2011 Stan Fox Stakes Form Guide – Manawanui v The Rest

September 22nd, 2011

Across our network of racing websites we try to bring you the very best coverage of fields, form guides and betting information on all the Group races we possibly can.

Never before though have we faced a situation quite like we have this Saturday when the Stan Fox Stakes jumps with just five runners.

It’s a real blow for the Australian Turf Club but the betting will still be interesting.

You may remember two weeks back the Golden Rose jumped with just six runners at group 1 level.

That was different though because five of the six were genuine winning chances and they probably represented the top four three year olds anywhere in the country.

The eventual winner was Manawanui but only he remains for the Stan Fox Stakes.

That leaves a situation where the best horse in the Group 1 faces a tiny field of horses at a level just not up to the grade.

For that reason the 2011 Stan Fox Stakes Form Guide is probably the easiest we’ve even done.

You’ll only get short odds for Manawanui anywhere you go but if you fancy taking the easy money jump on to Luxbet where you’ll score the best odds around.

It may only be a couple of cents better but hey, if you can get more money for your coin why not take it? Visit Luxbet today.

The only reason this horse won’t win the race is if he falls, suffers an injury or there’s third party interference. He has a four race winning streak stretching over two preps and his last he won at group 1 level against the best three year olds we have to offer. It’s not a case of will he win, it’s a case of how much.


As for the rest of them, Cocky Raider, Irish Times, State Of Wealth & Roma Giaconda well you can hardly blame their connections. These horses have a shot at $50,000 for finishing second as well as a Group 2 placing to their name. I simply can’t see how any of these will beat Manawanui but their own fight could be interesting. Cocky raider probably has the most class but his last two results have been off. Irish Times won last start but before that was average at best. State Of Wealth is an impressive up and comer and looks to be one to watch for the future off two victories. Roma Giaconda is another with ability after two runs for a second and a win.

Current Luxbet fixed price odds for Manawanui in the 2011 Stan Fox Stakes are $1.16.
