Manighar Will Not Defend Title in 2013 BMW

A lack of fitness and form will see connections deny multiple Group 1 winner Manighar the opportunity to defend his title in the Group 1 2013 BMW (2400m) at Rosehill on Saturday week.

The seven-year-old won the prized $2.25 million staying race as part of a successful autumn campaign last year but has failed to replicate his 2012 lead-up form.

The import won both the Australian Cup and Ranvet Stakes on his way to the BMW last year but has finished 11th in the Chipping Norton Stakes and 13 lengths last in the Ranvet Stakes to begin his autumn campaign.

Manighar will instead have a freshen up before being aimed at the Group 1 Queen Elizabeth Stakes (2000m) on April 27, a race in which he finished second to More Joyous in last year.

“Manighar’s next run will be the Queen Elizabeth,” trainer Peter Moody said.

“He just lacks fitness. His work’s been solid but he just didn’t have the residual fitness out of the Spring that he did last year.”

Since starring last autumn, the Linamix gelding has experienced horrible luck and form, lasting just two starts in the spring before injury cruelled his campaign.

If Manighar doesn’t contest the Queen Elizabeth Stakes he will head to Queensland to tackle the Group 2 Hollindale Stakes (1800m) at the Gold Coast on May 4.

Manighar has raced in Queensland once before, running third in the Group 1 Doomben Cup in June.

His career record stands at 10 wins from 33 starts and he has collected more than $3 million in prizemoney.
