Canterbury Tips June 23


Canterbury Value Bet - Race 2 No. 2 Bend The Knee

Thin fields and just a six-race program at Canterbury makes it a little tricky to narrow in on a value selection, but venturing to the two-year-old Maiden which looks quite an open affair, we'll look for a result this colt.

Prepared by John O'Shea who has a 20% winning strike rate from his last 100 runners, Bend The Knee has caught the eye in his two most recent trials where his work, especially after the line has been most impressive when balancing up late.

By Snitzel and out of a dual stakes-winning mare in Kneeling (a Listed winner on a Heavy 10), his breeding suggests the wet track shouldn't be an issue and although snagged back early in his recent hit-out's, they don't need to be as negative from gate four here.


Canterbury Next Best Bet - Race 4 No. 1 Onemore Sapphire

A very honest galloper from the Tracey Bartley stable in Wyong, there was good money for Onemore Sapphire via his attempt over this track and trip on June 9, an event that this five-year-old arguably should've won.

Swap the runs with the eventual winner (Rules Don't Apply) or even if this gelding is a pair closer on settling, you get a different result via that latest performance and that quinella was starting to clear out from the rest of the field late.

Suitably drawn out a little more in gate six as he was held-up a shade early in the run home a fortnight back, gun hoop Nash Rawiller will be keen to make amends on this galloper, who will relish the Soft 7/Heavy 8 conditions at Canterbury on Wednesday.


Canterbury Best Bet - Race 5 No. 9 Eight Diamonds

While this three-year-old is taking on more seasoned rivals for this return assignment, she does look the one in this line up with genuine upside whereas most of her rivals do appear to be right at their mark via Benchmark 72 level.

A superbly bred filly by Sebring and out of the dam Elusive Leone (half-sister to Star Witness and Nostradamus), Eight Diamonds ran slick time for the January 22 program at Canterbury when breaking her Maiden comfortably before a forgivable effort on February 17.

Rearing at the start and losing considerable ground as a result, the half-sister to Group winner Vulpine made good ground on what was a Soft 7 while off a June 11 trial which was arguably a little stronger than her February hit-out, she can bounce back here.

Onemore Sapphire should've won a fortnight ago and with a slightly more positive steer, he can make amends in Race 4.
