2017 NE Manion Cup Field & Odds: Betting Wide Open

It is a wide open NE Manion Cup 2017 betting market for the opening race at Rosehill Gardens this Golden Slipper Stakes Day with more than half-the field in the Sydney Cup lead-up under $5 for the win.

Set to kick off the Sydney racing on Saturday as Rosehill Race 1 at 12:15pm (AEDT), this season’s $150,000 Group 3 NE Manion Cup (2400m) has drawn a diminutive field of just the seven stayers.

Most are Randwick bound on April 8 during ‘The Championships’, hoping to make the field for the $2 million Group 1 Sydney Cup (3200m).

Last autumn the Chris Waller-trained import Libran won the NE Manion Cup – Chairman’s Handicap double before a second to Gallante in the Sydney Cup over the two miles.

Currently the bookies are having a very hard time separating the best in NE Manion Cup betting with the first four horses in the line-up at $4.80 or shorter.

Narrow early favourite in the NE Manion odds at $3.20 is the Robert Hickmott-trained Our Century getting in on the 54kg minimum with Ben Melham to ride from barrier two.

The European import has had just nine career starts including three wins, the six-year-old son of Montjeu racing in Australia since September last year.

He is as yet unraced in Group company down under and comes off a 2000m win over Extra Zero from March 5 in the Wangaratta Cup.

Second elect is the ultra-consistent Darren Weir-trained Big Duke ($3.50) who has run top four in his ten latest starts.

The Raven’s Pass five-year-0old has won three of his past four including the Group 3 Launceston Cup (2400m) over the mile and a half in late February carrying 55.5kg and he drops one and a half-kilos for this weekend.

Top weight in the NE Manion Cup with 58kg is the John O’Shea-trained Allergic who English hoop William Buick rides again on the seven day turnaround.

Last Saturday the Street Boss gelding finished third behind runaway winner Tavago in the Group 3 Sky High Stakes (2000m).

He rises notably in weight after carrying 55.5kg and is on the quick back-up, but he will appreciate getting out over the extra distance with his last 2400m run producing the close third in the Group 1 The Metropolitan in the spring.

The rails-drawn Kinema ($4.80) is at the same price as Allergic for the weekend’s race and represents last year’s winning trainer Waller.

Ryan Moore is booked for the barrier one ride aboard Kinema third-up, the Galileo six-year-old boasting winning form up to 2800m and out to improve on a last start fifth in the Listed Randwick City Stakes (2000m).
