Peter Moody is looking for a vastly-improved performance from Do Ra Mi in Saturday’s Group Two Let’s Elope Stakes at Flemington after she failed to fire first-up.

Do Ra Mi finished only 12th of 15 to stablemate Mid Summer Music in the Cockram Stakes (1200m) at Caulfield on August 13.

“She disappointed us in the Cockram but her work was super going into it and it’s been super since,” Moody said.

“So I think back to the bigger spaces at Flemington she’s drawn (nine) to get a midfield or slightly worse run and hopefully at the track and distance (1400m) at which she’s run super on both occasions will lead to her turning it around.

“There’s nothing at home to say she won’t run super because she’s working as well as any horse in the yard.”

Last autumn, the Savabeel mare went forward and was runner-up to Southern Speed in the Group Three Vanity before coming from last for a barnstorming victory over Brazilian Pulse in the Group Two Kewney Stakes, both over 1400m at Flemington.

Luke Nolen will ride Do Ra Mi while the other main chance of Moody’s four runners is Mid Summer Music to again be ridden by Ben Melham.

“She’s unfortunately drawn very awkwardly (16 of 16) tomorrow and will have to go back to last one would presume,” Moody said of the Oamaru Force mare who has won nine of her 14 starts.

“It’s probably not the worst scenario at her first run at the trip because she has a hell of a turn of foot so it will come down to tempo.

“If they go very steadily early she’s going to find it hard but if they do roll along, and you would think in a 16-horse field there would be some speed about, she’ll be very strong late and it will give her every chance to run the 1400 metres out.”

Making up Moody’s numbers are Willow Creek, who has the blinkers back on and will be ridden by Chris Symons, and Zelsnitz, to be handled by Jason Benbow.

“They’ll either be off to the breeding barn on Monday or looking at better races depending on performance,” Moody said.

Meanwhile, trainer Peter Snowden said he was very happy with race favourite Parables who was an unlucky runner-up in the Cockram when resuming.

“She’s done really well. It’s a good race for her on paper, a solid race with some good fillies in it but her first-up run was excellent,” Snowden said.

“Just bad luck beat her and if she can reproduce that run again I’ve got no reason to think she won’t run well as she’s drawn a nice gate (seven).”

The Lonhro mare, to be ridden by Kerrin McEvoy, has been backed from $4.40 to $3.60 with TAB Sportsbet while Biancon Rose has drifted from $4.80 to $6 and Mid Summer Music has eased from $5.50 to $7.50.

Pinker Pinker is at $8 with Zaira at $10, Keep The Peace at $12 and Do Ra Mi at $13.
