DO THE DOUBLE

Manchester United have practically secured a record 19th Premier League title, but they still require one point just to make it official. They're away to Blackburn this afternoon, but Rovers are also in need of a point which should be enough to secure their place in the top flight next season. A draw would suit both sides and that option seems a little overpriced around 13/5.

Canford Cliffs got the better of Dick Turpin a couple of times last season and can do so again today. He hasn't raced in 10 months, which is of some concern, but the Irish 2,000 Guineas winner is the class act in the field and should still take all the beating at Newbury (3.45) priced around 4/5.
