Do the double

SOCCER

Paul Scholes (pictured) reckons Manchester United can get back in the title race if they beat Liverpool tomorrow, and while that seems far-fetched, the Red Devils are on a terrific run of form - they haven't lost a league game since October. Liverpool were poor at Southampton on Wednesday and United are tipped to get one over their bitter rivals at 6/5.

RACING

Trained by Mark Prescott, Boost hasn't raced since June but on what we've seen so far, she's got more than enough talent to land the 32Red.com Maiden Stakes at Wolverhampton this evening (8.15), priced around evens. She was a little green in her two races to date but has plenty of potential and it won't be long before we see her in the winners' enclosure. James Given's Alfonso Manana can follow her home.
