Canterbury horse racing tips & form
Race 1. (13:25) Harry Angel @ Darley Maiden (1100m)
#1 – Camerlengo @ $2.65 – Bet Now
The Waterhouse/Bott-trained colt owns three trial wins and he could make a winning debut. His most recent trial wins came at Randwick where he defeated two subsequent winners.
He defeated Tommy Gold and Acrophobic, which have since won and that’s going to bode well for this race.
The son of More than Ready gets the inside draw and with Tim Clark in the saddle, expect a positive ride throughout.
Race 2. (14:00) Drinkwise Maiden Plate (1250m)
#9 – Irish Angel @ $3.80 – Bet Now
It is always wise to take notice of a Waller/McDonald combination and Irish Angel could be too strong for her opposition.
The three-year-old filly didn’t fully let down at Kembla Grange last start but being on the quick back up should be ideal.
She gets in with only 55kg on her back and from a good barrier draw, punters should expect a turnaround in form.
Race 3. (14:35) Ranvet Salkavite BM70 (1900m)
#2 – Monsieur Sisu @ $4 – Bet Now
The five-year-old doesn’t win all that often but he meets an even field and he should be able to take advantage.
He is coming off a fifth at Canterbury when running behind Kirwan’s Lane and his form prior to that would also be good enough to win this race.
He can be a risky bet but the $4 is a fair price and worth taking.
Race 4. (15:10) Sky Racing Active BM70 (1550m)
#7 – Milunka @ $2.10 – Bet Now
Milunka returned with style last start when scoring by 1.3 lengths at Canterbury. The four-year-old mare has shown good ability throughout her career, which includes two wins and three placings.
The mare by All Too Hard has form around some smart types and although it is harder to win second-up, she’s the horse in this race.
The odds reflect that and with Hugh Bowman riding, expect her current odds to firm.
Race 5. (15:45) Yes Yes Yes @ Coolmore BM70 (1100m)
#3 – Zaniah @ $2.35 – Bet Now
Zaniah is a quality type for trainer Kris Lees, which has three wins and two placings from only eight starts.
The four-year-old mare by Zoustar goes best when racing fresh, with four starts for two wins. She hits the ground running and her trial form leading into this race has been good.
She scored a trial win at Gosford before placing at Wyong, so she is ready to go and we’re not surprised at the short odds on offer.
Race 6. (16:20) Exceedance @ Vinery BM70 (1200m)
#8 – Lillemor @ $5 – Bet Now
Lillemor was a gusty winner at Canterbury last start and she could go back-to-back on this track.
The three-year-old filly won by a narrow margin in conditions similar to what she will face on Wednesday. It was her third win from six career starts and she has made an excellent start to her career.
$5 is a good each-way price from bookmakers and Louise Day takes some much-needed weight off her back.
