2016 Canonbury Stakes Field & Betting: Defcon Odds-On

Unraced colt Defcon will debut for Peter & Paul Snowden this Saturday at Rosehill Racecourse in Sydney’s Canonbury Stakes 2016 where the Blue Diamond-bound youngster is odds-on favourite to win first-up.

A nicely-bred son of Choisir, Defcon has had three trials including a last start win over 900m at Rosehill on January 19 ahead of the colt’s much awaited debut in the $150,000 Group 3 Canonbury Stakes (1100m) on Expressway Stakes Day this weekend.

Due to run as Rosehill Race 3 at 1:55pm (AEDT), this year’s Canonbury Stakes field features just eight two-year-old colts and geldings.

Of those four have had a previous race start, but it is Defcon who leads the Canonbury Stakes odds through Ladbrokes.com.au at a short $1.95 based on his trial form.

The bookmakers are also taking no chances on the galloper, drawn in gate seven on Saturday with Brenton Avdulla booked for the ride, in futures markets for the $1.5 million Group 1 Ladbrokes Blue Diamond Stakes (1200m) next month in Melbourne.

He occupies the second line of Blue Diamond Stakes betting at $7 through the race sponsor Ladbrokes.com.au and is also an $18 hope for the $3.5 million Group 1 Golden Slipper Stakes (1200m) back in Sydney the following month.

Three of Defcon’s seven rivals join him under $10 in the Canonbury Stakes betting markets first including another youngster on debut, Star Of Monsoon ($4.80).

Jumping from barrier three, the Gerald Ryan-trained Lonhro colt has had the one trial over 900m on January 19 at Rosehill for a narrow victory with Christian Reith aboard who retains the ride this weekend.

Ryan has also accepted for Jexerlent, the Exceed And Excel colt the $51 roughie of the field after a fifth on debut at Randwick over 1100m behind Tessera earlier in the month.

The John O’Shea-trained all-the-way winner of that two-years-old sprint, Medaglia D’Oro colt Tessera, will look to retain his undefeated status with another win.

He steps up in class for the Canonbury Stakes over the same distance and pays $5 to salute again with James McDonald aboard the Godolphin galloper again.

The other single figure fancy at $6.50 is Tommy Berry’s mount, Mount Panorama in the outside alley.

Prepared by Michael, Wayne & John Hawkes the Sebring colt ran sixth to Tessera on debut as the beaten odds-on favourite crossing nearly five lengths away.

He is tipped to atone however after that luckless run where he got stuck in the worst part of the Soft (6) rated track, with big improvement expected this weekend.

The other two more notable two-year-olds on debut are the Kris Lees-trained Northern Meteor colt Guard Of Honour who has won his two lead-up trials and Clarry Conners’ More Than Ready colt Pewter rated $13 chances to put an early win on the board.
