Football: Belgium v Cyprus

Benteke
Cyprus test: Benteke

Belgium have made a sluggish start to their Euro 2016 qualifying campaign, taking just five points from a possible nine. They need to get back on track quickly and they should easily account for Cyprus on Saturday evening.

Cyprus have been hit hard by injuries and the youngsters that have been bought in by boss Charalampos Christodoulou are on a hiding to nothing.

Belgium may have lost Romelu Lukaku to injury, but they still have the likes of Premier League stars Eden Hazard, Vincent Kompany, Christian Benteke, Marouane Fellaini, plus Kevin Du Bruyne.

The only danger is that the World Cup quarter-finalists will take the Cypriots too lightly and they should be capable of winning by two clear goals or more. They should also win to nil at odds of 1.63.

BET: Belgium to win and over 2.5 goals @ 1.62

Racing: Rely on Brocklesby Bill

Bill Turner knows a thing or two about sharp two-year-old sprinters. There is arguably no finer trainer of juveniles, given the right ammunition.

The Dorset handler is not in the same league as those who are backed by Arab owners, with money that can buy the best bloodlines.

However, Turner knows a bargain and can get the best out of them.

He has a happy knack of farming the traditional turf-racing opener, the Brocklesby Stakes and hopefully the race will be named after him in due course. The Brocklesby Bill Turner Handicap has a nice ring to it.

Turner has saddled the winner five times since 2002 – The Lord (2002), Spoof Master (2006), Sallys Dilemma (2008), He’s So Cool (2011) and Mick’s Yer Man (2013).

Today he relies on Just That Lord, who is making his debut in the hands of Turner’s grandson, Ryan While, who takes 5lb off his back.

The son of Avonbridge is bred to better over slightly further in time, but the Flat season opener does not look a hugely competitive race and he may be capable of extending Turner’s great record in it.

SELECTION: Just That Lord (1:25 Doncaster)

Boxing: Kell Brook v Ionut Dan Ion

Kell Brook bids to defend his IBF World Welterweight title and there is going to be a lot of pressure on him in Sheffield.

This will be the first defence of his title, a return after serious injury, a pressure-cooker atmosphere and the prospect of a money-spinning fight next.

Brook (33-0, 22KOs) is looking at a clash with the winner of Floyd Mayweather v Manny Pacquiao, but he cannot afford to underestimate Jo Jo Dan (34-2, 28Kos), who is a southpaw and live underdog coming off five consecutive wins. The 33-year-old has also never been stopped and looks vastly over-priced at 6.80.

Brook, who earned an unlikely points decision when beating Shawn Porter to claim the title in Carson, California, suffered an horrific leg injury in a machete attack when on a family holiday in Tenerife soon after.

There were fears that the 28-year-old might never walk again, so serious was the wound to his left leg.

However, as long as the occasion does not get to him – he fights in front of 10,000 expectant home fans – Brook should win by a stoppage between rounds seven and 12.

SELECTION: Brock to win @ 1.07
