Peter Moody Talks 2016 Caulfield Cup Chances

Former champion trainer Peter Moody of Black Caviar fame featured on the Ladbrokes Daily Wire this week and spoke to a number of connections about their Caulfield Cup 2016 prospects in the first spring major this Saturday.

Over his many years as an esteemed trainer Moody saddled up 13 runners in the Caulfield Cup, now the world’s richest mile and a half handicap, for just the one third place finish.

This year the $3 million Group 1 BMW Caulfield Cup (2400m) runs on the weekend with a capacity field of 18 stayers set to face off.

It looks a case of Ciaron Maher’s locally-trained mare Jameka taking on the international raiders, with last year’s Crown Oaks winner the only home based chance under $10 for the win in the latest Caulfield Cup odds at Ladbrokes.com.au.

On Tuesday Moody spoke on the Daily Wire with the Ladbrokes ambassador assessing the chances of a number of the key Caulfield Cup fancies this spring, including Jameka.

Out to become the first Caulfield Cup winning mare since Southern Speed (2011), Jameka has had an almost faultless lead-up to her test on the weekend.

She returns home to Caulfield after taking on the boom Sydney horse Harntell in the Turnbull Stakes at Flemington on October 2 and jockey Nicholas Hall has wasted through the week to make the lightweight of 52kg to stay aboard on the weekend.

“I’m very happy with her preparation,” Maher told Moody.

“I think she’s improved each run and Saturday should be hopefully no different.”

Hall chases his second Caulfield Cup winning ride after the success aboard the Robert Hickmott-trained Fawkner (2013) three years ago and highly rates Jameka’s chances of handing him that

“She’s had the perfect campaign going into this Caulfield Cup,” Hall said.

As well as the recent Naturalism Stakes winning Myboycharlie four-year-old, who comes off a Turnbull Stakes second, Maher saddles-up two other runners in this year’s Caulfield Cup field with Set Square and Pemberley.

Pemberley is the $61 roughie of the trio in the latest Caulfield Cup betting markets despite a gun run at the track / distance last Saturday.

The in-form Darci Brahma five-year-old handled the step up to 2400m without a worry on Guineas Day finishing only a quarter-length away third behind Assign in the Group 2 Herbert Power Stakes.

That effort saw him sneak into the Caulfield Cup line-up on the quick back-up, the gelding getting in on the 50kg lightweight with apprentice Ben Allen snapping up his first ride in the classic.

“He’s going really well that horse, he was probably a bit stiff on Saturday,” Maher told Moody, speaking of Pemberley.

“I had a bit of a query on the mile and a half, but he certainly squashed that. He ran through the line really strongly.”
