Do the double

Wayne Bailey


You'd have to feel a bit sorry for poor old Wigan. They were promoted from the Championship in 2005 but it looks like their Premier League adventure is coming to an end and the Latics are now trading at 1/2 in the relegation market.

But that's to be expected when you've conceded 23 goals at home at this stage of the season and Blackburn, who have enjoyed a boost in form of late, can add to Wigan's misery by landing the double chance bet (win or draw), priced around 4/5.

Horse Racing:

Baby Run was a decent chaser in his day and the 11-year-old proved that he still has plenty of life left in him by winning the Foxhunter at Cheltenham in March. He unseated Sam Twiston-Davies when travelling reasonably well at Aintree last time, but he's reported to be fit and well at home and should have enough to take the Wilmot-Smith Memorial Cup, priced around 2/1 (3.50 Wetherby).
