BMW 2012 Distance to Suit Americain

French jockey Gerald Mosse is confident the 2400 metre 2012 BMW this weekend will suit start import Americain following his loss to Manighar over 2000 metres in the Australian Cup.


Americain will relish the extra 400m in the BMW after finishing third in the Australian Cup

He will again go head to head with Manighar but Mosse, who will be riding Americain for the first time since November, believes the extra 400 metres puts things right back in Americain’s favour.

“Over 2000 metres [Manighar] is maybe a bit quicker … he can react slightly faster,” Mosse said.

“Manighar is coming in form but I have no problem to compete against him.

“Over a mile-and-a-half (2400m) we are going to be there.”

The markets agree, with the David Hayes-trained Americain currently $1.90 favourite at preferred bookmaker

Manighar is paying $4.20 but has the advantage of a favourable barrier draw (6) compared to Americain who yesterday drew the outside (10).

Manighar, part of leading trainer Peter Moody’s stable, has been targeted for the BMW all year and is coming into the race in sensational form.

The French gelding backed up his Australian Cup victory with another Group 1 win two weeks ago in the Ranvet Stakes.

Mosse rode Americain when he won the Melbourne Cup in 2012 and is excited to be riding at Rosehill for the first time in what is a short cameo visit to Australia.

Outside of his important ride on Americain in the feature $2.25 million BMW, Mosse is hoping he can pick up some more work on Saturday.

“This week I believe will be a great atmosphere,” Mosse said.

“Definitely the opportunity to get a few more rides would be good.

“The feeling when you ride, it’s much more fun than when you are in the jockey’s room.”

Mosse rode Americain in a light gallop yesterday, in what is set to be the horse’s first time racing in the harbour city.

The market for the BMW is now open and is offering the best prices.
