Canterbury Tips January 29


Canterbury Best Bet - Race 2 No. 1 Kaptive

In what looks to be a race of two, we'll lean the way of this gelding who is taking on a field of younger rivals via the second from Canterbury, where he does appear better suited by the extra furlong of this Maiden.

Trained by the in-form partnership of Michael, Wayne & John Hawkes, who are striking at 29% in January, Kaptive was luckless second-up as a $1.40 favourite at Wyong where he was held-up and spotting them a big start rounding that tight circuit, rattling home for second when finally getting out late.

While we're respecting the favourite Comporta, who can improve, she was entitled to offer a lot more at start two when dictating proceedings and with a good prior fresh effort behind a very smart one in April Rain, the son of Dawn Approach has a platform to launch off now.


Canterbury Next Best Bet - Race 5 No. 3 Easy Campese

Like most John Sargent runners, Easy Campese is likely to improve off whatever he does here fresh but at the early odds available, the value is at least there for the risk on what could easily be the best horse in this field going forward.

After showing some promise over his first preparation, he continually improved throughout the next campaign which included a fourth-place finish via the Listed Dulcify, where he should've run second to Mo'unga, who is one of the more promising three-year-old's in the country.

Returning now as a gelding and with two solid January trials under his belt, including a big win at Gosford at the most recent showing, jockey Regan Bayliss can camp outside the favourite Vreneli (still in his first preparation) and sprint home in the small field.


Canterbury Roughie - Race 6 No. 9 Undoubted

While the overall strike rate doesn't reflect it, this five-year-old is a better galloper than the low rating suggests and has somewhat taken the next step following a big Class 1 win at end of September before being spelled.

Fresh off an outstanding ride on Australia Day when steering Skymax to a Listed win, jockey Robbie Dolan now takes the reins on Undoubted, a runner that will be suited if the track is a Soft 6 or worst and we're looking for them be a little more positive now third-up and over this longer trip.

The son of Not A Single Doubt was well backed ($18-$12) when resuming in this grade on January 6 and grabbed third on the line before staying at 1300m second-up at Wyong, where he was completely unsuited attempting a wide run from the rear off a slow speed.


Canterbury Value Bet - Race 8 No. 9 Revitup Rednut

Now third-up and to 1550m, it's close to D-Day for Kaptive in Race 2 from Canterbury following a luckless second-up run.

At the price and now gelded, I was happy to chance the arm on the returning Campese in Race 5.

At huge odds in the sixth, Undoubted shouldn't be dismissed.
