Frankel ridden by Tom Queally wins 25/9/2010
Let’s Be Frank, He’s Right Up There - Frankel will go down as one of the best horses we have ever seen in Flat racing and given the fact we are two years on from his final race – which was the QIPCO Champion Stakes at Ascot – we feel as though it’s time to look back on a quite incredible career.

Trained by the late, great Sir Henry Cecil, Frankel was the kind of horse that people felt privileged to watch and he was the kind of horse that people felt privileged to watch and he was unbeaten over 14 starts, something that we might not see again. We first saw him back in 2010 and it wasn’t a surprise to see him... Read on...

The Suarez incident: v3 - This isn’t the first time we’ve had to try and make sense of a bite from Luis Suarez here in the UK, or even here at Bet123 Towers for that matter, and the prevailing opinion around the world of sport psychology seems to be that there is a good chance it won’t be the last either, but if you know the history of the man and his teeth understanding why he’s done what he has gets harder each time.

The first instance of a bite in his career may have been in some ways justified, if not entirely as he was under attack from an opposition player stamping on his toes in an effort to injure him, but since then each incident of jaw locking has seemed less and less explicable, to the point where...

Silverstone and Tweety-pie - The term ‘home race’ is thrown around more liberally in Formula One than football fans and so on would expect, and in reality a large number of teams are based in fairly small part of the UK, a part that Top Gear likes to talk about from time to time, somewhere in some hills near where Jeremy Clarkson lives most likely, although not near enough to lower house prices for him or his influential neighbours.

As a result the Silverstone Grand Prix has become quite an important one for a lot of teams in an unofficial capacity, although there is one man looking to claim this not only as the most important race of his own season but also his proper home race, and that man is... Read on...

Harry’s last stand?

July 28, 2014

At this point, before the season has started or the transfer-window has closed, it seems unfair to pick out potential candidates for relegation from the 2014/15 Barclays Premier League, but it was that or more Commonwealth Games, so here we are. In fact, picking out three sides seems to be nearly impossible unless you just go with the standard ‘last in, first out’ policy, but it’s certainly possible to look […]

Quick thinking

July 27, 2014

There was a moment in one of the long and occasionally interesting string of interviews the BBC used to break up their highlights of qualifying at the Hungarian Grand Prix where interchangeable Formula 1 guy number 3 ask Nico Rosberg if he was not bothered by the comments his team mate was making because the two are good friends away from the track. Rosberg paused for a minute as though […]

FA fails

July 26, 2014

“If you look at who’s supporting, who’s playing football, and then you look at the FA Council – it doesn’t represent them. It’s still overwhelmingly male, overwhelmingly white in a world that isn’t overwhelmingly male and white, and somehow that has to be changed. We have to try and change it but we’re not alone, supporters have got to try and change it as well.”   Those words came from […]

F1: Hungarian GP 2014

July 25, 2014

After last weekend was supposed to end the same way it started and didn’t, it is fair to say Formula 1 is confusing a few fans and casual spectators by being rather more interesting than is expected, and that can’t be a bad thing overall. Admittedly the crash Lewis Hamilton suffered in practice played a big part in creating the tension and ultimately the overtaking that made the Sunday such […]

Common interests

Ah, the summer of sporting wonder is still going, and to the delight of many it has come all the way across the channel and made its way up to Glasgow in Scotland, where the Commonwealth Games are currently being held. Well, when we say ‘to the delight of many’ that may be a slight exaggeration, as a lot of people weren’t even aware the games are on and some […]

Where’s your head at?

July 23, 2014

Sometimes the luck just doesn’t seem to be with a driver and they appear to have a magnet in their car, specially designed to attract carbon fibre and poor fortunes in equal measure, but the line between having no luck and being a liability is a fine one at the best of times. Drivers like Romain Grosjean and Pastor Maldonado have fallen foul in recent years of the gentlemanly nature […]
