Canterbury horse racing tips & form
Race 1. (13:25) Tab Maiden Handicap (1550m)
#2 – Cadenabbia @ $2.15 – Bet Now
The Chris Waller-trained colt is coming off a debut placing at Randwick and there was plenty to like about that performance.
He hit the line nicely to finish just a half-head behind Game Theory, and rising up in distance looks ideal given his breeding.
The son of Redoute’s Choice is only going to get better over longer distances, so expect a competitive performance in the opening race on Wednesday.
Race 2. (14:00) Casino Prince @ Vinery Maiden (1250m)
#1 – Argenteus @ $3.90 – Bet Now
Peter and Paul Snowden line up the colt, which turned around moderate form to finish second at Kembla Grange last start.
The son of Written Tycoon ran a half-length behind Beauchamp and facing easier opposition was all he needed to show his best form.
His first three starts came behind the likes of Mamaragan, Prague, and Holyfield. Therefore, he deserves to be well-backed for this race.
Race 3. (14:35) Hyland Race Colours BM72 (1900m)
#4 – @ $3.90 – Bet Now
Guise only narrowly missed at Rosehill last start when finishing a nose behind stablemate Word For Word. It was a terrific performance and she looks set to score an overdue win.
The Waller-trained mare is a five-time winner but she hasn’t won for some time now. She scored at her only start at Canterbury, so getting back on this track could help.
Kerrin McEvoy rides and she looks like the testing material.
Race 4. (15:10) Bowermans Furniture BM72 (1550m)
#7 – Achiever @ $4.80 – Bet Now
Achiever didn’t fire in the Ming Dynasty last start but this is a massive drop in class. The Waller-trained colt won at Randwick prior to that, scoring easily by 3.3 lengths.
Although he couldn’t perform well at Group 3 level, he is a nice type and midweek levels shouldn’t hold him for too long. He has form behind the likes of Peltzer and Sauvestre, so he goes clearly on top here.
Expect plenty of money to come his way on race day.
Race 5. (15:45) Frosted @ Darley BM72 (1100m)
#7 – Hulk @ $5 – Bet Now
Hulk is another runner for Chris Waller that looks capable of scoring here. The four-year-old gelding finished second at Canterbury last start and he hit the line with purpose late.
The son of I Am Invincible has experience racing against high-quality fields. He finished behind Tailleur at Randwick two back and a fourth behind Dirty Work last season.
He faces a tough field here but punters should get value odds.
Race 6. (16:20) Ranvet BM72 (1250m)
#1 – Big Parade @ $3 – Bet Now
Big Parade didn’t win as the $2.70 favourite last start but punters should stick with him. The four-year-old owns two wins and two second placings from six starts, so the quality is there.
He didn’t get all luck in running and despite rising in weight for this run, he is facing a slightly easier field.
Josh Parr rides off the inside draw, where he could control the speed and kick clear at the top of the straight.
Race 7. (16:55) Sky Racing Active BM72 (1200m)
#3 – Gold Bracelet @ $26 – Bet Now
Gold Bracelet is coming through provincial racing but it’s tough to overlook her form. The four-year-old mare has won her last three starts, and she could be a type that rises through the grades.
This field has a lot more depth than at the likes of Taree and Port Macquarie. However, she has been progressing nicely and punters will get value odds on Wednesday.
She gets 2kg off her back and we wouldn’t be surprised to see her winning.
