I have done trends for every race at the festival in different blogs, with the exception of this race as it has been dominated by Quevega (pictured) and using normal conventional trends probably won't help us pick out the winner The race has been run 7 times and Quevega won 6 of those, so i have had to look at all of the placed horses to see if anything stands out from the 21 horses placed I have looked at Age, Official Rating, Last Time Out, Last Run, Season Runs, Season Win, Grade Form & Distance The first 3 in each of the last 7 runnings were as follows - YEAR 1ST 2ND 3RD 2014 Quevega Glens Melody L'Unique 2013 Quevega Sirene D'Ainay Swincombe Flame 2012 Quevega Kentford Grey Lady Golden Sunbird 2011 Quevega Sparky May Ocean Transit 2010 Quevega Caroles legacy Voler La Vadette 2009 Quevega United Aura About You 2008 Whiteoak Refinement Chomba Womba All of the stats below are based on 21 runners but in some cases (Quevega) some cannot be counted,..
Winners and Losers at the NHL Trade Deadline
by undertherobe on 05 Mar at 19:23
Monday March 2nd saw the NHL trade deadline and as usual, it was met with a flurry of activity as teams sought to strengthen their Stanley Cup chances or start preparing for next season. With every trade, there is a winner and a loser so with that in mind, which teams could be considered winners at the deadline and which teams left a lot to be desired with their moves? Winners New York Rangers After a run to the Stanley Cup Finals last season, the Rangers look on course to make another trip to the postseason and expectations are high in the Big Apple. They showed that they mean business by trading away a top prospect (Anthony Duclair) and a first round & second round draft pick to acquire Arizona defenseman Keith Yandle. Yandle is a point scorer and can help the Rangers..
SUPER LEAGUE 2015 - ROUND FOUR
by wildbillsghost on 05 Mar at 16:40
Thursday, already? You sure? Where does the time time go?? That means Round Four of Super League 2015 is about to get underway - here goes... Thursday 5th March 2015 - 8.00pm KO HULL FC Vs LEEDS RHINOS The Airlie Birds saw their, fairly bright, start to the new campaign grounded as they lost at, the previously hapless, Salford Red Devils last Saturday night. After a convincing shutout of the Giants to open the season, and then a fiercely fought 7-6 narrow defeat to Warrington Wolves, hopes were high the good start would continue when they visited a Salford club with plenty of problems both on and off the pitch. The opening two games had been marked by a very tight Hull defence that had conceded just one try in the first two games in total,..

Both Teams To Score IV; Bobslay13

Both Teams To Score Part II which is Redhammer's blog can be found HERE Intro We focused on Germany and Italy last week and got burnt! We felt there were goals flying in within those leagues the last 2 weeks so we jumped on the bandwagon last week and fell off straight away. In Scotland, there was something in the water as we got the clean sweep but South of the Border could have done with that something in their water as out of 41 games on Saturday, just 10 saw both sides scoring, and it didn't get much better on Sunday either. This Week We were frustrated at the weekend as upsets occurred such as Fulham keeping a clean sheet against Derby and Benitez' Napoli drawing a blank. This week we have abolished the countries to concentrate on..

by drobgod on 02 Mar at 14:40
As the PR representative for OLBG.com I've been privileged to speak on quite a regular basis to the likes of Willie Mullins, Nicky Henderson and Alan King, to name just a few as they are regular supporters of our mares series. As well as that OLBG has over 50,000 members and many of them among the most knowledgeable punters around, so below with their help I hope I can give you some pointers to the real race of the Festival! Most of the build up to the 2015 OLBG.com Mares Hurdle has been surrounded by constant talk of whether the great mare Annie Power will, or even should, participate in what is the showcase event for ladies at Cheltenham. I strongly believe she'll take up her engagement in the mares contest, after all it is a Grade One event..
