July Sprint Tips and Betting Preview

Seven talented sprinters have been confirmed in the final field for Saturday’s July Sprint (1100m) at Canterbury Racecourse; offering punters exceptional value from a betting standpoint and several key opportunities to place a winning wager.

Brook Road ($2.60) is yet to find much of a consistent run of form through her four competitive starts this time, but remains outright favourite in 2015 July Sprint betting markets at Ladbrokes.com.au ahead of Zaratone ($3.20) and Kencella ($3.40).

Will Brook Road justify favouritism and return to the winner’s circle in the 2015 July Sprint or will one of her talented rivals find the line in the clear?

1st

Kencella ($3.40)

Kencella has been transferred to the care of sprinting specialist Joe Pride for his 2015 Spring Carnival campaign, has been confirmed to be partnered by leading hoop James McDonald and offers great value for money in 2015 July Sprint betting markets. Posting six wins and two minors through only fifteen career starts so far, the Exceed And Excel gelding was unable to make anything of an impact in two starts for Chris Waller through autumn but should be perfectly suited to the conditions at Canterbury on Saturday, particularly first-up.

2nd

Brook Road ($2.60)

The Kris Lees-trained Brook Road is more than capable of success in the July Sprint, but probably doesn’t deserve to be favourite for the race following her last start seventh in the TAB.com.au Handicap (1100m) at Rosehill on July 4th. The winner of five of her 13 competitive starts, having finished in the first three a further four times, the God’s Own mare undoubtedly found career-best form to date over a spring and summer campaign in 2014, highlighted by success in the Listed Travel Associates Classic (1200m) on November 29th. Brook Road has been charged with carrying only 54kgs in the July Sprint and will be partnered by Brenton Avdulla.

3rd

Burbero ($10)

Trainer Bjorn Baker has revealed a bold plan for Burbero to target the Group 1 Epsom Handicap (1600m) this time, and he would arguably have to show his class amongst a field like that confirmed for the July Sprint if he is any hope. While charged with carrying a race-high 60.5kgs, the O’reilly gelding has claimed an impressive 12 wins and nine minors in 37 career starts; winning the Group 2 Ajax Stakes (1500m) and finishing a credible sixth in the Group 1 George Ryder Stakes (1500m) most notably in autumn.
