Pandora Hughes is back with another weekend multiple and she's banking on Leeds earning a point from their trip to the south coast.
“The Seagulls have played well without reward on several occasions during this campaign, but they have also established themselves as the top-flight draw specialists, registering 13 stalemates from 33 games.”
Their defeat at Bramall Lane was a shock, but Brighton are still odds-on to avoid relegation and they look a good bet for a draw on Saturday.
The Seagulls have played well without reward on several occasions during this campaign, but they have also established themselves as the top-flight draw specialists, registering 13 stalemates from 33 games.
Saturday's visitors have been in excellent form, going six games undefeated, including draws against Chelsea, Manchester United and Liverpool, as well as a famous win at Manchester City. But with nothing to play for, they may struggle to raise their game for this far less glamourous fixture, so I'll be siding with the draw.
Six runners will line up for what looks like a wide-open renewal of the Jockey Club Stakes at Newmarket on Saturday, and Sir Ron Priestley looks a solid bet.
The five-year-old is up against some stiff competition, including St Leger third Pyledriver, but a small-field twelve-furlong race may not play to Pyledriver's strengths, while the in-form Bangkok could find this trip too taxing.
Al Zaraqaan could be a danger if translating his All-Weather form to the turf, but Sir Ron Priestly seemed to improve with every run last season, beating Pyledriver in the St Leger, and has returned in good form, landing the Further Flight Stakes earlier this month. With fitness on his side, he could take some stopping.
Carlo Ancelotti's Everton have not been the most reliable of teams this season but I think they're worth a bet to edge out Aston Villa on Saturday.
The Toffees ended a six-match unbeaten run when they beat Arsenal last time out and although they were a little fortunate to earn the three points, that win propelled them back into contention for a Champions League spot.
By contrast, there were signs in last weekend's West Midlands derby that Aston Villa may be running out of gas. Without Jack Grealish, they have won only one of their last eight and with little to play for, their season is effectively over. Everton have let us down a few times this year, but they have the talent to win this.
