    • Excuse my ignorance Colin but what exactly is the top rated player? Is it the player voted the best of the tournament in a kind of footy man of the match thing or simply the winner? I’ve been dabbling with your golf advice on Betfair and don’t see a top rated market. Clearly I have no clue about golf or golf betting which is half the fun for me!

        Top rated player is top of my ratings and i have never recorded them before and i may drop it and stick to my original format of bets which have proved successful over 4 years so i have 7 days to decide.

    • I am going to have a go at The China Open this week. Last week we did not place with our three runners. Joost Luiten had every chance to push on after rounds two and three but did not step forward and finished ninth.
      This week I like the enigma that is Thorbern Oleson 1 point each way at 33/1 and David Lipsky 1/2 point each way at 80/1. Both good players on their day if somewhat inconsistent.
      Good luck.

        You have a good chance with Thorbern Oleson he is a fav of mine to go to the top but for whatever reason not doing well this season,to many Chinese and Asian players who i know nothing about and it would not surprise me if one of them won,so for me not worth the risk in this tournament.

    Best free resource out there is probably Racing Post – as an example

    https://www.racingpost.com/profile/horse/923731/buskin-river/form

    Free would give you headline races and results and comments, to get “analysis” or to view specific races, you’d need to pay for – but I often look back 5-6 years for Chaser form as an example and someone asked me not long ago about a horse who ran in the 1980’s and its complete form analysis was on there.

  • Yarmouth Ratings
    1. Luchador, Carrie’s Vision
    2. Solesmes
    Ratings Bets 1pt Win Luchador, .5pt Rev Exacta Luchador and Carries Vision. 1/6th Combo Extrifecta the three.
    It was a relatively good race that Luchador contested fto and she was a bit unlucky missing the break and then getting chopped off on the bend. She was running on late and deserves to be favourite as the winner is reckoned to be ok and the second has subsequently won. However Mr Haggas has a very good record at Yarmouth although his 2yos to date have been needing the run and his record with debuts in April is not great. As Solesmes has also had a run and Mick Shannon’s are going well he must also enter into calculations. I don’t have a picture of him from Windsor but don’t think he is a good enough model to take this. My recollection is that she was very fit but small.
    It is worth keeping an eye on both Amy Murphy and George Scott’s runners to see if they are well prepared and ready as they are both trainers who have shown capability of getting debutants in good order fto.
    Windsor review to follow.

    • Gypsy Spirit Review
      A tough race to sort out in retrospect. When Karalini first arrived in the pre-parade I thought she was a certain winner. A size bigger than anything else and looking very fit; unfortunately she then proceeded to get very upset during the saddling procedure and by the time she came out of the box had sweated up very badly. This was compounded by her being keen early in the race and Charles Bishop deciding to drop her in behind and switch right across the field. She ended up just doing too much and will probably go off a better price nto because of it.
      The winner was probably joint smallest with Blasim and though looking fit did not really make much appeal as likely to be able to cope with Karalini, Mayfair Madame of Nina Petrvna who were all ok types. Swiss Chime only a tad bigger than Gypsy Spirit but a deep chest in proportion to her frame, she looked a lot woollier than the picture suggests and for me was fairly easy to leave out. It was a match between Nina Petrovna and Mayfair Madame with MM appealing as just the fitter. I was pleased that the ratings duc this one out as she was relativelu unconsidered at 12/1.
      It was perhaps the pace of the race that did for the better ones with Gypsy Spirit fortunate to inherit a win by dint of Gregorian’s stamina enableing her to simply keep trundling from a tardy start and pick up the lead contesters as they all faded in the last furlong. Still credit to Tom Clover for getting her fit and Josephine Gordon for keeping pushing when she was out paced early on.
      Gypsy Spirit – Small and limited but fit 65
      Mayfair Madame – Unlucky not to win as she contested early pace and stayed on well. 70
      Karalini – Good looking girl, too stirred up to give her best. 73
      Swiss Chime – Small but well made, not ready improve and Hannon’s will no doubt find a race. 68
      Nina Petrovna – Din’t look fit enough for debut to contest the win. 70
      Arishka – Small and plain. Trundled on. 65
      Blasim – Small and limited by that. Ordinary 62
      Merarani – Tiny 50
      The Greyvtrain – Probably ran its chances into the ground going too fast early. Plain type but not without a chance of nicking an early weak race. 60

  • Football – In the Champions League this week you would have to go with a Liverpool home win at 4/7, providing that the pitch is not too dry! Real Madrid and Bayern Munich like to score goals and so over 2.5 goals at 4/7 and over 3.5 goals 6/4. Not much value I know but I will be backing Liverpool for a decent bet.

    • I think you are right on Liverpool, for a better price but with more risk i took 5/4 on HT/FT
      Liverpool start quickly and I hope this is enough to get this over the line.
      I don’t rate Italians teams too highly apart from Juve in spite of Roma’s heroics last time so.
      I think Liverpool will blast them

      • Yes, they are the same price -1 on the handicap.

        I am working with my South American football expert (Peter) on the altitude angle. We won our first bet on Sunday and are off to the Peruvian second division on Friday for a match.
