Canberra Tips February 5


Canberra Best Bet - Race 2 No. 6 Speedzone

Stepping up to the 2000m following a tough Kembla Grange victory is this four-year-old from the John Thompson stable and back to Country level in a thin Set Weights Class 1, there's no reason he can't go on with it now.

The son of Eurozone has been building throughout this campaign well, whacking away second-up on a Heavy track behind Solar Apex who had city Maiden form leading into that and in his most recent appearance, placed at Benchmark 70 level at Flemington.

Covering ground from a wide alley and sustaining a long run from off the pace, it was a big win by Speedzone on January 16 and with subsequent provincial winners in Cabarita and Prompt Prodigy coming out of that race along with Narrated (placed in a city Maiden), the form is stacking up nicely.


Canberra Favourite - Race 5 No. 2 Brothers Of Antrim

It's a somewhat competitive Class 1 with differing form lines, but showing professionalism in a debut win and mapping for well here at start two is this three-year-old from the local Doug Gorrell yard, who can progress further on Friday.

Running into Dreamline, a short favourite who was coming off a midfield finish in town, Brothers Of Antrim settled well in the box-seat via that 1000m contest and knuckling down to chase hard, was able to reel in his more experienced rival late with that duo clearing out by more than five lengths on third.

That Maiden rated very well for that January 22 program and now stepping up to what looks a more favourable 1200m trip along with drawing barrier two, jockey Mathew Cahill can potentially even take up the running given the lack of speed on paper.


Canberra Next Best Bet - Race 8 No. 4 Port Douglas

This ex-Bjorn Baker runner moved to Canberra trainer Matthew Dale after just two runs for the big Warwick Farm operation and the stable debut was excellent on December 29, receiving no luck in a third-place over the 1300m on this circuit.

Drawing barrier 10 on that occasion, Port Douglas didn't quite have the required early dash from the gates to overcome the wide alley where as a result, was forced to cover ground and attempt a long run from the rear, peaking on the effort over the concluding stages.

Two January winners have been produced from that event, so the form is okay and with the benefit here of an inside alley along with senior hoop Keagan Latham now taking the reins, there is more in the corner of this four-year-old on Friday who should be going close off that last performance.
