Can Moment Of Change Score Upset 2013 Canterbury Stakes Result?

The majority of the attention leading into the Canterbury Stakes 2013 this weekend may be on the Gai Waterhouse-trained duo of More Joyous and Pierro but there are plenty of other talented runners in the mix for the Rosehill Gardens showdown including Moment Of Change.

The third best fancied in the markets for the $350,000 Group 1 Cellarbrations Canterbury Stakes (1300m) at a quote of $4.40 Peter Moody’s Barley A Moment four-year-old trails only spruik colt Pierro ($2.40) and eight-time Group 1 winning mare More Joyous ($3.30).

Drawn in gate nine with Luke Nolen to ride Moment Of Change is also a Group 1 winner having taken out the Sir Rupert Clarke Stakes over 1400m at Caulfield third-up during the spring.

They are third-up again on Saturday on the back of two good second place finishes at elite level.

Their resuming run was a brave one behind superstar stablemate More Joyous in the Lightning Stakes before they came within a nose of Shamexpress when runner-up in the Newmarket Handicap on March 9.

They see Sydney for the first time since September but have been competitive the other way of racing including their third in the Hobartville Stakes in 2012 at this track.

Moody is confident Moment Of Change is ready to strike, but do they have the right arsenal to win?

Why Moment Of Change Will be the Canterbury Stakes 2013 Winner

  • Is third-up after two promising runs this time in and they were third-up during the spring when they took out the Group 1 Sir Rupert Clarke Stakes (1400m) in Melbourne
  • Four length winner over this distance (1300m) at their second career start back in September of 2011
  • Black Caviar’s jockey Luke Nolen has the ride and was aboard for their Sir Rupert Clarke win and their last start second
  • Second to Black Caviar first-up was brave
  • Come off a very close Newmarket Handicap runner-up and will have improved off that run
  • Beat a number of these there – but not Pierro / More Joyous

Why Moment Of Change Won’t Win the 2013 Canterbury Stakes

  • Has work to do from gate nine whereas the top two fancies are drawn better with Pierro in 7 and More Joyous to relish barrier 4
  • Needs to beat the above Waterhouse-trained stars which will be tough going
  • Numbers-wise looks better for a Place boasting the second highest place rate (90.91%) compared to their 45.45% Win Rate which is the fourth best in the field
