Men’s Tennis – Australian Open – 15-28 January

Old Guard to rule at the Australian Open Men’s Tennis again I? The first slam of the men’s tennis season gets under way in a little over 24 hours. It is incredible to look at the odds and see ROGER FEDERER as a clear favourite.  He is biggest price  2/1 with bookmakers to claim an incredible 20th career Major. He is of course the defending champion having won the epic 5 set final last year over RAFAEL NADAL. Federer appears to have been given

Welsh Grand National – Chepstow Saturday 6th January

Welsh Grand National success for Sue Smith? Sue Smith will be looking to VINTAGE CLOUDS to strike in the Welsh Grand National at Chepstow  on Saturday. The gelding comes here in good form with a 1st and 2nd  in his last 2 runs.  With the going expected to be on the heavy side this will also suit him.  Although beaten last time out this was over 2m 5f and in a small field.  I think that the extra 1m 0.5 furlong and

Tottenham v West Ham – Sky Sports 4th January

Tottenham to continue fine festive run? Tottenham will look to make it 4 wins from 4 over the festive period. If they do so they will consolidate 5th position in the league and heap pressure on those above.  Depending on results this evening in the Arsenal v Chelsea game they could find themselves only 4 points from 2nd place having had their bad run in late October/early November. During that run they only picked up 4 points from a possible

Crystal Palace v Manchester City – Premier League

Manchester City to equal record victories? Manchester City aim to equal the record of consecutive league victories in Europe’s top 5 leagues with victory against Crystal Palace. Should they win it will be their 19th consecutive league victory.  Incredibly Pep Guardiola coached the current holders of the record Bayern Munich who won 19 in season 2013-14. It could be argued that this is a more impressive run as the strength in depth in the Premier League is deemed to be

King George VI Chase – Tuesday 26th December

Can Thistlecrack retain the King George VI? We have a Christmas cracker to look forward to at Kempton Park with the King George VI Chase this year. This looks to be one of the strongest and open contests for many a year.  Last years winner Thistlecrack is here to defend his crown but is not the force he once was. If he was anywhere near the horse he was last year at this point you would be lucky to get 1/6 never

Long Walk Hurdle – Ascot Saturday 23rd December

Long Walk Success Again for Harry? Unowwhatimeanharry faces up to 8 rivals in his quest to retain his Long Walk Hurdle crown at Ascot on Saturday 23rd December at 2.25pm. He comes here on the back on a shock defeat to 40/1 outsider Beer Goggles in the Long Distance Hurdle at Newbury.  That race was supposedly a match between him and Thistlecrack. I feel that they gave the winner a little too much leeway up front.  If the race was run

Newbury Winter Festival Saturday 2nd December

The Hennessy No More – End of An Era at Newbury The Hennessy Gold Cup is no more at the Newbury Winter Festival.  It is now to be known as the Ladbrokes Trophy Chase.  So ends the longest running sponsorship of a national hunt race in the UK. It just does not seem the same to associate this great race with a bookmaker.  I appreciate that times change and sponsorship must be obtained where it can. For me one of

Long Distance Hurdle – Newbury Friday Dec 1st

Thistlecrack to triumph in Long Distance Hurdle? Thistlecrack makes his long awaited return in the Long Distance Hurdle at Newbury on Friday. He has already won the Long Distance Hurdle in 2015.  On that occasion hew on by an impressive 6 length on ground that is likely to be very similar to the going tomorrow. Incredibly since April 2015 Thistlecrack has only tasted defeat on a racecourse twice.  Once was by half a length and the other occasion by a head

He will be looking to win it for the 3rd consecutive year.  If he is to do it then it will be without his usual jockey Paddy Brennan.

Meanwhile Manchester City are at home against the whipping boys Fetenoord.

Aintree Saturday Racing is Back! Tomorrow sees the first Aintree Saturday meeting of the season.  With the November handicap taking place at Doncaster it finally feels like the jumps season is taking over now from the flat and we are approaching mid-November! The going tomorrow is expected to be Good to Soft – Good in places therefore the classier horses in the races should come to the fore. There are 3 stand out races for me tomorrow.  The Pertemps Network

England v Germany – Friday 10th November

England Expects…. The question on everyone’s lips is what exactly does England expect from the international friendly with Germany on Friday. I fear for Gareth Southgate and his team.  With a raft of players pulling out with “injuries” and their mum (sorry clubs) providing sick notes Gareth Southgate has made a brave call in bringing fresh blood into the squad. It would have been very easy to fall back on the tried and tested.  I think that Southgate should be

Racing Post Atzeni Renewal? Remarkably the last 4 renewals of the Racing Post Trophy have seen Andrea Atzeni saddle the winner.  Atzeni is due to ride Martyn Meade’s Chilean.  He is currently available ate a general 12/1. It will be very hard to see him winning 5 in a row with Aiden O’Brien likely to have the top 2 in the market. O’Brien Racing Post Trophy to Break Group 1 Record? Saxon Warrior comes into the race with a 100% record.

The Queen Elizabeth II Stakes sees currently 15 runners going to post.  Of those I can I can only really see 4 potentially winning. Ribchester currently heads up the market.  Richard Fahey’s colt comes her in fine form having won 3 of his last 4 races.  His only defeat I think can be be put down

Liverpool v Manchester Utd – Saturday 14th 12.30pm

More Mersey Joy for Manchester Utd? Manchester Utd come into this match absolutely flying.  Utd are full of confidence having won 6 and drawn 1 of their opening 7 Premier League fixtures. They are also the 2nd top scorers in the league behind Manchester City.  Man Utd also share the joint tightest defence with their city rivals.  All of this points towards a revival for the Red Devils in the league under Jose Mourinho from the dour defensive team of

Cesarewitch – Newmarket Saturday October 14th

Cesarewitch Carnage for Punters Again? No favourite has won the Cesarewitch since 2009 when Darley Sun won at 9/2 with Andrea Atzeni on board.  Since then we have prices ranging from 66/1 (twice) to last years winners which was the shortest in recent years at 7/1. In fact last years winner at 7/1 was the lowest price since Darley Sun’s victory.  Incredibly since 1992 there have only been 5 single price victors in the Cesarewitch. This shows how much this

Since then Scotland have rallied impressively.  They have won 3 and drawn 1 of the next 4 fixtures
