Group positions hold key

Punters are advised to familiarise themselves with the group standings before placing bets on this week's international fixtures.

Results at this stage are often determined by the outcome that would suit one or both countries, and it is vital to know whether teams require a draw, a win, or are already out of the running for World Cup qualification.

Promoted trio aim to stay

Don't jump to easy conclusions about Sunderland, Wigan and West Ham - the three newcomers to the English Premiership.

The common view is that there is a massive gulf between England's top two divisions, but it doesn't tally with recent history.

Oughton hopes for change of fortune

Hong Kong sprinter Cape Of Good Hope bids to make it third time lucky today as he goes into battle again in one of Britain's top races. The David Oughton-trained gelding - narrowly beaten twice at Royal Ascot last month - lines up in the Group One Darley July Cup at Newmarket.

Group decisions

Home advantage means Portugal are also the best of the favourites in the group stages, as five of the last seven European Championship hosts have finished top of their section. France should finish top of Group B, but an odds-on bet makes no appeal, while Groups C and D are the most evenly balanced.
