One of eight black type races on the Caulfield card for the weekend, this year’s $150,000 Group 3 Mannerism Stakes (1400m) drew 14 nominations on Monday.

Heading the entries is Group 1 winning Redoute’s Choice six-year-old Bonaria who raced for the first time since her Melbourne Cup Carnival victory on February 14.

She resumed at Caulfield in the Group 3 Geoffrey Bellmaine Stakes (1200m) and finished runner-up behind Tycoon Tara.

For her second-up assignment this weekend she’s nominated for both the Mannerism Stakes as well as the $400,000 Group 1 Futurity Stakes (1400m), entries for the Group 1 now up to 12.

Also nominated for both the Mannerism and the Futurity Stakes on Saturday is the Nigel Blackiston-trained Suavito.

The four-year-old Thorn Park mare won back-to-back races at the end of the spring including the Group 2 Momentum Stakes (2000m) at Flemington on Emirates Stakes Day.

She’s got a great Caulfield record (5-2-1-2), and is yet to finish out of the money over the 1400m at Caulfield with two wins, a second and a third from her four runs at the track and distance.

After the top two the next highest-rated Mannerism Stakes nominee this year is the Robert Smerdon-trained Politeness.

The four-year-old daughter of Street Sense ran seventh to Bonaria in the Myer Classic on Derby Day before winning the Group 3 Summoned Stakes (1500m) at Sandown-Hillside in mid-November.

She returned in the Bellmaine Stakes too and ran a nice third under two lengths off the winner Tycoon Tara who is another Mannerism Stakes entry.

Prepared at Warrnambool by Symon Wilde, Written Tycoon four-year-old Tycoon Tara is after her fifth win at start number 10.

She’s won three of her past five starts, and finished second in the other two most recent runs, with the Bellmaine Stakes her first Group assignment.

Another Group winner in the mix is the David Hayes & Tom Dabernig-trained Girl Guide who won the Group 3 How Now Stakes (1200m) at Caulfield last September.

She ran two more Group race seconds at the track in October before her Myer Classic sixth and then resumed with a seventh in the Bellmaine, with room for improvement second-up.

Other notable Mannerism Stakes nominations include Bellmaine Stakes fifth placed Precious Gem, Choose coming off back-to-back 1400m wins at Flemington in January and Nadeem Lass who ran third in the Group 3 Vamos Stakes in Tasmania on February 18 when beaten under half a length at Launceston.
