Do the double

Rugby

Some of the Irish players make a quick return to action this weekend in the Heineken Cup and a straight-forward win bet on Leinster to beat Montpellier looks the way to go.

Despite the loss of Brian O'Driscoll, Leinster are superior in all areas and that's reflected in the odds of 4/7. Montpellier sit in 12th spot in the French League and it will be a big surprise if Leinster don't make the trip worthwhile.

Horse racing

Frog Hollow looks a good deal overpriced at 3/1 in the EBF Jeremy Chapman Still Swinging At 70 Novice Stakes (1.40 Lingfield).

The son of Intikhab beat Lord Ofthe Shadows in a Novice Stakes at Salisbury last time and that horse franked the form when winning recently at Newmarket. Frog Hollow should manage to finish ahead of promising pair Gloriam and Asatir.

•Last week's double was successful on both legs at an overall price of 3/2.
