This weekend promises a feast of Group racing from Randwick, big fixtures in the NRL and AFL and action from the English Premier League as Manchester City again try to clinch the title.

NRL - St George Illawarra Dragons vs Cronulla Sharks

7:50PM Friday

 

The Tip: Euan Aitken to Score a Try

 

Why: Aitken has scored in four of five matches so far this season. As well as this, he has three tries in his past three matches against the Sharks. With the Dragons' humming, we expect Aitken is likely to continue his streak of try-scoring form.

 

Horse Racing – G1 Queen Elizabeth Stakes (2000m)

3:05PM Saturday

 

The Tip: Happy Clapper to Place @ $2.05*

 

Why: With Winx almost certain to take out her 25th in a row, there is plenty of value to be found in the place market. Happy Clapper was a brilliant winner in last week's Doncaster Mile and maps reasonably well again here. He’s only missed the top 2 twice from his last 10 runs and maps reasonably again here so should be a good chance at filling one of the place spots.

 

Horse Racing – G1 Sydney Cup (3200m)

3:45pm Saturday

 

The Tip: Who Shot Thebarman to Place @$4.20*

 

Why: He has been working well towards this run and is ready for the 3200m trip. Has a good record over this distance and beat a few of these over the Spring in his Moonee Valley Cup win. Also has a good pull in the weights - 4kg better off than the last time he met Almandin when he lost by under 1.5 lengths.

 

EPL - Tottenham vs Manchester City

4:45AM Sunday

 

The Tip: Tottenham to Win @ 3.20

 

Why: Spurs are now unbeaten in their last 12 home games, with 10 of these being victories. City, meanwhile, have lost fourof their last six in all competitions, including each of their last two against a similar standard of opposition in Liverpool and Man Utd.

 

NRL - Penrith Panthers vs Gold Coast Titans

2:00PM Sunday

 

The Tip: Gold Coast Titans +7.5 @ $1.91*

 

Why: Gold Coast arguably has come through the best formline in the NRL with their only two losses being against unbeaten duo St. George Illawarra and New Zealand. After another reasonably impressive win against Manly last week, 7.5 points seems to be a generous line against a Penrith team who has been a little inconsistent.
