Canterbury horse racing tips & form
Race 1. (12:50) ACY Securities Maiden (1250m)
#1 – Decisive Move @ $3.50 – Bet @ Sportsbet
The Waterhouse/Bott-trained two-year-old filly finished third on debut at Wyong and she was right behind the winner.
She is a well-bred type by American Pharoah that is likely to push forward and attempt to run them into the ground.
It’s not the easier field, but drawing the inside barrier should make finding the front much easier.
Race 2. (13:25) Blue Point @ Darley Maiden (1250m)
#2 – Cape Breton @ $4 – Bet @ Sportsbet
Cape Breton has looked solid at the trials, which consists of five trials for three placings. The most recent came at Rosehill where he looked ready.
The son of Vancouver is in good hands with Chris Waller and James McDonald rides, so he’s the top pick from this stable.
That is a good sign and steady money has come for him since markets opened.
Race 3. (14:00) Ranvet BM72 (1550m)
#1 – Azarmin @ $2.80 – Bet @ Sportsbet
Azarmin comes off a win at Warwick Farm and she’s more than capable of scoring back-to-back victories.
The five-year-old mare is a five-time winner from 22 starts that showed a fine turn-of-foot to win and she handles all track conditions.
It’s not an overly deep field and I’s another good ride for James McDonald, so we don’t expect the $2.80 to last long.
Race 4. (14:35) Vinery Stud BM64 (1250m)
#10 – Comporta @ $5 – Bet @ Sportsbet
Comporta has yet to win a race from three attempts, but the three-year-old has plenty of upside.
The Waller-trained daughter of Kermadec started her career with consecutive second placings before finishing fourth at Canterbury.
She gets the inside draw to work with and although there are some smart types in this field, she demands attention.
Punters get value odds and it could pay to watch betting moves.
Race 5. (15:10) Tab BM72 (1250m)
#9 – Maccomo @ $9.50 – Bet @ Sportsbet
The Joe Pride-trained four-year-old comes off consecutive placings at Goulburn and Kembla Grange, so he’s close to a win.
He is a two-time winner from 11 starts and although yet to race at Canterbury, he has every chance of sitting behind the speed and kicking clear.
Punters get lovely odds from bookmakers and the well-bred gelding should be tough to beat.
Race 6. (15:45) Bowermans Furniture BM64 (1900m)
#6 – Vigorous Flow @ $4.50 – Bet @ Sportsbet
The Peter and Paul Snowden-trained gelding has shown good ability throughout his career and his win two back at Gosford was tidy.
He scored by 1.3 lengths before finishing fourth at Newcastle last start, which is form good enough to take out this contest.
Barrier five is ideal and it’s another quality ride for James McDonald, so punters should expect a top effort.
Race 7. (16:20) XXXX BM72 (1550m)
#3 – Cadenabbia @ $1.95 – Bet @ Sportsbet
Cadenabbia looked the goods when winning at Warwick Farm last start and we’re expecting that form to stack up nicely.
The three-year-old son of Redoute’s Choice is good enough to rise through the grades and he only needs luck from the draw.
Annabel Neasham has the Midas touch this season and punters have come for her colt. $1.95 is a touch short but he has the most upside of any runner in this field.
