Horse racing punters can often be a superstitious bunch so will that stop them from getting involved in day two of the Aintree Festival? It falls on Friday the 13th this year but providing nothing drastic goes wrong at the Liverpool track, we should be in for a cracking day of racing.
The Grand National is the most popular, highly anticipated handicap race of the entire National Hunt season. It’s the highlight of the festival that bares its name at Aintree this week but it’s not the only big field handicap of the three day meeting.
What a week this could be for Liverpool. Jurgen Klopp’s men have a chance to qualify for the Champions League semi-finals against Manchester City and the Merseyside derby at Goodison Park is sandwiched in between.
Chelsea are not your typical football club. The Blues have been in a cycle of boom and bust ever since Roman Abramovic took over the club and while they’ve had unprecedented levels of success in recent years, it’s not always easy being a Chelsea fan.
It’s been apparent for many months that Manchester City would be victorious in the hunt for this season’s Premier League title. Although the bookies have long since stopped offering odds on the title race, Pep Guardiola has refused to rule anything out until the title is won. Well, City are just one win away from confirming themselves as the best team in the country and they can wrap it up with a win in the Manchester derby at the Etihad on Saturday evening.
