    The rabbit on 29 Nov at 13:00

    Henrik Stenson is competing this week in the Nedbank Golf Challenge at the Gary Player Country Club in Sun City, South Africa and he will be attempting to obtain his first golf tournament victory of 2015 and he won this event in 2008 with a final score of - 21. This event is part of the Sunshine tour and the European tour and it was established in 1981 and only 12 players used to compete in it each year but this was changed from 2013 to about 30 players. From next year the tournament will feature 72 competitors and will be played a few weeks earlier so that it is part of the finals series in the Race to Dubai. The past ten champions of this tournament with their final scores are - 2014 Danny Willett - 18 2013 Thomas Bjorn - 20 2012…

  • Becher Chase - Aintree , Saturday 5/12/15, 15 Year Stats

    The Executioner on 30 Nov at 17:59

    Open to six year olds and upwards the Becher Chase was introduced back in 1992 with the first running going to the classy but underachiever Kildimo for Sue Smith and Lorcan Wyer. It is a handicap chase over a trip of 3 miles 2 furlongs and gives connections the opportunity of giving their horses experience over the Grand National fences in advance of a possible assault on the world's greatest steeplechase in the spring. Earth Summit remains the only horse to with both the Becher Chase and the Grand National in the same calandar year, however the 2001 Becher winner Amberleigh House and the 2004 winner Silver Birch both went on to write their names in National folklore three years later. There have been just three Irish trained winners in twenty three runnings, while the most successful trainer in the…

  • Finding Edges in a curvy race

    ToofanExpress on 30 Nov at 23:11

    When I was introduced to sports betting, I was asked to lay a high priced non-favourite in a football match. The person who introduced me sweared that it has never failed him. If I look back now, it is amazing to see the journey I have taken. Markets, People opinion and Favourites We often see favourites in racing. We do see non-favourites winning. There used to be days when the result pages are crowded with Fs and 2Fs. There were days when I see the score screen in my local bookmaker was void of Fs and 2Fs. Often I left these shops wondering what makes the favourites/non-favourites tick. Those were the days when I used to mindlessly bet just by reading the descriptions on the betfair timeform page or a racing post description that comes on the tv screens. Its not rocket…

  • Premier League Relegation. End October update.

    davidg3907 on 29 Nov at 21:12

    With the international break it seemed a good time to revisit the predictions for the end of October, albeit one round of matches later than intended. Although I had finished the blog, circumstances led me to forget to post it at the time. I shall update further with end of November comments during the next few days. Despite Chelsea’s continued eagerness to get involved, I shall concentrate on the eight most likely candidates, along with updates on those theoretically involved at the beginning. WATFORD My initial thoughts were that they had marginally the most difficult start of the promoted teams. Backed to a small stake averaging 1.78, this is a position I will hold for the first month or so. End of August update They started the season with 3 draws to get the 3 points I thought they may get from…

  • In Form Trainers - 30 November to 6 December 2015

    Robmull on 29 Nov at 12:50

    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 2011 and will also highlight any jockeys that have been profitable to follow when teaming up with our in form trainers, during 2015. 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…

  • Draw/Win vs Win/Win in the Half-Time/Full-Time Market

    bobslay13 on 27 Nov at 13:26

    Draw/Win vs Win/Win in the Half-Time/Full-Time Market Half-Time/Full-Time results (a.k.a Double Result) is a market I’ve dabbled with to some extent but not with a great degree of success. I assume that’s the case for most regular punters so I thought I’d do a little investigation to see if I can find out where I’ve been going wrong. I’ve been wondering recently about the seemingly great difference between the odds on teams to be winning at both Half-Time and Full-Time compared to teams to be drawing at Half-Time and Win at Full-Time. The odds obviously vary greatly but most teams priced around 1.5 to win a game will be Even money to get the Win/Win result. However, those odds are greatly increased if you opt for the Draw/Win result; usually around the 3.0 mark. For teams around 2.0 to win in the…

  • Anytime Scorer Pointers 5 Dec

    LustForLeith on 29 Nov at 14:53

    Wile E Coyote And The Anytime Scorer Bet Week 3 Week 2 wasn't too bad. Due to the Scottish Cup I didn't include lower league Scottish teams, limiting the selections to five. Of those five highlighted scorers, four of them scored at anytime in the game with three of them (Vardy, Armstrong and Simpson) scoring first. I can't stress enough that I'm going to concentrate on any time scorers but it's an interesting point that those selected are also on occasion netting first. I'm going to keep a note of how it's going so far. Week One 8 Selections 5 Scored at Anytime 2 Scored first Week Two 5 Selections 4 Scored Anytime 3 Scored first This week there's no League 1 or League 2 in England so I've highlighted the following selections. Also, due to Scottish cup replays, it cuts down the selections north of…
