Aintree is here!!! Day 1 of Grand National Meeting

  Aintree has now arrived.  After all the hullabaloo of Cheltenham the national hunt season moves North to Liverpool. Of course the pinnacle of this meeting arrives on Saturday in the shape of the Grand National.  However before then we have nearly 3 days of top class jumps racing to enjoy betting on horse racing. Aintree Day 1 kicks off with 4 Grade 1 races in succession. The 1.45 race sees 6 runners currently going to post.  The likely favourite is

Cheltenham Day 1 – Tuesday March 12

Cheltenham Day 1 has finally arrived and horse racing has never needed it more. After equine flu and then the debacle at Sandown Park on Saturday we can only hope that Cheltenham shows us how glorious the”Sport of Kings” can be. Cheltenham Day 1 kicks off at 1.30 with the Supreme Novices Hurdle. 17 runners go to post for this Grade 1. I particularly like the look of Angels Breath.  Whilst this horse has less experience than many of his rivals, what

Tottenham v Arsenal – Saturday 2nd March

Tottenham to edge closer to European football for next season? Tottenham host their bitter North London rivals Arsenal in the early Saturday kick off. Before then Tottenham go to Chelsea this evening (Wednesday) and Arsenal play AFC Bournemouth. The gap between the 2 clubs is currently 7 points.  By Saturday afternoon there is a feeling that could be down to 1 point.  For Tottenham to be further ahead than that they are going to have to do something they have

Ascot Chase 2019 – Saturday 16th February

The Ascot Chase 2019 sees Ruth Jefferson sends out Waiting Patiently looking to reclaim the Grade One event after claiming it in 2018. Last year he won after a battle with the legendary Cue Card.  This maintained his 100% record on the racecourse. Since then his only appearance on a racetrack was at Kempton Park in the King George 2018.  He was incredibly unfortunate to unseat his rider after Bristol De Mai fell at the 9th fence.  I personally felt he was

West Ham v Liverpool – Monday 3rd February

West Ham will be looking to derail the Liverpool title charge in the Monday night football on Sky. However if you are a Liverpool fan then possibly only Huddersfield would be your preferred opponent over West Ham.  In their last four meeting against West Ham, Liverpool have struck 4 goals on each occasion. They have won 4-0 on 2 occasions and 4-1 on 2 other occasions.  In the reverse fixture this season Liverpool ran out 4-0 winners to get their

The Emirates FA Cup 4th round gets underway on Friday. The tie of the round is Arsenal v Man Utd.  These 2 clubs are the most successful in the history of the competition with 25 wins between them.  Arsenal have 13 wins and Man Utd have 12. Arsenal have won 3 of the last 5 FA Cup competitions.  They have made the 5th round in 7 of the last 8 seasons.  The only season that they failed to do so was last season

Champion Hurdle Trial 2019 – Haydock Park

The Champion Hurdle Trial has now been renamed The New One Unibet Hurdle (Champion Hurdle Trial). This is in honour of the well loved horse trained by Nigel Twiston Davies who won the last 4 runnings of this race (2015-2018). Currently 10 runners go to post and the first 6 in the market are all single figures. Silver Streak is the current favourite and is a consistent sort for trainer Evan Williams.  In 13 runs he has only finished out of the frame

Showcase Meeting – Cheltenham 26-27 October

Showcase Meeting heralds return of the Jump Season For me the Showcase Meeting which takes place on Friday 26th and Saturday 27th means that that the jumps season is finally beginning in full swing.  The flat season bar the Breeders Cup is now in the distance. This is potentially our first chance to look at horses who in a little over 4 and a half months we will hopefully be roaring on to success in the Championship races at the

Champions Day – Ascot Saturday 20th October

Champions Day to start with Honour for O’Brien? Champions Day is seen by many as the pinnacle of the flat season. 6 races take place at Ascot racecourse.  4 of these are Group 1.  The highest amount of prize money ever at a British racecourse will be available for this the 8th running of Champions Day. The total amount of prize money this year will top £4.3 million. Champions Day gets under way at 1.25 with the Long Distance Cup.  This race

