Next Best Bet: R2 – 2. ASTERIUS

Best Roughie: R7 – 3. VIRGILIO

R2 – 6.45pm. TAB Rewards Handicap - 1550m.

No2 ASTERIUS (NEXT BEST BET) started big odds on debut, but ran right through the line there in what was a big performance for a debutant. Big jockey change here with McEvoy on (welcome back) and the step up to 1550m suits here and he is hard to beat.

 

No1 CONDOR just missed first-up in a driving finish and should take good fitness improvement. He looks to be the exacta horse here.

 

No3 DEVIL’S LUCK gets Shinn on board here and gets a good run on the map from gate 3.

 

No5 OMBUDSMAN looks to be next best here in a race which drops away.

 

VALUE RUNNER: No3 DEVILS LUCK

R3 – 7.15pm. Book Summer Hospitality Today Handicap - 1250m.

No7 IT’S SO OBVIOUS was very good when winning first-up, where she looked to take a lot of improvement from the run. She is a mare on the way up.

 

No8 FORBIDDEN KISSES was a good winner last start when getting all the luck, form out of the race is a touch sticky however.

 

No2 HILLARY STEP was rundown late last start when leading them up at Warwick Farm, she looks the likely leader and should be hard to catch.

 

No3 KOPITE was a good winner last start at Taree and is well weighted after the claim here, she has a horror record at Canterbury though.

 

VALUE RUNNER: No2 HILARY STEP

R4 – 7.45pm. TAB Handicap - 1550m.

No2 MR TICKETS got a gun ride from Clark last start when getting the job done in good order. From gate 7, Clark rolls across and dominates the race here.

 

No4 FEELIN THE LOVE gets a good claim for JVO here as well as a good run on the map from gate 3. The win last start was quite good.

 

No5 FOURNETTE comes out of a good race last start when running behind Tashin, the late sectional was good and Shinn gets a good run on the map from 2.

 

No9 MARROCK was ok last start behind Danzie, and I don’t mind that race as one to follow. He rolls forward here and looks a chance.

 

VALUE RUNNER: No4 FEELING THE LOVE

R5 – 8.15pm. Australian Turf Club Handicap - 1200m.

No3 FORTENSKY (BEST BET) was just beaten last start when rundown late by Faraway Town in a high rating race. He comes back in grade here to an ok enough race and gets Shinn who has a good record on him. From gate 4, he will sit just behind the speed here and pounce late and prove to be too good.

 

No2 WILD ‘N’ FAMOUS got over the top of them late last start at Warwick Farm, there doesn’t look to be as much speed here.

 

No4 OKLAHOMA GIRL has last shot at them here, she is a high quality mare who has her chance here.

 

No8 STAR REFLECTION comes well back in grade here after taking on Listed level last start, the two prior runs were good.

 

VALUE RUNNER: No4 OKLAHOMA GIRL

R6 – 4.55pm. Schweppes Handicap - 1100m.

No2 PEDWAY (NEXT BEST BET) ran up to his typical second-up record last start with an average effort. That came after a booming win fresh, where he was dynamic in a race which wasn’t run to suit him at all. Clark now gets back on board him, he was on him fresh when he won as well as in the trials. The form that he brings to this is quite good, and to the 1100m of Canterbury which is going to be much more suitable as he will be able to run along and not go flat out from the start, like you usually do over 1000m.

 

No1 AKASAKI got run into the ground last start by Montreal and that told late where he basically dropped out, forgive that effort as he was gassed and go off his other form and he has his chance here.

 

No6 GENETEAU comes back to 1100m here which is much more suitable than the 1200m of last start. The form out of that race should hold up quite well, she doesn’t seem to like winning but should run well again.

 

No7 CORDONED has solid enough form and was quite good fresh at Gosford when running good time there. His second-up record is average, but he was good enough fresh.

 

VALUE RUNNER: No6 GENETEAU

R7 – 9.15pm. #THERACES Handicap - 1100m.

No6 SPENDING TO WIN ran up to the drift fresh, running out of gas late. Should be much fitter second-up and hard to beat.

 

No1 VICEROY comes out of that good race behind Faraway Town last start, and has a good record at Canterbury.

 

No3 VIRGILIO (BEST ROUGHIE) has a good fresh record and resumes without a trial, watch the betting here.

 

No5 STAR CROSSED will try to lead them here, he hasn’t captured his best form this time in. But should run well at Canterbury.

 

VALUE RUNNER: No3 VIRGILIO

R8 – 9.45pm. TAB.com.au Handicap - 1100m.

No8 MISS QUE resumes here and was a very good winner on debut, forgive start two where nothing went right. The trials have been good.

 

No3 GENETEAU well she won last start! Could have knocked me over with a feather, she is in form so I need to respect it.

 

No6 ECCELLERE was a good winner last start when running them ragged. No trial since the freshen up, but she should run well here.

 

No5 ARIZONA WILDCAT resumes here for the new stable and brings across good enough form, the trial was good.

 

VALUE RUNNER: No5 ARIZONA WILDCAT
