Sessions Tops Canterbury BMW Classic 2013 Odds

Peter Snowden’s promising Lonhro colt Sessions has opened the top fancy to win Friday night’s 2013 Canterbury BMW Classic in Sydney, the three-year-old vying for their fourth career win at start number six.

A nine-horse field of sprinters is accepted for this year’s edition of the $100,000 Listed Canterbury BMW Classic (1100m), the favourite of which is Sessions at a current quote $2.80.

Despite drawing the extreme outside barrier, the progressive up-and-comer is still dominating the Canterbury Classic betting markets having caught the eye last time out with a smart quarter length win at Warwick Farm on January 5.

After winning their opening two career starts Sessions failed to salute for the favourite backers in two Rosehill runs after bad racing manners cost them the win.

They atoned last start and the bookies believe they can keep it going as they gain valuable racing experience ahead of the bigger autumn features.

Darley’s ace jockey Kerrin McEvoy, aboard Sessions for three of their starts including their last win, is a big fan of the horse and will travel to Sydney for the ride leaving the Melbourne bedside of his pregnant wife who could give birth any day.

“He ran a pretty good time on that quick track the other day at Warwick Farm,” McEvoy said.

“It is a different assignment again but I’m looking forward to hopefully sneaking his first bit of black type.”

In a wide open market four of Session’s eight rivals are also at a single figure price to win with:

  • #3 Unanimously ($4.80) – Ideal barrier two draw the defending Canterbury Classic winner is back seeking successive wins in the feature with last year’s winning hoop Tommy Berry on their back for the first time since, the Matthew Dale-trained five-year-old last seen running third in a black type at Moonee Valley back in August
  • #2 Skytrain ($6.50) – Snowden’s other runner, this veteran seven-year-old looked near peak fitness on New Year’s Day when finishing only a long neck away third to 2011 Magic Millions Classic champ No Looking Back in the Listed Carrington Stakes at Rosehill
  • #7 Didntcostalot ($6.50) – Marc Conners-trained Danerich four-year-old was a $3 bargain buy that has exceeded early expectations racing competitively over their 13 starts for four wins to date
  • #5 Uate ($7) – Early market mover, this Kris Lees-trained four-year-old is a Group 1 placegetter in the autumn of 2011 and ran a nice third in the Takeover Target Stakes at Gosford last time out

There is hardly anything separating the next best fancied too with Rick Worthington’s 2011 Australia Stakes winner Whitefriars ($10), Nick Olive’s Canberra raider Zaratone ($15) and Territory ($16) all in the mix.

The only genuine roughie of the field is $51 outsider Jest Crewsin’ who will be ridden by Corey Brown as they look to secure their first win since May of 2011, the known mudlark needing it very wet to be any kind of chance.
