Canterbury (Wednesday) Betting Preview & Tips
Betting tips for every race at Canterbury. Today’s best bet is in race 6
Canterbury for our midweek meeting here in Sydney. We have seven races on the card with small fields as the off season really hits us now. Race one on the card looks quite good with some of these horses looking Brisbane bound. The track will be good and the rail is out 3m

Best Roughie: R2 – 1. HIS KYLLACHY
R1 – 1.15pm. Hyland Race Colours Handicap - 1250m.
No1 IN TIMES OF WAR backs up after what was a solid first-up run last week in what looks to be a better race than this. He should be improved for that and with blinkers on he looks hard to beat.
No2 SLOW BURN was a huge winner on debut last week, she quickened when Clark asked her to go and trotted in by four-lengths. Backing up a week after a big debut is a query, but the win was so good I have to include her.
No4 ANGARHAD didn’t have the best of luck when resuming at Kembla, she had good form around her last prep and should improve second-up.
No5 SISKEN smoked them in fast time first-up at Newcastle, that track has been playing fast but the win was so good I have to include her here from barrier 1.
VALUE RUNNER: No 4 ANGARHAD
R2 – 1.50pm. Ranvet Handicap - 1550m.
No1 HIS KYLLACHY (BEST ROUGHIE) taking a punt that this horse is ready to go after the trial last Monday, he was good enough through the line and this is a weak race. His UK form is good enough for this.
No3 NEVER BACK DOWN gets on speed favors here and was just run down late last start. If he gets left alone in front he will be hard to hold out as he can run a strong mile.
No5 SAHARA EAGLE finally won a race last start after threatening to do so for his short career, now that he has broken through he could well take the next step.
No4 SAVVAN closed off well in what looks to be a good race first up, he jumps straight to 1550m now and the set up isn’t the best, but the small field should suit.
VALUE RUNNER: No 1 HIS KYLLACHY
R3 – 2.25pm. Casino Prince @ Vinery Plate - 1100m.
No4 FREE SKY (NEXT BEST BET) looks to have a mortgage on this race given the form that has come out of his debut run and his trial leading into this which was first class. Form around Gibraltar Girl has been shown in the last few weeks. From gate 7 Tommy should be able to cross and lead here and dictate terms, if he is able to do that, game over.
No7 NOIRE just couldn’t match it last week with Slow Burn, she beat the rest easily enough and is a chance here.
No6 DECEPTACON has been trialing up well leading into a debut run here and should be thereabouts.
No5 CYMBALISIM closed off well enough last week on debut and should improve here.
VALUE RUNNER: No6 DECEPTACON
R4 – 3.05pm. TAB Handicap - 1900m.
No4 WU GOK looks to have turned it around now that he has learnt that killer instinct. The recent trial to keep him up to the mark was good enough.
No1 NOTHING BOX won well last start and basically dominated that race. The trial since was good and the step to 1900m shouldn’t be an issue.
No2 MULTITUDE has been going well enough as of late and wouldn’t shock with a win here. He should take up the running and be hard to run down.
No5 SHOW ‘EM got the job done well last start in a weaker race. The step now to 1900m is perfect.
VALUE RUNNER: No2 MULTITUDE
R5 – 3.40pm. Bowermans Office Furniture Handicap - 1200m.
No8 EL SID was good enough fresh with the big weight, second-up down in weight suits and he should be much fitter.
No7 OZARK was just touched off last start in a fast run race at Newcastle. He drops 5.5kgs for that and did start $2.15 that day. The form around him is quite good.
No5 RADICAL IMPACT won well last week at Wyong in good time. He has good form at Canterbury without winning and has a chance here.
No1 HIT THE MARK has been going quite good as of late and was good last start in a race which has held up form wise.
VALUE RUNNER: No5 RADICAL IMPACT
R6 – 4.15pm. TAB.Com.Au Handicap - 1200m.
No2 DAGNY (BEST BET) has come back in brilliant form this time in and looks ready to take that next step. It wouldn’t have been shocked to see her turn up in a Listed race in Queensland as she looks to have that ability. She drops a kilo from that run and she could well blow them away.
No4 MARAAM has been good enough in both runs since resuming and has to be considered here.
No6 DIXIE CHICK will have a short SP yet again and will find excuses, but that’s just who she is.
No8 NONPAREIL was good when winning first-up and then was quite good last week in a solid race and she’s a chance here.
VALUE RUNNER: No4 MARAAM
R7 – 4.50pm. Rubick @ Coolmore Handicap - 1900m.
No2 NEMRUD finally broke back through last start after teasing the punters for so long. He draws a good gate here and he may well have found the killer instinct.
No3 OBSCURA was horrid last start and may not have handled the wet going there. Back on dry going here he has his chance. I’m sticking fat.
No4 CROSS STITCH hasn’t had much luck at the past two runs. From barrier 14 she is going to need some again, but she has the ability.
No9 BAYSA has trialled well since the “failure” in the Adrian Knox when favourite. I am going with a complete forget there and going off the win at Goulburn.
VALUE RUNNER: No 4 CROSS STITCH
