  • Euro 2016 - Yellow & Red Cards

    Micko70 on 29 May at 21:54

    In this blog i am looking at Yellow & Red Cards in this summers European Championships. I have looked back at the last 3 tournaments and also looked at the qualifying tournament and how many Yellow & red Cards each qualifying nation received, and used friendly games for the hosts France over the same period. The rules regarding being the last man have slightly changed, meaning that a player who denies a clear goal scoring opportunity will no receive a guaranteed red card, although this is quite big, i don't think it will make a huge difference to the amount of cards dished out. Click HERE to read the OLBG forum thread on bookings throughout the tournament Euro 2012 In Euro 2012 there were 31 games in total, 24 in the group stages and 7 knockout games. Group A had 26 yellows, 1 red and 1…

  • Hungary Best Bets and Analysis For Euro 2016

    RACHACE on 26 May at 12:23

    Euro 2016 Team Review Hungary Hello and welcome to the blog. This is a blog looking at the Hungarian squad for the upcoming Euro 2016 Championships being held in France this summer. The aim is to hopefully highlight a few profitable betting angles based on Hungary's chance's in the tournament. I have very little knowledge on Hungary as a footballing nation based on the fact that I've never seen them compete in the Euro's nor the World Cup since I started watching football as an 8 year old in 1990. Countries of similar size and success like say Bulgaria, Romania or Croatia have all had an impact in the major tournament's that I've grown up watching and familiarising myself with but Hungary have never featured. Despite this, Hungary as a footballing nation are actually more famous than you…

    Micko70 on 30 May at 22:25

    The Investec Derby is the biggest race of the flat racing season for 3yo's, run at Epsom Downs Racecourse and is run over a trip of 1m 4f & 10y, it is a Group 1 and takes place in June. I have looked at the last 20 runnings of the race and looked at the following trends - Official Rating, Last Time Out, Last Run, Career Runs, Career Wins, Distance, Group Form, Sire Index & Previous Runs.. Any horse passing a trend will score the points for that trend and the horse with the most overall points will be the selection for the race. 5 day entries - 22-13 Across The Stars(28) 3 9-0 Sir Michael Stoute 103 41-21 Algometer(15) 3 9-0 David Simcock 106 32-341 Beacon Rock(13) 3 9-0 A P O´Brien 108 5-134 Biodynamic(30) 3 9-0 K R Burke 94 2-614 Bravery(14) 3 9-0 A P O´Brien 103 132-11 Cloth Of Stars(27) 3 9-0 A Fabre 1125-2 Deauville(23) 3 9-0 A P O´Brien 114 5-11 Harzand(55) 3 9-0 D K Weld 110 24-421 Humphrey Bogart(28) 3 9-0 Richard Hannon 101 14-23 Idaho(27) 3 9-0 A…

  • Prince Of Wales's Stakes at Royal Ascot Key Race Trends - 15 June 2016

    Robmull on 29 May at 16:41

    The Prince Of Wales’s Stakes is a Group 1 race for runners aged 4 years and older which is run over 1 mile and 2 furlongs at Ascot on Wednesday, 15 June 2016 and is the feature race on the second day of the Royal Ascot meeting. During the past decade, 5 market leaders have obliged at odds ranging from 4/5 to 5/2 for a LSP of 3.67 pts, with the remaining 5 further winners starting at odds of 8/1 or shorter, which suggests that this is a good race for well fancied runners. It is also worth noting that 3 Irish trained runners have won the race (Aidan O’Brien has saddled 2 winners) during the past decade, whilst French stable's have also collected on 3 occasions (2 winners for Champion French trainer Andre Fabre) during the period. Although there…

  • The Flat 2016 Diary And Review Part 2 : Horses To Note For The Derby and Royal Ascot

    The Market Man on 30 May at 19:52

    The Flat 2016 Diary And Review Part 2 : Horses To Note For The Derby and Royal Ascot We start the second part of the diary with a quick review of it's predecessor and those of you who read part 1 will hopefully have followed several of the horses mentioned as it proved a successful month, with 9-1 Dante winner Wings Of Desire being the highlight amongst several winners. He's now a short priced contender for the Investec Derby at Epsom - but more of that later. April finished with the season's first classic in the form of the Qipco 2,000 Guineas and it was Frankie Dettori who struck on Galileo Gold for trainer Hugo Palmer and owners Al Shaqab Racing. Frankie at his finest, riding with confidence and urging the colt to victory by over a length. His chances…

  • Prix Du Jockey Club at Chantilly Key Race Trends - 5 June 2016

    Robmull on 31 May at 17:10

    The Prix Du Jockey Club is a Group 1 race for colts and fillies aged 3 years old which is run over 1 mile and 2 1/2 furlongs at Chantilly on Sunday, 5 June 2016 and is probably better know to most UK punters as the French Derby. During the past decade, only 2 market leaders (including 1 joint favourite) have obliged for a loss of 4.63 pts, with just 1 further winner starting at single figure odds, whilst the exceptions were sent off at odds of 119/10, 12/1 x 2, 14/1 x 2, 16/1 and 25/1, which suggests that it often pays to look beyond the market leaders for the winner of this race. It is also worth noting that 9 of the past 10 winners of the Prix Du Jockey Club were trained in France, of which Andre…
