Southern Speed Has Revenge Chance – 2012 Ranvet Stakes

Southern Speed has a chance to avenge his tight Australian Cup defeat when he goes head to head with French gelding Manighar in the 2012 Ranvet Stakes at Rosehill this weekend.

The four-year-old mare was beaten by a nose in the Group 1 Australian Cup at Flemington but will get her chance to get one back over the same 2000 metre distance on Saturday.

They will get a good look at each other as it was today announced they would start side by side in the Group 1 $400,000 stayer’s race.

Southern Speed and Manighar will again go head to head in the Ranvet Stakes

Southern Speed and Manighar

Craig Williams will ride Caulfield Cup winner Southern Speed from barrier three while regular Peter Moody jockey Luke Nolen will be in the saddle of Manighar from gate four.

Manighar has been in tremendous form so far this year, having won the TS Carlyon Cup and finishing third in the Peter Young Stakes before taking out the Australian Cup.

The six-year-old has eight wins from 25 starts and has collected over $1.2 million in prize money.

Southern Speed has also been in good form in 2012, having won the John Dillon Stakes in January before finishing second to wonder mare Black Caviar in the Group 1 CF Orr Stakes.

Southern Speed pushed Manighar all the way to the line in the Australian Cup and will be looking to go one better on Saturday.

Even if she is good enough to edge out Manighar, the four-year-old will still have to topple a host of other quality horses including Chipping Norton Stakes winner Shoot Out.

The Chris Waller trained Shoot Out has been in excellent form in 2012, recording a third-place effort in the Expressway Stakes and a second in the Apollo Stakes before winning the Group 1 Chipping Norton.

Other quality horses in the 2012 Ranvet Stakes field include John Thompson trained Trusting, four time Group 1 winner Wall Street and Gai Waterhouse trained Tullamore.
