Rocket Ronnie Is The World’s Best
When he’s in the mood Ronnie O’Sullivan is the best snooker player in the world and when it all clicks into place the best in the history of the sport. He once scored a 147 maximum break in about four minutes and on another occasion missed the black on purpose with a maximum on the cards because he thought the money for the achievement was derisory. On the other hand Shaun Murphy is a solid pro who meets O’Sullivan today in the final of the Players Championship. It’s the best of 19 frames or first to 10 and O’SULLIVAN -3 frames is the bet at Evens with Ladbrokes.
You know it’s a quiet day for domestic league football when the highlights are televised matches in League 1 and 2. It’s another ridiculous international break when the Premier League is put on hold for meaningless friendlies. England have scheduled matches against two teams that have not qualified for the World Cup. It will be interesting to look back and compare the starting 11 for England’s first match in the World Cup against Tunisia with the players who take to the pitch against Italy. It looks like Joe Hart has cooked his goose and JORDAN PICKFORD is 10/11 to be in goal for the Tunisia match.
There is a decent jumps card at Ascot today but €300,000 on offer at the Flat meeting at Naas in Ireland. We are in that lull between the Cheltenham Festival and Grand National meeting and racing on the level takes precedence for about three weeks. It would make sense for the turf Flat season to start after the National. In any case the Irish Lincolnshire (4.50) takes place at Naas today and the race is worth €59,000. On ratings ELM GROVE looks a big price at 33/1 with bet365 but Ronnie with a three frame handicap is the bet of the day.
