DO THE DOUBLE

Racing

Maxentius has been racing in Group One and Two company of late and while he's performed with some credit, he's been a little out of his depth. The drop in class to Group Three should prove interesting today and early odds of 11/4 look tempting, considering the colt has some of the best form on offer in the Horris Hill Stakes (2.15 Newbury).

Soccer

In weeks to come, will we will look back at tomorrow's clash between Chelsea and Manchester United and recognise it as a turning point in the Premier League? United have problems in defence but are still hard to beat even when conceding early -- which makes the win market very difficult to call. Instead, backing both teams to score can pay off, priced around 8/13 (Ladbrokes).
