That’s Gold!

HORSES

Moonee Valley Race 1 – Mia Kleer Hand Sanitiser Hcp – 1000m
#1 Jigsaw – $1.85


This looks like a great way to kick start the day. He resumed in fantastic fashion when destroying them and from the good alley he should be able to dictate again. Has some serious upside this colt. (Use your SWITCH and get double the odds OR bonus back for 2nd & 3rd)

Randwick Race 4 – BM78 – 1800m
#3 Badoosh – $4.60/$1.90


Doesn’t win out of turn but gets Hugh “She’s Apples” Bowman and from the good alley he should be afforded a good run in transit. He should be right in the finish in this.

Randwick Race 6 – BM78 – 1500m
#4 Betcha Flying – $5.50/$2.15


Last two have been in Melbourne in better company and with Bowman jumping on from the inside gate there’s a lot to like about her chances in this. 1 from 1 this track and distance and looks a solid each way chance.

Eagle Farm Race 6 – Class 3 – 1800m
#8 Mob Buster – $4/$1.75


He’s been in super form this prep, placing in every start and winning 3 from 5. Had a 6 week break between runs before winning last start so has been freshened up and performed. No reason he can’t run well in this and be very hard to beat.

NRL

Saturday

Newcastle Knights ($2.10) VS Canberra Raiders ($1.72) – Suncorp Stadium

The Raiders showed they are willing to roll up their sleeves and go to battle last week, if they do that again, they will have little trouble overcoming the Knights.  

Suggested bet – Canberra Raiders -3.5 @ $1.90

Sunday 

Cronulla Sharks ($4.60) VS Manly Sea Eagles ($1.19) – Moreton Daily Stadium, Redcliffe

This game heads to the peninsula of Redcliffe. The Sharkies have lost Shaun Johnson and with Manly being at near full strength and firing, this looks a real test for Cronulla. 

Suggested Bet – Manly Sea Eagles -16.5 @ $1.90

AFL

Friday

St Kilda ($1.50) VS Carlton ($2.60) – Marvel Stadium

Both come into this fixture having won 2 from their last 3 but it is St Kilda that have been playing the superior footy after just missing out on 8th place when narrowly beaten by West Coast. It is hard to see Carlton turning their loss to cellar dwellers North Melbourne around in a week.

Suggested Bet – St Kilda -12.5 @ $2

Saturday

North Melbourne ($5.75) VS Geelong Cats ($1.14) – Blundstone Arena, Hobart

Geelong haven’t played in Tassie since 2007 and it is hard to ascertain how it will affect their performance, but what we do know is that the Cats are up and about, looking for 5 consecutive wins. North Melbourne were impressive when beating Carlton but losing Tarryn Thomas (23 disposals and 4 goals last week) will make things a lot tougher and quite possibly all too hard. 

Suggested Bet – Geelong Cats -32.5 @ $1.90 

TOKYO OLYMPICS

Men’s Field Hockey – The Kookaburras have hit the ground running in Tokyo defeating Japan 5-3, India 7-1, Argentina 5-2 and NZ 4-2. They play Spain on Friday before heading into the quarter finals. They have been ultra impressive and are the team to beat.

Suggested Bet – Field Hockey (Men’s) – To Win Gold – Australia @ $2.85

Hope you’re enjoying the Olympics as much as I am and you’re finding a winner or two!
