Canterbury free tips & form
Race 1. (12:50) Australian Turf Club BM70 (1100m)
#4 – Brazilica – Bet Now
Brazilica showed her quality when winning on debut at Rosehill and although beaten last start, she wasn’t too far behind.
The well-bred daughter of Redoute’s Choice x. Brazilian Pulse has had a trial at Rosehill to prepare for this and the small field of only seven runners is going to help.
She’s a nice type for the future and bookmakers should have her safe in the market.
Race 2. (13:25) Press Statement @ Vinery Maiden (1200m)
#7 – Mandela – Bet Now
Mandela is on debut for Peter and Paul Snowden after showing some pace at the trials.
The colt by Sebring has recorded two trials wins and two trial placings. That form should be good enough for this, despite there being some nice trial form with the other runners.
He gets the inside draw and Tommy Berry takes the ride.
Race 3. (14:00) ANZ Bloodstock News Maiden (1200m)
#12 – Shuhood – Bet Now
The Waterhouse/Bott team always have them ready to fire on debut and Shuhood has been educated with three trials.
She’s a two-year-old filly by I Am Invincible which comes into this having scored a trial win at Warwick Farm. That was her second trial win and she has been around some nice types in those six trials.
Betting should give punters the best guide for this runner.
Race 4. (14:35) TAB BM66 (1250m)
#3 – Haut Brion Her – Bet Now
Chris Waller lines up the talented three-year-old filly which comes into this with a trial win at Rosehill on a heavy track.
Her race day form includes a debut second placing at Randwick before scoring a win at Warwick Farm by a half-length. That win came over a nice type and despite having 60.5kg on her back, she’s capable of carrying it.
She’s not weighted too poorly given the weight scale of this field.
Race 5. (15:10) Ranvet Power Formula BM70 (1250m)
#2 – Embracer – Bet Now
Embracer scored a quality win at Canterbury last start and he pulled away with a 2.3-length margin.
The Waterhouse/Bott-trained colt has now finished in the money in all five career starts and although he disappointed punters two back, he more than made up for it last start.
He loves to sit on the pace and give a good kick in the straight. Those tactics should work here and he could win again.
Race 6. (15:45) Frosted @ Darley BM74 (1900m)
#16 – Milunka – Bet Now
That was a perplexing run from Milunka last start but she didn’t have that much luck in running.
The Waller-trained three-year-old was impressive her start prior when scoring by a length at Canterbury and a similar effort would take her close here.
Getting down in the weights at 53kg is ideal for this and despite being up in grade, she looks the type that could overcome such barriers.
Race 7. (16:20) Canterbury League Club BM70 (1550m)
#5 – Plenty – Bet Now
Chris Waller lines up Plenty, which gave plenty last start but wasn’t able to reel in the leaders.
The three-year-old gelding finished off nicely behind some nice types and he still has plenty to learn being a three-year-old.
Drawing barrier 10 won’t be an issue as he likes to get back during the run and he could pay a nice price to win.
