It’s good to see Ten take some risks with new content for One.

Backed by Ladbrokes.com.au, horse racing expert, media personality and sports lover Andy Maher will man the Ladbrokes.com.au Desk providing odds for key sporting events and races throughout the  show.

The panel will also be joined by horse racing guru Anthony Mithen each week to discuss the weekend’s races and tips for punters.

Tune in for news and views on the Melbourne Spring Racing Carnival, NRL Grand Final, the Hyundai A-League, Formula One, V8 Supercars, the Australian Motorcycle Grand Prix, Major League Baseball,  NFL, NBA, the English Premier League, Rugby Union, Cricket and more.
