Sookie Well Backed In 2014 Canterbury Classic Betting

Sookie will be making her debut for the Gai Waterhouse stable in the 2014 Canterbury Classic tonight and has been easily the best-backed runner in betting markets for the Listed event.

Sookie has not been seen at the races since her impressive win in the Group 3 Glenlogan Park Stakes (1350m) at Doomben on May 25, but has recorded two impressive victories in barrier trials at Royal Randwick on December 16 and January 3.

The Casino Prince mare has recorded only one win from four first-up starts, but that has not stopped her being backed into 2014 Canterbury Classic odds of $2.70.

Talented sprinter Howmuchdoyouloveme has been allocated a hefty 61kg by Racing New South Wales handicappers, but is still on the second line of Canterbury Classic betting markets at odds of $4.

Howmuchdoyouloveme returned to his best form during the 2013 Brisbane Winter Racing Carnival; winning the Listed Lightning Handicap (1000m) and Group 3 W.J. Healy Stakes (1200m) before finishing his campaign with a fifth place finish in the Listed Ramornie Handicap (1200m).

The next best runner in Canterbury Classic betting markets has been Darley gelding Knoydart ($4.40), who returned to the races with a narrow win in the TAB Rewards Handicap (1250m) at Canterbury on December 28 – his first race start since being gelded.

Knoydart has recorded three wins from 13 career starts and the son of More Than Ready will be stepping back-up to black type racing for the first time since he finished fourth behind Mulaazem, Fiveandahalfstar and Super Cool in the Group 2 Autumn Stakes (1400m) at Caulfield on February 9 last year.

Like the majority of the horses in the 2014 Canterbury Classic field, Marc Quinn-trained Pentasia will be making her return to the races and has been backed into odds of $6.50 to record her second win at Listed level.

Pentasia broke through for the biggest win of her career in the Listed Chief De Beers Handicap (1110m) at Doomben on May 25, but was unable to return to the winners circle in the Listed Lightning Handicap (1000m), Listed Ramornie Handicap (1200m) and the July Sprint (1200m).

Rounding out the 2014 Canterbury Classic betting market are: veteran gelding Centennial Park ($9), Queensland speedster Adebisi ($13) and the consistent Tahitian Black ($15).
