Higgins On Track For Sixth World Snooker Title
Its seems appropriate that in football terms the Class Of 92 will always be associated with Sir Alex Ferguson and today snooker’s equivalent meet in the final of the World Snooker Championship. John Higgins and Mark Williams turned professional in 1992 in the same year that Manchester United won the Youth Cup with six players who would go on to play a major part in Fergie’s success as the most successful manager in English football. Sir Alex and HIGGINS come from the same neck of the woods and the Scottish snooker player is the favourite to win a fifth world title at 4/7 with William Hill.
Tottenham lost at West Brom yesterday which means its any two from three for the final Champions League places. The two Manchester clubs look home and hosed and Arsenal are too many points off the pace. Chelsea are six points behind Liverpool with a game in hand so today’s meeting at Stamford Bridge is massive. Liverpool could lose the final of the Champions League and finish fifth so there is still a great deal on the line. A draw would be a great result for the visitors and they have drawn 12 league matches this season which is the most of the teams in the top six. You can back the DRAW in today’s match at Chelsea at 5/2 with Ladbrokes.
Aidan O’Brien won the 2,000 for the ninth time yesterday with Saxon Warrior who is now odds-on to win the Derby. Mendelssohn was disappointing in the Kentucky Derby last night but Happily can make amends in the 1,000 Guineas today. The horse won two Group 1 contests last season and O’Brien has won Classics with two of his siblings. HAPPILY can record another Classic win for O’Brien and that outcome is 9/4 with Betfair.
