Cliffs Of Moher must bounce back from Epsom disappointment

Cliffs Of Moher must bounce back from Epsom disappointment   Cliffs Of Moher was the leading contender to claim his first major crown at the Epsom Downs following an impressive start to his fledgling career. The Irish horse had won two of his three races ahead of the event and was considered the favourite to win the Investec Derby, with Ryan Moore in the saddle. Aidan O’Brien sent six horses to compete in the race, and although Cliffs of Moher was the spearhead of his challenge for the crown, the three-year-old was beaten out for the crown. Rank outsider Wings of Eagles rose to the occasion with a flawless performance to defeat his stablemate, clinching only the second win of his career. The result was a disappointment for Cliffs Of Moher and Moore, although he […]


Charlie McCann of BetVictor.com with Thursday’s best bets

Charlie McCann of BetVictor.com with Thursday’s best bets   The brilliant filly Enable is the 11/10 favourite with BetVictor for the Arc de Triomphe at Chantilly on the first Sunday in October after the comprehensive defeats of leading French challengers Almanzor and Brametot at Deauville on Tuesday. A deadly virus ravaged Jean-Claude Rouget’s stable back in the spring, and the handler didn’t sound optimistic post-race that we would see Almanzor, his brilliant Irish and Ascot Champions Stakes winner, back on the track. Today’s feature is the Gp 3 Sovereign Stakes at Salisbury and Carry On Deryck (4.20) can make a belated winning reappearance for Saeed Bin Suroor. The selection has an excellent record fresh and finished last turf season with an excellent second in a similar contest at Newmarket back in October. Today’s stiff mile […]


Charlie McCann assesses Wednesday’s best bets

Charlie McCann assesses Wednesday’s best bets Saturday’s Geoffrey Freer Stakes at Newbury is one of the weekend highlights and there is little rain forecast at the Berkshire track between now and post time. That will suit BetVictor’s 5/2 market leader Frontiersman although marginal preference at this stage is for the three-year-old Defoe (11/4 at BetVictor) who has won all three starts this term and is 14/1 for the final classic of the season at Doncaster next term. Jump racing is back after its 10-day sabbatical at Newton Abbot and Curious Carlos will have his supporters with James Bowen taking off a valuable 10lbs but Aidan Coleman is a positive booking for Coeur Tantre (3.00) having his first start for Anthony Honeyball. The selection is also fitted with cheek-pieces for the first time this afternoon, and […]


Brexit’s Effect on Irish Horse Racing

Brexit’s Effect on Irish Horse Racing Brexit is impacting many countries, and Ireland’s horse racing economy is bracing itself. Ireland, known for foaling and training horses, may soon see a tremendous impact on its economy. Without the mainland route through Europe for trade, there’s a very good chance that the Irish and UK trade market will falter. In fact, it’s expected to have a huge impact on Irish horse racing for this very reason. A Huge Industry for Ireland The horse racing and breeding industries are important to Ireland’s economy. In fact, it brings in roughly €1 billion every year, a small but substantial percentage of the country’s €189 billion economy, according to Horse Racing Ireland, which serves as the nation’s authority for thoroughbred racing. Henry Beeby, who is the chief executive of Goff’s, the […]


Charlie McCann of BetVictor.com is looking to plunder the bookie’s satchels on Tuesday

Charlie McCann of BetVictor.com is looking to plunder the bookie’s satchels on Tuesday Aidan O’Brien won a 16th Gp 1 Phoenix Stakes at the Curragh with Sioux Nation on Sunday although I’m not convinced about his ability to get a mile next term. I certainly wouldn’t, at this stage, be looking to support him for the 2018 2000 Guineas where he is 20/1 (from 25s) at BetVictor and, as a son of Scat Daddy, he may always need fast ground to be seen at his best. There are more showers forecast for Thirsk this afternoon where the ground was already described as good to soft ahead of their eight-race card. Nathalie (3.00) has improved steadily if not dramatically in her three starts but she is taken to land the 12f maiden for James Fanshawe and […]


The weekend’s action previewed by Charlie McCann of BetVictor.com

The weekend’s action previewed by Charlie McCann of BetVictor.com Glorious Goodwood has been a bit of a damp squib so far this week although the brilliant Nassau Stakes winner Winter (6/1 from 12s at BetVictor for the Juddmonte International) and unbeaten juvenile Expert Eye (4s from 6s for the 2018 Guineas) have certainly brightened up events on the soggy track. The big betting race of the day today is the Stewards’ Cup and Donjuan Triumphant (3.35) is taken to round off what has been a fantastic week for the Andrew Balding stable. The selection should be fresh and well following a three-month break and looks to have been laid-out for the race by the yard who won the corresponding race last year courtesy of 9/2 favourite Dancing Star. The selection is 20/1 at BetVictor and […]
