CANTERBURY

EXPECTED PATTERN – Rail back to the true position here and that usually means inside is the place to be. Setting up the meeting keeping that in mind and certainly sympathetic to horse that look to find those positions in running.

R5 #4 Cosmic Engine – Plenty of time for this horse and think he finds a suitable race to resume in here. The right jockey to make sure he is put into a winning position early and can be very hard to beat from there. Drachenfels is the obvious danger – but  certainly short enough and is drawn awkwardly. Cant knock saving on the quinella.

SUGGESTED BETTING: 3 Units Cosmic Engine @ $3.90 with Sportsbet or Best Fluctuation

R6 #4 Fanning – #5 Golden Organic –  Fanning looks the leader here and ready to peak – gives a sight and the horse to run down. Golden Organic the horse im most interested in – fresh for a new stable – has some real depth to his form and can be strong late – just hoping he holds a challenging position early..

SUGGESTED BETTING: 2 Units Fanning @ $5.50 with Bet365 – 4 Units Golden Organic@ $6.50 with Bet365 (Happy to take $6+ or Best Fluctuation)

R7 #3 The Wasp – #4 Cymbalism – #6 Lady Dane – Three horse play – all at decent odds here – but all with good ability. The Wasp is fitter for the first up run – box seats here and that is a position he excels from – can win. Cymbalism has trialled well – needs a bit of luck in the run but has quality on his side and should be strong late. Lady Dane similarly needs luck in running and should be strong late. Hopefully have all bases coverered here from a position in run perspective.

SUGGESTED BETTING: 2 Units The Wasp @ $7 with Bet365 or Best Fluctuation – 2 Units Cymbalism @ $7 with Bet365 or Best Fluctuation – 2 Units Lady Dane @ $11 with Bet365 or Best Fluctuation
