Moloney and Lord Of The Sky Reunite in 2015 Chester Manifold Stakes

Apprentice jockey Patrick Moloney has scored the ride on Lord Of The Sky in the Listed Chester Manifold Stakes (1400m) this Saturday at Flemington Racecourse.

The hoop last partnered the four-year-old horse in a Benchmark 78 over 1000 metres last January, delivering a knock-out six and a half length victory.

Lord Of The Sky is a $7 hopeful in the Chester Manifold Stakes betting at, due to jump from barrier six.

He won the Group 3 Monash Stakes (1100m) by four and a half lengths in July last year and has finished runner-up in two of his three starts this preparation. He finished just outside the placings in the Listed Doveton Stakes (1000m) first up on December 6 before placing second in both the Listed Christmas Stakes (1200m) and Group 3 Standish Handicap (1200m). In both races Lord Of The Sky looked a big chance but was either run down or simply didn’t finish off.

Perhaps the return of Moloney in the saddle will energise the Robbie Laing-trained sprinter back into the winner’s circle.

“Obviously getting back on him in a Listed race is a big thrill for an apprentice like myself,” Moloney told Sky Racing.

“I’ve only had the one ride on him and he won by a big margin that day.

“I’m really excited and looking forward to it. He’s drawn a nice alley, he’s been really competitive at that level and I think this weather will help him with a bit of give in the track.

“I think he’ll make his presence felt for a long way. It’s just whether he’ll run the 1400 out strongly.”

The 2015 Chester Manifold Stakes is the feature race running at Flemington Racecourse this Saturday.

Gerald Ryan’s Red Excitement is the $4.40 favourite, having won five of his eight starts over 1400 metres. The gelding will jump from barrier 12 with Brenton Avdulla to ride.
