The Tip: Winx
Why: The “Queen of the turf” WINX will look to make it 27 straight victories and only bad luck will stop that from happening. Resumed on August 18 by taking out the Group One named in her honour at this track. Is a winner of seven of her nine starts second-up and although this is a handy field, they won’t be able to match her. The best galloper in the world!
The Tip: Humidor
Why: HUMIDOR looks to have returned in fine fashion and can make it back-to-back Group Ones. Resumed from a spell when eighth to Showtime in the Lawrence Stakes before flashing home to score a last stride victory over Kementari in the Memsie Stakes. Absolutely loves Flemington and is drawn the inside so he maps to sit just behind the speed. Big show expected again.
The Tip: Dragons +14 (Line)
Why: The Dragons scored a stunning 48-18 upset last week over Brisbane but can they double up this week against the Rabbitohs? Injuries to key players such as captain Gareth Widdop are ultimately going to play against them here because Kurt Mann isn’t a suitable replacement for the five-eighth.
The Rabbitohs were good last week against the Storm but it was their defence after scoring a try that let them down, ultimately conceding points on a number of occasions after putting points on the board. In what should be a cracking game in front of a bumper crowd, our money is with Souths but we can’t see it being a blowout.
The Tip: Kane Anytime Goalscorer
Why: The winners of the last three Premier League Golden Boots will take to the field on Saturday (Kane and Salah of course) as well as the winner of the last World Cup Golden Boot.
Kane has five goals against Liverpool so far in his career – three of which came last season – and once again he’ll be Spurs’ main goal threat against Liverpool. The England man loves scoring on the big occasion, and we’re tipping him to score at any time against Liverpool.
The Tip: Golovkin to win by decision or technical decision
Why: A lesson we certainly learned in the first bout is that both men have granite chins. They both landed clean and barely budged their opponent; in particular Canelo had flashes of success where he landed power punches on Golovkin’s chin and GGG didn’t blink.
There’s no reason to believe the second bout will be any different regardless of what Canelo tries to do; Golovkin is likely to take his best shots, walk through them and wear Canelo down with his superior activity and strength. It certainly feels like another close distance fight is on the cards – with Golovkin once again having the best of the majority of the rounds.
