The Saints Will Not Go Marching On
Manchester United will play Chelsea or Southampton in the final of the FA Cup at Wembley on May 19th. In the 1976 final Bobby Stokes scored the only goal of the final when Southampton beast United. In 1994 United beat Chelsea 4-0 in the final so there will now be a repeat of a previous final. MANCHESTER UNITED are now the favourites to win the Cup at 8/11 with William Hill. That price will change once their opponents are known and on recent form that should be Chelsea.
In 2013 Wigan won the FA Cup and were relegated from the Premier League. The club have never looked like regaining their top flight status and their history changed for ever. Wigan have their name on the Cup but are now a League 1 club. However, they are now nailed on for promotion to the Championship but that could be their ceiling. Southampton’s priority is to stay in the Premier League and a weakened team means CHELSEA -1 on the handicap is the bet in this match at 6/5 with bet365.
There are three jumps meetings in Britain today and the total prize money on offer is only slightly more than the total value of eight races at Navan in Ireland. The Listed race over 10 furlongs at 4.15 is the most lucrative race of the day. The race is dominated by O’Brien horses, both Aidan and Joseph, but if thee is to be a left field winner it could be MARY TUDOR at 7/2 with Ladbrokes.
