Trainer and former Kildare midfielder, Willie McCreery, joins this week's Punter's Platform as they look ahead to the weekend GAA football action.

On the panel with Johnny Ward is the Herald's Niall Cronin, the Irish Independent's Donnchadh Boyle and Declan Marron from Ladbrokes who are asking if there is any value in the Leinster or Ulster football finals or if the qualifiers are better bets.

Can Tipperary continue their good form against Armagh in Thurles and will Carlow's run in the qualifiers continue over Monaghan?

Plus, in horse racing, there's the Irish Oaks and July Cup to look forward to, while Johnny Ward has some decent bets on the League of Ireland teams in Europe.

The Punter's Platform Bets of the Week are:

- Niall Cronin is going for a racing double of Enable and Caravaggio and in the Leinster final he reckons a draw at half-time and Dublin to win at full-time

- Declan Marron fancies Harry Angel in the July Cup

- Donnchadh Boyle's GAA double is Monaghan -9 v Carlow and Armagh to beat Tipp

- Johnny Ward is going for Monaghan in the handicap and Seapoint who is running in Killarney

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