I don't claim to be the greatest paddock reader in the world but the Barry Hills-trained Failasoof looked fantastic before his racecourse debut at Kempton last October, and his name was duly jotted down in my notebook when coming home third at 40/1. The yard are expecting him to come on for the run and he should have too much for his rivals in today's Forest Row Maiden Stakes at Lingfield (4.40), priced around even-money.

Soccer:

Not so long ago, Arsenal were out to 12/1 to win the Premier League, but after a dramatic few weeks the best you can get right now is 21/10 with Boylesports. Every game is crucial and today's trip to West Brom is no different. While the Baggies still aren't certain to avoid relegation, Arsenal have more to play for and I'm expecting a return to form this afternoon. Take the Gunners to get back to winning ways at 4/5 with Victor Chandler.
