Royal Navy (Race 1, No.3) is banging down the door to win a maiden.
This three-year-old Fastnet Rock colt is in one of the most astute yards in the country and as The Wolf has come to expect from the Snowdens, he has been perfectly placed here over the mile. His last start third behind promising filly Sezanne was fantastic as he was shuffled back at a critical stage. There’s a case to be made that he should have won.
Kerrin McEvoy maintains the ride and he’ll be very keen to avoid making the same mistake twice.
MLB: Detroit Tigers v Minnesota Twins (10:12am AEST)
The Wolf has a feeling the Twins bats will wake up in this one and squeeze by the 4.5 run total that’s on offer.
Picking a winner here won’t be easy as both sides are struggling but there is some trends on both sides that point to an overs bet. It is 5-1-1 in Sanchez’s last 7 road starts and 4-1-2 in his last 7 road starts vs teams with losing records.
On the other side, Minnesota over is 5-1 in their last 6 home games vs RH starters and 4-0 in Gibson’s last 4 starts overall.
