Horse Racing Statistics For Saturday

Knowledge is power when betting on horses.

Dave Renham’s RacingTrends is a service that provides is members with a wealth of statistical horse racing information each day.

It is NOT a racing tipping service.

More so a stat provision service cutting out hours of tedious study for it’s clients and providing a wealth of useful information on a plate to them.

Clients tend to be reasonably clued up punters who appreciate both the power of stats and research and the fact that it is very boring and tedious to compile such stats each day. Stats to hand they can focus on the more interesting aspect of race assessment to find value bets or lays of their own.

Dave produces separate messages for Flat and National Hunt Racing.

Copied below for you is todays Flat Racing message.

7/2 For Blackburn’s Under Fire Trio To Leave Club

After the humiliating apology issued to Steve Kean and Morten Gamst Pedersen by Blackburn global advisor, Shebby Singh, William Hill are offering 7/2 that all three have left their positions by the end of the Championship season.

“It is no secret that Steve Kean is walking a tightrope after relegation last season but Shebby Singh has really turned the heat up on the manager now,” said Hill’s spokesman Joe Crilly. “His ill-advised comments about fans’ favourite, Morten Gamst Pedersen, however, have put Singh’s own position under threat.”

Blackburn are 10/1 joint fifth favourites to win the Championship behind favourites Bolton at 6/1 and Leicester at 7/1.

English Championship winner: 6/1 Bolton; 7/1 Leicester; 9/1 Leeds; 9/1 Wolves; 10/1 Blackburn; 10/1 Cardiff; 11/1 BAR

English Championship promotion: 7/4 Leicester; 2/1 Bolton; 5/2 Wolves; 3/1 Leeds; 4/1 Blackburn; 4/1 Cardiff; 4/1 Nottingham Forest; 5/1 BAR

Spain 20/1 To Win Next Two Tournaments At Least

Spain became double European Champions and all eyes will turn to the World Cup in Brazil. William Hill make Spain 2/7 to win their qualifying group and 6/4 to do so without losing a game. Once they touch down in Brazil, the Spaniards are 11/2 joint second favourites to win. Spain have now won three major tournaments in a row and are 20/1 to carry on winning tournaments until at least the World Cup in 2018.

As the match kicked off, the focus was on Mario Balotelli, but as the game finished, he had been overshadowed by Fernando Torres who came on and scored one and set one up. Hills offer 1/2 that Torres scores more goals than Balotelli in next season’s Premier League (6/4 that he does not).

“Spain were simply unplayable tonight and have now won the right to be called the best European side ever,” said Hill’s spokesman Joe Crilly. “They are 20/1 to win the next two tournaments at least and the way they have played over the last eight years, it would take a brave man to be against them doing it.”

William Hill Spain Odds:

World Cup 2014 qualifying group I: 2/7 Spain; 5/2 France; 50/1 Belarus; 150/1 Finland; 200/1 Georgia

6/4 Spain to qualify for World Cup 2014 without losing

World Cup 2014 winner: 11/4 Brazil; 11/2 Argentina; 11/2 Spain; 8/1 Germany; 14/1 Holland; 14/1 Uruguay; 16/1 Italy; 20/1 England; 20/1 Portugal; 25/1 BAR

When will Spain next lose an international tournament: 1/8 World Cup 2014; 5/1 Euro 2016; 20/1 World Cup 2018 or later

Balotelli and Torres 2012/13 season match bet: 1/2 Torres; 6/4 Balotelli

Spain To Make History In Biggest Match Since World Cup Final?

UP TO 500 BETS PER MINUTE TO BE PLACED

Up to £25 million is set to be bet on this year’s Euros Final with Spain the 6/5 favourites with William Hill and Italy 13/5. Over the course of the two semi finals, 82,209 bets were staked in-play (while the match is being played), equating to 391 bets per minute and 7 bets per second, but Hills are expecting this to increase to around 500 bets per minute at some points during the Final.

“Despite England being nowhere near this game, we are still expecting turnover to be huge on this game,” said Hill’s spokesman Joe Crilly. “We think that the game itself will approach the £25 million mark industry wide, which would place it at a similar level to the 2010 World Cup Final and would far exceed any game of football that has been played since then.”

The match is expected to be a relatively close affair and is 21/10 to end level at 90 minutes and is 4/1 to go to penalties. Spain are 8/15 to lift the trophy while Italy are 6/4 to do so. Spain could become the first European side to win back to back major tournaments and it is 4/6 that the next tournament that they fail to win is the World Cup in Brazil, although they are 25/1 to not lose a tournament until at least the 2018 World Cup.

“Over the last four years or so, Spain have become the model that every other international side wants to emulate and they are a once in a lifetime side,” said Hill’s spokesman Joe Crilly. “By winning the Final on Saturday, they could cement their place as the best European side to ever play the game.”

Mario Balotelli was the architect of Italy’s victory against Germany in the Semi Final and he is 7/1 to score the first goal, while Hills are also offering the same price for Super Mario to score and Italy to win.

