Canterbury Racing Tips For January 22 2020 - Has the April Rain come early?

Midweek Sydney racing heads to Canterbury where fine conditions are expected.

The rail shifts out to the 6m position and the track is currently in the Soft 6 range.

Canterbury Best Bet

Race 1 No. 1 April Rain

* April Rain was scratched at 7.19am on 22/01/2019.

Canterbury Next Best Bet

Race 2 No. 9 Cathars

The resumption from this Godolphin gelding can be forgiven at Warwick Farm on January 8.

After being behind the eight ball early after a tardy getaway, he did manage to tack on enough to be within striking distance rounding the turn for home.

From there on is where it got messy as he was behind a wayward Garrison and then as soon as the run briefly looked to appear, it was closed by the stablemate Charles Seven at a key stage. 

Blinkers have now been applied to Cathars who's better placed with the step up in distance and did run into Yes, Yes, Yes then Castelvecchio last time in when still learning the caper.

Canterbury Best Value Bet

Race 7 No. 8 Super Longlea

Whilst this filly doesn't fit our usual intention for a value bet, she is at a back-able price in the the 'Get Out Stakes'.

She won her debut back in July of 2019 in good time for that card before being tipped out and resuming with a fighting fresh victory at benchmark 64 level in November.

Has had excuses in her two efforts since from wide barriers which includes the January 8 attempt following a freshen-up where after jumping well, lost the tactical advantage required from the poor alley compared to the first two home.

Super Longlea strips fitter and with the blinkers going on for the first time from a plum gate, she is more than capable of bouncing back here.

Forget Cathar's fresh run who gets the blinkers for this second-up assignment.
