Epsom Derby & Oaks Online Preview

Marten's Current Racing Diary | May 23rd, 2017

We are fast approaching my favourite, and historically, most successful meeting of the year. Epsom may not be to everyone’s taste, but my record since I first started to go racing there in my teens has been better than for … Continued

Thiem a rising star

Ian Carnaby's Sports News | May 20th, 2017

The championship play-off semi-finals did not work out as I expected, although no one can comprehend how Fulham failed to overcome reading in the second leg at the Madjeski. I find the final against Huddersfield very difficult to call and … Continued

Ribchester the star on Fahey day?

Ian Carnaby's Racing News | May 20th, 2017

York for me rested largely with Muntadab in the sprint handicap on Wednesday. He did everything I expected but was caught late on by a 25/1 outsider, which hurt. He is not the luckiest of horses and will be hard … Continued

The Epsom Picture

Marten's Current Racing Diary | May 14th, 2017

I wasn’t surprised to see Sobetsu win the Prix Saint-Alary at Deauville this afternoon. Apart from Coronet she was the filly that most interested me, having impressed when winning her maiden by 10 lengths at Newmarket last September before finding … Continued

Owls for top flight return…

Ian Carnaby's Sports News | May 13th, 2017

Punters experience very few miracles in the long battle against the old enemy but Newcastle overhauling Brighton by virtue of a ten-man Aston Villa equaliser was one such. They were the star nap bet of the season and I hope … Continued

Kelvingrove may follow up…

Ian Carnaby's Racing News | May 13th, 2017

It was good to see Henry Candy’s Queen Of Time going in at Goodwood last week, the bonus being the price because even money was available against poor opposition before she closed in to 4/5. Stable-companion Vibrant Chords also won … Continued

The 2,000 Guineas Verdict

Marten's Current Racing Diary | May 11th, 2017

I suppose a victory for Churchill, advised at 8/1, with Barney Roy second, advised each-way at 5/1, was the perfect result for the Weekend Card ante-post feature even though the race left me feeling a little underwhelmed. As you are … Continued

Liverpool may cut loose here…

Ian Carnaby's Sports News | May 6th, 2017

LIVERPOOL MAY CUT LOOSE HERE Tottenham made an excellent fight of it in the Premier League but Friday’s surprising defeat at West Ham has all but handed the title to Chelsea. Although I thought Spurs would keep up the pressure … Continued

Bryan’s claim may make the difference

Ian Carnaby's Racing News | May 6th, 2017

Although I was disappointed with El Vip last week, this was so clearly not his running that I think we shall recoup later in the season. Any line involving Oh This Is Us is very smart handicap form and I’m … Continued

A Vintage 2,000 Guineas …

Marten's Current Racing Diary | May 2nd, 2017

I have to say that I am really excited by this year’s 2,000 Guineas. We have had some truly sensational winners of the race in past years, none more so than Frankel in 2011, while I can remember El Gran … Continued
