Specialist sports: American football, football and golf

Notable success: David has continued to churn out the winners in his main area of NFL and made another profit in the opening month of the new campaign Stateside. He tries to look beyond the obvious for his selections from the Premier League football and this season has already thrown up 13/1 anytime goalscorer success on Watford's Jose Holebas while a recent PGA Tour golf preview found 100/1 winner Cody Gribble.
