|Where||Canterbury Park Racecourse – King St, Canterbury NSW 2193|
|When||Wednesday, March 30, 2022|
|First Race||1:45pm AEDT|
Metropolitan racing in Sydney on Wednesday has been transferred from Warwick Farm to Canterbury Park due to the state of the track. HorseBetting’s Nicholas Lloyd brings you his best bets and quaddie numbers for the eight-race program, which is set to start at 1:45pm AEDT. The track is rated a Heavy 10 and the rail is in the true position, while drying weather across Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday should help the track improve.
Best Bet at Canterbury – The Art Of Flying
One horse we highlighted a few weeks ago in The Follow Files was the Ciaron Maher & David Eustace-trained The Art Of Flying. The three-year-old gelding by Flying Artie was first-up off a long break in the $750,000 Inglis Sprint behind Overpass and Spellcatcher on March 5 at Flemington where he closed off very strongly from the back to run third. In his five career starts, he is yet to win, but his four placings have come behind Sneaky Five, Anamoe, Sharp Response and Overpass, while on the only occasion that he missed the minor money, he was 6.5 lengths behind Paulele. That is some serious form for a Wednesday, plus the booking of James McDonald and the good barrier (6) only add to his winning credentials. He should be able to break through.
Next Best at Canterbury – Reggiewood
Gerald Ryan & Sterling Alexiou now train former Hong Kong-based galloper Reggiewood. The five-year-old gelding has had two starts in Australia, running third when first-up and then winning in fine style on the Kensington track on February 2. Since that win eight weeks ago, the stable has sent the son of Redwood back to the trials where he went around behind Alligator Blood and Arranmore on February 21. He will carry plenty of residual fitness from his last two starts, so the 1900m should not be too much of a concern for the last-start 1800m winner. He drops 1kg off that win, he’s drawn to do no work from barrier six under Jay Ford and he won with plenty in hand last time out, so we are happy to be with him.
Next Best Again at Canterbury – Standing Order
In the opener, Peter & Paul Snowden will saddle up two-year-old colt Standing Order in a 2YO Maiden Handicap over 1200m. The son of Merchant Navy was defeated on debut by Williamsburg, who is a subsequent Group 3 winner, before running seventh in the Group 3 Black Opal at Canberra. He stays at 1200m on Wednesday and should be able to take up the lead from barrier seven under Tommy Berry like he did on debut. The Heavy 10 track is a query, but that is the case for each and every runner in this field, especially with a number of first starters. He can break his maiden status in this.
