The five-year-old daughter of Dubawi is one of nine in this year’s $500,000 Group 1 Canterbury Stakes (1300m) field, the weight-for-age clash running as Race 7 at 4:10pm (AEDT) on Randwick Guineas Day.

Mares have dominated the Canterbury Stakes winners’ list in recent years with three winning in the past four years including Appearance last Sydney Autumn Racing Carnival.

This year, two mares sit top of the Canterbury Stakes odds at with Catkins ($3.10) and Cosmic Endeavour ($3.40) battling for favouritism.

Third to Bonaria in the Group 1 Myer Classic (1600m) at Flemington during the spring, Catkins has won back-to-back races this time in at Rosehill completing the Group 2 Breeders Classic (1200m) – Group 2 Millie Fox Stakes (1300m) double.

She is two weeks between runs again and is undefeated over the distance with two previous 1300m wins, Catkins drawn a treat in barrier three with Jim Cassidy to ride.

Her main danger then is Cosmic Endeavour with the rails run from barrier one for ace hoop James McDonald.

Gai Waterhouse’s Northern Meteor four-year-old won the Group 1 Tattersall’s Tiara (1400m) at Eagle Farm last winter before a lengthy spell that saw her miss the spring.

In her returning run this autumn on February 14 at Randwick she ran a close fourth just over a length behind Thump in the Group 3 Triscay Stakes (1200m).

Her last run was then just last weekend at Warwick Farm when runner-up to Danesiri in the Group 3 Guy Walter Stakes (1400m), an effort she’s out to go one better than on the short seven-day turnaround.

There are then two other single figure hopes in the current Canterbury Stakes betting markets with Tiger Tees and Fontelina paying $7.50 each.

Seven-year-old Tiger Tees from Joe Pride’s stables won last year’s Group 1 The Galaxy (1100m) and was flying during the early spring including a Group 2 Warwick Stakes (1400m) win in the wet over Royal Descent.

He hasn’t raced since a second to Lucia Valentina in the Group 2 Tramway Stakes (1400m) at Randwick last September, also run on a Heavy track, but has an ace record of five wins and two seconds from nine first-up runs.

Fontelina meanwhile jumps from barrier seven, two inside of Tiger Tees with the outside alley, for trainer Anthony Cummings and is also first-up here.

The Testa Rossa six-year-old hasn’t won a race since November of 2013 and runs for the first time since a second to Spirit Of Boom in the Group 1 William Reid Stakes (1200m) at Moonee Valley last March.

There are no blowout chances in the Canterbury Stakes markets this year with the five other runners all paying $17 or under to win including Waller’s returning dual Doncaster Mile winner Sacred Falls ($12) and Criterion ($13) first-up off a third in the Hong Kong Cup overseas in December.
