DAQMAN Mon: Doncaster NAP

Posted on 17/5/2013 at 00:53 - 0 Comments - Post Comment - Link

DAQMAN PUTS ON THE STYLE IN PARIS: Daqman named the French 2,000 Guineas winner, Style Vendome (WON 58-10), but then saw the rest of his Longchamp bets beaten in photo-finishes: Esoterique (2nd 2-1) by a neck in the French 1,000, and Place In My Heart (3rd 12-1) by a head and a neck in the Saint-Georges sprint, run in very fast time.

THE DERBY PICTURE THROUGH THE TELESCOPE: Today Daqman puts the Derby scene under the microscope ? or should that be through the telescope ? and assesses each contender. His bets for today are at the foot of the column.

Ballydoyle has won the battles but lost the war. That?s my view of their clean sweep of Derby trials with Battle Of Marengo, Ruler Of The World, Magician, Nevis and, yesterday, Battle Of Marengo again.

We?re in the final week now of trying to find an Epsom hero, and Thursday?s Dante may yet contain the winner, or at least something to challenge Dawn Approach, with Greatwood (Cumani) and Indian Chief (O?Brien) now taking on Telescope (Stoute).

But York isn?t an O?Brien backyard: he?s won the race, of course, but ? with the exception of Cape Blanco, who went on to win the Irish Derby ? his Dante colts have not been memorable.

Unless you have some personal reason to disagree (like your wallet got fat on them that day), Saratoga Springs, Septimus and Black Bear Island were second rate at best, ?nearly? horses in the Classic scheme of things.

The O?Brien flock are largely Galileos and the way it looks he will be sending out a half-dozen hopefuls against Dawn Approach: he did, in fact, saddle six against Sea The Stars, exactly 50% of the field.

His procession was headed by Fame And Glory (second), Masterofthehorse (third) and Rip Van Winkle (fourth), with Golden Sword, Age Of Aquarius and that Dante winner, Black Bear Island, 10 of 12.

The four in at the finish earned almost £500,000 that day, so Ballydoyle?s Derby gourmandising has its immediate and tasty rewards as well as its stud-book prowess.

And two of the four proved themselves big time afterwards: Fame And Glory went on to win the Irish Derby and Rip Van Winkle the Sussex Stakes.

Indian Chief is not a Galileo but a Montjeu and related more to milers than middle distance, with the dam having dropped nothing of note so far, but some his sons tend to take after Montjeu (temperament and all). His best are the best.

Indian Chief was confidently ridden to win at Leopardstown and you could say that the runner-up franked the form when he went on to score at Tipperary.

But the handicapper would no doubt disagree: that runner-up, Dubai Deer, was building on only an 82 rating, and at Tipperary was beating two colts of seemingly little consequence (trained by Aidan O?Brien!)

Greatwood missed the Nevis trial at Lingfield when odds-on to beat the subsequent Ballydoyle winner, and now has to meet his Highclere buddy, Telescope at York.

Greatwood, too, is not a Galileo, but his dam was one, and she was closely related to that Dante second and Irish Derby winner Fame And Glory.

Greatwood was closing down Windhoek with every stride at the business end of a 1m 2f Newmarket conditions race in April, with Ghurair third.

This could be Classic form or nearly so since, last October, Ghurair had finished a head in front of Havana Gold, who was threeparts-of-a-length fifth in yesterday?s French 2,000 Guineas from a difficult middle draw.

It makes Toronado?s defeat in the Newmarket Classic all the harder to understand, since he slammed Havana Gold four lengths in the Craven. Or are we back to the same affirmation: the Newmarket winner, Dawn Approach, is just way, way ahead of them all?

Telescope is the ?one most likely to? of the York contenders on Thursday. His trainer, Sir Michael Stoute, has won the Dante five times, of which Shahrastani (1986) became the most famous, as the colt that beat Dancing Brave at Epsom.

Stoute?s Dante winners Alnasr Alwasheek (1992, finished 11th at Epsom) and Dilshaan (2001, seventh) were flops in the Derby.

But Carlton House (2011) was third to Pour Moi, Tartan Bearer (2008) was second to New Approach. And, yeh, in 2004 North Light won it.

Telescope, yet another good looking son of Galileo out of a mare by French champion three-year-old Darshaan, had two quick educational races last September.

He?s been working impressively on the Newmarket gallops, according to my man in the long grass, and is likely to start a short price on Thursday.

Battle Of Marengo is unbeaten in his last five starts, his Ballysax success boosted in the Sandown Classic Trial by Sugar Boy, runner-up at Leopardstown.

