Tonight leading up to Cox Plate Day on Saturday Moonee Valley Racecourse will host the Spring Carnival’s latest Group 1 – the 2015 Manikato Stakes – the exclusive Races.com.au two-word form guide on the sprint classic found below.
A field of 10 face off in this year’s $1 million Group 1 Manikato Stakes (1200m), which is duo to jump as Moonee Valley Race 7 at 9:45pm (AEST) this evening and that Ladbrokes.com.au is offering Best Tote or SP + 20% markets on!
Four of the horses in the Manikato Stakes field are currently under $10 for the win in the latest markets with the clear favourite being the Team Hawkes-trained Chautauqua.
Coming off a Group 2 winning double this time in, the Encosta De Lago five-year-old has his TJ Smith Stakes winning jockey Tommy Berry aboard for the first time since an All Aged Stakes third to Dissident during the autumn in place of Dwayne Dunn.
Berry will need a clever ride from barrier two tonight at the tight Moonee Valley track, but Chautauqua still looks the one to beat paying $2 to take it out.
The next best in Manikato Stakes betting are the rails-drawn sprint star Terravista ($6), 2013 winner Buffering who has been backed in early from $8 to $7 on the back of his third Moir Stakes win at the track and the returning Stradbroke Handicap – Tattersall’s Tiara double winning mare from the winter Srikandi ($7).
This week we published a comprehensive 2015 Manikato Stakes Form Guide & Betting Preview.
But with so many livewire hopes in the field tonight and plenty of form to sort through we’ve done the hard work for you and summed up the chances of all 10 Manikato Stakes horses in just two words!
