Manwanui On Track for 2013 Doomben 10,000

An encouraging trial from Manawanui at Rosehill this morning was enough to cement his place in Saturday week’s Doomben 10,000.

The four-year-old has had a horror 18 months with injury but showed he is on the road back to his best with a narrow trial win over Epaulette.

Only a wet track will prevent Manawanui lining up in the Brisbane feature sprint, with jockey Glyn Schofield thrilled after this morning’s hit-out.

“He is going to the Doomben 10,000 provided it is not wet, Ron said if it is a slow track he won’t run,” Schofield told TVN.

Manwanui has had just one start back since bleeding during a race in September, running fifth in the Hall Mark Stakes on April 27.

Schofield said the 2011 Golden Rose winner has come on considerably since that run and was left confident after disposing of highly-rated sprinter Epaulette.

“I probably had a lot more left than [Epaulette] had,” Schofield said.

“He has taken a lot of improvement out of his first run that is for sure.”

Manawanui was once considered one of the country’s most promising gallopers, starring as a spring three-year-old in 2011.

He won the Golden Rose and the Group 2 Moonee Valley Vase and finished second to Helmet in the Caulfield Guineas.

Third in this morning’s trial was veteran Chris Waller-trained gelding Rangirangdoo who is also heading to the Doomben 10,000.

“Both the Doomben 10,000 and the Stradbroke were considered after the strength of his first-up run,” Waller said.

He will get a lot of weight in the Stradbroke but if he runs well in the 10,000 then of course he will run regardless of weight he will get.”
