Defcon, who was at the start of the season rated a better horse than stablemate Capitalist, makes his long awaited debut in the Canonbury Stakes (1100m) and Sportsbet.com.au are taking no chances, opening the horse as an even money favourite.
The well bred first starter Star Of Monsoon has also been kept very safe in the market as $4.60, as has debut winner for Godolphin Tessera at $5.
The Team Hawkes trained Mount Panorama, who was heavily backed at Randwick and ran a luckless sixth, has been $7 out from $6.50. Pewter, a first starter for Clarry Conners, has been $21 to $17 off the back of a couple of nice trials.
