|Canterbury Park Racecourse – King St, Canterbury NSW 2193
|Friday, December 8, 2023
The summer series of racing continues at Canterbury Park on Friday night with a competitive eight-race program set for decision. The rail moves out +4m for the entire circuit, and with sunny skies forecast across the region in the lead-up, the track should be rated a Good 4 for the evening. The opening race is scheduled to get underway at 6pm AEDT.
Best Bet: Monte Kate
Monte Kate returned to trackwork at Warwick Farm on November 8 for the Robert & Luke Price barn, leading all the way to score by 2.5 lengths. She then went on to salute once again at Kembla Grange on November 27, revelling in her front-running role to win by 1.3 lengths. Adam Hyeronimus takes the reins for her debut, and with similar tactics in mind, Monte Kate will be attempting to make every post a winner.

Next Best: Newfoundland
Formerly trained in Ireland by Joesph O’Brien, Newfoundland will make his Australian debut for the Gai Waterhouse & Adrian Bott yard. The lightly raced five-year-old only had eight starts prior to his arrival — most recently on on July 1 at Curragh, where the son of Deep Impact failed to stay over 3200m. His two jump-outs suggest Newfoundland will be ready to go first-up, and with the stable happy to kick off the campaign at 1900m, we’re happy to follow him into this BM72 contest.
Race 4 –
5yo Gelding | T: Gai Waterhouse & Adrian Bott | J: Tim Clark (58kg)
Best Value: Captain Furai
Captain Furai impressed at the barrier trials after undergoing a gelding operation, cruising through the wire at Randwick on November 28. The three-year-old took a sit in behind the speed, and Kerrin McEvoy asked the question, Captain Furai obliged to secure a runner-up finish. This guy might not be the finished article just yet, but we’re happy to find out as he makes his debut in the opener — and we’re getting great odds with the top racing betting sites.
