Ladbrokes ambassador and champion trainer Peter Moody with mic in hand did the rounds at the Melbourne Cup parade on Monday and got the last word from several prominent trainers and jockeys on the eve of the Group 1 $6m Emirates Melbourne Cup (3200m) at Flemington today.
Moody caught up trainer Ciaron Maher who will saddle up Caulfield Cup winner Jameka in the Melbourne Cup with Nick Hall in the saddle again.
“Nick has so much confidence in her he thinks he can win any race. Even before the Caulfield Cup he was talking about Melbourne Cup,” Maher told ‘Moody On The Mic, Melbourne Cup edition‘.
“Perfect draw, looks like there is going to be a nice bit of speed and that will enable her to just pop in, relax hopefully and have a good kick when he asks her for it.”
Moody also got the last word from Craig Williams who rides Geelong Cup winner Qewy, Cox Plate winning jockey Hugh Bowman who rides Who Shot Thebarman for Chris Waller and Dwayne Dunn who is aboard the Lee and Anthony Freedman trained Our Ivanhowe.
Moody found five times Melbourne Cup winning trainer Lee Freedman among the crowd and discussed the chances of Our Ivanhowe and Exospheric who he will saddle up with co-trainer and brother Anthony Freedman and he also caught up with Big Orange’s English trainer Michael Bell.
