Tottenham’s Run To Wembley Could End Tonight
Three of Tottenham’s most influential players will be absent for the second leg of their Carabao Cup semi-final against Chelsea at Stamford Bridge and that could be the end of their run to Wembley. Sadly the Spurs fans won’t be getting a day out at the National Stadium because Chelsea have enough in their favour to eliminate their London rivals. A Harry Kane penalty secured ay 1-0 win the first match and any win with a margin of one goal for Chelsea will take the tie to penalties.
Away goals don’t count and there is no extra time but Chelsea can get the job done in 90 minutes. Kane and Deli Alli are injured and Heung Min-Son is at the Asia Cup with South Korea. Seven of Chelsea’s last eight home matches in domestic football have produced less than three goals. A 2-0 win tonight will suffice and CHELSEA are 4/7 with Paddy Power to win the match in 90 minutes.
It’s the first round of the Farmers Insurance Open on the US PGA Tour and the first showing in 2019 of Tiger Woods. He is a seven times course winner but for outright purposes Jon Rahm is preferred. The Spanish player is also a course winner and he is at the top of his game. Rahm has not looked back since beating Woods in the Ryder Cup singles last September. JON RAHM is 5/4 with bet365 to beat Brandt Snedeker and Jason Day over 18 holes in the first round match that brings together three former winners.
There is €220 in prize money up the grabs at Gowran Park today. The card features a lucrative and competitive handicap chase and the return of the Gold Cup favourite. The Thyestes Chase (3.00) looks open with a 5/1 favourite while Presenting Percy runs over hurdles. INVITATION ONLY was identified as a potential winner of the big chase earlier in the week so there is no reason to oppose the horse who can be backed at 4/1 with Paddy Power.
Presenting Percy runs in the Galmoy Hurdle (1.50) he won last year in his first outing since winning the RSA Chase at the Cheltenham in March. The trainer reports the horse could be not quite match fit so Presenting Percy is opposed. LIMINI can get her career back on track by winning this race and that outcome is 10/1 with bet365.
