NRL GRAND FINAL
Sydney have proven the best team all season long in the NRL and I expect them to prevail in the NRL Grand Final against Canberra.
For an interest on the game I have backed Sydney to cover the line and win by 8 points or more at $1.90 and in Clive Churchill Medal Betting I have backed James Tedesco at $4.50.
The Perth Wildcats kick off their premiership title defence on Saturday afternoon when they host an injury depleted Melbourne United.
I am very confident that the Wildcats will win and win well.
I am happy to back them at the line to win by 4 points or more at $1.86 and have also stepped into them to win by 11 points or more at $3.
I will take a multi which requires Liverpool, Arsenal, Manchester City and West Ham to all win. The multi price is $4.43.
My best bets of the weekend are as follows :
Flemington Saturday Race 4 Number 6 Angelic Ruler (TABtouch Fixed Odds Price $5.00) : Talented WA mare who has had 13 starts for 5 wins and 7 placings. Was an encouraging return first up when she ran home well to finish runner-up in the How Now Stakes over 1200 metres at Caulfield. Damien Oliver jumps on here and she has drawn well in barrier six. Has won both of her second up starts in the past and looks primed to run a cracking race here. Great each way bet.
Randwick Saturday Race 5 Number 2 Classique Legend (TABtouch Fixed Odds Price $2.20) : Excitement machine who resumed from a break with a superb second behind Pierata in the Shorts over 1100 metres. Unbeaten second up and while he runs into some quality opposition here looks to have enough class to prevail. Has the benefit of a run back at the races over most of his key opposition here and I think that is the key to the event.
Randwick Saturday Race 7 Number 9 Kolding (TABtouch Fixed Odds Price $5.50) : Lightly weighted son of Ocean Park who was tremendous in taking out the Bill Richie at his most recent outing over 1400 metres at Randwick. Steps up to the mile here where he has had one try for one win and races well at this track where he has won 2 of 3 attempts. Glen Boss takes the ride at just 50.5 kilograms and that feather weight may well prove the difference late in the home straight. Another great each way play.
Kalgoorlie Saturday Race 3 Number 2 Mervyn (TABtouch Fixed Odds Price $2.50) : Speed Demon who only knows one way – flat stick! I expect Mitch Pateman to shoot this fellow to the top and if anywhere near his best in a field of this quality he should have them gasping for oxygen. Races well at the Goldfields circuit and has been very well supported since fixed odds betting opened firming from $3.50 into $2.50.
Cannington Saturday Race 2 Number 8 Who’s Got Cash (TABtouch Fixed Odds Price Not Available) : Took his game to a new level last week when recording a best of night 29.68 victory. Only has to repeat something close to that to be bolting in again. Other nice bets on the card look to be 5-2 West On Violet each way, 7-1 Snallygaster and 9-1 Hostile Guess.
