Canberra Tips March 7


Canberra Value Bet - Race 3 No. 8 Temoin Chaud

Winning her last two starts in her first preparation, the future did look quite bright for this daughter of Star Witness and while she was still competitive last campaign, that next step wasn't taken with a few narrow defeats before being tipped out.

Temoin Chaud looked a different galloper on resumption at Wagga, where despite working early to obtain a position outside the leader, who was well beaten, she provided a good kick late and on the line, it was a very soft victory.

This is admittedly a little harder, but there's no world beaters here while dropping 1.5kg as a lightly raced four-year-old who should still have plenty of upside, she can make her own luck on the speed once more and out to a suitable 1400m, this mare can give a big sight.


Canberra Next Best Bet - Race 5 No. 3 Flat Heaven

Although he wouldn't have beaten the handy Emanate who is an odds-on favourite in a Group race at Randwick on Saturday, this ex-Hong Kong galloper should've finished much closer in that February 20 attempt at Rosehill.

Having his first start in Australia and following an excellent trial when finishing just off Eduardo and Bottega, things just never panned out in that fresh performance where he was checked, saw numerous backsides in the straight and when finally out, it was too late.

Flat Heaven is drawn out and comes back to 1000m, but he can improve on a firmer surface and if Tim Clark can get a back to follow along with a plan to chime in out wider instead of riding for luck, then this gelding can storm over the top late off a good speed.


Canberra Best Bet - Race 6 No. 7 Academy

It's rare to see trainer Mark Newnham have a bad month with the consistent record continuing in February (10 winners at a strike rate of 24%) and third-up, they do look ready to strike with this very honest gelding.

Academy was well placed out to the 1300m second-up after working home well for third behind Tailluer fresh, which is decent enough form considering how she won a Group Three at her very next start, but on a Soft track, which he isn't as effective on, was grabbed on the line in that last outing.

The last time this galloper raced over 1400m on a Good 4 surface, he accounted for two genuine stakes-class runners in Icebath and Criaderas, spotting decent weight to both with a 60kg impost and for the Listed National Sprint on Sunday, he carries only 55kg.
