Moment Of Change in Key Black Caviar Test Ahead Of 2013 Newmarket Handicap

Peter Moody has been forced to throw Moment Of Change into the Black Caviar cauldron in the 2013 Black Caviar Lightning (1000m) at Flemington on Saturday to give him a crucial workout ahead of next month’s Group 1 2013 Newmarket Handicap (1200m).

Moody had originally intended to go into the Newmarket first-up on the back of a barrier trial but felt the need to give him experience down the Flemington straight.

Horses can sometimes struggle to adapt to the Flemington straight and it will provide a useful lead-up for the winner of five of nine starts.

“I’d forgotten the horse had never been to Flemington before….he’ll get full exposure to the straight and then he’s got a nice three week break,” Moody said.

The four-year-old is still lightly raced but has shown plenty of quality including during a brief spring campaign where he won both the Group 1 Sir Rupert Clarke Stakes and the Listed Show Country Quality.

Moody is under no illusions that the son of Barely A Moment can trouble his superstar stablemate but believes it will be beneficial ahead of the first-up goal of the Newmarket.

While many other trainers have been scared off, Moody has pitched two of his own against the great mare, with Golden Archer also set to line up in the feature sprint.

The four-year-old entire is a quality sprinter in his own right and Moody was left with no choice but to throw him into the deep end against Black Caviar.

However Moody is confident the future stallion prospect can run a hot race and is expecting both he and Moment Of Change can challenge for the minor placings.
