As the season reaches its climax it is worth looking at who we the fans see as the player of the season (being done it the style of a horse betting form)

Outsiders

Titus Bramble…100/1

Was a surprise favourite early in the season but a couple of stumbles mid season has seen him relegated to the gallops. Unlikely he would last the course.

Marlon King…100/1

Signed as a thoroughbred, but resembling a pony at present. Doesn`t look fit for this level of race.

Julius Agahahowa…100/1

Another big money purchase who has proved to be totally ineffectual. Expected to be sent to stud at the end of the season

Each way bets

Jason Koumas…60/1

A real class act on his day but doesn`t seem to like the heavy going.

Emerson Boyce…50/1

A steady goer who won`t let anyone down

Kevin Kilbane…40/1

The oldest in the field but has been a revelation coming from behind this season.

Emile Heskey…40/1

Has struggled with injuries this season but coming into form at the right time although may have left it too late for the big prize.

Antoine Siberski…40/1

A thoroughbred who may be past his best, better suited to shorter races as there are questions re fitness.

Marcus Bent…30/1

Has won his owner lots of praise but rumours are that his trainer doesn`t rate him

Good bets

Antonio Valencia….10/1

Probably the classiest runner in the field although has off days.

Michael Brown…8/1

A real tenacious stayer. Worth a punt

Wilson Palacios…8/1

Only came into the race part way through the season but has been a good purchase for the owner.

Chris Kirkland…7/1

Another one with questions over his fitness but has proved himself this season to be a class act

Front Runner

Paul Scharner…4/1

An indifferent start to the season but since getting a new trainer has become a superb front runner


Mario Melchiot….2/1

Has everything, class stamina and staying power. Must be favourite to win

If I was a betting man my money would go straight on Wilson Palacios to win at a canter
