2013 Manikato Stakes Betting Update – Samaready Shortens

Tonight the action of the two-meet Cox Plate Carnival kicks off under the lights at Moonee Valley Racecourse, the evening’s feature being the Group 1 sprint showdown – the Manikato Stakes 2013.

The $1 million Group 1 Sportingbet Manikato Stakes (1200m) runs as the last of the night scheduled to jump at 10:00pm (AEST) as Race 8 with all 12 final acceptors still in the mix.

Manikato Stakes betting is firmly led by one horse with the Mick Price-trained Samaready the favourite and market mover.

After opening at $2.70 to become a triple Group 1 winner, the four-year-old More Than Ready mare is now into $2.50.

Winner of the Blue Diamond Stakes during her juvenile season, Samaready spent a year sidelined with injury as a three-year-old.

She’s come back in stellar form this season however with back-to-back wins, the most recent of which was the Group 1 Moir Stakes (1200m) at Moonee Valley on a Friday night in September where she defeated the defending champ Buffering by an easy margin.

Rob Heathcote’s Mossman six-year-old Buffering is also back again tonight, the 10-time Group 1 minor placegetter looking to turn the tables on their last start conqueror and finally score that much deserved elite level win.

Drawn in gate 10 he’ll have work to do however, Samaready in seven which she won the Moir from, and remains steady in the markets at $6.50.

The last of the single-figure fancies is then Caspar Fownes’ five-time Group 1 champion Hong Kong sprinter Lucky Nine.

The Dubawi gelding was last seen winning Singapore’s Group 1 KrisFlyer International Sprint (1200m) in May by three lengths.

Despite their imposing form, the suggestion by Fownes they won’t be at peak fitness until the $1 million Group 1 Patinack Farm Classic (1200m) at Flemington on November 9 has seen them ease out in the markets from $8 to $8.50.

Another notable market drifter has been KrisFlyer International runner-up Bel Sprinter ($12 out to $15) who has the rails run from barrier one, Jason Warren’s The Galaxy winner looking to improve on their first-up sixth in the Moir.

The other best in betting are then Chris Waller’s Group 2 Premier Stakes winning mare Arinosa steady at $11 with the outside gate to overcome, and the Gary Portelli-trained Rebel Dane coming off a win in the Group 1 Sir Rupert Clarke Stakes (1400m) who has had some love firming in from $12 to $11.
