What I Have Learned From Cheltenham
by garethp1981 on 22 Mar at 20:46
The end of the festival is now over a week ago and I thought it would be good to record on this blog what I think can be learned from the greatest show on turf. I was lucky enough to be able to go to the first day, so my view are perhaps coloured a bit by this, but I did think there were things to be learned from each of the four days. Douvan Is One To Look Out For Much of the talk before day one was about a Willie Mullins and Ruby Walsh winning the four Grade One Races on the Tuesday. To do this Ruby needed to start the festival by winning on Douvan and it was to the delight of a very noisy Cheltenham crowd that he did so. I personally thought that Douvan was the..

by meoldmate on 21 Mar at 00:09
CHAMPIONSHIP TITLE Who is going to win this league? There are so many teams, within a chance of taking the title. With nine games left, plenty of action to come and points to be won and lost, with either improving a position all losing it and possibly automatic promotion. As I am typing this, the top of the Championship looks like this Team Matches Played Won Draw lost goals Goals Against Points Watford 38 22 9 8 78 45 72 Middlesbrough 38 21. 9 8 59 27 72 Bournemouth 38 20 10 8 79 40 70 Norwich 38 19 10 9 73 42 67 Derby 38 19 10 9 69 41 67 Brentford 38 20 5 13 62 50 65 The top seven teams who have over sixty points, with the top three all in the seventies.. If we adapt a league table for home games been played by the top seven, we find a different view of things. Team Matches Played Won Draw lost goals Goals Against Points Middlesbrough 19 12 4 3 37 11 40 Ipswich 19 12 4 3 31 13 40 Watford 19 12 3 4 44 20 39 Derby 19 11. 5 3 41 18 38 Brentford 19 11 3 5 37 22 36 Bournemouth 19 10 6 3 36 21 36 Wolverhampton 19 10 5 4 41 20 35 Norwich 19 9 6 4 41 20 33 Ipswich however, they have a slight chance of winning the Championship, depending on how the clubs above them perform in their remaining games, they do stand a great chance of making a play off position. Away form can cause..
