Canterbury horse racing tips
Race 1. (18:15) Long May We Play Maiden (1250m)
#9 – Tawaret – Bet Now
This isn’t an overly strong field to open the card and Tawaret could take advantage of that.
The Chris Waller-trained mare has finished second on four from 11 race day starts and that form should be good enough to take this out.
It’s good to see James McDonald in the saddle and she hit the line nicely for second last start, so expect another tidy effort.
Race 2. (18:45) Bowermans Office Furniture Maiden (1550m)
#8 – Earth Song – Bet Now
Earth Song is another Waller/McDonald runner which has been indicating that a win isn’t far off.
The three-year-old filly by Nicconi finished a long way behind Starla last start but that was a tough race and this is easier.
Punters should look for confidence in the market and use that as a good guide to this.
Should be right around the mark.
Race 3. (19:15) Agency Project Management BM70 (1900m)
#1 – Adana – Bet Now
Adana might only be a two-race winner from 21 starts, but he has more ability than most lining up in this race.
He’s another runner for the Waller/McDonald combination, who could make a great start to the night.
Adana closed off nicely for third at Canterbury last start and he should strip fitter for that run.
The small field suits and he should be tough to beat.
Race 4. (19:45) Mirvac Maiden Handicap (1100m)
#9 – Best Stone – Bet Now
John Thompson lines up the three-year-old filly which hasn’t been far away in two career starts to date.
The daughter of I Am Invincible ran second on debut at Kembla Grange before running only a half-length behind a nice type at Hawkesbury.
She won’t take long to break maiden grades and with Nash Rawiller taking the ride, expect a good trip in transit.
Punters should be able to get each-way odds in this big field.
Race 5. (20:15) The Agency Real Estate BM70 (1200m)
#9 – Discharged – Bet Now
Discharged has good natural pace and that’s needed over this short-course distance.
The three-year-old colt scored a win on this track in May before taking on some good company. He ran fifth behind Prince Fawaz and then took on a good field at Eagle Farm.
That’s hot form for a race like this and his trial form has been good. He has placed in both trials leading into this run and he should prove tough to hold out.
Race 6. (20:45) Bisley Workwear BM70 (1250m)
#6 – Brazilica – Bet Now
That was an encouraging run from Brazilica last start and she could start living up to expectations now.
Trained by Chris Waller, the four-year-old mare flashed home to finish third at Canterbury behind Heaven on Earth.
The form out of that race should hold up nicely and although she’s taking on a hot field here, she has the ability to win.
Drawing barrier 11 won’t make it easy, but if Tommy Berry can find a good position, she should be putting in the big bounds late.
Race 7. (21:15) Kia Evening Star BM76 (1250m)
#9 – Heaven on Earth – Bet Now
Heaven on Earth has bounce back into form brilliantly with consecutive wins. The five-year-old mare scored a huge upset win on this track last start.
She paid $40 to win and defeated a field full of talented types. That bodes well for this run and she gets some things in her favour.
The inside draw and a light weight of 54kg will bring her into contention once again.
Race 8. (21:45) Canterbury League Club BM70 (1550m)
#10 – Bigboyroy – Bet Now
Bigboyroy couldn’t have been any more impressive when breaking maiden grades at Canterbury last start.
He had always shown good ability for trainer Chris Waller, but ran into some nice types. He put that behind him last start when scoring by just under five lengths.
It was a run from a gelding which could easily progress through the grades now that he has broken through.
We’re expecting that to happen and although the big weight hurts, he’s got some class about him.
