What I Have Learned From Cheltenham
by garethp1981 on 22 Mar at 20:46
The end of the festival is now over a week ago and I thought it would be good to record on this blog what I think can be learned from the greatest show on turf. I was lucky enough to be able to go to the first day, so my view are perhaps coloured a bit by this, but I did think there were things to be learned from each of the four days. Douvan Is One To Look Out For Much of the talk before day one was about a Willie Mullins and Ruby Walsh winning the four Grade One Races on the Tuesday. To do this Ruby needed to start the festival by winning on Douvan and it was to the delight of a very noisy Cheltenham crowd that he did so. I personally thought that Douvan was the..
Race to the Stanley Cup playoffs - who will take the 8th seed in the East?
by Epic on 26 Mar at 18:55
With just over two weeks to go until the end of the NHL regular season, you can already feel the playoff atmosphere in certain games. Like LA Kings' defenseman Drew Doughty said this week - it's already playoffs for them. A lackluster first half of the season has left the defending Stanley Cup champs scrambling for a playoff berth. And they aren't alone. The Boston Bruins are another big club, which is struggling to make it to the playoffs. This after winning the Presidents Trophy last year for the best regular season record. The Bruins face a big battle to climb back to the Eastern Conference's Top 8. Even with poor form, the Bruins held on to the final playoff spot in the East for quite a while, but this week the Ottawa Senators finally grabbed it to themselves. A month..

by meoldmate on 24 Mar at 22:37
DONCASTER, THE LINCOLN The start of the new flat season is nearly upon us and the national hunt scene, looks to be put on the back burner, so to speak. Doncaster flat scene use to be kicked off with the Brocklesbury on the Thursday and this was seen on Channel four but now, the meeting starts on a Saturday, which we still able to enjoy with the channel four team, along with Attheraces for the rest of the meeting. The big race of the day is The Lincoln, a race over a mile with a field of runners stretched across the Town Moore.

PREMIERSHIP STATISTICS from some different angles - March update.
by davidg3907 on 27 Mar at 14:26
At the commencement of the season I decided to look at some stats from slightly different angles, searching for a profitable trend slightly off the beaten track. The stats will be generic rather than team specific initially but may be segregated later in the season once more data has been collected. At the end of the season some will also be split into Home and Away format. BACKGROUND TO THE STATISTICS During the early part of the campaign a few unexpected results will ( and indeed did ) inevitably occur. Some of those may turn out not to be shocks as the season progresses and form settles but they need to stay in the statistics. However, a few things did come as a surprise. Let’s look at the stats and see what has developed as we are now 3/4 of the way..
