What a weekend it was for our analysts across the board!

After some frustrating results in recent times for our analysts’ horse racing tips and footy tips, the shackles seemingly flew off and the money piled up on a very successful weekend.

Racing

We start across the ditch again this week where Kiwi Chris enjoyed a ripping Saturday:

  • It was an easy watch for members as Secret Allure ($4.10) beat home Peaceful ($3.30) at Riccarton, giving Chris the Quinella with daylight in third
  • Santa Caterina ($3.10) made it 2/2 for the day at Te Rapa with another strong win
  • Sunday was a little less fruitful, betting into a single race for no return

Trevor Lawson had a quiet weekend in Melbourne, betting into just two races at Flemington on Saturday:

  • Melbourne Ratings members were treated to a winner as Lipstick Lover ($4.60) saluted in race three
  • No such luck in the 6th event as Galaxy Raider ($5.00) went down by a nose in a bobbing finish after a thrilling duel with Another Bullseye all the way down the straight

Bryan Haskins’ recent upswing continued on Saturday at Rosehill and Newcastle:

  • The day started with a close second as Fox Swift ($7.00) went down narrowly in race 2 at Rosehill
  • Members quickly forgot that result as Valree ($5.50) saluted in the 5th event for a nice collect
  • Juventus ($3.40) kept the profits coming with a photo win late in the day at Newcastle
  • Another second to finish with Notting Hill ($2.50) unable to add to the $700 in profit made for the day

Some near misses in South Australia denied Aaron Barby of some big profits as he settled for a break-even day instead:

  • Silent Warrior ($2.60) started the day off with a second-place finish in a disappointing result
  • Some speculative selections for small outlays at big odds failed to fire in races 3 and 5, with Mihany the best of the bunch as he finished third in his event
  • Aaron got the 6th race spot on, picking the Quinella as Sopressa ($6.50) beat home Sheezdashing ($21)
  • Nothing much to report from race 7 with two selections for small outlays failing to feature prominently

Mark enjoyed a rich couple of days in Western Australia:

  • Thursday saw Route Eighty Eight ($3.20) salute at Pinjarra after shortening prior to the jump to start off WA members’ betting week in style
  • It got better on Saturday as Delicate Miss ($6.50) forged a path through the middle to flash home late
  • Some big stakings indicated Mark’s confidence level was high on both selections and that confidence was justified, with the two winners adding up to a whopping $1,230 profit
Cam O’Brien started off well on Thursday before a far more quiet weekend ensued:
  • Two winners from three starters on Thursday as Life Less Ordniary ($1.50) trimmed up dramatically before winning comfortably at Wagga, before War Ksar ($2.80) also saluted at Albany later in the day
  • Selections from Flemington, Rosehill, Ascot and the Gold Coast yielded two winners as Champagne Cuddles ($2.50) proved too good in Queensland before Masquerade ($3.30) provided some relief in the last bet of the day
  • One bet at Northam on Sunday was disappointing with short-priced favourite Miss Meika dropping out in the straight

The Trial Spy came out of the weekend without a scratch after a mixed-bag of results:

  • Lady McCabe ($2.90) got the ball rolling with a win at Ipswich for a winning day on Saturday
  • Sunday brought things back to even for the weekend with Jesmond Girl ($3.30) finishing second at Pakenham

Footy

Thursday night footy kicked things off as per usual in the NRL, with the Broncos edging the Bulldogs courtesy of a contentious late penalty:

  • The late two-pointer didn’t bother Steve Green and his NRL Tips members as their play on the Bulldogs +6.5 saluted
  • Brett’s NRL Specials also enjoyed a perfect start to the weekend with the Dogs covering a +3.5 first half line, while Corey Oates crossed for an early try for members as well

Round 7 of the AFL season commenced on Friday night with Geelong making a mess of the Giants at the Cattery:

  • Daniel and Stephen’s weekend started strongly as Geelong comfortably covered the -17.5 game line for a $300 collect
  • It wasn’t such a good start for Brett’s members with bets on GWS +8.5 at halftime and Stephen Coniglio under 27.5 disposals (finished with 28 for the match) both going down

In the NRL it was the Rabbitohs running rampant over the Knights in a comprehensive 36-18 victory, while North Queensland jumped out of the gates to stun Penrith before holding on for a 26-20 win:

  • Steve Green made it 3/3 for the round with plays on the Bunnies -3.5 and the Cowboys head-to-head at $2 both saluting, with the latter making members sweat after blowing an early 20-0 lead
  • Brett’s team was a little more off the pace with just one play of their four getting over the line (South Sydney -2.5 second half line)

Saturday saw five games on the AFL card, with the Dogs and the Suns kicking things off in Ballarat:

