Racing and Sports Tips – 5/12/17
Here are The Wolf’s best racing and sports tips!
The Wolf’s best bet had excuses last start and can make amends at Taree today.
Taree Thoroughbred Bet (3:40pm AEDT)
(Race 4, No.6) Natural Image was well backed and could easily have won with a better ride last start – the change to a senior rider today should see her get the cash here.
Trained on the track by top local conditioner Ross Stitt, she has been highly consistent throughout her career with two seconds and two fourths from five starts.
This race looks highly suitable and Scott Thurlow should give her every favour in the run from the good draw.
Confidence Level: Recommended Price: $3.90
Wangaratta Thoroughbred Bet (2:30pm AEDT)
(Race 3, No.4) comes out of a terrific form race at Pakenham last start and gets conditions to suit at Wangaratta today. Lu Bu
Coming from the strong Mick Price stable, the More Than Ready colt ran a strong third behind stablemate Kasi Farasi first up, and the form was confirmed when the winner performed well at Sandown last Saturday.
Lu Bu should get every chance with Mick Dee riding from barrier three and he should go on to better races than this in time.
Confidence Level: Recommended Price: $4
NFL: Pittsburgh @ Cincinnati (12:30pm AEDT)
The Steelers were slow out of the blocks against the Packers and won’t make the same mistake against their bitter rivals here.
The Steelers have won five straight against the Bengals, including a 29-14 win at Pittsburgh earlier in the season.
Running back Le’Veon Bell had 35 carries for 134 yards and it’s impossible to see how the Bengals will stop him this time around.
The Steelers are 14-2-2 ATS in their last 18 meetings in Cincinnati.
The scare against the Packers was the wake-up call they needed and they’ll have too much fire power for the Bengals for a second time this season.
The Wolf says to take the
. Steelers to cover the -5

Geelong Greyhound Bet (6:21pm AEDT)
(Race 11, No.4) has a win at the track/distance and looks to have the class edge here. Winlock Rose
She’ll be able to ping the lids and avoid any trouble out of Box 4.
Look for her to take up the running and prove hard to reel in.
Confidence Level: Recommended Price: $2.60
