Bank holiday Monday preview of the eight meetings.
by meoldmate on 30 Aug at 15:58
Looks like the weather has changed to the worst, with plenty of rain about, which can upset the form, left right and centre. Form figures can not be relied upon, as many figures ring true on good ground, with softer conditions on view, the painstaking task of trying to find horses with decent figures to go with, plus a look at breeding with the progeny having the blood lines to figure with this ground alot better than a faster surface. Here are just a few breeding lines to look out for, if the ground is soft to heavy and members are not sure where to look. Turtle Island Danehill Authorised Sir Percy Generous Bahamian Bounty Pivotal >Selkirk Medicean There are many more lines that can be figured with, concerning soft ground blood lines. Of course, it is a Bank Holiday in England, why so many meetings, hope everyone has an enjoyable day and..

by The rabbit on 30 Aug at 15:10
Serena Williams will be attempting to win her first Calendar Year Grand Slam and her 22nd Grand Slam title when she competes in the US Open which begins on the 31st August 2015. Serena Williams is making her 16th appearance at this Grand Slam which she has won on six occasions including last year and in 2012 and in 2013. She has won all four of the Grand Slam titles in her career and has won all of the other Grand Slams this year including the Australian Open. She is presently ranked as the number one player in the world and is the number one seed this week. The US Open is the final one of the four annual Grand Slams to take place and it is held at Flushing Meadows in New York City and the surface is hard court. The..

by botev1921 on 28 Aug at 14:09
The last Grand Slam of the season is near and our record-breaking prediction blog is back again. We had mixed success at Wimbledon but still managed to hit a winner and added valuable insights into some of the potential surprise packages. Hopefully this time around we can continue improving and will not disappoint all those loyal readers who have been leaving their feedback on how to further improve this edition and make it even more interesting. As a result of your suggestions we introduce a small change to the format. While before out panel had to come up with potential ATP and WTA surprise and disappointments, we have made this part a bit more punter-friendly by transforming it into ‘Seeded players to lay in the early rounds’ and ‘Unseeded player to overachieve’. The panel consists of several people with now proven..
US Open ATP Draw Analysis
by botev1921 on 27 Aug at 21:00
The last Grand Slam of the season is upon us and the tradition of me offering a complete quarter by quarter preview in the form of a blog must continue. Last season US Open proved to be one of the most unpredictable when it comes to ATP tennis and while again there are obvious favourites who would fancy their chances, some of the lower seeds surely impressed during the hard court season and all year in general. As the season nears to a close, some of the less physical favourites often have problems and point out fatigue as one of the reasons why they are on a decline after the summer. At the same time, those who have been a bit less prominent at the big stage get a better shot at something big if they managed to keep enough..
In Form Trainers - 31 August to 6 September
by Robmull on 30 Aug at 16:36
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 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 to keep a close eye on a trainer’s runners when the stable..

2015/16 Fifty National Hunt Horses To Follow ( Part One ) Numbers 1 to 25
by The Executioner on 28 Aug at 15:29
We've not got long to wait before the National Hunt Season really kicks in to action. We're just around six weeks away from when the leading stables will be starting to get their string prepared for some of the better early season contests. Over the last two months or so I have spent many hours delving through the form and watching many replays of some of last season's races , in the hope of creating a list of horses to follow over the course of the winter months. Some names will be familiar to some of you and other won't be. I've tried to include a good mixture of potential novice hurdlers , potential novice chasers , handicap prospects over both hurdles and fences , and also a few horses yet to race under National Hunt rules but have the..
