Canterbury Racing Tips For 15.11.2019 - Is this Starla's last chance?

The Sydney night season is back where Canterbury hosts an eight race program on Friday.

Fine conditions are expected and the track is rated at a Good 4.

Canterbury Best Bet

Race 2 No. 9 Starla

It's d-day for this filly from the Chris Waller yard stepping up to a trip she's seemingly been searching for.

She comes out of a third placing in a high rating maiden on November 5 that went around two lengths faster than the benchmark 70 over seven furlongs on that same card.

Prior to that, she'd just missed as a short priced favourite over shorter journeys and gave every indication in that she was searching for more ground.

From barrier three with Brenton Avdulla taking the reins, she's capable of settling much handier in the run and will be at peak fitness now as the best bet at Canterbury.

Canterbury Next Best Bet

Race 4 No. 2 Soldier Of Love

This four-year-old has been working towards a victory all campaign and finds a very winnable assignment via this benchmark race.

Last time out on November 5 at Kensington, he wasn't far off reeling in the in-form Jazzland who rates well above anything in this field and they put a good space on third.

Perhaps looking for more ground which was my only knock staying at the 1550m but he is capable of taking up a close position from an inside alley which is important in these small middle distance fields.

Rachael King sticks and this Bjorn Baker trained gelding should get every chance.

Canterbury Best Each Way

Race 6 No. 1 Alison Of Tuffy

She's been very consistent all preparation has this mare by Manhattan Rain that dropped back to the provincials for a very soft win last start on October 26.

Prior to that she had been beaten only a few lengths combined in a few deeper fields than this and has placed twice from both attempts on this circuit.

Maps for a nice midfield trail under Keagan Latham again who does have a good association with this mare having won his last two steers on her.

Does have to carry weight which she hasn't before but it's still only over six furlongs and as the ratings suggest, it's not a strong race.
