- Ballarat Race 8: #2 First Mate ($2.90)
FIRST MATE resumes from a 38 week spell and proven on softer tracks, hard to go past.
Carlton VS Adelaide Crows
- Carlton (-21.5 Points) Handicap ($1.90)
- Matthew Kennedy 25+ Disposals ($1.87)
Carlton won the corresponding fixture last year by 10 points, and generally have good history against the Crows. The venue for this match will also benefit the Blues, who know the fast track of Marvel well. Kennedy has moved back into the midfield in the absence of Hewett and had 24 disposals last week against North Melbourne. The bull went 30+ in the first three rounds this year, showing his ability to accumulate.
