HORSES

Randwick Race 6 – G1 Inglis Sires’ – 1400m
#1 Anamoe – $2.05
Huge in the Blue Diamond and in the Slipper, simply the one to beat. Will race much handier to the speed as there looks little to no early pressure, will be too strong late. Use your ODDS BOOST if you can and get some extra mayo.

Randiwck Race 7 – G1 Australian Derby – 2400m
#16 Montefilia – $3.5

Tipping the lone filly amongst the boys. This has been the target race and she has progressed beautifully thus far. Should get the run of the race and be very hard to beat.

Randwick Race 8 – G1 T J Smith Stakes – 1200m
#2 Nature Strip – $3.70

Defending champion looking to go back to back. At peak fitness now in its grand final and if he held on to win last start, he goes around much shorter. The one to beat.

Randwick Race 9 – G1 Doncaster Mile – 1600m
#10 Cascadian – #16/$4.80
Absolutely motored home out wide in a slowly run race last start and gets in pretty well at the weights, has the right formlines. J Kah gets her chance at winning her first Group 1 in Sydney.

NRL

Thursday 

South Sydney Rabbitohs ($1.07) VS Brisbane Broncos ($8.50) – Stadium Australia

Souths have the luxury of replacing the suspended Cody Walker with veteran Benji Marshall. The Broncos right edge defence in Nui, Riki and whatever half they decide, is awful. Souths will have a field day attacking left. 

Suggested Bet – South Sydney Rabbitohs -20.5 @ $2
 
Saturday

Sydney Roosters ($1.36) VS Cronulla Sharks ($3.10) – SCG

This shapes as a real breakout game for young half Sam Walker, expect him to have a hand in everything the roosters do in attack. 

Suggested bet – Sydney Roosters -7.5 @ $1.90

AFL

Saturday

Collingwood ($1.22) VS GWS Giants ($4.25)  – MCG

The Giants look likely to go another round without a win. The Pies by plenty.

Suggested bet – Collingwood -25.5 @ $1.90
 
Sunday

Melbourne ($2.05) VS Geelong Cats ($1.78) – MCG

The Cats survived a late comeback by fierce rivals the Hawks last week, whilst Melbourne belted an ordinary Giants outfit. Geelong can go on with it here.

Suggested bet – Geelong Cats -3.5 @ $1.90

GOLF

US Masters – Beautiful Augusta kicks off the first major of the year when hosting the highly anticipated, The Masters. This is a tournament that generally sees one of the better and more fancied players win, roughies and longshots have a pretty poor record. Let’s have a wild swing and see if we can hit a target.

Justin Thomas –  $11 – Tied 4th here in November and won The Players last year, meets all the criteria necessary to perform well and at double figures.

Brooks Koepka – $26 – Loves the limelight of the majors and usually performs well. Recent form, when winning the Phoenix Open and a Tied 2nd placing in the WGC-Mexico Championship, suggest he is back near his best golf after recent knee surgery. The solid unit looks over the odds.
