Canterbury - Race 3 2:00pm AEST

No. 9 Sirens Star

Sirens Star debuted quite well at Canterbury earlier in the month, overcoming a slow start to make up good ground for third.

She’s clearly got a turn of foot and it was encouraging to see her handle similar conditions last time out.

Jason Collett takes the reins this time and providing she jumps well, the pair should be able to get back and save their best for late.

Canterbury - Race 5 3:10pm AEST

No. 5 Dinado

Dinado is back for another crack on the short backup after running second at Kensington last week.

The daughter of Toronado led and was only gunned down inside the final 50m with a good gap back to third.

She’s a proven performer on heavy tracks with three wins to her name, while she’s also run a place over 1900m in the past. Tommy Berry sticks and the pair map to run a similar race here on speed.

Canterbury - Race 6 3:45pm AEST

No. 11 No Laughing Matter

No Laughing Matter is worth forgiving on her first-up run when 8th of 11 at Randwick.

The daughter of Exosphere finished off only fairly after straightening across heels at the top of the straight, but her impressive second-up record suggests she can bounce back.

The Kris Lees-trained four-year-old won her maiden at this stage of her prep a couple of years ago and was also a comfortable four-length winner at Taree.

Her heavy track record is just as impressive and the booking of Hugh Bowman commands enormous respect.

Canterbury - Race 7 4:20pm AEST

No. 1 Narrated

Narrated is an experienced wet-track specialist, as we’ve seen in two runs so far this prep.

The Snitzel mare won well first-up at Ballarat in similar conditions and was only beaten narrowly by a smort horse at Randwick nearly a month ago over a touch shorter.

This is a much easier race for her with a senior jockey back on board, and her brilliant fresh record suggests she can atone. Barrier 3 should see her push forward and give her rivals something to catch.
