Canterbury betting preview: Free horse racing tips for Wednesday's meeting with four selections in every race. Our best bet is in race 7.

Tue, 6 Jun, 2:16 AM


Canterbury is our midweek venue in Sydney this week, this track is our winter stalwart and plays brilliantly week in week out. The track will be on the good range come race day and the rail is true. We have seven races on the card to bet into with some intriguing races on offer here.



QUADDIES (races 4-5-6-7)

Skinny Play: 9,10 – 5,8 – 1,2,8 - 3

Wide Play: 3,7,9,10 – 5,6,8 – 1,2,8,9,11,12 – 3,6,2



Best Roughie: R2 – 5. MATRIX

R1 – 12.50pm. Casino Prince @ Vinery Handicap - 1100m.

No8 BOOROOJ (BEST BET) started fav in the Widden stakes on debut and was solid enough there. She has had a good break since and has trialled well coming into a fresh run here. From gate 1 she is going to get all favours in the run and only needs an ounce of luck to be winning this race.


No5 NEWBURGH comes out of a good race on debut behind Menari, the form should hold up well and he has trialled well.


No1 GAULOIS is yet to live up to the early hype surrounding him, but has put in some good performances. Up to his best he goes close.


No6 SEAWATCH has been trialing in good fashion coming into a debut run and should perform well.



R2 – 1.25pm. Plate - 1550m.

No2 THAI BOXING gets Bowman who’s on the chase for the title here and looks to get all advantages in the run, he looks set to peak here.


No1 STAR OF MONSOON what needs to be said that we haven’t said, has ability is scared of the line.


No5 MATRIX (BEST ROUGHIE) has been running well in weaker races and getting out to 1550m here suits, Williams is starting to fire with his team.


No6 QUEEN OF HEIGHTS was probably a touch flat second-up from a spell, gets out to 1550m now and that suits.



THAI BOXING Canterbury Park AUS 04:25 - Winner

R3 – 2.05pm. Ranvet Handicap - 1900m.

No5 HAY NOW has really turned the corner this time in for Dale with wins at all three starts, out to 1900m now after the highway suits here and she is hard to beat as she is low flying.


No7 ESTIKHRAAJ was probably a touch flat second-up from a spell when 1400m-1600m second-up. Now to 1900m third-up he has his chance.


No2 THE GAVEL was well backed and dominated the race last start, he stays at the same distance here and looks to get all favors again.


No6 COLLATERAL was strong when winning last start at Gosford, this is a step up, but Baker is really placing his horses well.



R4 – 2.40pm. TAB Handicap - 1250m.

No10 PEACEFUL SEA has left the Cummings yard since the last prep and turns up with Waller here, she broke through finally at the end of last prep and that could be the making of her.


No9 SEVENTHCHIC was solid enough first-up, now second up from a soft gate for Bowman she has her chance.


No7 THE CHEETAH won in good style and good time fresh at Hawkesbury, the worry is Team Hawkes aren’t firing at the moment.


No3 PASSAGE OF TIME drops well in grade here after what was a disappointing run when fav last time.



R5 – 3.15pm Schweppes Handicap - 1550m.

No5 SHIELD WALL looks to get a good run on the map here, as I expect Bowman to come across from the outside barrier and sit outside of Street Pursuit and dominate the race.


No8 MATE STORY comes out of good races at his first two starts, Dubios places his horses in races they can win and should be respected wherever they turn up.


No6 STREET PURSUIT looks the likely leader here, but is quickly up to 1550m, if he gets pressured in front he may be found wanting late.


No3 LEUCURA was good in winning the Parkes Cup last start, N Heywood is riding well at the minute and will have extra motivation here to win one for his dad.



R6 – 3.50pm. Bowermans Office Furniture Handicap - 1100m.

No8 INVINCIBLE GEORGE should have trotted up in his last start at Newcastle in April. He gets McEvoy now and although the gate is sticky, he will get room to wind up and have the last shot at them.


No2 SECRET TRAIL drops out of Saturday grade where she wasn’t disgraced first-up, this is weaker and she should be improved.


No1 HOT HIT was good enough at Scone in a good race, I want to see him do it again here. He is well weighted.


No11 BLOWING KISSES drops well in grade here and should find this much easier, she needs to get her confidence back.



R7 – 4.25pm. TAB Rewards Handicap - 1250m.

No3 SHAHRAZAD was poor fresh and that wasn’t like her at all, she gets a perfect smother run here for Bowman and will be flying late.


No6 LOVE’S A FANTASTY is low flying this time in and has found a race in which she can have the last shot at them.


No2 MAGNAJOY first up she was 5.3L off Bonny O'Reilly. Will be fitter here and with Adkins' claim she can be right in this.
