Canterbury Tips – June 24
RACE PREVIEWS 🧐
Race 4 – 3:10PM RANVET POWER HANDICAP (1550 METRES)
He has won four of 11 on rain affected tracks which puts ASSAULT ‘N’ BATHORY (No.2) at a distinct advantage in this event. The Murtajill gelding is in top form of late, finishing top-three at his past four starts. Two starts back, he took on similar company here over this trip and on a Heavy 9, finished third behind Chocolatier. Then last start, he was sent out a short-priced favourite in the Merimbula Jazz Cup at the Sapphire Coast. He led on settling but couldn’t hold out the challenge from Jarrett and had to settle for second prize that day. His last win was at Canberra four starts back where he destroyed a BM70 field over the mile, putting more than four lengths on them on a Soft 7 track while carrying 60.5kgs. He is a more than capable six-year-old and has Nash Rawiller back aboard today. The last time Rawiller sat on his back, it ended in victory at Rosehill where he won a Class 2 by nearly three lengths (on a Heavy 9). He has webbed feet when it comes to wet tracks and he looks ideally-placed here.
Race 6 – 4:20PM CALYX @ COOLMORE AUSTRALIA HANDICAP (1900 METRES)
Improving with every start this preparation, the Joe Pride-trained MONASTERIO (No.8) could improve enough here to give this a real shake at good odds. The Savabeel gelding finished unplaced at his first two runs back from a four-week let-up. Then last start, he made the step up from 1550m to the 1900m journey and looked more comfortable as he led from barrier rise. His downfall appeared to be the cracking pace he set and in the run home he still had something to give, only it wasn’t enough to prevent Lady Highly and Chilly Cha Cha from finishing ahead of him in the run to the line. Conditions are almost identical here where he meets similar company on the same track over the same distance and it will be wet out there today. Kerrin McEvoy remains in the saddle and if he is allowed to dictate the race again, he could steal it at good odds today. He looks the best each-way ticket of the day.
