No. 10 Try Pink

Geelong – Race 6 three.00pm AEST
No. eight Rockmeartie
Rockmeartie has all the time proven a good bit of capacity and she or he actually does stand out as a worth betting proposition on this area.

Brisbane Broncos vs Melbourne Storm 7.50pm AEST
Melbourne Storm To Beat The Line (-Three.5 Points)
The Melbourne Storm have a merely excellent document at Suncorp Stadium they usually haven’t misplaced on the venue to the Brisbane Broncos since 2009.

This race is not any harder than what she has confronted throughout her preparation up to now and if she is ready to replicate her earlier type she is going to show very robust to beat.
Wyong – Race 5 2:40pm AEST
No. 2 Good Verdict
Good Verdict confirmed some indicators of promise throughout his maiden racing marketing campaign and his two barrier trials within the lead-as much as his return to racing have been truthful.

Wyong – Race 6 three.15pm AEST
No. 7 Danzie
Danzie ran good time when he gained on debut at Goulburn and he had excuses when he was crushed final begin. The type popping out of that race is sweet and this race is not any harder.

Wyong – Race 7 three.50pm AEST
No. 1 Kings Of Leon
Kings Of Leon has been freshened-up since his win at Tamworth final begin and his current barrier trial at Hawkesbury was very sharp.

He has a robust flip-of-foot and is sweet worth on the present worth.
Gracida has joined the secure of David Vandyke after beforehand being educated by Tony Gollan. His current barrier trial on the Sunshine Coast was wonderful and he’s a horse that all the time produces his greatest type recent.

Doomben – Race 6 three:12pm AEST
No. 1 Sneaky Glance
Sneaky Glance has gone to a different degree this preparation and he comes into this race on the again of a powerful win within the Grafton Guineas Prelude.

Tambo’s Heart is racing in profession greatest type and he’s nice worth to document one other race win this afternoon.

He doesn’t should get as far again from barrier two this afternoon and he must be within the end.
Godolphin have elected to step Evanesce up in distance and that could be what she must carry out at her greatest. She has all the time appeared like a horse that might race properly with blinkers they usually go on immediately, whereas the reserving of Brenton Avdulla is an enormous constructive.

