Canberra Racing Review — Friday 9 October 2020

The track was rated a Heavy 8 and they looked for better ground out wider later in the day. The fields held up reasonably well after scratchings and four favourites won on the day with two just going under. Blaike McDougall was clearly the rider of the day with 3 winners and 3 seconds. Matt Cahill got a double. Training honours with Garry Kirkup who trained a double.

Express Courier to Deliver in TAB Tony Campbell Memorial Cup

Express Courier justified a late market push last start when winning the TAB Federal in impressive fashion. The son of Foxwedge will look to make it 6 wins from his past 7 starts when he steps out in the 2020 TAB Tony Campbell Memorial Cup over 1400m this Friday at Thoroughbred Park.

Express Courier is undefeated on the Heavy-going and with consistent rain prior to race day, a rain effected track looks likely. Trainer Keith Dryden was very impressed with his galloper after winning fresh for the first time in his career.

Racing & Sports Canberra Racing Preview — Friday 9 October 2020

There’s been rain around and doubt the track will race better than a slow 7 and maybe worse. The rail goes back into the true position but they’re still likely to look for better ground out wide especially as we get into the program. The feature race — the Tony Campbell Memorial Cup—  has attracted a solid line-up at Open level.

*RACE 1 @ 1.10pm HEFFERNAN LENDING SOLUTIONS HCP (1600m) - Benchmark 60; Min Weight 55kg; Apprentices Can Claim:


A tactical battle over the mile gets us under way. Local 4YO mare 4. TEMOIN CHAUD (Nick Olive/Blaike McDougall; 58kg) has been disappointing this prep, but should be right at her peak now fourth-up staying at the trip, and this isn't strong.

*RACE 1 @ 1.39pm HYGAIN THE BEST REPS AROUND HCP (1400m) - Maiden; Min Weight 55kg; Apprentices Can Claim:


We start a good card with some handy maidens. Warwick Farm 4YO 1. ZARZOU (Brodie Loy; 59kg) now with the Annabel Neasham stable is bursting to win one after four runs this prep. Has been right in the market working home behind some smart ones, and has since had a change of stable. Draws to get a trail just off the speed, and is the one to beat!
