Moody’s Dual Railway Stakes Day 2013 Group 1 Assault

Victoria’s premier horseman Peter Moodyis set to saddle-up two livewire Group 1 chances in Perth this weekend as he looks for some elite level success during WA’s iconic summer racing carnival.

Moody will be represented in the day’s marquee race with his last start winning mare Plucky Belle in the $1 million Group 1 Railway Stakes (1600m).

He will also accept for the consistent Moment Of Change in the $500,000 Group 1 Winterbottom Stakes (1200m).

“Moment Of Change has held his form and Plucky Belle is absolutely flying,” Moody told AAP.

Since the retirement of Black Caviar Moody’s Group 1 chances have definitely thinned out.

He hopes that can change when he heads west this weekend heading to Ascot Racecourse where his undefeated turf queen Black Caviar never raced.

His Group 1 Sir Rupert Clarke Stakes (2012) winning Barley A Moment gelding Moment Of Change is one of the top chances for the Winterbottom this year.

They are out to break a losing spell that goes right back to their Sir Rupert win 14 months ago.

The five-year-old pays $6.50 in the pre-field Winterbottom Stakes odds, led by Queenslander Buffering ($2.60), occupying the third line of betting.

They have run in three Group 1 races on the trot this season, beaten in their last two by Rob Heathcote’s Winterbottom favourite Buffering.

Just half a length away fourth in the Group 1 Manikato Stakes (1200m) at Moonee Valley last month, Moment Of Change was last seen crossing two and a half lengths away third in the Group 1 VRC Sprint Classic (1200m) on November 9.

While very well aware of the danger Buffering presents again, Moody hopes a change of states can disrupt the favourite’s flying form.

“Moment Of Change is going to need luck to beat Buffering but he has always been in the mix in those sorts of races,” Moody said.

“You’ve got to be in it to win it, you’re not going to have luck at home.”

A Winterbottom Stakes jockey for Moment Of Change is still to be confirmed with Moody’s stable favourite Luke Nolen injuring his knee.

He was thrown from a horse in the mounting yard for the opening Caulfield race on Saturday.

Nolen will undergo scans today before being cleared to ride on the weekend.

Mossman mare Plucky Belle meanwhile is a rougher chance of success in what is shaping up as a highly competitive edition of the Railway Stakes.

Last seen defeating Arinosa as a $16 outsider in the Group 3 Lavazza Short Black (1400m) at Flemington on Melbourne Cup Day, Plucky Belle will take on the likes of Emirates Stakes runner-up Smokin’ Joey and Heathcote’s flying mare Fire Up Fifi in the Railway.

She was a late Railway Stakes entry after her Cup Day triumph, from which she pulled up well according to Moody.

“We weren’t sure that we would go from Sydney to Melbourne and then over to Perth. But when she won at Flemington and pulled up well we were happy to do it,” he said.

Ascot race fields for the weekend are set for release shortly making now your last chance to lock in the generous futures prices open at Ladbrokes.com.au on both the Railway and Winterbottom Stakes.
