Thereafter focus switches to Group A where Zimbabwe face another tough test against a Uganda side who are full of confidence after a 2-0 win over DR Congo. Zim lost their first match 1-0 to Egypt and can be backed at 12/5 to bounce back whilst the Cranes are currently favourites at 14/10 and the draw is trading at 19/10.
The final game of the day sees host nation Egypt bid to build on their win over Zim and they are 9/20 favourites to beat DR Congo. Mo Salah played but didn’t score in the tournament opener and he can backed at just over 3/1 to register the first goal here. Bet on Egypt v DR Congo here.

Copa America is heading towards the quarter finals and although there no matches on Wednesday the latest outright winner betting sees hosts Brazil trading at even money ahead of Uruguay (17/4) and Argentina and Colombia are next best at 21/4 and it’s 37/4 and the better the rest.
Cricket World Cup
Wednesday’s action in the Cricket World Cup sees Pakistan clash with New Zealand in Birmingham. Pakistan are back in the mix for a semi final place but they have no margin for error against the unbeaten Black Caps. We have a full match betting preview on this link where we take our chances with unpredictable Pakistan to be on a “going day”. Bet on New Zealand v Pakistan here.
Local racing comes from Greyville where the first of 8 races on the polytrack is due off at 12:15.
Looking ahead to the weekend we have betting available for Saturday’s features at Kenilworth. Silver Operator is currently 9/10 favourite for the Langerman, Helen”s Ideal tops the boards for the Winter Oaks at 18/10 and Majestic Mozart is 28/10 market leader for the Winter Derby. Matador Man is currently 5/2 favourite for the KZN Breeders Million Mile at Greyville on Saturday
The Andalucia Valderrama Masters gets underway on Thursday and Jon Rahm and Sergio Garcia currently head the betting at 6/1 and 7/1 respectively whilst Matthew Fitzpatrick is third best at 10/1 and you can get 20/1 and better the rest. Garcia is host of this tournament and he won this event in 2018 and also when it returned to the calendar in 2017. Garcia was also victorious in 2011 but whilst he is the obvious horse for courses pick his form right now is poor.
