Racing & Sports Canberra Racing Preview — Friday 5 February 2021

The track is currently rated a Soft 5. There is the possibility of some showers leading into race day. The rail is out 10m the entire. Good competitive fields as we head into the Canberra autumn features. Expect to see some promising 2yo gallopers to emerge out of Race 3.  

 

Race 1 (1200m) BM60

 

Racing & Sports Canberra Racing Review — 22 January 2021

The rail was out 8 Metres the entire. The track was rated a Good 4 to kick off with, but was immediately upgraded to a Good 3. You could make ground. Blake McDougall again took riding honours with two winners and the training honours were evenly shared. Timely Shadow impressed in the last. 

 

Race 1 (2000m) BM65

 

LAMINGTON DRIVE $1.7F was the one punters wanted in the small field and he just got in from the Sydney-trained AESOP’S FABLE $6, with INVINCIBLE DASH $4 a couple of length back in third. 

Further Update on COVID-19 Exclusions for Race Meetings at Thoroughbred Park

In consultation with Racing NSW stewards, the Canberra Racing Club wishes to advise updates to COVID-19 border restrictions made by ACT Government relevant to travelling participants and patrons. The ACT Government has lifted hotspot declarations on all local government areas except for Cumberland and consequently, participants travelling from previously excluded areas such as Rosehill Gardens and Wawrick Farm are now allowed to enter the ACT and Thoroughbred Park. This update also allows local participants to travel their horses to Sydney freely.

Tejori Aiming to Maintain Perfect Home Record

Nick Olive’s Tejori will return to her home track on Friday 22 January as she looks to recapture the form that saw her become a TAB Highway winner back in May 2020. The four-year-old daughter of Hinchinbrook boasts a perfect record at Thoroughbred Park and will look to make it three wins from three attempts in Canberra when she lines up in Friday’s TAB Federal over the 1200m.

Cracking Canberra Preview 22 January 2021 by Neil Evans

*RACE 1 @ 1.04pm WOMEN IN RACING HCP (2000m) - BenchMark 65; Min Weight 56kg; Apprentices Can Claim:

 

Should be a two-horse war over the longer trip to get us underway headed by tough Goulburn five-year-old 2. LAMINGTON DRIVE (John Bateman/Blaike McDougall; 60kg) who was under pressure a fair way from home but wore down the leader in a CL1 here last start. Up a grade, but never missed a place over this trip and is the one to beat in the small field.
