the INSIDER

OLE, Ole, Ole, Ole, Ole, Ole, the World Cup starts today. I’ve been growing my nails getting ready for the penalty shoot outs and red cards. It’s time for a lot of beer and a huge amount of highs and lows. I’m sure England will do well and I will be backing them in running either during or after tomorrow’s first group match. I reckon we could be in for a torrid evening tomorrow and for that reason I reckon the 25/1 with Skybet on a full-time score of 2-2 is the bet, at least then even if the Americans have a good 90 minutes we can still celebrate with a pile of Krugerrand. Of course the odds may be different later today or tomorrow so check out www.oddschecker.com for the best price.

Racing is in the eye-of-a-storm this weekend. Last week we saw a very convincing winner of the Derby in Workforce, whilst next week is Royal Ascot. It’s normally a good idea to have a look around for a top stable sending out a two-year-old or two under the radar for a quick bit of experience. Usually a runner from the Stoute, Godolphin, Jarvis or Johnston team will have a pipe opener before coming back to run well throughout July and August in group races. While I’m watching out for their runners I will be having a few shillings on WATER ICE (2%) tomorrow in the 2.10pm at Leicester and today HEART OF HEARTS (5%) in the 8.05pm at Chepstow.
