Canberra Best Bets, Betting Predictions & Preview - Friday, August 9

Canberra is racing this Friday and we're anticipating a quality meeting in the nation's capital.

This is an eight-race card on the all-weather track which gives some horses a different feeling in the run.

Race 4 No.4 – Successful Day

Successful Day will be well fancied for this race heading back onto the Synthetic surface.

Heading into this race fourth-up in his first preparation, she will be nice and fit with plenty of improvement to come.

Two starts ago at this track and distance, she had excuses on the day but still was game enough to run a placing. Last start she faced a heavy track at Albury where she was very good without winning.

Stepping back to the 1280m on the Synthetic track is nothing but a positive for her, and the retention of Richard Bensley will ensure she is given every chance throughout from the decent draw.

Race 5 No. 7 – Reign Over Me

Rob Potter takes over the training of this mare who was formerly with the Barbara-Jones training partnership. 

Reign Over Me comes into this race after a good run at this track over the 1750m. The step up to the 1900m is going to be beneficial for her as she looks to put the sword to a few of her rivals from her previous start.

She will come into this contest on her fifth run this preparation, which boasts well for her stepping up in distance. Her rivals from last start are weighted worse off which gives her a good advantage with her staying at the same weight and finishing in front of them previously.

Adrian Layt sticks with her and from a kinder draw, she will sit closer in the run and will be harder to run down when the whips are cracking.
