As with most major tournaments at this moment in time, all eyes will be on \Ronnie\ O’Sullivan, a firm fans favourite, who will be aiming to gain his sixth

Pro 12 Rugby – The Fight for the Playoffs

We enter the final 3 rounds of the league season. Who do we expect to see finishing in the top 4 and qualifying for the semi-finals and the playoffs? The form team has to be Glasgow. They have won their last 7 matches including a trio of Irish scalps in Ulster, Munster and top-of-the-table Leinster. Glasgow still have to face 4th-placed Scarlets and 2nd-placed Connacht away. But they are the team that no one wants to face on current form.

Tip of the Day. Horse Racing 28 March 2016

Finally we break the run of bad luck!  Hope you all got on.  For today’s tip we go over to Fairyhouse for the Irish Grand National which takes place at 5pm.  The tip is \Mala Beach\.  I would advocate doing this EW and obviously shop around for the best terms.  Most bookmakers are going 1/4 for 5 places but worth checking that this is the case.

Tip of The Day. Horse Racing 26 March 2016

First of all, apologies to all for the appalling run of form!!  Hopefully the tip today can put that bad run behind us and get us back onto the winning road.  The tip for today runs in the 2.40 at Newton Abbot and is called \Knockgraffon\. It is taking a drop in class having run in the Imperial Cup at Sandown last time out. If we take that race out of the equation it has the clearly best form on

Tip of The Day. Horse Racing 24 March

As I am not on a great run I thought that my tip today will come from a Hunter’s Chase!  Today’s tip runs in the 5.30 Chepstow and is called \Royale Django\. Also check out the guide how to bet on horse racing to learn more about the opportunities. The horse is very young to be pushed into this sphere and I think this could work to his advantage.  Last time out he had just got to the front 3

Tip of The Day. Horseracing 22 March 2016

Today’s horseracing 22 March, is not of the highest quality.  Still giving it a go though! Today’s tip runs in the 4.4o at Exeter and has the tried and trusted partnership of Hobbs/Johnson.  The selection is \Free of Charge\. The horse has won previously over course and distance and whilst form this season has not been spectacular the rivals have nothing to write home about either.   I believe that the main danger may come from Mor Brook but it

This weekend sees the much anticipated return of Formula 1, the first week of the new season kicking off in Melbourne, Australia. Much has been made of \Mercedes\ dominance in recent seasons, however all the teams have been working tirelessly over the winter in order to close the gap, none more so than Ferrari. \Ferrari\ were \Mercedes\’ closest rivals last year, but the gap was still massive, \Mercedes\ winning the Constructors’ Championship by 275 points. However pre-season tests this year

The tip has won 6 Grade 1 previously and in a very open race I think can lead from the front and put the other under pressure from the off.  This should bring the mare Annie Power’s speed into question and in turn her
