Canterbury horse racing tips & form
Race 1. (14:20) Street Boss @ Darley Maiden (1250m)
#2 – Best Stone – Bet Now
We’re going to keep backing Best Stone until she breaks maiden grades, which shouldn’t be too much longer.
The John Thompson-trained three-year-old owns five placings from five starts, and she has fitness on her side for this run.
She also gets an inside barrier with Nash Rawiller doing the riding, so we’re confident of another tidy effort.
Punters should follow the form out of this quality maiden contest.
Race 2. (14:55) Headwater @ Vinery Maiden (1250m)
#2 – Sea of Life – Bet Now
Coming off a campaign with two starts for two placings, Sea of Life could find form quickly this season.
The three-year-old by Sebring ran second on debut at Warwick Farm behind Erno, before running third behind Group 1 winner Prince Fawaz last May.
It has been a long time between races but he has been primed with three trials. His latest came at Randwick where he ran second behind Mini Boom.
Watch the market for any late moves.
Race 3. (15:30) Vale Mr Bob Whyburn BM72 (1900m)
#1 – Kiss The Bride – Bet Now
Kiss The Bride didn’t handle the rise in class at Randwick last start but his form prior was top notch for this.
Trained by Bjorn Baker, the four-year-old scored consecutive wins at Kembla Grange and Gosford before running fourth last start.
Nash Rawiller rides off the inside draw, and the small field of six runners is going to increase his chances of winning significantly.
Race 4. (16:05) Ranvet BM74 (1200m)
#5 – The Man – Bet Now
Chris Waller trains The Man, which broke through for his maiden win on this track last start.
The five-year-old defeated Tawaret on the line, and it has since broken maiden grades as well, so the form stacks up.
He has taken some time to fully mature and it shapes up well for the rest of his career.
He’s helped by Chris Williams riding with a light weight on his back. That, along with a good barrier, should help his chances.
Race 5. (16:40) Sky racing Active BM70 (1550m)
#2 – Knowitall Jack – Bet Now
Knowitall Jack is typically a well-backed runner, and he should be right in the thick of the betting action again.
The Mark Newnham-trained four-year-old ran well enough when fourth last start to warrant attention for this race.
He has finished in the money in five of his eight starts, and from the inside draw, he should be tough to hold out.
Jockey James McDonald is in good form and that will shorten his odds.
Race 6. (17:15) Schweppes BM70 (1100m)
#7 – Coco Cuber – Bet Now
Coco Cuber was a beaten favourite at Warwick Farm last start, but he wasn’t all that far away.
The David Pfieffer-trained colt by Rubick hit the wall late in the run and that was down to running second up this campaign.
He looked much better winning at Gosford fresh up by 1.8 lengths. Punters should expect something similar to that run on Wednesday.
It’s another quality ride for Nash Rawiller, and he could have a big day.
Race 7. (17:50) Canterbury League Club BM70 (1250m)
#9 – Willowheart – Bet Now
This is a hot field to close the Canterbury card and Willowheart could be the best of them.
The Waller-trained filly scored at Randwick on debut in October, beating the well-performed Starla by just under a length.
Form out of that race has stacked up and she was since placed in a trial.
James McDonald rides from a good barrier and that could be enough to see her remaining unbeaten.
