Another $75,000 up for grabs with bet365's Pick 6 Challenge

Leading bookmaker bet365 are putting $75,000 on the line for any logged-in member who correctly selects the winners of six specified races across the Caulfield, Morphettville, Newcastle and Sunshine Coast cards this weekend. There are also consolation prize pools of $10,000 to be split amongst those who tip five winners and $5,000 for those who 'only' pick four. 

Last weekend they had 12 customers pick five winners sharing in the $10,000 consolation prize. 

The six featured races are outlined below with the R&S team providing pre-race previews to give you a leg-up on the form. 

Caulfield Race 8 - Selangor Turf Club Handicap @ 3.40pm - 1400m 

Devoted (8) had no luck on resumption in the Country Discovery at Yarra Valley and looks far better suited out to the 1400m here. He ran over this trip twice last time in, running Amenable to a head and beating Here To Shock, both of which read very well. First Accused (7) is a consistent Tasmanian horse who comes over. He's got the ratings to be competitive in this and he loves the 1400m. Don't underestimate. Gentleman Roy (1) is the class horse in the race but is off a year long spell. Has a tricky draw to contend with as well. Watch the market. Savannah Cloud (3) looks suited stepping up to 1400m now and should be thereabouts. King Magnus (2) races well second up and should be in the finish.

Morphettville Race 7 - Hahn The Cummings Stakes @ 3.52pm - 1600m 

Pounding (2) sets up perfectly for this third-up off the back of two solid chasing efforts back in Victoria. Boasts a terrific record over this journey and gets a key jockey booking in Shinn. Expect him to be fighting out the finish. Jimmy The Bear (11) couldn't live up to market support fresh but was far from disgraced. Usually needs the run and takes benefit from reuniting with Egan. Will appreciate the rise in trip and is right in the mix. Sirileo Miss (4) can be excused for not featuring first-up off a long break. Talented mare on her day and could blow them away if at best. Keep very safe. Barbie's Fox (14) doesn't win out of turn but has been tackling some tough races. Drawn ugly but will be taking the strongest strides late. Watch for her climbing over their backs. Chicago Storm (6) is going too good to ignore.

Newcastle Race 9 - Triple M Thunder Thousand Benchmark 78 Handicap @ 4.00pm - 900m 

Jedibeel (3) was well fancied on resumption when a slick winner over 1000m at Randwick Kensington in easier grade on April 25. Schiller sticks and no surprise to see him go through his grades this preparation. Storm The Ramparts (7) stalked the speed on resumption but no match late when second to JEDIBEEL over 1000m at Randwick Kensington. Goes just as well second-up and gets map favours from the good draw. Can turn the tables here. Our Bellagio Miss (4) returns from a 49 day let-up. Drifted back and outclassed when 13th in the G3 B/Day Card over 1200m at Rosehill on March 23. This is her pet trip and can turn it around in the conditions. Markwell Dreamer (12) holding his form well in easier company and drops 12kg for this after finishing a close up second over this trip at Muswellbrook in BM66 grade on May 3. Goes into the exotics.

Sunshine Coast Race 7 - A.D Hollindale Stakes @ 4.08pm - 1800m 

The $500,000 Group 2 Hollindale Stakes. Huetor (2) couldn't have been more impressive taking out the JRA Plate at Randwick last time out when making up a stack of ground late. Will have come on now and gets Berry on board third-up. Has placed over this track and trip and should be right there at the business end. Mighty Ulysses (8) is a bit of a hit or miss type but is certainly capable on his day. Has to be included. Just Folk (5) is on the quick back-up but doesn't mind that and the extra furlong will suit. Should be very competitive once again. Kovalica (4) is a quality animal looking to regain his best form. Worth another chance. Numerian (1) next best.

Caulfield Race 9 - BlueBlood Thoroughbreds Handicap @ 4.15pm - 1600m 

Frigid (6) looks the one to beat again. She was heavily backed to win at Mornington and did so well, scoring by 1.5 lengths. Stays at the mile again but finds a similar race here and looks to get a good run midfield. Papillon Club (8) is the danger. She worked home well late last start in a Vobis race here over 1400m and looks like she's crying out for a mile now. Her best efforts go a long way to winning this and she can land closer from the inside gate. Lethal Thoughts (9) is racing well and should be in the finish again. No issue with him out to a mile now. Farhh Flung (10) was behind Frigid last start but is racing well and in the mix. Golden Path (7) next best.

Morphettville Race 8 - The Goodwood @ 4.30pm - 1200m 

Oscar's Fortune (15) is a talented three-year-old that continues to step up to the market. Wasn't far away in The Quokka behind multiple G1 winner Overpass. Has already run the figures to put him right in the finish and gets in superbly at the weights under the conditions. Expect the wizard to give him every chance. Amelia's Jewel (2) has always promised so much. Started fav in The Quokka, beating OF by a head. Gives him 3kgs this time but is sure to be charging hard under Lane. Johnny Rocker (9) followed up his surprising placing in the G1 William Reid with a strong effort in the TJ. Gets in well at the weights and will be breathing down their necks late. Benedetta (7), I Am Me (6) and Climbing Star (3) all come through key lead up (Sangster) with the latter being best home. Can make a case for all three. Skybird (16) was a breath-taking winner of the G2 Tobin Bronze here a fortnight ago. This is obviously tougher but she warrants respect.
