Arsenal’s thumping win in the north London derby made it four in a row for Mikel Arteta’s side and they can pick up another victory on Saturday.
After a nightmarish start, the Gunners have been growing in confidence, helped by a new-found resilience at the back, while their reshuffled formation appears to have enabled Arteta to harness the creativity and energy of his squad.
Brighton are enjoying a strong start to their campaign and will be no pushovers, but in stark contrast to last season when they enjoyed no luck at all, they’ve been arguably a little fortunate to have accumulated 13 points so far. I think they will have a hard time containing their visitors and the away win looks a good bet.
There should be plenty of top-class jumping action in store over the next few months and Saturday’s Gowran Park card offers us a taste of what is to come in the form of the Grade Two PWC Champion Chase over two-and-a-half-miles.
Easy Game has been in fine form this summer, finishing second in the Galway Plate before winning at Listowel and will have a fitness edge over some of his rivals, including Queen Mother Champion Chase winner Put The Kettle On and the consistent Castlegrace Paddy, who has solid form at this level.
With more rain forecast, however, conditions may not be ideal for Easy Game and his Galway conqueror Royal Rendezvous could be a better bet. The nine-year-old has progressed steadily this summer and may yet have more improvement in him, while his ability to handle soft going will be an advantage here.
Six games into the campaign Newcastle are yet to register a win and the pressure is building again on Steve Bruce.
The point against Watford last weekend at least saw them threatening their opponent’s goal, and it could be argued that they deserved more from the game. That said, Wolves are a cut above the Hornets and the Magpies are not exactly reliable punting material so it would take a brave individual to back them here.
Bruno Lage’s side showed considerable character in recovering from a poor effort against Brentford to beat Southampton last time out and back in front of their own fans they can build on that success by seeing off their lacklustre visitors.
