Cosmic Endeavour Can Win 2015 Canterbury Stakes

The Group 1 Canterbury Stakes (1300m) is one of two Group One races running at Randwick this Saturday, attracting a small yet classy field of eight sprint-mile runners.

Cosmic Endeavour is one of just two runners not resuming in the race, which means the four-year-old mare will have a fitness advantage over the majority of her rivals. She’s primed bounce back with a win, taking a bit longer than expected to return to peak fitness after a long spell.

The Gai Waterhouse-trained mare had a lengthy autumn campaign last year, which then continued on into the winter. After placing in five of her seven campaign starts, Cosmic Endeavour took a trip north to Brisbane for the Winter Racing Carnival. The mare won both of her starts, including the Group 1 Tattersall’s Tiara (1400m) on June 21.

Cosmic Endeavour was subsequently spelled for seven months before resuming in the Group 3 Triscay Stakes (1200m) on February 14. The mare was on the back of the speed out three wide and was three lengths back at the turn. She ranged up at the 300m mark and boxed on well enough to finish one length off winner Thump in fourth place.

Two weeks later the mare lined up in the Group 3 Guy Walter Stakes (1400m), finishing runner-up to Danesiri. Waterhouse’s racing manager Adrian Bott believes that with two runs back, the mare should be in her prime for the 2015 Canterbury Stakes.

“With the two runs back it should have her ready now,” he told TVN.

“She’s such a good-doing mare and after having such a long time off it has taken a bit longer to get her back.

“She looks ideally placed in this race tomorrow and Gai is really confident she will bounce back.”

Cosmic Endeavour will enjoy the inside jump from barrier one in the 2015 Canterbury Stakes. The mare is on the second line of betting for the race at Ladbrokes.com.au behind Catkins at $2.80.

The firm favourite is the other fit horse in the field, having won two Group Two races last month. Bott admits the popular grey mare will be hard to beat but Cosmic Endeavour is in form to do just that.

“Sure, Catkins is a great mare and will be hard to beat but from the good gate Cosmic Endeavour will be tough to hold out,” he said.
