Canterbury horse racing tips & form
Race 1. (12:50) First Justify Yearlings Maiden (1200m)
#6 – Sweet Baby Boom @ $2.40 – Bet @ PlayUp
Sweet Baby Boom didn’t fire in the extremely heavy conditions last start but we’re prepared to give her another chance.
The two-year-old filly was well-backed to score and she has been backed again, so she’s worth following against this level of opposition.
Punters should expect her to push forward and to try lead throughout.
Race 2. (13:25) Hellbent @ Yarraman Park Maiden (1200m)
#9 – Resonator @ $7 – Bet @ PlayUp
Punters get value odds with Resonator, who was 4.6 lengths behind Sejardan on debut at Randwick.
The Waterhouse/Bott-trained two-year-old has since placed in consecutive trials and dropping in class could see his form improve.
We thought he would be shorter in betting markets, but take the $7 before a possible race day plunge.
Race 3. (14:00) Castelvecchio @ Arrowfield Maiden (1550m)
#1 – Stormy Legend @ $4.20 – Bet @ PlayUp
Stormy Legend is looking to cap off four consecutive second placings and he should go close again.
The four-year-old son of Not a Single Doubt comes off a heavy-track placing at Canterbury and he hit the line nicely enough to warrant attention.
Punters get each-way odds to snap up.
Race 4. (14:35) Bowermans BM64 (1550m)
#6 – Smirk @ $2.80 – Bet @ PlayUp
Smirk hit the line nicely last time out when running second at Newcastle, so we’re not surprised by the betting support.
The three-year-old filly paid $12 last time out and she has much more support this time around, so the Chris Waller-trained filly has her supporters.
Having James McDonald in the saddle helps and it could be enough to get her over the line.
Race 5. (15:10) Vinery Yearlings BM64 (1550m)
#2 – This’llbetheone @ $4.20 – Bet @ PlayUp
This’llbetheone won his first two starts at Kembla Grange and Hawkesbury before running fourth at Hawkesbury last start.
The three-year-old son of Exceed and Excel will be fitter for the run and we thought he would be shorter in betting markets.
Getting early luck from barrier nine is key, but put him on top.
Race 6. (15:45) Tab BM72 (1900m)
#9 – Hameron @ $2.90 – Bet @ PlayUp
Hameron comes from Victoria with good form, including a debut win at Ballarat by 2.3 lengths.
The four-year-old son of Night of Thunder then finished second behind Detonator Jack at Sandown, which has since won its third race.
McDonald rides and he has been backed from opening quote of $3.60, so the betting support is coming and the $2.90 could shorten.
Race 7. (16:20) Palace Pier New @ Darley BM64 (1100m)
#2 – Broken Hill @ $4.80 – Bet @ PlayUp
Broken Hill didn’t fire at Gosford last start but we’re prepared to give the three-year-old colt another chance.
The son of Lonhro won at Canterbury by 1.5 lengths prior to that and anything close to that effort would be good enough.
He has been specked at each-way odds and that’s a good sign.
Race 8. (16:55) Cellarbrations BM72 (1250m)
#3 – The Art of Flying @ $4.80 – Bet @ PlayUp
The Art of Flying is a smart type in the making and that was evident when winning by 2.3 lengths at Canterbury.
He handled the heavy track with ease and although he’s facing a steep rise in class, his placing behind Overpass suggests he can handle it.
He could mature into a smart type and we’re happy with the each-way odds.
