Pandora Hughes is back with another weekend treble and she's banking on an entertaining draw in the big London derby on Saturday
“The Hammers have an excellent home record and will be keen to attack from the outset, in their usual style, but Chelsea’s away form is strong.”
This is usually one of the spiciest derbies in the football calendar and this latest renewal of the East-West London rivalry has an extra dimension as the two sides involved are locked together in the battle for the final Champions League spot.
West Ham slipped up last time out, losing 3-2 to Newcastle, but Chelsea were not able to take full advantage, being held to a draw by Brighton, and neither team is going into the closing stages of the season in peak form.
The Hammers have an excellent home record and will be keen to attack from the outset, in their usual style, but Chelsea's away form is strong. They are undefeated in their last six trips away from Stamford Bridge and have also kept five clean sheets in their last seven, so a hard-fought draw looks a good bet here.
Saturday's Sandown meeting effectively brings the curtain down on the 2020/21 UK jumps racing season and old favourite Altior is expected to be one of the day's most popular bets as he bids to end the campaign on a high in the Celebration Chase.
Nicky Henderson's charge was a no-show at Cheltenham so should be fresh enough for this prestigious event, but he is hardly one to rely on these days, and I think the favourite Put The Kettle On looks a solid bet.
The seven-year-old claimed the Queen Mother Champion Chase at Cheltenham, narrowly beating Nube Negra, who had previously overcome Altior convincingly in the Desert Orchid Chase. Sceau Royal rates as a danger, but has twice fallen short in this contest, so with improvement to come, Put The Kettle On is the best option.
It is often said that the league table doesn't lie, but Brighton fans in particular may take issue with that cliché given the way that their team has performed this season.
The Seagulls put in another solid effort against Chelsea on Tuesday, emerging with a creditable point, yet remain in 16th place, only seven points off the drop zone, and based on any statistical measure, Graham Potter's side rate considerably higher.
Fortunately, Fulham's loss of form means relegation is looking an unlikely danger at this stage, but Brighton can further ease any lingering worries this weekend against the already-relegated Blades who have lost nine of their last ten.
