Edward Manifold Stakes 2020

Saturday October 3, 2020

Ladbrokes Tip: Fillies might back-up from the Edward Manifold into the Thousand Guineas the next weekend

The Edward Manifold Stakes is a Group 2 race for three-year-old fillies contested at Flemington Racecourse on Turnbull Stakes Day in early October. One of the earlier Group 1 race meetings of the Melbourne Spring Racing Carnival, the card is headlined by the $500,000 Group 1 Turnbull Stakes (2000m) for Caulfield Cup types.

The Edward Manifold is one of the key support races at the meeting and is one of three Group 2 events along with the Gilgai Stakes (1200m) and Blazer Stakes (1400m). Offering $300,000 in total prize money the mile clash is run at set weights and fillies often back-up the following Saturday in the Group 1 Thousand Guineas (1600m) at Caulfield Racecourse. The last filly to complete the Edward Manifold / Thousand Guineas double was Amphitrite (2018).

The event also serves as a key lead-up into the Group 1 VRC Oaks (2500m) held on the first Thursday of November. In 2019 the Edward Manifold third placed Miami Bound went on to win the VRC Oaks later that spring.

The latest edition of the Edward Manifold Stakes ran on Saturday October 3, 2020 and was won by the favourite Thermosphere.

Edward Manifold Stakes Betting

The Edward Manifold Stakes odds are led by in-form fillies, often from local Melbourne stables with previous experience the Melbourne way of racing and form up to at least 1400m.

A past win over the mile (1600m) and Group race experience in earlier campaigns also sees fillies sit higher up the Edward Manifold Stakes betting markets each spring.

A number of upsets have occurred in recent years including Se Sauver ($16 in 2013), Bring Me Roses ($17 in 2017) and the massive boilover by Moonlight Maid ($41 in 2019), so looking further down the Edward Manifold Stakes betting markets can prove profitable.

Amphitrite ($3.20 in 2018) followed by Thermosphere ($3.60 in 2020) meanwhile are the latest favourites in Edward Manifold Stakes betting to salute.

Edward Manifold Stakes Field

The Edward Manifold Stakes field attracts a line-up of the season’s most promising fillies displaying staying potential. Many of the youngsters in the race are early into their Spring Carnival campaigns and come off a non-Black Type lead-up, while others could have had a previous run in the Group 2 Thousand Guineas Prelude (1400m) in late September.

Fillies often use the race as a lead-up to the following weekend’s Thousand Guineas and in 2015 the Edward Manifold Stakes winner Badawiya ran third in the Group 1 next start, while the 2011 winner Mosheen ran second to Atlantic Jewel in that year’s Thousand Guineas before going on to win the VRC Oaks. In 2018 Amphitrite completed the Edward Manifold Stakes / Thousand Guineas double.

Runners may also be progressing towards a November run in Flemington’s Group 1 VRC Oaks (2500m) during the Melbourne Cup Carnival. In 2013 the Edward Manifold Stakes third placegetter Solicit ran second in the Ethereal Stakes, third in the Wakeful Stakes and third in that season’s VRC Oaks.

In 2017 Bring Me Roses won the Edward Manifold and later ran second in the VRC Oaks quinella.

The 2019 VRC Oaks results featured two of the fillies from the Edward Manifold Stakes trifecta. Oaks winner Miami Bound improved on her third, while the upset Edward Manifold winner ran a brave third in the Group 1.

The Edward Manifold Stakes nominations close the Monday before the race runs on the Sunday with the final field and barrier draw out on the Wednesday of that week.
