Fred Done - co-founder of Super League sponsors Betfred - looks ahead to Friday's mammoth clash between the competition's top two...

IT doesn’t get much better than the new Betfred Super League leaders taking on the now second-place St Helens on Friday.

Warrington, just like the Grand National winner, are on a roll!

They are certainly in a better place than Saints, who amazingly went down 18-10 to rollercoaster club Catalans in France.

That put paid to Saints’ 100 per cent start to the season.

And with in-form Wire hammering London Broncos, it is Steve Price’s team who are top of the pile now thanks to their superior points difference.

Betfred have Saints 4/7 favourites to win on Friday but the momentum is with the Wolves, who are 11/8.

The game of the season is generating huge interest and rightly so, especially now favourites Saints have drifted slightly to 13/8 for Grand Final glory with Wire 7/4 and comeback kings Castleford 7/1.

Saints will be out to put the defeat in France behind them and get quickly back to winning ways while Price will naturally be smelling blood and looking to reinforce Warrington’s advantage at the summit.

Winger Josh Charnley is 9/1 at Betfred to score first, while Blake Austin is available at an attractive 14/1.

For Saints, Mark Percival is 11/1 to go over first and the home side’s own Aussie superstar Lachlan Coote is 18/1.

It will be close between two clubs who both play with an open style – and I just can’t wait for the showdown.

Meanwhile, I’m still coming to terms with huge favourite Tiger Roll winning the Grand National at Aintree on Saturday.

Gordon Elliott’s little beauty, owned by the Gigginstown stud and ridden quite brilliantly by Davy Russell, won in scintillating style.

The horse has been heavily backed for weeks after superb efforts leading up to this historic attempt – and I do winder now if despite denials, Tiger Roll might go for an unprecedented treble of National wins next year.

You could say I’ve been mauled by a Tiger, but sometimes when you witness history you just have to pay out with a smile.

Finally, we not only learnt at the weekend who next month’s FA cup final would be between, but also that Everton are quite capable on their day of upsetting the so-called big boys when they beat top-four chasing Arsenal at Goodison.

City are big favourites at 1/6 at Betfred to win the FA Cup with Watford 4/1 … but always remember, anything can happen in a one-off game.
