Do the double


Southampton have certainly come a long way in a few years and earned another famous victory earlier this month against Inter Milan in the Europa League. Claude Puel and his men have a great record at home recently but I fear they'll struggle against an in-form Liverpool side which are now 11/4 to win the League. Back the Reds today at 5/4.


Trained by Alan King (left), Yanworth only gets a 4lb half-penalty for his win in a novice hurdle and I reckon he'll prove very hard to beat in the Coral Hurdle at Ascot (2.40). He faces some decent sorts like Zarkandar in the five-runner field but he had a cracking season last term and his trainer has said that he's actually a little stronger on his return. Even-money at the time of writing, I expect he'll be returned odds-on.
