Do the double

SOCCER

I quite fancy Dublin to beat Kerry in the All-Ireland semi-final tomorrow, but I'm not willing to take 4/9 betting against a Kingdom side out for revenge. Instead, a chance is taken on Arsenal to beat Watford in the Premier League at 8/11. The Hornets have won only one of their last seven matches.

Racing

Trained by William Haggas (left), Muthmir is a worthy favourite around 5/2 in the Listed Beverley Bullet Sprint Stakes (3.10). Third behind Goldream in the Prix De L'Abbaye, he was disappointing when trying to win the King George Stakes for the second time at Goodwood recently but we should see an improvement now stepping back down to this level. He's officially the best horse in the race.
