Ian Carnaby's Sports News | January 13th, 2018

Breaking your own rules is often costly when it comes to betting and the FA Cup did me no favours last weekend, Watford’s easy victory against an overburdened Bristol City the only correct call. At least I managed to avoid … Continued

Viserion chooses Kempton

Ian Carnaby's Racing News | January 13th, 2018

It was good to see Poppy Kay landing the main bet last week and I hope there will be several more to follow from the Philip Hobbs stable as we move towards the Cheltenham festival. I think the stable is … Continued

Brentford can shine on a tricky day

Ian Carnaby's Sports News | January 6th, 2018

I admit right from the outset that I am not a big fan of betting on the FA Cup, the main problem being the commitment (or lack of it) where some clubs are concerned. Having watched the Southampton v Crystal … Continued

Poppy Kay finds a listed opportunity

Ian Carnaby's Racing News | January 6th, 2018

All being well, Chepstow stages the postponed Coral Welsh National on Saturday. It goes without saying the ground will be very testing and in recent years I’ve often thought that relatively few horses get home over nearly three and three-quarter … Continued

Cheltenham Ante-Post Opportunities

Marten's Current Racing Diary | January 5th, 2018

Ian Carnaby's Racing News | December 30th, 2017

At this stage there is not much point in going into detail where Saturday’s racing is concerned; all we can do is wait and see what the weather does and take it from there. The going will be bottomless if … Continued

Villa v Sheffield United most informative

Ian Carnaby's Sports News | December 22nd, 2017

We showed a 26 points’ profit last week, thanks to Everton and Cardiff. The minor punt on Bournemouth against Liverpool was shot to pieces but I don’t regret that. Eddie Howe’s players are better than they showed there and were … Continued

Man Of Plenty not out of it at 50s

Ian Carnaby's Racing News | December 22nd, 2017

Although the ill-starred Starchitect would have won the Caspian Caviar Gold Cup but for his fatal injury, it was hard not to feel for Clan Des Obeaux, who worked hard over an inadequate trip and finally hit the front, only … Continued

No stopping Everton now

Ian Carnaby's Sports News | December 15th, 2017

Doing well in the Premier League is all about knowing the requirements. An obvious thing to say, of course, but a point lost on Southampton’s Mauricio Pellegrino, who thought that good containing and counter-attacking displays against Man City and Arsenal … Continued
