We take a look at some of the sports betting opportunities available to punters on Thursday in our Daily Diary.
The Europa League continues on Thursday night with plenty of fixtures for punters to get stuck into.
Manchester United currently top Group L with 2 wins and a draw and they will be looking to extend their lead when they host FK Partizan and they are 4/10 for the victory with the draw 16/5 and the visitors 15/2. We fancy a comfortable win for United and you can get them on the handicap of (-1), meaning they have got to win by 2 goals or more at a current price of 23/20.

Wolves are also priced at 4/10 to win their match at home to Slovan Bratislava who are 15/2 for the win. Wolves are currently 2nd in the Group, 2 points ahead of their opponents and a victory here would go a long way towards ensuring their qualification for the knock-out stages.

Group J certainly looks as one of our more competitive Groups with Roma currently on 5 points, a point clear of Basaksehir and Wolfsberger, both on 4. Borussia Monchengladbach is just 3 points off the gallop and a victory at home to Roma tomorrow night would put them right into the mix. They are 21/20 to do just that with Roma 47/20 and the draw 27/10.
The other match in the Group also looks competitive with Wolfsberger 11/10 to see off Basaksehir who are 47/20 with the draw 51/20.

Local Horse Racing takes place at the Turffontein Inside Track on Thursday with an 8 race card getting going at 13:10 and scheduled to finish at 17:20.
Poppycock should be well backed in the 2nd Race, Horse No. 1 currently priced at 12/10 a win and 1/5 a Top 3 finish. There are no obvious Pick Six bankers on the cards although Horse No. 6 in the 6th Race, Spero Optima may well be worth the gamble at a current price of 15/10 and overall the card has a very open look to it.
