Overall it was a pretty good day at Longchamp for the Race Previews section with Goldream and Make Believe being offered as win preferences successful at industry SPs of 15/2 and 9/2 and it was a good start to the Big Race Focus feature with Flintshire suggested e/w at 33/1 two weeks earlier finishing runner-up for the second year running. I will be covering the Champion Stakes tomorrow in the next Big Race Focus attempting to snaffle up the early value.

In Guest Contributions, three of Ross Miles' four handicap spread bets came up trumps in Week 4 of the NFL last night making a 15 points profit on his suggested yankee following up his 91 points haul in Week 3. With regards to the tennis, despite going deep into their respective tournaments, neither Lopez or Cilic could lift the trophy but Carl Redden is back with a selection for ATP Tokyo this week.  

I'm looking forward to the Presidents Cup this week and have covered the event in Sport. Later in the week I will be reviewing another NH Season preview publication in the blog called The Final Flight - a newcomer to the horses to follow publication scene. If you want to take a look at their website it's called
