  • 1st: #4 Zardozi
  • 2nd: #7 Aprilia
  • 3rd: #12 Amazonia Lass



The Edward Manifold Stakes is a Group 2 event for three-year-old fillies named after a committeeman of the Victorian Racing Club (VRC). Held on the same day as the Group 1 Turnbull Stakes (2000m), the set-weights race is a 1600m mile race run at Flemington Racecourse in early October as part of the Melbourne Spring Racing Carnival.

Regarded as an ideal lead up race to the Group 1 Thousand Guineas (1600m) held later in the spring, many of the race’s winners will also go on to the Group 1  VRC Oaks (2500m) at Flemington on the Thursday after the Melbourne Cup in November, a double achieved by Mosheen in 2011. Amphitrite (2018) was the last filly to complete the Edward Manifold Stakes / Thousand Guineas double.

The following year, the 2019 Edward Manifold Stakes winner Moonlight Maid went on to run third in the VRC Oaks results where Miami Bound improved on her Edward Manifold Stakes third to salute in the Group 1.

The 2021 Edward Manifold Stakes form was franked with the winner Elusive Express backing-up to run second in that year’s Thousand Guineas results before a VRC Oaks fourth. Yearning meanwhile improved on her Edward Manifold Stakes second to win the Thousand Guineas next start.

The form was further franked by the 2021 Edward Manifold third-placed Glint Of Hope who returned in the autumn of 2022 to win Adelaide’s Group 1 Australasian Oaks (2000m).

The 2022 Edward Manifold Stakes winner She’s Licketysplit ran third next-up in that year’s Thousand Guineas results.

This season the Edward Manifold Stakes 2023 ran on Saturday October 7, 2023 at Flemington Racecourse and was won in dominant fashion by the James Cummings-trained Zardozi ($10).

Stay tuned for our insider Edward Manifold Stakes 2023 Tips on the three-year-old fillies’ showdown on Turnbull Stakes Day.

  • To Win: #1 De Sonic Boom ($7 at time of publish) – BET NOW

Tough edition of the Edward Manifold for punters, but going for the filly donning the No. 1 with this well-tried Anthony & Sam Freedman-trained daughter Spirit Of Boom looking to break through with a Group 2 win here. She was a Blue Diamond Preview winner on debut, but got found out in the Group 1 two runs later finishing 15th. One run in the winter to keep her ticking over before a return that has her performing better again this prep. Two solid performances behind Charm Stone before a last start Listed second over 1400m at Caulfield carrying 58.5kg. Up to a mile now fourth-up and fit with less weight. Think she’ll relish the 1600m and surprise a few with a good run here.

Edward Manifold Stakes History

The Edward Manifold Stakes was first contested back in 1932 and gained its current Group 2 status in 1979. Plenty of star fillies have won the race over the years including Tranquil Star (1940), Light Fingers (1964), Storm Queen (1966), Emancipation (19820 and more recently Alinghi (2004).

Mosheen won the 2011 Edward Manifold Stakes and went on to take out that year’s Group 1 VRC Oaks (2500m) during the Melbourne Cup Carnival. More recently in 2017 Bring Me Roses before a VRC Oaks second that year, and a third in the Australian Guineas the following autumn. In 2018 Amphitrite won the Edward Manifold / Thousand Guineas double.
