Don’t Expect A Cricket Score At Yeovil Tonight
Manchester United are the biggest football club in the world and Yeovil Town are 21st in League Two. United have just paid the equivalent of the total GDP of the town of Yeovil for Alexis Sanchez and the team they visit in the FA Cup tonight were famous for having a slopping pitch in their non-league days. The luxury coach United players will travel in to the ground is possibly worth more than the 11 Yeovil players who start tonight’s fourth round tie. Logic suggests a cricket score but United have not found the net more than three times in their last 13 matches in all competitions. United have visited one ground of a lower league team this season and lost the fixture 2-1 to Bristol City in the EFL Cup. YEOVIL +3 goals on the handicap is 5/6 with Ladbrokes.
Roger Federer is 1/8 to beat Hyeon Chung in this morning’s semi-final in the Australian Open. The winner plays Marin Cilic who brought Kyle Edmund back down to earth in their last four match yesterday. Caroline Wozniacki is playing Simona Halep in the women’s final early tomorrow morning. She was famously dumped by Rory McIlroy having booked the local golf club for their wedding reception and worked out the seating plan. Her positive spin on McIlroy ending their relationship was that she could wear heels again. Winning her first Grand Slam tournament and moving to number one in the world rankings might be a better outcome and WOZNIACKI is 6/5 with William Hill to beat Halep.
Weather permitting there are jumps meetings at Doncaster and Huntingdon today and All-Weather racing at Lingfield and Kempton and Dundalk in Ireland. Taquin De Seiul is an excellent chaser who has run in Grade 1 races but now contests the handicap hurdle at Huntingdon (3.15pm) which is the richest race in Britain today. The Jonjo O’Neill trainee runner has been competitive at a much higher level but been weighted accordingly. The horse carries 18 pounds more than PROTEK DES FLOS who has conditions to suit today and can be backed at 11/8 with Betfair.
