It’s A Nice Day For A White Wedding And Cup Final
It’s a celebration and national and global event. You are either red or blue, bride or groom. North or south stand at Wembley, left or right aisle at Windsor Castle. Everybody will drink too much and there could be a big fight at the end. Meghan Markle is 10/1 with Ladbrokes to wear WHITE. MANCHESTER UNITED are 7/4 with William Hill to win the FA Cup.
Prince William has been invited to both occasions but he’ll be giving his little brother Harry the ring rather than giving the FA Cup trophy to the United captain. But who really is the Special One? Jose Mourinho or Her Majesty the Queen. It could be EDEN HAZARD who is 6/1 with bet365 to be the man of the match in today’s FA Cup Final. PAUL POGBA is 5/1 with William Hill.
Manchester United and Chelsea are not in the best form. United have done very little since beating Tottenham in the semi-final. They have conceded at least one goal in the last nine fixtures against top six opposition. Chelsea’s season ended little a damp squib with a draw at home to Huddersfield and defeat at Newcastle in the last league match of the season. Mourinho can motivate his players in the matches that matter most and Chelsea could be playing for the last time with Antonio Conte in charge. The standout bet is BTTS at Evens with Betfair.
The Group 1 Lockinge Stakes at Newbury (3.40) is the biggest race of the day and the winner picks up almost 200 grand. It’s a close contest on ratings and form with the added element of improving horses who have excelled in handicaps. LIMATO has the ground to suit and the distance of one mile is not an issue so the horse is the one to back at 9/2 with Ladbrokes.
