  1. Re: BBOTD 21st June Into eights! Good luck Aidy!
  2. Re: Daily Racing Chat Thread Great stuff from Telescope, very impressive. Now come on Aljamaaheer.
  3. Re: BBOTD 21st June Ascot 3:45 I get the feeling Hillstar is being underrated here. Back at Ascot on good to firm ground we should see Hillstar at his best giving him a good chance of beating Stoute's other runner Telescope. Although Ryan Moore has gone with Telescope and he too should relish the conditions it's hard to pick a winner between the two. However at this price with Hillstar back at Ascot in his favoured conditions he's a far more attractive bet to me. Hillstar - 1pt Win 11/2 Coral

  5. Re: Daily Racing Chat Thread Anyone else finding it unbelievably hard to pick winners at Ascot? Finally got a winner today.
  6. Re: BBOTD > Friday June 20th Ascot 2:30 Bazzana ran superbly last time out in Windsor where she won by 10L. The time was impressive and she looks like a promising filly although that run was on soft. Martyn Meade's Venezia put in a very credible effort yesterday afternoon and with Ryan Moore booked I can see Bazzana going very well here provided she takes to the ground. Bazzana - 1pt Win 10/1 Coral

  10. Re: Royal Ascot 2014 ~ Day 1 Tuesday 17th 3:45 Ascot Hot Secret is being well backed after his win in the Temple Stakes but Pearl Secret deserves more attention running very well in behind losing by only half a length. That day Pearl Secret gave away 8lbs and looked to be closing in before Hot Streak held him off well in the dying stages. Pearl Secret finished third in this contest last year and the way he finishes races strongly should give him an advantage over Hot Streak coming up the hill to to the finish. Hot Secret looks a terrific prospect but he's up 2lbs after his win in the Templ
  11. Re: BBOTD ''Tuesday'' 17th June 2014 16:25 Ascot Having seen numerous runners from the 2000 Guineas run blinders since it's worth looking at Toormore and War Command to continue the trend. Both had very impressive form as two year olds and will show more over the season but I'm tending to side with Toormore here. Connections were disappointed at his Guineas run and suggested his lightning quick performance in the Craven 16 days earlier may have effected him at Newmarket. Kingman went on and won the Irish Guineas in style but I can't take him at that price with Night of Thunder back and two

  13. Re: BBOTD > Sunday June 15th Chantilly 2:45 The favourite hasn't proven enough to be this short and Miss France might find the ground to soft here so I think it's worth taking a look at the French Guineas. Avenir Certain ran a stormer ahead of Veda who is heading for the Coronation Stakes later this month and kept both Xcellence and Bawina over 3 lengths behind at Longchamp. Although there are a few concerns about the longer trip this unbeaten filly is sired by a Group 1 winner over 1m 2f and avoided the shorter Coronation Stakes for this race so I think she can stay the distance. I've
  14. Re: Royal Ascot 2014 - discussion thread War Command backed into 13/2 Rob. Any reason for this sudden change? Edit: Thought War Command liked the firmer ground but looks as if I was wrong. Ground gone a touch softer in Ascot after rain and he seems to be receiving support as a result.
  15. Re: BBOTD > Saturday June 14th Sorry forgot the race. It's the 2:55 at Sandown.
  16. Re: BBOTD > Saturday June 14th Going to give this a shot over the summer! Ambiance was promising early on last season before tailing off so the move to new trainer Roger Varian may be just what the colt needs. He raced at Grade 1 and 2 level last season showing the faith his former trainer had in his potential and if he can show that sort of level in this listed race tomorrow he should be hard to beat. His first run for his new yard was disappointing but with a race under his belt and blinkers attached for the first time tomorrow he could be set for a return to form. Favourite G Force a
  17. Re: Royal Ascot 2014 - discussion thread Really looking forward to this race I have to say. The 2000 Guineas seems to be the key race in regards to form this season with a number of horses running blinders since so perhaps it's time for War Command or Toormore to run a big race? I backed Toormore in the Guineas where he disappointed but he was last years Champion 2 year old and still beat Kingston Hill and The Great Gatsby who impressed in the Derbies since. Still has another level to find I think but turning 4L on Night of Thunder and Kingman may be too tough.
  18. Re: epsom derby I think Orchestra is a really interesting contender. Although Romsdal ran him very close and didn't get a clean run at Chester, Orchestra really couldn't have traveled better and quickened well while the former seemed to be pushing near his limits. He won't mind a bit of cut in the ground and is proven over the distance. Will be interesting to see who Ryan Moore picks out of the remaining O'Brien horses but I really think Orchestra has some potential.

    Re: Scoop 6 Who's still in? Barkston Ash ends hope of winning the win fund for me but at least he placed.
  20. Re: World Cup 2014 > Outright Betting Portugal and Chile spring to mind. Both teams are solid and have two of the best if not the best players in their positions. Ronaldo and Vidal will be a handful.
  21. Re: Europa League Final > Sevilla v Benfica > Wednesday May 14th Sevilla had some great chances but Benfica really bottled it I thought. Enzo Perez was a big miss in midfield as Benfica lacked a bit of that composure particularly in the first half and Gaitan was surprisingly shakey on the ball. Andre Gomes again did well in the first half but is very raw and we saw him dwell on the ball and make poor decisions when fatigue set in. Benfica weren't at their best but they had the chances to finish Sevilla off and were perhaps unlucky the referee didn't allow Cardozo to retake his penalt
  22. Re: Europa League 2013/14 outright Made a shortlist of Valencia, Sevilla and Benfica in February and all three reached the semi finals but I decided to go with Benfica of course. :wall Enjoyed the tournament though and well done to anyone who picked out any winners. :ok
  23. Re: Europa League Semi-Finals > Thursday May 1st Enzo available as expected. Would have been ridiculous if he was banned for the incident with Chiellini and I don't know why Juve even bothered lodging a complaint. What are your thoughts regarding the team line up? Fejsa is out but Gaitan and amazingly Salvio are available after the latter broke his arm just two weeks ago. My guess is that Salvio will only be used if Benfica are behind and need a goal because even with his arm protected like Drogba's at the world cup there's some risk involved. Do you think Almeida should be brought
  24. Re: Europa League Semi-Finals > Thursday May 1st Benfica rested pretty much their whole team at the weekend and I read earlier in the week that Gaitan and Fejsa will be available for the second leg which is a huge boost for the away side. Despite making so many changes for the cup semi final away at Porto and going down to 10 men after 30 minutes they still managed to hold on and beat Porto in penalties which just shows the confidence they have in themselves. That's twice Benfica have beaten Porto with 10 men most of the game in the last few weeks and despite Jackson missing several good
  25. Re: FC Bayern München v Real Madrid > Tuesday April 29th I don't think it's a coincidence that Bayern's only midfielder who looks completely comfortable with Pep's style Thiago is Spanish. Martinez is also Spanish but he was brought up playing the Basque style of play and when he was linked to Barca under Pep they wanted to play him as a centre half. These Germans have been brought up playing a different type of football and Pep will need time to make his Bayern side truly effective and may need to look at La Liga for players if they are to return to the top of European football.
