Dissident Will Still Progress to 2015 CF Orr Stakes Despite Defeat

Peter Moody’s Dissident was the $1.85 odds-on favourite at Ladbrokes.com.au to win the Group 2 Australia Stakes (1200m) at Moonee Valley on Saturday; however the four-year-old horse suffered defeat at the hands of Peter GelagotisMourinho.

The $31 hopeful delivered an upset win over It Is Written with Dissident one and a quarter lengths away in third place.

Dissident resumed in the 2015 Australia Stakes after a bleeding attack in the Group 1 Caulfield Stakes (2000m) back in October saw the horse banned from racing for three months.

He was odds-on favourite to win the race following his success in the spring that saw the horse win the Group 1 Memsie Stakes (1400m) and Group 1 Makybe Diva Stakes (1600m) before running a close second in the Group 1 Sir Rupert Clarke Charity Cup (1400m).

Ben Melham, who rode Dissident for the fifth consecutive time, was upbeat following the race. The jockey believed the track worked against Dissident, who had to chase the leaders the entire time.

“They just had him chasing the whole way,” Melham told TVN.

“He cornered a bit awkward, he has a bit of a big action for this track.

“It did take him a while to balance up but once he did he hit the line well.”

Despite the loss, it was still a solid run from the three time Group One winner and Moody has no plans to alter his autumn campaign for the horse.

“He’s going super, I thought he went good. I thought Ben (Melham) erred by going back as far as he did,” Moody said.

“He might as well have been in the three-deep line with the leaders as it turned out, but he got dragged back too far and became lost on that track.”

Dissident will progress as planned to the Group 1 CF Orr Stakes (1400m) at Caulfield on February 14.

Moody has won the $400,000 race at Caulfield Racecourse in four of the past five years with Typhoon Tracy, Black Caviar, and Moment Of Change. He will hope to add Dissident to that list in three weeks’ time.
