Swansea seemingly without a prayer…

Ian Carnaby's Sports News | August 18th, 2017

Last week’s update did not take for some reason, though there was no great loss because Southampton failed to score against Swansea, as did Bournemouth at West Brom. The match at St Mary’s was extraordinary and routine at one and … Continued

Growl and Right Touch a powerful Fahey team…

Ian Carnaby's Racing News | August 18th, 2017

I’m not quite sure what happened last week but the Friday update did not take. In fact there was no disaster in this because the main selection was Lexington Abbey in the opener on Shergar Cup day and he could … Continued

York Ebor Promises So Much

Makzeem handily weighted here

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

As predicted, Richard Fahey won the Weatherbys Super Sprint. The 12/1 chance Bengali Boys was not widely tipped but the point is that you have to cover everything because Fahey is a master when it comes to picking up bargains … Continued

Gigginstown Shuffle The Pack Again …

Marten's Current Racing Diary | July 28th, 2017

I have never met Michael O’Leary or anyone from Gigginstown Stud but they are evidently quite hard to please. Following the fall-out with Willie Mullins last season the news broke today that Bryan Cooper will no longer be riding as … Continued

Murray has a point to prove
