16:05 Lingfield – Major Muscari @ 6/1  The finale at Lingfield on Wednesday afternoon looks like the ideal race for Shaun Harris’ Major Muscari to continue his good form. The nine-year-old comes into this contest as a highly exposed type with a record that is patchy at best; however, his record in contests such as this is encouraging to say the least. Having run in Class 6 events over this trip three times at Lingfield, this C&D winner is yet to finish outside of the places, while his overall record at this level isn’t too bad either. He may have…

Atlético Madrid v Eibar Betting Tips: Away side can compete at Vicente Calderón

Having faced each other in the League less than two weeks ago, Atlético and Eibar go head-to-head once again as they meet in the quarter-finals of the Copa del Rey. When the pair took to the pitch in the league recently, it was Atlético who secured what might look like a routine 2-0 victory, although their hosts weren’t without chances and certainly have reasons to feel upbeat ahead of this one. There are two bets that catch the eye here and these are: ‘Both Teams to Score’, at a particularly appealing 6/4, and ‘Eibar to Score Over 0.5 Goals’ at 5/4. Thursday’s…

Alcorcón vs Alavés Betting Tips: La Liga side to show their quality

Wednesday night sees the rapid return of Spain’s premier cup competition as the action in the Copa del Rey continues to come thick and fast. Second division Alcorcón face La Liga opposition for the second time this season as they welcome Alavés to Estadio Municipal de Santo Domingo for the first-leg of this quarter-final. Having got the better of La Liga opposition once when toppling Espanyol in extra-time in the previous round, Alcorcón will be confident of going well once again, while Alavés, in avoiding all of the big-guns, will know that they’ve been awarded a wonderful opportunity to advance to the semis. From…

13:55 Kempton – Daydream @ 25/1 (each-way) The opening race at Kempton on Tuesday afternoon is a typically competitive looking Class 6 handicap; however, one runner who could potentially outrun his hefty price-tag is Tony Newcombe’s Daydream. This lightly-raced filly hasn’t really shown much to date, but didn’t run completely without promise when recently returning to action over 5f at Wolverhampton 11 days ago. Having been off the track for 242 days, the four-year-old acquitted herself reasonably well in 6th place, keeping on well at the finish. With that run under her belt, it wouldn’t be a surprise if she…

Lincoln City v Ipswich Betting Tips: Goals expected at Sincil Bank

Having finished all-square (2-2) less than two weeks ago, Lincoln and Ipswich take to the pitch for a second time as they go head-to-head for a place in the FA Cup 4th round at Sincil Bank. Given the respective standing of these two clubs, Ipswich will have been disappointed not to have got the job done at the first time of asking. However, considering how that game went, they were perhaps fortunate to earn a replay. Having gone behind early on, despite equalising shortly after, the Championship side were unable to take control of the game, so much so that…

Sporting Gijón v Eibar Betting Tips: Another tough evening in store for Rojiblancos

A struggling Sporting Gijón side play host to a thriving Eibar at El Molinón on Sunday evening. Having enjoyed contrasting campaigns so far, these two approach this fixture in dissimilar form. Gijón find themselves involved in yet another relegation scrap, while Eibar continue to perform above what many would say is their station and sit nicely in 10th position. The home side are without a league win since early September and are hard to fancy from a betting point of view. On the other hand, it’s easy to feel good about Eibar’s chances and the visitors are the team to be with.…

Celta Vigo v Alavés Betting Tips: Basque side not without a shout at Balaídos

A team who continue to win at home play host to a team who just won’t lose on the road in La Liga on Sunday as Celta Vigo welcome Alavés to Balaídos. Based on their respective expectations at the start of the campaign, it’s probably fair to say that both Celta and Alavés will be happy with the way things have gone so far. The hosts are picking up points more often than not, especially at home, and aren’t too far off the European spots, while Alavés, as a newly promoted side, have certainly surprised a few and are sitting in a rather lofty…

13:40 Wetherby – El Massivo @ 5/1 The 13:40 at Wetherby looks to be an ideal opportunity for Harriet Bethell’s El Massivo to resume winning ways. The seven-year-old has run a couple of nice races in defeat since winning over C&D back in April of last year and comes into this race with plenty in favour. He’s back down to his last winning mark, has been in decent form of late and returns to the scene of his last victory. Having disappointed on his first couple of runs this season, it would appear as though El Massivo is now back…

Bolton v Swindon Betting Tips: Trotters to prove too good on home soil

High-flying Bolton play host to a struggling Swindon outfit at The Macron on Saturday afternoon in a match where securing three points is a must for both. Swindon haven’t enjoyed a particularly good campaign so far and if they’re not careful could find themselves sucked into the relegation scrap. On the other hand, Bolton have established themselves as one of the divisions strongest teams this season, but will need to continue winning matches in order to keep the pace with the league’s leading pair. This match against a side who’ve found it tough to find their feet of late, especially…

Preston v Brighton Betting Tips: Hughton’s men to once again deliver the goods

Off the back of being dealt a 90th minute hammer-blow from Arsenal in the FA Cup, Preston welcome league leaders Brighton to Deepdale on Saturday afternoon as the focus of both switches back to matters in the Championship. The hosts haven’t exactly been at their best recently, especially at home. Just win one in their last six on home soil is one of the main reasons as to why Preston have failed to break free from their mid-table shackles. As for the visitors, Brighton have been in quite scintillating form lately. Five league wins on the bounce has seen the…

14:40 Taunton – Sleep Easy @ 8/1  The unexposed Sleep Easy for Neil Mulholland, now stepping up in trip, is one who catches the eye in the 14:40 at Taunton. Having brushed aside a field of nine when comfortably winning on hurdle debut back in March 2016 at Stratford – form that is definitely a positive given the similarities Stratford and Taunton share in terms of track style – the five-year-old has performed with plenty of credit on both of his starts in handicap company since reappearing in October.

