Insight from the bookies ahead of the weekend of sport with Premier League football and racing at Newmarket

IT IS another big week of sport where the Premier League could be decided following the exciting Champions League games, and the flat racing season kicks off in style at Newmarket.

And we're on hand with the latest from the bookies, looking where the money is going and any market movers from BoyleSports' spokesman Lawrence Lyons.


Horse Racing

The weekend throws up the first Classics of the year at Newmarket and Saturday’s renewal of the 2000 Guineas looks like a wide-open affair.

Our book reflects that with no specific one-horse liability. One Ruler has been easy to back since William Buick deserted him to ride Master of the Seas.

Wembley and Thunder Moon have been disputing favouritism and the former has edged ahead at the moment at 4/1, but we couldn’t be certain which one is going to go off favourite.

It's a completely different story in the 1000 Guineas where we have a one-horse book by way of Santa Barbara, who has been very strongly supported since the middle of March when 10/1 was up for grabs.

She’s just a 6/5 shot now and we expect the liability to increase should her trainer land the 2000 Guineas with any one of his three runners.



Manchester City have gone 8/13 from 11/8 to land the Champions League for the first time after they came from behind to win their away leg against Paris St Germain 2-1.

But there’s loose ends to tie up domestically with a trip to Crystal Palace next to tick off on Pep’s march to the title.

Saturday’s hosts have failed to win any of their last 18 league games against sides who started the day in the top six and at 1/3 Manchester City are the most occurring side appearing in this weekend’s accumulators.

A Champions League Final showdown with Chelsea is on the cards and the Blues go into Saturday evening’s clash with Fulham unbeaten in their last 20 against their London neighbours.

They have been a different proposition under Thomas Tuchel and are hot 1/2 shots to bag another three points in the fascinating tussle for the top four.

They make up the second leg of the weekend’s most popular treble, which pays out at 11/5 and also includes already promoted Norwich City, who can secure the Championship trophy with a win against Reading (6/10).
