Canterbury Race 7: Jimmy Wood Memorial BM84 1100m

24/07/2015: Hard To Hold was a strong last start winner this grade in heavy conditions at Rosehill and draws perfectly for a soft run from gate 2. Hard To Hold has a good record over the 1100m and a good winning strike rate. Looks a great chance for back to back wins. Il Mio Destino did a terrific job from a very wide draw last time when led them up and hung on for a good 3rd to Darciwood at Randwick. This mare handles heavy conditions and looks a genuine each way show at double figure odds. Echo Gal is unbeaten both runs here but was disappointing last time out in small field. She has however performed well in much stronger company than meets here. This filly from the Waterhouse yard has been freshened up and a much better showing is on the cards. Miniature is from a stable with winning ways and wouldn't have to improve a great deal on last start 3rd to Hard To Hold to play a hand in this. Miniature has been placed both runs on heavy and maps well here from good draw.

PACE COMMENTS Looks plenty of frontal pressure in this event with Judicial Rock, Il Mio Destino and Echo Gal who may all look to take up the pacemakers role, throw in four genuine on pace runners and we have the makings of a very slick first sectional and overall fast tempo. The first four market favourites are all in the leader / on pace listed runners and I'm sure riders will be instructed not to get caught in any early speed duels. Tipping Hard To Hold to just ease out a little and get a sweet run from gate 2 just off the pace.
