A man’s car stalls on a country road. When he gets out to fix it, a horse in the nearby field comes up alongside the fence and leans over by him. “Your trouble is probably in the fuel injection system,” says the horse.
Startled, the man jumps back and runs down the road until he meets a farmer. He tells the farmer his story. “Was it a large white horse with a black mark over the right eye?” asks the farmer. “Yes! Yes!” the man replies. “Oh, I wouldn’t listen to her,” says the farmer, “she doesn’t know anything about cars.”

BEST BETS – A-LEAGUE
Sydney will welcome Perth tonight, and with one win from their last seven matches, the Glory are now in danger of falling out of the top four as the finals approach. Sydney looked a bit shaky last week, but shouldn’t have any issues getting things back on track and the handy odds of $2.10 and that represents phenomenal value for a side that seems destined for silverware in the next few weeks.
And on Sunday Adelaide has invited Newcastle over. The Jets have been improving the last few rounds, while Adelaide have been a slippery slope of losses with a spot in the Finals looking to be a tall order. The Jets beat Perth last week, and with Adelaide s defence leaking goals, Newcastle at $2.80 gets our nod.
BEST BETS – HORSES
Caulfield gets the attention this week with the All-Star Mile the feature, and we are giving the nod to No.7 Alligator Blood. Taking all that is being thrown at him with ease, this will be another box ticked on an impressive resume. Get on at $2.80. Our value bet of the day is R3, No. 1 Destination. Coming into this fit as a fiddle third-up and should get a sweet sit. And paying $16 makes it all the more appealing.
