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...

When it comes to trying to sum up the impact of a tournament on the worldwide popularity of a sport, it is never easy to gauge the way the public have taken to an event, and harder still when the media are working hard to push said event. Sometimes the people who sell papers, or maybe that should be click chasers these day,  work so hard to promote something that […]

Wimbledon men: and then there were three…

July 5, 2015

The first week of Wimbledon is normally just an orgy of bagels, busters and big wins for players warming up with a title in mind, but Rafa Nadal is not one to tread the usual path. Clearly frustrated with the conformist and predictable way the likes of Andy Murray and Roger Federer were winning their matches, the Spaniard decided to spice things up with a loss to Dustin Brown and […]

Silverstone 2015: Get Lewis

July 4, 2015

It is the weekend of the 4th of July, and we all know what that means. Across the globe, freedom-loving petrolheads will celebrate another edition of the Silverstone Grand Prix, clearly the most important anniversary of the weekend. For fans in England there has been even more excitement and media silliness that on the usual race weekend, and while initially that would seem logical in some ways it shouldn’t really […]

England women: Winning in style?

July 2, 2015

As much as it is the word of the day, this article will strive to omit all primary uses of the word ‘inspirational’ in describing the England women’s football team, cringeworthily nicknamed ‘the Lionesses’. That already disqualifies this article from the BBC, of course, but they are the sacrifices you have to make when you decide to write what you think, not what you think the public wants to read. […]

Messi: No debate

July 1, 2015

Depending on your age, you may or may not have heard of a fictional character called Viktor Krum. He appears as a magical sporting star in one of the Harry Potter books, and his unusual name is a product of JK Rowling’s need to signpost ever character and their intentions from minute one. Krum is foreign, dark and moody, so he gets the K in his first name, but he […]

Cheating: The Chilean effect

June 30, 2015

Today, with all the terrible things we see attached to and associated with professional sport, it can be hard to distinguish between the things we should be up in arms about and those issues that are best left to be dealt with privately. Sometimes, such as the example of the Leicester City players racially abusing women they’d hired to have sex with or Malky Mackay racially abusing an entire nation, […]