But, back at Leopardstown yesterday for the Derby Trial, and backed off the boards ? he was 2-13 at the ?off? ? Battle Of Marengo did indeed have to battle, winning in workmanlike manner.

I can?t crab his victory too much, since I was on the runner-up Loch German, who had been working well from a stable (Bolger?s) which has had an excellent Spring.

Maybe ?Marengo? is a Fame And Glory or a Leger winner. I prefer him to Ruler Of The World, but much preferred Magician in his paces.

Ruler Of The World I said before he won the Chester Vase that Ruler Of The World was not for me. Yes, he bolted up in the end but there was nothing else in the race with any quality or turn of foot and I thought Ladbrokes? man was spot on immediately afterwards to go half a dozen points bigger for the Epsom Derby than anyone else at 14-1.

It was very hard to imagine Ruler Of The World beating Dawn Approach on June 1. Ryan Moore said when he dismounted that Ruler Of The World ?is a good horse.?

But he?d just beaten a 93-rated animal and Dawn Approach was 124 going into the Guineas. We?re talking two stone difference! Then some.

Of course, that didn?t stop the Ballydoyle lemmings latching on to him, though they must have felt a flutter near their wallets when the same stable?s Magician won the Dee Stakes just as easily.

Magician beat the 99-rated Contributer but can expect only around 105 for his pains, which ties in with the 89-rated third in the race, Glacial Age.

I liked Magician?s action most of all the Ballydoyle trialists but it will be fascinating to see the jockey choice for Epsom. Maybe Mars will turn will out again and do something in the Dante.

Mars Running Battle Of Marengo twice this year raised my eyebrows. There would be no good reason to do so, if you already thought you had an Epsom winner.

Mars, on the other hand, came into the 2,000 Guineas from just one run in an AW maiden as a juvenile and could well improve significantly on his Newmarket sixth to Dawn Approach.

Festive Cheer One trial that O?Brien didn?t win was yesterday?sPrix Hocquart, for which his Festive Cheer started 14-5 joint favourite and was beaten two short-heads.

The Montjeu colt was another that came to his second season with limited experience, having won on the Dundalk polytrack, showing ?immediate acceleration?, according to the Racing Post racereader, and ?travelled like a dreamm? in the words of jockey Joseph O?Brien.

The Hocquart winner, Tableaux, had won a prestigious trial in April, the Prix Noailles, but also in a blanket finish (half a length and short-neck), suggesting that here we have half a dozen colts ?all of a heap.? Not Classic material.

VERDICT: All credit to Aidan O?Brien for sweeping up the large part of the trials but I?m looking through the big end of the telescope at the Ballydoyle Derby contingent.

For me, they?ve grown smaller in stature, not bigger, as a set of soft and largely unimpressive trials have progressed.

Of course, whichever is their number one would be a threat, but, unless the real Telescope is worth paying to view the right way round on this Epsom promenade, the Derby field looks all at sea against Dawn Approach.

Meanwhile, whatever beats Intello will win the French Derby. He came with a right old rattle from an impossible draw behind my winning bet, Style Vendome, in the French 2,000 yesterday.

On the fillies? front, Flotilla has got to be of a very high standard to have won Breeders Cup Juvenile at Santa Anita and come straight back to win yesterday?s Longchamp 1,000.

I thought I had it in the bag when Esoterique took over but Flotilla ate her up close home, the pair four lengths clear.

Incidentally, that law unto themselves with milers, Hughes, Hannon and Hannon must have been delighted with the late work of the fourth filly home, Zurigha, another to come from an impossible position (stall 17).

But whatever did happen to Toronado? The firm of Hughes, Hannon and Hannon must surely show him to the public on a racecourse again soon. Dawn Approach can?t be that good. Or can he?

BET 5.8pts win NAFA (1.50 Wolverhampton)
BET 8.5pts win (nap) DEFENDANT (2.10 Doncaster)
BET 3.5pts win on each SHESASTAR and ZACYNTHUS (4.25 Doncaster)
BET 2.3pts win GUEST OF HONOUR and 2.3pts (stakes saver) MONTIRIDGE (7.20 Windsor)

DAQMAN TARGETS: Stakes are to win 20 points. One winner covers all other bets.

Cricket: Swann Returns To Boost England!

Posted on 15/5/2013 at 01:03 - 0 Comments - Post Comment - Link

England will be very happy to hear that Graeme Swann & Tim Bresnan have been passed fit for the first test against New Zealand.

