    It’s Ladies’ Day at the St Leger Festival. But don’t imagine our experts will be swayed by a little thing like hordes of glammed-up ladies swarming into the festival. They live for stats.

    Weekly Eye-Catchers – Horse Racing

    It was certainly the case of famine rather than feast on the horse racing front last week. The action won’t live long in the memory. That said a bit of famine can give you the hunger for more top class betting action and for the rest of the month it’s going to be non-stop racing. It all starts this weekend…
