Canterbury Race 1 Horse Racing Betting Tips

RISING RED - Was having his third run back from more than a year off when on the speed throughout and fighting on strongly for third in the JRA Plate at Randwick last start. He had to do some work early to get into a forward position and probably wasn’t entitled to finish as close as he did in the end. He’s drawn out wide but the in-form Corey Brown takes the reins and I’m hoping he can turn in a gem and not be stuck wide, if he is I’m hoping it’s with cover. Rising Red is a class commodity who finished the bravest of seconds in last year’s New Zealand Derby. He’s consistent when he strikes form and no doubt he has the class to beat these.

Canterbury Race 2 Horse Racing Betting Tips

IN HER TIME - Want to be on something to beat Redzel and keep coming back to In Her Time. She’s an outstanding mare and even though she hasn’t had the best of luck on numerous occasions her record is still an impressive eight wins and five minor placings from only 19 starts. At her last run she should have finished much closer to Redzel than two-lengths when third in the T J Smith Stakes after an impressive win in the Galaxy. The Racenet Speed Map shows In Her Time getting the perfect trail around fifth on a fast speed and I can see her peeling to the outside on straightening and being too strong in the last 200m.

DROICHAID - Mazaz is favourite so I have to play. This imported stayer has been doing a solid job in his first three Australian starts and Saturday’s race is the first time I suspect he gets to a trip that’s going to suit. Caught the eye first-up then scored a good win, given a five-week break then returned and bumped into the progressive Goathland last time, that horse is in Brisbane on Saturday for a Group III race. Droichard was doing his best work late last time, in a manner that suggested he wants ground, which he gets here. Got his share of weight but this is a big class drop and I expect him to prove too good.

GRAND ROSSO - This bloke’s a new addition to the Peter and Paul Snowden stable. He’s a former Victorian-trained accomplished galloper, a multiple stakes winner with a solid record at 1400m, so I love the fact he’s at 1300m fresh. His first trial was quiet without the blinkers, which went on in his second trial and what a trial it was, towing his rider to the line to win it in good style. Peter Snowden’s a Scone boy that normally sets a few for this carnival and I have a sneaking suspicion, that’s the case with this horse so at these odds, I’m jumping aboard.

SHAZEE LEE - I pegged this mare at the start of last spring as a genuine improver and she didn’t live up to what I expected. This prep she was good late then last time she was in the worst part of the track but found the line better than anything in the Godolphin Crown. She’s better served under the handicap conditions of this race and the extra 100m is also in her favour. I would love the edge off the track, which I probably won’t get but I reckon she’s going great and come the second last race of the carnival, I expect her to be making her run out in the best ground.
