-2pts (-2.36) & -2pts (-2.30)

Fishbone's double never looked in it, with both legs going 2 goals down and never looking like recovering unfortunately.

For DC's pick, Brit Konta let the double down by losing in the exciting tennis match where people hit the ball to each other. She lost cos she's British. In the other leg, some no mark Eastern European, who I'll never remember due to having an identical name to 37 other players, hit her ball better and won.

Chelsea to win to nil tonight @ 13/8 looks tempting
Man Utd don't have any recognised strikers in the squad due to illness, injury and suspension

Also Chelsea -2 handicap @6/1

Since the striker news come out people have been backing Chelsea and the odds have been dropping all morning

Two long running streaks went on those two picks, Exeter not losing at home since November and Fleetwood not losing at all since November. Oh well.

Crazy that you can still get 4/5 or 5/6 (Skybet for the latter) just on the win for Chelsea.

Have gone for £10 on that and £5 each on the win with Hazard (3/1) and Costa (13/8) scoring.

The New One is tremendous each way value in tomorrow's Champion Hurdle at 14/1. Unlike a lot of the others he has proven experience at this level. This race is somewhat lacking the class of previous Champion Hurdles and it could finally be his year, connections are confident and it would not be a surprise to see him go a few places better than he's managed before.

Petit Mouchoir finished a neck short of Buveur D'Air to come 2nd at Aintree last year going off at 40/1. He has moved yards since then coming on leaps and bounds and now looks like a proper prospect. I also think he is overpriced at 15/2 and could go either way whether to back him EW or win only.

These are my 2 main selections for tomorrow.

High Bridge in the Supreme is also a fancy but I wouldn't go any further than that. Impressive last time out and is a huge price in a fairly unpredictable race.

-3pts (-3.39)

Final was in contention generally, but the eventual winner had the extra strength in the final 2 furlongs and pulled away to win pretty comfortably.

Everyone generally does crap cos no one calls the races right, regardless of expertise or form.
Same with the Grand National.... every race before it pales into insignificance.

It's all pretty much an open field and most form goes out the window.

Your best bet would be to choose 2 runners in fields (That don't contain Douvan, Altior etc) and place flat half stakes on odds between 12/1 and 25/1 in each race.
