Friday Night Racing – Canterbury Classic Tips 2012

Before the Magic Millions Race Day lights up the Gold Coast on Saturday, race fans are in for a Friday night treat this evening with the 2012 Canterbury Classic taking place in New South Wales, our expert tips for which are listed below.

Jumping at 9:00pm (NSW time) as Canterbury Race 5 tonight, the $100,000 Listed Canterbury BMW Classic (1100m) field is down to just seven hopefuls following the early withdrawal of the Luxbet favourite #8 Stratford.

Stratford was to have the rails run from barrier one and was installed at the top of the Canterbury Classic odds at Luxbet at a quote of $3.40.

Connections of the resuming four-year-old have decided to roll the dice with Stratford first-up and have them racing on Saturday in the $82,000 Magic Millions Class 6 Plate (1200m) on Magic Millions Day.

With Stratford out of the Canterbury Classic the remaining seven hopes all move in one gate and #1 News Alert has shot to the top of the Luxbet markets at a quote of $2.80.

Joe Pride’s seven-year-old certainly has their claims after taking out the listed Razor Sharp Handicap (1200m) at Warwick Farm last-start, but four other runners paying between $4.60 and $6 the Canterbury Classic is really anyone’s to win.

So who are the team tipping to take out the Classic?

2012 Canterbury Classic Tips – Canterbury Race 5 Betting

  • 1st: #7 Mrs Onassis ($5 Luxbet) – Awesome Sydney form with two-from-two coming into this, won by three lengths carrying a 2.5kg more at the track on December 6 then backed up with an honest win at Rosehill on Boxing Day, is in the far gate but in a small field won’t matter, is unbeaten at the Track & Distance (2-2-0-0) and likes a Good track
  • 2nd: #6 Unanimously ($4.60 Luxbet) – Should get a gun run from barrier three with the in-form Tommy Berry in the mount, best Win & Place Rate of the field (72%) which is hard to over looks, has winning form over the track and was far from disgraced when beaten a half-length by two very good horses at the track in Slow conditions on Christmas Eve
  • 3rd: Phenomenal Lass ($4.60 Luxbet) – Better odds than her more-favoured stablemate and Pride thinks she’ll run a cheeky race, hasn’t been seen since October but first-up she can run a good place from the gate (2) with Schofield on
