Wayne Rooney is Manchester United’s record scorer but will probably score against is old club for Everton at Goodison Park today. It will be interesting to see how the United fans respond if Rooney does find the net and how the player celebrates. He never let United down and has scored more goals than any other player for the club. He has broken Bobby Charlton’s record for scoring goals for club and country but Rooney is now playing for the club he has always supported. United have won just one of their last five fixtures at Everton but coincidence bettors will be interested in ROONEY scoring at any time at 14/5 with Ladbrokes.
Not soon after the end of this fixture Phil Taylor will be on the ochre for the final time. The 16 times world darts champion can have one last hurrah by beating Rob Cross in tonight’s world final. Taylor has dominated the sport for over 30 years and can end his career with another world title in the bag. Cross has come from nowhere to make the final and his win over Michael van Gerwen in the last four had everything. The longer the final goes on the better chance Cross has of causing an upset. In this first to seven set contest TAYLOR can win by more than one set so the standout bet is the veteran -1.5 sets at 13/10 with Betfair.
Exactly twelve months ago ITV took over the free-to-air broadcasting of racing in Britain. The presenters worked outdoors and as luck would have it there was a monsoon at Cheltenham. The team are back at the home of jumps racing for the traditional curtain raiser to the racing year. The Festival starts 10 weeks tomorrow and there could be some clues at the track this afternoon. The best race on the card is the Grade 2 novices’ chase at 1.25pm. It features two horses who were top class hurdlers but the form of Yanworth was better than that of Willoughby Court. YANWORTH can win the race at 15/8 with William Hill before Rooney and then Taylor take centre stage. Both old stagers can deliver at their favourite venues.
