Betting Tips for every race at Canterbury. Friday night racing from Canterbury, eight races on the card all competitive races with a few nice types going around. The autumn is just starting to warm up and this is a good pipe opener for the weekend. The rail is out 7m the circumference and the track should be in the soft range with rain expected in the lead up.

R1 - 6:15pm. TAB REWARDS HANDICAP - 1550m.

No 6 LA CHATTE Blew from $1.60 - $2.70 first-up and disappointed, in what did look a strong race on paper. Quickly out to the 1550m suits here and with fitness on her side she is a chance.

No 4 NOBLE TRUTH Was good when changing tactics and leading last start when quickly up to 1600m and he blew out of fitness late. Staying at the mile no concern and he gets every chance from the gate.

No 3 SEPOY ACHEVA Is starting to become a little costly to punters but is getting closer to a win each time he goes around. He looks ready to win and has to be respected.

No 2 MY KIND Comes out of good races at the past two starts and is ready to breakthrough. From gate 1 McEvoy can sit that touch closer in the run.

LA CHATTECanterbury Park AUS 07:15 - Winner

R2 - 6:45pm. #THERACES HANDICAP - 1550m.

No 4 TUMULTUOUS Should improve on the quick back up here. Basically didn’t handle the heavy 10 going. Forget that and go off previous form. He is better than that and up to 1550m with Bowman suits.

No 2 MARQUEE Has been running well in Country cups as of late and now comes to town and looks well placed in what is a weak race here. He claims well down and on his best is a danger.

No 1 SATIRICAL MAGIC Steps out to 1550m for the first time in his career and has been running well without much luck as of late, this is a weak race and he has a chance.

No 3 NEVER BACK DOWN Looks to be next best in a race where any result would not surprise at all.

TUMULTUOUSCanterbury Park AUS 07:45 - Winner

R3 - 7:15pm. TAB.COM.AU HANDICAP - 1200m.

No 4 AQUATIC Smashed them last start when coming off a solid trial leading in. He won like a $1.30 shot not a $61 chance which he was. Despite the SP, the way he won that you have to follow him.

No 2 OZARK Has had two shortcourse trials leading into this and because of that he may be found wanting late. The form around him is good, but the two “short” trials worry me.

No 11 MISSILE CODA Won well on debut last year and has trialled solidly leading into this first-up run. McEvoy on with only 53kgs on her back from the good gate need to be respected.

No 5 CALIFORNIA ELITE Smashed them at Newcastle and in super-fast time. The win was utterly arrogant and while this is a big step up, you need to respect the win.


R4 -7:45pm. SCHWEPPES HANDICAP - 1550m.

No 4 PHILOSOPHY (Best Bet) Has been brilliant in both wins since a lengthy spell. She has shown that she has well above average ability in both of those wins and I can see no reason as to why she cannot go on with it again here.

No 1 FUNLOVING Smashed them last start, but this is tougher.

No 2 POSITIVE PROBLEMS Suited by getting out to the mile.

No 5 AWOKE Improved last start, but yet to show her best.


R6 - 8:45pm. TOOHEYS NEW EVENING STAR CUP - 1900m.

No 5 LORD DE AIR (Best Roughie) Ready to win a race now after three runs this time in, each run he jumped up in distance sharply and he now comes to 1900m after the 1800m run. Adkins has ridden the horse perfectly and will give him every chance.

No 1 OLYMPIC ACADEMY Is one of the most honest horses going around at the minute, he rarely puts in a bad run and drops in grade here, hence the weight. But he has to be given a chance.

No 6 NO RETURN Doesn’t like winning, but always runs well. He looks to do the same here. He has won two of his three races at the track so that needs to be respected.

No 2 CAUTHEN'S POWER Should appreciate getting out to the 1900m here. The way he has been running as of late has given the indication that 1900m is going to suit.

LORD DE AIRCanterbury Park AUS 09:45 - Winner

R7 - 9:15pm. ROBRICK LODGE HANDICAP - 1200m.

No 3 SUPPLY AND DEMAND (Next Best Bet) Was brilliant first-up when having no luck at all. When he got clear he absolutely smashed the line and had “back me next start” written all over him. Out in the wide barrier (16) here I am not worried, as he will not get cluttered up by other horses and he should be winning.

No 5 ACHI BABA Won well last start and the trial between runs was good.

No 9 RADICAL IMPACT Has placed five times at the track and always runs well here.

No 11 AJANI Was good last start and with even luck should be closer here.



No 2 STAR SHAFT Was good enough first-up, the step up to 1250m second-up here is much more suitable. He has placed at all four runs second-up in the past and is well weighted after the claim.

No 1 I'M ROCKIN' Has been in great form as of late, he has to bring Kembla form to Canterbury now, but if he brings that form to this race he is a chance.

No 8 TABROBANE Has been running well as of late in some good form races. He is a winner at the track in the past and after the claim, that needs to be respected.

No 12 REMUMERATOR Has been running well as of late without threatening. Down in grade again here. If she runs to her best she is going to give them a shake.

STAR SHIFTCanterbury Park AUS 10:45 - Winner
