Manawanui Clear Favourite In Mitchelton Wines Vase Nominations

Manawanui looks poised for yet another easy black type victory with only a handful of nominations recorded for the 2011 Mitchelton Wines Vase.

Just eight entries are currently on hand for the Group 2 contest capable of holding a field of 14.

It’s highly likely nominations will be extended by the Moonee Valley race Club, especially given the event is worth $200,000.

For the trainer of Manawanui, Ron Leemon, it must be a welcome sight after coming oh so close to beating Helmet last start in the Caulfield Guineas.

It’s not something new to him though as Leemon seems to continually place Manwanui in the best possible events.

Two starts back, again at Group 2 level, Manwanui ran in the Stan Fox Stakes against a comparable number of rivals.

He cantered to victory in what was a glorified training gallop and picked up more than $150,000 for the privilege.

Manawanui is in excellent form at the moment with only Helmet getting in the way of what would have been six victories in a row.

Given Helmet is now considered favourite for the 2011 Cox Plate it’s hard to see how Manawanui wouldn’t win this race on the basis he only last out by a head to him last start.

If there is to be any challenger to him in the 2011 Mitchelton Wines Vase it will most likely come in the form of Collar.

Even then though the horse will need to improve rapidly off his third placing behind Meethaq at Caulfield last time out.

You can bank on the fact you won’t be getting anywhere near even money for Manawanui in the Mitchelton Wines Vase but if you fancy taking the short odds Luxbet is the place to be.

Even if you only get an extra 10 cents when you’re talking such short quotes it could be an extra 50%.
