Moody assured of fourth Melbourne title

The scoreboard will show Peter Moody has trained fewer winners in Melbourne this year than in his previous three dominant seasons.

But Moody will still be premier trainer for the fourth successive year and he'll still be among the top three trainers in the country - and he'll be hungry for winners at the penultimate city meeting for the season.

In a season that contained two of Black Caviar's greatest wins, Moody has trained 68 city winners and 199 overall.

And at Caulfield on Saturday he has some outstanding chances of increasing his tally, headed by what he sees as one of the each-way bets of the day, Mr Make Believe in the Group Three Bletchingly Stakes.

A $10 chance in race-eve betting, Mr Make Believe returns to his favourite track and his preferred surface in a race that has no standout runner.

Since he won over 1000m at Caulfield first-up three runs back, Mr Make Believe has twice tailed the field.

But Moody blamed himself for the latest when the gelding finished last behind Riziz down the Flemington straight.

"I regret running him at Flemington because the ground was too firm," Moody said.

"He didn't stretch out on it and I don't think he was at home down the straight. He'll be much better on his home track going around a bend."

Moody's day begins with the shortest-priced of his six runner, Monkstone in the Two-Year-Old Handicap (1200m).

A $1 million Fastnet Rock colt, Monkstone did well to finish second at his debut run after missing the start.

Moody said he isn't expecting any problems at the barrier this time and believes a repeat will put him in the finish.

He also has the mares Dayita and Storm Burst in the Tracy Thomas Handicap (1800m), both of whom are giving weight to some handy males.

The three-year-old fillies Kukla and Are There Any represent the leading stable in the Richard Hogg Handicap (1400m) and the former Patinack runner Kneeling has its third run for Moody in the Daniel McMillan Handicap (1200m).
