Best Bets – Wednesday 17th April

Schweppes 2yo Fillies

Canterbury race 2 (1250m) 1:25 pm

Lots of unraced fillies in this including the well supported favourite LADY NICKSTER but I nearly always defer to the raced brigade. So, on that basis I like TRAFALGAR SQUARE. She’s had 3 runs, 2 of them this time up in better company and I just think she looks well placed and maps to get a glorious run from this draw. Quinella her with the fav also.

James squire 2YO Males

Canterbury race 3 (1250m) 2:20 pm

Oh, you just have to wonder what they are doing at Chris Waller Racing. Stable’s top rider Jay mac is on the unraced GREAT WHITE SHARK, while the one who has raced and shown talent, IMPERIAL FORCE had Nash on board. Maybe that’s because they want to get a better price for Imperial Force by confusing punters. Either way, I’m sticking with my theory of raced horses do better so I’m on Nash. I will quinella them.

Canterbury race 4 (1550m) 2:35 pm

A gut-buster out in front at this level when 2nd up should make HUESCA mighty hard to beat here. He’s trained by Gai and Adrian and they get their front-runners rock hard for assignments like this. I see him pulling away with 600m to go establishing a big winning break and hanging on from TOESONTHENOSE. That’s my quinella bet but I really think Huesca runs them off their legs.

Canterbury Race 6 (1250m) 3:45 pm

Group horses returning from spells in midweek races is a recipe for success normally. CAPTAIN AMELIA is that hot horse here. She won first up last prep then stepped up to Group company in Melbourne and was always thereabouts. Big push for her today. Quinella her with this unbeaten filly BRIASA.

BM64 3YO Fillies

Caulfield race 6 (1200m) 3:55 pm

Fascinating race. Craig Williams has been riding the very well tried SHE’S BULLETPROOF in recent races yet has jumped off to ride a filly he has never ridden in a race called LIGHT WISH. Love him or hate him, his team aren’t bad judges and I’m following his lead. But, the money keeps coming in for the other filly. Will be interesting so quinella them.