Newcastle – Race three 1:25pm AEST
No. four Hypnotist

The Street Cry filly is nicely and really over the chances on the present quote of $eight.
THIS time final yr the Wallabies suffered a humiliating Three-Zero series loss to Motherland England.
A yr later and the Wallabies have began their international season with two victories from three matches.
Despite two victories to savour there stays a sense of vacancy within the air after three somewhat uninspiring performances.
There have been moments to carry you from your seats, however so too have been there far too many moments to cringe and look away.
And in the event that they didn’t know already after scraping house towards Italy 40-27, the Wallabies needed to wait lower than an hour to witness the gulf between them and their subsequent opponents, the All Blacks, who have been sensible towards a really nicely drilled British and Irish Lions aspect.
Here are our participant ratings from the Wallabies’ three Tests.
Israel Folau — eight.5
The Wallabies fullback is nicely and really again firing on all cylinders.
Where final yr he might hardly purchase a attempt, the twin international has rediscovered his mojo and is clearly having fun with his rugby once more after struggling because the World Cup.
Folau turned the primary Wallaby to attain two tries in three consecutive matches.
He was, as normal, impeccable beneath the excessive ball.
Where he misplaced factors was within the last 20 minutes of the second Test in Sydney, the place he lacked some composure on the dying when the Wallabies have been urgent for a attempt however some poor arms noticed Australia left ruing missed alternatives as Scotland pulled off a well-deserved victory.
His mind explosion of a fast throw towards Italy additionally left Australia beneath the pump, as he performed on shortly deep in his personal 22 and Bernard Foley couldn’t management the poor move which hit the deck in entrance of his personal posts.
Karmichael Hunt — eight
Hunt was the actual discover of the June marketing campaign.
More than two years after switching to rugby, Hunt lastly made his debut towards Fiji in Melbourne.
Right from the outset he appeared born to put on the gold jersey.
He attacked the road typically, appeared snug within the second playmaking place, was the main voice within the backline and was aggressive in defence.
Hunt’s kamikaze strategy didn’t all the time work, as he was bumped away on events, however his ball-and-all defensive strategy was refreshing to see.
The 30-year-old was additionally one of many few to assault the breakdown.
Unfortunately he’s too mild and was pushed off the ball too simply.
Wallabies: Two NRL previous boys mix for a attempt.
Hunt’s cash ball for Izzy
Henry Speight — eight
Speight continued his high-quality type from Super Rugby crossing the road twice in his one match towards Fiji.
But a hamstring damage noticed the Brumbies winger miss the subsequent two Tests.
Assuming he’s match, a lock for one wing towards the All Blacks in August.
Sefa Naivalu — eight
Like Speight, Naivalu performed only one Test however made up for not being chosen within the opening two Tests by scoring twice on the weekend towards Italy.
Unfortunately, a syndesmosis damage will hold Naivalu on the sidelines for the subsequent six weeks which is a serious blow as a result of he’s one of many few Wallabies with real try-scoring capability.
Rugby: Sefanaia Naivalu scores a blistering attempt.
Super Sefa skins Italians
Bernard Foley — 7
It was an up and down three Tests for Foley.
He was instrumental in Australia’s wins towards Fiji and Italy.
But a yellow card towards Scotland for a dumb late hit put the Wallabies on the again foot in recreation two.
Still Foley is Australia’s premier fly-half and, importantly, struck the ball nicely off the tee towards Italy after lacking a few necessary kicks towards Scotland in Sydney.
Quade Cooper — 7
Came off the bench late in all three matches and seemed the sharpest he’s been all season.
Against Scotland he made issues occur and appeared the almost certainly within the remaining quarter of the match to steer Australia to victory.
Dane Haylett-Petty — 6.5
He was constant all through the three Test matches, however we’d like extra out of Haylett-Petty.
There’s little question he’s ok to start out for the Wallabies, however by enjoying on the wing a part of his recreation is being wasted which is his wonderful boot and supportive play across the fringes which we see when he’s at fullback.
But as strong as he’s, he lacks the real velocity or measurement to be a damaging winger and put worry within the opposition eyes.
Will Genia — 5.5
Two howlers towards Scotland value the Wallabies dearly, because the Scots pounced to attain twice from his errors.
Genia’s kicking from the bottom of the ruck was notably poor towards Scotland.
He did, nevertheless, rating a attempt to deliver the Wallabies again into the match.
But, for probably the most half, his passing remained at a excessive commonplace and the tempo he performed with high quality all through the series.
He was man of the match towards Fiji and delivered a composed efficiency towards Italy which noticed him rebound after nightmare earlier week.
Overall, nevertheless, his series was summed up by an overthrown move which flew over Bernard Foley after making a break by means of the center.
Reece Hodge — 5.5
Had few alternatives off the bench to impress, however took his probability on the weekend as he galloped away so as to add some respectability to the scoreboard for the Wallabies.
However, he lacked a little bit of composure in the course of the first two Tests off the bench.
Still, Hodge gives nice versatility, however he must personal a place and the damage dramas because the Rebels this yr haven’t helped his trigger.
Tevita Kuridrani — 5
