The unraced Fastnet Rock colt is accepted to run in the second race on the midweek Canterbury card in Sydney taking on the likes of the Peter & Paul Snowden-trained Kindergarten Stakes fourth placed Magic Diamond and his stablemate Typecast in the $40,000 TAB Rewards Handicap (1100m).

The sprint feature for three-year-olds runs at 1:50pm (AEST) and has attracted a capacity field of a dozen starters plus two emergencies including Montauk for Chris Waller who debuted with a brave second behind subsequent Listed The Rosebud winner Sebring Sun at Canterbury on July 29.

Ryan has a high opinion of Deploy who has his maiden run with Brenton Avdulla in the saddle, the only concern being his outside barrier draw that his trainer admits could be hard to overcome with no previous race experience.

“It will be tough from the barrier,” Ryan told Racenet.

“Without sitting down and doing the form properly, there looks to be a lot of speed underneath him so we might be a chance of riding him back in the field and see how he goes.

“The strike rate from that barrier at Canterbury is not very good and the rail is out six metres.”

While he hasn’t had an official start, Deploy has twice trialled at Rosehill Gardens and won both his heats over 900m, most recently beating home Group 2 Silver Slipper winner Headwater and Group 1 JJ Atkins champ Press Statement on August 4.

This weekend along with the outside alley, the handicap conditions of the race also see him carry 57.5kg giving away lots of weight to some quality types including the Gai Waterhouse-trained Themis (

“He’s shown good ability at home but he’s still got to do it on race day,” a realistic Ryan said.

“I reckon the last few midweek races for these two and three-year-olds have been tough.”

Deploy is nominated for the $1 million Group 1 Caulfield Guineas (1600m) over the mile on October 10, but will need to do a lot between now and then to make the field for the Melbourne Spring Racing Carnival classic.

Early Caulfield Guineas odds at have the Gai Waterhouse-trained Golden Slipper winner Vancouver, who suffered his first loss first-up last weekend when fourth behind Waller’s flying Japonisme in the Group 3 San Domenico Stakes (1200m), as the clear $3.80 favourite.

Further down the all-in Caulfield Guineas betting markets punters can find Ryan’s outside hope Deploy who pays $51 to score an upset.
