A very stiff task for Hull

Ian Carnaby's Sports News | April 29th, 2017

Both of last week’s selections came up to add another winning week to what has been a successful punting season. There is even a chance that Newcastle will still top the Championship table following their easy win at Cardiff on … Continued

El Vip primed for this

Ian Carnaby's Racing News | April 29th, 2017

Sometimes you simply have to let a horse go and I shall not be chasing losses following Shui Feng’s poor effort in the Newbury Spring Cup last week. Perhaps he is slightly better on the all-weather these days but I … Continued

Barney Roy … A Great Prospect

Marten's Current Racing Diary | April 24th, 2017

I was most impressed by the manner of Barney Roy’s victory in Saturday’s Greenham Stakes. There was good late money for the son of Excelebration, who had made a winning debut over a mile at Haydock last September. Following that … Continued

Forest must pick up here

Ian Carnaby's Sports News | April 21st, 2017

If you’re going to be wrong you might as well be thumpingly so. This has been a good season for us but Manchester City outclassed Southampton last week and looked quite superb at times. I’m not sure I’ve ever seen … Continued

Shui Feng can go close at a price

Ian Carnaby's Racing News | April 21st, 2017

I seldom talk about luck where betting is concerned because there is simply no point; you just have to hope that things will even themselves out over a period of time. So I shall just say that Tom Marquand will … Continued

Classic Observations

Marten's Current Racing Diary | April 21st, 2017

There were Classic clues aplenty at Newmarket this week and this afternoon at Newbury. I realised that John Gosden had a host of talented three-year-olds when writing my Dark Horses Annual a few weeks ago and after a sluggish start … Continued

Palace can win again

Ian Carnaby's Sports News | April 14th, 2017

I suppose I went out on a limb when taking Crystal Palace to beat Arsenal last Monday but betting is all about value and, having watched them at Southampton, I felt quite strongly that 15/4 was way too big. Arsenal … Continued

Aldeburgh still in good heart

Ian Carnaby's Racing News | April 14th, 2017

It was a good Grand National day for us, although Saint Are was much bigger than 25/1 a few days before the famous old marathon took place. He is a tough sort but fated not to win the race after … Continued

Aintree Reflections

Marten's Current Racing Diary | April 9th, 2017

Following the misfortune and bad luck at Cheltenham, with a host of seconds and thirds at very long prices, normal service was resumed at Aintree last week with a good profit for my clients. On Thursday my main selection was … Continued

Baggies & Saints can end all square…

Ian Carnaby's Sports News | April 8th, 2017

Last week was another profitable one with Liverpool accounting for Everton in the Merseyside derby. I believe they will go on to finish in the top four in the Premier league, together with Chelsea and Tottenham, but the fourth place … Continued
