Take this one for free - If you are not subscribed you won’t be getting the other four! ———— Not really understanding why RECOLLECT should be vying for favouritism. SIOUX FRONTIER should have a bit more to give, albeit it wasn’t much of a race he won and he will encounter different ground here. DESTROYER doesn’t have the best of win records, and KHARBETATION will need to improve for eye shields. Go with MOXY MARES under Silvestre De Sousa. She seemed to lose the race at the start last time, but we don’t expect a repeat of that!

And, while none of them stand out from this year, their was Kanepi, Diyas, Siegemund and Kontaveit in the past. That is enough for us to tick the ‘’been there and done it box’’, so the only question left is can she build on her last round effort and produce a good effort here. We believe the answer is yes, because the 23 year old reversed recent Roland Garros form with Ysaline Bonaventure. Her six week absence appears to have refreshed her appetite, and if anything with that match under the belt she should be even better today. Sorana Cirstea has home advantage, and she had an easy first round win against Buyukakcay. However, the Romanian is becoming increasingly frustrating, and her YTD od 11-16 suggests she’s the wrong odds here. And, then their is the fact she’s struggled at this tournament in the past, so she’s worth taking on in the h’cap!
We had some really nice priced winners yesterday, so hopeful we are going to come good again today ——— Pauline Parmentier won her match against Alexandra Dulgheru, or should we say her opponent lost the plot and the match. Whichever way you look at it, Parmentier simply had to stay consistent to advance. Afterall, her opponents game was beginning to go all haywire by the second set, and from then on it was a game of Hari Kari. Yafan Wang is not exactly the safest proposition on the planet, but the Chinese girl almost certainly has the game to beat Parmentier. While we can’t gauge much from her easy first round victory, it did at least give her a taste of the court. On her day Wang can beat much better players than the French girl. Proof of that is Riske, Suarez Navarro and Vondrousova at the Miami open. Even her fourth round match against Kerber went the distance! Take Wang!
Go with this for a FREE racing PREMIUM bet. We have a few at big odds today, so we want to offer something with a bit of juice to free followers —————ASTUTE BOY needed this distance on the flat, so he’s likely to need further over timber. Nevertheless, he’s receiving seven pounds from the three above him in the betting, and he was rated higher than any of these on the flat. COMPETITION was very modest on the flat, and he won a soft hurdle race over this CD last time out. To be fair the trainer can improve them, but this looks a better race. WEIGHTFORDAVE won on his third start for Dan Skelton. However, prior to that he hadn’t won in 28, so it will be interesting to see if he can go on from there. BIG TIME DANCE is more prolific (4/17) than the other two with penalties, but he will need to improve on what we have seen.
We have one football premium bet for today - and it’s free for everyone. If you want all our football Syndicate bets to the end of the year (31 december 2018), we are doing a special deal for €750. That covers 5.5 months, so a great deal comparing to €300 per month. PS - We would expect about 800-900 bets during that time - to get started email@example.com ——— If you stop and think about, a few teams playing in the Bulgarian league have set a decent benchmark in Europe. We are of course referring to last seasons league winner Ludogorets and CSKA Sofia, who to be fair pulled 13 points clear of todays host Levski. With that said, neither of those aforementioned sides were good enough to win at the Georgi Asparuhov, and if the league was settled on home form then Levski would have finished a one point second to Ludogorets. It’s also noticeable that the host conceded just three goals in 13 games here, and they were the only unbeaten home team in the Parva liga. Vaduz play their football in the Swiss league, albeit they are representing the small principality of Lichtenstein here. We should also point out that this club were relegated from the Super League at the end of the 16/17 campaign, and they could only finish fourth in last seasons second league. Vaduz won the reverse match 1-0, albeit that went against all the match stats. We could also add that with their season opening at the weekend, the visitors should be approaching maximum fitness. However, in our opinion Levski are simply better class, and playing at their fortress makes this a must bet. We are of the opinion that the hosts will win by more than a goal, and that’s what they need to advance.
Our main bets ware at this evenings Worcester. However, we do have one for the afternoon so that’s been elected the Free PREMIUM bet———We can understand why SURREY BLAZE is favourite, albeit odds of 5/4 are extremely short. WAROFINDEPENCE is just very average, and the same applies to SPIRITUAL MAN. HALLIGHAM might grab a place, but for the winner we want to give course specialist GLENN WOBBLY another chance. This fella is at his best giving weight to more moderate types, and dropping back in trip should suit him better than last time out.