Played the primary two Tests and whereas Kuridrani was strong, he didn’t fairly do sufficient to demand the No 13 jersey towards the All Blacks.
The disappointing factor is that two-three years in the past Kuridrani was one of many brightest prospects.
An enormous presence within the midfield, Kuridrani possessed good footwork to match his hulking presence.
Unfortunately, the Fijian-born Wallaby is among the quieter figures within the backline and continues to go lacking all through video games.
Rob Horne — 5
Surprisingly given a run at outdoors centre after Kuridrani was dropped, Horne wasn’t capable of seize the chance with each palms.
In reality, his palms have been the difficulty all yr.
Playing predominantly within the midfield for the Waratahs this season, Horne’s arms have been poor all yr and his passing not nice both.
Those troubles continued towards Fiji, though he did execute one cross to perfection as he put Naivalu away down the left-hand touchline to attain.
Eto Nabuli — four
Another shock decide for recreation two, Nabuli appeared like a timid cat in his Test debut.
Although he was strong on the wing, he didn’t go attempting to find the ball like skilled wingers do.
Joe Powell — n/a
Used sparingly, it will be unfair to offer him a mark.
Not used within the second Test, Powell was given two minutes towards Italy and helped pave the best way for Hodge’s attempt.
While within the first Test towards Fiji he performed virtually 1 / 4 of the match.
One dodgy cross, however an element from that he was fast and energetic.
Adam Coleman — 9
Australia’s greatest all through the June series.
We all find out about Coleman’s aggression and his means within the lineout, however what we began to see all through the three Tests was his ball-skills.
He’s not fairly at the usual of the world’s greatest second-rower Brodie Retallick, however he’s beginning to have the identical impression on the group as him.
Allan Alaalatoa — 7.5
The younger Brumby began forward of Sekope Kepu and the time within the No Three jersey will assist him immensely within the lead as much as the Rugby Championship.
While the Wallabies’ scrum struggled at occasions towards Scotland and Italy, the difficulties confronted have been predominantly on the loose-head aspect.
Alaalatoa’s workrate and want to get caught in can also be spectacular.
Also, can we please deliver his brother Mike house?
Michael Hooper — 7.5
He was comparatively quiet by his personal lofty requirements towards Italy, however was impeccable through the first two Tests.
One of some gamers who seems to be match match and prepared for international rugby each week.
The Wallabies’ breakdown and clean-out wants a variety of work, nevertheless it’s a group recreation and Hooper can’t be held totally accountable for Australia’s inaccuracy.
Ned Hanigan — 7
In a perfect world Hanigan would have continued to go about his enterprise at Super Rugby earlier than being thrust into the Test surroundings.
But determined occasions name for determined measures and Hanigan was thrust into the beginning spot at blindside flanker.
He did an admirable job.
He’s nonetheless a number of kilograms mild, however Hanigan is a implausible long-term prospect within the place.
Good within the lineout, he hits the ball up willingly and is a personality within the staff.
Tatafu Polota-Nau — 6
Justified his beginning place towards the Fijians with a robust efficiency however his lineout points returned towards Scotland.
With the sport within the stability, Polota-Nau overshot his jumpers on various events.
Fitness definitely performed an element.
Stephen Moore — 6
After being dropped to the bench for the opening Test of the yr, the Wallabies captain dropped one chilly on his personal line.
It was an embarrassing blunder which didn’t do a lot to encourage a recall.
But he rotated his poor begin to rating from the again of a rolling maul.
Against Scotland he was strong off the bench and put in one other satisfactory efficiency towards Italy.
Still, Moore doesn’t have the leg drive he as soon as did.
Sam Carter — 6
Given a go forward of Rory Arnold, Carter was as anticipated strong all through the primary three Tests.
The extraordinary expertise of Fijian lock Leone Nakarawa stood out within the opening Test and Carter’s hit-it-up type seemed considerably pedestrian, however Carter definitely gave it his all.
After being dropped to the bench for the third Test, Carter made an impression and offered a relaxed head off the bench.
Scott Higginbotham — 5.5
Given one other go at international rugby, Higginbotham’s return to the Test area didn’t fairly go to plan.
He was strong, however nothing extra.
His one-handed offload which missed three Wallabies and as an alternative discovered the one lurking Scot in Sydney in the course of the second half just about summed up his two Tests.
He didn’t play the third Test, however a again damage might have been the reason.
Richard Hardwick — 5.5
A incredible turnover together with his first contact in Test rugby, however was given comparatively restricted alternatives off the bench within the first two Tests.
Hardwick wasn’t included in recreation three with Jack Dempsey given a go.
Rory Arnold — 5.5
Surprisingly left on the bench for the primary two Tests with Carter most popular, Arnold wasn’t capable of have the influence we had hoped off the bench.
He didn’t bend the road we had seen final yr on the international stage or for the Brumbies in 2017, however he was good on the set-piece.
Lopeti Timani — 5
Given a run for the ultimate Test, Timani went out and in of the sport.
He began properly sufficient, getting a couple of early touches however then went lacking earlier than slowly coming again into the match.
The No eight place is properly and really open for the Rugby Championship.
Sean McMahon will definitely come again into the reckoning after lacking the June Tests resulting from damage.
Sekope Kepu — 5
