Five things to look out for this weekend

This weekend is another packed couple of days of sporting action, with plenty to look out for across a broad range of events.

The Premier League continues with Arsenal facing Nottingham Forest on Sunday, with Manchester City heading to Leicester City a day earlier.

There is also more action from the Rugby League World Cup as well as the Mexican Grand Prix and European Championship darts from Dortmund.

Meanwhile, the highlight of the racing calendar is the bet365 Charlie Hall Chase at Wetherby on Saturday afternoon.

The bet365 Charlie Hall Chase takes place at Wetherby on Saturday with plenty of big names looking to scoop the prize in Yorkshire.

Bravemansgame and Ahoy Senor will renew their rivalries after the latter defeated the former in April in the Grade One Mildmay Noveis' Chase at Aintree.

That loss brought to an end a run of four straight wins for Paul Nicholl's seven-year-old and he will hope to get back on the winning trial again.

Bryony Frost will saddle Eldorado Allen, who was third in the Ryanair Chase at Cheltenham.

Football: Arsenal seek to maintain momentum

OddsArsenal 1/5, Draw 6/1, Nottingham Forest 11/1

Arsenal still sit top of the pile in the Premier League after what has been a magnificent season thus far for Mikel Arteta's side, but this week has been a challenging one.

They could only draw 1-1 at Southampton last weekend with Arteta critical of his side's performance in the second half and then they were well-beaten by PSV in the Europa League on Thursday.

It means Arsenal begin the weekend with something to prove and they will feel their match against Nottingham Forest offers them a good chance to do that.

However, the Tricky Trees will be feeling reinvigorated following just their second win of the season last weekend - a 1-0 triumph against Liverpool which proved they can compete at this level.

Before the Gunners play, Manchester City go to Leicester City and could go top of the standings if they take all three points.

Rugby League: England seek to end group stage in style

OddsEngland 1/1000, Greece 100/1

The Rugby World Cup has so far gone swimmingly for England, who are seeking to win the tournament on their own patch.

They have won both their group games so far, crushing Samoa 60-6 before overcoming a spirited France side last week 42-18.

Now, they are preparing to make it three wins from three and are facing what is on paper at least, their simplest assignment in the form of tournament debutants Greece.

They were beaten 34-12 in their opening match against France before Samoa responded to their England thrashing with a 72-4 win.

It means it is all teed up to be a one-sided affair and England will look to advance through with minimal fuss.

Max Verstappen has already won the 2022 Driver's Championship this season and is now targeting more records before the season ends next month.

On Sunday, the F1 entourage heads away from the USA, south of the border to Mexico, and Verstappen could become the first driver to win 14 races in a single season, beating a record jointly held by Sebastian Vettel and Michael Schumacher.

He stormed through to win in Austin last weekend with the Red Bull car in a class of its own on race day, even if their qualifying pace doesn't necessarily match it.

Sergio Perez will also be hoping to put in a big performance at his home race, with the Mexican aiming for a third win of the season after successes in Monaco and Singapore.
