The TV Match Draw Double Pays 17/1
There will be some blockbuster races at the Cheltenham Festival next week and today there is a blockbuster match in the Premier League. However, even though the local rivalry is intense there is very little at stake. Manchester United and Liverpool have almost certainly qualified for the Champions League and there are no real benefits from finishing second and not third. There will be lots of huff and puff but the DRAW is likely and that outcome can be backed at 23/10 with Ladbrokes.
Chelsea have to start winning or soon they will be detached from the top four while Crystal Palace are in the bottom three. This is as close as a must-win match for Chelsea as there could be and they can’t afford to drop points at home against a team in the relegation places. Palace led Manchester United 2-0 at home in their last Premier League fixture but still contrived to lose. Chelsea are not playing well enough to exploit a poor team and the DRAW in this match is 9/2 with William Hill.
CALL ME LORD Could Be Overpriced
The winner of the Imperial Cup at Sandown will earn a £100,000 bonus if also winning a race at the Cheltenham Festival next week. It’s a great incentive for some Festival bound horses to race today. However, it’s a big ask to win this competitive handicap hurdle and then win a similar race at the Festival. The top weight is a relatively unexposed horse who could be a blot on the handicap at Sandown today and at Cheltenham next week. CALL ME LORD could be overpriced at 8/1 with Coral.
