Saturday is loaded with prize money, and few courses are on the same level as Newmarket. Incredibly, the afternoon starts with a £45,000 race, which does not happen often in the season. For your horse racing naps of the day, we look to Sky Sports for hints about what is going to happen at Newmarket.

Ahead of the race, it is expected that the going will be good to firm (good in places) for the 13:40 Betway Handicap. Ten runners of at least three or older have entered. On the basis of form, Secret Art is a worthy favourite at 9/2 after winning or placing in its last three races.

Immediately after is the 14:15 Newsells Park Stud Stakes, open to fillies of three or older. Although a little further back at 5/2, Desert Snow has won its last two races and is in better form than 11/4 favourite Arabian Comet.

Many will be surprised by the Gold Cup score-lines in the football results from yesterday (16 July 2015). Mexico lined up against Trinidad & Tobago to decide the winner of group C and determine who gets to advance to the knockout stages in the strongest position. Incredibly, the game finished as a scintillating 4-4 draw.

Trinidad & Tobago came into the game with a two-point advantage, so a draw would be enough for them. And all appeared to be lost for Trinidad & Tobago after goals from Paul Aguilar and Carlos Vela gave Mexico a two-goal advantage on 51 minutes.

To their credit, however, Trinidad & Tobago fought back quickly by scoring two goals in two minutes (55 and 57). Next, they added a third to take a 3-2 advantage, but Mexico then tied the game after 88 minutes. A goal from either side on 90 minutes then brought the game to a thrilling conclusion.
