  • #IPL 2016 - what have we learned so far?

    nellberg1 on 26 Apr at 13:05

    We've now had 21 of the 60 scheduled games of IPL 2016, so as we're a 3rd of the way through the season now is a good time to reflect on what we've seen. What teams are under-performing? what players are key? what have the trends been and will they continue? how can we profit from here on in? Delhi Daredevils - played 4 won 3 lost 1 * lost by 9 wickets v KKR * won by 8 wickets v Kings Xi * won by 7 wickets v RCB * won by 10 runs v Mumbai Delhi did well to turn around a horror start against KKR to win their next 3 games. Their best win was chasing down 192 v RCB, with De Kock's century the jewel in the crown. They've still made some strange decisions (no Duminy in their 1st game, no Tahir…

  • PBF EXPANDING ON GREENHAM DAY.

    pompeybuster12 on 24 Apr at 09:01

    PBF, THE GREENHAM MOVING FORWARDS I thought it would be interesting to take a look at the ratings thrown up from GREENHAM DAY at Chelmsford to see if we can take any pointers below are the figures posted for every horse running on Greenham Day we will delve into them and investigate any excuses or indeed any that looked better than the bare figure suggests. The most obvious advantage will be setting a line between good turf horses moving forwards and simply good all weather performers who happened upon the right surface against others who expected to be slugging through heavy ground 100 miles away at Newbury franked by the fact that only 3 runners went to post for the Greenham itself. TWELVE MONTHS AGO, MUHAARAR When Muhaarar threw down a 58 in a soft ground maiden at Doncaster it would have…

  • Athasi Stakes at the Curragh Key Race Trends - 2 May 2016

    Robmull on 27 Apr at 17:00

    The Canford Cliffs EBF Athasi Stakes is a Group 3 race for Fillies and Mares aged 3 years and older, which is run over 7 furlongs at the Curragh on Monday, 2 May 2016. With an average field size of 8 runners during the past decade, the Athasi Stakes often provides an interesting puzzle for punters to assess, with many of the participants making their seasonal debut. During the past decade, 4 market leaders have obliged for a LSP of 2.50 points, whilst a further winner was sent off at 9/4, although there have been some surprise results with the remaining 5 winners starting at 9/1 x 2, 10/1, 25/1 and 33/1. Readers of my previous Key Race Trends blogs will be aware that I often concentrate on early closing races where the key trends for the race have been…
