  1. Is this fake news? See: This shows the Berlin Derby on both SkySports Football (which I have) and BT (which I don't) at 7.30pm. My VirginMedia TV Guide does not show it, nor does Sky online schedule. Probably an error ???
  2. You're absolutely correct. sorry to bear fake news.
  3. It looks like both GGR and Gulfstream have been closed down, leaving only Tampa.
  4. Tampa and ShaTin on SkySports Racing (per Betfair TV guide).
  5. Very disappointed! I spent an hour making a few picks for WRD, only to find out now that it's not on SSR. The cards weren't even on RP website so that should have been a clue I guess; though Gulfstream was on TV on Sunday, but no cards in RP. My fix for the night is blown.
  6. South Africa closes Friday until at least April 17.
  7. I haven't seen South African racing on SSR for ages. I guess they stopped carrying it ??? It was interesting to watch the pundit, Joe d'Amato's tips. It would be great if SSR start again, maybe even start showing some greyhounds too.
  8. While we're on this subject, here's a related question for you experts. The RPR ratings on the day of a race are clearly adjusted for jockey weight, etc. Do any of you know the formulae used to arrive at an RPR for raceday?
  9. Better this year, but I used to feel that Ascot felt races could be off at their convenience. Eg it's off time and they are only just thinking about loading the stalls..
  10. Britain has always had races starting at INTEGER multiples of 5 minutes. I noticed on Saturday strange start times like 1.03 at Wetherby and Musselbrough. Similar today at Donny and Huntingdon. The Daily Mail explains why: It's a one month exeperiement to try to avoid races starting while one is in progress to help TV coverage. Actually, I believethat this year most courses have done a better job at getting races off on time than previously. It's more difficult to remember 1.03 than 1.05, etc. I don't like it.
  11. What a nail-biter. I thought 2/5 was stealing money; but then down the toilet after day one. However, all's well that ends well.
  12. 2019 Presidents Cup results, scores, standings: Tiger Woods saves U.S. from shutout on shocking Day 1 The International team holds a 4-1 lead after one session, and history tells us that's insurmountable
  13. My previous comment about "Stealing money Traps" reminded me of a famous Harry Findlay quote:"The bigger the odds on, the more you put on". 🙂
  14. I took a quick look at the teams, see On that basis, I've decided 2/5 the US is OK with PP (ties lose). A "stealing money" trap ???
  15. It never ceases to amaze me how often the hottest favs manage to lose straight-up (money line). Take yesterday; Indy -10.5 managed to lose. NO -13.5 managed to lose. (Of course Balt -10.5 did win and cover.). It would be great to see a historic stat on the backing the week's biggest dog money line.
  16. 21.13 Just checked page 660, and it's back! So we get it for a bit longer.
  17. For some time, BBC Freeview SD channels have been the only channels carrying teletext - clearly it was on borrowed time. A week or so back, I heard BBC Teletext would end in the new year. Well, it seems like the new year has come early with just some old racing news on Page 660 today. I actually found Page 660 quite handy for results when downstairs. Of course I can use my phone or look at the PC upstairs - but still missed.
  18. Whatever happened to cross (stakes around) bets? Eg, a great bet was: (with 2 selections at say greater than 4/1) £1 cross and £1 double, stake £3. I don't see much of the Round Robin either. Dad (old northeren independent bookie) used to do all this stuff, mostly worked out by head/hand. [I've still got his "Each way - all each way doubles" Ready Reckoner with the pages about worn through.] My racing pal likes to pick ~10/1 chances, so the Lucky 15 with TRIPLE odds for one winner was a great bet for him. I think that was with Betfred.
  19. VT, Using NFL Power Rankings also suggests it should New Orleans by 12. Yet PP says by 3 - a huge difference. Are we missing something, eg key player(s) out?
  20. I don't think it's my video card, but in the past few days the font has changed. It seems smaller and thicker (more bold). This results in the numbers for the last 6 runs having poor legibity when they really are bold (eg all weather, points, etc). Just me ?
  21. VT, What factors into your predicted spreads? Is it some kind of power rankings? I'm then assuming that yout prediction becomes a bet if if the difference from available spreads is greater than a given number? Good luck on Week 4.
  22. Serena was a lost bet for me too. Had her at 5/1. Having never heared of Andrescu, I didn't bother laying a bit back. I couldn't even watch with Amazon Prime Video having a UK exclusive (Terrible on the part of the US Open - 90% of audience gone, just to accept the biggest shilling. Too much of this going on.) For the men's, I've been talked into Nadal 3-1 at 12/5 by PaddyP. Bookmaker's tips should obviously be treated with caution, though he did refund Novak bets 🙂. No great confidence, but we'll see.
  23. Sounds like it's on Eurosport, but not "British Eurosport".
  24. US Open TV Coverage: I think it's a poor do that it's only on Amazon Prime, or on a miniature screen on bookie sites. Are the latter stages available on regular off-air, satellite or cable channels?
