Do the double

RACING

VICENZO MIO (7/4) can get punters off to a good start in the opening JCB Triumph Hurdle Trial at Cheltenham (12.40). Paul Nicholls' French import won twice over timber for Christian Scandella last year and easily took a juvenile hurdle on his second British start at Kempton over Christmas.

SOCCER

THE English FA Cup often throws up surprises but I highly doubt we'll see any shocks in the first game of the afternoon as Liverpool take on Bournemouth at Dean Court.

The Cherries have drawn four and lost nine of their last 14 games against top-level sides in the Cup and I'm happy to take a chance on StanJames' offer on Liverpool to be leading at half-time, which is available at 9/10 at the time of writing.
