Weekend Timings


After a busy summer of horseracing and sport I’ve just returned from my week’s holiday in time for a big weekend of action as we gear up towards the core area of this website – The Jumps Season. I do hope that I’ve not missed any news regarding the England football team or the Willie Mullins-Gigginstown relationship whilst I was away.

Just a quickie update to give you timings for the next few days on what’s being uploaded with the Ryder Cup, Arc de Triomphe and the World Grand Prix darts taking centre stage.

I will upload the Ryder Cup preview on Thursday afternoon and, once the pairings are known for the Friday foursomes and fourballs matches, I will then crack on with those previews and upload them as soon as possible afterwards. Ditto for Saturday’s foursomes and fourballs after they have been announced and then again for the singles on Sunday. Europe have the honour for all matches being the visitors so will tee off first and then USA will tee off second and win.

Mike Henderson’s outright preview of the World Grand Prix Darts (the double-in double out one in Dublin) which starts on Sunday and will also be uploaded on Thursday along with his first round preview, with the second round preview being uploaded on Tuesday as he goes in search of providing us with a ninth winning tournament out of twelve.The Arc de Triomphe card (from Chantilly this season and probably next by the sound of it) will be uploaded on Saturday evening. With La Cressionneire out of the race, we have a nice bit of value about my ante-post recommendation from 15 days ago.

As usual Ross Miles will be back to cover the NFL and he was 2-2 with his Week 3 selections last weekend which is more than can be said for my abysmal Premiership Picks last week but I’ll be back for another crack.

I'll be back for a proper length blog when the weekend is done and dusted.
