No Splitting Moody’s 2013 Eagle Farm Cup Betting Favourites

Leading Victorian trainer Peter Moody appears to have Saturday’s Group 2 2013 Eagle Farm Cup (2200m) for the taking, at least as far as the betting market is concerned.

Moody has three runners in the field but it is Group 1 winners Lights Of Heaven and Manighar heading the market at $2.80 apiece.

Lights Of Heaven is chasing a second straight title in the $300,000 staying test but her older stablemate is set to provide a serious challenge.

Manighar showed glimpses of his former self when fourth in the Doomben Cup as Lights Of Heaven finished one spot behind him in fifth.

Jockey Brad Rawiller was pleased with Manighar’s Doomben Cup performance and is confident he can return to the winner’s circle this weekend.

“I reckon he’s starting to get into good form now and I’m looking forward to getting him back on a winning track,” Rawiller said.

The horse rated the best chance of upsetting the favourites is Chris Waller-trained import Moriarty, who is considered a $4 chance in the . Eagle Farm Cup market.

The five-year-old heads into the race in good form after winning the Listed Lord Mayor’s Cup at Rosehill on May 11.

At $7.50 is Quintessential, a New Zealand mare who will be out to steal another feature race off the Queenslanders.

The four-year-old took top honours in last year’s Queensland Oaks and won the Group 3 Chairman’s Handicap at Eagle Farm on May 11.

Moody’s third runner, Voila Ici, is a $15 chance while Zabeelionaire is the $26 outsider after finishing last in the Doomben Cup.
