  • Connacht Hotel Handicap at Galway Key Race Trends - 25 July 2016

    Robmull on 24 Jul at 16:45

    The Connacht Hotel (QR) Handicap is an extremely valuable race for runners aged 4 years and older which is run over 2 miles at Galway on Monday, 25 July 2016. With an average field size of just under 20 runners during the past decade, the Connacht Hotel Handicap often provides a fiendishly difficult puzzle for punters to assess, as the race is restricted to amateur jockeys riding horses that are often better known for their exploits over hurdles and fences rather than running in valuable flat handicaps. During the past decade only 1 market leader has obliged for a Loss of 5.00 points, whilst just 2 of the remaining 9 winners were sent off at single figure odds, with the exceptions starting at odds ranging from 10/1 to 16/1, which suggests that punters often need to look beyond the…

    Robmull on 23 Jul at 15:33

    The Betfred Ebor is a Class 2 Heritage Handicap for runners aged 3 years and older, which is run over 1 mile and 6 furlongs at York on Saturday, 20 August 2016 and is traditionally the big betting race of the fourth and final day of the York Ebor Festival. With an average field size of just under 17 runners during the past decade, the Betfred Ebor often provides an fiendishly difficult puzzle for punters to assess, especially as the draw can often have a major impact on the outcome of the race, which often surprises punters in light of the extended race distance. During the past decade (9 races, as the 2008 renewal was abandoned) only 1 market leader (7/2) has obliged for a Loss of 5.50 points, whilst just 1 of the remaining 9 winners was sent off…

  • Serie A preview and early betting tips

    ibfm23 on 24 Jul at 16:04

    Title beyond doubt? With just under a month to go Juventus have further broadened the gap. The arrivals of Benatia, Dani Alves, Pjanic and Pjaca were already enough to make them hot favorites for a sixth consecutive title. The capture of Higuain for Eur94.7m (second highest ever transfer fee) almost puts the title beyond doubt. The Bianconeri may lose Pogba to Manchester United but that would leave them with a war-chest of Eur50-70m and they are reportedly in advanced talks with Witsel to replace the Frenchman. It therefore comes to no surprise that the odds on Juventus to win the Serie A are as low as 1.5. Too short for an ante-post. Last year's challengers Roma and Napoli haven't been very active to date. The Giallorossi brought in Gerson from Fluminese, a direct swap for Pjanic, whilst the Partenopei brought in…

  • Glorious Goodwood - a look at the Betfred Mile and Qatar Stewards Cup

    The Market Man on 24 Jul at 20:14

    Glorious Goodwood - a look at the Betfred Mile and Qatar Stewards Cup This is indisputably one of my favourite weeks of the year - Goodwood and Galway provide us with great racing from both flat and jumps, each course with it's own idiosyncrasies and trainers who take advantage of them. I've written a separate blog for Galway so we can concentrate here on the action on the Sussex Downs... The Betfred Mile : Class 2 handicap Known as the Golden Mile to most. A right hand turn halfway through the race means the draw can be influential when making a selection. The last three years, the first three home started from the first ten stalls. In 2012 it was the first two home. Experience of Goodwood or Epsom, another undulating track with a downhill straight which tests the balance of horses…

  • MLB - Advantage American League?

    undertherobe on 24 Jul at 14:31

    We’re now ten days into the second half of the season and the race for October is starting to heat up. No team leads their division by more than seven games and we could see multiple divisions go right down to the wire. This week’s blog looks at three pitchers who have raced away to an excellent post All-Star break record and asks the question if it’s advantage American League after their All-Star game win..... Picks Review MADISON BUMGARNER closed the first half of the season with a one hitter as he utterly dominated the Arizona Diamondbacks and after he was held out of the All-Star game, hopes were high that he’d hit the ground running after the break but it wasn’t to be as he got roughed up by the Padres and whilst he kept the Yankees in check for the…
