HORSES

Rosehill Race 7 – LISTED W J Mckell Cup – 2000m
#12 Approach Discreet – $9/$2.80


Slight concern with the month between runs but did race well last start with a 3 week gap between runs. Finished last campaign with a resounding victory over Parry Sound, who is equal favourite in this, and meets it better at the weights. Absolutely motored to the line last start and will be looking to power over them late. Looks to be a great each way bet.

Ipswich Race 5 – TL Cooney – 1350m
#8 Palladas – $3.60


From gate 2 he can settle handier to them today and that would be advantageous to his chances. Chased all the way to the line last start in what looks the best lead up into this. Maloney will need a clear passage at some point in the straight but he has a devastating turn of foot and can put this race away in a few bounds. It might be heart in mouth stuff when he’s angling for a run, but looks hard to hold out if he gets it.

Ipswich Race 7 – LISTED Ipswich Cup – 2150m
#6 Flash Aah – $12/$3.60


Unconventional prep for an Ipswich Cup but everything suggests he will be well suited here from gate 1 over 2150m. He has absolutely powered through the line previously over shorter distances and last start, over 1500m, he chased a hot speed and some handy horses clocking the 2nd fastest last 200m for the race. He was entitled to knock up after sitting on the speed but kept grinding and ran fast overall time. He gets a great run behind the speed, and can stalk the leaders all the way until powering over them late. Looks decent each way bet..

Ipswich Race 8 – LISTED Eye Liner Stakes – 1350m
#2 Amish Boy – $3.70


There looks to be frantic speed in this year’s running of the Eye Liner. The very much in form Craig Williams can settle Amish Boy around midfield and that looks ideal considering the early speed. Last start, he ran very good splits home when chasing a handy field and just missing. A replication of that run sees him right in the mix. He will need an ounce of luck around the tight turning Ipswich circuit but looks the way to attack this race, he’s the horse to beat. 

NRL

Thursday

Brisbane Broncos ($6.20) VS South Sydney Rabbitohs ($1.13) – Suncorp Stadium


The Bunnies look like being at full strength with Cook, Murray, Gagai and Arrow all likely to play. Brisbane on the other hand, well I have nothing nice to say, so I won’t say anything at all. With the Gee man officiating, we can expect a fast pace and the Bunnies left edge attack could have a field day. Bunnies by plenty.

Suggested Bet – South Sydney Rabbitohs -18.5 @ $2

Sunday

Gold Coast Titans ($3.10) VS Manly Sea Eagles ($1.36) – Bankwest Stadium

Manly flogged the Titans earlier in the season and with the return of Turbo, they look very capable of covering the line. They are a solid football team Manly, the win last week further proved that when winning easily without Turbo. The Titans will want to turn up for this otherwise it could get very ugly, very quickly. 

Suggested Bet – Manly -8 @ $1.90

AFL

Friday

Geelong Cats ($1.62) VS Western Bulldogs ($2.30) – GMHBA Stadium


Geelong played last week, when claiming a hard-fought away win against Port Adelaide. The Western Bulldogs come off a bye and face a side who have won 39 of their last 44 matches at this venue. Cats to cover.

Suggested Bet – Geelong Cats -7.5 @ $2
 

Saturday

Gold Coast Suns ($2.80) VS Port Adelaide ($1.44) – Metricon Stadium

Fair to say Port Adelaide enjoy playing the Suns, having won their last 11 matches against them, and covering the line in 7 of the last 8 encounters at Metricon. Both suffered losses last week but Port appears to be the most likely to bounce back. Port to cover the line. 

Suggested Bet – Port Adelaide -14.5 @ $1.90

SPORT

Euro 2021

Still in the group stage of the Football tournament and we are taking a simple head to head multi this weekend with England to beat Scotland, France to beat Hungary, and Spain to beat Poland.

Suggested Bet – England/France/Spain @ $2.33 (use your Odds Boost multi to get that little bit extra juice)

US Open Golf

More sport than you can poke a stick at this weekend. We like to have an interest in the golf majors and we get four days of value to cheer a few wagers on.

Held at the famous Torrey Pines Course in 2021 we think an American can take out the title in Patrick Cantlay at $23.

Our roughie tip is up and coming Scottish Golfer Robert Macintyre who is cracking bet at $1.80 to Make The Cut, also a decent bet on him to finish in the top 20 @ $5.50, and a sneaky hail mary to win it all at $126 e/way.
