here in Italy, but I will put a couple of other tips that might be of value. Ok, on to the race, of the current grid drivers there are only two who have wins here and that is Vettel (3) and Hamilton (2). It is a race that is one of the fastest of the season. New Regulations - Start Proceedure We saw this come in at the Spa grand prix and on face value it appears to have made no major difference, maybe because everyone spent so much time getting it right that time out and I think it will be more apparent this time with a..
2015/16 Fifty National Hunt Horses To Follow ( Part One ) Numbers 1 to 25
by The Executioner on 28 Aug at 15:29
We've not got long to wait before the National Hunt Season really kicks in to action. We're just around six weeks away from when the leading stables will be starting to get their string prepared for some of the better early season contests. Over the last two months or so I have spent many hours delving through the form and watching many replays of some of last season's races , in the hope of creating a list of horses to follow over the course of the winter months. Some names will be familiar to some of you and other won't be. I've tried to include a good mixture of potential novice hurdlers , potential novice chasers , handicap prospects over both hurdles and fences , and also a few horses yet to race under National Hunt rules but have the..
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..
US Open ATP Draw Analysis
by botev1921 on 27 Aug at 21:00
The last Grand Slam of the season is upon us and the tradition of me offering a complete quarter by quarter preview in the form of a blog must continue. Last season US Open proved to be one of the most unpredictable when it comes to ATP tennis and while again there are obvious favourites who would fancy their chances, some of the lower seeds surely impressed during the hard court season and all year in general. As the season nears to a close, some of the less physical favourites often have problems and point out fatigue as one of the reasons why they are on a decline after the summer. At the same time, those who have been a bit less prominent at the big stage get a better shot at something big if they managed to keep enough..

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...