As a result England are 1/2 red hot favourites to deliver victory in the first test, with New Zealand 8/1 outsiders. England can be backed at 5/4 to win the series 2-0.

"On paper England are very strong favourites but they underestimated New Zealand earlier this year and nothing is certain in cricket," said William Hill spokesman Rupert Adams.

First Test: 1/2 England, 8/1 New Zealand, 9/4 Draw

Series Betting: 2/7 England, 10/1 New Zealand, 7/2 Drawn

Series Correct Score:

Priority Prices Prove Popular With William Hill Punters!

Posted on 3/5/2013 at 00:16 - 0 Comments - Post Comment - Link

On the 15th of September 2012, William Hill launched their new initiative - Priority Prices and it is already proving to a massive success with punters around the country.

By subscribing to online or text notifications, punters are made aware of specially enhanced William Hill prices on all the big events, for which they guarantee at least 5,000 bets at that price. All bets are subject to a maximum stake to ensure that the offers are available to as many people as possible.

The first price enhanced for the Priority Prices was for Camelot to win the St Leger. Offered nationwide at around 2/5, William Hill subscribers were treated to a market leading Even money - a price that attracted well over 7,000 bets in the space of 20 minutes.

Super Sunday saw the first double Priority Price offer as both Manchester sides were enhanced to win, with punters especially benefitting from United (who were enhanced from 15/8 to 3/1) as they defeated Liverpool at Anfield.

The following week saw an amazing comeback by Europe's Ryder Cup team and 5,000 William Hill customers had a double celebration, having backed Europe at our Priority Price of 5/2 (enhanced from 15/8)

Our second double Priority Price offer of the new season saw Arsenal (enhanced from 5/4 to 7/4) hosting Chelsea at the Emirates and Man Utd (Evens from 3/5) tackling Tottenham at Old Trafford.

For the North London Derby on the first weekend of March we offered 4/1 that the in-form Gareth Bale would score in a Tottenham victory over rivals Arsenal. The Welshman broke Gunners fans hearts but didn't let Priority Price punters down as they scooped up the 4/1 winnings  enhanced from 9/4.

"Our Priority Prices are not just enhanced prices, but are market leading prices by some way," said William Hill spokesman Joe Crilly. "Our punters are getting terrific value for all the best events and everyone is getting a slice as well."

Naturally, each Priority Price has a limited availability, so you'll need to get on it fast.  But you can register for our Priority Prices alerts, and be the first to know when each one is released.  To get involved, simply like us on Facebook("williamhillsports") or follow us on Twitter (@priorityprices) to ensure you never miss the chance to get a piece of the action.


Kate Miller, spokeswoman for William Hill, said: "This is a first for the betting industry where subscribed customers can gain advance notification on enhanced odds ahead of the rest of the gambling community. It's free to sign-up and we're committed to only offering industry-best odds. It's another weapon to add to any punters' armoury."

William Hill is only able to offer a limited number of Priority Prices for each event, but as part of this very special scheme, William Hill will be keeping its customers informed on Priority Prices release dates, number of bets available at that price, as well as regular updates on how many bet numbers remain available.

Priority Prices FAQs

What is priority pricing?

A Priority Price is an individual, singles only bet that will usually be a limited availability enhancement on our current market price at the time. We aim to run this promotion on the biggest events and on the markets you want to back.

Is it available on all selections?

No. A Priority Price stands alone. Occasionally more than one Priority Price will be available at the same time.

Is it available on all events?

Priority Prices will be made available on a variety of events, competitions and markets over the year.

Is it available on all betting markets?

A Priority Price is only available as stated in the adverts.

When does it happen?

The schedule for Priority Prices will be made available to subscribers to our alerts.

Do I get Priority Prices automatically?

No. You have to place the bet when it becomes available and before it runs out. That's why you should sign up to the various notification alerts so you don't miss out.

How long does it last for?

The length of time a Priority Price is available for will vary. We have a certain number of bets to lay at the priority price. How long they remain available depends on how quickly they are taken up.

Is it available through all WH channels (retail, site, telephone, mobile, text,)?

Yes. Priority Prices is available across all channels for a limited period only.

Can I have any amount at a priority price?

No. So that as many people as possible can take advantage of Priority Prices we will restrict every client to a maximum bet. We're trying to give everyone something, not give everything to some one.

Whats the effect on SP, EB, AP?

The Priority Price does not affect the Starting Price, Early Price or Board Prices of a selection and it not associated with our Best Odds Guaranteed offer.

