A nice result last week with Robbie Gray winning the Showdown Medal at $10.
This time around I’ll take a multi with Geelong, Adelaide, Port Adelaide and the Western Bulldogs to all win which is paying $3.09. If you are looking to make it a little more juicy you could add Hawthorn and West Coast which would swell the price to $6.
In First Goal Scorer action I have teamed up with Josh Kennedy at $6.50, Gary Rohan at $10, Tom Lynch at $6.50 and Charlie Dixon at $9.
WORLD CUP CRICKET
Host nation England will play New Zealand in Sunday’s Grand Final after the Black Caps upset India in the first semi and England completely dismantled Australia in the second semi-final overnight.
England are peaking at the right time and are the deserved favourites at $1.30. You can include them in some multis this weekend.
In novelty markets I’ll again stick fat with Kane Williamson to top score for NZ at $2.75 while Jason Roy impressed me greatly overnight and I’ll back him to high score for England at $3.50.
I think Novak Djokovic & Serena Williams will be crowned Wimbledon champions in 2019 – the multi price is $2.53.
I’ll take a multi with my trusty trio of Sydney, Melbourne and South Sydney to all win this weekend. The multi price is $2.80.
Locally a solid program of winter Racing to look forward to at Belmont.
My best bets are :
Caulfield Race 3 Number 15 Cryptic Jewel (TABtouch Fixed Odds Price $4.40) : Resumed with a comfortable 3 1/4 length win over 1200 metres at Geelong and should have taken further improvement out of the run. Is one for one at this track and distance and has the services of Craig Williams which is a big plus. Nice value play.
Caulfield Race 8 Number 13 Soothing (TABtouch Fixed Odds Price $4) : Talented mare who flies fresh having won 3 of 4 first up runs in the past. Draws nicely in barrier 4 and is coming off a solid trial in the build-up to this. Can maintain her excellent first up card in this event.
Belmont Race 3 Number 5 Essential Spice (TABtouch Fixed Odds Price $7) : Quality filly who is bursting to win a race after finishing close up seconds at her last three runs. She has had 8 tries here for a win and 5 seconds and deserves to win one soon – hopefully here! I would advise her as a nice place banker at the very least.
Belmont Race 7 Number 1 Touch Of Silver (TABtouch Fixed Odds Price $7.50) : Striking grey who has won 3 of his last 5 starts. Wasn’t too far away last time out when 4th and is a classy customer at his best. Looks a nice each way bet at good odds.
Mandurah Friday Race 5-4 Cropduster (No Price Available) : Proven city class chaser who is generally a very reliable beginner. With a clean getaway should be too nippy for these. I’m also keen on 8-1 Willie Gundie at nice odds and 9-6 Equity Fund.
