Twelve months ago premier Victoria trainer Peter Moody combined with jockey Luke Nolen to win the $1 million Group 1 Newmarket Handicap (1200m) with then three-year-old Wanted and there’s little doubt that the dynamic duo will go back-to-back with Black Caviar at Flemington tomorrow.Undefeated in nine, the world’s fastest sprinter Black Caviar looks to have little competition to become the 2011 Newmarket Handicap winner in Flemington Race 6 this Saturday, but can Moody go one better and take out the Quinella with his up-and-coming colt Hinchinbrook?
Black Caviar is odds-on favourite in the Newmarket odds, firming into $1.20 at Luxbet to win Moody successive Newmarket Handicaps following this morning’s scratching of Hay List from the sprint showdown.
All the money is on the Bel Esprit mare, her outstanding record and seemingly undefeatable status earning her all the pre-race attention and praise.
However there is still plenty of money to be made in the Newmarket Handicap betting markets and here the Races.com.au team take a look at horse number 12 in the field, Hinchinbrook.
A possible Newmarket Handicap one-two is on the cards for Moody as he lines up not only Black Caviar but also three-year-old Hinchinbrook in this year’s event.
Hinchinbrook sits as a $26 roughie in the Newmarket Handicap betting markets at Luxbet, a generous price that will add value to the winning Quinella payout come race six tomorrow.
So can Hinchinbrook run second to his star stablemate and make Super Saturday a dream day for Moody?
Why Hinchinbrook Can Run Second to Black Caviar in the 2011 Newmarket Handicap
– Coming off a first-up third in the Group 1 Oakleigh Plate (1100m) at Caulfield, the same race Wanted ran fourth in before his Newmarket win last year
– Has the Moody factor and is one of only three runners in the field along with Black Caviar and Eagle Falls prepared a Newmarket Handicap winning trainer
– Is the right age as a three-year-old as 2010 Newmarket Handicap winner Wanted won in their three-year-old season
– Carrying ‘no’ weight with just 50kg meeting Black Caviar an incredible 8kg better in the weights
– Good barrier five draw
– Decent record over 1200m having had six starts for a win and three thirds
– Boasts the highest Place Rate of the field with 50%
