Race-by-race tips and preview for Canterbury on Friday night
Tips and race by means of race preview by Ray Hickson for Friday’s nighttime assembly at Canterbury. Selections
based totally on good music.
Race 1 – 6:15 PM #THERACES HANDICAP (1250 METRES)
2. I Am Zain could be very properly placed right here by means of the Hawkes stable. He was aggressive in open -yr-
antique events in Melbourne remaining guidance but is returned as a gelding and springs off a soft trial win at
Canterbury a couple of weeks ago. I’d expect him to be inside the first few in running and be proper there
on the finish.

Dangers: 7. Plenty has to be forgiven for a costly defeat at Moonee Valley final begin wherein he was
trapped wide and wasn’t disgraced overwhelmed 2.6 lengths. He did start favourite on the returned of a pair
of on-hand placings on the identical music. Needs a win however drawn nicely and has James McDonald, which
is probably an excellent lead. Four. Matowi took on a few smart ones in his first coaching with a near
2nd to Tarka his quality effort. Another that has been gelded, no longer positive what to make of an ordeal on
the synthetic however he wasn’t absolutely examined in it. Keep secure. Five. Exoplanet started out inside the market at her
debut 3 weeks ago and didn’t do an entire lot on the heavy track. Might pay to overlook that lower back
onto an amazing track so she may be an improver.
How to play it: I Am Zain E/W.
Race 2 – 6:45 PM SUMMER NIGHT RACING HANDICAP (1100 METRES)
The marketplace may be huge with the primary starter 7. You’re Next opening favourite at the lower back of
an impressive trials win two months ago. Not seen seeing that then but with the blinkers applied inside the
trial, he without problems accounted for A Million Dreams, who has received in town because. If he stays stable in having a bet, or firms, he’ll move very near.
Dangers: eight. Lashes is a very interesting runner, she began $1.95 on debut at Hawkesbury and led
earlier than folding up and lacking an area. She had cardiac arrhythmia there so that’s a massive excuse. Trialled well again in view that and from a terrific gate she’s worth retaining safe. Three. The Pindus left himself with an excessive amount of to do first-up as an odds-on favoured at Goulburn and he had no desire of walking down Sheriff, who had an easy sufficient lead. He could enjoy a chunk of pace and with four seconds from five begins can’t be disregarded. Another huge watch is 4. Rancho Notorious first-up off 3 seconds at
Goulburn and Newcastle and have determined Hugh Bowman to trip. The second trial turned into solid sufficient, has
the internal alley and is worthy of a few attention.
How to play it: You’re Next WIN; Trifecta 7/3,four,eight/3,four,eight.
Race 3 – 7.15PM AUTUMN CARNIVAL ON SALE HANDICAP (1100 METRES)
Happy to speak sixteen. Just Jessie in a race with masses of query marks. She trialled thoroughly with
Hayakawa earlier than her debut in a 900m scamper at Scone run in stable rain. I concept she should have
completed nearer and should enhance sharply up in distance. At properly each-way odds it might be no marvel to peer her run thoroughly.
Dangers: 10. My Fire Phoenix did the task professionally in her handiest public trial with an all-the-way win at Canterbury two weeks in the past. Drawn nicely and if she runs as much as the trial attempt then she’s right in this. 1. Nanaimo has the shape at the board from a fourth to increase filly Brooklyn Hustle then a reachable third within the Inglis Nursery. Granted she had saloon runs on the fence in that race but it was
nevertheless a pleasant effort. Top weight and a complex gate may be demanding situations however she can’t be neglected. 2.
Asiago from the Godolphin camp appears an improving type and might nicely excel over the extra floor
however, she’s executed well sufficient in her trials and instead consist of her than brush aside.
How to play it: Just Jessie E/W.
Race the four – 7.45PM CANTERBURY NIGHT SPRINT SERIES HEAT 1 (1100 METRES)
2. All Too Royal has looked to have his rivals on toast in his Sydney runs simplest to be outgunned
on the road after appearing to have each risk. It is probably a case of taking him on accepting as true with that he
desires to be a winner because on paper he has this race at his mercy if he does need it. Drawn well,
have to get the run of the race and is entitled, for mine, to position it away.
Dangers: three. Fox Swift is the logical risk on the sparkling side because triumphing at the Kensington song
returned in October coming from last. Drawn out once more so likely is going again and has the closing shot at
them. Nice sufficient trial out the lower back behind Alizee and have to run well. 7. Wander enjoyed a pleasing
run behind the speed, got out at the right time and held a clear margin winning over this direction
3 weeks back. That was, his quality attempt for a while so if he can repeat it then he’s an excellent chance.
Nine. Marmaris has his first begin as a 3-yr-vintage and become competitive in some handy fields remaining
season. Two trials returned were OK without being standouts however wouldn’t be counting him out.
How to play it: All Too Royal WIN.
