Sessions Out of 2013 Canterbury Classic – Odds Update

Race favourite for tonight’s Canterbury BMW Classic 2013 in Sydney, the Peter Snowden-trained Sessions, has been withdrawn from the race with a testicular injury upsetting the betting markets on the twilight feature.

Unanimously and Master Of Design

Unanimously has firmed into the Canterbury Classic 2013 favourite

A winner of three of their five starts and counting, progressive Lonhro colt Sessions was topping the markets for the $100,000 Listed Canterbury BMW Classic (1100m) paying around $2.80.

Snowden informed Racing NSW stewards yesterday that the three-year-old would be an official Canterbury Classic scratching “due to localised swelling in a testicle.”

Sessions was dually accepted for the Australia Day long weekend and has now also been withdrawn from their engagement at Warwick Farm on Saturday in the $85,000 Handicap (1200m).

Defending Canterbury Classic winner Unanimously, in from $4.80 to $3.60, is now the new favourite after the early withdrawal of Sessions on Thursday afternoon.

Drawn in barrier two with Tommy Berry to ride, the Not A Single Doubt gelding won the Canterbury Classic 12 months ago and will be after their first victory since tonight.

They were last seen running a brave third in the Listed Carlyon Stakes (1000m) at Moonee Valley back in August, the galloper boasting an excellent first-up record with three wins from five starts.

The removal of the top elect from the Canterbury Classic odds has obviously had a big effect on the markets with Didntcostalot the genuine market mover in from $6.50 when occupying the fourth line of betting to the $4.40 second pick.

Drawn in gate three with Peter Robl to ride the Danerich four-year-old is a known mudlark and the predicted heavy rain in Sydney later today has the punters rallying behind this horse that has an excellent wet track record with their latest win being on a Heavy (8) at Sandown back in August.

Other big firmers are 2011 Australia Stakes winner Whitefriars ($10 into $6.50) who is on the comeback trail, and Lonhro five-year-old Territory ($16 into $9) whose best racing has always been on rain-affected ground.

The Peter Snowden-trained Carrington Stakes third placed Skytrain ($6.50 into $5) and Kris Lees’ Ad Valorem four-year-old Uate ($7 into $6) coming off a third in the Takeover Target Stakes at Gosford have also firmed in their Canterbury Classic price.
