    Wrestling: What Would You Say Was The 2012 Pro Wrestling Match Of The Year? Of course, this is more of an opinion-based question, but I like to hear some opinions.

    I would say Davey Richards vs. Eddie Edwards IV from the ROH Wrestling tv show. Also, Richards/Elgin I was great. Lots of great action from ROH last year.

    BQ- Which company do you prefer in terms of in-ring action: Dragon Gate USA, Chikara Pro, or ROH?

    BQ2- How many wrestling promotions air on television in your area? From the east coast, I receive WWE, TNA, ROH, CMLL, and about three smaller promotions.

      1. Brock Lesnar v. John Cena – WWE Extreme Rules 4/29
      2. Angel Blanco Jr./El Hijo del Solitario vs. El Hijo Del Santo/Villano IV, TXT 2/25
      3. Blue Panther vs. Negro Casas, CMLL 3/2
      4. Sheamus v. Daniel Bryan – WWE Extreme Rules 4/29
      5. Daniel Bryan v. CM Punk – WWE Over The Limit 5/20
      6.Fit Finlay v. Sami Callihan WXW 3/2
      7. Sami Calihan v. Finlay – EVOLVE 4/13
      8. Tajiri vs. Finlay, Smash 2/19

    Who Wins The Arc On Sunday At Longchamp, And Other G1’s? Everyone knows the Prix De l’Arc de Triomphe is tomorrow, but who wins the big race, and also the other Group 1 races around it

    Prix de Cadran:

    Im on Blek, will relish the testing conditions, winner in France many times.

    Prix L’Abbaye:

    War Artist, Has won on the course and distance before, under a new-ish trainer now and ridden by a very experienced jockey, at a big price I would take him to run well, Lady of the Desert could have the race come to quick after winning at Ascot last week, so im happy to take her on.

    Prix Marcel Boussac:

    Helleborine who is unbeaten should win this easy but an obvius danger is Galikova.

    Prix Jean-Luc Lagardere:

    I take King Torus to run well, Richard Hannon has a lot of very promising 2 year olds this season and King Torus is certainly one of them, A big danger is Wootton Bassett who is unbeaten from 3 starts so has to be respected, but I take King Torus to edge this one.

    Prix de la Foret:

    Goldikova is the obvious one who stands out on the card to win, but if more rain comes it is more likely she will be taken out along with Paco Boy, so Dick Turpin is one to take note of, has won a group 1 in France before so shouldnt mind the course with the price of 6/1

    Prix de l’Arc de Triomphe:

    3 horses I have chosen are Duncan who has won in France a few weeks back for his prep race and in form jockey William Buick rides, Cavalryman who seems to like France more than he does England, and was 4th last year and also Sarafina who I think will run well off of bottom weight

    Prix de l’Opera:

    I think Lily of the Valley will extend her unbeaten run in this but will take some doing to beat Stacelita, also Antara is one to take note of for Godolphin.

    So what do you think will win on Sunday at Longchamp?

    • Curator says:

      In The Qatar Prix Du Cadran, Blek has all the obvious form for the winner of this race however he is currently untested over 2m4f and with a disapointing run into 3rd last time I would look elsewhere. Kasbah Bliss is an old favourite who was thought to be a good hurdler and can easily get this long distance and the soft going will only help his cause however a long losing streak and ground to make up with the favourite (Blek) 5/2 seems far too short a price to back him at. Therfore I turn my attention to the Gerald Mosse partnered GENTOO. Although the furthest he has been tried at has been over 2m, his promising running on efforts over sundays soft going suggests that all could be in his favour. The trainer has been keen to continuosly up the distance after he keeps finding more and his only defeats this season have been leaving him a close second. Therefore 5/1 seems a good price for an improving horse who has yet to finish unplaced in 9 carear starts and trying it for the first time at this group.

      In the Prix De l’Abbaye I think Bluster is far too big a price at 40/1 for a horse who has magnificent form over soft and was not far touched of a win behind Swiss Diva last time out at Longchampre. He should be worth an each way shout with no mucking about with William Buick on board. Total Gallery hasn’t been hiself this season and form has been well behind what it was last year and a repeat victory after winless scince this race is unlikly. Therfore I move onto the consistent Prohobit who has won on both Good to Soft and Good to Firm and whith many wins over 6f will ebnefit hit on this going. He has very speady form which he will need for this race and Jamie Spencer will be looking to hold him up and take the leaders hopefully late on. The classy Merchand Dor is a mere shadow of his former self and has shown it with much ground to make up with others and although Mick Channon has booked Gerald Mosse for the ride on his Mister Hughie, his unconsistent form in much worse company will have him needing to find too much in this group (especially with his form over Good to Firm). War Artist seems to want more than this and Good to Firm os his foreplay and Meydan form horses whould be left alone. Prime Defender and Judge And Jury are out of their depth and Lady Of The Desert definantly has the form but a doubt over the speed with no win over 5f scince his first carear start and other have more speedy tipes on offer. The same for Rose Blossom and Piccadilly Filly and Gilt Edged Girl have all flopped in better company than what they won in. So for the winner I turn to the most impressive AMICO FRITZ who has won twice recently in France over a fast 5f in soft and the only run in England in the hotly contested Golden Jubilee where he came a good 5th of 24 and with all the speed behind him 20/1 is far too big.

      Unfortunatly as I rule I stay away from all 2yr old races however I would bet on the classy favourite HELLEBORINE in the Prix Marcel Bousac and maybe each way on the Gosden trained Rainbow Springs who is well bred and wouldn’t be there without a chance with only a placed effort on his only chance. 16/1 seems a good price.

      For the Prix Jean-Luc Lagardere I would say go for the Richard Hannon trained KING TORUS who can shake it at this level whereas Wooton Basset does not strike as a group horse and Moonlight Cloud is beatable on this going.

      The Prix De La Foret is fairly straight forward with GOLDIKOVA looking to make up for an unfortunate second to an imrpving Fuisse last time out but that horse isn’t there and Paco Boy has yet to finish in front of Goldikova. However 9/4 is too short for an out of form great and therefore an each way bet on the dual guineas herroin Special Duty who has to overcome a disapointing run last time and hopefully France will bring out the best of the 16/1 shot with the ground in her favour.

      The Prox De l’Arc de Triomphe is between CAPE BLANCO and BEHKABAD with each way punts on Plumania and Workforce (for a longer asnwer check my last best answer)

      Finally for the Prix De l’Opera your guess is as good as mine however I would have a bet on the improving and speedy NOURIYA for Sir Michael Stoute and the boys back home.
