  • Racing Tips November 17

    By on 16th November 2019

    HAPPY DIVA was a 16/1 winning NAP for myself and members of VG Tips on Saturday. The SP price of 14/1 was still great value for a mare I was confident would be involved in the finish of the feature race of the day, the competitive Grade 3 Bet Victor Gold Cup Handicap Chase.

    Thank you to all those subscribers who sent me messages of joy. I am still catching up with them. What pleases me most about these is that it is clear many members of VG Tips do what I ask. Namely . . .

  • Racing goes ahead at Cheltenham on Saturday. Friday was lost to a waterlogged track but plenty of hard work by the Clerk of the Course and his staff have ensured that only minor alterations have been made to the obstacles for Saturday and Sunday.

    Trainers need this meeting to go ahead and get a run into their better horses as prep for the Cheltenham Festival next March. It's also needed for us punters to get a look at those who are likely to be aimed at bigger races later in the season, not only at Cheltenham.

    Watching the racing . . .

  • Domestic action in the top leagues takes a back seat again over the next few days as it's once again time for the Euro 2020 qualifying games.

    The home nations all have important matches over the coming days. Wales, Scotland and England will all be seeking to do well. England manager Gareth Southgate has been criticised by some for dropping Raheem Sterling from the England squad to play Montenegro on Thursday.

    It seems the Manchester City striker was involved in a dust up with Joe Gomez at the England training ground. A continuation of a dispute they had when . . .

  • Cheltenham Racing Friday November 15 OFF

    By on 13th November 2019

    Hello one and all,

    For those who are not following me on Twitter @betonsportstips and have therefore not seen my alert regarding racing at Cheltenham on Friday...
    the meeting is OFF!

    This is a great disappointment to me, to punters everywhere and to those who own, train and ride the horses. The November meeting at Prestbury Park is the one that gives us clues as to which horses may peak come Christmas at Kempton Park, or the Cheltenham Festival next March.

    After a deluge of rain on Wednesday and overnight into Thursday, I am not surprised Cheltenham is . . .

  • Racing Tips November 9 and 10

    It is perhaps ironic that the last decent flat meeting of the season has been abandoned due to a waterlogged racecourse. A shame for those who run Doncaster but clearly, after the rainfall in South Yorkshire on Thursday, there was no way racing could take place tomorrow.

    The National Hunt meetings had better go ahead. As per usually for a Friday, I have spent literally all day studying the form for three jump meetings. Two in England and one in Ireland, plus there is some decent racing on Sunday.

    After 11 hours of studying the racing for the next two . . .

  • Valued member of VG Tips Jamie has, like me, been cursing the odd result of late. A Barnsley equaliser deep into injury time last weekend prevented us being paid out on a Bristol City win. Then, only last night, Manchester City failed to win their second meeting with Atalanta, so bringing down my football accumulator that was otherwise going well.

    As mentioned in my preview write up earlier in the week, there was always a chance Pep Guardiola would send a weakened squad to Italy. Having said that, on paper at least, the Manchester City team that began that game . . .

  • Racing Tips November 7

    By on 6th November 2019

    Luck. It's a word that is no stranger to all those who have ever had a flutter on football or horse racing.

    Years ago I recall offering two double figure each way tips in a competitive jumps race. Coming to the last fence, we were going to collect. The only question would be which of my two would win and which would come second. They were so far clear of the third horse you couldn't see that one on the television screen. The 33/1 and 16/1 tips approached the last obstacle tired, but clearly one of . . .

  • If I hear another debate about VAR I will not be responsible for my actions. I am sick of seeing it. Weary of hearing about it. Only last week I wrote about this on the VG Tips website (where all opinion content is free for anyone to read). What happens last weekend? More VAR controversy.

    A player is about to be shown a yellow card for a fairly ordinary foul, a tackle from behind. The ref sees the horrific injury to the fouled player . . .
