Folks, Fitzdares have excelled themselves with just about every market you could possibly want ahead of the 2023 Rugby World Cup in France. I could spend days picking out best bets but unfortunately there's a plane to catch.
Brendon McCullum’s impact on England and Test cricket as a whole in the past year can’t be overstated – but as the Ashes begins, Rishi Persad is determined to try. I normally take a considered view on the result of the Ashes, primarily for the purpose of a punt on the outcome of the series, but not this summer. This summer I simply want England to win. As a fan of the West Indies since birth, I have always been impartial enough when it came to assessing the relative merits of England and Australia and did so without sentiment. But this year there is something bigger at stake than making a few quid on the correct result.
“I will be staying at Tottenham this summer.” Thus spake Kane, direct from Mount Twitter, ending weeks of speculation regarding his future. All those words, the broadsheet paragraphs, all those pundit opinions…are now just handfuls of sand and dust. It’s over. There is no more to be said on the matter.
‘A man can be as wise as Solomon and have an iron character and still be carried away.’ Fyodor Dostoevsky was writing about the poetic charms of the roulette wheel, but it could just as easily be Cheltenham for those of us addicted to the thrills of that Gloucestershire spa town in March. Just to clarify, I lack Solomon’s wisdom and, come the festival, am not always renowned for my iron character. Yes, I too have been carried away – all the way to the brink. To the “Get Out Stakes” that for so many years was the County Hurdle – the last race of the meeting in those days when Cheltenham wasn’t stretched (along with our stamina) to four days. Friday was for recovering, as often as not licking the wounds.
