Wolf’s Racing Guide – Saturday, 16 June

We head to Moonee Valley & Rosehill this Saturday! Last Saturday’s Racing Guide found Rocket Tommy at $11! This week The Wolf is keen on New Universe, who placed second behind Sir Bacchus and off that run looks ready to win.

Wolf’s Best

New Universe (Rosehill Race 7, No. 7)

New Universe was narrowly defeated by Sir Bacchus last start over this course and distance and once again shapes as an excellent winning chance. He hasn’t got his nose in front for 200 days, but off his narrow defeat last start he only has to replicate that to be winning here. He’s placed twice over this course and distance and with Kerrin McEvoy engaged he looks very hard to beat.
Confidence Level:

Recommended Price: $4.20

Circuit Bets

Kings Brook (Moonee Valley Race 1, No. 1)

King’s Brook was extraordinary last start at Ballarat last start and if she can replicate that win here she’ll take catching. She exploded away to win under Luke Nolen by over two lengths and should have taken plenty of fitness from that run for this. She was well supported that day indicating to The Wolf that she has admirers and rightly so. She’ll measure up here and The Wolf is keen to be on her.
Confidence Level: 
Recommended Price: WIN

Rillito (Moonee Valley Race 6, No. 4)

Rillito hasn’t raced since the middle of last year but her two trials in Sydney have been very smart and should have her ready to win this. She looks to be a special talent on the rise and assuming she handles a heavy track she’ll go close to winning this. Craig Williams takes the reins and from the draw she is expected to settle midfield with cover.
Confidence Level:
Recommended Price: WIN

Tarcoola Spirit (Moonee Valley Race 7, No. 3)

Tarcoola Spirit loves it wet and The Wolf is confident that with enough rain she can make it 2/2 on the heavy ground. She placed behind Egyptian Bullet at Flemington last start and he is confident that this is going to be a strong form race moving forward. She gets the best in the business in Damien Oliver aboard and assuming she handles the tight-turning track this, The Valley – she’ll prove very hard to beat.
Confidence Level: 
Recommended Price: WIN 

Nictock (Rosehill Race 8, No. 3)

Nictock rises in grade for this but off his last start placing behind Top Striker he appears up to it. He’s 2/2 when performing second up and looks well placed here to extend that record to a perfect three. Jean Van Overmeire retains the ride from last start and if he guides him as well as he did that day he’ll take running down.
Confidence Level: 
Recommended Price: $10

Egyptian Bullet (Moonee Valley Race 10, No. 3)

Egyptian Bullet has won her last three on the trot and looks well placed to extend that record to four on end here. She’s turned into a revelation this prep and from the draw is expected to perform well again. The booking of Jamie Mott indicates to The Wolf that McArdle means business here and with luck she’ll go home the winner.
Confidence Level: 
Recommended Price: WIN


Tuscany Hero (Moonee Valley Race 3, No. 12)

Tuscany Hero is 2/2 on the heavy track and with the predicted rain fall on it’s way he comes right into this. He settled near the rear last start where he was badly held up, but he appeared to be bolting for a run throughout and deserves another chance off that. The predicted rainfall only enhances his chances and with Craig Robertson hopping back on The Wolf is confident that he is over the odds.
Confidence Level: 
Recommended Price: $31/$5.75

The Getaway (Rosehill Race 6, No. 10)

The Getaway is in career-best form at present and with only 54.5kg on his back he can make his presence felt in this. He won well two starts ago over this course and distance at any old price and if he replicates that run here he’ll take catching. He finished fourth last start over 2400m only beaten a length and should be much improved dropping back to 2000m. He’s over the odds and The Wolf is keen to be on him.
Confidence Level: 
Recommended Price: $15/$4
