DO THE DOUBLE

It's not really a question of whether Declan Kidney's Ireland will beat Scotland in the Six Nations; it's more a case of trying to figure out how much they will win by. I'm expecting a decisive victory this afternoon at Croker and the boys in green are taken to overcome the minus 14-point handicap at even money (Boylesports, Victor Chandler).
If last season's nursery form is anything to go by, Deauville Post should easily dispose of his four rivals in the Lingfield Park Sportingbet Supports Heros Maiden Stakes (5.20). There's a slight worry in that he's never raced on an artificial surface, but he should have enough in the tank to overcome any possible dislike of the Polytrack. The step-up in trip should suit.
