Moody Eyes Upset Canterbury Stakes 2013 Win

While all the pre-race talk is on the Gai Waterhouse-trained stablemates Pierro and More Joyous ahead of this Saturday’s Canterbury Stakes 2013 at Rosehill, rival horseman Peter Moody is happy with his Group 1 winning duo believing one is capable of an upset in the Sydney Autumn Racing Carnival feature.

Due to run as Rosehill Race 8 at 4:50pm (AEST) the $350,000 Group 1 Canterbury Stakes (1300m) field has drawn 10 top class contenders including the reigning champ More Joyous and Waterhouse’s fellow star Pierro.

While there is no doubt Lonhro colt Pierro is the one to beat, and the resuming More Joyous also presents a danger having saluted in this race first-up last autumn when it held only Group 2 status ahead of her elite level triple that included the Doncaster Mile, Moody isn’t shying away from the challenge.

The leading Victorian horseman, who will also saddle-up his stable ace Black Caviar on Friday night in the William Reid Stakes where the superlative mare will vie for consecutive win number 24, believes his two Canterbury Stakes hopefuls are not without their claims.

The first of Moody’s duo is Spring Champion Stakes winner Moment Of Change drawn wide in gate nine with Luke Nolen to ride.

Despite the awkward gate Moody rates the Barley A Moment four-year-old as a top chance based on their two close defeats this time in.

The first was behind the queen Black Caviar in the Lightning Stakes down the Flemington straight before they came within a short half-head of Shamexpress as the beaten favourite in the Newmarket Handicap on March 9 – a result Moody still cannot explain.

“He is flying,” Moody said of the horse who has had five starts the Sydney way of going.

“I know he’s taking on Pierro and More Joyous on their own turf, but they shouldn’t underestimate this horse.

“They will know they have been in a race. I’m very much excited about him, very positive indeed.”

Moody’s other runner is then last winter’s Stradbroke Handicap winner Mid Summer Music.

The rising eight-year-old daughter of Omaru Force will be second-up on Saturday following a fourth in the Group 3 Liverpool City Cup (1300m) where she carried the 59kg top-weight.
