The entries for the 2020 Grand National will not be announced until next year. But one can safely assume that if Tiger Roll is deemed eligible to race by his owner, then he will once again be the main favourite. Tiger Roll won two consecutive Grand Nationals and he is the first winner to have […]

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? Or Irish trainer Willie Mullins finally winning his first Cheltenham Gold Cup? Paul Nicholls may have pipped Nicky Henderson to the Jumps Trainer title but Dan Skelton was hot on […]

If you’re not even mildly familiar with horse racing, you have probably still heard of the Kentucky Derby. You may have even heard of the Triple Crown.

Just as many people thought, Aidan O’Brien dominated the Epsom Derby on Saturday. Although it perhaps wasn’t with the winning horse that many people had at the top of their list. O’Brien ran seven horses in the 13 runner race, giving him over half field. Remarkably he had five of the first six home in […]

The last season has only just ended, but punters are already counting down the days until the new jumps campaign begins. While the flat season takes place, it is a perfect opportunity for the trainers, horses, and punters to take a moment and relax ahead of the next jumps season. However, training will soon begin […]

Michael O’Leary, the owner of Giggsinstown Stud, made an incredible announcement this week. His Gigginstown operation will wind down over the next five years as the O’Leary’s bid farewell to the racing world. It is a bombshell of epic proportions. Not least because of its financial implications on the racing world. O’Leary plans to phase […]

It hasn’t gone unnoticed that the viewing figures for the Grand National have been sliding in recent years. The initial switch of coverage from the BBC to Channel 4 was met with some skepticism. Over the course of three years, from 2013 – 2015 the channel pulled in viewers totaling 8.9m, 8.5m and 8.8m respectively. […]

No sooner had the last Grand National ended and bomakers were already offering odds on the Grand National 2020. Even crazier are the 8/1 ante-post odds that they are currently giving on Tiger Roll. Despite the fact that he might not even run, or the top weight he will most likely be given, those odds […]

No sooner had his feet touched the ground following another epic win in the Punchestown Gold Cup and racing legend, Ruby Walsh, announced his retirement. Arguably one of the greatest jockeys alive, Walsh’s career accomplishments are nothing short of exhausting. Holding the record at Cheltenham, he has been the lead jockey at the Festival 11 […]
