After yesterday's EFL Cup action, there's no let up for fans of the 'beautiful game', as Southampton host Sunderland, West Ham face London rivals Chelsea and Manchester's giants, United and City go head-to-head. There's also India v New Zealand
It’s going to be a mammoth Saturday for the stable with 19 runners up and down the country and hopefully there will be plenty of winners among them!

We will be flying the Union Jack over in America this weekend where DAYS OF HEAVEN takes his chance in the American Grand National tomorrow night and we’re all looking forward to seeing how he goes! It’s huge prize and there are only eight runners so there’s lots of money on offer.
We're heading towards the end of the season so we don't have quite as many runners as usual because some are done for the year, but there are still plenty to go to war with and lots more winners waiting to happen. Our horsebox will be heading to York and Newmarket tomorrow and it's a case of quality over quantity.
