A stiff and sorry Buffering is being carefully monitored after being battered in a rough Manikato Stakes.

Brisbane’s star sprinter finished seventh in a blanket finish in Friday night’s Manikato won by Lankan Rupee but came off the worse for wear when he did not get to the lead as usual.

His trainer Robert Heathcote said Buffering was sick and sorry and generally sore after the run and was being carefully monitored.

“He got smashed a couple of times. To finish where he did after copping so much was an outstanding effort,” Heathcote said.

“His jockey Damian Browne described it as the gutsiest run of his entire career and he is right.”

Heathcote is still hoping Buffering can run in the Group One Darley Classic at Flemington on Saturday week.

“It remains the plan but we will have to monitor him for the time being,” he said.

Fellow Brisbane trainer Tony Gollan has a different problem with Temple of Boom who finished one place better than Buffering in the Manikato.

Gollan also plans to run Temple Of Boom in the Darley Classic but jockey Tegan Harrison needs a favourable result in her appeals against two careless riding suspensions in Queensland.

“Tegan has developed an affinity with Temple of Boom and the horse goes well for her. We want her on again in the Darley,” Gollan said.

No date has yet been set for Harrison’s appeals.

Like Heathcote, Gollan was proud of his horse’s Manikato effort.

“It was a wonderful run. He was three deep for most of the race and had no cover,” Gollan said.

“To get beaten about half a length against the best sprinters in the land was a sensational.”

“Even though we got beaten it was the most exciting race I have been involved in.”
