Do the double

Soccer

Lars Lagerback (right) came in to manage Norway in February and their opponents tomorrow, Northern Ireland, will have plenty of respect for the man that led Iceland to their famous Euro 2016 victory over England. But Norway are still lacking in many areas, picking up just three points in Group C so far. A trip to Belfast will be tough, and odds of 13/10 about a home win are generous.

RACING

Trained by Willie Mullins, Great Field is expected to go off around 13/8 in the Listed Pierce Molony Memorial Novice Chase at Thurles (3.55) and I reckon that price is a couple of ticks too high based on his recent win at Leopardstown. He beat Jessica Harrington's useful Don't Touch It on that occasion and had plenty in hand despite a mistake at the last where the jockey lost his irons. He's one to keep onside for now, although Diamond King will be a danger.
