Although we are only in September, and there are months before the Grand National takes place in April 2020, the news we have all been waiting for has finally been confirmed. Tiger Roll, the horse that has lit up Aintree Racecourse when winning the race for the past two seasons will head back to Liverpool […]

There are few occasions when horse racing and politics meet. But should a Labour government win power in the coming months then we are likely to see a clash between the two. Labour unveiled a new manifesto a couple of weeks ago. It is a 50-point plan to deal with animal welfare and horse racing. […]

The Grand National is one of the most exciting times to be a horse racing fan. The cream of the crop, the best racing horses from all over the country compete with each other. The million-pound prize pool inflames the spirit of competition, making it one of the most thrilling races to watch and bet […]

I spend quite a lot of time loing at the news, potential runners and ante-post odds for the Grand National 2020. So I found it interesting when Burrows Saint was added to the betting market.

Knowing the trends and factoring them into your betting equation is an important part of turning the odds in your favor, whether it be horse racing or wagering in general. Those who are new to the process may have a particularly hard time trying to beat the boies, but the comforting thought is that although […]

There are some pundits who are synonymous with a specific sport. And for horse racing, it was John McCririck. Known for his over the top manneri and flamboyant sense of style, McCririck was the face of racing in the UK and even used it as a platform to dabble in some reality tv shows along […]

When it comes to the Grand National, few winners endear themselves to the public as much as Tiger Roll has. In fact, I doubt any other horse has had the same amount of media coverage either. And it didn’t take owner, Michael O’Leary, to nip the prospect of ‘three-in-a-row’ in the bud, following his epic […]

Last season produced some epic wins and breakout stars for National Hunt racing. Who can forget Tiger Roll’s emphatic back-to-back win in the Grand National?
