Posted: November 25, 2016

Race comments, confidence and ratings across the entire card at Canterbury.

Canterbury Markets R1 – 8

R1 Schweppes BM63 | 1500m | 6:15pm

Miss Ballantine brings clearly the best ratings into this race, courtesy of her last start second placing in Saturday class over this track and distance. She’s well suited by a moderately run race and looks impossible to fault.

Race Confidence: Good

Runner Name Rating
2. Miss Ballantine $1.95
1. Hostwin Vintage $4.50
6. Fast Arli $7.00
3. Valentino Rossa $7.50

R2 Mdn Plate | 1900m | 6:45pm

This race has been significantly affected by scratching, leaving just four runners. Black on Gold was beaten 1.2L at Warwick Farm last start but never got clear at any stage in the straight and should have won easily. His overall form & ratings profile combined with the step up to what looks a suitable 1900m presents him as a genuine long odds on chance in this race.

Race Confidence: Good

Runner Name Rating
3. Black On Gold $1.40
2. Oakfield Midnight $9.00
5. Lucky Tiger $11.00
6. Shaolin Kungfu $11.00

R3 NSW Racehorse Owners Assoc Mdn  | 1100| 7:15pm

This looks a very even and competitive race made more difficult by a number of first starters. Artemis Rose looks to profile best though off a couple of good trials and form a stable (Hawkes) that has a terrific record with first starters.

Race Confidence: Low

Runner Name Rating
6. Artemis Rose $4.00
5. Argie Bargie $5.00
8. Cant Find Snippy $6.00
9. Invincible Gem $6.00
1. Amazing Story $6.50
4. Never Been Another $14.00
10. Our Girl Hollie $101.00

R4 BM72 | 1100m | 7:45pm

An even and competitive race, but the country visitor Aspiring presents as a good value prospect here. Her 1000m win at Muswellbrook returned figures that measure right up to this race and she’ll make her own luck up near the lead.

Race Confidence: Average

Runner Name Rating
2. Aspiring $4.40
5. Bonny Oreilly $4.50
9. Eccellere $5.00
4. Navua Mist $8.00
1. In Her Time $14.00
3. Kopite $14.00
7. Manhattan Chic $15.00
6. Sammi Jain $26.00

R5 #TheRaces BM71 | 1550m | 8:15pm

Lucky Fish has been racing very consistently and gets his chance to break through here. His recent ratings give him a solid edge leading into this race and one of those was last start over the same track and distance as this race. He should race forward here and looks ideally suited.

Race Confidence: Good

Runner Name Rating
6. Lucky Fish $2.30
3. Classic Uniform $4.80
7. Sea Sharp $7.50
1. El Novio $9.00
4. Admiral Jello $13.00
9. Tennessee Fling $26.00

R6 TAB Rewards | 1900m | 8:45pm

No Return took a clear step forward in his ratings last start when he stepped up to 1900m, narrowly beaten by The Bull in a good time rating with a big space to the rest of the field. That’s clearly the best lead up form into this race and fourth up here with Bowman riding for Waller there’s no reason he can’t repeat or even improve further.

Race Confidence: Good

Runner Name Rating
5. No Return $2.90
3. Low Places $7.00
8. Don Pellegrino $9.00
4. Citations $10.00

7. Rye $15.00
10. Living Choice $17.00
1. Zee Zeely $26.00

R8 So You Think @ Coolmore | 1200m | 9:45pm

Ciarlet comes off two solid ratings, the best of them last start when second over 1100m at this track. A repeat of that is good enough to win this.
