Changingoftheguard (Saturday 4:30pm – Epsom Derby) 7/1
There’s every chance that Desert Crown could be a superstar after his comfortable success in the Dante, but a chance is taken on A P O’Brien’s supposed second string – CHANGINGOFTHEGUARD.
The Galileo colt has looked a force to be reckoned with this season, winning both of his races with authority. Stepping up in trip over a mile for the first time, he made a winning reappearance at Dundalk in eye-catching fashion, making all and winning comfortably by six lengths. He then stepped up again in trip to win the Chester Vase in a similar manner. The way he made all again and never had a rival close to him shows just how much of a star A P O’Brien has on his hands.
He also has a lot of trends that support his selection:
- Six of the last nine winners won one of the key trial races beforehand (Chester Vase included).
- Four of the last ten winners were sired by Galileo.
- Eight of the last nine winners drawn in stall 7 of above (he’s in stall 16).
- Six of the last ten winners won last time out.
Also throw in to the stats that trainer A P O’Brien has won six of the last ten renewals of the race (including three of the last five), then you can see why we’re siding with him! He looks a fantastic option to take on the top two in the betting and we’re confident A P O’Brien has another stable star with Changingoftheguard.
England To Win To Nil Against Hungary (Saturday 5pm – Nations League) 1/1
Gareth Southgate’s ENGLAND side could hardly have an easier start to their Nations League campaign, with a trip to play Marco Rossi’s Hungary unlikely to strike fear into the England camp.
It could’ve been a slightly daunting fixture had it been played in front of a full crowd at the Puskas Arena, but due to crowd trouble when these sides last met here (England won 4-0), the ground will be played behind closed doors. Although 30,000 schoolchildren will now be in attendance, but that shouldn’t cause any problems!
Since their agonising defeat on penalties to Italy in the delayed Euro 2020 Final last year, England have gone on a nine-game unbeaten run, including seven wins. Six of those victories were to nil, with Switzerland being the only team to score when England have won. That run started with a comfortable 4-0 victory over Saturday’s opponents Hungary, in a game which England dominated from start to finish.
Hungary have also been in fine form, but haven’t been playing the sort of quality that they’ll face on Saturday. Since their 4-0 drubbing by England, they’ve won four of their last eight games. However, they’ve also lost three games in that time, all without scoring.
The Three Lions will be determined to get off to a winning start in the Nations League, and have the ideal game to do so. If they have ambitions of winning the trophy, they will need to be beating the weakest team in their group, and should do so comfortably.
Ukraine To Beat Wales + BTTS (Sunday 5pm – World Cup Qualifier) 11/2
This game should be a cracker! Both teams will be desperate to go to the World Cup in Dubai this winter, and in truth if Wales’ big guns turn up they could do enough, but we’re siding with the proven quality of UKRAINE to give the country a much-needed boost and send their team to their first World Cup since 2006.
The Ukrainers booked their spot in this play-off with a deserved victory away to Scotland, where they dominated almost every aspect of the game. Goals from Andriy Yarmolenko and Roman Yaremchuk put them in a comfortable position, before a Scotland goal ten minutes from time made things a little bit nerve-wracking. They defended resolutely however, and a sublime injury-time finish from substitute Artem Dovbyk ensured a deserved victory.
BOTH TEAMS TO SCORE looks a solid bet here, with each sides last four games seeing both teams score. Wales tend to always find the back of the net, only failing to score in one of their last nine matches (against Estonia of all teams!) – that run includes scoring against the likes of Belgium, Austria, Czech Republic and Poland. Ukraine are even more potent in front of goal, scoring in each of their last twelve games – including goals against France, Czech Republic and Scotland.
Wales will have a passionate Cardiff crowd behind them and will no doubt recall their big names for this, including their talisman Gareth Bale, but it may not be enough to beat the resilient Ukrainians here, who have some big names themselves, including Premier League winner Oleksandr Zinchenko. It’ll be a close game with plenty of goals, but we’re siding with Ukraine to edge it.
