2012 Australian Cup – Can Manighar Beat the Favourites?

French gelding Manighar is one of five imports that will be chasing Australian Cup honours at Flemington tomorrow.

The Peter Moody trained six-year-old has been in good form heading in to the 2000 metre Group One stayers’ event and remains a chance of upsetting the favourites.


Manighar is third favourite to take out the 2012 Australian Cup

He finished third behind Lucas Cranach and Australian Cup second favourite Illo last start in the Peter Young Stakes, a result which followed victory in the Group Three TS Carlyon Cup.

Bookmaker.com.au currently have the French stayer as third favourite ($6.00) to take top billings in the $1 million race and if he produces a good run, he possesses the talent to beat Americain and Illo past the post.

The son of Linamix will come from barrier six, one gate inside Illo, and will have experienced jockey Luke Nolen in the saddle.
