Do the double

Horse racing

The 2010 Doncaster St Leger winner Arctic Cosmos should have too much class for his rivals in the Magnolia Stakes at Kempton (2.20).

Unfortunately, he fractured a canon bone at home following that race, so he only ran twice last season, performing reasonably well on both occasions. He's fit and well again and with 9lb in hand on official ratings, he'll take all the beating today priced around 8/11.

Soccer

Manchester City have won their last 20 Premier League home games in-a-row and, with Manchester Untied not in action until Monday, a chance is offered to reduce the three-point deficit. Take the Blues to land the half-time/full-time result against Sunderland today, for which Paddy Power offer the best price of 4/6.
