Best bets from expert tipsters for midweek racing at Canterbury
Free racing tips from expert Matt Buckland
Canterbury Race 2 Tip #7 Maid of Heaven $3.40
Just the one career start for this exciting galloper who flew home on debut at Canterbury, coming from last to grab fourth in what was a luckless run.
The Mark Newnham trained filly ran three trials previous to her first run, winning the latest by 3.8L.
With more luck this time around, she should prove too good for them here.
Canterbury Race 6 Tip #6 Jungilized $5.00
The Brad Widdop trained gelding is coming off a great first-up run where he knocked up late to run third.
He will take plenty of benefit from that run and will look to improve on his already good second-up record.
With one win from one start at the track and distance and dropping down in grade, this race looks to have been on the radar for some time.

Canterbury Race 2 Tip #1 Brilliant Choice $13.00 each way
This colt from the Hawkes stable finds a race full of quality runners at his first career start.
With three solid trials under his belt, all of which were run in good time, the Hawkes team will have this colt ready to fire.
The fact that he is still a colt and heading to the races gives the impression that he is a talented type, with connections keen for a strong preparation.

Canterbury Race 3 Tip #3 Greysful Glamour $9.00 each way
Her first career start was on a soft track in Group 3 company and was a complete forgive run.
Back onto a Good track, this filly showed plenty of ability stringing some nice runs together.
From the inside draw, jockey Tim Clark should be able to hold the rail for an uncontested lead.
Off the back of three trials, her fitness should hold out and you'd expect her to be very tough to run down.
