Bookies Corner

Will Sea The Stars see winning post? 

Horseracing, GAA and rugby are the main sports that will be in the spotlight this weekend. In horseracing the Irish Derby will be held at the Curragh on Sunday and John Oxxs star from Epsom, Sea the Stars is the hot favourite to lift another major title and he should oblige. Betting as follows: 4/6 Sea the Stars, 100/30 Fame and Glory, 7/2 Masterofthehorse 12/1 bar.

  In GAA the weekend matches are priced as follows: Kildare 4/7 v Laois 7/4;  Draw 15/2. Cavan 8/15 v Antrim 15/8; Draw 15/2. Sligo 9/2 v Galway 2/11;  Draw 12/1. Dublin 1/7 v Westmeath 13/2; Draw 12/1.

  In rugby its the second test between the Lions and South Africa. Betting as follows: South Africa 1/3 v the Lions 3/1; Draw 20/1. Handicap betting: Lions +9 points 1/1 South Africa -9 points 1/1. To win the series: South Africa 1/9 Lions 5/1.

Bet of the Week: We clicked again last week and we are now on a roll! 20 on South Africa paid dividends and we are now 81 ahead. This week I am going to play it safe and go for Sea the Stars to win the Irish derby. 20 at 4/6 should keep the winning run going.
