Vardy Can Score Against His Old Club
Jamie Vardy scored 31 goals in 36 appearances for Fleetwood Town in the 2011-12 Conference Premier season. Both the player and club have been upwardly mobile in the last few years. Vardy won a Premier League title with Leicester and has played for England while Fleetwood have risen to the third level of English football and have ambitions to get higher. VARDY was injured so couldn’t play in the original tie at Fleetwood but is 4/6 with William Hill score at any time during 90 minutes of the replay in Leicester tonight. The home side should progress but may not get the job done in 90 minutes and are massive favourites to qualify for the next round. The winners of the fixture are at PETERBOROUGH in the fourth round and that side are 1000/1 to win the FA Cup.
There are jumps meetings at Hereford and Ayr today and an All-Weather fixture at Kempton. There is only contest that offers over £15,000 to the winner, another that is worth over £10,000 but no other race today offers more than £6,000 to the winning connections. Prize money in British racing is derisory compared to other racing nations but it’s the ones without an on-course betting option that can provide the lucrative races. Diversity in the type of racing and how you can place a bet are paid for by low levels of prize money and you can’t please all the people all the time. The richest race of the day is at Kempton (6.40pm) and DANZAN is a decent colt with a big chance and the horse can be backed at 11/8 with Ladbrokes.
Ronnie O’Sullivan plays Marco Fu in the Masters snooker at the Alexandra Palace. The Rocket has won the tournament three times in the last four years and is the favourite this time. His opponent recorded the highest break in the event last year and produced six century breaks. Both players have positive mental associations with the venue and tournament. Playing at his best and fully focused O’Sullivan is the best player in the world and a five-time world champion. He seemed to be playing with freedom and a couldn’t care less attitude which is a dangerous combination. O’SULLIVAN minus 1-5 frames in the best of 11 match is 4/9 with Betfair.
