Sport Update


A sporting rather than horseracing theme to today’s short blog though a reminder that I have taken an early look at the Betfair Hurdle in this Wednesday lunchtime’s Big Race Focus column where I have a 16/1 each-way fancy. I hope you took an early view on Bristol De Mai last week as with Annacotty the week before.

Ross Miles went out with a big bang to his weekly NFL analysis with five of his six suggested bets on the Superbowl coming up trumps including Von Miller to be named Most Valuable Player at 22/1. Not even the lure of Beyonce shaking her stuff could keep me up past midnight however so it was a pleasant surprise to look at my account in the morning. My many thanks to him for his weekly previews. I’m no NFL expert but am told by people who are that it was weird season form-wise and although Ross had his highs and lows, it’s fair to say that when he hit, he bloody well hit.

Mike Henderson will be continuing with his weekly Premier League Darts coverage on Thursday (six winning tournaments out of eight that he has covered for us) but the next major sporting event we’ll be covering is T20 Cricket World Cup starting in a month’s time in India which I’m looking forward to. The first of 12 golf events I will be covering this season is the WGC Cadillac Championship at Doral which starts on March 3rd so we’re quiet in the Sport section up to then. I do think that Phil Mickelson is a good bet for a Top 10 at Pebble Beach this week though at a top price 9/4.

Matt from Football Elite’s monthly selections are going well and I hope you took his advice on Leicester for a Top 4 place back on December 8th when they were 9/2 (now best-priced 1/12), or indeed the 3/1 advised about Spurs for Top 4 finish on at 3/1 on October 27th. They are now best priced 1/5.
