Races 16th October

Wet tracks all over Australia today and even though its Caulfield Cup day, I can't possibly have a bet there (well, not a serious one anyway - lol). Track is likely to be a quagmire and you may as well throw the form out the window.

Sydney r5 n1 Buffering 1.5 units to win
Randwick seems to have escaped the big wet so thats where my main interest will be today. Buffering should cross and lead here in this small field and its form against similar company is first class. Stable is in form and looks the one to berat here and a good anchor if taking quadrellas.

Golf - McGladery Classic

Course experience not really necessary here as it is a new course. Players who do well on links types courses could be advantaged.

Jeff Quinney - 1.25 units to win @ $190 (betfair) & 2 units, top 25 @ $5.00 (sportsbet)
Perpetual non winner who has never won on tour. However has a few things in his favour this week. Is a a good putter and quite accurate once he gets to the 150 yard mark and with only 2 par 5s this week, playing the par 4s well will be advantageous. His links form stands up okay as well. If we look at Pebble Beach he has finished T35, T22 and T24 his last three times there. Nothing earth shattering I know but it is excellent compared to his general form.
Is currently 126th on the money list (right on the bubble) and needs a good performance this week. Has made 7 cuts from his past 8 starts and is probably in the best form (for him) of his PGA Tour career.
Great value in the top 25 market in my opinion.

Brett Wetterich - 0.75 units to win @ $90 (betfair) & 2 units, top 25 @ $3.00 (sportsbet).
Three top 25s from his past four tournalments means he comes into this in pretty good form. Has good all round figures for this type of course. Currently on a medical extension and needs to earn approx 300K for the rest of the season to get himself a ticket for next year. Does have a lot of ability when right.

A costly 8 on a par 5 in the final round cost Quinney a chance to win the tournalment overal - finished equal 9th but it could have been so much better.

But then again thats what non-winners do.
