Taunton Horse Racing Speed Ratings – 2 April 2015


We look to the Racing Post for today’s horse racing speed ratings free. Taunton Racecourse is set to host a number of excellent races on Thursday 2 April, when the going will be good to firm.

The first two races of the day feature packed fields of 21 runners, making it tougher to find a result, which is why you should focus on the 15:20 Handicap Chase instead. There will be just 12 runners aged five years older.

Green Du Ciel is the horse that stands out for speed, with a 107 rating. That places the horse ahead of To The Sky on a 104 rating. Meanwhile, Sportsreport and All But Grey are level on 102.

You should take pause before falling for Green Du Ciel’s top rating. From those four horses, All But Grey has the highest Racing Post Rating, with 117. Green Du Ciel is currently on 113.

Exeter Horse Racing Results – 31 March 2015


Exeter Racecourse enjoyed a pleasant end to March, with sunny spells allowing for the conditions to be good (good to soft for the 14:00). In all, there were seven races for punters to enjoy.

The 14:40 Novices Selling Hurdle saw Rocky Rebel at 4/1 upset favourite Murtys Delight at 2/1. Another favourite was upset in the 14:35 Challenge Cup Handicap Hurdle, where Party Palace at 9/1 won ahead of Risk A Fine at 3/1.

England Draw in Football Internationals – 31 March 2015


Tuesday night gave us a number of fascinating results in the yesterday match results. After drubbing Lithuania 4-0 in Euro 2016 Qualifying, the Three Lions fell a goal behind to Italy in the 28th minute. However, they did manage to turn it around with an equaliser in the 78th minute from Andros Townsend. That match finished as a 1-1 stalemate.

There was keen interest in the post-World Cup rematch between the Netherlands and Spain. After losing 5-1 in Brazil, the Spaniards improved slightly to lose just 2-0. The goals came in the 12th and 15th minutes. Dutch head coach Guus Hiddink will have won over many fans with this performance.

Portugal produced yet another erratic display when they somehow lost 2-0 at home to Cape Verde. The goals came in the 37th and 43rd minutes. Portugal then lost Andre Pinto to a red card in the 60th minute, rounding off a disappointing night.
