A trip to Haydock Park is called for, as the Merseyside course will today host a £25,000 race in the form of the 16:20 Better With Bohle Handicap. Advance preparation for the race demands that we check out the latest horse racing naps from over at Sky Sports.

Although much of the UK is currently in a blistering heat wave, the turf will not be too firm at Haydock Park on Thursday. Expect the going to be good to firm for the seven horses of the 16:20 Handicap.

A number of horses are entering with hot form, so it is surprising to see Dannyday as the favourite at 9/4 after winning just one race from five in its career.

Tommy Docc is available at 3/1 and has three wins in its last five races, while Quest For Wonder is 11/2 and has won three and finished second three times in its last six races.

Argentina now have the chance to add a third Copa America trophy to their cabinet, while spoiling the party for tournament hosts Chile, who are attempting to win their first-ever Copa America.

Played out in the early hours of Wednesday morning (BST), Argentina stunned in yesterday’s matches by cruising past Paraguay with a stunning 6-1 victory.

Man Utd defender Marcos Rojo opened the scoring for La Albiceleste after just 15 minutes, with another added by PSG midfielder Javier Pastore on 27 minutes.

Lucas Barrios then caused concern for Argentina and their fans by dragging the score back to 2-1 after 43 minutes. After all, Paraguay did come from two behind to hold Argentina to a draw in their opening group game.

Argentina then claimed the second half in rampant form through goals from Ángel Di María (two), Sergio Agüero, and Gonzalo Higuaín. Leo Messi finally brought Argentina together by delivering three assists.
