Canterbury Stakes 2012 – More Joyous Short Favourite

Gai Waterhouse trained mare More Joyous will head into her fast race back following a spell as a short-priced favourite in the 2012 Canterbury Stakes at Rosehill Gardens this Saturday.

The New Zealand horse currently sits at $2.80 at to collect top billings in the $175,000 Group 2 event (1300m).

More Joyous

More Joyous will starts as a short-priced favourite in the Canterbury Stakes this weekend

With 15 wins from 22 starts there is no doubting the quality of the five-year-old who has collected more than $2.3 million in prize money.

Among those 15 victories are five Group 1 wins and another eight at Group 2 level which is evidence of the More Than Ready mare’s ability to perform in big races against quality fields.

To record a first up victory on Saturday, she will have to overcome some decent horses and Love Conquers All is at the top of that list.

Currently paying $6.00 at, the five-year-old is also returning from a spell and has a decent career record of eight wins from 22 starts.

New Zealand horse Somepin Anypin returned strongly from a spell earlier this month when he finished second in the Liverpool City Cup and finished his 2011 Spring campaign with three straight victories.

The highly promising Gary Portelli trained four-year-old is currently third favourite at $10.00 in the Canterbury Stakes market.

Some value can be found with Albert The Fat who will start at $17.00 after finishing a disappointing eighteenth in the Newmarket Handicap on March 10.

Part of the Chris Waller stable, the seven-year-old has an impressive record of 11 wins from 32 starts with his last victory coming in the Group 1 Emirates Stakes at Flemington last year.

Some long odds can be found with another Waller trained horse in Metal Bender who is a two time Group 1 winner.

The New Zealand gelding is currently the outside hope ($41.00) at and is coming off a seventh-place finish in the Apollo Stakes in late February.

Other horses set to run in the 2012 Canterbury Stakes include Hurtle Myrtle ($11.00), Sincero ($12.00), Triple Elegance ($15.00) and Centennial Park ($16.00).
