Gameweek 28 - Liverpool vs Burnley
by ibfm23 on 02 Mar at 06:18
A potential 8 point lead with 11 matches to go means that it’s Chelsea’s to lose, however the Premier League still has plenty of excitement to offer with the 3rd and 4th spot race and the relegation battle still wide open. Liverpool and Burnley are in the midst of these and the midweek match-up before the FA Cup break is crucial for both sides. The impressive display against Manchester City will have softened the Europa League exit blow and keeps the Reds fully in contention for a place in next year’s Champions League. With Sturridge (bravely rotated out against the Sky Blues) slowly regaining fitness and with Sakho and Gerrard back in full training, Rodgers should have a close to full squad ahead of the final sprint. There isn’t much to say about Burnley. Dyche’s men haven’t won a match since mid-January..
Cheltenham 2015 - A win and each way lucky 31 for 5 major races

Cheltenham 2015 - A win and each way lucky 31 for 5 major races As I sit writing this, I excitedly tell myself "just 9 days to go now until it all starts again, brilliant, can't wait" - no I'm not talking about Christmas day, or my birthday, I'm talking about the start of the Cheltenham Festival and all of you reading this who are jump racing fans will share those thoughts, I just know you will. Now I've been a fan of horse racing as a whole sport since I was a kid, trips with my family to Doncaster for the St Leger aged 10, maybe slightly younger, so I've been a fan of horse racing for a very long time indeed, getting on for 30 years now. Flat turf racing was what I was brought upon, that's what my dad..
Trainers to follow in March
by Scratville on 01 Mar at 02:34
We move into March on the back of two successful months and an overall LSP of +£98.11. With Cheltenham just around the corner we highlight 6 NH trainers and 9 AW trainers. March has been good to us in the last two years, hopefully it will be again this year and we can make it 5 profitable months on the trot. NH PHILIP HOBBS (CHASERS) Sitting second in the trainers championship so far it has been a fantastic season for the Hobbs team. He goes into Cheltenham with a nice bunch of Chasers and has a great record with his Chasers in March. 2011 5/27 19% +£ 4.75 2012 8/23 35% +£23 25 2013 1/17..
Old flames die hard: the Red Wings are enjoying their games against the Western Conference
by Epic on 01 Mar at 15:10
Before the start of last season we saw a realignment in the NHL, which, among other moves, saw the Detroit Red Wings moved from the Western Conference to the East. Judging by the fact that the Wings made it through to the playoffs as the last team in the East and with just a three point edge over the Washington Capitals, we can say the team had trouble adjusting with the change. It's often said the Western Conference teams play a much more physical style of hockey. To their credit, they did have a decent record against their new Conference foes going 26-18-10. The record against the West was 13-10-5. This season though, the Red Wings have proved that old flames die hard and they are enjoying matchups against the Western Conference. Yesterday the team finished off a road trip consisting..
Nicky Henderson novice hurdlers to fly Seven Barrows' Cheltenham Flag, but "A Team" Chase more glory!
by Randy Rann on 24 Feb at 20:46
Nicky Henderson media day, gets the Cheltenham Festival juices flowing! A lucky invite as Dean's (Drobgod) wingman was gratefully accepted as the Cheltenham bound charabanc parked itself on the Seven Barrows lawn, as trainer Nicky Henderson opened his doors once again to the media scrum. After ditching the Sat-Nav and following our noses we made it just in time for the parade of stable stars. L'AMI SERGE was first out of the boxes and quite apt too, as the Grade 1 winning novice hurdler gets the ball rolling in the curtain raising Supreme Novice in exactly a fortnight's time. He looked well, but they all did and Henderson was confident he'd run well. He didn't say he was scared of Willie Mullins's hotpot Douvan, but did say he can't worry about what armoury his rival has got and just dream about what's in store for..

I have done trends for every race at the festival in different blogs, with the exception of this race as it has been dominated by Quevega (pictured) and using normal conventional trends probably won't help us pick out the winner The race has been run 7 times and Quevega won 6 of those, so i have had to look at all of the placed horses to see if anything stands out from the 21 horses placed I have looked at Age, Official Rating, Last Time Out, Last Run, Season Runs, Season Win, Grade Form & Distance The first 3 in each of the last 7 runnings were as follows - YEAR 1ST 2ND 3RD 2014 Quevega Glens Melody L'Unique 2013 Quevega Sirene D'Ainay Swincombe Flame 2012 Quevega Kentford Grey Lady Golden Sunbird 2011 Quevega Sparky May Ocean Transit 2010 Quevega Caroles legacy Voler La Vadette 2009 Quevega United Aura About You 2008 Whiteoak Refinement Chomba Womba All of the stats below are based on 21 runners but in some cases (Quevega) some cannot be counted,..
All Draws Multiple Strategy - The Challenge Returns - Week 4
by tbuckley on 24 Feb at 23:35
All Draws Multiple Strategy - The Challenge Returns - Week 4 When I bet on football, I adopt a policy of mixing and matching the types of bets I do from week to week, depending on what I think about the general view of the fixture lists and basically just to keep things interesting by challenging myself in different ways. So one week I might do correct score lucky 15's, I might do first goalscorer multiples, or try a selection of scorecast options, but one of my favourite, fun football betting challenges is doing the All Draw Multiple Challenge. The All Draw Multiple Challenge is simply what it says, I select a group of matches which I think are set to be tough, competitive and could well be Draws and put them all together in multiples ie 4 draws together in a..