Their is a lot of woman turning to tennis after giving birth, and Vera Zvonareva is one of those. In her heyday the Moscow born 33 year old was ranked at number two. she made the finals of the US open and Wimbledon, plus she won 12 tournaments and 13.5 million in prize money. As it stands, Vera starts the week ranked 136, and she comes into this following a first round exit at Wimbledon. Nevertheless, the Russian won three rounds of qualifying and she took more games off eventual champion Angelique Kerber than Serena Williams managed to in the final. All in all, Zvonareva can be happy with her form and according to official stats returning to clay is a good thing. Ekaterina Alexandrova made the final of last weeks ITF in Budapest, and the 23 year old sets a decent level on clay. However, unlike her opponent she’s never ranked higher than 69, and 16/16 on the year suggests she’s beatable. At these odds Vera!
We have seven WTA bets for today, here is one on the house ———The question here is past winner Viktorija Golubic, or the in form Antonio Lottner. In fact, Lottner actually beat the Swiss girl at this tournament last year, and she also leads head to heads 2-1. Lottner qualified for both Wimbledon, Mallorca and Hertogenbosch, and she claimer the scalps of decent players such has Sasnovich, Petkovic and Blinkova. The 21 year old also managed to beat Elise Mertens in the draw proper, and last year she made the quarters here. Golubic has shown bits of form, but for us she’s not at the same level has she was in 2016. In fact, last year she managed just 1/6 on clay, so despite home advantage she could be worth taking on!
Listing pitchers aren't really necessary here as the starters only go an inning or two in the All Star Game but also by the same token, it's highly unlikely that either starter is scratched as they could be during the regular season. Nevertheless, the starters are slated to be Max Scherzer for the NL and Chris Sale for the AL and despite playing in a National League Ballpark (Nationals Park), the American League will be the hosts and bat 2nd and the game will be played with American League rules, meaning the use of the DH. The reason for this relates to the short-lived and terrible experiment of awarding the winner of the league in this game home field advantage in the World Series, which was thankfully ended last season. But without dwelling too much on that minor detail, we believe the game has returned to what it was meant to be, an exhibition game. Of course that's not to say that neither side cares about winning as all players and coaches are highly competitive but the focus has returned to getting every player and pitcher into the game. Without going into too much detail about every single player on both rosters, what we can tell you is that the American League is the better hitting team by far, as they have 6 of the top 9 hitters in baseball as measured by wRC+. The AL also has the more right handed heavy lineup and roster which should benefit them in Nationals Park which is much more favoured toward them. By that same token, the Nationals start 4 left handed hitters in their starting 9 which should be at a disadvantage against one of the premier southpaws in the game, Chris Sale. Home field advantage is virtually nonexistent in an exhibition game such as this which is why the AL is favoured comfortably here. However, we believe there are too many unpredictable matchups late in the game and quite frankly, we're not too fond of some of the relievers selected to this game that will all likely make an appearance at some point. Home runs being hit in record numbers in recent years can't be ignored either as rumours swirl of a juiced ball. There is some rain in the forecast but aside from that slight concern, we're of the belief that this number is a half run too low!
Not much to get our teeth into today - Nevertheless, we have three and here is one for free ——— KAJAKI needs further than this, while SEA YOUMZAIN won’t find it easy from a mark of 85. MUTADAFFEQ is consistent, but we can’t have him has favourite. In fact, despite running a bit below par last time out, we believe Iain Jardine’s runner ATKINSON GRIMSHAW should fill that position. The four year old ran an excellent race at Ayr on his debut for the yard, and he gives the impression their is more to come. This is easier than the race he contested last time, and stepping up in trip ticks the right box.
We have five bets for day one in Gstaad and here in Bucharest. Since the Swiss tournament is starting early, we thought it a good idea to start with this match ——— Head to heads have the Columbian leading 3-1, and their only meeting on clay ended 6-1 6-0. To be fair that was five years back, albeit both players are at a similar level to then. The Dutch girl comes into this on the back of a QF at last weeks Contrexeville, she’s also a positive 26/21 on the year, and her record on clay suggests this is her favoured surface. However, Mariana Duque Marino shouldn’t be underestimated. Afterall, she’s a solid 29-17 YTD, and 27 of those wins came on clay (8 defeats). We should also add she’s 67.4% (281/136) on this surface down the years and she recently won an ITF in Hungary. We should also point out she beat Sevastova at this years French open, and their was another tournament win in Charlottesville. While Duque Marino struggled was defeated by Dalma Galfi in her most recent match in Budapest, maybe she just used that ITF to prep for here. In any case, she should do much better today and a match like this looks winnable.
