Massive Day For Liverpool And Kew Gardens
There are two huge sporting events today, one on the outskirts of Liverpool and the other one near Paris. The Premier League fixture between Liverpool and Manchester City at Anfield will go along way to settling the winners of the title and the Prix de l‘Arc de Triomphe at Longchamp is the richest Flat race in Europe. The outcome of the match and race will be hugely significant in identifying the best football team in England and best middle distance horse in Europe.
Manchester City have won the Premier League three times in the last seven years. They scored more than 100 goals and won more than 100 points and were far too good for Liverpool and everyone else last season. However, City have not won once in their last 17 away matches against Liverpool in all competitions. Jurgen Klopp has won eight of 14 encounters against teams managed by Pep Guardiola. He can improve that record today with a win for LIVERPOOL at 6/4 with Paddy Power.
Enable has been drawn six in the Arc and that boosts the filly’s chance of winning the race again. The horse is trying to emulate Treve, another female who won the Arc aged three and four. The statistics suggest any horse drawn in stall 10 or higher can not win the race. Three-year-olds receive six pounds from older horses and fillies get another three pounds. KEW GARDENS (stall 14) gets the age allowance but not the sex allowance and can defy the trends by winning the Arc at 11/1 with Ladbrokes.
