Get our best bets for Canterbury on Wednesday.
Race 3 1:25pm AEST – No. 3 Head Legislator
Money is coming for Head Legislator and it was only a matter of time. The Matthew Dunn-trained three-year-old owns three second placings from five starts and it’s only a matter of time before he breaks through for the win. He recorded consecutive placings at Doomben last preparation before spelling, and he has come back in good order with a trial win.
The son of Headwater won a narrow trial at Gold Coast, and although facing Sydney opposition is harder, he wouldn’t be traveling without a chance to win. Dunn is a fine trainer and punters should be confident with the favourite.
Race 3 2:00pm AEST – No. 3 Seleque
Seleque is shooting for three consecutive wins after scoring on both sides of a spell. The Chris Waller-trained three-year-old filly scored at Gosford before the break and returned with a gutsy one-length win at Warwick Farm. It came in heavy conditions, so she won’t be worried about the conditions on Wednesday. The daughter of Deep Field loves running on rain-affected ground with four starts for two wins and two placings.
She is facing a talented field, but with only seven runners, that will allow her to find a good position in the run and find the line nicely. Expect jockey Tommy Berry to let her find her feet over the first 200m before being let down at the top of the straight.
Race 6 3:45pm AEST – No. 6 Bethencourt
Punters have to keep the faith with Bethencourt, which has placed in two of his last three starts. The Kim Waugh-trained gelding is capable on his day and his record of two wins and three placings from eight starts suggests as much. However, he was beaten as the $2.70 favourite two back before running a huge race for second behind Papal Warrior at Rosehill.
If the son of Puissance de Lune can bring that form to the table, he shouldn’t find this field too hard. He will likely have to find the back of another runner after drawing wide, but jockey Josh Parr is riding confidently and that could make the difference. Punters get each-way odds worth taking.
Race 7 4:20pm AEST – No. 4 Wairere Falls
A runner knocking on the door of an overdue win is Wairere Falls. The Chris Waller-trained four-year-old owns three placings from four starts this preparation and after the scratching of favourite Off Shaw, most of the money has come for Wairere Falls. He is a three-time winner from 18 starts, with those wins coming in Victoria. Since arriving in Sydney, he has yet to produce the goods, but it’s only a matter of time.
The well-bred son of Savabeel has wet-track form and although beaten last start, he was close behind Kiwi runner Meg, which is good form. Tommy Berry should settle him closer to the pace this time around and he will be dangerous from there. He owns a handy turn-of-foot and he should go close to scoring his first Sydney victory.
