5th August 2015
This weekend sees the start of the Domestic English football season and before a ball is kicked Mourinho and Wenger are trading blows and insults.
I do think the Premier League will be between the two London Giants with the two Manchester sides filling the other two Champions League spots. Mind you it doesn't take the brains of a Winston Churchill to figure that out.
One thing that does amaze me about football betting is the amount of punters who place bets on who is going to win each individual division. I mean why would any body part with their hard earned in August and not get a penny back until May even if they did forecast a winning bet.
Its been a super July for Betting Opportunity with over a 100 points profit on the month but what you really need to take note of is the return on investment at just under 80% which means high profits and low stakes.
Also Fold4Gold pitched in with a 200/1 plus double on the Friday at Goodwood and if the treble had been landed members would have racked up over 1,600 points on one day.
One of the horses in the double was So Beloved advised at 18/1 and that was another winner for my eye-catchers.
Last weeks Howies Hottie was Nancy from Nairobi and she ran a cracker to finish 2nd at big odds.
This week I'm going up to Newcastle for the 6.20 which is a 6 furlong handicap. The tip is one of my old eye-catchers Llewellyn who is a better horse on grass than on the artificial surfaces apart from the fibresand.
He is well handicapped and although better at further Newcastle is a stiff track. Any rain would be a bonus but at the moment it's riding on the softer side of good which should be ok.
My Amigo trainer Ann Duffield - He just ran out of petrol close home and could be suited to a return to shorter.
So Beloved trainer D.O'Meara - A very easy winner of a big Goodwood handicap and he could be raised in class.
Montalcino trainer B.Meehan - Noted staying on over 7 furlongs and the mile could be her best trip.
Rivellino trainer K.Burke - Ran a corker in the Stewards Cup when drawn on the wrong side and seems to be back to his best.
Fox Trotter trainer B.Meehan - Ran a super race last week after a lay off and can only improve.
Ballesteros trainer R.Fahey - Just beaten in a photo last week the very well handicapped gelding should have no trouble winning soon especially when the muds flying.
Back next Wednesday have a good week and be lucky.
