Canterbury horse racing tips & form

Race 1. (13:45) Hellbent @ Yarraman Park Maiden (1200m)

#7 – Ferrari Man @ $4.40 – Bet @ PlayUp

Ferrari Man showed improvement when running second at Newcastle last start and a similar effort sees him winning.

The two-year-old son of Menari showed good tactical pace and an ability to handle rain-affected tracks, so that bodes well.

Expect Tim Clark to send him forward again.

Race 2. (14:20) Drinkwise Maiden Plate (1250m)

#6 – The Art of Flying @ $2.15 – Bet @ PlayUp

The Art of Flying has yet to win from five starts, but he’s getting close and he has been running in tough races.

He comes off a third placing at Flemington behind Overpass, which is top-level form and he also owns a placing behind Sharp Response, which won on Saturday.

It’s excellent form for midweek racing and having James McDonald in the saddle helps.

Race 3. (14:55) Schweppes BM78 (1900m)

#3 – Military Mission @ $3.90 – Bet @ PlayUp

Military Mission hasn’t done much wrong throughout his career, including a win and five placings from nine starts.

The four-year-old son of Mastercraftsman was only 1.2 lengths behind the winner last start and having track experience is ideal.

Drawing wide won’t be an issue and he handles wet tracks, so take the value available.

Race 4. (15:30) Exceed and Excel @ Inglis BM72 (1100m)

#1 – Switched @ $5.50 – Bet @ PlayUp

Switched comes off a second placing behind Mayrose at Randwick and she’s a wet track specialist.

The five-year-old mare owns a win and nine placings in heavy conditions, and many of those placings came in big races.

She puts three lengths on this field at her best and we think she can get back to her best at each way odds.

Race 5. (16:05) City Tattersalls Group BM72 (1550m)

#3 – Cross the Rubicon @ $8 – Bet @ PlayUp

Cross the Rubicon is gunning for her fourth consecutive win after scoring by two lengths at Newcastle.

The Brad Widdup-trained four-year-old has been winning by solid margins, which is always the sign of a quality type.

She deserves a chance at this level and we’re prepared to take the $8 available.

Race 6. (16:40) Tab BM72 (1550m)

#8 – Whodat @ $5.50 – Bet @ PlayUp

Whodat comes off back-to-back wins at Newcastle and he got the better of Field Legend last start, so we’re happy with the $5.50.

The Matthew Dunn-trained gelding loves racing on rain-affected tracks and there is no reason why he can’t keep delivering.

Punters get excellent each-way odds, so snap up the price.

Race 7. (17:15) First Justify Yearlings BM78 (1250m)

#12 – Norwegian Bliss @ $3 – Bet @ PlayUp

Norwegian Bliss is unbeaten after four starts and the Nathan Doyle-trained mare commands attention.

She kicked off her career with a win at Port Macquarie before winning at Newcastle and Canterbury. Having winning experience on the track helps and it came against a good field.

McDonald rides and that shows how forward she is.

Race 8. (17:50) Vinery Yearlings BM72 (1200m)

#13 – I Am Brazen @ $6 – Bet @ PlayUp

I Am Brazen didn’t fire during her first campaign but she has matured nicely and is now shooting for three in a row.

The three-year-old daughter of Brazen Beau won by Goulburn by 5.5 lengths last start and anything close to that effort would be good enough.

Getting the inside draw with 54kg on her back helps.
