Vancouver Headlines 2015 Canonbury Stakes Field

Just six two-year-old colts and geldings will line up in the Group 3 Canonbury Stakes (1100m) at Rosehill Gardens Racecourse on Saturday after Adam Wadick chose not to accept with Mister Meaner.

Of the six confirmed runners, Gai Waterhouse’s Vancouver is the only one not making his debut in the 2015 Canonbury Stakes.

The two-year-old colt debuted back in October at Royal Randwick Racecourse in the Listed Thoroughbred Breeders’ Plate (1000m). He was fast out of the gates to find the front and kept kicking all the way, holding off the favourite in a strong leading effort to win by one and a quarter lengths.

Vancouver is an early $13 shot in the Golden Slipper betting market at and will begin his lead-up to the $3.5 million race with the Canonbury Stakes on Saturday. After three months off the track following his maiden victory, the colt is ready to show his potential.

Tommy Berry has secured the ride and the pair will jump from barrier four. Vancouver will carry the sole top weight of 57.5kg while the remaining field will carry 54.5kg.

The jockey is Waterhouse’s main man and is sure to secure the ride on the colt in the Group 1 Golden Slipper (1200m) on March 21.

Waterhouse had previously stated she would only run Vancouver in the Canonbury Stakes if she was completely happy with the colt, so he must be in fine form after accepting for the race on Wednesday morning.

She will deliver a dual-pronged attack on the race after also accepting with Ulster who will jump from barrier three with Tye Angland to ride.

Godolphin has accepted with Chamarel but a decision to run the colt will not be made until Saturday considering the recent downpour in Sydney.

Should he run, Chamarel will be partnered with the racing magnate’s new number one trainer James McDonald and jump from barrier five.

McDonald would have ridden Mawahibb in the Canonbury Stakes however the hoop severed ties with Michael, Wayne, and John Hawkes this week in favour of riding with Godolphin. Instead Dwyane Dunn will ride for Team Hawkes and jump from barrier two with Mawahibb.

John Sargent’s Cashing Up will enjoy the inside jump from barrier one with Sam Clipperton to ride while Peter & Paul Snowden’s Outreach will jump from the widest gate.