Spain’s performances in this tournament have been highlighted by patient, possession football and William Hill are 9/4 that they have between 60% and 65% of the match possession and 5/2 that they have 66% or more. Spain could become the first European side to win three back to back tournaments

Euro 2012 Final:

90 minutes: 6/5 Spain; 13/5 Italy; 21/10 Draw

To lift the trophy: 8/15 Spain; 6/4 Italy

Match to go to penalties: 4/1

First scorer: 6/1 Fernando Llorente; 6/1 Fernando Torres; 7/1 Mario Balotelli; 7/1 Cesc Fabregas; 7/1 Alvaro Negredo; 9/1 Pedro; 9/1 Antonio Di Natale; 10/1 BAR

When will Spain fail to win a major tournament: 6/4 Euro 2012; 4/6 World Cup 2014; 8/1 Euro 2016; 25/1 World Cup 2018 or later

How much possession will Spain have during the game: 12/1 50% or less; 5/2 51-55%; 7/4 56-60%; 9/4 60-65%; 5/2 66% or more

Super Mario Brothers Head To Head On Thursday

Germany are 2/5 favourites to progress to the final of the Euros, also offered at 10/11 by William Hill to win the match in 90 minutes. Germany are expected to win the match comfortably, and Mario Gomez and Miroslav Klose are 9/2 favourites to open the scoring. As if to highlight the perceived dominance of the German side, only one Italian player is in the top five in the first scorer betting – the mercurial Mario Balotelli (13/2).

The Italian has the potential to light up any stage with his ability but he is also prone to seeing the occasional red mist. Super Mario is 12/1 to receive a red card in Thursday’s encounter in 90 minutes. It is 25/1 that a red card is the first thing that happens to Balotelli in the match. The favourite is that he gets subbed at 11/10, 13/8 he will finish the match, 5/2 he will be booked and 4/1 he will score. With a character like Balotelli on the pitch, each of those are as likely as the other but William Hill believe he will behave himself without scoring and will be replaced.

There is another Super Mario expected to be on the pitch on Thursday night and that is the German one, Gomez. The joint top goal scorer at Euro 2012 is 5/2 that he will be beat Balotelli in a goals match bet with the Italian at 10/3. The odds suggest they may do as well as each other with a tie rated at 8/15.

“It could be argued that Gomez has been the stand out performer in a Germany team that has done so well at this tournament but Balotelli, while not being as prolific, has the ability to turn a game on its head in an instant,” said Hill’s spokesman Joe Crilly.

Germany/Italy:

Match betting: 10/11 Germany; 7/2 Italy; 11/5 Draw

To qualify: 2/5 Germany; 7/4 Italy

Man of the Match: 7/2 Mesut Ozil; 9/2 Andrea Pirlo; 11/2 Mario Gomez; 7/1 Miroslav Klose; 8/1 Mario Balotelli; 9/1 Lukas Podolski; 9/1 Marco Reus; 9/1 Antonio Cassano; 10/1 Antonio Di Natale; 10/1 Bastian Schweinsteiger; 11/1 BAR

Match to go to penalties: 5/1

First scorer: 9/2 Mario Gomez; 9/2 Miroslav Klose; 13/2 Lukas Podolski; 13/2 Mario Balotelli; 15/2 Marco Reus; 8/1 BAR

The Mario Derby:
Gomez Vs Balotelli (Bets void if both players don’t start)

5/2 Gomez, 8/15 tie, 10/3 Balotelli

12/1 Balotelli to receive a red card (90 mins only)

33/1 For Two More Shootouts…spain Favourites

A draw in the Spain/Portugal was a fantastic result for the bookmakers, with William Hill reporting that just 7% of all bets on the 90 minutes market were placed on the draw. “Spain had 56% of all bets and so anything avoiding a win would have been good for us, but a draw, coupled with the fact that Ronaldo failed to find the net resulted in a fantastic night for us,” said Hill’s spokesman Joe Crilly.

After being the second game in a row to go to penalties, William Hill are offering 33/1 that the second semi final and the final both go to penalties. The Germany/Italy game is 33/1 to go to penalties.

Spain have made it through to the final of the Euros and William Hill make them the 5/6 favourites to win the tournament now with Germany 7/4 and Italy 6/1.

Tournament winner: 5/6 Spain; 7/4 Germany; 6/1 Italy

Top goalscorer: 4/6 Mario Gomez; 10/1 Alan Dzagoev; 10/1 Mario Mandzukic; 10/1 Cristiano Ronaldo; 14/1 Fernando Torres; 20/1 Cesc Fabregas; 25/1 BAR

Top goalscorer: 15/8 Mario Gomez; 2/1 Cristiano Ronaldo; 9/2 Fernando Torres; 20/1 Cesc Fabregas; 25/1 Wayne Rooney; 25/1 Xabi Alonso; 40/1 BAR
