Small Stan Fox Stakes 2011 Field Suits Manawanui

A diminutive final field of just six three-year-olds have been accepted for Saturday’s 2011 Stan Fox Stakes at Rosehill, Ron Leemon’s talented galloper Manawanui to face the same small number of rivals they did last start when winning the Group 1 Golden Slipper.


Manawanui is odds-on favourite to win their fifth consecutive in the 2011 Stan Fox Stakes on Saturday

Everything is lining up in Oratorio gelding Manawanui’s favour for the win in the $250,000 Group 2 Stan Fox Stakes (1500m) as they return to Rosehill looking for their fifth consecutive victory.

Since running third on debut to the Bart Cummings-trained Do You Think at Canterbury back in March, Manawanui has won every one of their races with their two runs this season particularly impressive.

First-up they won the Group 3 Up & Coming Stakes (1300m) at Warwick Farm on August 20 by a commanding four and a half lengths.

Twenty-one days later they made their Rosehill debut to score a gritty final-stride victory, beating odds-on favourite Smart Missile in the Golden Rose on September 10.

Now on Saturday they will look to add the Stan Fox Stakes title to their record, Manwanui stepping up to the 1500 metres for the first time before facing off against Smart Missile again on October 8 for the $1 million Group 1 Caulfield Guineas over the mile.

Drawn well in barrier two, Manwanui will again be ridden by Glyn Schofield on Saturday and have unsurprisingly opened odds-on favourite in the Stan Fox Stakes betting at a quote of $1.22 through Luxbet.

The only other Stan Fox Stakes hopeful at single-figure odds is State Of Wealth who is paying $8.50 at Luxbet to upset the favourite.

Drawn in barrier three with Christian Reith engaged for the ride, Brian Smith’s Brisbane raider State Of Wealth makes their interstate debut on Saturday and comes off back-to-back wins in Queensland.

Other Stan Fox challenges with claims are the David Payne-trained gelding Cocky Raider ($10) with the inside running from barrier one and Clarry Conner’s Irish Times ($14) coming off a win over 1400 metres at Newcastle.

Finishing off 2011 Schweppes Stan Fox Stakes final field and odds are lightly-raced Choisir filly Choice Words ($41) having just her second career start, and roughie of the pack, the David Hayes-trained Magic Albert filly Roma Giaconda ($71) who broke their maiden status last start with a win at Albury on September 12.
