All eyes are on Leicester this season although the markets don't believe that lightning will strike twice as Claudio Ranieri (right) and his men are 33/1 to retain the League title. Regardless, they can get their campaign off to a good start with an 11/10 win against a Hull side which failed to make any big summer signings.

Racing

Trained by Michael Stoute, Kings Fete should take all the beating around 5/6 in the Group Three Betfred Geoffrey Freer Stakes at Newbury (3.05) under jockey Pat Smullen. Having missed the 2015 season through injury, he finally won a Group race at Goodwood recently and should have more to come. Richard Hannon's Humphrey Bogart can follow him home.
