Glorious Goodwood: Day Four

14:00 Betfred Glorious Stakes We start with a Group 3 race where The Corsican sets a good standard. It was disappointing to see him taken out of the King George on Saturday considering he does have good form on soft ground. However connections felt differently and trainer David Simcock says he’s better on fast ground. […]

Glorious Goodwood: Day Three

Did I say yesterday looked tricky? Well there have been worse days on the punting front. Taws started the day finishing second at 16/1 then Scottish also returned second at 8/1. In the Sussex Stakes Arod finished second behind Solow landing the 11/4 withouth the favourite bet. In the Molecomb Rouleau finished third at 8/1. […]

Glorious Goodwood: Day Two

Yesterday was a competitive day of racing and there was one winner, Galileo Gold, at 6/1 and a few placed horses too. After a dry day you’d expect the ground to have changed and quickened up a little making the withdrawal of Gleneagles the other day more surprising. The racing today looks cagey at best […]

Glorious Goodwood: Day 1

The rain caused havoc over the weekend and it has caused a few notable non-runners already ahead of this weeks racing. It’s worth starting by saying that Gleneagles won’t be running in the Sussex Stakes tomorrow. The ground is currently described as good to soft but hopefully with no more rain forecast it’ll dry out […]

Weekly Blog 27-31 July 2015

Evening People, Well, who said Sergey Kovalev would win easily? Moi! ha-ha. It was an easy night’s work for the Light heavyweight Champion as he blew away Nadjib Mohammedi within three rounds. This match-up was destined to go less than six rounds because of the two boxers involved and I will highlight any other ‘dead certs’ […]

Bundesliga Preview

Part 1: Title Musings As the new football season creeps up on us, or rather is shoved in our face every minute by twitter reminders, it is time to have a look at the Bundesliga and some permutations for the coming months. I’m going to start with a look at the top of the table […]

World Matchplay: Semi-Finals

Well if you read the preview you would have had the winners of all four quarters, which set up these two semi-finals. A £1 four-fold on the quarter winners would have returned just over £50.   Michael van Gerwen v Peter Wright I put forward Peter Wright in the preview at 33/1 and I’m sticking […]

Matt’s Money Makers: July 25

The rain caused chaos yesterday with lots of going changes and through out doubts over the participation of Golden Horn in the King George VI. With further rain expected on the already soft ground it’s best to look for horses that relish the slower ground, especially at turf tracks in the south. There is plenty […]

World Matchplay: Day 7

Last night saw world number 1 Michael van Gerwen get a thorough testing from Ian White. The Dutchman came through the test to win 16-13 despite trailing 6-1 at one stage. In the other Quarter-Final Peter Wright brushed past Gerwyn Price winning 16-7. ‘Snakebite’ averaged just over 98 and had a checkout rate of 48%; […]

World Matchplay Day 6

Once again the double lost out after world champion Gary Anderson put in a disappointing performance, landing just 13 of 42 attempts at a double! Of course credit must go to Mensur Suljovic who played his own game and threw great darts at crucial times. The quarter-finals begin tonight at the Winter Gardens in Blackpool. […]

Thursday 23rd July 2015

Hello People, We are approaching Thursday morning and I’ve yet to back anything all week. The first reason is that I’m on holiday and the second reason is that there isn’t anything worth backing. Like Mike P mentioned the other day that he will be ignoring friendlies and preliminary Europa League ties and I have […]

World Matchplay Day 5

An incredible performance from Gerwyn Price saw the Welshman defeat two-time world champion Adrian Lewis and subsequently ruin yesterday’s double. Michael van Gerwen -6.5 legs at 4/5 was an easy winner but 11/10 shot Simon Whitlock blew a 9-6 lead over Ian White, with the pair drawing 7-7 in the 180 count. Wednesday night sees […]

World Matchplay Day 4

Mixed results from Monday’s bets as Robert Thornton let down the double but a number of singles landed. Over 16.5 legs in Chisnall/Caven, over 15.5 legs in Barney/Hamilton and Phil Taylor to win, most 180’s and highest checkout were all winners. The second round begins on Tuesday night with the world number one in action […]