14:40 Wolverhampton – Savannah Beau @ 6/1  The second race at Wolverhampton on Wednesday afternoon looks as good a place as any for Iain Jardine’s Savannah Beau to get back on track after a disappointing showing last time out. In winning at Class 5 level on three occasions prior to this event, the mare has plenty of encouraging form in the book and, if all is well, she should be capable of running a big race in this field. Having never previously won over 6f, Savannah Beau moved to Jardine’s stable around October time – a change which saw an…

Barcelona v Athletic Bilbao Betting Tips: Camp Nou set for goal-filled encounter

Barcelona welcome their conquerors from last Thursday to Camp Nou on Wednesday night as they attempt to overturn a one goal deficit in this Copa del Rey last-16 second leg against Athletic Bilbao. Try as they did – having been stunned by two first half Bilbao goals – Luis Enrique’s men were unable to restore parity in the first leg, although it has to be that this was probably more to do with a combination of refereeing decisions going against them and just poor luck rather than any failure to create scoring opportunities. One thing that is becoming more and…

Villarreal v Real Sociedad Betting Tips: Second leg to follow same path as the first

Villarreal and Sociedad will meet each other for the second time in a week as they come together at Estadio El Madrigal for the second leg of this Copa del Rey last-16 tie. Having secured a fairly convincing home victory in the first leg (3-1), Eusebio Sacristán and his Sociedad team will be reasonably confident that they can make it through to the last eight of the competition; however, in conceding a late goal last Wednesday their lead isn’t as secure as it would’ve been and Villarreal – a team who’re tough to face on their own patch – aren’t out…

Osasuna v Valencia Betting Tips: No respite for Los Rojillos

Osasuna welcome Valencia to Estadio El Sadar on Monday night as two teams who’ve fallen on hard times look to improve their fortunes. Having struggled from the off, Osasuna have never really been at the races this season and, barring a miracle, it looks as though the side from Pamplona, who’ve recently changed manager for the third time since the start of the campaign, will be heading straight back down to the second division in May. Things haven’t gone too much better for the visitors either. Valencia fans are accustomed to seeing their side sit three or four places from…

Celta Vigo welcome Málaga to Balaídos on Sunday evening as both teams look to kick-on in their attempts to sure European football next season. These two sides, both of whom sit on 21 points, certainly haven’t scaled the heights so far this season, but they just about remain within striking distance of the top-six, knowing that a decent run of results would see them rise up in no time at all. From a betting point of view, there are two eye-catching selections ahead of this fixture. ‘Over 3.5 Goals’ and ‘Malaga to Score Over 1.5 Goals’, at odds of 2/1 and 11/5…

Real Betis v Leganés Betting Tips: Visitors not to be discounted in Seville

Real Betis play host to Leganés at Estadio Benito Villamarín on Sunday afternoon in a match that sees two teams who’re close together in the table go head-to-head. Neither of these two teams have done anything special this season, in fact quite the opposite, but it is undoubtedly Leganés, as the newly promoted side, who will be happier with the way their campaign has gone so far. Having earned promotion from the second tier last season, Leganés have adapted well to life in La Liga and should be fairly pleased with the fact that they’re currently sitting above the relegation-zone by four points.…

The eight-year-old has performed with real credit on his three starts this season, including when an easy winner over C&D less than two months ago, and it looks as though it’s just a matter of time before he goes in again. Having overcome a lengthy absence to score in fine style over C&D in November, the gelding has gone on to run two encouraging races. His 2nd at…

Liverpool v Plymouth Betting Tips: Hosts to put League Two opposition to the sword

Premier League high-flyers play host to League Two opposition on Sunday when they welcome Plymouth Argyle to Anfield for the FA Cup 3rd round. Both of these two have been enjoying pleasing campaigns in their respective divisions, although, what with the huge gulf in class, there can only be one winner here. Plymouth will of course be relishing the chance to face players of the highest quality at one of the country’s most iconic stadiums, but, realistically, it would appear as if this is where their FA Cup run will both peak and end. Liverpool, even with changes in personnel…

Lincoln are one of just four non-league teams still left in the competition at this stage and, having knocked out League One’s Oldham in the previous round, will come into this match in good spirits. Having said that, the hosts know that they’ve been handed a golden opportunity to make it through to the 4th round – an opportunity that they really should be grabbing with both hands.

The filly remains unexposed over the long distances, but has performed well each time she’s stepped up so far. Having previously won around here over 7f (Class 5) back in March, she went on to put in a series of average performances over both that trip and a mile. However, since tackling the longer distances her…

One who certainly can’t is Stone Quercus for Donald McCain. The four-year-old looks to have been dropped into a winnable contest and should go well. Having readily beaten a couple of reasonable types over this trip at Perth back in September, the gelding has since thrown down a very respectable effort (finished a close-up 2nd) over C&D – an effort that, if repeated, would…

Deportivo La Coruña v Alavés Betting Tips: Visitors too big ahead of cup clash

One of Tuesday night’s Copa del Rey matches sees La Coruña welcome Alavés to Estadio Riazor. Before Christmas saw football put to one side in Spain, La Coruña made it through to the last-16 of this competition courtesy of a 3-1 victory over Real Betis having previously lost 1-0 in the first-leg. As for Alavés, the Basque club could hardly have been more convincing in beating Gimnàstic 6-0 on aggregate to reach this stage of the competition and, considering the season they’re having in general, they’ll surely fancy their chances of progressing further. Of the two teams, it is newly promoted Alavés who…

Four times a winner at Lingfield, the seven-year-old has plenty of solid form in the book and looks as though he might just be in the right of sort race here.
