DO THE DOUBLE

Gaelic football:

Expect this year's Donegal v Derry Ulster final to be a close affair. Donegal's style of play may not be the prettiest to watch, but they've been grinding out the results and showed plenty of guts when beating Tyrone by a goal, despite being five points down at one stage. You can never dismiss Derry lightly, but they've a lot of injuries, making the 4/6 about a Donegal win seem a little overpriced.

Horse racing:

It will be interesting to see how the four unraced colts fare out in the Lettergold Maiden Stakes (2.0 Newmarket) and there's always a chance that there's a hidden gem lurking in the field. However, Diamondhead ran a good one on his debut at Salisbury and looks open to improvement. A price of even-money or thereabouts would be fair value.

* Last week's double was successful on both legs at an overall price of 5/2.
