Re: World Cup Third Place Play-off - Good Idea or Waste Of Time

It should become a charity game, much like our own 'Community Shield' with the winning country taking 75% of the gate receipts and the loser 25%, to distribute to charities in their own countries. I believe this would make the match more competitive. After a great tournament, how great would it be t...

Re: Horse Racing Discussion Thread: Monday 9th July - Sunday 15th July

7.55 Chester The outsider of the field Sayesse (50/1) is 1-3 here from 2 runs and has top Chester jockey Franny Norton riding. Has a tough draw in 12 but over 7f it's a less severe disadvantage. 12lb lower than his head 3rd of 10 here over 6f in May 2017. That was in a class higher than this and a r...

Re: Horse Racing Discussion Thread: Monday 2nd July - Sunday 8th July

8.50 Beverley Bop It 28/1 The RP says: No turf wins since 2015; running fairly of late but needs to find more from somewhere So going with that as a starting point, the 'extra something' can be a slightly better draw in this, than over CD last time out (2 as opposed to 4). He's down a pound for that...

Re: Horse Racing Discussion Thread: Monday 2nd July - Sunday 8th July

8.30 Tipperary Something Sweet 20/1 What I like best about this horse is that he regularly finishes thereabouts in large fields like this and his mark still remains competitive. 6/17, 4/16, 2/18, 4/17, are his last 4 runs, so he looks on paper to be pretty tough and capable of being involved here if...

Re: Horse Racing Discussion Thread: Monday 2nd July - Sunday 8th July

8.25 Newbury Scoones 7/1 Fanshawe has a good record here (15%) and doing ok at present. This horse is up 2lb for a decent 2nd at Lingfield last time but this distance looks to be ideal and this track is less quirky than Lingfield. The extra furlong at Yarmouth before that probably wasn't in his favo...

Re: Horse Racing Discussion Thread: Monday 2nd July - Sunday 8th July

8.55 Newbury Autumn Leaves 16/1 Probably more likely to last home on this flatter track than at uphill Sandown three weeks ago. Should be fitter for that too. Looks to be on a good mark (75) based on her nose 2nd to Electric Landlady at his course (6f) in July last year, with that horse rated in the...

Re: Horse Racing Discussion Thread: Monday 2nd July - Sunday 8th July

It's all pretty easy really 1. Give a little bit of reasoning behind your tips (takes about 2 minutes) 2. Check the English to make it easy for people to read. It doesn't have to be the quality of Keats, Shelley or Dickens, just ok for people to read. There's no grammar police on here but if you wan...

Re: SYSTEMS?

Fill yer boots here: https://www.olbg.com/forum/viewforum.php?f=31 I’ve got some reading to do :shock: I'd look at the ones that have been going for a while. The vast majority will be ones that people try out for a while and they either crash and burn or the person just loses interest in it.

Re: Horse Racing Discussion Thread: Monday 2nd July - Sunday 8th July

5.15 Hamilton - Griffin Street , no form at all to shout about but runs from a basement mark of just 45 - big odds to sneak a place in what looks a desperate contest .... 40/1 with some firms EW to minimum stakes. There's something that appeals to me about a desperate contest :) So I had to take a ...

Re: OLBG Members Twitter Handles - add yours here!

I wouldn't even know what to use it for or why I should be using it. I thought this was just a celebrity thing i.e if Brad Pitt goes to the loo someone tweets to his followers 'Brad Pitt's gone for a sh...'

Because they obviously need to know. :D
