Do the double

Hurling

At 11/4, it's got to be worth taking a chance on Galway to lift the Liam MacCarthy Cup. Kilkenny were not at full strength when they were hammered in the Leinster final, but the Tribesmen won it fair and square and have since taken the scalp of Cork. Don't rule out another historic performance tomorrow afternoon.

Enery is likely to go off as favourite for the Betfred Mobile Casino Handicap (4.45 Kempton), but I reckon an 8lb penalty for his Epsom win last time will be enough to hold him back. lyssio makes more appeal at 6/1 -- he was back to his best when taking a minor event Epsom last time but, at 87, the handicapper has left some room for manoeuvre.
