Do The Double

Wayne Bailey


IT has been three years since Bear Behind last tasted victory, so trainer Tom Dascombe has taken the bull by the horns and dropped the useful handicapper right down in class to contest the Thirsk Racecourse & Conference Centre Selling Stakes (6.10).

On official figures, he's 22lbs superior to nearest rival Cape of Hope and at 5/4, this looks a straightforward penalty kick.


BETTING on football can be a tricky business at this time of the year and Norwich, who have been effectively relegated, welcome Arsenal to Carrow Road in a largely meaningless fixture tomorrow afternoon.

While some have suggested that the Canaries will want to exit the Premier League with a bang, Arsenal should still have too much firepower at 10/11, despite the fact they'll have one eye on next week's FA Cup final.
