Moody chatted to numerous trainers and jockeys heading to Flemington on Saturday and also got the thoughts of Damien Oliver on the chances of Coolmore Stud Stakes hopeful Flying Artie.

Oliver won’t be riding at Flemington because of suspension and has been replaced on Flying Artie by Cox Plate winning jockey Hugh Bowman, but gave Moody a good run down of the Mick Price trained colt and stablemate Extreme Choice.

“There has been nothing at all between them all the way through their career,” Oliver told Moody On The Mic.

“I would be happy to ride either one of them. Flying Artie is going good. It is a great race. You saw that trial down the straight at Flemington the other day with those nice three year olds. It looks like being nearly the race of the carnival I think.”

Bowman was also on hand at Caulfield and rode Flying Artie in a gallop with Extreme Choice and was happy with the three year old’s work.

“I suppose Extreme Choice has the runs on the board having beaten the weight for age horses but I will be honest I was very pleased with the feel this horse gave me this morning, I am pretty satisfied to be on him,” Bowman said.

Moody also caught up with trainers Mick Price, Andrew Noblet and Anthony Cummings as well as jockey Noel Callow.
