LAST WEEK was week thirty eight of our 2022 Punters Corner Charity Tipping Competition and thanks to Chris the guys got back in the winner’s circle after a couple of weeks of misses.
Chris was very keen on Major Jarod in race five at Albion Park last Saturday night and the four-year-old son of Art Major (USA) duly got the money at $1.90 on the Queensland tote.
The Methven Magpie's tip of Oscar Bonavena, in the big trot at Motukarara last Sunday, went a super race for second paying $2.30 a place and he has his foot firmly on the till with a winning turn very close.
Unfortunately, Mark's best bet for last week in the well-travelled Highview Sadler NZ got caught back on the fence and never got into things, in the second last race of the day at Menangle yesterday.
As we go into week thirty-nine The Magpie still leads the way in our annual tipping comp with $487.00 banked followed by Chris now with $333.00 and Mark on $318.50.
Friday @ Addington Race 8 No.6 WILD WILLOW
A first starter from the All Stars operation is always worthy of respect, in particular, an exceptionally well-bred youngster boasting solid trial/workout form.
Nat Rasmussen takes the drive and looks a terrific chance.
As soon as we hear from Mark and The Magpie we shall have their selections up.
Best regards to all.
