What Canterbury Races
Where Canterbury Park Racecourse – King St, Canterbury NSW 2193
When Wednesday, February 1, 2023
First Race 2:20pm AEDT

Racings heads to Canterbury Park Racecourse on Wednesday afternoon for a competitive seven-race program. The rail moves out +8m the entire circuit after the course has seen plenty of racing over the past month or so. The track is currently rated a Good 4; however, there is some rain forecast in the lead up, so there’s a possibility of a downgrade. The first race is set to get underway at 2:20pm AEDT.

Best Bet: Hollywood Hero

Hollywood Hero should be a big improver here second-up for the Bjorn Baker yard, and we’re happy to make him the best of the day in the third race at Canterbury. His first appearance had plenty of merit with a perfect run in behind the speed at Canterbury on January 1 and was hitting the line strongly. It was a perfect ride by Dylan Gibbons on that occasion and we think fitness was the only thing that meant he went under by a length behind Toronomica. He’s had a month between runs and an impressive tick-over trial in between that suggested he can go well again on Wednesday afternoon. James McDonald takes the reins this time and despite the wide draw, should be looking to be positive on this son of Sacred Falls to find a good position before getting bye some unraced contenders that has upside as well. We’re thinking Hollywood Hero has plenty of upside as well.

Next Best: Beauty Crusade

Beauty Crusade is another maiden galloper that looks ready to win on Wednesday afternoon after two outstanding efforts in his opening campaign. Ron Quinton has been placing this three-year-old gelding really well with two strong maidens at Wyong and Randwick respectively; and now finds a softer maiden to break the duck for this son of Invader. His effort behind Pink Baroque really caught the eye from well back in the field to hit the line full of running. Stepping up in trip to the 1580m looks ideal and from a nice draw should see Beauty Crusade get his best opportunity to find the winners enclosure this preparation. Andrew Adkins has taken him around on both his race starts and elects to stick, for good reason too, because this looks his chance to get a good run-in transit to break through.

Best Value: Recommendation

The final race on the program looks like a very competitive BM64 and we think the form of Recommendation reads very well for this. The first-up run behind Think About it at Warwick Farm on January 11 was a tough front running effort, clinging on for third position by 1.5 lengths. The winner subsequently has been to the races and won in Saturday company, so the form has seemingly stacked well moving forward. The more we look at this race, the more it becomes apparent there’s a severe lack of speed in this contest, so the wide barrier for Recommendation is of no concern for punters. Tim Clark will be looking to ping the lids and lead them all the way to finish off the Canterbury program and we’re getting a good price with online bookmakers to find out.

Best Value

Race 7 – #1 Recommendation (13)
