The Southampton Perspective: Saints to Shoot Down Swans?
by danbradley on 18 Sep at 09:58
The Southampton Perspective: Saints to Shoot Down Swans? Last week was a very successful one for both me and my team as the Saints marched on to a 4-0 demolition of a poor Newcastle side, with all but one of my pre-match selections coming in giving an LSP of +11.35 - that's the profit you would have made from each pound you put on my tips. A lot of attention has been given to the misgivings of the visitors and the positives from the Southampton performance have almost been overlooked as a result, but, considering the huge turmoil the club went through and the number of new bodies in the team, it must be said that this was a fantastic early result for the Saints and proof that the club have recruited well and got the new players linking up almost..
10 NH horses to follow for 2014/2015
by Micko70 on 14 Sep at 20:09
The Winter National Hunt season is nearly upon us and it's my favourite type of racing, i love the sight of top quality horses jumping hurdles & fences. Many punters like to follow certain trainers or jockeys, but i normally follow a list of horses that i have either been given or have built up myself. This list comprises of 10 horses i will be following for the National Hunt Season, hopefully this list can give me plenty of winners throughout the season and with a bit of luck, we can see one or more winning at the end of season festivals, such as Cheltenham or Aintree. Baltimore Rock - David Pipe Baltimore Rock has yet to finish outside the first 4 in any of his 9 NH races to date, he won on his nh debut when winning a 17f bumper at Bangor..
2014 Betfred Cambridgeshire Handicap Stats And Pointers , Saturday 27/9/14
by The Executioner on 18 Sep at 23:03
The Cambridgeshire was first run in 1839, the same year as The Cesarewitch was established and the races soon became known as the Autumn Double. It takes place on the Rowley Mile course over a straight nine furlongs trip, and it takes some getting, often a horse that has won over slightly further can run well rather than the more speedier types. During the race’s history there has six two time winners, Hackler’s Pride ( 1903/1904 ) , Christmas Daisy ( 1909/1910 ) , Sterope ( 1948/1949 ) , Prince De Galles ( 1969/1970 ) , Baronet ( 1978/1980 ) and most recently Rambo’s Hall ( 1989/1992 ). As with some of the other major handicaps of the season there has been an increase in prizemoney which has also seen an increase in the quality of entries, and often..
Ayr Gold Cup Trends (2 x 33/1 selections)
by Micko70 on 15 Sep at 21:55
The William Hill Ayr Gold Cup is one of the biggest sprint handicaps run over the season, the race is a class 2 race run over 6 furlongs in September. Amazingly, when this race was first run in the early 1800's, it was run over 2 miles, it was then dropped down to a mile in 1870 before dropping to it's current distance of 6 furlongs in 1908. We normally see a huge field in this race, within the maximum amount of runners currently set at 27, we also have the Silver & Bronze Cup's for horses not good enough to run in the Gold Cup or the Silver Cup (Bronze Cup runners) The trends i am looking at this year are Age, Weight, Official Rating, Last Time Out, Last Run & Season Runs Just prior to the 5 day declarations, there were..

What is going wrong at Newcastle United
by Micko70 on 14 Sep at 20:56
Over the last few season's they have seemed to struggle since they finished 5th in the 2011/2012 season, as i write this they have yet to win this season and are currently sitting bottom of the Premiership. In the 2011/2012 season Newcastle finished 5th on 65 points, they won 19, drew 8 and lost 11 of their 38 games. They won 11, drew 5 and lost only 3 at home that season, on the road they won 8, drew 3 and lost 8 They scored 29 at home and 27 on the road (56) and conceded 17 at home and 34 on the road (51) Looking at each season since they finished 5th we can see the following - 2012/2013 Newcastle finished 16th on 41 points, with 11 wins, 8 draws and 19 losses, they scored 45 and conceded 68 goals, at home they won..
Champions League Gameweek 1 - Liverpool vs Ludogorets
by ibfm23 on 14 Sep at 13:39
With only three days to prepare for the Champions League clash against Ludogorets, Liverpool have no time to cry on spilled milk. The match against Aston Villa evidenced some tactical weaknesses and Rodgers must work very hard to improve and most importantly create alternative offensive approaches. As expected, the Liverpool boss went for rotation, yet in all fairness I was shocked to learn of Sterling’s absence. I believe that Coutinho’s and/or Markovic’s style would have been more suited to the upcoming match against the Bulgarians, more so with Sturridge out injured. With the Villans fielding a number of heavyweights, I was expecting to see Lambert from the first minute alongside Balotelli. As it happened, the Italian was embroiled in a pointless physical battle with the powerful Villa back four whilst the trio of midfield anchors easily controlled Liverpool’s second line..
