Tip of the Day. Horseracing 11 March 2016

Today’s racing is spread across the country and my selection today runs at Sandown.  The tip runs in the 4.25 so you may have to wait for your money!! Betting tip of the day selection. The selection for today is The Brock Again.  The horse won last time out and has been raised accordingly for this (3lbs).  It is used to running in small field events. I don’t foresee any problems with the tip having the run of the race.

Tip of the Day. Horse racing 8th March 2016

An early post for the tip of the day as I think the price will be considerably lower tomorrow.  My tip runs in the 2.00 at Exeter and is called \Thundering Home\.  It is generally available at 5/1 although there may be a little 11/2 still available in some places. This horse has won 5 previous hurdle races at various distances from 2m to 2m 4f so the trip is of no issue.  It has also won on varying ground

Southwell betting – get an adrenalin hit 07/03

It’s a dull March afternoon, and if you want to get a little bit of an armchair adrenalin hit on an otherwise unremarkable card, it is perhaps time to play the favourites for some Southwell betting action. With that in mind I have the following picks:- 14:00 #1 and #2 14:30 Fav 15:00 Fav 15:30 Fav 16:00 #1 and #4 16:30 Fav That makes for 44 trebles, 41 4-folds, 20 5-folds, and 4 accumulators. 109 bets in total.  It’s a

Tip of the Day. Football 5th March

The tip for tomorrow takes us up to Scotland.  I believe that \Dundee\ will be too strong for a Rangers team that will be without the fire power of their top goal scorer Martyn Waghorn.  Dundee rested numerous players in midweek in preparation for this tie and had a creditable 0-0 draw against Celtic at Parkhead. Therefore players will be coming into this lunchtime kick off fully refreshed and prepared to see their team into the semi final.  Rangers have

Tip of The Day. Tasty Football Treble 2nd March

Once again the tip today will be football related.  After last nights successful double I am aiming to go one better tonight and hit the bookies with a treble! So our first match involves \Real Madrid\.  They have beaten their opponents Levante the last 7 times they have met and Madrid have won the last 4 without conceding a goal.  They are generally available at 1/2 but the price is going fast. The next game takes us to Scotland and

Tip of The Day. Premier League 1st March

There is no particular horse that stands out for me today that is not running at very short odds so for today’s tip I am going to look at the English Premier League. There are 5 matches taking place this evening and I think I have lined up an away double that is currently returning at 9/4 but be aware the prices are coming down.  My two selections are \Everton\ and \Chelsea\ The 1st match is Aston Villa v Everton.

Betting tip today. Horseracing 29th February

Betting tip today Our betting tip today runs in the 2.30 at Plumpton and is called \The Green Ogre\. The Moore’s are local to the track and this horse usually turns in its better performances here. The Green Ogre is slowly coming down in the weights. It’s only win was at this course. I think will have enough to see of the likely favourite  Saffron Prince here. Risks to Green Ogre The only other danger potentially I feel is Bobbits

The Middlesex course will play host to no less than four Graded races on Saturday alone, however the biggest prize pool on offer can be found a little further afield up at Lingfield Park where ten flat hopefuls will compete for a share

Wales have 3 changes, 2 due to injuries, with Alex Cuthbert, Dan Lydiate and Bradley Davies coming into the squad. France make 4 changes and are almost unrecognisable to the average 6 Nations viewer. They had called in New Zealand-born David Smith during the week but

Capital One League Cup Final 28/02 – Tip of the day

Today’s tip is for the Capital One League Cup Final which takes place on Sunday 28 February KO 4.30pm. Both teams come into the match with a morale boosting win in Europe behind them, but I believe that City’s win was far more impressive and I think that they will want to avenge the 4-1 humiliation at the Etihad in November 2015 and also give Pellegrini the 1st of possibly 3 trophies as a leaving gift. Liverpool are not the

Tip of the day. Horseracing betting 25th February

Today’s tip is actually a double!! We are looking to hit the bookmakers early, hard and fast.  First we go to Huntingdon 1.45 and the selection is \Blue Rambler\ The going is no concern to this horse and it is gaining weight from its only main rival in the market, at slightly odds and with Aidan Coleman on board I think this is great value and sets us up nicely for the 2nd selection. For this we cross over to

Horseracing tip of the day. Betting 23rd February

Here’s my top horseracing tip for Wolverhamptom this evening. Finally the weather has perked up and we’re in for a lovely day’s racing. There’s some fine opportunities for betting too. Unusually for Wolverhampton there are some quite comptetitive fileds. In the last race of the day you have \Big Shoes\ to fill Click on the link to see the latest odds, but as I write the early price betting has it at 7/2. Must be worth a £10 bet. Also

PDC Premier League Darts Week 3 Preview After 2 weeks of the darts league it’s hard to call a winner. Adrian Lewis is top but he’s had the easier start to the campaign having faced Dave Chisnall and Michael Smith. James Wade was looking good after his 7-4 win over Michael van Gerwen in week 1 but a 7-1 hammering by Phil Taylor brought him back down. Taylor had lost to Raymond van Barneveld in week 1 before beating Wade

When World Snooker’s chairman comes out and declares one of it’s players as disrespectful to the sport and its fans, it may not surprise some to find out that he was indeed talking about Ronnie O’Sullivan. The rocket. One of the great sporting mavericks, he is never far from controversy. Monday was no different. Competing in the first round of the Welsh Open, Ronnie was well on his way to clearing the table in a single visit. There was a

With the australian Open upon us and Novak Djokivic and Roger Federer safely through to the semi-finals expect Milos Raonic and Andy Murray to join them tomorrow. Raonic takes on Monfils in the 3rd quarterfinal. They haven’t faced each other since 2013. While Monfils has won their previous 2 encounters, Raonic is finding his form this week. The best value can be found on set betting with several bookmakers offering 11/2 for a Raonic win 3 sets to 2. Andy

  England have a new coach, a new squad and a new captain. We all wait with baited breath to see if the formula will work after a very disappointing World Cup. Eddie Jones has chosen several young, talented players but will they make it on the big stage? The bookmakers seem to think so, hanging the favourite tag on them, although they are not as confident it will be a Grand Slam. Ireland and Wales are hovering between 2nd

Short Odds Betting

Is the price right? Whether it’s Chelsea to win at home against a bottom of the table struggler. Or Celtic to win the Scottish Premier League. One would assume that there are enough short-priced selections out there to cumulatively make a few quid over time. The problem is that no matter how much of a sure thing something may seem, a massive upset is never too far away and serves as an often painful reminder that nothing in life is

A Tale of Three Stallions – A Brief History of Racehorse Breeding

Here’s a tale of three stallions. Whether you’re listening to, watching or reading about horse racing, there always seem to be a strong undercurrent of chatter going on regarding lineage and breeding. This is the process by which one horse is selectively bred with another to produce specific traits in the foal. From the outside looking in, it seems a pretty simple format in that if I have a horse blessed with wonderful stamina but it struggles with speed, then
