Canberra Tips December 29


Canberra Best Bet - Race 4 No. 7 Missirose

Jockey Mathew Cahill and the Emma & Lucy Longmire stable combine on Tuesday with this three-year-old who was impressive in a December 18 trial from Goulburn for third when cruising to the line under her own steam (nearly a five-length space to fourth).

The daughter of Smart Missile did look a pretty straight forward type in that hit-out where after jumping well from a wider draw, took a position just off the leading duo and extended well late to be comfortably in front around 100m after the line.

Missirose can roll forward from barrier eight and finding the middle lanes (if need be) which can be favourable on this Canberra a circuit, can breakthrough on debut in what isn't a strong Maiden over the 1000m.


Canberra Next Best Bet - Race 7 No. 3 Hezredhot

The late betting drift ($3.70-$7.00) was a concern prior to his first run for the Garry Kirkup yard and the market proved spot on where after settling off the speed, never looked like figuring and was beaten a long way out.

It's interesting to note that both the trainer and jockey agreed that a near side bubble cheeker (to assist with its tractability) would need to be applied, which it has and like he displayed via his first two starts in Tasmania, that the intention next start would be to take up the lead.

Hezredhot drops in grade for this second-up tilt and despite having his quirks, he clearly has some ability which was evident in his June 21 debut when putting more than a two-length margin on Orange Roughie, who is now a 74-rater in Tasmania where he has won his last five starts.

TAB FEDERAL Tips (Race 8)

Canberra Value Bet - Race 8 No. 1 Gunga Din

Although he admittedly can be somewhat hit or miss, hence the odds, this five-year-old from the strong local Keith Dryden yard is the class galloper of this field and following a little spell, the Warwick Farm return on December 9 was solid.

Gunga Din rattled off some very respectable times in that 1300m effort from the rear (fastest 800-600m/third quickest last 600m) and comes well down in grade here to a Country Benchmark 70 where only he and one other galloper are at that rating (or above).

This gelding generally needs to that bit of tempo on up front to produce his best and with Axion along with Successful Day looking to work across from out wide to join Nieces and Nephews, he can get some favours in that regard.
