Meeting at university, Daniel Watkins and Peter Nurse became friends, helped by a love of sports and the associated betting industry.

We have enjoyed the highs and lows of sports betting, from the last gasp win of Anzum in the Stayers Hurdle at 66-1, to the ill-fated each way plunge on Richard Virenque for the Tour de France the night before the team doctor/chemist was raided by French police.

In 2003, Daniel started the Cheltenham Festival Guide, with an aim to entertain, and to inform through a mix of judgement and analytics.

With this blog we hope to continue to inform, entertain, and hopefully provide a few winners as we take a daily look at the world of sports betting.

Please bet carefully, but enjoy yourselves.
