YOU SHOULD! ENGLAND FOR SIX NATIONS GLORY


doing so he will have to overcome for many the banker of the whole meeting – Nicky Henderson’s Shishkin who is currently trading at odds-on. Shishkin might win but is no odds-on shot.


Finally in this section I have been looking with greedy eyes at the Stayers’ Hurdle where Paisley Park attempts to regain her crown. I don’t fancy the favourite and rather would speculate on last year’s clash in the Mares’ Hurdle between Honeysuckle (the eventual winner) and BENIE DES DIEUX. Not only was Benie the Mullins’ hot pot of the meeting and considered unbeatable but his reputation was unparalleled. One year on and I believe Benie is on a retrieval mission. If he turns up in the Stayers people laying him could be made to look very foolish. At 10/1 for your money he represents incredible value.


Away from Cheltenham, next weekend sees the culmina- tion of the American football season with last year’s Superbowl Champions, the Kansas City Chiefs playing the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in the Superbowl. The curious thing about this year is that for the first time in Superbowl history the venue of the Superbowl – the Raymond James Stadium – will be at the home of one of the participants, the aforementioned Bucs of Florida. More interesting still, it will also feature the oldest quarterback in NFL history to appear in the big enchilada when Tom Brady, the G.O.A.T., the man with more Superbowl rings than Saturn, attempts to lift his new-found


team over the line. This would also be the first time a quar- terback has led two different teams to Superbowl glory (namely the Bucs and the Pats). SHAME IT AIN’T GONNA HAPPEN! Andy Reid’s KCC will laud it in the final. KCC have the best offense, the better defense and the mo (from MO!). Chief are three points favourites but for a working man I would advocate a winning margin being between 7 and 12 points at 5/1 or my personal fancy, 13-18 points at 7/1. Those who want to back 7-18 points can get aroud 5/2 for your


money. FEBRUARY 2021 PREMIER LEAGUE DARTS


February also sees the start of the Premier League Darts and again Covid restrictions have restricted this annual jam- boree; not longer at its traditional city locations but replaced by the antiseptic, soulless venue of the Marshall Arena in Mil- ton Keynes. It’s not antiseptic or soulless when PHTM have their EXPO there, but without a live audience, funny results tend to happen. I do think this is part of the problem and malaise of the Mighty Green Machine (MVG) and losing his world crown in January was a further example. Anyway this year’s participants consist of players out of form, has-beens approaching their sell-by date and aspiring arrowsmiths. One of which is last year’s surprise package, NATHAN ASPINALL (the Asp) from Stockport. Now firmly in the big time he can go for- ward from last year’s event and claim this year’s crown at a generous price of 12/1.


SIX NATIONS


If darts represents one social class in the UK, then rugby union certainly represents another with yesteryear’s Sloanes in rap- tures over the combative nature of the ultimate contact sport. Don’t make me laugh, I would rather watch St Helens or Warrington Wolves than Leicester Tigers or Harlequins. That said ENGLAND repre- sent incredible value at 5/4 to retain their


crown with fixtures this year in their favour. Naturally you won’t get rich at 5/4 but you may decide to stick England in any double, treble or Yankee.


In March’s edition we can look forward to Masters Golf (I’m sure that was only in November), oh, it was, together with Champions League and Europa Cup football, the EFL Cup Final between Man City and Spurs and, of course…Chel- tenham.


Look out for up-to-the-minute daily tips for Cheltenham from Bernie the Book on the morning of each day’s racing.


Until next time, good punting.
