Racing

Ben Linfoot

This horse was a class juvenile, winning at Group One and Group Two level in France, his performances as a two-year-old earning him a rating of 117 – form that gives him an outstanding chance here getting weight from everything bar his stablemate and rank outsider Raydience.

I thought he was unlucky not to finish closer in the Commonwealth Cup (only beaten just over four lengths) and then he was beaten by some quality sprinters in a hot renewal of the Prix Maurice de Gheest. Things just seemed to be happening a bit quick for him in France but he kept on nicely enough and that’s encouraging ahead of his first go at seven furlongs, a trip that could really suit him.

Matt Brocklebank

Dance To Paris can be a little bit lively and she clearly still has a bit of growing up to do, but there were some really positive signs on her return from nearly a year off when fourth on the all-weather here at the start of the month.

The cheekpieces she wore there looked to calm her down a bit and blinkers – deployed now for the first time – could be the absolute making of her. She looks seriously well treated on the pick of her early form and the switch back to turf looks another plus.

Her jockey Edward Greatrex has been banging in the winners of late, while the placement in this 0-70 handicap looks inspired for the 71-rated filly. She’s not to be missed between the high-class, Saturday action at Doncaster and Leopardstown.

David Ord

RAJINSKY - 1610 Doncaster

An opening mark of 82 could seriously underestimate Rajinsky who can make a winning handicap debut in the Napoleons Casinos & Restaurants Nursery. Tom Dascombe’s charge is improving with every race and did well to open his account at Sandown last time, finishing well having not been in ideal position. He’ll appreciate the return to an extra furlong here and appeals as the sort to pick up a decent pot somewhere in the autumn. The hat-trick seeking Indian Viceroy is the obvious danger.


Football

Premier League: Tottenham v Liverpool (Saturday, 1230 BST)

It is such a tough game to call, but on what's been seen so far there seems a new steel right through this Liverpool side, especially in their pace and energy in midfield which could really trouble Spurs. There's also more firepower up front for them to potentially get what would be a huge three points.

Premier League: Newcastle v Arsenal (Saturday, 1500 BST)

Unai Emery's men are well fancied favourites, as they look to secure a second successive away win after overcoming Cardiff before the international break - and they could be boosted by the return of playmaker Mesut Ozil. However, the Gunners have not kept a clean sheet so far this season, so backing them to win and both sides to score presents an excellent price.

Sky Bet EFL Championship: Brentford v Wigan

Ollie Watkins has four goals to his name this season alongside one assist, and the 22-year old scored in Brentford's last game, a 2-1 home win over Nottingham Forest. He may move back to the wing this weekend, but he's already proved this season he can score from there too, due to the system and style the Bees currently employ.

Sporting Life Accumulator

Two sides that have started the Championship season well, Brentford are very strong at home and have had 34 shots on target in open play this season, the highest in the Championship, which could prove too much for Wigan.

Luton have picked up 19 points from a possible 21 in their last seven home league games. Bristol Rovers have failed to win in their last five in all competitions and have just four away victories in the whole of 2018.

Sunderland have started well under Jack Ross and have found the back of the net in each of their last 15 league games. Burton are stronger at home, but Sunderland have not yet to lost away from home in League One, winning two.

Southend have won three of their last five league away games, keeping a clean sheet in each of the those victories. Shrewsbury are still yet to win this season in any competition.


Cricket

T20 Vitality Blast Finals Day - Semi Final Two: Sussex v Somerset (Saturday, 1430 BST)

Somerset are a dangerous outfit, but Sussex boast a five-star bowling attack with strong international and global T20 experience. They have the likes of Jofra Archer, Tymal Mills and Chris Jordan. Archer has been delivering over 90mph balls regularly, while spinner Danny Briggs has taken 15 wickets in the competition so far at a miserly economy rate of 7.04.


Darts

Saturday darts treble

  • James Wilson, Max Hopp & Joe Cullen all to win at 4.5/1 (Click to bet)

James Wilson is the marginal outsider at 6/5 to beat Simon Whitlock but he did reach a final on the European Tour earlier this month and could spring a minor surprise at the International Darts Open tonight. Max Hopp is an exciting prospect and will once again love performing in front of his own fans against Steve Beaton. The final leg of this acca is surely a banker as the in-form Joe Cullen takes on Ross Smith. The Rockstar has been knocking on the door to win his first European Tour event this season and I really wouldn't be surprised to see him do it this weekend, especially as Michael van Gerwen isn't in the event.


NFL

Touchdown Treble

Last week’s Touchdown Treble came in after just a quarter and a bit of Sunday’s action and we’ve again included Saints running back Alvin Kamara after he scored inside four minutes last week as he scored three TDs while showcasing his ability in both the running and passing game.

Mike Evans scored in Tampa Bay’s surprise win in New Orleans though and his monster game there gets him into our three-man scoring squad for this Sunday, which is completed by Antonio Brown.

The Pittsburgh Steelers wideout is perhaps the most compete receiver in the NFL and scored last week despite the team being way below their best – he’s always a decent shout to find pay dirt and especially since he’s facing a beatable Chiefs secondary.


Boxing

Gennady Golovkin v Saul 'Canelo' Alvarez - (Sunday, 0400 BST)

The pair fought out a thriller in September last year but it ended in a highly controversial draw, with two judges and most onlookers giving the fight to Golovkin. Since that fight Golovkin has fought once more, while Alvarez has served a six month ban for twice testing positive for Clenbuterol, so will he have the ring fitness and sharpness to push Golvokin again? In a close matchup, this question mark just tips it for Golovkin for us.
