Good luck and good punting!
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!
Money lost, nothing lost. Confidence lost, everything lost.
