Chelsea are 8/13 favourites to win the Premier League outright but they haven't quite shaken off Man United just yet so all games remain absolutely crucial.

Carlo Ancelotti's men know that the title is on a knife-edge so expect a full-on assault from the Pensioners at home against Stoke tomorrow. If you shop around, you can get 8/15 for the Chelsea half-time/full-time result, which is a fair reflection of their chances.


The Richard Hannon-trained Deauville Post will probably be odds-on in the St Helens Star Maiden Stakes (8.05 Haydock) but this is a big step down in class for the colt and he could have upwards of 20lbs in hand if running to form. Pat Dobbs takes the reins but this is definitely one of his easier assignments for the evening.
