Rain-Affected 2015 Canonbury Stakes Track Will Suit Outreach

The Peter & Paul Snowden-trained Outreach is attracting plenty of support for the Group 3 Canonbury Stakes (1100m) following track work at a rain-sodden Randwick on Tuesday.

Outreach is one of just six two-year-old colts and geldings set to tackle the 2015 Canonbury Stakes at Rosehill Gardens Racecourse on Saturday, and one of five making their debut.

The colt will jump from the outside gate with Kerrin McEvoy as jockey. It’ll be a reunion of the former Godolphin team as McEvoy rides for Sheikh Mohammed’s former head trainer Peter Snowden.

Following heavy downpour throughout the week, Rosehill will be a rain-affected track on Saturday. This should work in Outreach’s favour considering he worked well for McEvoy on Tuesday at a rain-sodden Randwick.

Punters have definitely gotten behind the colt due to the fact. Outreach has seen his price shorten from $3.70 to the current favourite at $2.80 in the Canonbury Stakes betting at Ladbrokes.com.au. He is the market mover after overtaking both Vancouver ($3.70) and Mawahibb ($3.90).

“He’s not an overly big horse but he’s well put together and he’s got a tradesman-like attitude,” McEvoy told Sky Racing.

“On Tuesday morning it was rain-affected ground and he seemed to handle that with ease so you’d expect him to show something on a rain-affected track on Saturday.”

After a shaky start as a freelance rider, McEvoy is starting to reap the rewards of his risky move to part ways with Godolphin as stable jockey. He will ride in seven of the eight races in the Rosehill meeting on Saturday for five different trainers.

“It’s all about getting out and about and restructuring yourself in the freelance world. I’m pretty happy with how it’s going,” McEvoy said.

“I’ve been doing a bit for each of those yards and it’s pleasing to see that can reward you with some rides at the races. Hopefully I can have a nice day on Saturday for those big stables.”

He will ride for Peter Moody in the Group 2 Expressway Stakes (1200m) aboard Thermal Current as well as for Bart & James Cummings in the Group 3 Widden Stakes (1100m) with Yattarna.

Yattarna is one of just three fillies making her debut in the Widden Stakes, which means she’s an outside $26 shot in the betting.

Looking past the odds, McEvoy believes the filly has the raw ability to be a surprise runner.

“There’s no doubt she’ll enjoy further than Saturday’s trip but she might also be a filly that switches on quickly and can almost speed-up into these races heading into the carnival,” he said.
