Defending Champ Leads 2015 Mannerism Stakes Field

Last year’s winner Bonaria is back shooting for successive wins in Saturday’s Mannerism Stakes 2015 at Caulfield Racecourse on Blue Diamond Stakes Day.

Twelve months ago the Pat Hyland-trained daughter of Redoute’s Choice won the $150,000 Group 3 Mannerism Stakes (1400m), registered this year as the Premier Signs Stakes, before going on to win the Group 3 Schweppervescence Trophy over the Flemington mile at her next start.

During the spring the now six-year-old enjoyed a stellar end to her campaign with a win in the Group 1 Myer Classic back over 1600m at Flemington defeating a smart field including Sweet Idea (2nd), Catkins (3rd) and Solicit (4th).

She resumed on February 14 at Caulfield in the Group 3 Bellmaine Stakes (1200m) and was second past the post behind Tycoon Tara.

Now she shoots for her third second-up run at her eighth attempt and is out to become the first back-to-back Mannerism Stakes winner in history.

She jumps from barrier five of nine this year with her Bellmaine Stakes jockey Dwayne Dunn staying on.

The other two mares who finished in the Bellmaine Stakes trifecta along with Bonaria last time out are also accepted to face off in round two this weekend.

The Symon Wilde-trained winner Tycoon Tara has run top two in her past five runs over a lengthy summer – autumn campaign having only stepped up to Group company last time out.

She won that Group 3 by nearly two lengths from barrier eight with Ben Melham aboard on 55kg.

For the Mannerism she is in the outside barrier nine with Melham retaining the ride but goes up to 58kg under the set weights plus penalties conditions.

Bellmaine Stakes third past the post first-up Politeness meanwhile is in barrier seven this weekend with Nicholas Hall riding Robert Smerdon’s Street Sense four-year-old.

She was seventh to Bonaria in the Myer Classic during the Melbourne Cup Carnival before winning the Group 3 Summoned Stakes (1500m) at Sandown in mid-November.

She kicked off her autumn in the Bellmaine Stakes and is looking for her first Caulfield win at attempt number six and her first 1400m victory at her seventh start over the distance.

Other notable Mannerism Stakes hopefuls this year include Lindsay Park’s runner Girl Guide in barrier four for Craig Williams fresh off his second Launceston Cup win on Wednesday aboard Adelaide Cup-bound Genuine Lad, and the Lee & Shannon Hope-trained Choose shooting for her third on the trot after back-to-back Flemington wins over the 1400m in January.
