Canterbury Stakes Tips & Odds – Coolmore Classic Day Betting 2011

Rosehill Racecourse will be home to an exciting nine-race programme this Saturday for Coolmore Classic Day 2011 including the $175,000 Group 2 Canterbury Stakes (1300m) and here we have the top 2011 Canterbury Stakes tips and latest odds.

More Joyous

More Joyous is the odds-on favourite to in Canterbury Stakes betting

Scheduled to run as Rosehill Race 4 tomorrow at 2:10pm (AEDST), the 2011 Canterbury Sakes field features just five gallopers lead by odds-on favourite More Joyous.

The Gai Waterhouse-trained More Joyous is the firming $1.26 favourite at Luxbet to become the Canterbury Stakes winner and she has done nothing of late to question this short price.

This ultra consistent and talented daughter of More Than Ready is seeking her third straight win this preparation having claimed back-to-back black types in February.

First up triple Group 1 winner More Joyous scored an easy 2 ½ length victory over Graceful Anna in the Group 2 Breeders Classic (1200m) before getting over Whobegotyou for the win in the Group 1 Futurity Stakes (1400m) at Caulfield on February 26.

Why More Joyous is Rated Special to win the Canterbury Stakes:

  • Boasts a sensational Win Rate of 75%
  • Drawn well in the outside barrier five where she will find the room she needs
  • Meets her male rivals 2kg better in the weights
  • Coming off back-to-back wins
  • Is a triple Group 1 winner
  • Distance is ideal
  • Has won four of her seven starts at Rosehill
  • Only beaten once with Nash Rawiller in the mount
  • Outclasses this field

Rosehill Race 4 Tips – 2011 Canterbury Stakes Betting

  • Favourite: #5 More Joyous – Rated Special to Win – Bet now at Luxbet

Don’t bet against – see above for why.

  • To Run Second: #2 Love Conquers All

Improving Mossman four-year-old is second favourite in the odds paying $7.50 through Luxbet.

Nice barrier two draw, Group winner during the spring and was impressive first-up when second to Centennial Park in the Group 2 Expressway Stakes (1200m) here.

Had a bad draw when fifth to Melito last start in the Apollo Stakes and will improve here not having to race so wide.

  • Third Place: #1 Rangirangdoo

Recent trials suggest last year’s Doncaster winner should be back in fine form when resuming here after a lengthy spell.

Although it’s been 11 months, Waller’s six-year-old has a good first-up record having won the Expressway Stakes over 1200m when resuming last campaign and Rosehill suits.

  • Exotics: #4 Demerit

Paying $15 for the win at Luxbet, won’t do that but won’t come last either.

Well-bred Lonhro four-year-old first-up for the season, ran third to Hot Danish in this race 12 months ago when resuming but doesn’t look as fit.

It seems to us that with such a diminutive field the bookies have it right and the order of our Canterbury Stakes selections follows that of the odds at Luxbet.

This combined with the fact favourite More Joyous is at such a short price means a better way to get value from your Canterbury Stakes betting is to jump in on the exotic selections at Luxbet.

Also we recommend looking at the futures betting markets for the upcoming Group 1 races the horses in the Canterbury Stakes field are heading towards.

For example, More Joyous is being aimed at the $2 million Group 1 Doncaster Mile (1600m) at Randwick on April 16.

In the early 2011 Doncaster Mile odds More Joyous is the $3 top pick at Luxbet.

So jump on her now at $3 to win the Doncaster Mile before she shortens in the market following another near certain win tomorrow in the Canterbury Stakes!

See below for the latest Canterbury Stakes odds and then visit Luxbet to lock in our tips at the best price.
