  1. 405 Tipperary Pass The Ball 13/8 Bet365 Looks a good prospect over fences having won a couple of points this season. Ran under rules over hurdles last time out and absolutely bolted up over 3 miles. Drops back in trip here and goes over fences but he looks one to follow in this sort of grade before possibly going on to better things.
  2. The Open Championship Royal Birkdale The Open this year goes back to Royal Birkdale for the first time since Padraig Harrington won here in 2008. I'm fortunate enough to live just a 5 minute drive from the course and I can tell you the town is buzzing at the moment. All sorts of side events will be going on in and around Southport and we even have had the Town hall gardens transformed into a mini interactive golf centre. The weather forecast is pretty good as far as I can see, little rain expected and light winds. For those not local, Southport sits in its own micro climate, we have no snow, the sea can be two miles out and its always better than the weather forecast says. Royal Birkdale is on the coast but don'y be fooled into thinking you need to be able to play the wind here. I walk the dogs on Birkdale sands two or three times a week and its rarely windy, most of the course is a bit further in land and shielded by the dunes so I wouldn't expect any problems on that score. Just watch it now we will have a hurricane or something!! I'm going on Tuesday to have a look round during practise so will report anything about the course thats worthwhile. The course has not changed much over the years, it juts doesn't have the space to extend much and the actual yardage is about the same as it was in 2008. As long as you keep it straight enough I reckon the top players will find this test easy enough and I personally expect a double figure under par winning total. Local player Tommy Fleetwood will be a popular winner, born and bred in the town he has just won the French Open so is in terrific form. The local bookies will go bust if he pulls it off and its not out of the question. He will know the course well. It looks a wide open event and all the big names will fancy their chances, Dustin Johnson is the early favourite along with Jordon Spieth. Defending champion Henrik Stenson and the consistent Justin Rose will also be popular in the betting along with the enigmatic Rory McIlroy, if he's in the mood he could win this thing but it's a big IF.

  9. Results Well done to @Steve75 & @luckypants
  10. 255 Ripon Moseeb 2/1 Bet365 NAP Opened his account at York three weeks ago and carries a 6lb here in which the lockey takes half of that back off. Well regarded and looks sure to improve and I honestly thought he'd be even money or something. The Johnston horse also is a winner but was put in his place at Ascot last time so i'm expecting Moseeb to beat him.
  11. @Fanos @Xtc12 Just to say anything that is 8/1 or higher at 6pm the night before is automatically posted as an EW bet. 9 winners yesterday including two at 10/1 with early prices.

  14. Interesting that Noel Fehily and Richard Johnson have decided to go to Cartmel on Saturday despite a couple of big summer races taking place at Market Rasen. Fehily in particular is a strange one as he has only had 2 rides at the track since 2009 and one of those was a winner. He rides 2 for Neil Mulholland who himself is a rare visitor to the track, he has had 2 winners from 13 runners in the last 5 years. 415: Prettylittlething 525: Owners Day Richard Johnson has ridden here many times and had 16 winners in the same period but he doesn't have many for his boss Philip Hobbs, he has only had 5 runners here since 2012 and had one winner. They team up with one runner although Johnson does have other rides. 305 : Royal Village
  15. Cartmel: Quirky track, if you haven't been stick it on your list of must go to courses. Although the likes Donald McCain and Jimmy Moffatt have lots of winners at Cartmel they also have boat loads of runners. Surprisingly the best strike rate over the last 5 years belongs to Tim Easterby with 3 winners from just 9 runners. Kenneth Slack also does well with few runners. On Sunday T.Easterby has one runner - 5.00 What A Game K.Slack has two runners- 2.20 Oh So Gigilo and 5.00 Omid. Another stat about Cartmel, the favourites have a terrible record in handicaps at the track compared to non-handicaps. Only 23% of favourites in handicaps have won in the last 5 years, (42% non-handicaps)
  16. 210 Newbury Stage Magic NAP 6/5 Bet365 Fancied for his debut at Haydock and backed into 6/4, was a touch unlucky when finishing second to Leeshaan, he was running about and denied a clear passage that day. The form doesn't amount to an awful lot but improvement is expected and should get off the mark in this sort of contest.

  18. July 20 Lots of winners today, top 25 in profit
  19. 420 Leicester Ventura Knight Nap Evens Bet365 Nothing out of the ordinary on first three starts but got his head in front next time out at Beverley in good style. The step up in trip looked to be the key. Last time out over 7f at Carlisle he absolutely dotted up in his first handicap and a 6lb penalty here shoulnt stop his progression. Silvestre De Sousa teams up with Mark Johnston.

  22. Tipsters Challenge Football Competition *Start Date - August 12th 2017* Welcome to the brand new Punters Lounge Football Tipsters Challenge The competition will kick off on August 12th and our season will be split into four separate sessions. This allows us to keep things fresh and also for new players to join at various times of the season. Format as follows: 4 ten-week mini-seasons TC1 – Aug 12th – Oct 14th TC2 – Oct 21st – Dec 23rd TC3 – Dec 30th – Mar 3rd TC4 – Mar 10th – May 12th Entrants split into divisions, which will include 15 players in each. Players in the first mini-season will drawn at random to decide which division they will play in. After the first mini-season players will be distributed into divisions in order of their final total from the previous mini-season. (Top 15 players in Division 1, next 15 highest scorers in Div. 2 etc.…..) Each mini-season will last 10 weeks and players must play in at least 7 of those weeks in order to keep their place in the competition. (So you get 3 weeks off basically) Cash prizes will be awarded at the end of week 10 in that particular mini-season. Details to follow. Rules: Players start with a bank of 100pts Players can stake up to 50% of their current bank in any one week. Players can bet on the following markets: Outright Result, Both Teams To Score and Over/Under 2.5 goals. Players can bet on a single, a double or a treble on any of the accepted markets. All bets must be posted by 3pm on Saturday (earlier if it’s a Friday or Sat Midday game) Any bets posted outside these limits will be reduced in order written. (i.e.; 4 fold down to a treble) All markets can be mixed in whichever way the player chooses, including using the same match more than once on any particular match day. Prices to be taken from the supplied Odds thread only. (If it’s not on there, you can’t do it) The TC Odds thread will be posted up each Tuesday for the following weekend matches and selections threads will be set up at the same time. League tables will be posted once all matches have been completed for that week, typically this will be after the Monday night match. The Sat 3pm deadline for all bets is put in place so no one can gain an advantage by knowing if an opponent has won or lost before placing his bet. So strictly no posts allowed after the deadline will be accepted. More information to follow as we get closer to the start of the season.
