2013 Manikato Stakes Form & Betting Guide

This Friday night under the lights at Moonee Valley Racecourse the first of the weekend’s two Group 1 features will take place with the Manikato Stakes 2013 taking centre stage.

There are 12 sprinters in the mix for this year’s $1 million Group 1 Sportingbet Manikato Stakes (1200m) which is set to bring the evening’s proceedings to a close as Moonee Valley Race 8 at 10:00pm (AEST).

Current favourite in Manikato Stakes betting at a short $2.70 is former star juvenile Samaready, Mick Price’s mare after her third win from as many starts this time in.

The now four-year-old daughter of More Than Ready resumed off a 12 month injury enforced break at Caulfield in August to post her fifth career win at start number seven.

She added more gold to the trophy cabinet and became a dual Group 1 winner, Samaready having won the 2013 Blue Diamond Stakes as a two-year-old, last start with a blistering four length victory in the Group 1 Moir Stakes (1200m).

In gate seven again with Craig Newitt continuing his association, she looks the one to beat in the Manikato.

Her main dangers are then perceived to be Rob Heathcote’s Moir Stakes runner-up Buffering ($6.50) who lines up in their 18th Group 1 race, Hong Kong sprint star Lucky Nine ($7) in their Australian race debut, last start Group 1 Sir Rupert Clarke Stakes winner Rebel Dane ($11) dropping back in distance and the Chris Waller-trained Arinosa ($11) who won the Group 2 Premiere takes (1200m) narrowly first-up in Sydney.

This is what the Manikato Stakes betting markets have to say, but what about the form guide and betting history?
