Liverpool Humiliated in Final Premier League Weekend


Steven Gerrard had to suffer the humiliation of a 5-0 half-time deficit against Stoke City on Sunday afternoon. Liverpool’s outgoing captain managed to score a conciliation goal before former player Peter Crouch made it a 6-1 final result.

Liverpool appeared utterly lost, which is especially troubling when you consider the imminent departure of Gerrard. Star youngster Raheem Sterling could also be leaving the club this summer, with Man City interested. Liverpool can have no excuses.

In the other football results from yesterday, there were wins for Arsenal (4-1 vs. West Brom), Chelsea (3-1 vs. Sunderland), and Man City (2-0 vs. Southampton). Man Utd finished the season with a dull 0-0 draw away at relegated Hull City.

Another eye-catching score line was Leicester City’s 5-1 demolition of QPR. Despite his erratic behaviour, Nigel Pearson has proven competent in leading the Foxes to a 14th-placed finish and survival.

Fontwell Horse Racing Results – 24 May 2015


Although cloudy, Fontwell Racecourse managed to stay dry on Sunday (24 May). Therefore, the going was good and the horses had a quality surface to race on. Horsted Valley made the most of the conditions by winning as 2/1 favourite in the 14:20 Handicap Hurdle.

Next up in the UK horse racing results was a 10/1 win for Houseparty in the 14:50 Handicap Chase. Detroit Blues then won as 7/4 favourite in the 15:25 Maiden Hurdle, followed by a victory for 7/2 favourite Adrenalin Flight in the 16:00 Handicap Chase.

Yesyoucan provided major value in winning the 16:35 Handicap Hurdle at long odds of 16/1. La Madonnina emerged as the next victor at 6/1 in the 17:05 Handicap Chase. Brass Monkey would then win the final race at 8/1. The Lizzie Kelly-ridden horse raced well to win ahead of Warsaw Pact (20/1) and Thepartysover (16/1).

Hexham Horse Racing Naps – 26 May 2015


To help you prepare for Hexham Racecourse today, we have checked out a couple of horse racing naps from Sky Sports. The going has been forecast as good for Tuesday (26 May).

The 18:10 Maiden Hurdle will present somewhat of a warm-up for race-goers, with the hotly contested 18:40 Handicap Hurdle coming not long after.

Samedi Soir has identified as a 3/1 favourite by Sky Sports, but the five-year-old has not won in seven races. A horse in much better form is the 7/1 Burnt Sienna. From six races, the five-year-old has a win, a second, and two thirds.

For the 19:10 Handicap Chase, the favourite looks like a superior prospect compared to the 18:40 favourite. Scarlet Fire has won twice in seven races, also finishing second once and third three times. You can expect to get odds of approximately 11/4 for the in-form eight-year-old.