Tottenham v Barcelona – Champions League

Tottenham in a must win match already? Tottenham entertain Barcelona in Matchday 2 having suffered injury time heartache at the San Siro against Inter Milan when looking well set for at least a point for most of the game a fortnight ago. They can ill-afford to lose the game against the experienced Catalans as they will then be 6 points behind at this early stage.  I would anticipate that Inter Milan will gain at least a point against PSV as

Cambridgeshire Meeting at Newmarket – Live On ITV

Cambridgeshire Meeting & Racing Returns to Rowley Mile The 3 day Cambridgeshire meeting sees some top quality flat racing at the HQ of flat racing – Newmarket. I am skipping over Day 1 and focusing my attention on Days 2 and 3. Within those 2 days there are 2 races that stand out for me.  On day 2 there is the 7f Juvenile Fillies Shadwell Rockfel Stakes which is a Group 2 race.  In racing circles this is widely seen as

Afaak trained by Charlie Hills is currently trading as favourite.  He ran a fantastic race in the Royal Hunt Cup last time out and certainly looks the one the get past this time.  Alfarris trained by William Haggis was unfortunate to get beaten a neck in the Class 2 Besso 2 at Sandown Park.   This was on Good

Irish Oaks Sixth Success for O’Brien? Aiden O’Brien will be aiming for his sixth Irish Oaks.  These have all come since 2006. In a field of just 7 runners O’Brien has 3 runners going to post.  2 of the 3 certainly have strong chances of giving him the 6th win and emulating Sir Michael Stoute. These 2 fillies are Magic Wand and Forever Together.  This will be the 3rd time these 2 have met on the racecourse this season and the score currently

The Open Championship 2018 – Carnage again at Carnoustie? The Open Championship comes to Carnoustie for the 7th occasion this week.  The course is often referred to as Carnasty as though the Par is only 71 it acknowledged to be the hardest course on the Open Championship roster. This is of course the where famously Jean Van De Velde blew a 3 shot lead on the final hole after finding the Barry Burn.  The rough on the course is very

Coral Eclipse – Sandown Park Saturday 7th July

Coral Eclipse – 2 horse race? The Coral Eclipse at Sandown Park this Saturday is being seen by many as a 2 horse race.  The 2 horses in question are Masar and Roaring Lion. Masar has not ran since winning the Derby at Epsom in June.  On that day he beat Roaring Lion by 2l.  They have met on 2 other previous occasions.  On those occasions Masar has beaten his rival 0.5l at Newmarket in May at the 2000 Guineas and 9l in

World Cup 2018 Who CAN Win It? The World Cup 2018 kicks off in Russia in a little over 72 hours.  In all likelihood there is little probability of the hosts being there to lift the trophy when the final takes place on July 15th. So who are the likely contenders the lift the Jules Rimet trophy?  Will it be the usual suspects?  Or will a new country surprise us all and come from the pack? Unsurprisingly Brazil head the market.  Currently available at

The Oaks – Epsom Friday 1st June

O’Brien to claim another Oaks win? Aiden O’Brien has 5 of the 9 declared runners for the 2018 Oaks.  This obviously gives him a great chance of adding to the 6 times that he has already won this race. Magic Wand is a horse who has improved with every run.  This culminated with a very impressive victory in the Cheshire Oaks.  There she won by 3.5l  over Forever Together.  Whilst this race is another step up the way she won that

FA Cup Final 2018 – Conte’s Last Hurrah? Is the FA Cup Final 2018 likely to be Antonio Conte’s last match in charge of Chelsea? It is incredible to think that it is only a year since Chelsea were lifting the Premier League trophy.  At that point it was inconceivable to think that Conte would in all likelihood be gone a season later.  Even if his team were to go on and lift the FA Cup I believe that he

Newmarket Classic success again for O’Brien? Aidan O’Brien will be looking to claim another Newmarket classic with the 2000 Guineas on Saturday. Gustav Klimt currently heads the market and already has form at Newmarket having won the Superlative Stakes in July.  Unfortunately he then missed the remainder of the season.  He has ran this season already though and won easily in heavy going at Leopardstown.  There was a very interesting tweet during the week stating that none of O’Briens 8 previous
