Do the double

Horse racing: Za'lan caught the eye at Southwell on his debut, finishing second behind odds-on stablemate Three Bards.
While he raced a little green at first, he got into the swing of things a couple of furlongs out and made a surprisingly strong finish. He's up in trip by half a mile this time but he's one that's sure to progress and the opposition in today's Maiden Stakes (1.45 Lingfield) look decidedly poor. Take the gelding to win at 4/9.
With Wolves clocking up 22 Premier League games without a clean sheet, it's hard to see any result other than a win for Newcastle at St James' Park. The Magpies have had a good run of form at home of late and 8/13 looks about right, despite their hammering by Spurs two weeks ago.
