    Hunter Chase - 8.40 Huntingdon

    Before I get into the Huntingdon race just a quick look back on the Aintree bumper on Friday. First of all the selection You Too Bonny Lass ran way below her debut run at Hereford and was a big disappointment. The turn of foot she showed that day wasn't there on Friday and connections might be wishing they had sent her to the sales instead. Maybe she will turn out to be a one race wonder, but it will be interesting to see what she does next and if she can bounce back. The winner paid a small bit of his price tag back and I thought it was a good effort from Garry Clermont considering a 2m1f bumper isn't going to suit him. He will be interesting to follow next season under rules. Dino Boy made him work very hard for the win and it was a good effort from him as well as Granny's Secret in 3rd and Roseisaroseisarose in 4th. Those 4 pulled well clear of the rest who were headed by Merchant House who as I thought was not suited by this test. The form of these point-to-point bumpers have been very hit and miss going forwards, but this one could be worth following the form of in future. I'm pretty certain this Huntingdon race used to be restricted to horses from the local pointing areas, but this year horses from all over the country have been allowed and it is two of those who head the market. Saffron Wells is odds on as I type. Ahead of the Cheltenham race I thought he would cope with the drop down in trip to 2m, but he didn't and all he did was stay on behind Sam Cavallaro. The 2nd to Herbert Park is good form as well which came the weekend before the Cheltenham effort. For me they are the best two pieces of form in the race and he is the right favourite. Bletchley Castle has two ones next to his name and he won those races by 18L and 30L. The problem for me though is he didn't beat very good horses with Fair Exchange badly out of form this season and Mirs Choice just not very good. He ran in Hunter Chases at Taunton, where he achieved little in coming a distant 2nd to Master Baker, and at Stratford where he pulled up. His jumping over rules fences isn't the best and that could be an issue round here. I'm not sure he truly stays 3m but he might get away with it round here. Bletchley Castle is a front runner, but so is Knockedoutloaded and they could take each other on. He loves Peper Harow as he won for the 3rd time and the value 10 days ago, but the odds on favourite who had beaten him by 12L at Northaw fell at the 5th so it might have been a lucky win. He does have Gina on top which is a big plus, but his form is nothing special. The fact Blackwood Rover is rated 72 shows how poor his form was the last time he was seen under rules. He has won his last two points so does have that going for him. He was all out to win them though one over 2m4f and one over 3m. I'm not sure he's desperate for this trip and I would be more interested in him in a weak handicap over the summer than in this. I sort of think Sand Blast is overpriced, but at the same time I don't really think he can win. He found winning hard under rules and he is 0-12 in points, but he has run well this season when ridden by Antonia Peck. The pick of the efforts was when they were beaten a short head at High Easter in March. He hasn't been at that level the last twice though and was last at Garthorpe last time out. The other concern was he was awful in two hunter chases last season. He might be worth a small bet in the betting without markets in the morning though depending on price. Torran Na Dtonn looked like he might be progressive in 2017, but he went missing for nearly two years. He returned with a promising effort in December when falling at Cottenham and then fell at the same track later that month when getting into contention. I was at Charing when he was 3rd and I thought he went off way too hard and then paid for that effort late on. He did though make it further at Stratford than Bletchley Castle although they both pulled up. His last run he was well beaten by The Gunner Brady, but he at least has won since. Again he might not win, but I'm not sure he should be as big as 40/1 in this field. I think Safron Wells is the most likely winner, but I don't want to back him at odds on so I will wait to see if we get a drift before having a bet on him. I don't think Sand Blast and Torran Na Dtonn should be so big in the betting, but at the same time I'm not sure either can win the race. Again I will wait and see what the morning brings as regards to their prices in the betting without markets. So at this stage there is no bet.

    Tipsarevic to beat Gojowczyk at 2.35 with Unibet Gojowczyk is out of form at all, he played 5 games on clay this year and lost 4 of them. Tipsarevic is far from his best days, but in Houston he showed he can still play good tennis. There he reached the quarterfinals after defeating Norrie and Sandgren before dropping out of Querry after 2 tiebreaks. I think the Serb has a good chance of winning, I do not think that Gojowczyk has any advantage here.

