Do the double - Back Manchester United and Diakali to claim victories

Wayne Bailey


ARSENAL have made a stunning start to the season and now sit happily at the top of the table with a five-point lead. But an away trip to Manchester United is always a tough day's work for any side and the Gunners haven't tasted victory at Old Trafford since 2006. Back United to give their home fans something to smile about at 13/10.


THE Willie Mullins-trained Diakali won the Grade One four-year-old hurdle at Punchestown in April and continued to impress when taking the Prix Alain Du Breil Hurdle at Auteuil last time out under Ruby Walsh. Expect more success for the partnership today at 8/15 in the Grade Three Fishery Lane Hurdle at Naas (12.50).

* Last week's double was successful at an overall price of 10/1.
