#6 Ready To Rip $4.40
This Moody-trained five-year-old may not have the Group 1 credentials of a number of his rivals but he has plenty in his favour.
The son of More Than Ready has won two races from two starts at stakes level since joining Moody’s stable from Queensland and faces a number of horses who are resuming first-up.
Was very strong winning the Group 3 Bletchingly Stakes last start and is a proven wet-track performer unlike a number of his key rivals who are either untried or struggle in wet conditions.
Luckygray is unproven in the wet but he is a class galloper who has been unstoppable in the west throughout the winter.
After taking out the Group 1 Railway Stakes last summer, he returned this winter in terrific form to win a treble in the Group 3 Roma Cup, Belmont Sprint and Hyperion Stakes.
Zamorar may not have a stakes victory to his name but the Seymour-based gelding has been ultra consistent this winter and there is no reason that can’t continue.
The four-year-old has finished in the top three in his last six starts with all those results coming on tracks rated slow or worse.