    Hunter Chase - 5.40 Worcester

    Before getting to the preview a quick look back at Warwick on Wednesday. Sometimes you just have to hold your hands up and say the best horse won. I thought Zac gave Killaro Boy a really good ride because he knew if he let Marcle Ridge get an easy lead then he could be hard to peg back. He was clearly primed for this and it was a really decent effort given how easy he won. Hard to know though where he goes from this. I guess he might feature among the Stratford entries on Saturday, but otherwise its into handicaps and if the handicapper puts him up then it is hard to think he is well treated. I think this is as good as Marcle Ridge is and like I said in the preview it was not a strong race he won at Cheltenham. Garde Ville has regressed from last season for sure and he was well beaten. Master Sunrise went back to his sulking ways although they probably went too fast for him. I still would be tempted if he goes handicapping this summer as his mark will drop again after this. I'd have like to have taken Sausalito Sunrise on really, but I just can't see what is going to beat him and he easily has the best form in the race this season. It was a solid enough comeback after 2 years off at Chepstow and then he went on to beat solid yardstick Ravished at Hexham. I thought that was a good effort and he really should be winning this based on that. I was hoping the bookies might base the prices on BHA ratings as Diamond King is rated 13lbs higher than the favourite. Sadly though they haven't fallen into that trap. The former Cheltenham Festival winner has won 2 of his 4 starts in points and the first start was impressive. The 2nd to Dabinett Moon was a solid effort on his next start and he was in front of Kalabaloo so that was good as well. Only beating Moscow Prices by a couple of lengths the next start wasn't great and then he was 3rd last time although the form comment suggests that Phine Banks was out ridden which to be honest isn't a massive surprise. Silvergrove achieved very little when beating a very under par Sir Jack Yeats at Fakenham. His two previous runs were poor so on the balance he has to be taken on especially as I didn't think a great deal of his pointing form in 2017. Drumhart has been supported in the early beting. I can sort of see why as some of his placed pointing form has been decent this season. A close 3rd to Optimised and then a 2nd to a good horse in Wishing And Hoping were good efforts. He was then 3rd to Knight Bachelor when 2m4f was too sharp a trip. He then won a couple of weakish race. He was a well beaten 3rd last time though. The other problem is his jumping which isn't always great in points and was pretty bad when he was tried in 3 handicaps last summer. Those came off marks of 10, 98 and 96 twice under James King and once under Richard Johnson. He has had a wind op ahead of going back pointing this season so that might help bring some improvement about, but it isn't going to help his jumping. Chances are he is going to have to run at least 20lbs better than he did in those handicaps last summer. I can't have Kit Barry at all. They said after he won last week that Cheltenham might have left a mark so for them to run again so soon is surprising. I wouldn't fancy him anyway though as this is stronger than last Fontwell. I think at this stage I am going to make it a no bet race. 4/5 about Sausalito Sunrise seems about right to me and he looks the most likely winner. It's hard to even put up a forecast play as I don't really like any of the others strongly enough to put them up at this stage as they all have questions to answer. I will see what the market does tomorrow and add any bets then.

    Barcelona vs Valencia The curtain falls on the Spanish domestic season this coming weekend with the Copa del Rey Final between La Liga champions Barcelona and Champions League qualifiers Valencia. The two teams will go head-to-head in an 8pm kick-off (note the time change from the initial scheduled time listed with the odds above) on Saturday evening at the Benito Villamarin in Seville. Barcelona secured the La Liga title to add to their ever-growing trophy cabinet. Ernesto Valverde will be hoping to make it a domestic double for a second consecutive season. The odds are heavily in their favour but is this a foregone conclusion before a ball has been kicked? Barcelona fans don't seem entirely happy with Valverde and that can be purely blamed on a premature exit in the Champions League. Valencia have had an encouraging season under Marcelino. Qualification for next season's Champions League was achieved so expectations were at least met, if not exceeded. Can they take inspiration from their run to the Europa League Semi-Finals to deny Barcelona a fifth straight Copa del Rey trophy win? Los Che can take confidence from their 2-2 draw against Barcelona at the Nou Camp. on 2nd February. It was clear that the best way to approach this Barcelona side was with an effective counter-attacking strategy. If they can hold the Catalan side over 90 minutes then maybe, just maybe, they could upset the odds. It certainly seems worth backing Valencia as a handicap here.

