It's one tip from Nottingham and one from Newmarket for today's daily double, which comes to just over 8/1 on the Betfair Sportsbook...

Taraashoq for Haggas
14:45 Nottingham - Taraashoq
Taraashoq is an interesting runner in this Novice Stakes.
This gelding put in a much improved effort when finishing fifth to stablemate Baaeed in a maiden at Leicester earlier this month. He kept on well in the closing stages under mild urging. The winner bolted up in a similar event on Saturday, and is potentially a Group horse.
The form looks solid and should move forward. Trainer Willie Haggas is in sparking form which is an added bonus. He is currently trading at 3.0 on the Sportsbook.
Malathaat to come good
15:35 Newmarket - Malathaat
The beautifully bred Malathaat is my idea of the winner of this Novice Stakes.
This half-sister to the smart Broome finished second to Air To Air in a similar event on the Rowley Mile last month. She met a fair bit of interference, and would have finished closer with a clear run.
The winner has since won, and was not disgraced in the Britannia at Royal Ascot last week. Although it is early days, a win would greatly enhance her paddock value. I think she is sitting on a big effort and is fairly priced at 3.75 on the Sportsbook
