Manighar On Track for Doomben Cup 2012

Star French import has the opportunity to add yet another Group 1 victory to his already impressive resume when he lines up in the inside barrier in tomorrow’s Group 1 $500,000 2012 Doomben Cup (2000m).


Manighar will attempt to add a Doomben Cup title to his impressive resume tomorrow

The Peter Moody-trained gelding is in career best form, having recently completed a rare Australian Cup, Ranvet Stakes and BMW treble followed by a runner-up finish to More Joyous in the Queen Elizabeth Stakes.

He is racing at the distance he won the Australian Cup and the Ranvet and will enjoy the return of regular jockey Luke Nolen who was absent on Black Caviar duty for his Queen Elizabeth Stakes run.

Not sure whether Manighar can score another elite level victory? Keep reading for the stats that matter as well reasons to back or sack the French six-year-old tomorrow.
