Charlie McCann

Seven years as talkSPORT racing correspondent/tipster who recently spent over a decade as Director Of PR/Communications for a couple of leading igaming operators. Failed cricketer - I regularly bore people, myself included, with the story about how I caught Imran Khan when 12th Man for Lancashire v Sussex as a youth - former National League Basketball player - once scored 72 points in a game - and lifelong and long suffering Everton supporter. Many of my old friends - and I mean old - would tell you I was a better footballer than cricketer - but cricket was my first love. Horse racing has long been my passion - ironic really as I'll never pass the vet again as my sport injuries have come back to bite - with my specialism handicap chases over jumps and 1m+ handicaps on the level. I have met many of the great and good in the game and consider myself to have been very fortunate. Please always bet within your means and never chase your losses. Be Lucky.
