Best Bets – Wednesday 3rd July

Canterbury Race 1 (1200m) 12:50 pm

It really is a bit of a mystery and lottery, tipping babies on very heavy ground, but they will all try so perhaps the best of them, especially in the first race, is what you look for. And I think this Unite and Conquer filly SHE CONQUERS is that horse. Sure, the ever-consistent, CINSAULT represents a real threat but on debut in a similar race She Conquers was very unlucky yet hit the line like a smart horse in the making to grab 3rd. Quinella them.

He has 60kg to lump around but I just love a front-runner coming back a little in trip. And in O’ZIGGY we get a very fit horse who is doing just that on a wet-as-all-hell track. He can handle the mud too. Plenty of support overnight for the rising filly AUTUMNATION and that hasn’t been lost on me so I will quinella them but I just sense O’ziggy is too seasoned in the mud.

I’ve been waiting for this mare DIAMOND MODEL to race again. Was a good thing beaten when 3-wide all the way last start when 2nd up. Fitter now, looks in career-best form and I think she’s a good thing despite the money coming for MERCHANT LADY.

If a horse likes to lead and is good in the wet, you get on them when it is muddy. So I’m sticking my neck out on this perpetual failure called NO STATEMENT. He has no option but to jump and run today and by the time this race comes around the track for the back-markers will be horrid. So he turns in front and keeps going at juicy odds for us. CHIEF CONDUCTOR can find the line on most days so watch for him late.

this Team hayes galloper BEAST MODE is 2nd up in this and he boasts a strong 2nd up record. Has ability and the booking of Blake Shinn seems significant to me.
