We have free tips, form and odds for all eight races at Canterbury this Wednesday and punters can use their bet boost with for better odds. welcome package

Race 1 – Maiden Plate (1550m)

Kaonic is from the Chris Waller stable and it was a good performance on debut at Warwick Farm. The well-bred son of Savabeel finished third behind Sparky Lad at odds of $7 and it should be shorter for this. It’s an easier field and Hugh Bowman takes the ride.

Stablemate Smiling Manolito wasn’t expected to win on debut at Newcastle when sent out at $17, but it exceeded expectations. The son of High Chaparral is bred to stay, but it found the 1400m easy last start and it will improve with more time and distance. Expect another solid performance and betting will indicate its chances.

Race 1 tip: Kaonic to win at

Race 2 – BM74 Handicap (1550m)

Dortmund isn’t the most consistent types for the Waterhouse/Bott team, but it should find this easier than its last start. The speedy four-year-old was a brilliant winner at Geelong two starts back when winning by 3.25 lengths, but it failed to fire as a $3.60 chance at Rosehill. It has placed on this track so expect quick improvement.

Intueri has more ability than it has shown this campaign. The Hawkes-trained gelding won its maiden at Kembla Grange last year before running second behind Fragonard to kick off its 2017 campaign. Two starts since haven’t been impressive, but it ran against the likes of Malahat last start and this is easier. Chance here.

Race 2 tip: Intueri to win at

Race 3 – BM68 Handicap (1200m)

Renewal was well-backed to score on debut and it gave punters what they wanted. The Hawkes-trained three-year-old was backed in from $3.60 to $2.60 and it scored a classy victory at Newcastle. It had the inside draw on that occasion and it has been gifted another rails alley for this. Expect Renewal to be well fancied again.

Solar Patch had every chance to win last start, but it ran into a smart type in Demerara. The Gary Moore-trained gelding has form behind the likes of Property, Shogun Sun and Super Ex, so facing a midweek field shouldn’t be a problem. Only concern is Tim Clark jumping off its back.

Race 3 tip: Renewal to win at

Race 4 – BM75 Handicap (1900m)

History Repeats has plenty of talent as it showed last start when winning at Hawkesbury. The Waterhouse/Bott-trained four-year-old mare scored by almost a length and that capped off some consistent form behind some nice types including I Thought So and Sweet Deal. This looks right up its alley again.

Rosettas Whey doesn’t set the world alight, but it produced a strong finish behind Alliterate last start and that’s solid form here. The Gerald Ryan-trained five-year-old was a winner prior to that at Wyong and it’s a consistent type which can win at this level with the speed on up front.

Race 4 tip: History Repeats to win at

Race 5 – BM70 Handicap (1250m)

Stonebrook looks to have plenty of potential after remaining unbeaten from its first two starts. The four-year-old son of Hinchinbrook won well at Hawkesbury on debut before backing that up with another win last start at Kembla Grange. This grade will test its real ability, but there is only one last start winner in the field so consider as a winning chance.

Marsupial drops back to midweek grade after showing little in town. The James Cummings-trained colt was highly-touted after competing in the Black Opal Stakes and Heritage Stakes, but it has won only one from six starts. There’s no doubting that this is a much easier target and it should be putting lengths on this field, but has the confidence taken too much of a hit?

Race 5 tip: Marsupial to win at

Race 6 – BM76 Handicap (1900m)

Estikhraaj is usually close to the pace and Hugh Bowman riding is a positive. The Waller-trained six-year-old was a 1.5-length winner at Canterbury two starts back before going awfully close on the same track last start. It doesn’t have a problem carrying big weights and there are no superstars in this field so it could capitalise.

Savapinski has looked impressive winning three of its first four starts, but the real test comes now. The daughter of Savabeel has won its last two races as the $1.35 favourite, but punters should get better odds against a higher-class field. It makes its own luck out in front and that could work well in a big field. Watch the market for significant movement.

Race 6 tip: Savapinski to win at

Race 7 – BM77 Handicap (1100m)

Beacon is an impressive animal which was too slick for them at Canterbury last start. The Cummings-trained runner won by 1.5 lengths over Workdrinks at Canterbury and that form should hold up well at this level. It used the rails to its advantage and drawing barrier one is ideal for this. The light weight helps against this hot field and it should go close.

Khan will appreciate running at midweek to get its confidence back. The Snowden-trained three-year-old was a winner on debut in the Breeders’ Plate this time last year before running poorly in the Silver Slipper and Black Opal Stakes. It has more potential than many of these and if the money comes for it, we suggest climbing on board.

Race 7 tip: Khan to win at

Race 8 – BM76 Handicap (1200m)

Slow Burn was a stellar four-length winner on debut before running two solid races in defeat. The Les Bridge-trained mare faces another rise in class which won’t make it easy, but there’s plenty of confidence around with this runner and they usually perform well in a fresh state.

Stablemate Zonk also has good talent and it’s another in a fresh state. The I Am Invincible mare finished second on debut behind In Times of War before winning at Gosford. It was well-backed at its last two starts in defeat, but they were solid efforts up in grade and dropping down in weight helps for this. Each way chance.

Race 8 tip: Slow Burn to win at
