Do The Double

Wayne Bailey

SOCCER

IT'S a little hard to get excited about today's Premier League encounter between Stoke and Aston Villa.

Both sides have failed to score in their latest two matches and, on average, have scored just one goal per game this season.

Although short in the betting at 8/13, the 'under 2.5 goals' option should be a safe enough wager this afternoon.

RACING

BASED on his turf form, Tales Of Grimm (7/2) is likely to prove popular in the betting for the Listed Quebec Stakes (2.35) at Lingfield.

However, I wasn't overawed by his all-weather debut in a similar race at this course recently, so preference is for Galician, which is generally available at 6/1.

Mark Johnston's tough little filly is adept on the artificial surfaces and is sure to appreciate the step back up in distance.
