  1. Sounds like Miskowiak has been injured in heat 2 at Vetlanda after a clash with Kling.

    Corals and Laddies have prices up for the Elitserien Outright. I have to say 7/1 for Vetlanda looks very big now after winning at Dackarna last night. A win tonight and they could go top. I'd have thought they should be about a 2/1 shot not 7/1.
  3. If Vetlanda can get a scoring reserve, they now look the team to beat IMO.

    Missed that bet. Pity, now only 6.5 start

    BetVictor have all 3 but only match result. Skybet have a few alternative handicaps up. I think 10 start could be enough for Somerset?
  6. I'm going next Monday to Poland and have just got tickets for Wroclaw v Czestachowa on the 29th July. It wasn't straight forward though!!! I had to sign up set up an account with Wroclaw and then buy the tickets. Sounds easy enough, but the Halifax declined my payment until I confirmed it was me and then still it wouldn't go through until I changed to a different card provider. Anyway all sorted and hopefully a decent match to look forward to.

    Didn't last long. Now Evens.

    I know there can be injuries and you have to wait a while for the GP to end, but 13/8 Skybet for Tai Woffinden to be Champion has to be a bet??? I'm all over Freddie (earlier on this thread) EW at 20/1 and he could still do it but he's got 11 points to find and Emil is another 6 points further back. It looks a 2 horse race barring injuries so 13/8 looks pretty massive to me. I can't see it lasting.

    Agree and have backed Laguta at Evens. Also done Emil over 8 at a generous 9/5 (well it seems generous now). Also backed Emil at 20/1 to win it and 3/1 to reach the final with Sky. Doesn't look a bad draw to me. Doyle has to have a big shout here but 11/2 is a bit skinny.
  10. Looking on the sky planner it looks like there is no LIVE Speedway on next Tuesday. Premier HD has Celtic in a Champions League qualifier on live and nothing on Freesports. Premier have highlights at 2am on Wednesday? Probably on other times also. A bit odd that it's not on Freesports if Premier showing football. Pity.
  11. I'm with you tonight. Not many times it would happen, but the pubs calling with my mates. Record button activated though.
  12. That sounds like a thumping home win.

    Hopefully I'll be back in time for tonights Danish GP but had to play early in case I'm not. Nicki Pedersen 20/1 EW Ladbrokes with a boost. Standard price is 18/1 and it looks big to me for a home GP. Zmarzlik 16/1 EW also. Zmarzlik over 8 23/20 with 365 NP to win Heat 1 2/1 at 365. Good luck to all who play and let's hope it's a cracker.
  14. Leon Madsen replaces Wozniak.

    Had a couple of EW bets for fun. King 35/1 and Richie Worrall 25/1. I think out of the Favs Schlein is easily the best value at 7/1 but only done the 2 above.
  16. 100% Correct. Tai was brilliant over the 2 days and without him we'd probably have been battling Germany for last place. Who knows why he chased Laguta, but he did!! Maybe the final got to him and he just wanted to win. Must be a bit alien letting another rider zoom off when it's in your nature to race. While I'm on here, regarding the tapes warning rule. Personally I'd let them all move at the start and unless they touch the tapes let it go, flyers are a great gate IMO. However, if we are to have warnings in this and the GP I'd say make it a clean slate when we get to the semis. If they move in either the semi or final then they get a new warning. The semi final on Saturday was very poor and a real downer for the meeting, although correct decision under the current rule.
  17. Maybe, but Surely Lindgren and Madsen in last 2 heats.
  18. What was wrong with that start. Heat 11.
  19. In principal you're correct, but just can't see it. If a rider gets excluded for dangerous riding then they were probably going out anyway if they were trying to slow up the race to help the guy at the back. They may as well risk it as it's really a no lose gamble. If the result was after 21 heats, we wouldn't be having the debate.
  20. Don't think it will happen. There'll be uproar if someone gets kicked out at the end and even if the ref does exclude a rider then the danger has already happened.
  21. Heats 22 & 23 could be carnage tomorrow unless a pair gate on a 5-1. Basically in those 2 races it's irrelevant who wins the race. The only thing that matters is not to be last, nothing else matters. It stands to reason then, that if you gate and your mate is not with you, you have to slow the race down. It's totally insignificant if you're passed by an opponent as long as you're not passed by both. I can see this going badly wrong and it's dangerous. Agree earlier in the thread about Zagar slowing up. It caused a problem, but you can't blame Zagar as he was "team riding". This is more the reason why the champions should be the winner after heat 21. Understand totally about TV etc and finals but this doesn't come into play for normal GP's.

    I've done Sweden for tonights SON 2nd Semi. 5/2 at Unibet seems fair enough in a 3 horse race. They've actually got gates 1 and 3 against Australia and Team GB also. Certainly not gone mad though.
