No LoveMark!

Jason Lovemark stopped the winning run of the Racing Posts Steve Palmer at the weekend when his 1.5ew 80/1 pick managed to get himself into the lead on Sunday night before making a few double bogeys and bottling it. Despite that setback it was another great weekend of golf betting with Jeremy Chapman coming to the party in the form of Jason Duffner  winning at 40/1. Duffner battled it out with David Lingmerth who was a 70/1 selection from Nics picks so it made for very comfortable and enjoyable viewing and meant that Lovemark was soon forgotten about. Bryan who runs NicsPicks is constantly altering his staking pattern and ideas […]

Karlsberg dont do arbs….

…..But if they did then then one on Rikard last week at the Italian Open would surely be one of them. He was availible for a short while at 50 to back with lay money at 20 available . I can only think that the exciting finish to the event (with at one time it was looking like an 8 man play off) meant that it somehow got missed by trading teams . Made for an enjoyable afternoons golf. 🙂 Not quite as exciting over in the states with Jeremy Chapman’s pick making it “another Day another dollar” with relative ease however it was a small stakes bet . Little […]

Bumper edition

Well where to start…. First off everyone probably saw the BBC 1 series Britain at the Bookies- it raised all sorts of issues that I could probably fill a whole blog with and, in the main was an enjoyable and (reasonably) well balanced look at the industry . I took particular interest in episode two which featured Steve Palmer of Racing Post fame. SP came across as a highly likable individual and to anyone who followed him on twitter a few years back until he was “trolled out” ( have i just invented a new saying?)  that wont be any surprise. What did surprise/shock/horrify  me was his completely amateur approach […]

New years golf

Another lengthy interval between blog posts and much to write about and bore people with. However before I do that and update the  handful of people remotely interested in my life  I thought I’d share some stats on the previous years golf. I did the same thing last year and the results can be found here. So, as avid listeners will no doubt be aware I follow 2 golf betting tipsters Steve Palmer from the Racing Post  and Bryan Nicholson from the Nicspicks website . To all intents and purposes they are both free, the Racing Post costs me ÂŁ1.99 when I download it on my ipad on a Wednesday night (Note to […]

Back on the Rollercoaster

Cant believe its been more than a month since the last post but unfortunately for my legions of avid listeners I’m still here! The lack of posting has been purely and simply down to a lack of time- after becoming a dad 10 months ago I’m now in charge of Junior some days with Mrs Blogger returning to work. Hats off to any single parents out there as looking after a young child ,who is just discovering the word is a 100% full time job. At the moment everything in the house apparently  to be tested to see whether its edible! A current  speciality is playing with my iphone (harmless […]

Palmer to the rescue (take 3)

No not that Palmer. Its Ryan Palmer who has got the weekend off to an absolute booming start after being picked by Nic to be first round leader . Ok its a shame that Lee Westwood actually  remembered how to putt for a change however at 150/1 its a great start to the weekend. With Palmer also backed at 19/1 to be top 10 and a massive 200/1 to win it it could be an interesting few days  although with 37 players under par and therefore close there is a looong way to go yet. 54 holes to be precise. Its also the start of football season in the UK […]

Has Palmer lost it?

A strange title  perhaps considering that since my last post when I stated that Mr Palmer was 189 points down, he has found two winners. A  tad fortunate to see GMac  win in France at 12/1 but nothing  wrong  with  Brian Harman at a whopping 100/1 (although again a shame that this was only half a point). Add to that some decent placed golfers (Sergio quite unlucky I thought to run into Rory in that sort of form) and its a recovery of sorts, so why the doubting?. Last night I dutifully downloaded the Ipad app and backed his selections on the Canadian open (regular listeners will know that if […]

How times change …

A few years back Fred Done famously paid out on Man United to win the Premier league only for them to be overhauled by Arsenal, so its a sign of changing times when today Fred Done announced that they were refunding all bets on United  to win this years title. I’m not entirely sure what the rationale is behind this move (pity perhaps?) however its worrying when people take pity on you. I didn’t watch too much of yesterdays game due to being at a family function however I did watch the last few minutes and asked for the volume to be turned up at the end – why? To […]

Racing Post golf selections. Results 2013

One of my new year’s resolutions 12 months ago was to keep better records of my activity so that I could work out what better what was going well/not so well. Its slightly annoying to see that for some strange reason I only decided to implement this in sufficient detail from the 1st Feb 2013 so while this isn’t “complete” as such it will I think give a fair representation of the performance of the Racing Post golf team (which consists of Steve Palmer with Jeremy Chapman standing in from time to time and adding his own selections for big events). If you are a regular reader of the blog […]

DANGER UXB!

Viewers of a certain age will remember a TV series called Danger UXB which if my memory serves me correctly was shown on ITV on Sunday evenings in the late seventies. I’m not quite sure how they managed to make a whole drama series about bombs not going off however looks like they will need to be called out of retirement. Whys that? Well on Saturday Coral ran a promotion called a “price bomb”. To lots of noise they announced that they would be “significantly enhancing” the price of a horse in the 3pm at Cheltenham. It was only ever going to be one and the price of “The New […]
