Manighar Early Favourite – 2012 Doomben Cup Betting

French import Manighar is the favourite in the early betting market ahead of the 2012 Doomben Cup (2000m) after a dominant autumn campaign that saw him win three Group 1 races.


Manighar is the early Doomben Cup favourite

Trained by Peter Moody, the six-year-old is paying a short $3.00 ( to win the Group 1 feature which will take place at Brisbane’s Doomben Racecourse on May 19.

He scored a rare Australian Cup, Ranvet Stakes and BMW treble this autumn before ending his campaign with a second-place finish to champion mare More Joyous in the Queen Elizabeth Stakes.

Manighar is followed in the early market by Melbourne Cup hopeful Mawingo who sits just behind the six-year-old at $5.00.

Rangirangdoo and former Melbourne Cup winner Americain ($8.00) are next back in the betting market and the American import will get a chance to get one back on Manighar if both are named in the final field.

The seven-year-old stayer went head-to-head with the French star three times in Group 1 events this autumn and came off second best every time, including in the prestigious BMW where he started as race favourite.

Gai Waterhouse gelding Western Symbol is not too far behind at $8.50 and has been in sensational form so far in 2012.

The New Zealand five-year-old has won his last three races which have included the Group 3 HKJC Stakes and the Listed JRA Plate.

Fellow New Zealand product Shez Sinsational ($10.00) has just touched down on Australian soil ahead of the Brisbane Winter Carnival and she will have her first hit-out this weekend in the Group 2 Hollindale Stakes at the Gold Coast.

There are plenty of big names further back in the early betting market including two-time Group 1 winner Secret Admirer ($12.00), Michael Moroney-trained Wall Street ($16.00) and former Melbourne Cup winner Efficient ($21.00).
