While the rich Caulfield Cup day looms, another of Victoria's country cups will be contested on Thursday - the $135,000 Moe Cup.

It's an Open Handicap over 2025m, with the winner taking home $81,000. A very handy field of stayers has accepted for the event including Peter Moody's inform runner Kenjorwood . 

Consistent early in his career, the five-year-old has finally learnt what the racing caper is all about. From his first 16 starts, the Snippetson gelding had a win and six minor placings. But this campaign that record has improved markedly. From five runs this time in, Kenjorwood has notched three victories and two seconds - all with apprentice Regan Bayliss onboard. His record now reads 21: 4-7-1, with $235,000 in the bank.

Moody has again given Bayliss the ride in a race where apprentices can not claim with senior stable rider Luke Nolen on Quick Snitzel . Last start, Bayliss rode Kenjorwood to a four-length victory in a 1700m Open Plate at Caulfield. The runner up Commanding Time franked that form taking out the Benalla Cup at its next outing.

In a race of many chances, local Hvasstan  boasts strong city form, consistent conveyances Surpass  and Road Tripping  are dangers, while the enigmatic Extra Zero  can never be discounted.
