Chester Manifold Stakes 2012 Winner At The Heads

Danny O’Brien’s smart local galloper At The Heads scored their debut black-type triumph at Flemington on Saturday running away to take out the 2012 Chester Manifold Stakes.

Backing up from a close fifth to Let’s Be Happy at the track less than a fortnight ago, Hussonet five-year-old At The Heads ($10) showed good improvement to beat home the previously undefeated Peter Snowden-trained three-year-old Pied A Terre ($2.35F) by one and three quarter lengths in the $150,000 Listed Chester Manifold Stakes (1400m).

Clinton McDonald’s Second Effort ($9.50) ran a brave third only a neck further away while Peter Moody’s mare There’s Only One ($7), who was shooting for their sixth consecutive win, crossed in fourth just a nose ahead of their stablemate Shout Out Loud.

At The Heads has now won five of their 19 career starts to date earning $305,725 in prize money for connections, Saturday’s winning jockey James Winks very happy with the ride.

“He gave me a lovely ride,” Winks said.

“He bounced and he just idled nice.

“He got to the front and actually switched off but he got a little bit of a whiff that they were coming and he kicked in again and hit the line good.”

The horse’s only other stakes assignment to date was in the Group 2 Alister Clark Stakes (1600m) at Moonee Valley back in February 2010, a race At The Heads managed to finish a brave two lengths away fourth to Linton in.

After their strong performance in the Chester Manifold Stakes 2012, they could be given a shot at Group level again during the upcoming autumn carnivals.
