Real Madrid v Atletico Madrid
The Champions League final brings a climax to the European domestic season and it is a repeat of the 2014 final with an all Madrid affair. Two years ago Atletico were moments away from a famous win before Real scored in injury time and went on to win in extra time and claim la decima.
I think it will be a fascinating final with some great attacking and defending as the two contrasting styles go at it. A few days ago I wrote about how we can watch it and make some guarantee risk free profits as an added bonus CLICK HERE
I have a feeling this will be the year that Atletico finally get their hands on old big ears as they have looked so strong in this competition and I haven't been particularly impressed with Real this season. Someone has Atletico so well organised defensively and in Torres and Griezmann they have a very potent attacking pair extremely capable of scoring on the break, as shown in the semi final against Barcelona.
We can get a best price of 9/4 on Atletico winning inside the 90 minutes and I think there is definite value in that and will be backing accordingly.
A Group 2 over six furlongs this is a great looking race with some real classy looking horses on show.
Mark Johnston runs Buratino who was well beaten in the Guineas when stepping up to a mile for the first time, however he was an excellent second place on his final run last year, just half a length behind the brilliant Shalaa in the Juddmonte. Reverting back to six furlongs is certain to suit and he is a big player in this.
Hugo Palmer runs the short priced favourite Gifted Master and he has won his last five races between six furlongs and a mile. He is getting better every race and will surely make a bold bid to complete a six timer here today. However, this is a step up in class again and although he gets three pounds from Buratino due to his win in a Group 2 last year, I think the he will struggle to get past him and expect the Johnston horse to show he class and win at a tasty price.