Man City v West Ham ? Betting Odds & Tips

Posted on 1/5/2013 at 23:57 - 0 Comments - Post Comment - Link

Jaymes Monte previews Saturday?s Premier League lunchtime kick-off between Manchester City and West Ham, reviewing the betting odds and giving us his best tips.

Over 3.5 goals @ 5/4

A 10-minute lapse at White Hart Lane last weekend cost Manchester City all three points and allowed Manchester United the opportunity to claim the title on Monday at home to Aston Villa. It was the first time in five matches that City had not registered a win and looking further back they?ve now won eight of their last 10 in all competitions.

West Ham?s 2-0 win over Wigan last Saturday extended their unbeaten run to five matches, including draws at home to Manchester United and away to Liverpool, so they will arrive at the Etihad in a buoyant mood.

Andy Carroll hasn?t scored in his last two appearances, but has scored three in his last four and looks to now be playing somewhere near the level that earned him a big money move to Anfield just over two years ago.

Team News
This could be an opportunity for Roberto Mancini to give a number of his fringe players a run out in the starting XI. The likes of Scott Sinclair and Jack Rodwell have featured rarely since making big money moves to the Etihad and can expect to be involved a lot more regularly in the coming weeks.

David Silva, Maicon and James Milner have each all missed recent fixtures, but the latter is expected to be available for this one.

George McCartney and Daniel Potts remain long-term casualties for the Hammers, but James Tonkins has a chance of returning to the fold following a knock picked up in the game against Southampton earlier this month.

Head to Head
Manchester City are unbeaten in five matches against West Ham in a run that dates back to March 2009. While the game at Upton Park earlier this season ended in a goalless draw with Sam Allardyce?s men not managing a single shot on target throughout the 90 minutes.

Andy Carroll has a particularly good record against City, having scored more goals against the Citizens (4) than against any other Premier League opponent.

Carlos Tevez also enjoys City-West Ham games, scoring twice against his former club the last time that he was involved in this fixture at the Etihad.

Recommended Bets
On their home patch, where they continue to boast a hugely impressive record, City should be comfortable winners. But at odds of 1/4 in a game with little riding on the outcome there?s little to encourage us to side with the hosts to take all three points.

Instead, we should look to the goals markets. Meaningless end of season games tend to be a lot more open and expansive, with respective managers trialling new tactics, formations and personnel. Therefore, we?ll start with a bet on there being more than 3.5 goals at odds of 5/4.

Tevez?s recent form and his record against his former club mean that he is worthy of an odds-on price in the anytime scorer market, but the value lies elsewhere. Should Scott Sinclair be given a rare starting berth then he?s worth a few quid at 15/8, while the full backs are likely to be given more of an attacking licence in this fixture so Pablo Zabaleta (7/1) and AleksandrKolarov (5/2) are also worth having on side.

DONN McCLEAN: Here we go again

Posted on 29/4/2013 at 07:49 - 0 Comments - Post Comment - Link

Try as you might, it really is difficult to get away from Away We Go in this afternoon?s Bet365 Gold Cup at Sandown. And that is not just because you don?t want to be going against Willie Mullins during Punchestown week.

Away We Go ran a cracker to finish second in the Irish Grand National at Fairyhouse the last time we saw him at the start of the month. He travelled well through that race for Paul Townend, he jumped super, and he arrived there on the outside at the top of the home straight looking by far the most likely winner. His rider even allowed himself a peak behind to see if there were any dangers there.

As it happened, there weren?t, but there was one in front of him in shape of the teak-tough Liberty Counsel. He just couldn?t get past Dot Love?s mare, as she stuck her head out and battled all the way to the line. Even so, Willie Mullins? horse lost no caste in going down by just a half a length.

The Irish handicapper raised him 7lb for that run, which wasn?t harsh. However, because today?s race is an early-closing race, he gets to race off his old mark of 134, and that makes him by far the best-handicapped horse in the race. He would have been on or near your shortlist even on his new 7lb higher mark.

Significantly, he was having his first run over fences for Willie Mullins in the Irish National. There is lots of empirical evidence around to support the hypothesis that horses can improve significantly for joining the champion trainer?s ranks, and sure enough, despite looking fairly exposed over hurdles, the son of Stowaway improved from a mark of 105 over the smaller obstacles when he joined Mullins to a mark of 121 now.

He was rated 134 over fences when he arrived at Closutton, and he gets to race off that mark today. He has plenty of scope to progress further even than his new mark of 141.

The ground is obviously going to be a lot faster today than it was at Fairyhouse on Easter Monday, but he won his beginners? chase on good to firm ground at Tramore, and his only other chase win to date was on good ground at Wexford. The better ground today could even bring about further improvement.

