HORSES 

Randwick Race 4 – G3 JRA Plate – 2000m
#1 Zaaki – $2.35

I have to be honest, I know absolutely nothing about his overseas form but his run last start in the Doncaster was super. J Mac takes the ride, can race much handier from the gate and up in trip looks to suit. Use your ODDS BOOST, if you can. 

Randwick Race 5 – G3 Hall Mark Stakes – 1200m
#3 Deprive – $11
#7 Ranier – $16

Deprive hasn’t won for a while but the last two runs this prep have been solid, has found the line well and had no luck last start, sure to race well. Ranier is first up after a quiet trial and I love the booking of Bowman. Has good form in previous campaigns to give this a shake, over the odds.  

Randwick Race 6 – G1 Champagne Stakes – 1600m
#2 Hilal – $3.40

This colt looks to be the one who has been set for this race. Has gotten back in its races and found the line well, the mile should suit and can race handier from the alley over this trip. The one to beat. 

Randwick Race 7 – G1 All Aged Stakes – 1400m 
#1 Kolding – $11
#10 Savatiano – $7

Kolding and Savatiano come through similar form lines, as does race favourite Masked Crusader. Kolding was trapped wide last start and willing to forgive, form has been super out of the race since. Savatiano has beaten both Kolding and Masked Crusader in the lead up to this and Bowman sticks. Masked Crusader maps back and wide whilst Kolding and Savatiano should get great runs just behind the speed. 

NRL

Thursday

Penrith Panthers ($1.13) VS Newcastle Knights ($6.20) – BlueBet Stadium

Penrith survived a scare from the Brisbane Broncos last week with a 43m field goal in the 74th minute and a try from Nathan Cleary getting them home. The Knights will need to go to a level they haven’t reached in a while to be competitive. 

Suggested Bet – Penrith Panthers -17.5 @ $2

Friday 

Parramatta Eels ($1.22) VS Brisbane Broncos ($4.25) – TIO Stadium, Darwin

This will be a much better game than people expect, should be a tough physical game that will be won in the middle third. Some concerns whether Brisbane can replicate last week’s performance but I am backing they can, a Broncos win here would not surprise.  

Suggested Bet – Brisbane Broncos +12 @ $2

AFL

Saturday

Gold Coast Suns ($2.30) VS Sydney Swans ($1.62) – Metricon Stadium

Both teams have considerable injury concerns but the Swans will struggle most with their injury toll starting to mount, No Buddy Franklin has affected the betting. At home, the Suns should be confident of causing an upset.  

Suggested Bet – Gold Coast Suns @ $2.30

Fremantle ($1.08) VS North Melbourne ($7.75) – Optus Stadium

Fremantle’s key forward Matt Taberner kicked four goals against the Crows last week and up against a North Melbourne side who has leaked goals all season, he looks a good chance to bag 4 or more goals. Can improve on his season average of 2.6 goals. 

Suggested bet – Player Goals – To Kick 4+ Goals – Matthew Taberner @ $2.40
