Horse Racing Specialisation - Whats Your Niche?
by nors on 18 Apr at 15:55
No one punter knows everything and no one punter can successfully study every race. The bookmakers choose to have races going off very close to each other, originally to keep the betting shop punters entertained and in the shops. But this is to the detriment of the punter. Whilst the punter bemoaned his losing bet he had an instant opportunity to try again, because like buses there would be another race along imminently. So the punter was inundated with races to bet on, a quick scan of the next race and he was on again. The punter had so many races to bet on, and in many cases so many races to lose on. If you think about other tasks you spend your money on i suspect you consider the offer, weigh up the costs, make a decision, think again about..

Kruger the Right Model for Volvo China Open The European Tour stays in the Far East this week (24th-27 April) for the Volvo China Open. This year it heads to a new course and the Genzon GC in Shenzen. Again it’s a dual ranking event, but this time it joins forces with the OneAsia Tour. This will be the 20th edition of the event and the 11th year as a European Tour event, with Brett Rumford the defending champion having won at Binhai Lake GC. The Course Genzon GC is in the Guangdong province of Southern China, and near Shenzhen, which may sound more familiar as the home of the Mission Hills Golf Resort the past host of the World Cup.

MLB Review - We 19.04.14
by undertherobe on 20 Apr at 08:48
We’re through 3 weeks now and with around 10% of the season gone, the Divisions are starting to take shape with some teams already being left behind in the playoff race. We’ll look at that later in the blog but first, a quick recap on some of the picks recommended last week Picks Review First up was backing Dan Haren. In his start last Sunday against Arizona and Trevor Cahill he pitched just under 6 solid innings as the Dodgers roughed up Cahill and the D’Backs. He wasn’t as fluid as in his first two starts but worked himself out of trouble on multiple occasions. He faced the D’Backs again last night and again, was solid without being spectacular to grab another win and move to 3-0. Next up I recommended opposing Tim Lincecum. In his first start of the week, both he..

PERTH RACING FESTIVAL Perth holds a three day meeting in two weeks time, starting on the 23rd April and finishing on the Friday 25th April. Over these three day’s we will see some competitive races, with big names in trainers and jockeys appearing. Perth racecourse is a colourful place with plenty of everything going on.

As I mentioned, the big boys like to try their luck here, like Nicky Henderson, David Pipe, Nigel Twiston-Davies along with Paul Nicholls, just to name a few, several Irish trainers come over and raid the prize money, with the..
