Do the double

Soccer

The Red Devils have a fairly easy assignment in the Premier League this afternoon at home to Wigan, although Manchester City should re-inforce their top position with an away win against West Brom. The average number of goals over the past five renewals of this fixture is 3.4, so it may be worth checking out some of the over/under goal markets. Overall, though, a simple win bet on the Citizens looks a safe option at around 4/9.

Horseracing

WE'VE some exciting novices lining up for the Feltham Novices' Chase (2.0 Kempton), but David Pipe's Grands Crus looks the most promising and is taken to land the prize at 6/5. Bobs Worth won't go down easy and is seeking his seventh victory in a row, while Silviniaco Conti is another with a great future ahead. But my own ratings have the selection around 6lbs clear of the field and he should take all the beating this afternoon.