You would ideally like to have Ruby Walsh on board, but you probably shouldn?t read too much into the fact that Ruby stays at Punchestown today. He said yesterday that he had to commit to Punchestown or Sandown early in the week and, with Annie Power an intended runner at the time in the mares? hurdle at Punchestown, and with the jockeys? championship still a possibility ? albeit a remote one now ? it is not at all surprising that he stays close to home.

Declan Lavery is a really good young rider, he is top value for his 5lb claim. That claim means that, actually, Away We Go will only have a total of 10st 6lb on his back, and that is ideal in a race in which six of the last eight winners and 13 of the last 16 carried less than 11st.

The track is obviously an unknown, simply because he has never raced there, but he goes well right-handed ? all five of his wins over jumps have been at right-handed tracks ? and he should be fine at Sandown.

The main worry is the possibility that this race comes up soon enough after a tough race in the Irish National. Four horses who completed the course in the Irish National have run since, and all four have run poorly. However, you have to think that Willie would not allow him travel if he wasn?t happy that he had recovered, and he has so many other elements in his favour, that the doubt about the race coming up too quickly is worth swallowing at current odds.

All that into the mix, and whatever else you are backing in the race, you really should keep Away We Go on side. He is well worth backing each-way at current odds of 8.6 or 8.8.

The other horse who might be worth backing at a much bigger price is Duke Of Lucca. Philip Hobbs? horse ran a cracker to finish third in the Racing Plus Chase at Kempton in February on the first occasion on which he encountered good ground since April 2012, and that run gives him a big chance. He was a little disappointing at Aintree last time, but he could never get into a rhythm there on that sharp left-handed track after making an early mistake, and he did stay on well up the home straight.

It is interesting that the trainer fits cheekpieces for the first time today. That should help Tom O?Brien in the early stages of the race. Also, the step up to three miles and five and a half furlongs means that they should be going a stride slower today, and that should help Duke Of Lucca find his rhythm. He had shaped in the Racing Plus Chase as if he wouldn?t mind a greater test of stamina.

Duke Of Lucca is a spring horse. All his best runs have been on good ground in the spring. As such, Hobbs avoided the deep winter ground with him, with the result that he comes into this race fresher than most. More than that, given that Hobbs has won this race twice in the last seven years, and has had six horses placed in the last 10, it is probable that the trainer has had this race in mind for Duke Of Lucca since the start of the season. The son of Milan goes well right-handed, and he looks over-priced at around 20.

Real Madrid can shade unheralded battle of the defences in Dortmund

Posted on 25/4/2013 at 00:12 - 0 Comments - Post Comment - Link

Real Madrid are in the Champions League semi finals for the second time in as many seasons and for the second consecutive year it’s German opposition who’ll be aiming to eliminate them – not good news when Los Merengues have won just once in 24 European trips to Germany. However only a spectacular last-five-minute disintegration from Malaga saved Borussia Dortmund’s skin in their quarter final second leg and Madrid can overcome defensive injuries to limit their hosts to under 1.5 goals at 6/10 with Coral.

Borussia Dortmund and Real Madrid meet in the second Champions League semi final of the week on Wednesday in a match that promises to be an edge-of-the-seat attacking cracker and as a result it’s defensive strength that could prove the key to progression in the tie. The prelude to this semi final in the heart of the Ruhr has been one of convergent fortunes when it comes to the availability of key defence-men.

Jose Mourinho has the headache of being without first-choice full backs Alvaro Arbeloa and Marcelo, necessitating a reshuffle that will see Sergio Ramos shunted to right back. Conversely Dortmund welcome back their captain Mats Hummels, an assured defender whose assurance on the ball serves to relieve pressure from his team-mates.

Surprisingly the Germans seem to fare better without Hummels in the starting line up, with Die Schwarzgelben yet to lose in the eight games they’ve played this term in which he didn’t start.

It’s Real who possess the stronger away defensive record, with the anomaly of their second leg defeat against Galatasaray the only away game in 11 since the turn of the year in which they’ve allowed more than a single goal. Dortmund have been more generous hosts of late, conceding four goals in their last three games.

That Galatasary blip aside Madrid’s form on the road is vastly improved of late with wins against Barcelona and Manchester United in their last six away outings and unsurprisingly Cristiano Ronaldo has been at the forefront of their raiding parties, with the magisterial Madeiran pouching 10 goals in that sequence. Ronaldo is 4/5 to score at anytime during the clash at Signal Iduna Park.
