Daily Racing Tips – Friday, December 13

Canterbury: Race 2 (6:45pm AEDT)
No. 8 Savaspur

Savaspur has stripped fitter for two competitive efforts this time and is ready to break his maiden at Canterbury this evening. The son of Savabeel stamped himself as a colt to follow when he finished off well for third at Kembla Grange on debut, before producing a similar effort to run half a length third to Earth Song last time out. Third-up, the rise in trip and Hugh Bowman are all positives.

Canterbury: Race 4 (7:45pm AEDT)
No. 3 Stardome

Stardome has returned several pleasing efforts this time and looks well placed to record another win at Canterbury tonight. The Savabeel gelding recorded a smart win at Kembla Grange three back and has excuses when found to have a cardiac arhythmic issue two back, before responded with a close-up second in a tougher race at Rosehill last time out. He’s drawn a peach and will be ridden by James McDonald.

best bet
Canterbury: Race 5 (8:15pm AEDT)
No. 2 Mossman Gorge

This is shaping as the race of the night at Canterbury, but Mossman Gorge is a classy type and will be extremely difficult to beat second-up. The Matt Dale-trained son of Mossman has been a strong and consistent performer for the stable throughout his career and was just bobbed out of a place when resuming on The Gong Day. He can take a prominent position in running and will give them something to chase.

each way
Canterbury: Race 7 (9:15pm AEDT)
No. 2 Reflectivity

Reflectivity has returned two fair efforts in tougher races this time and looks ready to do something third-up at a price tonight ($8 at publish). The All Too Hard gelding finished fifth from an on-pace position when resuming at Flemington when running midfield at Rosehill last time out. He gets a relief in the weights with Brock Ryan’s claim and can fight out the finish.
