Premiership Relegation Update. A Diary Of Trading Part 4.
by davidg3907 on 17 Dec at 23:13
The diary continues to grow and the earlier entries have been left on record with additions in bold text. Win or lose this will be a diary of bets made and ongoing suggestions until the end of the year when predictions of final points and finishing positions will be made. That will be slightly earlier than last season so more scope for either a decent profit or a large portion of egg on face. SOUTHAMPTON Backed at 8.6 now best priced 6.6. Mid Sept. A few good results have seen them drift to 32. Rather than create another large liability I shall let this one run for the moment. October break. Nothing much has changed other than I have now created a larger liability for similar amount as other bets. November break. They continue to surprise and once I had some larger liabilities in the..
Laying Experiment - Analysis
by garethp1981 on 15 Dec at 20:31
One problem I have here is that I do not have details of all the market prices at various stages on Betfair, I only recorded the prices for the horses that I layed. What I do have are the SPs according to the website Sporting Life. The prices of the horses on Betfair are of course not the same as this, so I can’t compare apples with oranges. But I do think that it is worthwhile when comparing Sporting Life SPs for different horses. If I was doing the experiment again, then I would have recorded the activity on a much greater number of races, but unfortunately this thought has only come to me as I started to analyse the results. I do think that the SPs as given by the website will provide some useful information, but it will..
The Houston Rockets might just be the real deal
by Epic on 17 Dec at 15:38
Before the new NBA season started the Houston Rockets were the team, which basically made all the negative lists of the off-season. They were judged to be the losers in the free agency market and were also listed among the teams expected to take a step back during the season. It's turned out completely different though. The Rockets visit Denver tonight holding the third best record in the league. There were a number of coveted free agents on the market this summer and much like the previous years, the Rockets general manager Daryl Morey was very ambitious in his approach to go after them. Chris Bosh turned out to be the most realistic target and seemed to be in the bag until the Miami Heat power forward changed his mind and stayed in sunny Florida. To make the deal happen Morey..
Racing at Meydan, Dubai - Results, Review and Preview
by tbuckley on 15 Dec at 16:34
Racing at Meydan, Dubai - Results, Review and Preview As I've said before on my blogs covering Meydan, I'm a huge fan of the racing from Meydan and have been since 2010, I follow it with a passion, love watching it, punting on it and I always greatly look forward to the Meydan racing season starting. This week sees the 4th week of the new racing season on the dirt at Meydan and as the weeks go by I'll do my best to review the action and update with news, views and horses/trainers to follow, for those interested my last Meydan blog covered why I'm so taken by Meydan. Meydan definitely represents a real punting challenge, most definitely will be the case this year with the switch back to dirt from Tapeta, but it's a challenge well worth taking in my opinion..

The race is run over 3 miles 5 and a half furlongs and a total of 21 fences will be jumped during the race. Last years renewal had a purse of £100,000 and the winner received a very tasty £56,950.
