MIDWEEK MAKE-UP MATCHES
by wildbillsghost on 30 Jun at 18:16
There are two games to start the week, they are make-up games from earlier in the season when the four clubs here were involved in Challenge Cup games a round before the rest of the Super League teams. Both games will be shown, LIVE, on the SkySports website, but not on TV. Tuesday June 30th 2015 HULL KINGSTON ROVERS vs. SALFORD RED DEVILS 8pm KO Rovers will be a big high after cementing their place in the Challenge Cup semi-finals. It was a good performance from the Robins, but one they nearly through away. Whether it was complacency, or just a great fight-back from the Dragons, things got a lot closer for Rovers than looked possible at the break. Having raced into a 24-0 lead after just half..
Over 40 Future Flat Racing Winners (Hopefully!)
by monkeytennis on 26 Jun at 14:28
I did one of these lists on here a couple of years ago and it threw up plenty of winners and we are at that stage in the flat season again where I feel I have a good list of well handicapped horses to go to war with. As usual the list is comprised mainly of 3yos that have run in very strong early season 3yo handicaps. Some probably won't be seen again and others will completely lose their form but hopefully most will reproduce their early season efforts and win some races. I'd generally expect most to win first time given their preferred conditions and if they don't win within three races I'll normally give up on them. The ones nearer the top are most likely to give their running/be seen out soon: Rotherwick - Had 9 runs as a 2yo..
Wimbledon 2015 - ATP Draw Preview
by botev1921 on 26 Jun at 17:53
Once again I am off to provide the most comprehensive quarter by quarter preview of yet another Grand Slam and while the ATP part of these events has grown to be somewhat dull and predictable, few really saw Stan Wawrinka winning Roland Garros, so there is some value out there if only we can find it early enough. The grass court season, for being as short as it is, actually offers some very specific angles to work with when we analyse draws and match-ups. It is common knowledge that big servers, credible net play and most of all stable return play a much bigger part of the grass court strategy and I believe we must combine those three when we try to pick a potential surprise package to upset the top 10, who once again are expected to dominate at..
Betting Approach - what do you think the most common betting mistakes are ?

Betting Approach - what do you think the most common betting mistakes are ? With Royal Ascot now finished and with the domestic football season not starting until August, right now seems a very good time to take a break from focusing on betting directly and look at different aspects of punting, to see how we do things, what we've learned and what we do wrong. I say 'we' because I'm most definitely a punter and have been for 20 years legally but admittedly a few more that were not legal, don't blame me by the way, the bookies at Doncaster never asked me for me ID and happily took my money, and so did I in return. Yes I'm a punter at heart and I've always been fascinated by how other punters approach their betting, what bets they do, what markets..
Wimbledon 2015 - The British Perspective
by undertherobe on 28 Jun at 00:28
Oh dear. Back at the start of the grass court season, I wrote a blog previewing the six British men inside the top 200 of the ATP Rankings (click here) but it’s all gone downhill from there. Other than Andy Murray, only Aljaz Bedene managed a main draw victory in any of the warm-up events and he didn’t make it further than the 2nd round in Nottingham. To make matters worse, the Wimbledon draw couldn’t have been less kind to the British men and once again, only Andy Murray is favoured with the bookmakers to make it past the first round. So is there any hope for the British men and how far can they get in SW19? Andy Murray (1st rd vs Mikhail Kukushkin) Seeded three, Murray really shouldn’t have too much trouble getting past Kukushkin in the first round. The..
2016 Oscar Preview
by LustForLeith on 28 Jun at 20:45
2016 Oscar Preview I know, I know, it’s too early to look at the Oscars. How can you tell how a film may do in the Academy Awards when you haven’t seen it or it’s competition? Well, there's no harm in trying! Could be quite an interesting year. There’s already some early favourites, so hotly tipped moves that have failed to deliver and the possibility of some surprises. Here’s things to consider - The last three Best Picture winners have been released in October in America That bodes well for the likes of The Walk, Legend, The Martian, Adam Jones, Freeheld, Steve Jobs. And The Last Witch Hunter. The likes of Boyhood and Grand Budapest Hotel could have done better if they had been released later in the year. But don’t rule out films that have been around for ages - Last year Whiplash dazzled..
Trainers to follow in July
by Scratville on 30 Jun at 13:43
An awful June means we go into July with a minus £27.45 LSP for the year. July wasn't kind last year so we have a mostly new set of trainers this July. We are going with 6 flat trainers, 4 NH and one Irish Flat trainer. FLAT TURF DAVID SIMCOCK (3yo+) Suffolk trainer who crops up from time to time, usually with his AW runners. This month we will concentrate on his 3yo's and older as he has a poor record with his 2yo's at this time of year (2/27) and (£21.45 LSP) over the last 4 July's. 2011 4/39 10% +£ 8.42 2012 4/36 11% (£18.95) 2013 9/37 24% ..

Wimbledon 2015 - Prediction Blog
We had one winner in our Roland Garros prediction blog and came close with the Novak Djokovic prediction only to be denied, like I am sure many others, by the on-fire Stan Wawrinka. After breaking our previous visits record, the...

Royal Ascot review, with declarations for winners
Royal Ascot week, was exciting, thrilling and had everything else to go with the meeting, along with the channel four cameras. It is good to see the whole meeting through each day and not a few selected races. Never mind the...
