2018 Canonbury Stakes Betting Update & Early Golden Slipper Tips

Golden Slipper tips will firmly favour the Chris Waller-trained Performer should the up-and-comer salute for the punters as favourite in Canonbury Stakes 2018 betting this weekend.

One of just five two-year-old colts and geldings in the mix for Saturday’s Group 3 $150,000 Canonbury Stakes (1100m) at Rosehill Gardens, Performer is odds-on for the win.

Sitting top of the Canonbury Stakes odds at $1.65 through Ladbrokes.com.au with Kerrin McEvoy to ride, the well-backed son of Exceed And Excel has his second career start in the Expressway Stakes Day showdown.

On debut the colt finished first ahead of Bondi at Randwick last September to salute in the Listed Breeders’ Plate (1000m).

The bookies and punters are now tipping Performer, who has the Group 1 $3.5 million Golden Slipper Stakes (1200m) at Rosehill on March 24 in sight, to remain undefeated following the race results on Saturday.

Looking the good with back-to-back January trial wins at Rosehill, Performer certainly shapes-up as a hard to beat favourite in Rosehill Race 2 at 1:25pm (AEST).

So will Performer salute and secure his single-figure Golden Slipper 2018 odds or can he be beaten by the likes of Gary Portelli’s debutant Exceltic ($3.90) in an upset Canonbury Stakes result?

Our 2018 Canonbury Stakes Trifecta Tip is #1 Performer from #2 Dio D’Oro and #5 Stratosphere

1st

#1 Performer ($1.65)

There is no value tipping Waller’s Golden Slipper-bound colt but in such a small field after the impressive trial lead-up win, Performer really does look the one to back. He showed he knew what racing was all about on debut in the spring not looking at all green and has been just as good in the recent hit-outs at Rosehill. This track and distance first-up with only four rivals to beat should see him make it two-from-two and firm further in Slipper betting.

2nd

#2 Dio D’Oro ($9)

Nice price offered on one of two chances in the race for last year’s Golden Slipper winning horseman Gary Portelli. Jason Collett rides this son of Medaglia D’Oro who comes off a debut second at Randwick from January 20. That race was won impressively by the filly Estijaab who had a four length margin over Dio D’Oro, but here he should be fitter for the run and better over 1100m.

3rd

#5 Stratosphere ($5.50)

Peter & Paul Snowden are master trainers of two-year-olds and think they probably have a pretty good one in this son of Snitzel who debuts in the Canonbury. Has trilled thrice, the latest a fifth behind Satin Slipper over 1050m at Randwick. He has the metres in his legs now and with Glyn Schofield on from the inside alley can surprise.

Now is the time to head to Ladbrokes.com.au for the best weekend racing odds and early Golden Slipper odds on offer for our insider Canonbury Stakes 2018 tips.
