Canterbury Tips May 26

TAB HANDICAP Tips (Race 5)

Canterbury Best Bet - Race 5 No. 4 Derbari

While he admittedly doesn't win out of turn, with just the 15 starts to his name and showing that he was up to Saturday class last winter with a pair of placings at 78 level, this gelding is more than capable of improving that record.

Being a full brother to last years Wakeful winner, Victoria Quay, the breeding suggests Derbari should get over further and he will deeper into this campaign, however, he has been super competitive when kept to the sprint trips over his last few campaigns.

1000m was too short on resumption at Warwick Farm, an event where he was also in the worst part of the track, but barrier two around Canterbury is generally a big plus and he's expected to improve second-up over the 1250m.


Canterbury Next Best Bet - Race 6 No. 1 Montserrat

Although he's drawn out, there'll likely be aggressive early tactics employed by 3kg claimer Tyler Schiller, who will roll across to either lead or sit outside the early favourite Vigorous Flow, who has the blinkers on.

Like many of the Mark Newnham gallopers do when building early, Montserrat hasn't necessarily smacked the line first or second-up, but stuck on fairly for third last start behind a dominant Prince Of Arragon, who completed a winning hat-trick last Saturday in Brisbane.

Despite having to carry an extra 2kg compared to his last third-up assignment, there was more quality in that Hawkesbury field he defeated in November and with his subsequent consistent form at 72 level, is well placed back in grade here.


Canterbury Value Bet - Race 7 No. 11 Karmazone

This lightly raced five-year-old has always shown ability and while his last few preparations have been a little frustrating overall, he's not hopeless in the last from Canterbury, providing they can make ground late in the day.

Karmazone has had two starts on this circuit, the first of those being a second-up effort last spring when closing off well for third behind Kirwan's Lane, who has since won three more in town including two at 88 level, which is rungs above this sort of company.

He was caught wide when stepping from 1400m to 1900m via that latest effort, but freshened-up and back to 1550m with a nice May 11 trial in-between, this gelding may just be sneaking under the guard a little at decent odds in the early markets.

Karmazone had excuses second-up but off a good trial and back in trip, has some claims in the last.
