Night racing moves to Canterbury this Friday night and there’s some money to be made on the eight-race card.
We have free tips, form and odds for all eight races, which includes some impressive types looking to progress through the grades.
Canterbury free tips & form
Race 1. (18:15) ANZ Bloodstock Maiden (1100m)
#8 – Skyann @ $3.20 – BET NOW
The three-year-old filly takes on some nice types in this field but she looked good winning a recent trial and that form should be good for this.
A daughter of Smart Missile, Skyann scored a three-length trial win at Rosehill and scoring an easy city trial win is always a good sign.
Another good sign is the odds, which suggests that there’s some stable support for the handy filly.
Race 2. (18:45) Tab Plate (1550m)
#6 – Stealth Sniper @ $3 – BET NOW
Form behind the likes of Napoleon Solo is going to stack up at this level and Stealth Sniper looks a top chance here.
He finished second behind the subsequent city winner last start and although he has placed in two from four starts without a win, it’s not far off now.
He has drawn to get a good drag into the race from barrier five and having international rider Brett Prebble in the saddle is a bonus.
Race 3. (19:15) 2019 Membership BM70 (1900m)
#9 – All But Gone @ $17 – BET NOW
The track should be a touch wet which is going to help All But Gone and punters are getting good value for the experience seven-year-old.
Trained by Damien Lane, the six-time winner hasn’t crossed the line first in some time but he wasn’t far behind them last time out at Hawkesbury and he gets in with a good weight and barrier draw.
Worth the risk at the odds
Race 4. (19:45) The Agency Real Estate BM70 (1250m)
#1 – Southern Lad @ $4.40 – BET NOW
Southern Lad might have finished seventh at Rosehill last start but he was only 1.6 lengths behind the winner and his efforts prior were good enough to contend here.
Punters might get turned off by the 61.5kg on his back but he carried 59kg when running third at Randwick two back and he carried 59.5kg to victory at Wyong earlier this year.
$4.40 is a solid price and worth taking.
Race 5. (20:15) Theraces BM70 (1550m)
#6 – Waruna @ $2.30 – BET NOW
Punters were left disappointed last start when the Kris Lees-trained runner finished third as the $1.90 favourite but she can make amends here.
The daughter of All Too Hard was only .3 of a length behind the winner so we’re prepared to give her another chance and her 1.8-length win at Randwick prior to that was full of class.
The four-time winner has only missed a placing in one of eight starts and that’s consistency punters should be looking for.
Race 6. (20:45) Canterbury Foodies Market (1100m)
#5 – Connemara @ $3.80 – BET NOW
It’s tough to overlook the unbeaten two-from-two record of Connemara and punters are getting good money for this run.
Trained by Bjorn Baker, the four-year-old mare was a debut winner at Gosford by 3.5 lengths before scoring narrowly against a tough field at Scone.
She has been primed with a winning trial at Kembla Grange and she should hit the ground running with James McDonald in the saddle. Only worry is the weight but $3.80 makes it worth the risk.
Race 7. (21:15) Evening Star BM76 (1100m)
#12 – Star Crossed @ $5.50 – BET NOW
Star Crossed is first-up after a spell and his trial form has been solid with a win and a placing.
The five-year-old gelding didn’t run well last campaign but he gets the right track conditions here and having Hugh Bowman in the saddle instead of Louise Day is a massive plus.
He gets the inside draw to work with and if there’s any moisture in the surface, his chances of winning increase significantly.
Race 8. (21:45) Australian Turf Club BM70 (1100m)
#12 – Rare Episode @ $6.50 – BET NOW
Nice odds on offer for the last-start winner which has form on both good and rain-affected tracks. The Brad Widdup-trained three-year-old has yet to miss a placing from four starts and that’s a nice record to have.
His two wins have come on soft tracks, which is a positive here and $6.50 is a value price from bookmakers.
Nice chance to win the last at Canterbury.
