Morphettville Race 1 – G.H. Mumm (Bm80) – 2014m
#7 Laundy – $4
Comes out two pretty handy form races this prep. Last start, sat on a hot speed and finished just off the heels of the placegetters, who have run well since. Gets Oliver and from the good gate will roll forward and make its own luck. I recommend you use Ladbrokes’ SWITCH product, if you can, and double your winning or bonus back for 2nd and 3rd.
Morphettville Race 4 – G3 Proud Miss Stakes – 1200m
#4 Brooklyn Hustle – $3.30
Tough horse to catch having won only twice in 14 career starts but looks extremely well suited here at the weights, and gets the world’s best jockey in Jamie Kah on. Gets a 3kg weight swing on Rubisaki from last start and ran the fastest last furlong in that race. Should be favourite.
Morphettville Race 8 – G1 Goodwood – 1200m
#2 Gytrash – $3.30
The class horse of the field. Narrowly beaten in this race last year and can go one better this time around. First up, but flies fresh and beat Nature Strip easily first up last campaign. Should get a lovely run from the gate and well suited by the set weights and penalties conditions. Clearly the one to beat and should be a clear favourite.
Doomben Race 7 – G1 Doomben 10,000 – 1200m
#1 Trekking – $7.50/$2.25
I’m willing to forgive last start, looked the winner there when it hit the front at the furlong but stopped like it was shot. Wouldn’t be the first horse to race flat at Eagle Farm before crossing the road and jumping out if its skin at Doomben. The gate is tricky but we get a price to compensate, looks the one over the odds.
Canterbury Bulldogs ($5.50) VS Canberra Raiders ($1.14) – Suncorp Stadium
Two teams who are really struggling. The Raiders have struggled for points so far this season and everyone is aware of the Bulldogs lack of attack. More than happy to dive into the unders.
Suggested Bet – Total match points under 42.5 @ $1.90
Gold Coast Titans ($7.25) VS Penrith Panthers ($1.09) – Suncorp Stadium
This should be a very fast game of footy with plenty of end to end action and repeat sets. The Titans will be without the beast that is David Fifita and Penrith are, well, Penrith…The fast ruck should see plenty of points and has the potential to see Penrith concede more points than usual, and if they don’t, they can score more than 40 on their own.
Suggested bet – Total match points over 42.5 @ $1.90
St Kilda ($3.20) VS Geelong Cats ($1.35) – Marvel Stadium
The Cats look to have found their feet after exacting some revenge when smashing Richmond last round. The Saints have been somewhat inconsistent this season with 4 wins and 4 losses after 8 rounds. The Cats can go on with it here.
Suggested Bet – Geelong Cats -18.5 @ $2
Sydney Swans ($1.30) VS Collingwood ($3.50) – SCG
Collingwood will be without Jordan Roughead and Nathan Murphy who will both miss this clash due to the AFL’s 12 day concussion protocols. On top of that Jeremy Howe has been ruled out indefinitely after requiring surgery on a hamstring. The Swans very nearly beat the benchmark team in Melbourne last round, and at home, they can sink the boot into the Pies….and who doesn’t love seeing that!
Suggested Bet – Sydney Swans -21.5 @ $1.90
