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...

Lewis
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...

It’s been emotional…

August 26, 2015

Well, after many years, posts, positive/angry comments and opinions, it looks as though Bet123 is no more, and this is our last interaction as writer and reader on these terms. It’s always hard to be happy when something you’ve enjoyed comes to an end, but there are times when life gives you roses, and others when it is massive, consecutive piles of guano on your doorstep, and you have to treat […]

Bolt and Blatter: cleanliness is next to godliness

August 24, 2015
Usain Bolt

As Terry Pratchett once noted, in the modern world cleanliness rarely appears next to godliness, except in the most severely-abridged of dictionaries, but there may still be one place where being keen to be clean will ensure your survival. In sport, the word can have a subtly different definition depending on the area it is being used for, but there are few if any areas these days that openly celebrate being […]

Arsenal v Liverpool, 24/8/15

Last weekend, as City and Chelsea clashed in a game that could have serious ramifications in terms of the outcome of the league this season, the commentator mused that the match had maybe come too early to be really meaningful, but we all know that’s not true. Regardless of the stage of the season managers know that when playing their direct rivals the +/- on points is always vital, and […]

F1: Spa 2015

For all that it is a special track with a lot of history, last year Spa could essentially be summed up with the words ‘Nico hit me’, at least according to the BBC F1 section. The fact Daniel Ricciardo won the event or Valtteri Bottas finishing third didn’t interest Andrew Benson apparently, as they wouldn’t afford him a chance to write about his hero Lewis Hamilton, but it is unfair […]

England in France: World Cup 2015 warmup

Games of rugby between France and England are hardly a rare occurrence, but this weekend and last have seen a couple of the most meaningful friendlies in a long time between the two nations as they both prepare for the World Cup in England later in the year. Last weekend England either clutched out a 19-14 win or got lucky after failing to convert their dominance into a more emphatic […]

Ashes 2015: 5th test

Despite the fact they were owned in a way not seen since the original convicts were shipped out to Australia, and would most likely prefer just to go home and drown their sorrows in a pint of Radler, the Aussie national cricket team still have one more obligation to fulfil, at The Oval. This match is also the last Michael Clarke will play at this level, and that is the […]
