Racing and Sports Tips – 21/2/18

bet on racing and sports

Here are The Wolf’s best racing and sports tips!

The Wolf’s best bet is aiming for her third win from three starts over 1100m at Canterbury.

Canterbury Thoroughbred Bet (5:20pm)

Miss Que (Race 8, No.6) is looking for her third win over this course and distance and The Wolf is confident she will get it.

She stepped out well last start to settle near the rear before powering down the outside of the field to win.

She put in an eye-catching performance that day and The Wolf is expecting a more dominant display here being second up.

Corey Brown has won on her both times which adds confidence and with enough speed on up front he expects her to be winning.

Confidence Level:

Recommended Price: $4 


Canterbury Thoroughbred Bet (1:35pm)

Ridicule (Race 6, No.2) placed at Randwick behind Swaffham Bulbeck first up and if she’s improved off that run for this The Wolf is expecting her to win.

She’s drawn well in barrier 1 and with the inside draw The Wolf is expecting a change of tactics with her flying through to lead.

This may or may not be the case, but he expects against the small for her to get all the favours in the run prove very hard to beat.

Recommended Price: $2.25


T20 Tri-Series Final: New Zealand v Australia (5pm AEDT)

New Zealand and Australia will meet in the final of the tri-series after the Black Caps secured their spot over England due to a superior net run-rate.

All of the talk leading into Wednesday’s final, is about the amazing T20 match played between these sides at Eden Park last Friday.

The record books were obliterated as Australia (5/245) chased down New Zealand’s mammoth total of 6/243.

It was the highest successful run-chase in the history of T20 cricket, and New Zealand’s score of 243 was the highest score Australia have conceded in T20 cricket.

New Zealand have now lost their last four T20I matches at Eden Park, and six of their last eight T20I matches at the venue.

New Zealand’s fortunes in the final rest on the shoulders of their opening batsmen – Martin Guptill and Colin Munro.

Guptill has 237 runs at an average of 59.25 and is the top run-scorer in the tri-series, while Colin Munro is back in 4th with 147 runs at an explosive strike-rate of 210.

The Wolf thinks Australia has the clear edge in the batting ranks when the likes of Marcus Stoinis and Alex Carey are coming in at No.6 and No.7 respectively.

David Warner returned to form in the recent T20I win over the Black Caps as he smashed 59 off 24 balls, and his 121-run opening partnership was the catalyst for Australia’s unlikely victory.

The Wolf also agrees with Chris Lynn that New Zealand could be deflated after the loss on Friday night, while the Black Caps recent record at Eden Park in T20I international cricket speaks for itself.

The Meadows Greyhound Bet (3:22pm AEDT)

Dyna Yami (Race 11, No.2) got smashed at the first turn at Sandown Park last start and will be better suited by Box 2 today.

She has a great record over this track/distance (5:2-2-0) and can make amends for some of her luckless runs recently.

Loves a rails draw and can bounce back on her favourite track.
