Racing and Sports Tips – 8/2/18
Here are The Wolf’s best racing and sports tips!
The Wolf’s best bet resumes at Pakenham tonight and looks to have a clear class edge on his rivals.
Pakenham Thoroughbred Bet (8:30pm)
(Race 6, No.6) has come up against some much tougher opponents than what he meets here and The Wolf is keen to be on him. Rellson
Last start he finished fourth in the Group 3 Carbine Club Stakes behind Levendi, which is a far superior form line that any of the challengers come through.
Mark Zahra takes the reins again here and The Wolf is expecting his class to rise to the top and win here.
Ararat Thoroughbred Bet (3:30pm)
(Race 6, No.6) won well two starts ago at Mornington and if she brings her best form here she’ll take beating. Swiss Beauty
She’s twice a winner over 1200m and with John Allen taking the reins The Wolf is full of confidence.
Expect him to settle her midfield with cover before peeling out in the straight to give chase.
FA Cup: Tottenham v Newport County (6:45am AEDT)
League Two side Newport County almost pulled off the fairy tale win over Tottenham in their recent FA Cup tie, before a late goal by Harry Kane set up a replay at Wembley.
The Wolf is expecting Spurs to be completely focused on their North London Derby against Arsenal on the weekend, and will name an understrength side here.
Tottenham are unbeaten in their last 11 home games, with nine wins and two draws, and have conceded just six goals over that period.
Spurs will get the victory and progress to the next round of the FA Cup, but it’s hard to see them putting Newport County to the sword, with their focus not solely on this fixture.
The Wolf is happy to take the value about
in the hope that Spurs take their foot off the pedal. Under 3.5 goals
Confidence Level: Recommended Price: $2
Sandown Park Greyhound Bet (8:07pm AEDT)
(Race 4, No.2) was extremely impressive in winning her heat here by 3.5 lengths. Go Seek Heidi
She loves an inside draw, with four of her five career wins coming from either Box 1 or Box 2.
Great record at the track/distance (12:4-3-3) and only has to ping the lids to be a major player again tonight.
