Titles (like Prince of Penzance) or one word names do not count. This is strictly first and last names only. Who is more successful – favourites or outsiders? 2009 Outsiders, of course Pre-race favourites have only won the Cup 34 times out of 156, a rate of 21%. The last favourite to win was 2013’s Fiorente. WHO TO PICK THIS YEAR: Back an outsider and avoid the quince-flavoured Marmelo, or the returning champ Almadin.

Before that we only have Rimfire (1948) and Lantern (1864). Water-based names are much more successful, with six wins from horses like Subzero (1992), Rain Lover (1968-69) and Poseidon (1906). WHO TO PICK THIS YEAR: Back the watery winners, like Ventura Storm, Bondi Beach and Humidor. Avoid Wall of Fire, Rekindling and Red Cardinal. $10 million Bay Bay (i.e: reddish-brown) horses have won the Cup 68 times, vastly more than brown horses on 37. Black horses have only won three times. WHO TO PICK THIS YEAR: Every horse running is a bay, except Libran who can be classed “bay or brown”, and Single Gaze, who is chestnut. Pick any others.

McManaman Van Dijk Salah injuries could derail Liverpools title hopes

first_imgLiverpool legend Steve McManaman believes their Premier League title hopes could be left in jeopardy if Virgil van Dijk and Mohamed Salah got injuredThe Reds now lead by nine points from Tottenham, who lost 3-1 to Wolves, following Saturday’s 5-1 thrashing of Arsenal.Defending champions Manchester City are a further point behind in third, albeit with a game in hand against Southampton later today.Pep Guardiola’s side have endured a difficult month with injuries to some key players along with three defeats in their last four matches.And McManaman fears that Liverpool may find themselves in a similar struggle if they were to lose some of their own key men.“If Liverpool get a bad injury to Van Dijk or to Salah, at the same time, your thoughts start to change,” McManaman told BT Sport, via the Express.“Football is one of those things. When they say you have to take it game-by-game, that’s what you have to do. You have to hope everyone stays fit and the best team will win.“Of course Liverpool are absolutely flying at the moment but I’d still say Manchester City have got that little bit of an edge.Jose Mourinho is sold on Lampard succeeding at Chelsea Tomás Pavel Ibarra Meda – September 14, 2019 Jose Mourinho wanted to give his two cents on Frank Lampard’s odds as the new Chelsea FC manager, he thinks he will succeed.There really…“They have got them at home next and they have won the league before.”The ex-Real Madrid midfielder is wary of placing too much expectation on the high-flying Reds.He added: “I don’t want to put too much pressure on Liverpool. Of course I want Liverpool to win the league, it goes without saying.“They are frightening at this moment but every year we pick out teams to win the elague, to not win the league, and you fall flat on your face three months later.“If it’s in April and they’ve got that much point difference, I’m quite happy to shout it from the rooftops but they’ve got a long way to go.”Although second-place Spurs don’t stand a chance due to their lack of squad depth.“No disrespect to Tottenham, I never thought they were in it,” said McManaman.“I always thought that their lack of depth in the squad would count against them.”last_img read more
