Moody Tips The Maid for Thousand Guineas 2014 Win

After a disappointing last start effort at the track trainer Peter Moody is confident his Group 1 performed filly Bring Me The Maid can turn her form around with an improved effort back at Caulfield in Saturday’s 2014 Thousand Guineas.

Held on Caulfield Guineas Day for the first time, this year’s $500,000 Group 1 Schweppes Thousand Guineas (1600m) drew a final field of 11 fillies.

Wearing the number one saddlecloth and drawn nicely in barrier four with Luke Nolen to ride is Moody’s daughter of Sebring, Bring Me The Maid.

Nolen retains the ride having ridden the Golden Slipper third placegetter and dual Group 2 winner for all three of her starts this time in.

Things kicked off well at Randwick in August when she thrived on a wet track to win the Silver Shadow Stakes (1200m) first-up over Memorial.

Her form went amiss however in the Group 1 Golden Rose (1400m) next time out as she was only able to finish three and a quarter lengths away eighth behind the undefeated James & Bart Cummings-trained Hallowed Crown.

Bring Me The Maid was then well beaten again in her Caulfield debut last time out on September 28 when seventh, beating home just two other runners in the Group 2 Thousand Guineas Prelude (1400m).

In an attempt to sharpen her up Moody adds a tongue-tie and blinkers to her gear for the Thousand Guineas on the weekend, a move made primarily for his piece of mind.

“The blinkers and the tongue-tie are to make me feel better more than anything,” he told Racing Victoria.

He has been at a loss to explain her poor Prelude performance saying that all of her subsequent work has been top class, indicating to him she was ready to atone with a Group 1 upset on Saturday.

“Her form was impeccable until her last run; she was the ruling favourite for the Guineas before the other day and let’s be honest, it was extremely disappointing,” Moody said.

“But everything at home has been positive; her track work has been super, vets and farriers and chiropractors have been over her; we can’t fault her.

“It’s a big turnaround from a disappointing run to a Group 1 win but the sort of form she showed on the training track on Tuesday morning, it would not surprise me.”

In the latest Thousand Guineas odds at Ladbrokes.com.au Bring Me The Maid pays $7 as one of five single figure chances.

Betting is led by early market mover Lumosty in from $5.50 to $4.20 to go back-to-back following the Robert Smerdon-trained Fastnet Rock filly’s eye-catching nine-length win over 1423m at Sale on October 1.

Also well liked in the markets are the likes of Group 1 winner Go Indy Go ($5) who could be 2014 Cox Plate bound at the end of the month and the flying Afleet Esprit ($50) on the rails and shooting for her fourth straight win.
