Will Sneak A Peek Score Upset 2012 Caulfield Cup Result?

Peter Moody has three stayers engaged for the Caulfield Cup 2012 including promising import Sneak A Peek and while they’re not the favourite Moody-trained hopeful below we take a look at the pros and cons of backing this double figure chance.

Moody has one of the strongest hands he has ever had in the $2.5 million Group 1 BMW Caulfield Cup (2400m) this year as the premiership winning trainer looks to score his first victory in the famous mile and a half handicap.

The top fancy of Moody’s trio in the Caulfield Cup odds at bookmaker.com.au is betting market mover Lights Of Heaven ($10) followed by Sneak A Peek ($17) and then Underwood Stakes runner-up Voila Ici ($21) looks great value.

While Voila Ici has already made a name for themselves down under Sneak A Peek is yet to finish top three down under.

The Doyen five-year-old has raced three times on Aussie soil since arriving from Italy, their most recent effort being a seventh when defeated four lengths by Cox Plate fancy Green Moon in the Group 1 Turnbull Stakes (2000m) at Flemington on October 6.

So will Caulfield Cup Day be their day?

Is there evidence to suggest Sneak A Peek can sneak into a top three finish, or even win the Caulfield Cup?

Or are they one of the horses to rule out when placing your Caulfield Cup bets online at bookmaker.com.au?
