Manuel is climbing up the ladder in the race for public votes on the All Star Mile

Last start G1 winner Manuel is climbing up the ladder in the race for public votes on the All Star Mile with the help of actor John Cleese.

Manuel is named for the character played by Andrew Sachs in the cult TV series Fawlty Towers created by, and starring, Cleese.

With the backing of Cleese on social media, Manuel rose 19 places to No.18 when the public voting went into black-out mode at noon on Friday.

The popular vote for 10 of the 14 spots in the $5 million All Star Mile on March 16 closes on Monday and will be revealed on Thursday with Racing Victoria to announce four wild card entries by March 4.

A number of horses in three states will put their credentials on the line on Saturday.

Twenty-nine horses are set to run over the weekend of which eight are currently in the top 20, three in the top 10.

Balf’s Choice, trained in Adelaide by Ryan Balfour, surged into fourth place by Friday’s blackout and is set to run at Morphettville on Saturday.

Mr Money Bags and Man Of His Word, seventh and ninth respectively, both run at Flemington with good performance sure to consolidate their places in the top 10.
