Can Manighar Beat Americain Again? – The BMW 2012

Australian Cup winner Manighar will be out to record a third consecutive victory this Saturday when he contests the $2.25 million 2012 BMW (2400m) at Sydney’s Rosehill Gardens.


Manighar is chasing a third Group 1 victory in The BMW

The Peter Moody-trained French gelding has been in sizzling form this year, winning the high profile Australian Cup and backing up to win the Group 1 Ranvet Stakes two weeks ago.

He was impressive over 2000 metres in the Australian Cup, finishing just ahead of local mare Southern Speed and this weekend’s race favourite Americain.

Currently paying $4.20 at, Manighar has drawn well for the prized event and will come out barrier six.

Keep reading below for the stats that matter and reasons why Manighar can and can’t produce a rare third consecutive Group 1 victory.
