Football Results from Yesterday in the Championship


The football results from Yesterday in the Championship were very interesting indeed, proving just how appealing the league can be for putting together winning accumulators. The following preview is for all Championship matches on Tuesday 3 March 2015.

Entering Tuesday night as league-leaders on 65 points, Steve McLaren’s Derby County needed to win away against 20th-placed Brighton. But the Rams slumped to a clear 2-0 defeat and were subsequently ousted from the top spot. And the club responsible for ousting Derby were Aitor Karanka’s Middlesbrough, who beat Millwall in a convincing 3-0 victory to climb a point ahead of Derby.

Elsewhere in the table, Watford and Bournemouth climbed to third and fourth, respectively, at the expense of Norwich City. However, Norwich will have a chance to reclaim their position in their next game against Wigan Athletic. Lastly, Brentford moved into the final playoff spot with a 4-1 win over Huddersfield.

Exeter Racecourse 3 March – UK Horse Racing Results


Exeter Racecourse had an exciting slate of races scheduled for Tuesday 3 March, attracting a competitive field of entrants out to win a share of the prize money. Here is your brief roundup of the key news from those UK horse racing results.

Out of the various races, the Devon National Handicap Chase proved enticing, with a pot of £11,077.50 up for grabs. Running at 15:30, the race was ranked as Class 3. By the end of the race, it was Catching On, ridden by Wayne Hutchinson and trained by Jonjo O’Neil, who won the race with odds of 11/2.

For outsider of the day, we have to look to the Ken Graham 70th Birthday Novices’ Hurdle at 16:30, which was a Class 4 affair. Incredibly, 100/30 long-shot Chosen Well managed to finish ahead of the highly favoured Local Show at 4/1. Finishing in third place was Great Choice at 5/4.

Cheltenham Festival 2015 – Free Horse Racing Naps


We are at last entering the golden period of the UK horse racing season. And the first of the marque events is the 2015 Cheltenham Festival, which will run next week from Tuesday 11 to Friday 14 March. Ahead of the event, we have discovered a couple of free horse racing naps from Simon Panting of the Huffington Post that are well worth checking out.

Starting with the first race of the festival, which is the Supreme Novices Hurdle, Panting has identified Irish horse Douvan as the prime tip. At odds of approximately 7/4, Douvan has already won twice over hurdles this season, making the five-year-old a hot prospect.

Un De Sceaux is another horse to watch out for, but yet to be entered in a specific race. However, you cannot let this tip pass you by, as Un De Sceaux earned a fifth victory over Irish hurdles in January at Leopardstown.
