PBR Toowoomba Invitational Tips & Preview

The PBR arrives in Toowoomba for two adrenaline-packed events on Saturday, and Neds is your one-stop shop for everything Bull Riding!

Lachlan Richardson has returned to action in outstanding form, and he recorded another impressive win in Event 2 at Beaudesert. The world number 30 looks the rider to beat again in Toowoomba.

If you can’t make it to either event, don’t forget that you can stream all of the Australian and US PBR action live and free on the Neds App!

Event 1
Lane Mellers vs Mighty Whitey
Bull in 5-5.99 Seconds ($10)

Lane Mellers has been riding well since the PBR returned and while he faces a big task in defeating Mighty Whitey, I think that he can stay aboard for nearly the whole ride.

Mellers won the first event at Mackay last month, and while he did have a couple of duck eggs in Rockhampton, he arrives in Toowoomba off the back of an eye-catching second in Event 2 at Beaudesert.

Mighty White has been excellent this season, competing at six events since the PBR returns and unseating the rider at each appearance.

Mellers is probably the best cowboys that he has drawn, so I’m going to roll the dice on a ride duration of 5-5.99 seconds, for a big price.

Jake Curr vs Iron Jacket
Curr to Win ($1.95)

Young gun Jake Curr recorded his the first PBR event win of his career at Beaudesert, and this looks the perfect opportunity for him to go on with the job.

Curr is clearly a star on the rise, and he has continued to improve with each event and ride since the return from the COVID break; podiuming at both Bundaberg and Mackay before last week’s impressive win in Event 1.

He climbs aboard Iron Jacket in Event 1 at Toowoomba, who has failed to unseat the rider at his last two PBR events.

Aaron Kleier vs Mickey Mouse
Kleier to Win ($2.20)

Aaron Kleier has been a model of consistency this season and strikes another winnable contest in Event 1 at Toowoomba.

Having won Event 2 at Bundaberg to open his account early last month, the twenty-two-year-old Clermont local has continued to produce quality performances aboard good opponents, and added another win in the first event at Rockhampton a couple of weeks ago to his CV.

Mickey Mouse has made three appearances at the PBR to date, comfortably winning his first two matches, but losing to Ben Gard in Rockhampton most recently.

The $2.20 available for Kleier to win (at publish) looks a touch of overs.

Lachlan Richardson vs Zoo Animal
Richardson to Win ($3.10)

Lachlan Richardson is quite clearly in the best form of any rider in PBR Australia currently, and I am going to continue backing him until he gives me a reason not to.

Richardson returned plenty of big efforts and results in the United States last year, and he’s made his home tour his own this time, winning two events and finishing second a further four times.

He was at his brilliant best in Event 2 at Beaudesert, and while Zoo Animal does represent a legitimately tough opponent, the $3.10 available for Richardson to win (at publish) is too good to refuse.

Event 1 Multi: Super Natural, Super Hornett, Let’s Rock, Roger Rabit All to Win
$2.68

As always, our suggested multi for Event 1 in Toowoomba bands together four bulls to win their respective matches, for a better price.

All of Super Natural, Super Hornett, Let’s Rock and Roger Rabit are clear favourites to win in Event 1, with Let’s Rock adding the most value to our multi at $1.45.

Event 2 
Jake Curr vs Tezzas Pride
Bull in 6-6.99 Seconds ($14)

Jake Curr will climb aboard Tezzas Pride in Event 2 at Toowoomba, and there’s no doubt that it’s a tougher match than the one he has in Event 1.

Curr has continued to improve all season and was terrific in Beaudesert, and he climbs aboard a bull who made his debut at the same event; comfortably defeating both Michael Smith and Lawson Nobbs.

I think that Curr can hold on for part of this, so I’m going to have a roll of the dice on a later time band.

Aaron Kleier vs Django
Kleier to Win ($2.75)

Aaron Kleier has been excellent since we returned from the COVID break and, like I did in Event 1, I’m going to back him to win this match in Event 2 against Django.

Django returned to action at Mackay, facing Brody Woodard in Event 1 and winning in a time of 4.15 seconds.

Kleier is one of the more consistent performers on the PBR Australia tour, and the $2.20 available for him to win this match at publish looks a nice price.

Lachlan Richardson vs Scene Of The Crash
Richardson to Win ($2.75)

If you’ve followed my PBR Australia blogs, or even just the Event 1 tips above, you that I have a large respect for Lachlan Richardson, and I am happy to take the value around in in each and every one of his matches.

In Event 2 at Toowoomba, he climbs aboard Scene Of The Crash, who lost to Eli Bee in Event 2 at Bundaberg; his most recent PBR appearance.

Event 2 Multi: Dirty Harry, Pretty Boy, Suga Boom Boom, Freckles Brown All to Win
$2.89

Another PBR event, another four-leg multi combining bulls that are clear favourites to win their respective matches.

This time, I’m including Dirty Harry, Pretty Boy, Suga Boom Boom and Freckles Brown, with Pretty Boy adding the greatest value at $1.45.
