PREMIUM BETTING TIP - We have hit this one nice and big, here’s hoping we got it right! ——The concern with THE LADY LAWYER is she’s returning to the track mid season, that suggests she’s been slow coming to hand. BINT SOGHAAN made a perfectly reasonable return, but she will need to improve again. While that isn’t out of the question, we prefer Richard Hannon’s other runner POSTED. It’s true to say she’s a bit more exposed than the others, but she was thought good enough to race in a group three. Furthermore, she made a decent return, and a mark of 85 tells us she’s reached a good level.
PREMIUM WTA PICK - Nice 5-1 yesterday, including one we posted for free use. We are going with five bets today, and this is one we are racking up for free use — Petra Martic took a while to figure out both Anastasia Potapova and Jennifer Brady. In any case, both matches went the distance, and she spent a lot of time on court. We have watched Martic intensively, and our conclusion is the Croatian needs time to find her full stride. She’s been successfully getting through to the next round, it’s not ideal because uses a lot more energy than she should! Danielle Collins is super tough, and when she’s fully coiled she’s hard to stop. Collins will take a more direct approach, and it will be interesting to see how she handles her opponents backhand slice. Nevertheless, she’s got the game, and on this occasion we have some insurance with a set start!
PREMIUM RACING PICK - Not understanding why LADY DANCELOT is the favourite for this competitive race. Afterall, she’s got a big weight, and her best form is on easy ground. All four of DR DORO’s wins came at the minimum trip, and LETHAL ANGEL is a couple of pounds too high. WITH CAUTION showed her best form on grass, and she found the 7F too far at Chelmsford. Oisin Murphy is back in the saddle on the lightly raced scopey three year old, and her stable is in excellent form.
WTA BETTING PREVIW - We had some bad luck yesterday with Gasparyan, she had match point and was still a set up when being forced to retire. The good news was we bet Collins at big odds, and the American just about saved our day. We sent out six bets today, here is one of them for free use!————Petra Kvitova won this tournament twice, and her season 29/8 suggests she’s as good as ever. The 29 year old is clearly over her off court injuries, and her life time record on grass is 74%. Another stat in her favour is the 7-1 over Kristina Mladenovic, and all of those wins where completed in straight sets. We thought Petra looked really good against first round opponent Ons Jabeur, while Mladenovic struggled over the first two sets against Vitalia Diatchenko. In fact, the French girl needed 2:25 to get over the line! Petra wins most of her matches in straight sets, so taking the 2-0 is a no brainer!
RACING TIP - We took this one early, should be 5/4 in my mind! ——THE VOLLAN beat next time out winner JACKBEQUICK, and the rest where well beaten off. The way he put the race to bed suggests their is a lot more to come, and getting a first win is never a bad thing. According to official ratings he’s two pounds well in, and this type of track should suit the five year old. We are not overly convinced about CHAPMANSHYPE, and LOVATO comes 2nd more than he wins. BEACHBREAK will need to improve for his recent pipe opener, and he looks harshly treated!
PREMIUM WTA PICK - One a day for free, the other six reserved for subscribers! —————Petra Martic needs to smell the coffee, and we say that because she does have an habit of using three sets. With that said, Martic is one of the best players to watch on grass, and she’s got all the shots needed for this surface. The secret now for the Croatian is to keep matches short, and she should be able to do that against todays opponent Anastasia Potapova. The 18 year old Russian doesn’t have anything to lose here, and she’s certainly a player with a bright future. We could also mention she’s the former winner (2017) of the juniors at Wimbledon, albeit the players she beat have failed to shine since!
FREE PREMIUM RACING PICK ——— FRESH NEW DAWN won well enough at Huntingdon, but i’m still of the opinion he’s a hard ride. While Richard Johnson can be trusted to do the coaxing, this might not be the Olly Murphy’s runner track. DOVILS DATE is great at the right level. In fact, the grey won 13/57 races and that includes back to back. The way he won last time suggests the 10 year old is at the top of his game, and best of all he’s unpenalised. He’s a strong traveller, uncomplicated and wants to win, that’s 90% of the battle with racing!
