The Secret Race: Book Review of William Hills Sports book of year.

William Hill Sportsbook of Year: The Secret Race.

Always like to read the William Hill Sportsbook of the year, known as the “bookies” prize instead of similar sounding Booker prize!

SeaBiscuit was amazing and much much better than the slightly saccharine film version. For one thing the book acknowledged the progressive functional alcoholism of Red Pollard, the true recounting death of Gary Woolfe was tear jerking.… Read More…

WillHill Weekend Football Acca

Will Hill

The following football teams are all best priced with Will Hill and should be put in a lucky 15.

Newcastle 13/5

West Brom 13/5

Aberdeen 9/5

Queen of the South 6/5


The accumulator should reap a great return, the prices are likely to be snapped up so probably best to log onto Hill’s site Friday evening, Saturday morning at the latest.… Read More…

Hereford man wins £71,000 FOOTBALL JACKPOT from Coral.


Jim Wyatt, a 54 year old married man from Hereford, has won £71,037.40 for just a £1 bet on Coral’s ‘Football Jackpot’ after correctly predicting the results of thirteen football matches.

The first twelve matches took place over Saturday and Sunday, and the final match to determine whether Jim Wyatt’s bet would win took place last night with Wyatt requiring Preston to beat Oldham for his bet to be successful.… Read More…

Irish Greyhound Derby shown on Sky channel 212

Shelbourne dog stadium

Good news, firstly one of my local racetracks (Towcester) is again talking about opening a greyhound track, having originally been scheduled for August. Am with friends in the restaurant watching the horses on the Thurs 7th of Nov, perhaps the spades will be at work digging the foundations?

Also good to see that the Irish Dog Derby can be watched on the box this year.… Read More…

Wimbledon Dogs lose another Trainer

There doesn’t seem much positive news around Wimbledon dogs now days. The latest blow to the track is Phil Simmonds quiting the training ranks to take up with Coral Romford. He joins the exodus that included long standing Norah McElistrum who jumped ship for Coral Romford.

The fact of the matter is that Wimbledon has no BAGS contract, is financially insecure and is owned by a company who is intent on selling for property gains.… Read More…

Will Hill Shop Customers getting ripped off on prices!

Experienced punters don’t make frequent expeditions into betting shops, but it’s worth specifically warning bettors against the shocking value offered by William Hill when compared to their competitive online offering. In short betting shop coupon punters are getting ripped off with inferior prices to those offered online: “mugging the mugs”!

Take for example this weekends long list (Internationals so no Premiership).… Read More…

WillHill World Cup Qualifiers Value Treble.

King Canute

King Canute tried to hold back the tide.  The result? Wet feet!

This evening Will Hill seem to be doing the same thing by chalking up 1/12 when other firms have probably got it right with a more prohibitive price of 1/20.

England were perhaps flattered by 5-0 on the away fixture, helped by an early Lampard goal opening the floodgates, however I can’t see them not knocking at least 3 goals past the underdogs this evening.  The press has made a song and dance about the fact that the real focus is on the Ulkraine game, however it’s worth bearing in mind that Roy Hodgson’s career won’t survive a defeat this evening so expect a smash up job.… Read More…

Betfred Best Priced International World Cup Punt.

I have to say, compared to the day to day excitement of the Premiership and La Liga International’s always seem to pale into insignificance, in no small part because some many of them are uncompetitive, invariably there is often a very very short odds on shot that to most punters makes very little appeal.

Looking through the long list for tonight there are 1/50 and 1/100 shots.… Read More…

Gambling firms listed on the Stock Market.

As a bit of a giggle I like to do a bit of investment in shares in the betting sphere.


My day job is working as a supplier to iGaming (do recruitment) and often get to have a look around the offices of gambling firms as well as of course spending large parts of the working day on the phone to people who work in the online betting industry.… Read More…

Sky Dogs Banker for TV Trophy

In the Racing Post daily quiz the other day a question was “which is the UK’s furthest East [horse]racetrack”? Iopted for Fakenham, having stayed on the seaside at Cromer when I went racing there last summer. However I was wrong, the answer is Yarmouth. I can only presume that Yarmouth is also the furthest east NGRC track.

Anyhow geographical debates aside the Sky Greyhounds circus visits Yarmouth this evening, not for the tracks showcase East Anglian Derby, but for the ever popular marathon contest the TV Trophy.… Read More…
