Champions League Matchday 2

Champions League Matchday 2 English Double? The Champions League returns this week and I can see an away Champions League Matchday 2 double on Tuesday evening for 2 English teams. Tottenham are in Cyprus playing APOEL Nicosia and Liverpool are in Russia playing Spartak Moscow. Spurs got off to a great start in their group by beating Borussia Dortmund 3-1.  This also put to rest their Wembley European hoodoo.  Now they need to ensure that hard work does not go

Ayr Bronze Cup
Betting Tips

Ayr Bronze Cup – 3.50 Friday 22nd September

Another Ayr Bronze Cup Annihilation for Punters? The Ayr Bronze Cup is no Punters friend.  The event has only been  around since 2009.  In that time only Jack Dexter in 2012 at odds of 5/1 has been a winning favourite. 25 runners go to the post on Friday for the latest running of the event.  The 6f sprint is likely to take place in heavy going with Thursday’s racing having been abandoned due to parts of the course being waterlogged.

St Leger Stakes- Doncaster Saturday 16th September

St Leger Glory again for Gosden? The oldest of the 5 classic races takes place at Doncaster at 3.35 on Saturday 16th September. John Gosden currently holds a strong hand with 2 strong fancies in the 11 runner field.  He has a good record in this race with 3 winners in the last 10 years.  Lucarno in 2007, Arctic Cosmos in 2010 and Masked Marvel in 2011 Coronet is likely to go off towards the top of the market.  The trip

British Hopes in The Champions League?

They look to have a winnable group.  Group A which includes Basel, CSKA Moscow and Benfica.  They should all be accounted for at Old Trafford and

Irish St Leger – Curragh Racecourse

Can Order Be Restored To Irish St Leger? Can Order of St George go one better than last year and win the Irish St Leger? He runs once again against his conqueror in this race last year Wicklow Brave.  Since then they have raced against each other and as recently as August this year.  Order of St George ran out an easy winner on that occasion winning by 4.75l and beating Wicklow Brave by 9.75l. What was noticeable in the defeat last year

Manchester City v Liverpool
Betting Tips

Manchester City v Liverpool – Sky Sports Main Event

Manchester City Magic or Mayhem? Manchester City play host to Liverpool in the early kick off on Saturday in the Premier League.  Both teams come into the game with identical league records.  They have played 3 matches, won 2 and drawn 1.  For me however that is where the comparison ends. Manchester City were very fortunate to beat Bournemouth 2-1.  Raheem Sterling scored the winner in the 97th minute and there was only supposed to be 5 mins injury time!

US Open 2017
Betting Tips

US Open Tennis Men’s Tennis – Flushing Meadows

US Open Injuries throws tournament wide open? The US Open of 2017 is potentially one of the most open Slam tournaments in recent times.  With no Novak Djokovic, Stan Wawrinka, Kei Nishikori or Milos Raonic could this be the year that one of the young guns come through and finally wins a major trophy? Of course standing in the way is still 3 of the big 4 in the shape of Roger Federer, Rafael Nadal and Andy Murray. Old Guard

Nunthorpe

Nunthorpe Group 1 Stakes – Day 3 Ebor Meeting

Nunthorpe Joy for Frankie? The Nunthorpe brings us to possibly the most anticipated race of the whole Ebor meeting. From the USA is the Wesley Ward trained Lady Aurelia.  From the UK is the Charlie Hills’ trained Battaash. Lady Aurelia comes here with the impressive form figures of 4 wins from 5 races.  Her  only defeat came when she attempted 6f in the Cheveley Stakes at Newmarket in September 2016 and was caught in the final 100 yards eventually going down by

Quail Hollow
Betting Tips

USPGA Championship – Quail Hollow

Quail Hollow – History in the Making? Quail Hollow host golfs final major of the year.  We could potentially see history if Jordan Spieth manages to win the tournament he will become only the 6th golfer in history to achieve the “Career Grand Slam”. He will join illustrious greats of the game such as Jack Nicklaus, Tiger Woods, Ben Hogan, Gary Player and Gene Sarazen.  Notably Spieth would become the youngest player in history to achieve this accolade. The question

