Southampton could have to travel to Manchester City in the quarter-finals – if the runaway Premier League leaders avoid an upset against Wigan on Monday.

The winner of the replay between Sheffield Wednesday and Swansea plays the victor from the clash between Rochdale and Spurs.

Rochdale host Tottenham Hotspur at 4 today.


Gordon Elliott and Willie Mullins go head-to-head in the two feature races at Navan today.

Elliott is responsible for three of the five runners in the Grade 2 Ten Up Novice Chase (4.00), including recent Thyestes Chase winner Monbeg Notorious who will be ridden by Jack Kennedy. His other two runners are Jury Duty and Mossback. Willie Mullins relies upon C’Est Jersey.

The other Grade 2 race on the card in the Ladbrokes Ireland Boyne Hurdle (2.20) which sees the Mullins-trained Bapaume tackle Diamond Cauchois from the Elliott stable.

The first of seven races at Navan is due off at 1.50 and the going is heavy, soft to heavy in places.
