British General Given Stakes Test in 2013 Chester Manifold Stakes

Strong recent performances by British General have provided trainer Dan O’Sullivan with the confidence to give him his first shot at stakes level this Saturday in the Listed $120,000 2013 Chester Manifold Stakes (1400m).

While O’Sullivan nominated the five-year-old on Monday, he was considering leaving him for an easier race on Saturday week but now believes he is on track for black-type success.

“I was going to take an easier path with him and run him in a 0-89 the following week but I just thought if everything went alright we’d go down this path,” O’Sullivan told Racing Victoria.

The General Nediym gelding will be chasing a third consecutive Flemington victory this weekend, with his most recent performance a one-length win over 1400m in the George Watson Handicap on New Year’s Day.

O’Sullivan did not originally believe that he would be any more than a sprinter but from what he has shown is now hoping he will be able to compete at 1600m in the future.

“Now he’s relaxing better he’ll probably step up to the mile in the future. ”

British General has been a consistent performer as he has risen through the grades with his record standing at six wins from 10 starts for more than $150,000 in prizemoney.

He is one of 11 horses who will contest the Chester Manifold Stakes this weekend and one of only two last-start winners in the field.

The other is the Kane Harris-trained Future Solution who broke a nine-month drought to claim the Spotless Plate at Flemington on December 22.

Others contesting the Chester Manifold Stakes include Tony Vasil-trained pair Veewap and Under The Eiffel and nine-year-old veteran Rockpecker.
