Canterbury Tips – February 14
Race 4 – 7:45PM THE AGENCY REAL ESTATE HANDICAP (1900 METRES)
I’m weary of Mountain Breath and Peace Of Mind here but think the omen bet, DYLAN’S ROMANCE, can lead all the way on Valentine’s Day. The top two in betting have never raced on a Heavy track, and while Dylan’s Romance has only two wins from eight attempts, his record on Heavy is better than it looks. Three of those failures were in his first three starts over short trips and one was at the end of a long second preparation before he went for a spell.
The two Heavy wins to his name are over Amerock in a 2000m BM78 at Rosehill and over Tunero in a 1900m BM70 at Canterbury. Last start, Dylan’s Romance ran a personal best going 10.2 lengths quicker than standard BM when finishing 3.6 lengths from She’s Ideel at Randwick. The slight drop back in trip suits here, and he’s a three-time winner at the track.
Race 6 – 8:45PM BISLEY WORKWEAR HANDICAP (1100 METRES)
Blinkers go back on SIR ELTON second-up and he should take plenty of improvement from his first run this time in where he battled gamely to finish 1.6 lengths from Pandemic. He won his only start on a Heavy 9 defeating Gimme Shelter and Dio D’oro who excels on Heavy ground. The wide gate is his main obstacle, but it’s only 1100m around Canterbury and there’s just one bend to negate, and by the time Race 6 comes around, being three wide on the bend may not be a bad thing.
