Do the double

Wayne Bailey


Surely Manchester United shouldn't be odds-against to beat local rivals City in the FA Cup this afternoon?

Wayne Rooney will be missing -- but so too will Carlos Tevez and with United back in form, it's hard to see any other result but a win for the Red Devils. The Blues are looking for their first piece of silverware in 35 years but defeats to Liverpool and Chelsea suggest that they've still some way to go before they can call themselves a top club, and the 11/10 on offer for United to win is just too good to miss.


The John Gosden yard are not expecting to come home empty-handed from Haydock this evening and their banker of the day is Rainbow Springs, which is priced around 1/2 for the Watch Racing UK On Sky 432 Maiden Fillies' Stakes (7.05 Haydock).

The three-year-old was third in a Group One race at Longchamp back in October and unless there's a hidden ace in the field, this filly will take all the beating.
