No AFL tips with a week off before Finals. That will give Geelong fans enough to time to prepare for the Cats going out in straight sets after just making the Top-4. Just saying…..
Are we ready for some cricket!!!
Vale Dean Jones. On a personal note, his Test HS of 216 batting at 4 at Adelaide Oval in 1989 against a Windies side that featured Ambrose, Patterson, Marshall and Walsh was yours truly’s first taste of live Test cricket at age 9. And Merv scored 72 no. Perfect.
The Punt Club Crew
The Punters Club Cup is motoring along with plenty of big ROI’s popping up on a weekly basis. But there is still time to get involved with your punting crew and jag a few bets to try and score your share of the swag of prizes on offer.
THE PUNTERS CLUB CUP FLYING ALONG
The current leading club is The 3 Musketeers and Butler with a ladder leading ROI of 2,119%. Sounds like once the comp is done these guys should start a folk band and tour the country with a 1970’s caravan in tow. Do you need someone to play cowbell?!?!
BEST CLUB PERFORMANCE
Euros was the best performed Club last week with a sensational ROI of 1,963% and each member of the club scores a $50 Bonus bet. And that’s all I have to say about that.
BEST INDIVIDUAL PERFORMANCE
Justin G of FLASH SYNDICATE scored the $100 Bonus Bet this week with a ridiculous ROI of 2,118%. Lets hope he put on a personal side bet. That way he can retire and have enough splash to not work until 2118!
BEST BETS – NRL
South Sydney meet crosstown rivals Sydney tonight with the Roosters having won each of their last 5 games by double digits. The Rabbitohs were ordinary last week and given the Roosters have a Top 4 spot on the line and have some big inclusions, we will be on Sydney by 13+ at $2.02.
And on Saturday night Penrith will meet Canterbury who are trying to avoid the wooden spoon. The Panthers have the Minor Premiership wrapped up and are looking for 15 wins in a row, and while they should be too much for the Doggies, we reckon it will be closer than expected as Canterbury were handy last week. Penrith by 1-12 at $3.00.
BEST BETS – HORSES
The Caulfield card for this weeks tips with The Underwood Stakes over 1800m the feature and while No.10 Russian Camelot is the clear fav, we will be on No.9 Arcadia Queen. She has won 6 from 11 and she looks ready to win given this is her 3rd up run this prep. Get involved at $4.80.
Our value bet of the day is R6, No.3 Crosshaven. This is a step up in class and he was impressive last start at Flemington. Will be hard fit for this and he just always tries hard so we like the $8.50 on offer at the moment.
And a quick trip to Sydney for the G1 Golden Rose where we like No.1 Rothfire. Touched up Farnan last start and has won 7 from 8 starts. Class unit of the field and should be another win on the way to The Everest. Paying $1.9o at the time we pressed send. AND…… she is the Mirunners Everest slot holder which means she will be running for the winning Club in our King Of Spring promo.
What are the odds! Given there are 12 slots, we say its 12/1.

PS…. Trekking at $9 for the Moir Stakes tonight.
