Racing and Sports Tips – 14/7/18
Here are The Wolf’s best racing and sports tips!
The Wolf is sticking with the trusted combination of Weir and Yendall to get today’s best bet home at Caulfield.
Caulfield Thoroughbred Bet (1pm AEST)
(Race 3, No.14) has performed exceptionally since arriving in Australia from France and once again should prove very hard to beat. Mantastic
He’s 1/1 when racing third up and the key to his chances is that he drops 2.5kg off last start, which will be the lowest weight he has ever carried in a race.
The step up to 1700m suits from the mile, and with luck from the wide draw he should be getting the job done.
Confidence Level: Recommended Price: $2.65
Caulfield Thoroughbred Bet (4:10pm AEST)
(Race 8, No.9) should have bolted in last start and The Wolf is confident that he gets an excellent chance to atone for that performance here. Street Sheik
He was blocked for a run at crucial stages that day and wound up finishing second behind Al Passem.
Not much splits the pair again, but The Wolf has elected to side with Street Sheik; who with the wide draw is expected to settle near the rear of the field and fly home from out-wide on the track.
Confidence Level: Recommended Price: $4.20
Super Rugby: Waratahs v Brumbies (7:45pm AEST)
The Waratahs clinched the Australian Conference title last weekend by obliterating the Sunwolves 77-25.
The Brumbies, meanwhile, are clinging to the faintest of playoffs hopes despite a gut-wrenching five-point loss to the Chiefs last week that snapped their three-game revival.
The Brumbies require a bonus-point win here and for the Rebels and Sharks to both lose their games to sneak into eighth.
The Waratahs are 5-1 in their last six against the Brumbies, including a 24-17 victory in Canberra earlier this season.
The 13+ margin is 5-2 in the teams’ last seven encounters, but the Wolf is tipping a much closer affair – particularly with the Brumbies turning a corner in recent weeks.
Best Bet – Brumbies +7.5
Confidence Level: Recommended Price: $1.90
The Meadows Greyhound Bet (9:05pm AEST)
(Race 6, No.5) has a sensational record at the track/distance (7:5-1-0) and commands plenty of respect tonight. Percy’s Empire
He’ll just need early luck out of Box 5 to feature, but will go very close if he can avoid a check at the first turn.
Hasten Slowly is very smart, but Percy goes into another gear here.
Confidence Level: Recommended Price: $3.90
