Southern Speed Again Chasing Manighar – The BMW 2012

Australian Cup runner-up Southern Speed gets a chance to again go head to head with Manighar in this weekend’s prestigious 2012 BMW at Rosehill Gardens.

Southern Speed

Southern Speed is the third favourite behind Americain and Manighar in the 2012 BMW

The four-year-old lost by a nose to the Manighar in the Australian Cup and finished fifth to the star import in the Ranvet Stakes two weeks ago.

Southern Speed has been in reasonable form this year, winning her first-up start and running second to Black Caviar in the CF Orr Stakes prior to the Australian Cup.

She has her work cut if she is to win the $2.25 million event this Saturday, having to overcome race-favourite Americain as well as Manighar.

She will be ridden by regular jockey Craig Williams on Saturday and will come from barrier two.
