The Professor is wary of the weather conditions for today’s Flemington race meeting. The track is currently rated a Good 4 but rain is expected during the day and that could affect the chances of some horses. The rail is in the true position for the entire circuit.
Don’t forget to back the tips each way!
Race 7 Horse 2 – Nature Strip (for the ladies at the Tennis club)
Race 8 Horse 9 – Katalin (also for the ladies at the Tennis club)
Race 7 Horse 2 – Nature Strip into Liverpool to beat Norwich City (Premier League) into Melbourne United to beat South East Melbourne Phoenix (NBL).
You can hear the Professor discuss today’s race results with the Sportzfan Radio panel including the Gelding, the Judge, the Saint and Coutta tomorrow from midday on 88.3 Southern FM, the Sounds of the Bayside.
Good luck and good punting!
It was disappointing to see Atlantic Jewel is out of the Cox Plate as she was the clear favourite and it would have been great to see her win the race. It is now a lot more open with Itsadundeel likely to start the favourite, but having missed a run with a foot abscess, I think he is vulnerable. I am going to get in before the Gelding and tip (Mark) Fiorente to keep it in the Sportzfan family!
Also disappointing to see the Gunners concede a late goal against Borussia Dortmund and not escape with a draw. Arsenal has had a great run since their opening loss of the Premier League season against Aston Villa. The Champions League group stage has got a bit to play out so all is not lost.
I did finally get a look at Jack Wilshere’s goal scored against Norwich City. What an absolute cracker and an early nominee for the Goal of the Season!! In the newspaper article they suggested that it was a goal that had Arsene Wenger written all over it and I would agree it is the type of slick football that is the trademark of his teams. Perhaps a bit more focus on defence will take them further in all competitions though.
