Tried And Tired Gets Pet Distance in Chester Manifold Stakes 2015

Co-trainer Troy Corstens is confident Tried And Tired can score back-to-back stakes races in Saturday’s 2015 Chester Manifold Stakes when back up to 1400m at Flemington.

The Niello gelding is one of 17 hopefuls nominated for this year’s $120,000 Listed Chester Manifold Stakes (1400m) and Corstens has confirmed jockey Damien Oliver for the ride.

Oliver rode the five-year-old middle-distance sprinter to a close fifth behind Mighty Like second-up over the 1400m at Flemington on December 13 but was suspended for the horse’s last start.

On Boxing Day Tried And Tired was ridden by Perth-based jockey Chris Parnahm, son of prolific WA trainer Neville Parham, to win the Listed Christmas Stakes (1200m) by one and three-quarter lengths.

The horse was drawn in the outside barrier 10 draw in the December 26 feature but charged over from the wide gate to battle for the lead.

Eventually he settled off the frontrunner and was right up there challenging with 500m to go before surging away in an excellent late effort to score an easy victory over Robbie Laing’s Group 3 Sir John Monash Stakes winner Lord Of The Sky.

Four-year-old Danerich stallion Lord Of The Sky backed up to run a brave second to the Danny O’Brien-trained Decircles in the Group 3 Standish Handicap (1200m) at Flemington on New Year’s Day, both horses also nominated for the Chester Manifold.

While Parnham did a good job in the Christmas Stakes to score his first feature race win in Victoria, Corstens has opted to put premiership leader Oliver back aboard Tried And Tired this weekend.

“The only reason Damien didn’t ride him last start was because he was suspended,” Corstens, who trains in partnership with his father Leon Corstens, told AAP.

“Nothing against Chris, it would have been nice to stick with Chris, but Damien had done nothing wrong so he gets back on.”

The horse may have won over 1200m last time out, but Corstens believes his pet distance is the 1400m he sees on Saturday that he boasts three wins and a second over from six starts.

“He has done exceptionally and we’re looking forward to seeing him back out over the 1400 on Saturday,” he said.

“If it’s a similar field to what he’s been racing against he’s going to be terribly hard to beat.”

Looking further ahead, Corstens said they would be looking to step Tried and Tiered up further in class over the autumn carnival should he win again this weekend.

“Obviously you can’t get carried away because we’re in the summer period, but if he can carry this form into the autumn then we’re going to need to reassess where he’s at,” he said.

Other notable Chester Manifold Stakes nominees include Standish Handicap third placed Reparations, the 2014 winner Anlon for Wangoom’s Darren Weir and the Sydney-based Red Excitement for Gerald Ryan.

Ryan is looking forward to the race with his Excites gelding who returned off a 10 month spell to win first-up at Rosehill over the 1400m on December 20.

There Red Excitements carried 61kg to victory and Ryan said he has been working very well since boosting his confidence for the weekend.

The 2015 Chester Manifold Stakes field and barrier draw will be released on Wednesday so stay tuned.
