Ready To Rip into Victory Stakes – BTC Cup 2013 Double

This Saturday Peter Moody will start his 2013 BTC Cup-bound galloper Ready To Rip in the Victory Stakes which will be their first Brisbane assignment since the sprinter was transferred from Queensland to Melbourne last autumn.

Originally with Andrew Williamson on the Sunshine Coast where they posted five from 17 starts the More Than Ready gelding joined Moody’s operation in Victoria around 12 months ago.

With Moody the talented five-year-old has enjoyed three victories with their opening two for the stable including the Group 3 Bletchingly Stakes (1200m) at Caulfield, and their last start when second-up winner of the Listed Thoroughbred Club Cup over the same track and distance on March 23 when carrying a hefty 60kg.

Ready To Rip races again this weekend when they return to the sunshine state for the $175,000 Group 2 Victory Stakes (1200m) at Doomben Racecourse, an event that has attracted 12 nominees including Rob Heathcote’s Group 1 champion Buffering and three Sydney raiders from Peter Snowden.

A good run on the weekend will affirm plans for Ready To Rip to target elite level glory this Brisbane Winter Racing Carnival as they head toward the $400,000 Group 1 BTC Cup (1200m) on May 11.

Brisbane has been copping plenty of rain over the past month or so playing havoc on the tracks, something many would consider to be in Ready To Rip’s favour as they have always been competitive on rain-affected ground.

Both their record on Slow (7-4-1-0) and Heavy (3-1-0-2) tracks are very encouraging, but Moody believes their mudlark status is a bit overreated.

“I don’t think he’s a wet-tracker, I think that’s a bit of an illusion to be honest,” the master trainer said.

“He’s probably one of those horses that handles good or heavy, in between isn’t really his go.”

It is shaping up as a big weekend around the country’s tracks for Moody who will also saddle-up Manighar against boom three-year-old It’s A Dundeel in Sydney’s $400,000 Group 1 Queen Elizabeth Stakes (2000m) at Royal Randwick.

“It’s A Dundeel has looked outstanding but he’s got to step up against the older horses,” Moody said.

While Murray Baker’s Kiwi youngster It’s A Dundeel comes off his three brilliant autumn 3YO triple crown victories, seven-year-old Manighar was last seen crossing fourth behind the since retired Pierro in the Group 1 George Ryder Stakes (1500m) in their first top four finish of the season.

To get behind Moody’s contingent this weekend and beyond at the best possible prices make sure you have an account open with the country’s premier online bookie who will reward you for signing up with a juicy bonus bet valued up to $500 this autumn.