  • The Doggies edged out the Suns late in the contest to cling to a nine-point victory, with the Gold Coast just covering a +14.5 second-half line in the process for AFL Specials members
  • Lachie Hunter stepped up as stand-in Captain and put in a stellar performance, much to the disappointment of members who took the suggested bet of Hunter under 27.5 disposals
  • Hawthorn ran away with the game against Essendon in the second half to run out 23 point winners
  • That was bad news for AFL Specials members with their play on the first half being the highest scoring being blown away by the rampant Hawks, while Michael Hurley’s (under 25.5) big third term saw him go over the disposal line
  • West Coast temporarily surged to the top of the ladder with a big win over Port Adelaide, running away from the Power in the second term
  • Andrew Gaff (over 29.5) enjoyed an afternoon night as AFL Specials members experienced some joy, but the scoring was slow early and that was costly in another highest scoring half bet
  • Adeaide shook off Carlton in the second half to run out comfortable 10-goal winners
  • Brett’s team backed in the Blues to hang in early and were rewarded as they covered the +29.5 first half line, while Rory Laird (under 32.5) finished right on 32 touches as members were in the money
  • AFL Tips members had action on their second game of the round as North went up to Sydney and clung to an impressive two-point win
  • Big plays on the Roos head-to-head at $4.60 and at a line of +28.5 made for some very happy punters, with Daniel and Stephen keeping their perfect weekend intact
  • Brett’s team also enjoyed more success, backing Jake Lloyd (under 24.5) to have a quiet game as the Swan finished with just 17 disposals

It was a big Saturday in the NRL as well, with three more round 9 matches:

  • Canberra got the jump on the Titans early and never looked back en route to a 32-18 home win, with a big play earlier in the week from Steve Green getting the Green Machine at a price of $1.50
  • Unfortunately for NRL Specials members the match played out in the opposite fashion to what Brett’s team had concluded with the Titans +4.5 in the first half and Canberra -4.5 in the second stanza both losing
  • New Zealand put in a sterling defensive effort to thrash the Tigers 26-4 at home, with the visitors failing to cover a +2.5 first half line as they trailed 12-4 at the break
  • The final match of the night saw the Sharks limp home to claim a 22-20 win over fast-finishing Parramatta
  • The Eels scored three tries in the final six minutes but Mitch Moses was unable to convert from the sideline after the horn as the home side held on
  • It was great news for Steve Green’s members as the Eels +3.5 somehow saluted despite looking dead and buried with six minutes to play
  • For NRL Specials members, that late run was costly with Michael Jennings crossing for an unwanted try with just three minutes remaining on the clock

Three more matches in the AFL saw the round conclude, beginning with the reinging premiers trouncing of the Dockers:

  • Richmond were dominant for three quarters, leading by 44 points at halftime before an eight-goals-to-zero final term saw the margin finish at 77
  • Trent Cotchin (under 24.5) was a late withdrawal, meaning money back for members on that bet, while Lachie Neale (under 30.5) got off the chain to finish with 33 touches and a losing bet
  • No such disappointment for AFL Tips members, who continued on their merry way thanks to a big play on Richmond -39.5
  • Melbourne condemned St Kilda to another defeat as they cruised to a 39-point victory at Etihad Stadium
  • It became a perfect 5/5 for AFL Tips members for the weekend as Melbourne -19.5 saluted comfortably
  • Unfortunately for AFL Specials members, the second half saw the majority of the scoring and Jack Steven (under 28.5) recovered from a slow start to finish with 11 touches in the final term and 29 for the match
  • One of the games of the season so far came from the Gabba to finish the round, with the Pies fending off a desperate Lions outfit in the dying stages to claim a seven-point victory
  • Brett’s members had their Sunday go from bad to worse as the Lions fell four points short of covering the +4.5 quarter time line, before Steele Sidebottom (under 28.5) got had a mild dose of leather poisoning on his way to 34 disposals for the match

St George Illawarra rolled on with another impressive performance to kick off proceedings on Sunday for the NRL:

  • The Dragons steamrolled the Storm in the second half to run out comprehensive 34-14 victors
  • Steve’s members were left grinning again as the Red V made it 6/6 for the round, while each of the Futures bets moved closer still to blossoming into winners
  • Brett’s members saw a break-even on the game as the Dragons covered the -0.5 first half line, but more points were scored in the second half rather than the first
  • A plucky Manly challenged the Roosters all the way but came up just short as Sydney claimed a 22-20 victory
  • It was another break-even game for NRL Specials members, this time with results reversed as Sydney failed to cover the first half line of -5.5 but most of the points coming early in the first half
Another weekend done and dusted, with some successful results across the board making for some happy punters.
