Prince Of Brooklyn Set for Manfred Stakes 2016 Return

Mick Price saddles up two gallopers in the 2016 Manfred Stakes this weekend at Caulfield Racecourse including the returning Prince Of Brooklyn who has matured nicely over a break.

There are 13 three-year-olds in the mix for the $150,000 Group 3 Manfred Stakes (1200m) on Saturday including the Price-trained stablemates Prince Of Brooklyn and Ready For Victory both drawn nicely in barriers one and four respectively.

Champion hoop Damien Oliver has the ride on Magnus colt Prince Of Brooklyn who jumps from the rails for his first-up run of the Melbourne Autumn Racing Carnival.

The galloper enjoyed a top start to his career last winter winning back-to-back races including the Group 3 National Stakes (1200m) on debut in Adelaide.

He had a flat spring campaign however with a first-up sixth in the Group 3 McNeil Stakes (1200m) followed by his dead last when 16th to Bon Aurum in the Listed Exford Plate (1400m) at Flemington on September 12.

Price believes a testing two-year-old campaign saw Prince Of Brooklyn tiered by the time the Exford Plate rolled around and is willing to forgive the now freshened-up youngster for the run.

“He’s still a colt so we have to still be a bit careful with him. He was a bit inconsistent last time in but that might have been through a lack of maturity,” Price said according to Racenet.

“But he also might have been feeling the effects of a busy late two-year-old period.”

Working well and maturing over his break, the horse looks a genuine hope at $13 through in Manfred Stakes betting for his first-up run and continue that good form throughout his campaign.

“He went to Adelaide and then Swan Hill and he only had a short break but he had a good break before he came back into the stable this time,” Price said.

Price ran Prince Of Brooklyn in a Caulfield jump out late last month where the horse ran a fast finishing second to the Henry Dwyer-trained Tokyo Tycoon, a $41 outsider for Saturday’s Manfred Stakes, and was impressed with the run.

Prince Of Brooklyn is nominated for Flemington’s $750,000 Group 1 Australian Guineas (1600m) at Flemington on March 5, but is currently a $51 outsider in pre-field betting for the classic.

The other Price-trained Manfred Stakes hope this weekend is Ready For Victory, a Glen Boss mount who is also first-up.

A nicely-bred More Than Ready colt, Ready For Victory has won just one of his eight career starts to date but boasts multiple placings in top company.

He is best known for his good third behind Press Statement in the Group 1 Caulfield Guineas (1600m) on October 10 last year, after which he failed to fire when back to 1200m crossing ninth to Japonisme in the Group 1 Coolmore Stud Stakes (1200m).

Ready For Victory pays $7.50 as one of four single figure hopes in Manfred Stakes betting and is at $26 in the futures Australian Guineas odds.

“I’m happy with both of them,” Price said. “Their work here (on Tuesday) was very good.”

To back Price’s runners this weekend and in the 2016 Australian Guineas at the right price, head to now where first time depositing players are rewarded with up to $500 in bonus bets!
