Dalton Can Win The Third Prize
The Ayr Gold Cup has acquired two siblings in the form of consolations for the big race on Saturday. Today it’s the first of those two consolation contests in the form of the Ayr Bronze Cup. It’s also a handicap over the straight six furlongs which has attracted a maximum field of 25 runners. These secondary races are examined closely for the affect of the draw and traditionally high numbers have an advantage on the Ayr straight sprint track. The open nature of the race is reflected in the ante post betting in which five horses were vying for favouritism. DALTON is unexposed and lightly raced (drawn 11) and can be backed at 9/1 with Betfair to win the bronze medal. Some bookmakers are offering six each way places.
If it’s Friday night it’s live Championship football but sooner or later there will be a Premier League fixture broadcast regularly in this slot. Wigan at home to Bristol City does not have the same ring as a match bringing together two superpowers of the Premier League. There’s even talk of live matches at the sacred kick-off time of 3pm on Saturday. Virtually every match can now be seen as it happens from the top two divisions. In the olden days the scarcity value of a live match made it something special. Thanks to the red button supply massively exceeds demand for live matches. BRISTOL CITY generally score and one goal could be enough to beat Wigan at 23/10 with bet365.
Players go out in pairs in first round scores order on the second day of the Tour Championship. The last two-ball is an 18-hole match up between Tiger Woods and Rickie Fowler. The young generation of 20 something golfers grew up watching Tiger win majors and now they are going head-to-head with the former number one. Woods is the only player to win the FedEx Cup more than once and he is right in the mix this time. However, it would be appropriate if the current leading player in the standings won the trophy and $10 million bonus. JUSTIN ROSE is 5/1 with Ladbrokes to win the Tour Championship and the post season title and huge financial prize.
