Manolo Blahniq holds the call when it comes to the feature at Flemington this Saturday, the Chester Manifold Stakes (1400m).
The Tony Noonan trained gelding has been excellent in both runs back from a spell, the latest run coming in the Christmas Stakes at Caulfield on Boxing Day when second to Native Soldier. Up to 1400m third up looks ideal and punters agree, with the gelding a hard $4 favourite in early betting.
He holds the call over the in form Mr Money Bags, who is a $5.50 chance. The runner that has been well supported is Takedown, who had no luck first up at Morphettville. HE’s a $10 chance, firming in from $13.
