Members enjoyed success at the footy over the weekend, while there was a roller-coaster of ups and downs at the track.
At The Footy
- Geelong ($2.30) got things started with a tough win in Sydney
- Melbourne (-46.5) made hard work of it but eventually covered against Fremantle
Things were looking grim for AFL Specials members until Super Sunday produced a perfect 6/6 across the three games:
- Shaun Higgins (under 27.5 disposals) and David Swallow (under 23.5) were both tagged as North beat the Suns
- Essendon (+4.5 at halftime) fought back in the second term to lead after a scrappy first half against the Pies
- Steele Sidebottom (under 30.5) flew home with a big last term but it (thankfully) wasn’t enough
- West Coast (-5.5 at halftime) took advantage of a wasteful GWS
- Josh Kelly (under 30.5) had a quiet first half and never fully recovered
A monster $1,100 profit on Sunday alone to make for yet another winning weekend.
At The Track
- Ennazus ($5.50/$2.20) was an each-way winner on Saturday
- Shebaa ($2.00) and Amantis ($2.10) both finished in the placings for small collects
Members have now made just shy of $5,000 profit since the start of June.
- So You Too ($4) got the ball rolling at Gawler
- Danouli ($11) was a strong winner two races later
Two desperately disappointing rides on Sunday put a dampener on what could have been a monster weekend.
Ombudsman ($5) was a good winner for NSW Winners members, with the highly-fancied Redouble ($3.10) disappointing late in the day.
Two winners on Saturday for Key Bets members, with No Annamossity ($2.30) and Ambiente ($2.40) getting the job done within minutes of each other.
The disappointment of the weekend has to go to Sabkhat ($3.10) which led into the straight and kicked away, looking home and hosed before getting a stitch near the line and going down in crushing fashion.
Trev’s Bets members had just one winner as well with Good ‘n’ Fast ($2.90) saluting in Race 5 at Flemington. Trevor got the race spot on with his three selections running the Trifecta.
WA Winners members enjoyed a winner in Misty Metal ($3.80) for a small losing day. However just like Trev in Melbourne earlier in the day, WA analyst Mark Van Triet nailed the race with his selections running 1-2-3; the second and third-placed runners each at double figures as well.
