Singing the ‘Blues’

The Blues are 14th and Pies 13th on the AFL ladder after Round 1. But that won’t dampen the intensity of these arch-rivals tonight after they burst through their banners on the hallowed MCG turf.

Will Carlton be ‘the team that never lets you down’, or will it be ‘side by side we stick together’ for Collingwood?

Well, TAB has come up with an enticing $7.50 AFL/Greys offer – the ‘old dark navy Blues’ to beat the Magpies and Aston Lavinia to win a Launching Pad semi-final at Sandown Park.

Trained at Avalon by Jessica Sharp, Aston Lavinia made it three wins in a row with an impressive 29.48sec heat performance. It was her sixth win from 16 starts and she’s three from nine, with a 29.31sec PB, at Sandown.

It’s only Round 2 – and forget their lowly places on the ladder – but the Blues V Pies is always a ‘blockbuster’ and it starts at 7.20pm, while Aston Lavinia is in Race 8 Box 4 at 8.57pm.

WATCH: Frontrunning Aston Lavinia (2) makes it a successive metropolitan ‘hat-trick’ claiming a Launching Pad heat in 29.48sec at Sandown.
