In addition to the televised Premier League match at Wembley that brings together a home side in Tottenham and visitors Everton there are six fixtures that start at the traditional time at 3pm. Just after the mid-point of the season the top six teams in the table are predictable and features the six richest clubs in England who can afford to pay the best wages. All their matches this weekend and next Monday have been rearranged for broadcast which means the highest placed team starting at 1500 are Burnley in seventh place. The three leagues within a league is reflected in the current standings because the big city clubs with the most resources are pulling away from the rest of league. The teams in the second bracket are in mid-table safety while the rest have relegation issues. BURNLEY are 16/5 with Paddy Power to win at Crystal Palace.
Warwick stages a decent novices’ hurdle won by The New One and Willoughby Court in the past and both horses went on to win at the Cheltenham Festival so this can be informative. Grand National winner One For Arthur won the Classic Chase this time last year. The televised meeting at Kempton is made up mainly of handicaps but there is a Class 1 listed chase at 2.05pm. Smad Place is better over further but is still proven over the distance of today’s race. God’s Own has the highest Racing Post Ratings has won two Grade 1s in the past but has not won a race since April 2016. Josses Hill has the best hurdles form and its all about his jumping over fences. WAITING PATIENTLY has decent form with Politologue which stands out so looks a decent bet at 13/8 with William Hill.
England Can Beat Australia In The ODI Format
England have sent for cavalry for the five match One Day International series against Australia and the first meeting begins in Melbourne at 3.20 tomorrow morning. The four-nil drubbing in the Ashes series was a one-sided affair but England can bounce back in the limited overs format. Australia won the last World Cup in which both teams bat for 50 overs but England beat them in the Champions Cup last year. Eoin Morgan has taken over from Joe Root as captain and the reinforcements make England better equipped to give Australia a game. The hosts will also make changes but they could weaken the team so ENGLAND should be backed at 7/4 with Ladbrokes to beat the Aussies this time.
