Best Bets – Wed 13th Sept

Darley Hcp 3YO Mdn

Canterbury Race 1 (1250m) 1:25 pm

This filly MAKARENA might be very smart. Has only raced the once for a 2nd placing but there was something about the performance that had stakes grade written all over it. Charged home late from well back. Unless there is something in here with stakes ability too, she should win this midweek maiden comfortably.

Canterbury Race 2 (1900m) 2:00 pm

I’m prepared to give TRAVELLING KATE a second chance here. She was there on the corner to win in town on a Saturday in BM 78 grade last start over 2000m but just wilted the final 150m. This is easier and this is shorter. The 3kg claim means that if they ride her cold she can come swooping home past them all.

Drinkwise 3YO Mdn

Canterbury Race 4 (1100m) 3:10 pm

If I’m correct about Makarena in the other 3YO maiden, then I’m all over this girl LOST in this. The Godolphin filly on debut was 4th last start in that race Makarena was 2nd in, and this after sitting three wide all the way. Should strip considerably fitter and looks to have a lot of talent. Should also sit off speed with cover and can finish hard from KUNDALINI.

This TASHI is smart especially at midweek level and is in form but gee giving this tough little filly SWEET BABY BOOM 6kg is going to be hard. She is on the rise and I suspect she might just out-bob Tashi. Quinella them.

Evergreen BM 84 Hcp

Sandown Race 8 (1300m) 4:30 pm

Overnight money must be respected and this Team Freedman horse DUBAI POET has been backed significantly. At 9am he was still at $6.60 but had tumbled in $3. Was b eaten 3 lengths when 9th last start when resuming in Saturday grade. Fitter now.