    I did actually run the result through my spreadsheet without the double points and Ian still won overall (though obviously helped by the fact of us getting more runners due to the double points), Barry hung on to 2nd and muttley and Marek tie for 3rd. I think I compared it last month too and it didn't actually affect the result then, but Craig did rather run away with it anyway! 1.5x instead of double this month still produces the same result. No-one was really dominating this month, placings and points were being shared around so we were all closer together going in to the final leg.

    Any of those would be my choice too! Razz is maybe the easiest to pick up, for anyone unfamiliar with it? We could try a double header, I could set up a Razz and a PLO, $3 each. I'm away until Tuesday, see if we get any feedback, and I'll set something up then

    Thanks Helen... I am the living proof that even a blind squirrel will eventually find a nut As for the 'fun' game next week, my preference would be for Razz or Badugi, or even 2-7 Triple Draw, all great games, but I'm guessing they probably wouldn't get many takers. So unless there's a tidal wave of requests from members for one of these, how about PLO ?

    T.Daniel to beat Jarry at 2.75 with Bet365 I think that Jary is a little overrated here. He is not in good shape at all, he has defeated 2 opponents so far, but Kudla and Ebden are neither in good shape nor prefer to play on clay. Daniel has recorded an impressive victory over Garin, a player who has been impressed in recent months. For me the odds should be more equal and I am happy to get 2.75 for Daniel’s win here.

    I've done a win bet on the outright at 25/1 also harry. I may sell in running if he has a good start (on the spread). One thing that puzzled me about Rashid khan was a seeming disparity between the spread and fixed odds (6 on spread 20/1 on fixed odds). Also going back to Kuldeep yadav he was 17 on the spread and 33/1 on fixed odds. After I placed the kuldeep bet I saw an interview with Nasser hussain who said the Indians would go with jadeja , chahal and maybe kuldeep, which was a little worrying.

    Hunter Chase - 4.55 Warwick

    I shall start with Huntingdon and a good result with Saffron Wells winning. Some might say he was a lucky winner and I do think Bletchley Castle would have probably one but for the awful mistake 3 out, but as I pointed out in the preview his jumping was always going to be an issue so it was no surprise he threw in a howler. As we all know jumping is the name of the game and no doubt his supporters will have wished the race was run whilst the sun was still out. Given he went into the open ditch first time around going as fast as Black Caviar it was some effort for him to finish as close as he has. I wonder if trying him over hurdles might work for him. Blackwood Rover came looked the winner, but he just didn't stay and jumped the last a tired horse. Basically the race fell into Saffron Wells' lap, but it had the look of that sort of race beforehand so whilst I didn't want to back him at odds on I was happy to take the chance at odds against and this time it worked out. Sand Blast ran OK, but didn't really see out the trip and the market move for Knockedoutloaded was strange given he was never going to get an easy lead. Decent prize on offer as always for the Crudwell Cup and its an interesting race. Marcle Ridge is favourite on the back of his dominant Cheltenham win. He only knows one way of running so will be attempting to make all. He is clearly progressive and he jumped really well at Cheltenham, but as I said in my review of the card it was a bad race and beating Kit Barry is nothing special. Killaro Boy is making his UK debut and his first run for 251 days. He was 3rd at the Punchestown Festival last year in a handicap hurdle off 114 and he is rated higher over fences. I'm not sure he is going to stay and he will need to given the favourite will be going off at a good gallop. Given it is his first run for so long as well that is also going to be a concern. He could win, but I just wonder if its a case of giving him a run ahead of a summer campaign. Garde Ville won this race last year and then went on to win the John Corbett Cup the week after. He was impressive in this last year and at his best he would have a very good chance. The problem is I just don't think he's been quite as good this time around. He has won twice, but finishing 2nd has become a habit. He looked the winner at Bangor back in March only for Optimised and Unioniste to overtake him. That was good form, but it has what he's done since which is a concern. He won next time in a 3 runner race at 2/5, but has finished 2nd in his next 4 starts including Tabley on Sunday. I think he is at his best on softer ground this will be his 7th race in the last 2 months so surely he wont be at his best. Chase Me has won 3 on the bounce after taking a while to break his maiden tag, but hard to see how he can take the leap to win a race like this. A handicap mark of 80 could look attractive though if they decided to exploit that. Master Sunrise ran better than the bare result suggests at Cheltenham and he does look a big price again as it was certainly a step up from his first two efforts where he sulked. Back down in trip I think he can run well again, but surely they will be looking to exploit a falling handicap mark in a summer handicap. Crazy he is the same price as After Aspen as I type as I know which one I wouldn't be wanting to back in a match bet especially as Master Sunrise ran much better than he did at Cheltenham. As much as I don't think he beat much at Cheltenham there are questions about his main rivals here and if he puts in the same sort of performance I think he could be hard to catch so I make him the bet.

