Super Saturday Insights

TAB Betting is open today

TAB betting opens today for Saturday’s SA Champions Season climax and what should be a thrilling finale to a memorable term.

Racing enthusiast and long-time punter William Milkovitch provides his thoughts on the big raceday.

The Gold Cup is run on the most ridiculous course configuration for 3200m, suggests William Milkovitch.

Who was the bright spark to erect an acute elbow turn at the end of the main straight? Can any jockey truthfully say that they can keep their horse in stride after being instructed to make a swift start?

Anyway, I suppose it’s a bit better than racing on William Nicol!

I have to say, I don’t fancy much here except Strathdon. I’ll put the field in my P6 and hope that Humpty Dumpty comes rolling home.
