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

Scone Thoroughbred Bet (4:50pm AEST)

Bold Chance (Race 7, No.1) steps up in grade today, but commands plenty of respect out of the in-form Kris Lees yard.

He’s won two in a row at Taree and looks well placed here out of barrier 4.

Jockey Andrew Gibbons sticks with this five-year-old gelding and The Wolf is sticking with him also.

Confidence Level:

Recommended Price: $3.70 

MLB: Chicago Cubs @ San Francisco Giants (Tuesday 12:08pm AEST)

The Cubs take on the Giants in the ESPN game on Tuesday afternoon and the Cubs have the advantage on the mound.

They’ll send Jake Arrieta to the mound and the Cubs are 3-0 in his last three away starts.

He’s also dominated the Giants in his last two starts at San Francisco.

In 2016, he pitched 7 innings and only allowed 4 hits.

Overall in his last five career starts against the Giants, he owns a 1.93 ERA.

For the Giants, Matt Moore has a 2-7 record at home this season with a 4.59 ERA. T

The Giants are just 3-7 in his last 10 starts as well.

He has conceded a home run in five straight starts and has allowed 4 runs in two straight starts at home.

The Wolf says back the Cubs to cover the -1.5 handicap.

Confidence Level:

Recommended Price: $1.87 

 

Horsham Greyhound Bet (5:40pm AEST)

Rockin’ Rico (Race 8, No.2) looks well place here after tackling Group 2 company last start.

He won in good fashion at Shepparton two starts back and should be right in the mix jumping out of Box 2 here.

Should be too classy here and The Wolf is expecting him to return to the winner’s circle.

Confidence Level: 

Recommended Price: $2.80 

 

Menangle Harness Bet (4:23pm AEST)

Celestial Arden (Race 6, No.3) drops in grade on his last start placing and looks like he should be too good for this field based on times.

Last start was a strange race with the back markers making their runs at the 600 metre mark and he only got tired late.

Today he should be no worse than midfield and on what he showed us before his last start he should get over the top of this field with his fast finish.

Confidence Level: 

Recommended Price: $3
