Do the double


It's still early days, but Fernando Torres' move to Chelsea hasn't set the world alight and it was pretty mediocre stuff from the Blues against Fulham on Valentine's Day, when they were lucky to get the 0-0 draw. They're at home to Everton today in the FA Cup but the 1/2 on offer from some layers is pretty shabby considering the fact that there have been 10 draws in the last 20 meetings of the pair. Take Everton to land the double chance bet (win or draw) at 6/4.


The Nicky Henderson-trained Sprinter Sacre deserves to be odds on for the Trisoft National Hunt Novices' Hurdle at Ascot (4.05). This is very much a prep race for the Supreme Novices' and the five-year-old should have no problem overcoming a penalty to land the prize money, priced around 4/7.
