Do the double


The history books show that Ireland have a poor record away in Austria and bookmakers have chalked the home side up as even-money favourites as they welcome Martin O'Neill and his men to Vienna. But a poor start to the campaign has left Austria desperate for points and with injuries on both sides, Ireland might nab a draw this evening around 5/2.


I'm a big fan of Grendisar which is on a hat-trick of wins heading into today's Listed Churchill Stakes (2.0 Lingfield) - but that's reflected in his price and early odds of 7/4 are skinny. Instead, a chance is taken on Yorker, which is expected to go off around 4/1. Trained by Willie Haggas (left), it's his first time racing on the all-weather but he's a Group One winner at Turffontein and this is a significant step down in class.
