Today’s preview was written before Liverpool played Newcastle away from home and the outcome of that match will be hugely significant for the destiny of the Premier League title. Today’s three fixtures are all about finishing in third or fourth place, qualifying for next season’s Champions League and avoiding the long winded chore that is the Europa League. Chelsea, Arsenal and MANCHESTER UNITED are in action and the latter are 10/1 with bet365 for a top four finish.
Chelsea are first up at home to Watford who are playing Manchester City in the FA Cup Final. The visitors’ form has dipped over their last two matches and they are now the outsiders of four to finish seventh and play in European competition next season. Winning the Cup is another route but beating City at Wembley looks beyond them. CHELSEA are playing well in the league and Europe and are Evens with Betfair to beat Watford by more than one goal.
Manchester United visit Huddersfield and should secure the away win that keeps their top four hopes alive. The home team are relegated and have lost their last five fixtures in the Premier League. Huddersfield have a negative goal difference of 54 and have scored just nine goals at home, conceding 30. MANCHESTER UNITED TO WIN TO NIL is 21/20 with bet365. Arsenal look like bankers against a Brighton desperate for points so the DRAW is worth backing at 4/1 with Betfair.
The 1,000 Guineas is the first Classic of the season solely for fillies and is run over the Rowley Mile at Newmarket (3.35). Qabala won the latest trial on the course but over a distance of seven furlongs so is unproven at one mile. In fact the horse has only run twice and both wins were over seven furlongs at Newmarket. IRIDESSA won the Fillies’ Mile at the track last October so is the best bet at 15/2 with bet365.
