Racing and Sports Tips – 23/08/16
Here are The Wolf’s best racing and sports tips!
Gosford Thoroughbred Bet (3:40pm AEST)
California Elite (Race 6, No.3) had nothing go his way on debut last start.
This $500,000 colt has been carefully protected by the Snowden camp and after 4 trials he finally had his debut.
Everything went wrong – he was hampered at the start and after being posted wide overraced on a heavy track.
Despite all that work he boxed on to hold on for a place. Will strip fitter second up and on better ground will put his best foot forward.
Recommended Price: $3.50
Albion Park Harness Bet (4:12pm AEST)
Despite stepping up in class today Gasmonkey (Race 4, No.2) has the right draw to go all the way.
He has been in brilliant form winning his last two races from outside the leader and today from barrier two the Wolf expects him to be leading and winning.
On recent form he should be terribly hard to get past.
Recommended Price: $2.50
Gawler Greyhound Bet (1:54pm AEST)
Emerley Cosmic (Race 6, No.3) was a comfortable winner on debut and The Wolf thinks he can back it up with another win.
Handled the squeeze box and showed great early speed. Up against more experienced opponents on this occasion but on time alone will be able to mix it with this lot.
The Wolf has him edging out Rockstar Swirl.
Recommended Price: $4.00
MLB: Cleveland at Oakland (12:05pm AEST)
Cleveland just finished an 11 game homestand with an excellent 8-3 record and now hit the road for seven games with the first stop being Oakland.
The Wolf says to ride the wave with them and says to back a Cleveland WIN.
The Indians now hold a seven game lead over the Detroit Tigers in the AL Central race but still trail the Texans for the best record in the AL by 1 ½ games.
Meanwhile Oakland lost their seventh game in eight games after going down 4-2 to the White Sox.
It’s been widely reported there is some restlessness in the clubhouse so this one will be interesting to see how it plays out.
On paper the pitching matchup is lopsided as we have Carlos Carrasco (8-6, 3.34 ERA) facing off against Andrew Triggs (0-1, 4.98 ERA).
Tipping the Indians to dominate the A’s here.
Recommended Price: $1.65
