The Melbourne Cup Carnival may be over but there’s still plenty of great racing around the country as attention turns to Perth for their Spring Carnival. This weekend the Group 1 Railway Stakes will be a highlight, and our Perth local Tim Geers is champing at the bit to see some big racing from Ascot this weekend.
Over at SportChamps, there’s plenty of great contests on offer to give you the chance for a big pay day from a small outlay. There’s a huge range of contests for players at all buy-in levels, headlined by the $7,500 prize pool for the Saturday Gallops contest with a $100 buy-in.
However perhaps the best value contests on SportChamps this weekend are the month-long contests for November. That’s right, bet every day for a whole month and see who is left standing! It sounds daunting but at the moment, the leaders are very much within reach.
There’s a $10,000 November-long Contest for a $50 buy-in where the leader is sitting with just 10x the start bank. With over $2,000 for first place, you can do the math and work out that there’s value to be found. One winner and you’re in contention for the big bucks!
There’s also a $5,000 November-long Contest for just a $10 buy-in where the top prize is currently at $860. Entries are locked out on Saturday night, so this is your last chance to jump into the November contests!
If you’re looking for tips then make sure you watch our preview video below featuring Tim and Smatho as they take a closer look at the SportChamps contests.
In Race 5 at Ascot, Tim has found one offering some good value as he’s going with Ain’t No Other Man on an each-way basis. At odds of $9.50 (at the time of recording) that will give your tournament bank a good boost should he salute!
In the WA Guineas (Race 7), Tim is sticking with Treasured Star after it was a horror watch last run for backers. Stuck in traffic with nowhere to go, she found all sorts of trouble and was painful viewing. But let’s hope she can find clear air at $2.90.
The feature race of the day is the Railway Stakes (Race 8) where Western Empire is a near moral but the price of $1.70 isn’t anything to get too excited about. If you’re back in the pack, it might be an opportunity for an exotic play with a quinella or trifecta to climb up the leaderboard.
