Guerrier Back for Seconds at Foshan For the second week running the Challenge Tour is in China, this time for a second trip to the Foshan GC for the Foshan Open.

Another late Wednesday night start UK time and so gets underway at 11.20pm on the 15th Oct.

Matt Kuchar will be competing on the PGA tour this week when he competes in the McGladrey Classic from the 23rd October until the 26th October 2014. This tournament was first staged in 2010 and it is hosted by Davis Love III and it is part of the FedExCup schedule and the winner will obtain 500 points.

Swansea v LEICESTER CITY. Premiership October 25th.
by davidg3907 on 23 Oct at 22:47
Swansea v LEICESTER. Premiership October 25th. A few poor results have tarnished the great start Leicester had to the season. Can they get the season back on track against Swansea who have a similar profile? SWANSEA v LEICESTER CITY The biggest plus here may be that it is live on TV. Leicester’s recent performance on live TV was of course the fantastic win over Manchester United but going back to last season, three games that stick in my mind were the wins at Watford and Burnley along with a demolition job on Derby at the King Power. LEICESTER’S APPROACH It is time for Leicester to take a more positive approach now, similar to how they started the season. Performances..
Profitable Trainer & Jockey Stats For The National Hunt Season 2014/15
by The Executioner on 22 Oct at 16:55
As the jumps season starts to get in to full swing many of us will be looking for areas in which we can try to obtain an advantage in our ongoing battle with the bookmakers. Whilst past performances can never offer a guarantee for the future, it can however at times be beneficial to understand and identify certain trainers and jockeys plans. We all know that trainers will try to peak their leading horses for the big festivals such as Cheltenham , Aintree and Punchestown in the latter part of the season, but along the way there will be many more meetings to be taken in, not just the ones offering big prizes at the weekend but also the day to day ‘ bread and butter ‘ meetings. : For this particular feature I have identified four trainers and four jockeys..
Garanti Koza WTA Tournament of Champions Preview
by botev1921 on 23 Oct at 19:06
The Garanti Koza Tournament of Champions is the very last official event of the WTA calendar and this year for the last time it will take place in Sofia, Bulgaria. While this event is considered something of a consolation for those girls who had a good enough year with a title to their name but were just short of the quality required to make it to the top 10, it is still a good event with a lot of interesting matches if we take the last couple of editions. Being the last possible moment for finding good value bets on women’s tennis, it is also worth looking at it from a punter’s perspective as tennis fans will have to wait more than a month to get things back running. Since my tennis blogs have always received good feedback, I decided..
