Canterbury juvenile race to provide strong form reference

THEY weren't able to get the job done on Saturday, but John Walter has informed punters to stick solid with two promising two-year-olds from the opening race on the Canterbury card.

Walter has produced another comprehensive review of Saturday's nine-race Sydney card, complete with race replays and Ratings2Win data.

The race he identified as the 'best of the day' from a future form perspective was the opener, taken out by Tango Rain which was backed from $8 on race morning to $4.40 SP.

While describing the winner as "very professional" horse who did nothing wrong, Walter conceded he got everything to suit and instead suggested placegetters Thronum ($3.10 favourite) and Hair Trigger ($4.80) were the ones to follow.

"They've definitely got a chance in a Rosebud one another one of these Golden Rose lead up type races," Walter said.
