The Punters Guide returns after a good day yesterday, with multiple winners. We have a strong list of competitive races for the Canterbury Punters Guide today – lets pick the diamonds from the quartz. Our last guide can be found HERE

Race 1 – #THERACES HANDICAP 1250m

God Of Thunder is the top rated horse in the opener at Canterbury today. Tommy Berry has the ride and while this is not an easy field, God Of Thunder maps very well for this race. Coming in fresh on a short layoff – will have residual fitness, and is at the right distance today. Last first-up attempt wasn’t so great, when finishing a long eighth, but, much better is expected today. Altair can’t be overlooked here either. Bowman and Waller combine here for a ride that is in a very competitive field. The slower tempo that is expected will suit Altair, and, will allow it to stay in striking distance when running from midfield. Expect a bold run. Nicco Lad is the value point here, ran on impressively when fighting with the top rated Wagner last start, and, showed a lot of promise. Second-up today and fitter for last start. Win wouldn’t shock.

Top Pick – God Of Thunder
Next Best – Altair
Longshot/Value – Nicco Lad

TOP PICK
Canterbury Punters Guide

Race 2 – TAB.COM.AU HANDICAP 1250m

This looks like a race that Maggie Miss can win. Impressive barrier trial form, winning both, relatively comfortably without actually hitting top gear. Has a lot of speed, and, the distance is optimal here, one to beat. Competition will be in Press Box, who fell just short on previous attempts, and, finds a field that it can beat if Maggie Miss gets into some trouble in this small field.

Top Pick – Maggie Miss
No next best – No Third Dividend

TOP PICK
Canterbury Punters Guide

Race 3 – EVEREST CARNIVAL HANDICAP 1100m

This race maps as a good dual between Happy Bubbles and Gentle Persuasion. Happy Bubbles gets the nod here, the explosive late speed that Happy Bubbles showed on debut, could be the key difference here as Gentle Persuasion has shown early on that it needs time to wind up, where with Happy Bubbles, the trigger is almost instant. This field is more difficult for Happy Bubbles than what was faced on debut, but, any effort similar to last will be enough here.

Top Pick – Happy Bubbles
No next best – No Third Dividend

Canterbury Punters Guide

Race 4 – ANZ BLOODSTOCK NEWS HANDICAP 1580m

Scream Park is another of the top rated runners here today at Canterbury, ran on very impressively for second last start, running in a very competitive field featuring Gauguin and Falcon Island, and almost got the former at the post. Anything close to last effort will be enough to win this one. Sam Weatherley and Cosmologist are a very handy duo, winning their last effort against a similar field, distance is preferred and will have every chance here. Expect a bold showing. Gretzky is another to look out for at value. At its best, can rattle home. Won at bigger tracks when based in Victoria, now, up in Sydney, has yet to show its best – today could be that day.

Top Pick – Scream Park
Next best – Cosmologist
Longshot/Value – Gretzky

TOP PICK
Canterbury Punters Guide

Race 5 – TAB REWARDS HANDICAP 1900m

Corinth is a progressive type, that, despite the wide, will find it easier to drop off the pace early and get in cover throughout. Distance suits, gets McEvoy in the saddle, and has a good turn of foot late. A win wouldn’t surprise. Scratches has to be included. Last start second over track and distance against a similar field, has McDonald on-board today, who returns form last effort. Rated highly. Fantastic Man and Tye Angland can’t be overlooked here either. Drawn well, dropping in class, and ran a strong race behind White Boots last start over track and distance. Another one at odds that could be value here.

Top Pick – Corinth
Next Best – Scratches
Longshot – Fantastic Man

Race 6 – THE AGENCY REAL ESTATE HANDICAP 1100m

Deity is the one to be on here, dropping in class, coming in on the back of an impressive first up win, and, is ready to replicate that success here. Distance, gun draw and class all suit, Tommy Berry riding only adds to confidence. Excellent Design is one to look out for though, coming in off a lengthy spell, but, winner of last start back on Australia Day, trialed well in the lead up to today, has every chance. Value point here is Leami Astray, who is a horse that can get to the front, and not relent. Has a high motor and a powerful gait, and, is a true chance to win this race.

Top Pick – Deity
Next Best – Excellent Design
Longshot – Leami Astray

Race 7 – ON TOP OF THE WORLD SPRINT 1100m

Za Zi ba was a last start winner for the punters guide – and, there is nothing to suggest that Sam Weatherley can’t double up for us here against a field that maps well for the All Too Hard mare. Distance suits and weight isn’t too much, expect a bold run. Coruscate is the next best here. Second-up and yet to win second-up. Winner last start by a small margin, but, finds the right distance, winner at this track, and retains winning jockey form last start win. Ticks a lot of boxes. Fuel starts today after a small spell, comes in at good distance, and drops in class. Has the ability and a win wouldn’t shock.

Top Pick – Za Zi Ba
Next Best – Coruscate
Longshot – Fuel

TOP PICK

Race 8 – AUSTRALIAN TURF CLUB HANDICAP 1250m

Metamorphic is just one of those horses that is hard to go against. Last start was ultra impressive when bursting through the field to narrowly miss the win. Distance suits today, drawn well and will be able to ride in cover throughout. Expect a bold run. Wagner was an impressive winner last start, and, will have a tougher task here today. Class is a little more competitive than last, and has drawn an awkward gate. Will need a lot of luck to not get caught wide, if it can, will be right in it. Common Purpose is a strong runner, and, despite Hugh Bowman being booked on Metamorhpic, Sam Weatherley is the in-form jockey right now and can get the job done. Common Purpose has the ability here and will have every chance to complete the quadrella of wins today.