Came off the bench in all three Tests however wasn’t capable of affect the match a fantastic deal.
Even nonetheless, he’s one of many first picked front-rowers for the Wallabies.
Scott Sio — 5
Returned by way of the bench towards Scotland after lacking nearly all of the season with damage after which chosen within the beginning pack towards Italy.
He appeared brief a run.
A smart move to provide him a go towards Italy, however the Wallabies want Sio’s scrummaging to raise and for him to get his palms on the ball extra.
Tom Robertson — 5
Started the primary two Tests, Robertson struggled to say himself throughout the sector and on the scrum.
A younger prop, the expertise he’s gaining can be useful long-term.
But not but a beginning international front-rower.
Toby Smith — four.5
The Wallabies have been smashed on the scrum towards Italy within the second-half and Smith paid the worth for collapsing and was proven a yellow card.
One or two good moments throughout the pitch, however he’ll be disenchanted for his lack of impression on the scrum.
Jack Dempsey — n/a
Came off the bench for the ultimate jiffy of the final match and made a helpful first contact getting properly over the benefit line.
Force Of Magic will take profit from this run, however he’s the category horse on this area and he does standout as a superb every-means guess at his present worth. He didn’t produce a poor efficiency final begin and he was capable of win an version of the Highway Handicap at Rosehill Gardens. He can run an enormous race recent at juicy odds.
Wagga – Race 5 three.25pm AEST
No. 5 Mitchell Road
The favorite Kabrocco does appear to be a great danger on this race and I’m eager to take him on with Mitchell Road. Mitchell Road has a superb report over 1000 metres and his type this marketing campaign has been strong. He was crushed by Lazyaxl eventually begin, however he can flip-the-tables on his rival this afternoon.
Wagga – Race 7 four.40pm AEST
No. 2 Snippet Of Gold
Snippet Of Gold might hardly have been extra spectacular when he gained over this monitor and distance final begin and if he is ready to replicate that effort he shall be extraordinarily robust to beat. The type popping out of that race has been robust and he maps to get a stunning run into this race as soon as once more.
Echuca – Race 9 four:30pm AEST
No. 7 Surf Coast
Surf Coast has been freshened-up since he failed to fireside at Pakenham final begin and he’s a a lot better horse than that efficiency suggests. I like the truth that Darren Weir has given him a barrier trial in between begins and he’s a horse that all the time performs at his greatest recent. This is his probability to return to profitable type.
Cronulla Sharks vs Manly Sea Eagles four.00pm AEST
Manly Sea Eagles To Beat The Line (+three.5 Points)
The Cronulla Sharks could also be robust to beat in entrance of their house followers at Southern Cross Group Stadium, however their report towards the road is house favourites is a really poor three-eight. The Manly Sea Eagles have gained 4 of their previous seven video games as away underdogs for an enormous revenue and they’re 6-1 towards the road on this state of affairs.
St Kilda vs Gold Coast Suns four.40pm AEST
Gold Coast Suns To Beat The Line (+25.5 Points)
This is an fascinating recreation between two sides which have struggled for consistency throughout this season up to now. St Kilda have coated the road in solely one among their previous 4 video games as residence favourites and the road of 25.5 factors does appear huge. The Suns are able to firing on their day and are a superb guess to cowl the road in Aussie Rules betting.
Chile vs Australia 1.00am AEST
Chile To Win And Both Teams To Score @ $three
Australia have proven in the course of the Confederations Cup so far that they’re able to scoring objectives, however defence continues to be an issue. The Socceroos are able to getting on the scoresheet on this conflict, however Chile’s attacking forces might be far too robust for the flimsy Socceroos defence.
Germany vs Cameroon 1.00am AEST
Cameroon Or Draw Double Chance @ $2.70
Germany haven’t been notably spectacular on the Confederations Cup up to now and they’re no positive-factor to beat Cameroon. Cameroon confirmed towards Chile that they’re able to defending strongly for lengthy durations of time and they’re removed from the worst guess to take one thing from their ultimate Confederations Cup pool recreation conflict.
Darktown Strutter led from begin to end to document a dominant win at Ipswich final begin and the shape popping out of that race has been robust. She continues to be unproven at this journey, however she does look to have loads of velocity and skill. The I Am Invincible filly will take up the operating within the early levels and show robust to catch.
Gold Coast – Race 5 2.39pm AEST
No. 1 Bronzegate
Bronzegate made his Australian racing debut with an in depth second behind Ledoyen on the Sunshine Coast and if he is ready to take a step ahead from that efficiency he’ll show very robust to beat. He maps to get a stunning path into this race and that is his probability to report a maiden win in Australia.
Gold Coast – Race 6 three.13pm AEST
No. three Sneaky Glance
Sneaky Glance has recorded two wins from as many begins this preparation and there was a lot to love concerning the flip-of-foot he confirmed to win the Grafton Guineas Prelude final begin. Trainer Toby Edmonds has freshened him up for this race and if he is ready to keep his present type there isn’t any doubt that he’s the horse to beat.
Gold Coast – Race 7 .00pm AEST
No. 1 Criquette
Criquette was solely narrowly denied final begin after doing loads of work early. She does look to get a softer lead right now and if she is returns to a semblance of her greatest type she does look to have a transparent class edge over the remainder of this subject.
