Samaready Heads Manikato Stakes 2013 Odds

After winning her opening two starts this preparation, Mick Price’s former star juvenile Samaready has opened top of the 2013 Manikato Stakes odds for Friday evening’s Moonee Valley meet.

The now four-year-old daughter of More Than Ready won the Group 1 Blue Diamond Stakes (1200m) as a two-year-old last year, one of her opening four consecutive career wins, before suffering her first loss when third to Pierro in the Group 1 Golden Slipper (1200m).

Her autumn campaign was regulated to just one run because of an injury set back that saw her spend a year on the sidelines.

Samaready came back at Caulfield on August 31 this year however and enjoyed a first-up win in a Group 3, 1100m sprint.

She retained her unbeaten status this campaign then scoring a blistering four length victory over Queensland champion Buffering in the Group 1 Moir Stakes (1200m) at Moonee Valley on September 27.

This weekend Samaready returns to the Valley for a shot at more elite level success, this time taking on a field of 11 rivals in the $1 million Group 1 Sportingbet Manikato Stakes (1200m).

Drawn in gate seven with regular rider Craig Newitt staying on, Samaready has the same barrier she won the Moir from at the same field off the same one month break between runs.

This has seen her open the short $2.70 favourite in Manikato Stakes betting at

Just two of her rivals then are also under double figures to win with:

  • #2 Buffering ($6.50) – Can Rob Heathcote’s always honest six-year-old finally break through at elite level? This will be Group 1 start number 18 for the Queenslander who has run top three in 10 of those, their last start was a distant second to Samaready in their Moir Stakes, he should have improved since but will need to be at his best to turn the tables on the mare especially in a race he’s been luckless in over the past two years.
  • #1 Lucky Nine ($8) – International draw card in this race, Caspar Fownes’ Hong Kong based Dubawi gelding was last seen putting three lengths on Aussie horse Bel Sprint in the Group 1 Krisflyer at Kranji back in May, this is their maiden Aussie start and there are some queries about their fitness with the trainer tipping them to peak in their main aim – the Patainck Farm Classic on November 9.

It’s a relatively open Manikato Stakes market after that with a logjam of gallops under $20 including Chris Waller’s last start Group 2 winning mare Arinosa ($11), the rails drawn Bel Sprinter ($12) who was runner-up to Lucky Nine in Singapore and the Gary Portelli-trained Rebel Dane ($12) coming off a win in the Group 1 Sir Rupert Clarke Stakes over the 1400m.
