  • Qatar Stewards' Cup at Goodwood Key Race Trends - 30 July 2016

    Robmull on 28 Jul at 14:04

    The Qatar Stewards’ Cup is a Class 2 Heritage Handicap for runners aged 3 years and older, which is run over 6 furlongs at Goodwood on Saturday, 30 July 2016 and is traditionally the big betting race of the fifth and final day of the Glorious Goodwood Festival. With an average field size of just under 27 runners during the past decade, the Stewards’ Cup often provides an fiendishly difficult puzzle for punters to assess. During the past decade 3 market leaders (including 1 joint favourite) have obliged for a LSP of 7.75 points, whilst a further 2 of the remaining 7 winners were sent off at single figure odds, with the exceptions starting at odds of 10/1, 12/1, 14/1, 20/1 and 40/1, which suggests that winners can come from just about anywhere in the betting market, although I would…

    With the Olympics less than two weeks away, the upcoming Masters Event in Canada certainly doesn’t have the overall feel of an event just one level below the Grand Slams with the absence of Andy Murray, Roger Federer and Rafael Nadal.

In 2016, the women are in Montreal whilst the men play in Toronto. 2016 Masters Series so far Indian Wells: Novak Djokovic def. Milos Raonic 6-2, 6-0 Miami: Novak Djokovic def.

  • 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…

  • Why the New York Jets need to re-sign Ryan Fitzpatrick

    undertherobe on 26 Jul at 20:56

    Such is the way of the NFL in 2016 that when a player signs a lucrative contract (whether justified or not), fellow players in the same position start questioning why they're not being paid the same. But when the Redskins handed QB Kirk Cousins a $20 million deal back in March, few in the land of Gang Green country could have imagined the impact it woukd have on the New York Jets and leave 2nd year head coach Tom Bowles going into training camp without his starting QB signed up for the 2016 season. Contract holdouts aren't uncommon in the NFL and they have an uncanny habit of usually sorting themselves out without any major damage being done. However, the Ryan Fitzpatrick saga has been dragging on for far too long and reports suggest that the Jets have given him until the…

  • Premiership Relegation Markets - Analysis and Preview

    botev1921 on 28 Jul at 00:07

    We are getting closer to the start of the season and as always, people try to get ahead of the game and figure some long-term selections, which can make the whole year ahead that little bit more exciting. For me, examining the various Premiership markets while some players are still on their holidays is interesting enough and while I prefer the weekly betting, there are certain selections that one must not miss. Imagine how exciting last season must have been for those who backed Leicester or who were waiting on Harry Kane to top the goalscorers list. This time around, I doubt there will be another Leicester fairytale but examining those markets is still interesting enough in late July while teams are still revamping their line-ups and doing the usual summer tours around the world. RELEGATION FAVOURITES Last season I was firm…

  • Betfred Ebor at York Key Race Trends - 20 August 2016

    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…
