The semi-finals of the Copa America 2015 have now been decided after Saturday’s matches. Chile will take on Peru on Tuesday, while Argentina will play Paraguay on Wednesday.

Argentina played Colombia first on Saturday, but 120 minutes were not long enough to give fans any goals. Despite attacking talent playing on both sides, nobody proved decisive enough to score. In the end, Argentina managed to emerge triumphant with a 5-4 victory on penalties.

Next up in yesterday’s matches, Brazil also played out a draw. Dunga’s team finished 1-1 after 90 minutes, but were unable to win in extra time. After penalties, Brazil were forced to exit after a 4-3 defeat.

Brazil had dominated possession with a 59% share. However, that only equated to six total attempts and three on target. Paraguay did much more with much less possession, mustering six shots on target after putting up 11 total attempts.

Coming fourth in the schedule is the most lucrative race of the afternoon: the 15:45 EBF Stallions Soba Conditions Stakes. Seven horses are entered to compete for a share of the £16,000 prize fund on behalf of their owners.

Move In Time has been identified as the clear favourite at 11/8 after winning twice and finishing second three times in its past five races, but competition could come from 9/4 prospect Spinatrix. Pipers Note should also compete at 7/2, having won three times in its last four outings.
