Tanya's Blog - 17th November 2011
India v West Indies has been totally addictive and I have been up since 3.30am watching it. Must try and get one of the T-shirts in support of Sachin Tendulkar – let’s try and get a century of centuries. And to think shortly on the screen comes the next wave of entertainment: South Africa v Australia. The Baggy Greens won’t want to buckle like they did in the last Test.
Next year when South Africa tour England, Graeme Smith must be one to get on to be top run scorer of the series. He opens and he has plenty of experience playing on our pitches.
I’m A Celebrity has also proved good viewing, at least we are going to see if men vote on these sort of programmes as Jessica-Jane provides the eye candy. She is 20-1 currently which suggests men don’t vote or their partners are preventing them ogling!
On to the NFL and why are the Green Bay Packers still odds-against to win the Superbowl? It has to be because of the frailty of the side if quarterback Aaron Rodgers was to get injured. But if they start getting leads early in their matches now they are bound to protect him by putting him on the bench to give the back-ups some much needed match practice. I love the New Orleans Saints; they are enigmatic, unpredictable and at times brilliant, but even they couldn’t beat the Packers at their most vulnerable in their first match of the season.
Sound the trumpets, put out the bunting - the 2012 Fixture list has finally been published which makes the next few days extremely busy.
I wait with interest for the 48 hour decs for the Betfair Chase later and the Fixed Brush Hurdle. I can’t believe the ground at Haydock is good, well I can, it is just the mild weather, but there is some rain due this evening and tomorrow but not sufficient to affect the ground too much.
On to today and DALDINI ran a blinder at Haydock last time, battling on gamely against all odds. He has shown more consistency of late and deserves a win. He can be found in Market Rasen’s 2.20.
Huge disappointment in another small field novice chase this time worth £6,000. Research should be done to prevent this happening, money would be saved and levy created if these were removed or slotted in where it would attract more runners.
Sarah Humphrey has had three winners from her last three runners
Victor Dartnall has had three winners from his last six runners
Nicky Henderson has had six winners from his last 16 Market Rasen runners
A P McCoy has had six winners from his last 11 rides
Wincanton’s 1.40 and 2.10 have been dominated by the first two in the betting
The favourite has won 9 of the last 10 runnings of Wincanton’s 3.30
Donald McCain has won Market Rasen’s 1.50 twice from three runners
