Did LSU pay for Patrick Peterson?

Posted: 31 Mar 2011 12:13 PM PDT

Did LSU pay for Patrick Peterson? After last years scandal-ridden off season in college football with agents running rampant, it seems as if the new hotness scandal goes by the name of Willie Lyles. Yahoo reported that he received $25,000 from Oregon weeks after a protege of his, Lache Seastrunk, signed with Oregon. What seemed [...]

The Grand National – Saturday Grade One Trends

Posted: 31 Mar 2011 06:54 AM PDT

There are six Grade One races that take place at the Aintree Grand National Meeting, two on each of the three days. Here we take a look at the dominant trends in those Grade One races on the final day of the meeting, the Saturday, which will prove a real aid to our winner finding. Remember, it's not just about the Grand National betting offers.

The Saturday card provides us with back-to-back Grade One action before the Grand National itself. The John Smith's Maghull Novices' Chase comes first and there are some dominant and strong trends which are prevalent in the majority of the winners.

It pays to concentrate on those which contested the Arkle Trophy, with only one of the last 16 winners not having taken part in that race; with the last 13 winners having been in the first three in the betting the race has proved a favourable one for punters. If you are looking for a trainer to follow in the race then Paul Nicholls is your man, since 1999 he has saddled 5 winners and 5 seconds in the event. One group to avoid though are any Irish contenders they have not been successful in this race for 22 years.

If you want to avoid the Irish challenge in the Maghull Novices' Chase then you don't want to do that in the second Grade One event on the Saturday, the John Smith's Aintree Hurdle. The Irish challenge has been successful in ten of the last 17 renewals of this race, especially with horses that have bypassed Cheltenham and been specifically targeted at this race. Those looking at the Grand National latest odds may want to bear this tip in mind as well.

However, there has been no outright winning favourite since 1999 so that has made life a bit tougher for punters and generally it pays to oppose Nicky Henderson's runners in the race where he is 0/14.

The final point to make about this race is that previous runnings of the race have been a very good guide, and repeat winners are frequent.
The John Smith's Aintree Hurdle is the final Grade One event of the Grand National Meeting at Aintree, but provides a fitting prelude to the Grand National itself.

Why watch England v Ghana when you could be enjoying Armchair Anal?

Scrolling ad FAIL! It’s safe to say that the global economic downturn has made the FA a bit less picky about where their sponsorship money comes from. Take these advertising whore-dings at Wembley for the England v Ghana match, for instance. Spotted on Pies

Shakira banned from Real Madrid’s playlist for fraternising with Barcelona

Pique of the pops Real Madrid have banned Shakira’s songs from being played in the Santiago Bernabeu after the Colombian pop star blatantly flaunted her relationship with Barcelona defender Gerard Pique. We all knew that the couple had hooked-up, but at least they kept their business behind closed doors. Now the brazen hussy has started [...]

Relegation-threatened Crystal Palace fans turn on cheerleaders

Posted: 31 Mar 2011 01:39 AM PDT

Scapegoats Crystal Palace fans believe they have found the culprits for their team’s relegation form. But it’s not the players or coaching staff. Some Eagles supporters have turned on the club’s cheerleading troupe and have blamed their ‘sexy routines’ for leaving the club hovering above the drop-zone. Palace fan Gareth Pollock said: “They are just [...]

Video: Germany squad test drive the Mercedes SLK

Mein auto Can you imagine the England squad doing this? For starters, given the current sponsorship arrangements, Jack Wilshere and co. would be bombing around in Vauxhall Astras. This perhaps won’t hold quite the same appeal for a group of millionaires as the new Mercedes. Secondly, forget your ABS, it would be Sir Alex Ferguson [...]

International frenzy turns autograph frenzy Talk about showing the opposition too much respect! And this was just a non-playing member of the squad. Costa Rica’s players queued up to get Lionel Messi’s autograph after playing out a 0-0 draw with Argentina. Messi picked up an injury in the warm-up and didn’t feature – but that [...]
