Peter Sagan Can Win The Final Stage
The final stage of the Tour de France is ceremonial so Geraint Thomas has won the race. Before 2012 no British rider had won the most famous bike event in the world but now six of the last seven winners were from the UK. The participants only try at the end of the stage on the Champs Elysees and the final sprint is competitive.
The winner of the last stage has no bearing on the General Classification and Thomas will be serenaded by his team mates in Paris at the end of his Tour. PETER SAGAN is 9/2 with Ladbrokes to win Stage 21.
After the Lord Mayor’s Show of the World Cup final two weeks ago we are now into some bread and butter football and the highlight in Britain is the match between the home team in Hearts and Inverness in the Betfred Cup. The visitors have won 10 of their last 11 matches and Hearts could be losing their leading striker top Rangers. There have been 13 new arrivals at Hearts so the team is transitioning. INVERNESS can take advantage with a win and that outcome is 13/2 with bet365.
There is a decent Flat meeting at Pontefract today and the richest race is the Listed contest over one mile at 3.35pm. This Class 1 race has attracted a small but quality field and Gabr must have a chance after being competitive in better races earlier in the season. However, the ratings suggest BIG COUNTRY looks a big price and can win the race at 7/2 with William Hill.
