Sport Updates


I am at the Sky Bet Cheltenham Preview Evening at Towcester Racecourse tonight followed by another preview night at Bristol tomorrow and will include anything of note in the Cheltenham Ante Post copy which goes daily for the next 12 days from 7.00 p.m. tonight. I will be covering the Imperial Cup in Big Race Focus on Wednesday.

A fourth profitable week on golf on the spin following the WGC-Cadillac Championship which was won by Adam Scott last night in a thrilling final round where McIlroy blew a three shot lead. Although we ended up the tournament in front I was left with a feeling of what might have been however as, although Danny Willett tied McIlroy for Top GB & Ire after being advised at 12/1 before the start of the event, he plonked his ball in the drink at the last hole. In addition, one of my three outright selections, Bubba Watson, was only beaten by a single stroke (stakes returned if going with BoyleSports as suggested) and my final round advice of Adam Scott at 2/1+ without Rory would have been much sweeter had I been braver and gone outright e/w at 13/2. Still, a profit is a profit and the next event I will be covering is the WGC Dell Match Play which commences on March 23rd.

The UK Open Darts was also a profitable week. In fact, this was Mike Henderson’s seventh profitable tournament out of nine that he has covered for us. Five of his nine bets won including his outright selection of Michael van Gerwen at 13/8 having argued that he should be odds-on for every tournament that he enters on his form over the last six months. Mike is also in good position with his Premier League pre-tournament selections as his 8/11 about MVG winning the regular season is now 2/9, his 15/8 about the same player recording most tournament 180s is now 5/6 (he currently leads on 22 by one from Chisnall and Taylor) and he also suggested Robert Thornton at 5/4 to finish bottom and he is 2 points adrift of the field (though with an extra game to play).

Paul Smith has already covered the outright betting market for us for the T20 Cricket World Cup which starts later this week and will back soon with his Top Batsman/Bowler and Specials markets. He will be also covering every game when the ‘big eight’ enter the competition.
