With what is another exciting midweek schedule of horse racing action from across Australia, Wednesday morning promises to offer a string of fascinating meetings from the likes of Canterbury Park, Canberra, Warrnambool, and the Sunshine Coast.
On that note, for those of you who are looking to put on a midweek flutter, we have searched far and wide to find you a couple of noteworthy tips that are certainly worth keeping an eye out for on Wednesday morning.
06:45 AM – Canterbury Park – Race 6
For our first Tip of the Day, we take a look at the Hyland Race Colours (BM70) at Canterbury Park.
Making her first start in 33 weeks, there is no doubt that a returning STELLAR IMPACT will have all eyes on her in midweek. Putting in what was an stellar display in an open trial at Randwick last month, trainers Gai Waterhouse and Adrian Bott saw their four-year-old run Wagga Gold Cup winner HOUSE OF CARTIER a close second.
Building off of back-to-back victories at Randwick and Newcastle in the Maiden Plate last year, the talented mare rightfully opens Wednesday’s meeting as a favourite with the bookmakers. With the Japanese import from the Gai Waterhouse unbeaten since making a maiden appearance in Australia, we’re expecting STELLAR IMPACT to keep up that purple patch in midweek.
06:55 AM – Warrnambool – Race 8
For our second Tip of the Day, we turn our attention to arguably the standout meeting from all across Australia on Wednesday morning.
Looking to claim the prestigious Warrnambool Cup in Victoria, standout four-year-old TOO CLOSE THE SUN should be looking to extend on what has been a stellar campaign. Building off of a rampant victory at Moonee Valley back in March, trainer Lindsey Smith saw her gelding romp to victory in the Terang Cup a fortnight ago.
Eventually beating FANCIFUL TOFF by two and a half lengths in his last start, he has now remarkably at least secured a place finish in each of his nine starts during the 2019/2020 calendar. With a win percentage of 50%, there is no doubt that TOO CLOSE THE SUN will have late money placed on him.
