We've gone through all our tips to give you the five best bets you should be placing or using as multi-fillers this weekend.

Horse Racing – Caulfield Race 6 Thousand Guineas

Saturday 3:10pm


The Tip: Smart Melody


Why: The Kris Lees filly is unbeaten in five starts and did all the bullocking work outside the leader in the Guineas Prelude but still held on to beat Thrillster and El Dorado Dreaming. Her winning time was faster than the colts and geldings on the day.


Draw two, McDonald can position her close to the speed and all she needs is a clear run to win. J Mac is on fire leading into the meeting too after winning five races at Warwick Farm midweek.

Horse Racing – Randwick Race 7 The TAB Everest

Saturday 4:15pm


The Tip: Shoals



Why: Has won four from six at the distance and is arguably the biggest mud lark in this event being 3 from 3 on wet ground, two of which were in Group 1’s and the other Group 2 class. Only missed a place once in 12 starts.


If she produces the type of finish she showed in the Premiere Stakes, when coming from near last to go down by 0.2l to Santa Ana Lane, she will be winning this. Oh, did we mention she has had four starts for two wins and two placings when second-up? Ticks all the boxes.

Horse Racing – Caulfield Race 9 Caulfield Guineas

Saturday 5:15pm


The Tip: The Autumn Sun



Why: Was brilliant winning the Golden Rose, coming from last to beat Zousain and Graff with the latter going around in the TAB Everest. Has won four of five but there is no doubt that he should be unbeaten after he was most unlucky when third in the Stan Fox behind Tarka. Gets barrier five but maps to settle in a midfield role. Has a huge motor and only needs luck to win.

Rugby League – New Zealand v Australia

Saturday 5:45pm


The Tip: Latrell Mitchell Anytime Tryscorer



Why: After an Origin win and Premiership with the Roosters, Latrell caps a huge 2018 with a Test call-up at the expense of Will Chambers. Finishing as top point scorer in the NRL and fourth in tackle breaks, Mitchell has shown he can rise to the occasion scoring on his Origin debut and in the Grand Final. Furthermore, Latrell has scored 5 tries in his last 3 games.

Harness Racing – Melton Race 7 Victoria Cup

Saturday 9:06pm


The Tip: Chicago Bull



Why: Multiple Group One winner who is shooting for 10 straight wins. Is tough, can sprint or stay and oozes class. Has led and won at his past three starts but not sure if he finds the front here with Tiger Tara drawn his inside. Having his first start on the eastern seaboard but is arguably the best horse in the race.
