  • The Chinese Super League Becomes A Footballing Super Power

    LustForLeith on 03 Feb at 16:49

    ‎  ‎ ‎ ‎ ‎ The Chinese Super League Becomes A Super Footballing Force     Osman Sow. Hardly a well known name in football unless perhaps you support Hearts. But he’s suddenly just become one of the most interesting names around.   The striker has been at the Edinburgh club since the summer of 2014 where he’s scored twenty goals in forty four games. With less than six months remaining on his contract there was speculation if he’d be staying at Hearts on moving on.   He’s moving on and in spectacular fashion.   The Swede is set to join Henan Jianye in the Chinese Super League for an amazing £1.5 million. There’s no doubt the forward can score goals but it seems a lot to be paying for a player who is out of contract in the summer. However he’s not the only big money transfer heading to China.   Talent such as Chelsea…

  • In Form Trainers - 1 to 7 February 2016

    Robmull on 31 Jan at 12:36

    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 and have recorded a level stake profit across all of their runners 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 202 and will also highlight any jockeys that have been profitable to follow when teaming up with our in form trainers, during 2015/16. 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…

  • Racing At Meydan Preview - 4 February 2016

    Robmull on 02 Feb at 15:19

    The purpose of this blog is to provide readers with information in relation to speed ratings and running styles for the declared runners, plus draw and pace biases for the track, which I hope will provide us with some good priced winners during the afternoon. Having reviewed my betting records for Meydan during the 2015 Carnival, I realised that my wagers in the turf races were exceptionally poor, whilst profits were reasonable in the races on the dirt track. Therefore, I have decided that I will focus both my regular blogs and personal betting on the dirt races for the rest of the Carnival. This scenario has continued during the first 4 weeks of the 2016 Carnival, whereby the main and first alternative selections have provided 9 winners from 30 wagers (15 races) for a LSP of 8.96 pts. This…

    davidg3907 on 01 Feb at 10:44

    With 230 matches played it is again time to revisit some of the theories considered at the end of last season and see whether similar patterns are emerging. To avoid clutter, the explanations and tables have been omitted but remain on the original blogs. A full breakdown will be posted at the end of the season for comparison. Over the past 8 seasons, there have been approximately 70% home favourites ( exactly 70% last season). That was the case at the half-way point this season too, but now the figure stands at 69.57% (160/230). RESULT OF THE MATCH Based on HOME DRAW AWAY Level stake bets of 1 point on each result for each of the 380 matches last season show the following returns. 58/114 ( 50.88% ) of away favs have won and 142/266 ( 53.38% ) of home favs have won. 26/114…
