David Pipe pins hopes on Dynaste for Cheltenham Festival [01:45]
Betfred TV met up with trainer David Pipe to talk about the Cheltenham Festival. This time last year it was all about the RSA Chase and the then hot favourite Grands Crus. He's hoping to put that disappointment behind him in 2013, with the unbeaten chaser Dynaste who could feature either in the RSA or Novices' Chase. But Dynaste isn't the only horse to watch out for from Pipe's stable, watch out for Goulanes, who's being tipped for a bright future.

Long Run Wins William Hill King George VI Chase 26.12.2012 [07:48]
Horse Racing - Long Run wins second King George VI Chase. Long Run held off a spirited challenge from Captain Chris to win the King George VI Chase for the second time in two years at Kempton. The Nicky Henderson trained horse looked set for a comfortable victory, having taken the lead a mile from the finishing post. But a late charge from Richard Johnson aboard Captain Chris saw him jump into the lead at the last hurdle only for Sam Waley-Cohen to produce as last ditch effort to over-haul his rival with two strides to go. "He was so brave," said Waley-Cohen, who also rode Long Run to victory in the delayed 2010 edition of the race and finished runner-up in 2011. "We wanted to take the sting out of everything else and I asked so much, but he was so brave. "This is his fifth year of competing at this level and he means an enormous amount to us. "That was racing at its best to my mind, that's why we do it. I can't put it into words -- it's an honour and a pleasure." Grand Crus finished third almost a mile back. "It was a brave call to go on when he did and it was the right call to make," Henderson said. "It was a battle out there today and not the best ground for any of them. He's young but has been doing everything right. "You would have to say last year was a disappointment but he's been running good races all the time."

Men's pentathlon David Svoboda wins the gold - Summer Olympics 2012 in London (my response) [01:36]
(my response) David Svoboda of the Czech Republic won the modern pentathlon Saturday at the London Games after matching the Olympic record in the fencing event to open the competition. Svoboda, who won the European championship two years ago, led by just one second going into the final event, a combination of running and shooting. He briefly lost the lead after his main rival, Cao Zhongrong of China, was quicker to hit the five targets. Svoboda, however, regained the lead in the running part of the event, throwing his arms in the air to celebrate long before crossing the line. He finished with 5928 points to beat silver medalist Cao by 24 points. Adam Marosi of Hungary, the 2009 world champion, won bronze with 5836 points. ''In Beijing, I was fighting for the gold medal, but it all ended in disappointment,'' said Svoboda, who started as the favorite at the 2008 Olympics but finished 28th. ''So I decided to fight for gold again.'' Cao said he was ''quite happy'' with his performance after earning China's first medal in the event. ''To show your strength on the Olympic grandstand, that's great,'' Cao said through an interpreter. World champion Aleksander Lesun went into the final event in third place, but needed 10 shots to hit his five targets in his first shooting round. He lost too much time there to keep up with Svoboda and Cao, and finished fourth. Two-time defending champion Andrei Moiseev of Russia lost his chance at another gold, falling to sixth going into the ...
