Weekend Sports

3.5.14 German Bundesleague, Matchday 33. After fifty years of top flight football, the second league is now looming large for the Hamburger SV and deservedly so, because of too many players with a shocking salary-performance ratio. They play at home  against Bayern Munich, who secured the German championships at the end of March and completely lost the plot afterwards as was shown in the CL humiliation against Real Madrid. I still hold one of their players in high regard and that is CLAUDIO PIZARRO. He doensn't play very often these days, but when Pep Guardiola gives him another opportunity against a leaky Hamburg defense i am pretty sure he will deliver. Claudio to score twice @ 6.2 with Tipico ***VOID. Now over to the sport of kings. The first classic races of the flat season take place this weekend at Newmarket. Kingman is the hot fav of the 2000 Guineas Stakes, but i take him on with WAR COMMAND (USA, pictured) , trained by Ballydoyle master Aidan O'Brian. This powerful colt has won the Dewhurst Stakes in great style last year and that form bodes well for Saturdays contest. War Command to win @ odds of 9 with Betfair***UP. On Sunday then the fillies equivalent, the 1000 Guineas Stakes, will be run. The Andre Fabre trained MISS FRANCE (IRE) was the ante-post fav for a long time, but when she ran a stinker last time out with valid excuses, her price drifted out to 10 and i don't need a second invitation to get on.***WON
