Meeting Overview

Rail Position: True | Track Condition: Good 4

The track is currently a good 4 and the rail is in the true position, we can expect the track to play fairly overall.

BEST BACK OF THE DAY: Race 7 | #7 Way To The Stars (WIN) for 4 units

Looks a very smart galloper who so far in his short career has been able to sustain speed at the start and end of his races. There is speed drawn inside of him here however expect Collett to let that unfold in front of him and then once in the straight let the horse go from just in behind the lead.

 BEST LAY OF THE DAY: Race 3 | #1 Inuwashi to win 1 unit

Was a big price on debut and got a long way back in the run. At the current price, happy to risk this horse as it will likely be back again and have too much to do in the run home on the tight turning Canterbury circuit.


Race 1 | KEY RUNNERS

4. Robusto
2. Great Siege
1. Dreamtime Legend
8. Revolutionary Miss

Betting Strategy

No bets – in a 2yo race with lots of unexposed form, happy to watch and learn.


Race 2 | KEY RUNNERS

3. Nickelback
4. California Surreal
1. Solvere
5. My Turn Astern

Betting Strategy

BACK (EACH-WAY) — Nickelback for 1 unit to win, 1 unit to place.

Was heavily backed on debut and was just plain on a heavy track. Has been given time since and the horse is a big price, simply having to forgive one poor run when he looked very good at the trials prior. Happy to play here each way.


Race 3 | KEY RUNNERS

1. Inuwashi
3. Spitfire
6. Pretes
5. Amber One

Betting Strategy

LAY (WIN) — Inuwashi to win 1 unit

Was a big price on debut and got a long way back in the run. At the current price, happy to risk this horse as it will likely be back again and have too much to do in the run home on the tight turning Canterbury circuit.


Race 4 | KEY RUNNERS

5. Metro Legend
6. Fiordland
4. Maccomo
2. Savoury

Betting Strategy

LAY (WIN) — Maccomo to win 1 unit

Gets the wide draw here in the small field. Likely to attempt to push forward and lead, and that is enough to risk at the current price, as there are horses who will be right in behind with softer runs then him.


Race 5 | KEY RUNNERS

4. Mars
2. Athena’s Lad
1. Fortified
9. Josephus

Betting Strategy

No bets – in an open race with many chances there is no edge so happy to stay out.


Race 6 | KEY RUNNERS

4. Finally Realise
5. Land Of Valens
6. Texcel
8. Retiro

Betting Strategy

BACK (WIN) — Finally Realise for 1 units

Has been racing well so far this prep in strong Midway races and enters this BM72 3rd up with Winkers applied for the first time. Deserves a win and I think this horse is well placed tonight.


Race 7 | KEY RUNNERS

7. Way To The Stars
2. Able Willie
3. Duchess
4. Sky Command

Betting Strategy

BACK (WIN) — Way To The Stars for 4 units
