RACING

David Ord

Owen Burrows will be hoping for a good autumn with his Kingwood House team and Mofael should pay his way for the rest of the calendar year. The son of Invincible Spirit, who cost 240,000 guineas as a yearling, has improved with each of his three starts to date and impressed when breaking his maiden at Ffos Las last time.

Sent off at 4/6, he treated his rivals with contempt under Martin Dwyer, stepping up to a mile for the first time, and an opening mark of 85 looks potentially lenient. He’s proven at this track too having run well on his reappearance here and this looks a good fit for him as he continues his education and progression.

Oli Bell

Richard Hannon has his team in fine form right now and Embour can run a big race for the yard in the William Hill Portland at Doncaster.

He’s had a busy and profitable campaign and ran very well on his last two starts at Goowood and Sandown. This intermediate trip will suit him and he has a strong place claims in a competitive handicap.

Ben Linfoot

Owen Burrows’ Habub showed enough off his new mark last time to suggest he can strike again and he’s worth siding with in the luxdexo.com Elsenham Handicap (2.45 Chelmsford).

War Front progeny have a fine record at Chelmsford thanks to 13 wins and a 22 per cent strike-rate and Habub’s course and distance success in August is amongst that number.

Up 7lb following that impressive victory, he was a touch too keen back at the same track last time when beaten just under three lengths by Saturday’s favourite War Glory.

A 3lb pull at the weights with that rival can help him reverse the form, while War Glory is drawn out in 12 here with Habub better berthed in stall three.

Rossa Ryan is in great form and if he can get him settled, which he could well do if perennial front-runner Sonja Henie (drawn next door in stall four) tows him into things, then he could find his way back into the winners’ enclosure.

Matthew Brocklebank

Never No More - 2.25 Doncaster

A trip to America back-fired with Never No More unable to make an impression in the Secretariat Stakes at Arlington but he was hampered at an early stage there and it’s possibly worth putting a line through the bare form.

He’s been given time to recover from those exertions and returns to seven furlongs for Saturday’s Hird Rail Group Park Stakes.

The son of No Nay Never should absolutely love the forecast fast ground while the drop back in distance also promises to suit following his two wins at the trip earlier in the year.

The latter of those victories was a half-length defeat of Madhmoon so he’s clearly a class act with the potential for further improvement and easing into a Group Two should do his confidence some good.

FOOTBALL

Premier League - George Pitts

Set pieces could be key and, with this in mind, their defenders could be play an important part due to their aerial ability and are worth looking at in the shots market.

Magpies captain Jamaal Lascelles has had an attempt in their last two away games and it is surprising to see him as high as 6/1 to register an effort on goal. That is appealing, but 21/10 for 1+ shots in general is preferred - covering us for blocked efforts and those off target.

He is yet to pick up a yellow card in the Premier League, but got one in the League Cup at Newcastle and also for Turkey in their recent win over Andorra. As classy as he is, he has shown a tendency to make rash decisions and he was lucky not to go in the book against Bournemouth.

The pace of the Cherries' attack did put him to test at times and against the likes of Marcus Rashford and Anthony Martial he may well leave a trailing leg or commit a cynical foul so, at 3/1, it's worth taking.

EFL - Tom Carnduff

He's scored three and assisted another two, an impressive tally made even more so by the fact he has only completed the full 90 minutes in one of those games.

Considering the game we're expecting, and Fulham's intent on attack, we could see a high shots tally for both teams.

Sporting Life EFL ACCA

CHARLTON are expected to continue their fine start to the season as they host Birmingham - Lee Bowyer's side are unbeaten so far. BLACKPOOL can capitalise on MK Dons' poor away form (two losses in two), while the Tangerines are unbeaten in their three games in front of their own supporters.

For PETERBOROUGH, they've started to get going with victories in their last four games in all competitions , and in Sky Bet League Two, EXETER sit top of the pile with five wins and two draws in their seven games.

BOXING

Chris Oliver

Tyson Fury
Tyson Fury

While he boasts a perfect 20-fight record, Wallin hasn't mixed with anyone near world-level and arguably his best win, a 10-round decision over countryman Adrian Granat in April last year, isn't much to shout about given that the latter was stopped inside a round by Alexander Dimitrenko 13 months earlier.

The underdog is unlikely to pose Fury too many problems but he looks to have enough about him to make it to at least the middle rounds, so a second half stoppage for the favourite makes some appeal around 15/8.

Sunday's value treble: Titans, Bills and Bengals all to win at 4/1

Indianapolis Colts @ Tennessee Titans

They were dancing in the streets of Nashville when Andrew Luck retired as he was unbeaten in 11 starts as Colts QB, now Jacoby Brissett coming to town doesn't hole suite the same fear factor. The Titans impressively burst the Browns' hype bubble last week and with such a strong all-round proposition they're many people's AFC dark horse.

Buffalo Bills @ New York Giants

The Bills play their second straight game at MetLife Stadium having beaten the Giants' room-mates the Jets last week, coming from 16-0 down no less. Eli Manning's time is running out and we've already had a Daniel Jones sighting last week - this Bills defence already settled in these surroundings is not what Eli needs right now. Josh Allen had a career-best 254 passing yards here last week, now he gets a Big Blue secondary that coughed up 400 to Dak Prescott in week one.

San Francisco 49ers @ Cincinnati Bengals

Backing the Bengals is never usually a wise play, but no team came out of a week one defeat with more plaudits than Zac Taylor's men after their surprisingly explosive effort in Seattle last Sunday - piling up 418 yards on the Seahawks will catch anybody's eye. The Niners enjoyed a good win in Tampa Bay last week - but had two touchdowns come off interceptions and if Andy Dalton limits his mistakes, San Francisco's offence will have to play a lot better than it did last week.
