Sneak A Peek will be having his first run for ten months if Moody decides on a start in the Group 2 $175,000 Warwick Stakes (1400m) at Warwick Farm on Saturday.

The former European stayer has been unplaced from four starts for the Moody stable and hasn’t raced since finishing eighth to Dunaden in last year’s Group 1 $2.5m BMW Caulfield Cup (2400m) at Caulfield.

Moody had to scrap an Autumn campaign after Sneak A Peek had a pingle with a fence, but the top trainer says that he is over that injury now and is shaping up nicely.

“We think he’s going pretty well that’s why he’s in Sydney for these good races,” Moody told Racing Network.

“He cut a leg on a fence in the autumn, and although it wasn’t serious it was enough to keep him away from the track.”

Sneak A Peek will have to be at the top of his game to be competitive in the Warwick Stakes with seven Group 1 winners from Chris Waller’s nine entries among the nineteen nominations.

Waller’s Spring assault has well and truly stepped up with his Group 1 brigade of Beaten Up, Foreteller, Hawkspur, Metal Bender, Royal Descent, Sacred Falls and Shoot Out all ready to make their Carnival debut.

Other Group 1 winners nominated are the Guy Walter trained Streama, Gai Waterhouse’s import Glencadam Gold and Kiwi galloper Veyron from the Linda Laing stable.

While Rain Affair showed that he is back better than ever with a typical all the way win in the Group 3 $125,000 McGrath Real Estate Agents Missile Stakes (1200m) at Randwick on August 10, indicating that he will be hard to beat in anything he contests this Spring.

Moody has picked out the Group 2 $175,000 Chelmsford Stakes (1600m) at Randwick on September 7 as Sneak A Peek’s second run in and then will decide on a program for the rest of the Spring.
