Do the double

SOCCER

Liverpool are really starting to click under Jurgen Klopp (right) and are now considered serious title contenders by the bookmakers at 3/1. The Reds are level in the table with City and Arsenal, and can claim full points this afternoon around 8/11 against a Crystal Palace side which have lost four of their nine games.

I'm sure Roger Varian was happy with Dealer's Choice at Newcastle recently; the two-year-old filly was sent off at 25/1 in a maiden but ran much better than the market expected and finished a close second to Michael Stoute's odds-on favourite Panova. She's back in action at Chelmsford today in another maiden (6.40) and although there's a couple of unraced horses which could spring a surprise, her price of 13/8 looks fair.
