International Racing: Wednesday 06 May 2020 – Canterbury

A six-race programme greets punters at Leeton this Thursday 7th May 2020. Aside from a fairly straight forward first race where punters shouldn’t have to look past the first two selections, the remainder of the card looks tough and a cautious approach is advised. MAHSINGER should be the best bet on the card, when she lines up in race 5. She will be looking to build on that good latest over the mile and should just about win. See more here.

Race 1 – 04:05 – 11050m – Maiden Plate
Selections: 1 – 3 – 7 – 4 – 2
SUPALUX looks set for a big performance here after two decent comeback runs this year. The son of Delago Deluxe is reunited with Tyler Schiller who claims the 1,5kg and after showing a late surge in both of his last two outings, he will be looking to overhaul this modest field. The biggest danger comes in the form of market rival CHAP’S DREAM. The daughter of Dream Ahead arrives under similar circumstances as the top selection, as she too lines up for her peak run back after a lengthy absence. With three seconds from four attempts over this trip, she’s the biggest danger. Of the rest, THUWANNY and LILIERO will need to improve but they look the likeliest to fill the minor places.

Race 2 – 04:45 – 1050m – Maiden Handicap
Selections: 8 – 1 – 4 – 7 – 6
SOOMAYA needed her last start when returning for her follow up attempt after that debut run back in late November. The daughter of Pride Of Dubai showed plenty of early speed and tired late to finish 4,60 lengths back. She will undoubtedly strip a lot fitter here and over the slightly reduced trip, she looks the one to beat. FREE LUNCH went a lot closer to winning when having his comeback run last time, after a similar spell away from racing. That was in a small field over 900m and he is going to relish the extra this time. Apprentice Tyler Schiller retains the ride and he should go right into contention once again. LUBERON is also just getting going in his career and will be hoping for better underfoot conditions here, after battling in the heavy-going last time. On his penultimate run, he can feature here and must go into consideration. SHEEZA MENZIES is still a maiden after 17 course appearances and if repeating her penultimate run over a similar trip, she could find a minor position.

Race 3 – 05:22 – 1050m – Class 2 Handicap
Selections: 4 – 2 – 1 – 5 – 9
RARE GEM arrives here on the back of an impressive debut win last month and the 3-year old daughter of Smart Missile will be looking to follow up here. With scope for improvement, she looks progressive enough to handle this rise in class and should have the credentials to win this. CORAZON DE ORO is going to relish this drop back in trip after that latest effort over 1300m didn’t suit her style of running. That was after an encouraging victory in her penultimate start with a hefty 66,5kg on her back. She returns to Class 2 level here and looks set for a big performance. HAPPY LAD has been very competitive before that modest last start in a BM58 handicap. He went very close to winning over a similar trip three runs back and on that run deserves inclusion. ASTIR seems to be gradually improving and he looks set to go into contention now. The slight drop in trip will suit his handy running style and he should be involved in the finish here.

Race 4 – 05:57 – 1600m – BM58 Handicap
Selections: 3 – 2 – 7 – 1 – 5
BRAVDO LASS reverts to a course where she has enjoyed a fair amount of success, having landed four wins from her fourteen attempts. Her record at this course also suggests she enjoys running here. After a modest effort against slightly stronger last time out, the daughter of Zariz steps back up to the mile where she won in her penultimate run. A repeat of that effort should make her a tough horse to beat. KAPOVER should enjoy stepping back up to this trip for her fourth start this year. She hasn’t been too far off the action in recent times, but she is going to relish stepping back up to a trip where she has featured in the first three places on four occasions from her six attempts. From a decent draw she has the credentials to go into contention. MADDIE’S THE BOSS and PITTSBURGH both need to improve to have a winning chance, but they should be able to find the places.

Race 5 – 06:37 – 1600m – Class 1 & Maiden Plate
Selections: 10 – 3 – 7 – 9 – 12
MAHSINGER has returned to racing this year with three good performances, culminating with a very good effort last time out. She sat off the pace on that occasion but finished off nicely to improve position late. That was when stepping up to the mile and she lands a plum draw once again for what looks like an inevitable second career win for the daughter of Al Maher. SMART AIN’T HE clearly enjoyed the step up to this trip last time out, when staying on strongly in the closing stages to finish third. The son of Smart Missile has gate 9 to overcome in his attempt to improve on that last run, but he has the gate speed to go handy and he can feature here. MISS MATRIARCH did well to hold on to third in her latest effort, when stepping up to the 1400m. She is yet to feature in three attempts over the mile, but with a handy weight to shoulder she can be involved this time.  TOUGH DECISION seems to be on the improve and if overcoming draw 10, the 4-year old son of So You Think can go into contention.

Race 6 – 07:12 – 1150m – BM50 Handicap
Selections: 3 – 1 – 5 – 2 – 6
SIZZLEONTHEBRIDGE has faced slightly stronger in his last three starts and he is going to enjoy this slight drop to a trip where he has picked up three wins from seven attempts so far. The 3kg claiming Heni Ede takes the ride this time and he should present some nice value for punters, in a wide-open race. ASHRAD has featured prominently in his two starts since leaving the maidens. He showed up well last time out when having his first outing this year and a fitter horse this time around will bring him right into contention. He has scope for more improvement and must be considered a big threat. OUR SWEET LOVE and ORIGINAL PRANKSTER are both on the brink of another big performance and must be included.
