Peter Moody Plans Royal Ascot Raid

Peter Moody is hoping to continue the tradition of Aussie sprinters dominating the Royal Ascot Carnival when he saddles up Hinchinbrook at the famed English track later this month.

Hinchinbrook will head to England next month to tackle the Group races at Royal Ascot

Moody’s one and only raid of the Royal Ascot meeting came in 2007 when he had Magnus finish third in the King’s Stand stakes behind fellow Australian Miss Andretti.

Other Australian winners of the King’s Stand include Choisir (2003) Takeover Target (2006) and Scenic Blast (2009). While last year Starspangledbanner became the first Australian horse to take out the 1200m Golden Jubilee.

Despite the fact that Hinchinbrook has only won two of his 14 career starts (they were in his first two starts) Moody believes he has the form to cause an upset.

“On what I know of the opposition, I’m happy to take them on. His formline behind Black Caviar and Hay List is similar to the likes of Crystal Lilly and Star Witness,” said Moody.

Hinchinbrook has been placed in four Group One races including the All Aged Stakes (1400m), the William Reid Stakes (1200m), the Oakleigh Plate (1100m) and the Inglis Sires Produce (1200m).

The three year old trialled brilliantly at Cranbourne last week, completing the 800m jump out in 47.35 seconds on a slow track.

Moody specifically elected Cranbourne as the venue for the trial because its uphill straight is similar to what Hinchinbrook will face at Royal Ascot.

“That’s what we’ve trained him for. To be strong up that hill.” Moody said.

Hinchinbrook left for England last night with the Danny O’Brien trained Star Witness. The two horses will be stabled together during their time at Royal Ascot.

English bookmakers are wary of the Aussie pair and have installed Star Witness as an $8.00 chance for the King’s Stand while Hinchinbrook is quoted at $17.00 for the Golden jubilee.
