Mayfield-Smith Can Unequivocally Win at Canterbury

Three-year-old filly Unequivocal is running just her fourth career race on Wednesday in the 2015 ATC Membership On Sale Handicap (1250m) at Canterbury Park Racecourse.

Unequivocal began her campaign with a minor placing in the Inglis 2YO Classic (1200m) in January before winning a metropolitan race the following month. However she was then forced off the racetrack for nine months due to injuring a pastern.

She made her comeback in the Group 3 Gucci Stakes (1100m) on Crown Oaks Day – her first black-type race. However it didn’t go quite as trainer Noel Mayfield-Smith imagined, the filly finished back of the field in tenth place.

While she was never a chance at winning the race, Mayfield-Smith did take something valuable from the experience.

“She was hopeless down the straight at Flemington but we knew we were in trouble when she drew the outside and everything decided to run down the middle of the track,” the trainer told Sky Racing.

“She got detached from the rest of the field and was virtually racing on her own then.

“But she finished off quite nicely and I thought it wasn’t a bad run first-up. I was happy enough with her.”

Unequivocal has seen her price shorten in the ATC Membership On Sale Handicap betting market, down to $3.40 at Ladbrokes.com.au where she opened at $4. However market mover Rock Temple is the short favourite at $2.15.

The Chris Waller-trained gelding finished runner-up in the NSW Racehorse Owners Association Handicap (1250m) last time out and will jump from barrier four.

Form lines point to an easy win for Unequivocal at Canterbury Park on Wednesday, not only will the filly get the ideal inside run from barrier one she will also carry just 55.5kg – up to four kilos less than five of her six rivals. The Sue Grills-trained Keep It Danish is the only horse carrying less weight at 54.5kg.

She also beat Delectation in February who then went on to run second in the Group 1 Coolmore Stud Stakes (1200m) on November 1. Not to mention Peggy Jean, who ran third in the metropolitan race, went on to win the Group 1 Sires’ Produce Stakes (1400m) just two starts later.

“There is good form behind her, there is no doubt about that whatsoever,” Mayfield-Smith said.

“If she runs well will only have two runs then have an ease up and we’ll go from there.”
