DO THE DOUBLE

Soccer

IT'S a brave man that makes a call on a Manchester United game these days. I got the Liverpool draw correct a couple of weeks ago, but, like most, I was well off the mark last week in the demolition derby against City. The Red Devils are away to Everton today (12.0) and the draw looks the value call at 14/5 (Victor Chandler). The Toffees usually leave it late to score goals in this fixture and were 1-3 down last season before levelling up in injury-time. With United a little rattled, Everton may just manage to hold out for a draw.

Horseracing

Kevin Ryan's two-year-old horses have been doing well of late and at 6/4, Desert Philosopher is worth a punt in the Ladbrokes.com Median Auction Maiden Stakes at Wolverhampton (6.50). The colt hit 1/5 in-running last time at Pontefract, but was eventually outdone by Byronic Hero. He'll come on for the run and should have enough to keep Tiablo at bay today.
