‘Saint’ Koblenz?

St Kilda fans won’t hesitate to ‘march in’ to a ‘saintly’ AFL/Greys offer from TAB tonight.

The betting giant’s cross-sports proposition is $2.50 for the Saints to defeat the Blues and excitement machine Koblenz claiming a G3 Warragul St Leger heat.

St Kilda is 12th on the AFL ladder with eight wins from 18 matches, while Carlton are 13th with seven wins.

Last week, the Saints lost to the West Coast Eagles by 8pts while the Blues lost to the Kangaroos by 39pts.

Meanwhile, ‘next big thing’ Koblenz dominates proceedings in a St Leger heat. He’s a short-priced $1.50F to win Heat 1 and is on the second line of betting at $3.50 for the $25,000 to-the-winner final on Saturday, August 7.

Trained by David Geall, Koblenz has won 16 races from 23 starts, including the Pink Diamond Rookie Sprinter final (500m) at Bendigo.

Koblenz – a ‘cousin’ of freakish Ferdinand Boy – has also won 15 of his past 19 starts, at one stage stringing together 11 straight wins!

The St Kilda v Carlton clash at Marvel Stadium commences at 7.50pm, while Koblenz is in Race 6 Box 6 at 8.52pm.

WATCH: Excitement machine Koblenz (3) semaphores a sizzling 29.83sec win at The Meadows on July 7.
