On this week's Punter's Platform we're getting tips for the weekend GAA action, the Lions chances v NZ, as well as racing and soccer bets.

Clare All Ireland winner, Jamesie O'Connor, joins this week's Punter's Platform of Johnny Ward, Will Slattery, Niall Cronin and Ladbrokes' Shane Mahon to preview the Munster hurling final and he gives Clare the odds to become Munster champions again.

Plus, can Kilkenny prove everyone wrong this season with a win over Waterford and set their season on track again?

The panel also looks ahead to the football qualifiers, the Eclipse in horse racing and most importantly, just who will take over from Vincent Browne on his TV3 show?

The Punter's Platform Bets of the Week are:

- Niall Cronin is going for Eminent in the Eclipse and is putting €2 on the following 2,000-1 accumulator: Mayo to win by 10-12 points, Monaghan to win by 4-6 points, Sean Armstrong to score a goal, and Carlow to win with a draw at half time

- Will Slattery reckons Clare to beat Mayo at 4-1 is good value

- Shane Mahon is going for an 11-4 treble of NZ -6, Kilkenny to beat Waterford, Carlow to win

- And Johnny Ward fancies Dundalk to qualify over Rosenborg

The Punter's Platform is in association with Ladbrokes and please gamble responsibly.
