A big weekend in Horseracing with the Guineas meeting taking place at The Curragh on Saturday and Sunday. On Saturday Newmarket 200 Guineas hero Cockney Rebel (6/5) will be all the rage to repeat his heroics and he is reportedly working very well on the gallops.
† On Sunday Jim Bolgerís Finsceal Beo will be all the rage to atone for her lapse in the French 1000 Guineas and she will be odds on to re-assert her dominance of the fillies scene this year.
† Itís another big weekend in the GAA championships and there is action in the Connacht Championships where Leitrim (1/5) travel to take on London (4/1) in Ruislip. The draw is available at 10/1.

In soccer the Championship play-off will be held at Wembley on Monday and the prices are as follows: (90 minutes) Derby 2/1 v WBA 11/8; draw 9/4.
Bet of the week: A double: Finsceal Beo and Cockney Rebel to rubber-stamp English Guineas form at the weekend.
