Perth three day meeting in two weeks.
by meoldmate on 18 Apr at 18:37
PERTH RACING FESTIVAL Perth holds a three day meeting in two weeks time, starting on the 23rd April and finishing on the Friday 25th April. Over these three day’s we will see some competitive races, with big names in trainers and jockeys appearing. Perth racecourse is a colourful place with plenty of everything going on. Perth is not a big course,which makes things easy to walk around and visible from any position to see the racing from, their is a big screen, so you are not missing anything. There's plenty of time to move from parade ring to the betting area without any hassle. As I mentioned, the big boys like to try their luck here, like Nicky Henderson, David Pipe, Nigel Twiston-Davies along with Paul Nicholls, just to name a few, several Irish trainers come over and raid the prize money, with the..
MLB Review - We 19.04.14
by undertherobe on 20 Apr at 08:48
We’re through 3 weeks now and with around 10% of the season gone, the Divisions are starting to take shape with some teams already being left behind in the playoff race. We’ll look at that later in the blog but first, a quick recap on some of the picks recommended last week Picks Review First up was backing Dan Haren. In his start last Sunday against Arizona and Trevor Cahill he pitched just under 6 solid innings as the Dodgers roughed up Cahill and the D’Backs. He wasn’t as fluid as in his first two starts but worked himself out of trouble on multiple occasions. He faced the D’Backs again last night and again, was solid without being spectacular to grab another win and move to 3-0. Next up I recommended opposing Tim Lincecum. In his first start of the week, both he..
Tuesday and Wednesday's Match Ups At The Crucible
by TeddyT on 22 Apr at 00:37
First Round Matches Tues and Wed 22nd 23rd April Michael Wasley gave the selections so far a great win last night at 11 on the exchanges together with other wins at 4/6, 8/13, EVS and 6/5 from seven selections so far. Marco Fu 4/7 v Martin Gould 8/5 Match starts 10.00am Tuesday 22nd Martin Gould has played seven matches at The Crucible, losing five matches and winning just two. Both of those wins however were against Marco Fu; 10-9 in 2010 and 10-8 in 2011. Fu has had twenty matches in Sheffield stretching back to 1999 and has won only seven of those games. Even more worrying is that Fu has lost eight of his last ten matches at The Crucible. Given the above stats, it’s hard to feel confident about either player but if pushed I would just favour Fu but his price..

by The rabbit on 21 Apr at 09:08
Justin Rose is competing in the next event on the PGA tour which is the Zurich Classic of New Orleans which takes place at the TPC Louisiana golf course which has hosted this event since 2007. It was also the venue in 2005 but was then badly damaged by hurricane Katrina which meant that the course had to be altered and shortened to it's present length. It is part of the FedExCup schedule and the winner will obtain 500 points. The past seven winners of this event with their final scores are - 2013 Billy Horschel - 20 2012 Jason Dufner -19 2011 Bubba Watson -15 2010 Jason Bohn - 18 2009 Jerry Kelly - 14 2008 Andres Romero - 13 2007 Nick Watney - 15 The Course The TPC Louisiana golf course was designed by Peter Dye and is a par 72 of about 7400 yards. It has four..
Horse Racing Specialisation - Whats Your Niche?
by nors on 18 Apr at 15:55
No one punter knows everything and no one punter can successfully study every race. The bookmakers choose to have races going off very close to each other, originally to keep the betting shop punters entertained and in the shops. But this is to the detriment of the punter. Whilst the punter bemoaned his losing bet he had an instant opportunity to try again, because like buses there would be another race along imminently. So the punter was inundated with races to bet on, a quick scan of the next race and he was on again. The punter had so many races to bet on, and in many cases so many races to lose on. If you think about other tasks you spend your money on i suspect you consider the offer, weigh up the costs, make a decision, think again about..
Champions League - Atletico Madrid vs Chelsea Preview
by SmoggyFever on 22 Apr at 09:17
Some may say that Atletico have over-performed this season, when considering that they are 3 points clear in La Liga and have put out Milan and Barcelona en route to the Champions League semi-finals. That's not to say Chelsea haven't performed, they weathered a storm in Galatasaray's stadium before roundly beating them at home, before over-coming a huge blow by losing 3-1 in Paris only to scrape past Le Parisiens at Stamford Bridge. Domestically, Chelsea are finished. They sit 5 points behind Liverpool with 3 games to go, having lost 3 games in the past 5 weeks to teams no higher than 15th in the league. Further more, Mourinho's tactics and team selection has offered very little confidence to the fans, in games where Matic played his worst game against Crystal Palace, and Ramires was sent off at Villa, before..
World Snooker Championship - Analysis of bottom half of the draw
by TeddyT on 18 Apr at 13:41
World Snooker Championship 2014 Bottom Half Of The Draw Analysis Mark Selby Current Season Record: 21 events (won 1) 107 matches (w 77, L30) Frames played: 717 Five Year World Championship Results: 2R, 1R, QF, SF, QF For a player of Mark Selby’s undoubted ability I would imagine this has been a disappointing season as from twenty-one events played he has managed just one minor event win. For a player challenging to be number one in the world that level of success does not read well. Selby has appeared in five other finals this season and whilst that is testament to his high standard of play it is perhaps a worry that he has failed so often at the final hurdle. Possibly the 10-4 drubbing Selby received at the hands of Ronnie O’Sullivan in the final of The Masters has left an effect on Selby..
