Manchester United were beaten by Fenerbahce in the Europa League on Thursday and their chances of winning the Premier League look remote, with bookmakers offering odds of 28/1. But they can at least get back to winning ways at 8/11 tomorrow afternoon against Bob Bradley's Swansea, who are 6/4 for relegation.


Trained by Dan Skelton (pictured), Virgilio is tipped around 3/1 in the four-runner Grade Two Wincanton Rising Stars Novices' Chase (1.35). A smart hurdler, the seven-year-old got off to the best possible start over fences when winning a novice chase at Warwick, and followed up with a striking win in a small field chase at Newton Abbot last month - although he was getting weight that day. He looks quite special.
