Mawingo Ready for Manighar in Doomben Cup 2012

The now Mornington based galloper Mawingo isn’t hiding from Peter Moody’s ace import Manighar with their trainer Anthony Freedman confident of a competitive clash in the 2012 Doomben Cup in Brisbane this Saturday.

Linamix six-year-old Manighar enjoyed three Group 1 wins on the trot earlier this season before their last start second to champion mare More Joyous in the Queen Elizabeth Stakes at Randwick on Sydney Cup Day.

They are now the raging pre-field favourite to notch their fourth elite level in the $500,000 Group 1 Kirks Doomben Cup (2000m) on Saturday, acceptances and barriers for which are due out on Tuesday.

While Manighar is the obvious horse to beat despite the Doomben Cup being their first Queensland run, Freedman is hopeful that his four-year-old Tertullian stallion Mawingo can give the favourite a run for their money.

The imported German has good Group 1 form in both Germany and Italy, including their fourth in the German Derby last July, and has had two runs down under since joining Freedman’s stables early this year.

In their Australian debut they beat Eraset home by two lengths over the Flemington mile on April 14 before their last start third behind Auckland Cup winner Shez Sinsational in the Group 2 AD Hollindale Stakes (1800m) at the Gold Coast on a Heavy (8) on May 5.

They get the chance to turn the tables on Shez Sinsational and Hollindale runner-up Lights Of Heaven, a stablemate of Manighar, with all three expected to be accepted for the Doomben Cup.

Mawingo’s owners, including Australian Bloodstock’s Jamie Lovett, will use the Doomben Cup run as a guide to whether the horse will be one of the top liners in the upcoming Melbourne Spring Racing Carnival.

“If he is a spring contender he has to run, and run well, against these sort of horses,” Lovett said.

“We qualified for the Caulfield Cup with his third at the Gold Coast but we need to get a bit more prize money to make sure he will get in the field.”

Lovett knows that improvement is needed on their Hollindale third but believes the horse will have it when stepped up an extra 200m for the Cup.

“I’m not making any excuses for getting beaten at the Gold Coast, I don’t even think the wet track was an excuse,” he said.

“At 1800 metres, he just didn’t have the zip in his legs.

“I think his best trip is going to be a mile-and-a-half and he can run some great sectionals once he gets over that trip.

“He sort of grinded (in the Hollindale) I wouldn’t say he was dour but he didn’t have the turn of foot to match it with the other two (Shez Sinsational and Lights Of Heaven).”

For their two most recent runs Mawingo has been ridden by Daniel Moor but Nash Rawiller will take over on Saturday.

“Nash is the best jockey in the country and, when you can get him, you always book him,” Lovett said.

“He won on Lucas in the St George (Stakes) and has won a couple of races on Uate as well.

“You know what you are going to get with Nash and that’s a great ride, and he is worth a couple of lengths in a tight finish.”

Manighar, Shez Sinsational, Lights Of Heaven and Mawingo are set to open the top four fancies in the Doomben Cup odds, in that order, once the field and markets are released at
