Canterbury free tips & form
Race 1. (13:25) Headwater @ Vinery Maiden (1200m)
#3 – Yao Dash @ $2.60 – Bet Now
Yao Dash hasn’t found the easiest field for his debut but he looks to have a good amount of ability.
The Waterhouse/Bott-trained three-year-old scored a good trial win at Randwick before running second behind Athiri last month.
Has attracted early attention in the betting.
Race 2. (14:00) Everest Carnival Maiden (1200m)
#2 – Crystal Falls @ $4.20 – Bet Now
Crystal Falls has form around some slick types, including the likes of Kiamichi, Microphone and Castelvecchio.
That form stacks up beautifully for midweek racing and although this is one of the hottest maiden fields we’ve seen, she can handle it.
She likes to get back during the run and storm home, so longer distances might be best, but respect her talents over 1200m.
Race 3. (14:35) Kermadec @ Darley BM72 (1550m)
#4 – Flying Pierro @ $4.60 – Bet Now
That was a nice run from Flying Pierro at Randwick last start and he was hitting the line with good authority.
Trained by Chris Waller, the four-year-old was a winner in rating 64 grade four back and has been right around the money since.
Seeing Hugh Bowman in the saddle is a positive and it looks the stronger runner from the Waller stable.
Race 4. (15:10) ANZ Bloodstock News BM70 (1200m)
#11 – Subpoenaed @ $2.25 – Bet Now
Chris Waller lines up the talented former Kiwi which scored a win at Te Rapa in April. She has since had a trial where she placed at Rosehill.
The form out of her maiden win has stacked up nicely and the fact she was purchased straight after the win is a good sign.
James McDonald rides and we’re expecting big bets to come, so take the $2.25 on offer before she drops to an odds-on quote.
Race 5. (15:45) TAB BM72 (1100m)
#12 – Camp Rifle @ $5 – Bet Now
It pays to follow the James Cummings stable when they’re in form, which includes Camp Rifle.
The three-year-old gelding scored a one-length win at Kembla Grange to kick off his career and that came after some solid trial form.
This is much harder being a solid midweek field, but he gets in light with only 53kg and Rachel King has been riding well of late.
$5 is good money and those odds should drop.
Race 6. (16:20) Australian Turf Club BM72 (1250m)
#5 – Rock @ $2.25 – Bet Now
Rock has been a little enigmatic for punters to date, but he owns good potential and should be fighting out the finish.
The Hawkes-trained four-year-old has won once from five starts, but also owns three second placings.
His worst run came last start in March when running eighth at Rosehill but that came behind Verry Elleegant and he’s simply not up to that grade.
Better suited here and he’s worth sticking with.
Race 7. (16:55) Canterbury League Club BM72 (1900m)
#9 – Semper Fidelis – Bet Now
Punters will need to take Semper Fidelis on trust but she could run at value odds in the last race of the day.
The Waller-trained five-year-old wasn’t far off the pace when fifth at Randwick last start and being by High Chaparral, she will see out the distance.
This isn’t the strongest field in the world and there’s no standout bets, which could play into the hands of the experienced mare.