    Taylor Fritz to beat Richard Gasquet at 1.73 with Ladbrokes Gasquet doesn't look healthy at all to me, big issues against Janvier as well, while Fritz has been out-playing strong opposition on clay recently. You obviously don't know the motivations of the players right before the French Open, but Gasquet probably can't risk anything fitness-wise if he wants to show up at RG.

    I'm a little surprised to see Nadal so short (4/7 best price). I know he's been playing better recently and appears to be getting stronger as the clay season progresses and was impressive against Tsitsipas in the semi. Djokovic by contrast has been mugging about in some of his recent matches and should have lost to Del Potro in the quarters. But we know he raises his game massively when playing Nadal and has has the better of him in recent years, even on clay. I agree with you CP, although Nadal appears to be getting stronger, I still think he's missing something and I'm not convinced he can regain some of his old mojo. Djokovic is a bad match up for him, so at the prices I'll be on the Serb.

    Katerina Siniakova (-3.5) to beat Mandy Minella at 1.82 with Pinnacle This looks like a match that Siniakova should finally be able to win and win well at that. Her form might not be as good as Minella's, but she's been competing against tougher opponents and this is a decent step down from the likes of Kasatkina, Bertens, or Strycova. Siniakova reached the SFs here last time out and I wouldn't be surprised by a repeat of that.

    We get to the final game of the Non-League season and hopefully a final winning bet as well. The big question here is how Fylde will cope after losing in the Play-Off Final last week. It wasn't a great game and although Fylde saw a fair bit of the ball, especially in the first half, they weren't good enough in either box and Salford ran out comfortable winners in the end. So will Fylde be determined to not lose again or will they struggle mentally to get over losing the big prize? What we also have to factor in is the fact they have played 3 games since Orient played their last competitive match so it could mean Orient are ring rusty. I thought it was a great piece of management from Justin Edinburgh to organise a friendly against an U23 team from Aston Villa last week, a game which they won 3-1. I know friendlies are obviously very different from a competitive match, but it was crucial for them to get a match under their belts ahead of this game. I am firmly in the Leyton Orient camp here. They deservedly claimed the National League title and I would be amazed if this isn't their only appearance in an FA Trophy Final. Some might think that with the big prize won they won't care so much about this, but I don't buy that for a second. A chance to do a big double like this is very rare for a team like Orient and they will be backed by 23000 fans and they will be desperate to do the double for the fans just as much as themselves. They have been so strong defensively this season having conceded the fewest goals in the division. If we look at the aggregate scores over the 2 league games then it was 5-1 to Orient and they were impressive in both victories as well. The question I pondered in the first paragraph about Fylde's mental ability to get over last weekend is an interesting one, but I fall on the side of them struggling to get over it. Especially as they were so easily beaten in the end. It has to play on their mind when they come out onto the pitch and the fact they have to play the champions of the division, a team they have been well beaten by twice already this season is also going to have a part to play. Danny Rowe was pretty anonymous last week and he never really had much of a sniff of scoring a goal. If that happens again here then Fylde will struggle to score and given how stingy Orient's defence is then I can imagine they might well struggle to score. Man for man Orient are the better side and I think they have a lot of things in their favour on Sunday afternoon. The only slight worry I have is if they are a bit rusty especially in the early stages, but hopefully that friendly has helped in that regard and it won't be an issue. No doubt Macauley Bonne will be popular in the first goalscorer market and he found his feat again in April scoring a couple having only scored 4 in the league in the previous 3 months. Josh Koroma might offer a bit more value in that market though if you are looking to play. I am going to have a small interest in Orient winning 2-0 which is priced up at 10/1 with Bet 365, but Orient to win it in 90 minutes at 36/25 looks a really good bet to me.

