Do the double

Soccer

They say the formbook goes out the window in derby games, but I find it hard to oppose Manchester United as they host City in the Premier League tomorrow.

The Citizens may be top of the table at the moment, but United have won 19 Premier League home matches in a row and have won five of the last six (league) meetings of the pair. Take the Red Devils to win at 11/10.

It's a while since Scamperdale came home in front, but the gelding is worth a punt at around 9/4 in the Eventmasters Hospitality 'Good Luck Silvestre' Claiming Stakes at Wolverhampton (7.20).

The Brian Baugh trained nine-year-old has clocked up 14 wins to date with an impressive eight of those coming on the all-weather at Dunstall Park. He's a good few pounds ahead in the ratings and is the clear form pick.

*Last week's double was successful on both legs at an overall 7/2.
