DO THE DOUBLE

Wayne Bailey

Soccer:

Following a humiliating 4-0 defeat at the hands of Blackpool, the last thing Wigan need is the Premier League champions showing up at the DW Stadium, but that's exactly what they face this evening. If you shop around, you can get 4/5 on the Chelsea half-time/full-time result, which looks the football bet of the weekend.

Horse Racing:

Gordon Elliott certainly knows how to raid the prize money at Perth and boasts 17 winners from 54 races (31pc) at the Scottish venue in 2010. Had you stuck a tenner on each, you'd show a profit of €137 and the seven-year-old Shopfrontspecialst can add to that winning tally. The gelding continues to go up in the ratings, but the top-weight burden of 11st 13lb may not be enough to hold back this course-and-distance winner in the Perth Bookmakers Handicap Hurdle (5.45), priced around 4/6.
