Just the one match on this weekend and I will bank on South Africa proving too good for Sri Lanka.
I have backed Quinton de Kock to be the leading run-scorer for South Africa at $3.80 and Kagiso Rabada at $3.70 to be the leading wicket-taker for South Africa.
By the time this post goes up next week the first match of the AFL will have been played.
I would expect Richmond to come out running and take care of Carlton. I am happy to back Richmond to cover the line and win by 36 points or more at $1.90.
I will likely have a little something on Tom Lynch to be the first goalscorer when those markets open as well.
Game three of the Grand Final series will be played tonight and with home floor advantage the Perth Wildcats will take some stopping. I am happy to back them at the line to win by 4 points or more at $1.90 and take that in some multis this weekend.
This weekend I will opt for a three leg multi which requires Manchester City, Liverpool and West Ham to all win their matches. The multi price is $2.24.
I will have a small multi on the Perth Glory to defeat Adelaide United and the Melbourne Victory to beat Brisbane Roar. The multi price is $3.13.
UFC ON ESPN
I’ll have a three leg multi which needs Dominick Reyes, Nathanial Wood and Darren Till to win their respective bouts. The multi is paying $2.46.
A stellar day of racing at both Flemington and Rosehill with the $5 million All Star Mile the feature event.
My best bets of the weekend are as follows :
Flemington Saturday Race 2 Number 7 Jumbo Ozaki (TABtouch Fixed Odds Price $2.30) : Is unbeaten after 2 lifetime starts and has looked most impressive in both performances. Steps up in class to Saturday grade here but has drawn nicely and only has to carry 54 kilograms. Looks well above average and should bring up the winning hat-trick in this.
Flemington Saturday Race 9 Number 5 Mastering (TABtouch Fixed Odds Price $2.35) : Classy type who has performed well fresh in the past winning 2 of his 3 prior first up runs. Over this distance has had 6 tries for 2 wins and 3 seconds and this looks an ideal assignment. Is likely to take some stopping.
Rosehill Saturday Race 5 Number 11 Very Elleegant (TABtouch Fixed Odds Price $3.20) : Quality filly who has won her only ever second up start in the past and was very good first up when runner up behind the smart Amphitrite. Well drawn in barrier 2 and will appreciate having just 54.5 kilograms on her back. Loves a soft track and likely to have that here.
Rosehill Saturday Race 7 Number 15 El Dorado Dreaming (TABtouch Fixed Odds Price $17) : Consistent filly who has been racing very well in top company of late. Has only won 1 of 11 but placed on another 7 occasions and has been close up behind some very smart types of late. Trainer Kris Lees was on local radio this morning and he gave a very nice push for this girl. Looks a tremendous each way play.
Mandurah Friday Race 10 Number 1 Ouchamp (No Fixed Odds Available) : Handy sprinter who has been racing in top grade for months and should relish the drop back in grade here. Was placed in a much tougher race 2 starts back and that sort of run would see him very hard to beat in this. Other nice bets on the card look to be 6-2 Tornado Alley and 8-1 Frida Monelli.
