Waterhouse Duo Throttles Canterbury Market
In Sydney, meanwhile, the Gai Waterhouse-trained duo of Pierro ($2.60) & More Joyous ($2.80) appears to hold a mortgage on tomorrow's Gr1 Canterbury Stakes at Rosehill Gardens. Mighty mare More Joyous is undefeated over the distance and has won 11 of her 14 starts at the track, however her uncharacteristic runs in Melbourne's Spring last year have punters second guessing her capacity to handle her brilliant 3YO stable mate Pierro. He finished lengths in front of her (where she had a shocking barrier) in the Gr1 Cox Plate, before showing the hallmarks of a champion with his gritty Gr2 Hobartville Stakes win at Warwick Farm 3 weeks ago. Despite their market dominance, Peter Moody's entrant Moment Of Change is quietly fancied to upset the script and is rated a $4.50 chance.
