All hail Altior

It was more a case of through the mud for Altior on Saturday as he kept his unbeaten record over fences alive with an impressive victory in the Betfair Tingle Creek Chase.

Un De Sceaux and his rider Ruby Walsh made sure this was a proper championship test, and once again Altior had all the answers on his return to the track.

Also at Sandown, Lalor's Arkle prospects suffered a blow as Dynamite Dollars won the Grade One novices' race while there might just be a Grade One winner of the future in the shape of opening winner I Can't Explain.

City come unstuck

Manchester City's bid to emulate Arsenal's Invincibles came to a premature end on Saturday evening as they lost 2-0 at Chelsea.

For much of the first half, Pep Guardiola's side toyed with their opponents but N'Golo Kante's goal changed the course of the game and Chelsea doubled their advantage late on through David Luiz.

King Louis a class apart

Louis Oosthuizen romped to a six-shot victory in the SA Open, where Oliver Wilson, Charl Schwartzel and Thomas Aiken earned Open Championship places.

Oosthuizen was brilliant after a shaky start on Sunday and, after winning on his first start in his national open since 2010, it was clear just how much it meant.

Also in golf, Patton Kizzire and Brian Harman won the QBE Shootout - to the delight of those patient enough to follow Ben Coley's golf tips.

Put up at 16/1 prior to the tournament, the duo finished with a flourish to deny Graeme McDowell and Emiliano Grillo by a single stroke. There are no pictures because, basically, nobody cares about it.

Points win for Kell Brook

Kell Brook made his return to the ring on Saturday night but while it was a winning one, there were few obvious positives to draw from a points verdict over Michael Zerafa.

Brook had been around the 1/4 mark to stop his Australian opponent but never looked like doing so in an underwhelming effort, although his team made all the right noises afterwards.

Drake proves a big hit

The Miami Dolphins produced a brilliant last-gasp touchdown to beat the New England 34-33 and prevent the Patriots clinching a 10th successive AFC East title.

Miami, the last team to stop the Patriots winning the division, went 69 yards with the last action of the game for a touchdown that included two lateral passes.

Kenyan Drake was the last recipient and secured a dramatic victory as time expired.
