If the track gets no rain before they race tomorrow we can punt with a degree of confidence.
Race 4 n 5 Hidden Wonder e/w The pro punters stepped into this one early and it is now a $4.0 fav. Backed e/w it is a bet to nothing. Third up from spell and barrier 2 will see it get the suck run. “Thriving” I’m told!
Race 5 n2 Brasileira Topical tip. Second up and they tell me Snowden has this cherry ripe. Pros believe it to be the bet of the program on ratings.
Race 6 n 10 Huckelberry Friend e/w Word is that this neddy is improving on the track after it’s last start win, so the other should watch out!
“90 minutes, 90 emotions” – A –League advertising campaign.
So imagine what a week in football does to a supporter!
And what a week it was in Australian football. The debacle in Durban, the media circus and fallout that followed, a(nother) controversial sending off and finally, some redemption in Rustenburg.
The Socceroos’ World Cup campaign hangs by a thread but Australia’s draw with Ghana was a sharp reminder of what is possible in a green and gold shirt.
Pim Verbeek’s tactics against Germany were negative and nonsensical. Further, the Socceroos appeared devoid of pace, creativity and passion. The performance against Ghana however, was a drastic improvement and the 10 men who remained on the field at Royal Bafokeng can hold their heads high. Continue reading →
Going back a couple of years, I was asked by the Professor if I would be interested in providing race selections for Sydney racing. It seemed my reputation as a punt drunk was known by more than my wife and a few mates. The Professor thought it would be good to have an addition to the tipster ranks (note I didn’t use the word rivalry). I accepted the offer but on 1 proviso, the tips I would be giving are a compilation of mail I gather from those who either punt for a living or sell information/ratings/track work etc for a living. You see, the truth of the matter is, even in a life and death situation, I am incapable of backing a winner of my own picking. Like those who ring me on a Saturday or those who may glance at the Sydney Colt’s posts on this site, I punt on the information and expertise of others. Continue reading →
21 June 2010 159.2 – Fiorenti continues discussing the fortunes of the Socceroos and gives his opinion on some underachieving countries at the World Cup, Paul Dalligan highlights the AFL leading the NRL 2 to 1 in the racism stakes, is disappointed at the state of NSW rugby and believes the Cockroaches will make changes and go for youth in State of Origin 3. He also suggests the Professor’s Canterbury Bulldogs have picked up a likely player in Trent Hodkinson (now with Manly) who kicked two field goals late in the game to help Manly down the Rabbitohs. The Panel looks at the AFL’s suggestion of the 2012 18 team league being broken up into Conferences and Sean wonders whether that may prevent Collingwood from ever playing Carlton in a Grand Final again.
21 June 2010 159.1 – Stan, the world’s oldest radio apprentice gives the AFL a rest in his rant this week and has the FFA fair and square in his sights at the thought of paying our next soccer coach up to $6 million. Dan Butterly talks US sport particularly the musical chairs of NCAA conference realignment, NBA Championship game 7 and whether Kobe Bryant would have been the MVP of the finals series even if the Celtics had won, whether Tiger Woods can win the US Open from 4 shots back and his thought that the World Cup will end in a draw. The Gelding calls in from the track at Bendigo where he has a runner, Queen Asa, going around. He had a great day at the races on Saturday tipping 3 winners and a second. In the ‘F’ word Mark Fiorenti muses on the problems of parking the “bus” with flat tyres and Sean informs listeners that parking the ‘bus’ is a real soccer tactic.
I have sore fingers from ringing around the traps this morning but alas there is virtually NO strong leads whatsoever. Hence the suggestions below are purely for the punt drunks!
Race 4 n11 Forward Love e/w ($6) The only mail I have is this neddy has been working well and is on a quick backup.
Race 7 n 6 Eripsni ($14) and n 7 Handsupfordetroit ($10). The only whisper I could come up with was a pro punter is backing both of these with Sportsbet.com.au where he will take best of the 3 totes or SP which ever pays higher. I will have a penny on these. If you bet on a 1 state TAB you have no respect for money!
