Wolf’s Best Bet
Albion Park Race 1, No 8 Uncle Lile
He’ll get the perfect run in this race on the leader’s back and he will have every chance to pounce on the sprint lane. He has drawn on the backrow three of his past four starts but tonight he maps to win.
Menangle Race 3, No 1 Our White Knight
Another that maps perfectly. He should tuck in behind the leader all the way. The Wolf says he just needs a gap at the top of the straight and he can run over the top of the front runners. The stable is in very good form at the moment.
Albion Park Race 3, No.7 Double Event
He was a good winner midweek beating a solid field when driven aggressively and The Wolf expects them to adopt the same tactics again tonight. The Wolf notes that he raced against much better opposition at Menangle when in New South Wales and should win plenty of races in Queensland.
Albion Park Race 6, No 1 Purple Royale
This mare is airborne at this moment in time and tonight from the pole she will likely take cover and have the sprint lane to zap them in the home straight. The Wolf thinks she is one of the fastest mares in the state.
Albion Park Race 2, No.5 Chattanoogachoochoo
He is a pacer that always needs luck in his races but tonight The Wolf is hoping that he can slot into a nice position midfield and with the right cart into the race he can figure in a race like this.
Wolf’s Back Breaker
Bendigo Race 1, No. 4 Heavens Trend
She is a star filly but tonight The Wolf thinks she might be forced to sit parked outside the leader and that could bring her undone. My Mackenzie is a good leader and The Wolf is confident Mark Purdon is going to want to hold the lead and make a statement.

Feature Race Betting
Breeders Crown Graduate Mares Free for All (Bendigo)
This is a terribly hard race on paper. So hard that The Wolf concedes every horse in this field can win but the hardest to beat looks to be Cyclone Kate, even though she has drawn the backrow. She ran an encouraging third in the Queen Of The Pacific and has since won at Menangle in fast time. Miss Riviera Belle has a great draw for her in the pole and she will do no work in the run. Whereibylong has drawn the backrow but she was a brilliant winner first-up and can only be improved. Ameretto and Lovelist are also in fine form and can easily win this race.
GROUP 3 Harrington Park Netball Baby Bling Stakes (Menangle)
The fancied runners have all drawn wide but they are the class runners. The Wolf thinks Millwood Liberty will be the hardest to beat. She has been in great form and has been matching it with the males in free for all races. Joys A Babe has also been running great races outside of mares grade and she is always thereabouts. Katy Perry was a good winner last start when coming from well back. Modern Dancer and Helens Bonus are handy sit sprinters who can unleash if the favourites go to war midrace.
