Euro 2016 - France
The action continues in France with the final three Quarter Finals of Euro 2016 taking place in early July, leading up to the eventual final on Sunday 10th July. After England's embarassing exit at the hands of Iceland, Wales carry the flag as the only UK team left in the competition.
With Portugal having beaten Poland on penalties to reach the semi-finals, the outright odds have been updated and look like this:
France remain the slight favourites with their 'easy' Quarter Final draw against Iceland compared to Germany's tough tie against Italy. Germany have probably been the most impressive team in the tournament so far though, so if they can beat Italy that will raise hopes that they can go on and win it. The other half of the draw looks interesting and Wales still offer value at 25/1
for those hoping for a Leicester style upset.Euro 2016 Top Goalscorer

One of the real highlights of the tennis season and of the British summer, the action takes place at Wimbledon between the 27th June running up to the final on 10th July. Andy Murray will be hoping for another good tournament and will hope to get over the line in a major final again after losing a few recently to his arch rival and nemesis Novak Djokovic.
Current odds for the mens singles are as follows:
Novak Djokovic 4/5
Andy Murray 3/1
Roger Federer 14/1
Milos Raonic 25/1
Nick Kyrgios 33/1
It really does look a 2 horse race right now for the Wimbledon Men's title. It's very hard to see past Novak Djokovic on recent form and tournament success over his closest rival Andy Murray. Federer is way back in the betting on 14/1
, but he always does well at Wimbledon so maybe there is life in the old dog yet.Horse Racing - Newmarket July Meeting and Glorious Goodwood
The Newmarket July Meeting takes place from 7th to 9th July if you need a break from all the football and tennis. This is a strong meeting on the flat racing card and should feature some top flat horses.
At the end of the month from 26th to the 30th July sees Glorious Goodwood, one of the most popular flat meetings of the season. With no football or tennis to compete with, this horse racing spectacular should take centre stage for betting punters and hopefully the weather will be as glorious as the horse racing.
