"Roger Charlton's AL KAZEEM has already beaten Camelot last time out at the Curragh. He was injured previous to that, but has a very good record. He has to wins from three runs over this ten furlong distance and has only been out of the frame once in his ten runs and that was on debut (five wins). The one to beat here. "
"Alan Swinbanks EUTROPIUS was beaten favourite last time out when runner up to Our Ivor at Southwell a month ago. Stepping up to ten furlongs today, but looks like he will get the trip. He's going off a decent mark again today. He has two wins and two places from five runs and can get back to winning ways today. "
"Italy won their first game in this tournament while Japan lost their first game. Italy played well enough against Mexico with Pirlo pulling the strings. Japan were resoundly beeaten in the end by Brazil. If Italy win this it should be enough for them to progress. Italy are unbeaten in seven games and should have enough to beat a Japan side sho have only won one in five. "
"Group A consists of Brazil, Italy, Mexico and Japan. Brazil are hosting this competition and will be hard to beat at home. They haven't been in the best of form coming into this competition, drawing our out of their last five games. Scolari must win this competition to appease the fans and the Brazilian FA. I think they are good enough to win this group and the competition. "
"Spain have an incredible unbeaten record and the last time they lost a game it was November 2011 against England. Which is twenty games. They look to be in the weakest group here and although they will be without Xabi Alonso through injury they have an embarrasment of riches and should win this group with ease. "
"The West Indies have a cracking squad of players. We have seen them in the IPL and although this is in the One day format (not 20/20), I still they can perform. They have the likes of Chris Gayle, Keiron Pollard, Darren Sammy, Dwayne Bravo, Sunil Narine and many more to call on. I think the squad has plenty of experience and they have a fantastic chance of making the final. "
India (Test Series)
"Normally an England backer, I am going against the grain a bit here, but I am also a fan of Indian cricket, so it's not like I'm backing Australia. India have a formidable squad to choose from, but the form of Shikhar Dharwan is superb since he's come back from injury and a major plus for the squad. Posting a score or chasing MS Dhoni has tremendous experience. The bowlers will obviously need to step up, but Amith Mishra has had a very decent IPL. India to beat the Wesr Indies in the final for me! "
"Brazil, Italy & Spain are the main players here in this competition, but Uruguay and Mexico are not far behind. Brazil on home soil will be hard to beat and are slight favoruites with Spain next on the list. Xabi Alonso is out of the Spain squad and they will miss him, but Brazil hold all the cards for me. They have a strong and talented squad and they have experienced Luis Felipe Scolari at the helm. They will be using this competition as a run up for them holding the World Cup and I think they will go well on home soil. "
Rodriguez Pedro Spain (Top Goalscorer)
"Spain are in probably the weaker of the two groups and will fancy their chances against the likes of Tahiti and Nigeria in the groups stages. It will all depend on who Del Bosque starts with up front, but Pedro may start on the wing and he pops up and gets plenty of goals. He a decent prices for an each way shout (top 3 places). "
Guedes Fred Brazil (Top Goalscorer)
"All eyes will not doubt be on the new Barca signing Neymar, but FRED is my choice to be Brazilian top scorer and tournament top scorer. I was impressed at Wembley and at Rio when they played England. He looks to be first choice for Scolari and I think the home nation will go all the way. "
"Going in very early on this one and for the 2014 Premier League winners it;s CHELSEA for me. Their young and talented squad will only get better next season. News that Falcao have Atletico's permission to go if he wants to and Jose Mourinho is leaving Real at the end of the season, things could get interesting. Neither has confirmed anything yet, but if they were to join Chelsea they would most definately bring the quality up at Stamford Bridge. Chelsea for the title for mer. "