    2019 Cricket World Cup

    I have decided to have a speculative bet on this tournament. The format is a round robin involving 10 teams each playing each other. The top 4 progress to the semi finals so non qualifying teams will play 9 matches and qualifying teams up to 11 (i don't think there is a 3rd and 4th play off). Rashid Khan was in feb 2018 rated the top ICC bowler in ODI's. He is Afghanistan's best player and rated one of the best ODI bowlers in the world. Sporting index have a top bowler index which pays 100-50-25 I have bought him at 6. This is risky as he will in all likelihood only play 9 games and they are only paying out on the top 3 but he is likely to be the top wicket taker for Afghanistan whereas the better sides are more likely to share the wickets around. To counter that the top teams are likely to take more wickets. Small stakes only as risky. The top batsmen index is the same format 100-50-25 babar azam looks a cheap buy at 8 (kohli is 24 to buy for example) he may not finish top 3 but there may be in running trading possibilities 2 others that look cheap are chris gayle and steve smith both are 7 to buy the problem with gayle is his age and fitness. he can barely run and jogs between wickets.

    PL Poker League

    I'm glad you brought this up Paul, I was having similar thoughts myself. I couldn't play the first leg for well documented reasons and then I finished 6th out of 7 runners in the second leg, so I should have been effectively out of the running for top spot this month. I have benefited hugely from the new scoring system but it's definitely to the detriment of the likes of Barry who had built up a healthy lead after three legs and looked set for a comfortable top three finish. I agree that it probably needs tweaking but I'm not sure how. Scoring points for all four legs could work, as it rewards those who put the most money into the pot(s), but it also penalises those who can't play one or more legs for whatever reason. 1.5X points for the last leg is a possibility, but ultimately people will look at the league table after three legs and attempt to calculate the odds and work out if it's worth them playing. At the end of the day, the effectiveness of the points multiplier for the last leg is wholly dependent on the number of runners it gets... and that number is not known until the end of Late Reg. This is definitely worth a debate and it would be interesting to hear the thoughts of the wider player pool

    PL Poker League

    My own thoughts are that it's been a big success, but have we shifted the advantage too far to the winners of the final leg? In previous months the final leg often suffered because the top places were more or less decided. It wasn't uncommon to see only 5 runners, all competing for 3rd place in the league, so seeing 12 last night was very reassuring. However, I secured 2nd place overall with two second places, a last place and a non-runner. So maybe there's too much of an advantage to the winners of the last leg? Does it need tweaking? Maybe 1.5X pts for the final leg? Maybe score pts for all 4 legs? Maybe leave it as it is?

    Tennis Tips - May 20 - May 25

    Shilin Xu (+1.5 sets) to beat Aliona Bolsova Zadoinov at 2.23 with Sbobet Shilin Xu is a legitimate up-and-coming player in my opinion and she produced a brilliant performance against Vogele in the first round, so I think that there is value in backing her here in some form as well. I don't know why, but Chinese players tend to be really prepared for GS quallies, I noticed that last year and this season seems to be similar in some respects. Anyway, I was expecting something like 1.80 for this.

    the 7/2 sounds tempting harry but the poorer teams nowadays are no mugs and with 50 overs if a team gets off to a bad start they will consolidate. on balance I think i'll leave

    Betgps and new_league_data

    Thanks to betgps Excel data. I've been able to create a prediction page in it which works perfectly well. Prediction includes Home win, Away win, Over 1.5, Over 2.5,Btts, Under 3.5. I'll post this later when I make the sheet clean BUT is there anyone who can also create a compilation of the new league data like betgps OR if anyone can send a video of how to go about it, I can do it since I have a lot of free hours to myself. I am just learning Excel and I have cracked my head trying to do the same thing and summit it to the forum or to betgps himself as an art appreciation. Any help will do.