Top Pick – Metamorphic
Next Best – Wagner
Longshot – Common Purpose

The Punters Guide returns to where it was rebooted not too long ago – the Canterbury race track. With some small fields, and a few competitive races – lets pick the diamonds from the quartz. Backing up from a decent day at Lismore.

Race 1 – TAB.COM.AU HANDICAP 1100m

Small field here with nothing interesting about it at all. Three horse race, with a clear standout as the betting market reflects. Kerron McEvoy on the Lees trained Miss Fabulous should be too good for this field. No value here, and, unless crafting a multi – best to just avoid this race.

Top Pick – Miss Fabulous
No next best – No second or third dividend

TOP PICK

Race 2 – EVEREST CARNIVAL ON SALE HANDICAP 1200m

This is a small, but, ultra competitive field here, with what looks like Hugh Bowman and Bubbles”n”Troubles having a two horse battle with Josh Parr and Gentle Persuasion. Gentle Persuasion gets the nod here based off incredible dash home in a near last to first performance, and, not only was it first but, it covered enough ground over the final furlong to beat the field by almost two lengths. One to beat again here. If Bowman is able to get Bubbles’n’Troubles to fire today, we could have a mad dash to the line between the two short priced horses here. However, Bubbles’n’Troubles ran on for a very unimpressive third as favourite last start – and, anything similar to that flat showing, it may not even place here. She’s Furline is the only danger to the top two here, but, both map better for this race.

Top Pick – Gentle Persuasion
Next Best – Bubbles’n’Troubles
No longshot – No Third Dividend

TOP PICK

Race 3 – ATC HONG KONG TOUR SPRINT 1100m

Stephan maps very well for this race, stepping down in grade, getting a weight claim with Sweeney on board and has shown that it knows how to hit the line hard. Very well placed in this field and a win is on the cards today. Tommy Berry has the next best here in Tarabai, winner first up previously and great strike rate at distance. Expect a bold run here today. Power Command is a consistent type that is fresh today, and, enjoys this distance. Can run on strongly, and, will be looking to bolt home over the closing stages. One to watch.

Top Pick – Stephan
Next Best – Tarabai
Longshot – Power Command

TOP PICK

Race 4 – #THERACES HANDICAP 1550m

Falcon Island gets another chance here today. Last effort was that poor it received a stewards inquiry and, has trialed good enough to get approval here today. Big question mark for me into last race was the step up in distance which it clearly did not handle. Has the drop in distance here today and is better for it. Much more competitive effort from Falcon Island expected today. Gaugin scored and impressive win last start, and has multiple wins at this distance. Tommy Berry in the saddle here only improves chances. Darci’s Affair is a talented horse that can definitely stun this field on its day.

Top Pick – Falcon Island
Next Best – Gaugin
Longshot – Darci’s Affair

TOP PICK

Race 5 – AUSTRALIAN TURF CLUB HANDICAP 1200m

Lady I Am was disappointing to not win last start – but, is right in the mix here today. Christian Reith is in the saddle and has drawn a mid barrier and will do well to not get stuck in traffic. Expected to run just off the pace and push on down the straight. One to beat here. Next best is the top weighted Zonk with Rachel Hunt riding. Ran on for two flashy seconds over last two starts and will be looking for one better here against a very beatable field. Will need some luck to keep a dashing Lady I Am at bay. Lady Chaflont was a last start winner, and, did so impressively. Racing anything near that here today will produce a strong win at double digit odds.

Top Pick – Lady I Am
Next Best – Zonk
Longshot – Lady Chaflont

TOP PICK

Race 6 – HYLAND RACE COLOURS HANDICAP 1900m

White Boots scored an impressive win last start, and will be looking to replicate that success, however, it will need to do so from a wide draw. Another impressive runner from the Kim Waugh stables, White Boots has shown great pace and turn of foot over the last furlong to say that it is every chance here today. Fantastic Man drops in class here today and is one to keep safe, has the ability but, has come up just short over last two starts, needs to show something here today. Realise Potential is back out again today after scoring for the punters Guide at $41 odds previously. Retains winning jockey from that ride, and, based off last effort, there is no reason that success can’t be replicated here today in a very open affair.

Top Pick – White Boots
Next Best – Fantastic Man
Longshot – Realise Potential

TOP PICK

Race 7 – RIBCHESTER STANDING AT DARLEY 1250m

Star Of The Seas is the pick of the day here at plus money. Short body of work thus far, but, all three efforts have been impressive, including a strong win last start over the distance in a similar field of runners. Minor step up in grade which shouldn’t be of concern here today. Proved to good for field last start and, should do so again here today. Bull Market is the next best here, winner at distance and has beaten fields better than this. Good start needed to roll on near the front, and, could prove to hard to track down. Image Neat at massive odds wouldn’t shock here either. Winner at distance before and jockey has ridden to a place on one attempt. Not just here to make up numbers and will be competitive.

Top Pick – Star Of The Seas
Next Best – Bull Market
Longshot – Neat Image
