Do The Double

Wayne Bailey

SOCCER

THE Premier League makes a welcome return this weekend and it's a big day on Merseyside as Everton welcome Liverpool to Goodison Park.

Second-placed Liverpool have done precious wrong this term and are now odds-on for a top-four finish, but the Toffees have been holding their own too, losing just once away, to City. If you ask me, this one has draw written all over it (12/5).

RACING

OF those horses which have a mark, Flashy Queen has a couple of pounds in hand in the 32 Free At 32Red.com/EBF Stallions Maiden Stakes at Lingfield (12.20).

She was a little one-paced when making her handicap debut at Wolverhampton back in September, but she got herself back on track when runner-up in a maiden at Bath last time.

Five-pound claimer George Chaloner is a jockey to keep an eye on and early odds of 2/1 about the filly seem a little high.
