Teething problems with a solution

Rebecca's Spotlight | May 31st, 2018

In June 2017 I started work on our new online shop and My account area. My main objective was to offer immediate downloads for our clients. This means if one of our services is available and you order it you … Continued

GDPR & how I look after our clients

Rebecca's Spotlight | May 23rd, 2018

Dare I say the words that everyone must be fed up of hearing about… GDPR or Data Protection? When I read things about GDPR I feel like we have been compliant with it before it even existed. Over the past … Continued

Epsom Derby & Oaks Services

Marten's Current Racing Diary | May 23rd, 2018

The Epsom Derby & Oaks Online Preview Hi there! Epsom may not be to everyone’s taste but for me it has been a triumph over the years, yielding a profit to level stakes for the Online Preview every season. This … Continued

It’s crystal clear – Stoute all the way

Ian Carnaby's Racing News | May 19th, 2018

A bonus last week arrived with Intisaab’s SP of 11/4. I thought he was something to bet on in the Class 2 conditions event at Haydock but imagined he’d start favourite. In fact the bookmakers were more interested in Dancing … Continued

A good opportunity for Intisaab

Ian Carnaby's Racing News | May 12th, 2018

We were right in the first place to prefer Wild Illusion to Soliloquy in the 1,000 Guineas, although it hardly mattered because he finished only fourth. Godolphin were winning just about everything else (five winners over the weekend) but the … Continued

Swansea up against it now

Ian Carnaby's Sports News | May 4th, 2018

This is the time of the season when betting firms allow title/promotion/relegation issues to affect football prices. Having watched Southampton right through a troubled campaign I could not possibly make them favourites at Everton, yet the hosts can be backed … Continued

Fahey looks keen on this

Ian Carnaby's Racing News | May 4th, 2018

Last week worked out all right, given that Jallota was a non-runner at Leicester, Altior won at a hopeless price and Call Me Lord ran away with the Select Hurdle at Sandown, emphasising just how moderate the staying hurdle division … Continued
