Re: Horse Racing Discussion & Information for the Week Mon 11/12/17 to Sun 17/12/17

Hi meoldmate , You have certainly raised some interesting topics for discussion. I very rarely place ante post bets, as I dislike getting no run for my money, so will only do so when Non runner no bet is offered at which time I will generally take the concession even if the odds are shorter than tho...

Re: 2017/18 Meydan Racing season - discussion & selections

Well done Tommy.

ACTIVE SPIRIT was a welcome winner, although the result surprised me in 2 ways, namely the winning distance of 7 lengths, as on paper the race looked pretty competitive and his SP of 7/1, as I had expected around 5/1.

All the best.

Rob.

Re: 2017/18 Meydan Racing season - discussion & selections

Hi Tommy, Like you I am not over impressed with the racing at Meydan today, but I also like the look of ACTIVE SPIRIT in the lucky last. His form over this course and distance reads 2-1 and he clearly needed his seasonal debut over a mile when finishing 6th at the opening meeting 4 weeks ago. Odds o...

Re: Aintree - Saturday 9th December

Excellent write up for the Grand Sefton meoldmate The 2 entries that catch my eye at this stage are: CLARCAM: who has a touch of class on his day and is in far better form than when finishing 16th (beaten 42 lengths) in the Topham over course and distance in April, having won a Grade 2 Chase at Nava...

Re: Is the writing on the wall for OLBG....???

There was me saying that I wasn’t going to be as active on the forum and the very next day I am responding to a couple of points raised by DAVIDADAN . Bearing in mind that there were a number of recent occasions when the daily horse racing thread was not initiated, plus others where there were less ...

Re: Is the writing on the wall for OLBG....???

Thanks for your kind comment titans choice, but it is a sign of the times.

I will continue to post update blogs in respect of the VALUE CALCULATOR and perhaps a few one offs on other topics, but I doubt that I will write the trends based articles for the big races in future.

All he best.

Re: Is the writing on the wall for OLBG....???

The overriding incentive for members to get involved appears to be the chance to win money, which I guess is no surprise as the site is geared to betting. It is a shame that fewer members are prepared to share their thoughts for free on the discussion forum and the current position regarding payment...

Re: Horse Racing Discussion for Week Mon 27/11/17 -to Sun 3/12/17

Hi Shrews , Interesting results in respect of age, which I believe offer some useful general pointers. However, I would suggest that there are a number of factors which also need to be taken into account, including: Race Distance I read somewhere (sorry, can’t remember the data source) that the prim...

Re: Horse Racing Discussion for Week Mon 27/11/17 -to Sun 3/12/17

Hi Gman, Good idea and I will try to find time to post my thoughts when appropriate. As for today, the classiest race is our ‘own’ Listed OLBG Mares’ Hurdle for which there is a separate thread, which is worth checking out. https://www.olbg.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=6&t=66249 I have posted my select...

Re: 2017/18 Meydan Racing season - discussion & selections

Shame SPEEDY MOVE could only finish fourth and thus just failed to reward Each Way support, also interesting that only 2 winners today had run at the previous meeting and one of those Moosir had finished well behind on his seasonal debut, so didnt endure a hard race.
