The first Saturday of the Spring was a good one at the track for the Australian Gambling staff, with our suggested bet – Grande Rosso – saluting at Caulfield, and our tip at Randwick – Spieth – running second in the fifth race.
Craig Williams rode Grande Rosso home beautifully for a win of $3.10 and $1.50 for the place, which was a nice way to start our spring campaign, on a day that saw the running of the first Group 1 of the season – the Memsie Stakes – which was won by the favourite, Vega Magic.
We also finished in front with our NRL selections, picking both the Broncos and the Tigers to win by 1-12 points over the Cowboys and the Warriors respectively. Those two wins added $2.90 and $3.10 into the kitty.
Our Rugby League expert also picked winners in two more games, but unfortunately for him and our loyal punters, both the Sea Eagles and the Storm beat the Panthers and the Raiders respectively, by more than the 1-12 point margin that he had tipped.
The UFC circus headed to Rotterdam in the Netherlands in the early hours of Sunday morning Australian time, but the early start didn’t worry us, when we backed Alexander Volkov to beat Stefan Struve what was an absolute slugfest of a main event.
Unfortunately, our run couldn’t continue in Europe later on Sunday morning, when Spain belted Italy 3-0. We took the draw.
We had 14 separate Suggested/Best Bet selections across the past week, and while we only picked five winners, they were at sufficient enough odds to return $123.10 for a $10 per bet investment, a loss of just under $7, which in our book, is break-even.
We’ll be back again next week to find you some more winners.
