Manfred Stakes Nominations & Weight 2012

January 31st, 2012

The 2012 Manfred Stakes nominations are detailed below with a list of 19 horses seeking the 16 positions on offer in this Saturday’s race at Caulfield.

The Manfred Stakes is run at Listed level over a trip of 1200m with a total prize pool of $100,000.

There’s no doubt about which horse is the major drawcard i the race with Mosheen standing out like a sore thumb.

The filly has a rating of 105 earned through her Group 1 winning sprig program, a full 23 points more than her nearest rival Cash Bound on 82.

She also gets in with just 57kg so she certainly shapes well on paper.

The obvious drawback is that the race is over just 1200m but class counts for a lot so expect her to be prominent in the betting.

Speaking of which throughout this week we’ll be bringing you all our tips and betting updates on the 2012 Manfred Stakes.
