Ticking over

A steady weekend on the betting front as a very boozy trip to Cardiff to see the washed out ODI followed by the 20/20  finals meant that betting opportunities were kept to a minimum.I had hoped that the phone coverage at the Swalec was going to be good enough to do a bit of “courtsiding ” but it was soon clear that this was never going to be the case so it was a day on the beer was the only option. Probably the certainty of the weekend was that Lanky the Giraffe wasn’t going to win the Mascot Derby after streaking ahead into a massive early lead only to […]

Thats better…..

A cracking result from the Golf Guru service last weekend who broke a recent lean spell with a nice 35/1 winner in the shape of Sergio Garcia at last weekends wyndham championship. Disappointingly  the tournament spilled over onto the Monday morning and was rather surprised that Sky didn’t televise it. No wobbles from Sergio as 4 birdies from the off put paid to any thought of a betting mishap,  It was a nice situation to be in as the man chasing him down the home straight was Racing Post two point pick Tim Clark so a “win win”. The RP golf  (Steve Palmer and Jeremy Chapman combined) is now 60 […]

“One bad swing…..

….. is all it takes”.  I must have repeated that phrase half a dozen times on Sunday evening when a few of my friends were asking me whether they thought Rorys price was too low and if it was worth a lay. I think my response was something along the lines of  “If the wind stays away he will win as he is hittting it very well,  its worth a lay though as it looks value.” As anyone one who watched the dramatic finale to the British open will know a four shot lead can disappear in a matter of minutes and one bad swing is all it takes. I […]

No mildly witty title…..

….For this post as its a bit of a “mash up” (as the yoof would say) of a few different things. First off an appeal- Does anyone know where Mark of horseracingtraders disappeared to? He packed up his main site as he moved back into the corporate world,  and was occasionally blogging whenever he dabbled in trading at the weekends. I was a member of his service (which looked superb) and this week thought I would reacquaint myself with  the videos on the site , only to find that unfortunately it  has been taken down. If anyone can let me know Marks new blog or twitter account  so I can […]