PREMIUM WTA PICK - Day one ended 6-3 in our favour, and one push. Today we sent out 8 picks to subscribers, this is one of them we are racking up for free use. PS - Nothing we can do about sliding odds, these tips where sent out at 18:30 yesterday evening…………….. Many tennis coaches attached to the Pliskova family initially thought Kristyna was going to be better than her sister Karolina. However, that wasn’t meant to be, and her twin made went on to become number one while Kristyna peaked at 35. The 27 year old is currently ranked 94 and 21/19 on the year. She did recently beat her sister on the Birmingham grass, but in the next round Strycova sent her packing! 18 year old Kaja Juvan is the past winner of the junior doubles here. And, while her YTD 27/13 isn’t as good as last year (43/11), she’s been playing at an higher level. What we will say is Juvan will need to improve on her qualification efforts. Afterall she was given one of those matches and the other two went the distance. With all that said, Kristyna has a massive serve and she will like playing on these outside courts. Experience is one thing, and the other is 68.1% (64/30) on grass. In the not too distance past she’s beaten Vinci and Kuznetsova on grass, plus she’s the former winner of the juniors here!
PREMIUM WTA WIMBLEDON PICKS - Since it’s the opening day we are giving a 2nd one for free. Odds might have dropped a little, but you have to accept it’s paying members first! —— email@example.com —————— In Eastbourne, it was hard watching Daria Kasatkina lose to Andrea Petkovic. The likeable Russian couldn’t serve to save her life, and from 9 of the 17 games she lost it was on her own serve. On that occasion Dasha made nine double faults, and she only won 50% of her first serves. If any player needs a jolt it’s Ajla Tomljanovic. We say that because the Croatian has a really good game, but she’s fallen into the habit of losing matches she should be winning. Their is risk here, but the fact is Kasatkina doesn’t have the serve for this surface. If the 26 year old Tomljanovic can get ten aces past Monica Puig, she should be able to put a lot of pressure on her opponent!
PREMIUM WTA PICK - You still have a chance to join Paid Premium WTA picks for Wimbledon, we sent out ten for monday. To get on board firstname.lastname@example.org ————— Jelena Ostapenko is the former winner of the French open, but we firmly believe the recently turned 22 year old is at her best on grass. In fact, she’s won 2/3rds of her matches on this surface, and she gives the impression that she’s refinding her best form. We say that because it was no mean feat beating Konta (Birmingham) and Stephens (Eastbourne), and her recent retirement in Eastbourne was precautionary. Last year Jelena made the semi final of Wimbledon, and all her wins came in straight sets. Add to that she was a quarterfinalist in 2017, and she’s the former winner of the Wimbledon juniors. Suffice to say, the Latvian is proven on these courts. Su-Wei Hsieh is fantastically consistent, and she’s going to win many more matches. However, she shouldn’t be the fav here, and she will need Ostapenko to have an off-day to win!
PREMIUM RACING TIP for free - Not big odds, but looks a nice bet —————If you think back 10 days we bet FATEH at about three times the odds of his SP. Unfortunately, he was bought down when his stable companion fell. While it was too early in the race to make a bold statement, my impression was that he would have won that race by half the track. From what he was watching, he was jumping really well. The way he travelled that day was like a good one, and every reason to think we can recover those losses today!
PREMIUM FOOTBALL PICK - Join Premium if you are ready to take betting serious ———————Mariehamn where punted before last weeks loss to HJK (0-2), but we couldn’t understand why. In fact, that feeling was underlined during the match, because Peter Lundberg’s side never got going. Whichever way you look at it, the Green/White didn’t create anything worthwhile, and their was no obvious excuse. Honka are top of the league, and they have been more successful on the road than Mariehamn’s last opponent. In fact, one of the away wins was in HJK (0-1), while the other three came in KuPS (0-3), SJK (1-2) and Rovaniema (1-2). Interestingly enough Mariehamn won the reverse fixate 1-3, and they deserved the points. It’s just what has happened since directs us to the visitors being a good bet, and that’s especially the case with Vasa Vasara having a full team available! Watch spaniard Borjas Martin - he’s a great asset at this level!
