RACING

David Ord

He's not been the easiest to train over the years but remains relatively low-mileage as a result and TWO TAFFS looks the answer to the Meetings That Matter On Racing TV Veterans' Handicap Chase.

He makes his first start for Nigel Twiston-Davies from the same mark from which he chased home Clondaw Castle at Warwick last term and goes well fresh.

The yard are ticking over nicely now and he's fancied to make a winning start in this sphere at the main expense of Sir Ivan.

Dave Massey

LEX TALLIONIS can hardly be described as prolific, with a return of just two wins from 42 starts, but he’s dropped a long way in the handicap after a barren spell for Charlie Mann, and there was definitely more spark about his latest effort when fourth at Sedgefield, beaten just under ten lengths in a better race than this.

He’s been found a weak contest today, and although 3m is probably a bare minimum for him, the soft ground should make this enough of a stamina test.

Man On The Spot

CHEB DE KERVINIOU has always looked as though he had a big staying handicap in him and almost won the Leinster National in March when Mon Lino, who ran a cracking race to finish second in this a year ago, was a couple of lengths back in third. The selection isn't consistent but this could just bring out the best in him.

FOOTBALL

Mark O'Haire

KURT ZOUMA has established himself at the heart of Chelsea’s back-four alongside Thiago Silva and has given the Blues an aerial threat from set-pieces. The Frenchman has already scored three times in eight league appearances in 2020/21, having at least one attempt at goal in six of those contests and hitting the target in five fixtures.

Considering Tottenham are missing one of their key aerial defenders in Alderweireld, Zouma should be capable of causing problems from dead-ball situations.

Joe Townsend

I really like THEO WALCOTT to score anytime when Southampton host Manchester United.

His poacher's effort at the back post against Wolves on Monday was an emotional moment, coming 15 years after he last netted for the club. It was also no fluke.

With Danny Ings injured, the on-loan Everton man has been chosen to play alongside Che Adams, and is getting plenty of opportunities on goal as a consequence. He has had three shots in each of his two starts as a striker, added to the two in each game when playing as one of the wide-men in a midfield diamond.

Pepe's absence means it's highly likely BUKAYO SAKA will return to the starting XI after being rested at Elland Road following a busy international period with England.

Whether playing in defence, midfield or attack, he has had at least two shots in all but one league game he's started this term. He pulled the trigger four times against Leicester before being substituted after an hour, and that contest is as close to a mirror image of Sunday's clash with Wolves as you're likely to find.

Saka also had four shots against Iceland when playing at left wing-back for England, so he is not afraid to have a go. His one goal this season is the reason for those inviting odds, but no-one has been scoring for Arsenal and he rates the value.


GOLF

Jason Daniels

Pre-event second-favourite CHRISTIAAN BEZUIDENHOUT looks to be finding top gear at just the right time and rates the bet against the leader ahead of the final round at Leopard Creek.

Looking to have his long-game under complete control through the first two days, he wasn't quite there early on during the third round yet finds himself within touching distance of some far less experienced players thanks to finding something from the turn and then making a birdie which surprised even him at the last.

By some way the proven class on the front page of the board, the experience of beating Jon Rahm by six shots at Valderrama and a runner-up finish in Dubai must serve him well along with his victory at the Dimension Data, and he looks poised to pounce.


NFL

Ross Williams

I find it very difficult to not side with the reigning world champions KANSAS CITY CHIEFS on Sunday.

The Chiefs have a defence that only gives up 21.4 points per game, and Patrick Mahomes should sail by that total with the help of his high-powered offence.

Although the Tampa Bay front seven is strong, they have big problems down the field and they are currently allowing opposition quarterbacks to complete 69.2% of their passes. Only three teams in the entire NFL are worse off in this category.

To cut a long story short, if Mahomes is allowed to complete almost 70% of his passes on Sunday, this one is already over.

Matt Temple-Marsh

WAYNE GALLMAN has five rushing touchdowns in his last four games, including a brace last time out against the putrid Eagles. With Devonta Freeman hitting IR, Gallman will still serve as the lead back against the Burrow-less Bengals.

The Bengals have given up the fourth-most rushing yards to RBs out of all teams in the league, and with Ryan Finley set to start, the Giants are poised to be in a positive game script. This means more rushes, and more opportunities for Gallman to find the end zone. The brace at 17/2 is worth considering, too.
