It’s Irish Guineas weekend at the Curragh and in the hunt for a Guineas double is English 2000 winner Galileo Gold (7/4) who looks the one they all have to beat on Saturday after that Newmarket win.
Aidan O’Brien has entered Air Force Blue who will try and redeem his reputation after that flat run at Newmarket, but the Hugo Palmer-trained horse is the one they all have to beat – one negative is that the stable is not in great form at the minute and Atwaad could be primed for a big run at 5s.
On to Sunday, Minding at 2-5 on will take all the beating in the 1000 Guineas with Now or Never (9/2) the danger after she romped home at Leopardstown and the Michael O’Callaghan-trained horse might just surprise with the wily Kieran Fallon on board.
We also have the Group 1 Tattersalls Gold Cup and the Ballydoyle stable have Found (1/1) entered who will take some stopping in a cracking looking renewal.
Great racing at Haydock on Saturday and we start with the feature race, the Temple Stakes at 4.10.
The John Gosden-trained Waady (8/1) ticks all the right boxes after a fine comeback run at Newmarket.
Over at York we have the listed weddingmates.co.uk Grand Cup (2.40) We like the progressive Mr Singh (5/2) who could be a stayer in the maker and strike yet again for the in-form John Gosden yard while Oh This Is Us (9/1) makes up the #pgtrixie bet in the 3.25 at Goodwood.
Goals Galore for Cup Final Day
We are in for a double feast of finals with the Scottish and English FA Cups taking place on Saturday and we are going goals galore in both finals..
We start at Wembley (5.30pm) and we have Manchester United (10/11) taking on Crystal Palace. Louis Van Gaal will hope to end this difficult season on a high, but I don’t think winning the FA Cup will save his bacon.
Striker, Anthony Martial could be the key for the Reds on Saturday and looks a solid bet at 11-2 to open the scoring at Wembley.
The Eagles will hope to end their season on a high and are around 4/1. Alan Pardew will have his team fired up for this one and the likes of Yannick Bolasie and Wilfred Saha will give the United defence a few scares.
We are going and hoping for a classic final and are taking a 3-2 Man Utd win at 33/1 and it’s a massive as 120-1 with the Martial 3-2 scorecast.
Up in Scotland we have the Scottish FA Cup at Hampden Park with Championship clubs Rangers (10/11) and Hibs battling it out for the last piece of silverware up for grabs in Scotland.
Again we are again going for goals galore in this one and are taking newly promoted Rangers to win 4-2 which is priced at 40/1. Add veteran striker Kenny Miller to score the first goal at 5/1 and you come up with a 140/1 scorecast – aiming big this weekend and Scorecast bets worth a £1 or 2.
Other PG cup final punts:
Over 4.5 goals in each final pays 65/1
Man Utd/Rangers result rush wins which pays around 17/1.
