Do the double

SOCCER

Tottenham's win over Man City a couple of weeks ago forced bookmakers into action and they cut Mauricio Pochettino (right) and his men from 16/1 into 8/1 to win the League. Spurs will be keen to keep the momentum going today with a win over a West Brom side which sit mid-table having won just twice in seven matches this term. At 8/11, Spurs are a confident bet.

Racing

Third in the Arc a couple of weeks ago, Order Of St George should take all the beating stepping down in class for the Group Two Long Distance Cup at Ascot (1.25). Trained by Aidan O'Brien, the Galileo colt will appreciate the step back up in trip and his defeat to Wicklow Brave at the Curragh at 1/7 is forgiven as Frankie Dettori nicked the race from Ryan Moore with an astute tactical front-running ride.
