Betting: Do The Double

SPURS may have won five of their last away games in all competitions but Tim Sherwood's (right) troops have a tough task this evening as they make the short trip to Arsenal for an FA Cup north London derby.

The last seven meetings of the pair have produced three wins apiece and one draw and while it's a tough one to call, a chance is taken on another draw at 11/4 in what promises to be one of the most entertaining matches of the weekend's cup clashes.

RACING

THE Chris Grant-trained Lysino has made a good impression in some handicaps recently and looks a little overpriced at 4/1 for the St James Place Handicap Hurdle at Newcastle (2.15).

He was travelling best of the lot in a novice handicap hurdle here before Christmas and jockey Wilson Renwick hadn't yet asked for a full effort when he blundered two out. His mark has been raised from 98 to 102 but I've a feeling he's not yet fully exposed and provided he keeps out of trouble, he can land his first win over jumps today.
