NE Manion Cup 2024

Ladbrokes Tip: The NE Manion Cup serves as a nice lead-up into the Group 1 Sydney Cup each autumn.

The Group 3 NE Manion Cup* is a 2400m staying race run and won at Rosehill Gardens in March on Golden Slipper Stakes Day during the Sydney Autumn Racing Carnival.

*Note: In 2022 the race ran as the Group 3 Queen’s Cup.

The mile and a half showdown offers $250,000 and is open to all horses aged three-years-old and above.

A quality handicap event, the NE Manion Cup was first held in 1972 and is named in honour of former Sydney Turf Club director N.E. Manion.

The race makes a nice lead-up into other distance races at a higher level over the carnival including the Group 1 Tancred Stakes (2400m) the following weekend and even the Group 1 Sydney Cup (3200m) over the two miles at Randwick during ‘The Championships’ in April.

The latest edition of the NE Manion Cup ran on Saturday March 23, 2024 as part of Rosehill’s Golden Slipper Day card in Sydney and was won in style by William Haggas’ Sydney Cup-bound international raider Post Impressionist ($3.90F).

NE Manion Cup Tips

NE Manion Cup tips favour in-form autumn gallopers with previous winning form at the 2400m or further. 

Horses under double-figures in betting make a good NE Manion Cup tip as do any returning runners that finished in the money in the previous season’s edition of the race. 

Older runners make the best bet in NE Manion Cup tipping as since Precedence (2010) the only four-year-old to beat the older horses was European raider Favourite Moon (2021). 

Favourite Moon was the second international in as many years to win the race following the 2020 success of the fellow William Haggas-trained Young Rascal. 

Haggas returned to take out the race for the third time in five years with Post Impressionist beating his Aussie rivals down under in 2024.

  • To Win: #11 Floating ($8 at time of publish) – BET NOW

Intriguing race with an international raider in the mix, but the price on the super-consistent Floating from the Matthew Smith stables looks attractive. This Puissance De Lune grey is a two-time runner-up from three Rosehill runs and has won two of his past three starts. Benchmark 88 at Randwick last time out with more weight. Up in grade and distance, but can surprise.
