In Soccer…

Sydney FC is the first team through to the FFA Cup final.

The A-League heavyweights beat Canberra Olympic last night.

Kate Lavrencic reports.


Sydney’s impressive win, included a sparkling comeback from Bernie Ibini…

He bagged his team’s third goal… In his first competitive game in 18 months.

Commentator: “Welcome back!”

Sydney will play the winner of the next match, between Melbourne Victory and Melbourne City.

And two of Australia’s best horses will go head to head at Saturday’s three million dollar Cox Plate.

Winx and Hartnell are the favourites.

Winx… racing to win her thirteenth consecutive race.

It’s upped the pressure on the champion mare.

Chris Waller, Trainer: “I feel the public expectation on her is like no other horse I’ve ever trained. So that’s been a learning curve.”

The race is a key pointer to favouritism in the Melbourne Cup.
