Alvarado comes here after failing to get a run in the Aintree National. Had finished 4th in both 2014 and 2015 and was lightly raced. Fills most the strong trends and likes the longer distance. 25-1 and 5 places with PP. Masters Hill did well against Alvarado and several others lto. Doesn't always g...

Topic: Should Jose Mourinho Be Backed or Sacked by Chelsea?
Replies: 39
Views: 4816

The issues at Chelsea run deep, Mourinho's mask has slipped so much, it's become a comedy and a tragedy, and he seems paranoid and detached from reality. There seems a lack of responsibility and accountability throughout the side and that's stemmed from the manager. Jose often creates drama or talki...

Think most including myself will have excluded on weight. Last horse to win carrying more was Red Rum in 74, but with new system in place delivering heavier winners in recent years, it looks to be a red herring.

Well done on the winners.

I'm warming to First Lieutenant, I generally stay away from romantic story types as price is often too short. But certainly ticks a lot of the main boxes and is likely to be involved even if finding some too good. Trends seem to lead me towards Godsmejudge and Al co, Night in Milan and Monbeg Dude. ...

Tale of Spurs season, poor performance, but good fortune at both ends of the pitch.

Think they'll still find a way to get points here, but they have been clearly second best for much of this game.

On stats and form, it's easier to make a case for both teams to lose. Both teams lost narrowly lto, having both been thumped and outclassed in the matches prior to that. Both teams have lost 4 of last 6 and are not proving to be that difficult to beat. Given this is a derby, I'd stay away from low s...

Hugely important game for both teams, with Spurs able to jump up to 5th and retain a hope of top 4, while Burnley are fighting for survival. Interestingly, while Burnley have lost 4 of last 6, the points they got were a point away at Chelsea and a win at home to City. Spurs have been taken to task b...

Strange game, I didn't think Arsenal played that well, despite the scoreline. They defended well and took their chances, but it was a solid win rather than a highly impressive one. Second half, I think we saw why Rodgers switched to a back 3 earlier in the season, with Sakho and Toure taking risks, ...

Everton team sheet had Alcaraz scribbled out and Stones written after... :shock:

Stones has made a big difference in defence, more quality and confidence.

Although QPR have had several chances and look like they could yet make a game of this.

Fantastic first half, 4 goals and great to watch.

Just hoping for a single Hull goal second half. :hope:

Huge second half for both clubs.

Should have plenty of goals and mistakes if recent form is anything to go by. I'm going to try 3-2 and I'm favouring Everton to get the win, but difficult to know. Everton back from a midweek trip to Ukraine where they went out dismally. But QPR seem to be a team lacking belief and may manage to fin...

United look a bit shocked by it all, but think Di Maria will change things.
