Women’s Football Gains Momentum Ahead of World Cup
Women’s football is gaining momentum in England, and this weekend the Lionesses will take on Portugal at Milton Keynes in their last game on home soil before they jet off to Australia and New Zealand for the Women’s World Cup. To avoid a clash with the men’s World Cup in Russia, the Newcastle and Newmarket racing double-header will be featured on ITV’s flagship channel. This means punters can enjoy the best of both worlds, taking in all the action without having to switch channels on a regular basis.
England Manager Sarina Wiegman Lifts Euro 2022 Trophy
England manager Sarina Wiegman lifted the Women’s Euro 2022 trophy last summer, and the team is now so popular that Saturday’s huge racing double-header at Newcastle and Newmarket will start in the morning and finish before the big game kicks off. Switching the Flat meetings to ITV4 is not possible because it is hosting the Tour de France – featuring sprint hero Mark Cavendish for the final time – for the next three weeks and the alternative was for some big races to be hidden away in the relative obscurity of ITV3.
Mark Cavendish Ready to Start His Last Tour de France
British cyclist Mark Cavendish is ready to start his last Tour de France before retiring. Punters can cheer on England to beat Portugal by more than two goals at 8/5 with Betfred after watching Zoffee take the Northumberland Plate at 8/1 with Sky Bet. They can also put their stakes on Witch Hunter, a 50/1 winner when beating 28 rivals in the Buckingham Palace cavalry charge at Royal Ascot, at 10/1 with Bet Victor for the Criterion. Wout Van Aert strongly appeals at 7/2 with Betfair to win the points classification at the Tour de France. Kent, Surrey and Durham form a lovely treble in the latest round of T20 Blast matches.

With Mark Cavendish ready to start his last Tour de France, there are plenty of betting opportunities for punters to take advantage of.
