Trainer Peter Moody has revealed that promising colt Weinholt will be ridden quieter in the McKenzie Stakes (1200m) at Moonee Valley on Saturday after he over raced first-up in the Sweeney Can Do Agents Handicap (1000m) earlier this month.

Weinholt was asked to work hard in the early stages of the race by jockey Daniel Stackhouse and tired in the final two hundred metres to finish third behind Clevadude and Cauthen.

The Stratum colt will meet Clevadude and Cauthen again on Saturday and Moody plans on changing the racing tactics for the three-year-old, with leading jockey Luke Nolen back on board, in an attempt to turn-the-tables on the leading duo.

“He was ridden too aggressively last start and we will ride him more conservatively this start and give him a chance to finish off,” Moody told Thoroughmedia.

“He pushed forward from an awkward gate, worked too hard and didn’t finish the race off.

“Saturday he will be ridden more conservatively and you should see an improved result.

“Whether he can turn it around against Clevadude and Cauthen I’m not convinced but ridden in that matter we will get a better performance.”

Weinholt has been included in the nominations for the Group 1 Caulfield Guineas (1600m) that we will be run at the home of the Melbourne Racing Club on October 12 but Moody plans on reassessing the 2013 Spring Racing Carnival plans for the lightly-raced colt after his second-up performance this weekend.

“Saturday’s race will dictate where he goes,” Moody said.

Moody dominated the card at Caulfield last Saturday, picking up wins with Hanks, Kiss A Rose and Thy, but only has one other runner at Moonee Valley tomorrow, Pindan Pearl in the opening event, after Angels Beach was scratched from the Dr. Sheahan Plate (1200m).