Super Cup – Real Madrid v Man Utd

Super Cup Success for Real? The Super Cup in Skopje is the first piece of silverware available for both teams this season.  If Real Madrid were to win it they would be the first team to retain the Super Cup since the Arrigo Sacchi managed AC Milan team in 1989-90. As the competition only began in 1972 Real Madrid have only won the Super Cup on 3 occasions.  2 of those are recent (2014 and 2016), the other being 2002.

Big Orange

Goodwood Cup – Big Orange to bear fruit again?

Goodwood Cup Orange Double? The Goodwood Cup has now been granted Group One status.  Last year’s winner Big Orange is the clear favourite for the renewal this year. He comes here on the back of a very impressive victory at Royal Ascot in the Gold Cup.  There he held off the highly rated Order of St George by a short head. This time Aiden O’Brien is throwing US Army Ranger at Big Orange to see if there are any chinks

Premier League Champions 2017-2018?

Premier League Same old Same Old? Since the inception of the Premier League in 1992 only 6 teams have lifted the trophy.  With the exception of Leicester City in 2015-2016 the other teams are all amongst the so called “big six”.  In the past it was the “big four”  (Liverpool, Arsenal, Manchester Utd and Chelsea) but with the influx of foreign investment into Manchester City and Tottenham this has become the “big six”. In effect there are 3 leagues within

Darley July Cup

Darley July Cup Stakes Newmarket

Caravaggio Darley Class Above? Carravaggio comes into this race on the back of an impressive Commonwealth Cup victory at Royal Ascot.  This puts him clear of his major rival Harry Angel once again on bare form lines. Caravaggio fell out of the stalls at Royal Ascot but still managed to come home by 0.75l ahead of Harry Angel.  Over the same distance at Newmarket and running in a straight line I can only see Carravaggio enhancing his burgeoning reputation. 6

Wimbledon Ladies Singles Title

Wimbledon Ladies Winner? Can Johanna Konta finally end 40 years of Wimbledon Ladies woe for British Ladies Tennis by lifting the Venus Rosewater dish on Saturday afternoon? First she has to overcome the huge obstacle of Venus Williams this afternoon.  I personally think that this will be a harder match than any prospective opponent she will meet in the final. Konta has shown admirable qualities in overcoming Simona Halep and Donna Vekic in 2 very tough matches.  She will need

Coral Eclipse – Sandown Park

Total Eclipse of  the trainers again? Can Aidan O’Brien claim his 6th Eclipse victory with Derby runner up Cliffs of Moher on Saturday at Sandown Park?  O’Brien had six Eclipse wins under his belt but interestingly has only one runner in this race apart from supposed pacemaker Taj Mahal.  He is currently likely to go off at 2/1 favourite.  It will be interesting to see the tactics employed as 1m 2f may be Cliffs of Moher premium trip but this

Wimbledon – Men’s Singles Championship

The Wimbledon Oldies? The big 4 are back at the top of the market again.  It is like travelling back in time! Who would have believed that at the age of 35 Roger Federer would be 9/4 favourite to win his 8th Wimbledon title and potentially his 19th Grand Slam. Federed deliberately avoided his least favourite slam the French to ensure his fitness levels were at their optimum for Wimbledon.  He comes into the tournament having won the Halle Open

Irish Derby – The Curragh Saturday 1st July

O’Brien’s Irish Derby Delight? Aiden O’Brien goes for another Irish Derby on Saturday.  Since 2006 he has won 8 Irish Derbies.  He has another great chance hear of adding another Irish Derby as he has 8 runners in the 12 runner field. Amongst those is the English Derby winner Wings of Eagles.  He beat his more fancied stablemate Cliffs of Moher on that day but I think he will do well to win the Irish equivalent.  The Epsom Derby was
