2012 Manikato Stakes Betting Update – Buffering Firms

Sentimental favourite for tonight’s Manikato Stakes 2012 at Moonee Valley, Buffering is also now the odds-on favourite for the sprint showdown having been well supported in the markets since betting opened.


Buffering is the firming favourite and market mover for tonight's Manikato Stakes 2012

Robert Heathcote’s super consistent Mossman gelding, who has only missed a place six times over a 28 start career to date, is one of 10 horses engaged in Moonee Valley Race 6 at 9:15pm (AEST) tonight – the $750,000 Group 1 Manikato Stakes (1200m).

And it is obvious the five-year-old is the one the punters want with Buffering, out to finally score that elusive Group 1 victory after 11 honest attempts at elite level, having been backed in from $2 to $1.95 in the Manikato Stakes odds at bookmaker.com.au.

They have the right draw, barrier one having produced the past three Manikato Stakes winners, and also the right form with two Group 2 wins in Melbourne this time in including the AJ Moir Stakes over this tack and distance last month.

So are there any other horses getting some love in the Manikato Stakes betting markets?

Second favouirte Sea Siren also looks to have her supporters with John O’Shea’s resuming Fastnet Rock mare coming in from $6.50 to $6 to beat Buffering the way she did when the duo ran one-two in the Group 1 Doomben 10,000 (1350m) during the winter.

Making her four-year-old debut tonight Sea Siren is already a dual Group 1 champ having also taken out the BTC Cup (1200m) in Brisbane back in May, but she failed to make it three straight when she ran a disappointing ninth in the Stradbroke Handicap last start – a race Buffering finished second in.

Peter Moody’s AJ Moire Stakes runner-up Ready To Rip has come in from $17 to $15 to turn the tables on their last start conqueror after going down by just a long neck, while the Mark Kavanagh-trained We’re Gonna Rock, the six-year-old coming off a second in the Group 1 Sir Rupert Clarke Stakes (1400m) at Caulfield from September 30, has also had a tickle coming in from $13 to $12

There are also a number of Manikato Stakes hopefuls the punters have abandoned with the prices on quite a few easing right out including:

  • #2 Temple Of Boom ($19 out to $26) –  A big drift for Tony Gollan’s Group 1 The Galaxy winner, the Piccolo six-year-old not having won a race since their big win in April and out to improve on a distant first-up fifth to Buffering in the Schillaci Stakes two weeks back
  • #9 Satin Shoes ($31 out to $41) – Clarry Conners’ in-form mare has been outclassed in all of Group 1 assignments to date but at these odds Conners is saying give her a go as the now four-year-old has recorded three Group placings from as many starts this time in
  • #10 Lone Rock ($7 out to $8.50) – Robert Smerdon’s mare was seventh in the Schillaci and would need to improve about four lengths to beat Buffering here
