Canterbury horse racing tips
Race 1. (18:15) Mirvac Residential Maiden (1250m)
#5 – Untamed – Bet Now
Untamed is on debut for Peter and Paul Snowden after winning a trial on this track.
That win came over a nice type in Dance and the two-year-old son of Pierro looks a nice type in the making.
He’s bred to be pretty good and betting on race night will be a telling story.
Race 2. (18:45) The Agency Real Estate Maiden (1250m)
#4 – Pragmatism – Bet Now
Tim Martin lines up the four-year-old mare that has been patiently handled to date and that could pay off here.
The daughter of Stratum finished third on debut behind Rover and that looks a good form guide for a race like this.
That debut performance followed two trial wins at Rosehill and we’re confident she can get a good run in transit and go close.
Race 3. (19:15) Canterbury League Club Maiden (1250m)
#6 – La Tigresa – Bet Now
La Tigresa ran well enough on debut at Newcastle to be considered a winning chance.
The Freedman-trained three-year-old finished 2.5 lengths behind Bound To Win after settling too far back in the run.
That placing came after a trial win at Hawkesbury and she clearly has ability, which should be on show from barrier three.
Punters should be able to get each-way odds come race day.
Race 4. (19:45) TAB Maiden Plate (1100m)
#7 – Deep Crystal – Bet Now
Matthew Smith trains the three-year-old filly that comes into this with consecutive trial wins.
The daughter of Deep Field scored by a nose at Gosford before repeating the dose by a half-length at Hawkesbury.
They run well for this ownership group and with only 55kg on her back from barrier three, she should be fighting out the finish.
Race 5. (20:15) Kia Evening Star BM74 (1250m)
#4 – Night of Power – Bet Now
Night of Power has run well fresh up in the past and with Hugh Bowman in the saddle, he could offer punters with some value.
The Bjorn Baker-trained five-year-old is an imported son of Masterofthehorse and his recent trial form bodes well for a top Australian debut.
His best form came over 2000m+ in Europe but he’s a classy type which has the ability to sprint and beat this field.
Race 6. (20:45) Iron Jack BM70 (1900m)
#7 – Elleofadeel – Bet Now
Elleofadeel went close at Sunshine Coast on Boxing Day and we’re expecting a similar effort in this.
Trained by Chris Waller, the four-year-old mare by Dundeel is a two-time winner from 10 starts that also has five minor placings.
Her turn-of-foot was impressive last start and if she can replicate that effort, she’ll go close to beating this field.
James McDonald returns back from New Zealand to ride.
Race 7. (21:15) Mirvac BM72 (1550m)
#10 – Kimpembe – Bet Now
Chris Waller trains the three-year-old by Savabeel that is coming off a tidy win at Wyong.
He scored by 1.3 lengths and he turned around some fairly average form to kick off his career.
It was an encouraging win for the future of this well-bred type and he gets some positives in his favour here.
He gets the inside draw and runs with only 54kg on his back. Tough to beat from there.
Race 8. (21:45) Bowermans Furniture BM72 (1100m)
#1 – All Cylinders – Bet Now
We are loving the form turnaround from All Cylinders, which has won his last two starts.
The three-year-old has now won three from nine starts and his win last start at Moonee Valley was impressive.
That came on November 15, so he has had time between runs but he has been primed with a trial win at Hawkesbury.
Cejay Graham takes some weight off the 60kg and that should see him fighting out the finish.
