Trainer Peter Moody is expecting the speedy filly Avenue to bounce back from a first-up defeat in Friday night’s Group III Champagne Stakes (1200m) at Moonee Valley.

Avenue resumed with an honest second at Flemington on September 5 with the winner of the race Irish Lights franking the form with an outstanding win in the Group III Thousand Guineas Prelude at Caulfield last Saturday.

“She got beaten by a filly who looks like a really strong chance for the Thousand Guineas,” Moody said. “Avenue did most of the work near the speed and got run over by a filly with a big future.”

The daughter of Anabaa was an impressive debut winner at Moonee Valley in February, showing the same liking of the tricky track as her illustrious full-sister, the 2006 Australia Stakes winner Virage De Fortune.

“Her ability around Moonee Valley is an advantage she’ll have on Friday night,” Moody said. “She’s an on-pace runner which helps at the Valley as well.”

Moody said Avenue will have no trouble with the rise to 1200 metres, especially if jockey Luke Nolen can give the three-year-old a gentle trip near the speed.

Meanwhile, the Moody stable will saddle two runners, Umanugget and Star Scream, in the Group II Stutt Stakes (1600m).

“They’ll both go pretty well,” Moody said. “Star Scream will race near the speed while Umanugget will sit off them and need a bit of speed on.

“They’re both in good order and should be hard to beat, especially Star Scream who makes his own luck.”
