Canterbury horse racing tips & form
Race 1. (12:50) Sky Racing Active Maiden (1100m)
#2 – Beyliks – Bet Now
Beyliks has had his chance to score a maiden win but we are sticking with him. The James Cummings-trained colt finished a nose behind Smart Image last start and he shouldn’t have lost admirers on that effort.
It was his third placing from five starts and although backed and beaten to date, he is a son of Lonhro that should be winning shortly.
Look for a betting push on race day.
Race 2. (13:25) Yes Yes Yes @ Coolmore Maiden (1100m)
#8 – Redoute’s Image – Bet Now
Kris Lees has been training terrifically this season and he could get Redoute’s Image to score.
The two-year-old filly placed behind the likes of Kisukano and Tilia Rose earlier this season, which is top form for this race.
Her trial form has been impressive heading into this race and punters should be able to get each-way odds for Redoute’s Image.
Race 3. (14:00) Bowermans Furniture BM74 (1550m)
#5 – Judge Judi – Bet Now
It is only a matter of time before Judge Judi gets back to winning form and we’re keeping the faith.
The Kim Waugh-trained mare is a four-time winner but she is coming off a last-place finish at Warwick Farm. However, her best form comes at Canterbury with six starts for a win and five placings.
Her form needs to turn around soon and punters could get each-way odds this Wednesday.
Race 4. (14:35) Tab BM74 (1900m)
#10 – Maui Girl – Bet Now
Jason Coyle lines up the talented mare that could get back to her best form. She scored back-to-back wins earlier this year and her recent efforts aren’t an accurate reflection of her ability.
The daughter of Lope de Vega is a fit runner after having six runs already this preparation. That should see her fighting out the finish and this race is there for the taking.
Tommy Berry rides and he should find a good spot from barrier six.
Race 5. (15:10) Harry Angel @ Darley BM74 (1200m)
#11 – Best Stone – Bet Now
Best Stone was scratched from a harder race last Saturday and she is a filly on the rise. The John Thompson-trained filly owns two wins and five placings from just eight starts.
She is coming off a fifth behind Tailleur and she will be better for that run under her belt. The three-year-old has scored two wins at Canterbury and another tidy performance is expected.
Look for a market push and we are expecting her to be firm in the betting.
Race 6. (15:45) Press Statement @ Vinery BM70 (1100m)
#1 – Knickpoint – Bet Now
Knickpoint has drawn wide in barrier 17 but he has the class to overcome this field. The three-year-old gelding owns three wins from seven starts and those have come in harder company.
He ran behind Indy Car last start and his recent trial performance at Warwick Farm was a good hit out for this race.
His only start at Canterbury resulted in a win and with Nash Rawiller in the saddle, punters should expect a nice effort.
Race 7. (16:20) 2020 Yulong Stallions BM70 (1550m)
#11 – This Is So – Bet Now
This Is So showed good form last preparation and he wasn’t too far away when fourth at Randwick last time out.
The Anthony Cummings-trained five-year-old secures the inside draw and he scored at his only attempt at this distance.
It isn’t an easy field but punters should be getting each-way odds for this runner.
