Canberra Tips August 19

TAB Federal Tips (Race 3)

Canberra Best Bet - Race 3 No. 4 Kelvedon Road

Returning on a testing surface isn't easy, although he would've won first-up last winter had he drawn a gate and that was on a Heavy 9.

Kelvedon Road delivered on that early promise over summer, with back-to-back wins to start the prep and wasn't disgraced at listed level.

With more progression as a four-year-old, he could end up in town and has tuned up for this with a slick trial win on a Heavy 10.

Harvey Norman Commercial Handicap Tips (Race 4)

Canberra Value Bet - Race 4 No. 6 Real Salty

This mare hasn't drawn a gate this entire campaign, which has always forced her to settle that few pairs further back than they'd like.

Now jumping from barrier three, Real Salty should be able to tuck in just behind the leaders, who have all drawn to her outside.

Although limited, this four-year-old is going okay and hard fit with four runs under her belt for the prep, she can give this a shake.

CKC Joinery & Stone Handicap Tips (Race 5)

Canberra Next Best Bet - Race 5 No. 1 Fox Valley

This is a shocking maiden, where there's only two horses with any exposed form and they've both failed on testing ground previously.

If the money comes for first starter Fox Valley, then he's just about the only angle here, a gelding that was very strong late in a Kembla trial.

Jockey Rory Hutchings is in fine form, with 24 winners from his last 100 rides and he often finds the fast lanes on these wet tracks.
