22 September 2018 10:21 PM Race previews and tips for Wyong on Sunday

Race 1 – 1:00PM ROILY AND BOOTHY FOR SMEETHY PLATE (1350 METRES) Expecting a big improvement from 3. Miss Moana on what she showed at Newcastle at her second start off a six-week break. She reared as the gates opened and settled well back, was never in the hunt at all and it struck me as a forgive run. Go back to her debut and she charged to the line like a horse 13

"Our bowlers did a really good job to make them bat for 46 overs but our batters have got to be accountable," Allsopp said.

It happened at the 1987 US Open. I was the chair umpire for the fourth-round stadium court match between John McEnroe and Slobodan Zivojinovic where I issued a warning, point penalty and a game penalty against McEnroe. The game penalty, for a string of obscenities directed at me, came at 4-5, costing McEnroe the set and making the match one set all. John McEnroe 21

2 September 2018 11:04 AM God was Withers as Rams clinch crazy win to put Bushies fire out

The Rams looked to have sewn the Cup up when second-rower Michael Gilmour strolled over to make it 30-0 after 48 minutes. Ron Leapai, a one-handed Michael Geiger, Adam Lucas and Cody Hodge had all crossed in the first half of a dominant Woden display. But a switch seemed to get flicked and all of a sudden the Bushrangers started to make easy metres through 23

Since moving to Weir's Ballarat yard, Nature Strip has won a back-end three-year-old handicap at Flemington and followed up at the same track over 1200 metres in a set weights and penalties event. After a three-week let-up he went to Adelaide to win in listed company, easily seeing off the highly-regarded filly Sunlight, who is a year younger. The horse's 25

5 August 2018 11:00 AM Cooma's Ben Thompson books a world title shot

But things are slightly different this time around with Iliev opting to take the fight on the condition it was under Muay Thai rules, which utilise the eight-point striking system (punches, kicks, knees, elbows) and the full clinch, rather than the K1 rules they fought under last time. That won't bother Thompson. If he can put it all together like he did against 21
