No shortage of quality entertainment on offer for sports fans once again this coming weekend, with an overload of international football fixtures, one of the biggest flat handicaps of the racing season, and the single biggest match of the rugby league calendar.

Here we run through what lies ahead and pick out a couple of the best new player offers for those looking to enhance the entertainment with a bet or two.

Friday 23 – Monday 26 September –– England in Action in UEFA Nation’s League

It’s a break for the Premier League this weekend, but fear not football fans, there is still no shortage of televised action in store, courtesy of the latest round of fixtures in the UEFA Nation’s League. England fans, in particular, have a cracking double-header to look forward to as Gareth Southgate’s men take on Italy at the San Siro on Friday evening, followed by Monday night’s fixture against old adversaries Germany at Wembley Stadium.

Italy may not be heading to the World Cup in Qatar, but Germany most certainly are, and this pair of games against two of the traditional giants of the global game is sure to provide a stern examination for the Three Lions. With places still up for grabs in the World Cup squad, motivation certainly shouldn’t prove an issue as England look to finish a disappointing Nation’s League campaign on a high. England are 6/4 favourites with Rhinobet to prevail in Italy, with the same firm rating them as 21/20 shots to come out on top in the home clash against Germany.

Saturday September 24: Horse Racing: Cambridgeshire Handicap at Newmarket

A cracking Saturday of action lies in store for racing fans with the pick of the eight cards on offer coming from Newmarket, as flat racing’s HQ plays host to the third and final day of the excellent Cambridgeshire meeting.

Potential Classic clues for next season may be gleaned from the Group 1 double act of the Middle Park Stakes and Cheveley Park Stakes, but it is the meetings titular handicap which takes centre stage from a betting perspective, as a field of 29 do battle over the 1m1f trip. The William Haggas runner Mujtaba is the clear favourite this year at 5/1 with Virgin Bet on the back of an easy success at Doncaster last time out. There is no shortage of live contenders here though, including fellow last-time-out scorers Protagonist, Savvy Victory and Kitsune Power, and George Boughey’s Totally Charming who looked a little unlucky in his most recent outing at Ascot. When making your selections in this race, don’t forget to factor in the draw, with each of the past six winners emerging from stall 21 or higher.
