Daily Racing Tips – Manikato Stakes Night Special
The Valley - Race 2 5:45pm AEDT
No. 1 West Wind
West Wind is a proven winner and she has gone to another level this campaign.
She never gave her rivals a chance when she won by six lengths at Cranbourne a couple of starts ago and she claimed the biggest win of her career in the Pinker Pinker Classic last start.
The Valley seems the ideal track for her as she makes her own luck right on the speed and will prove tough to run down.
The Valley - Race 3 6:15pm AEDT
No. 5 Sansom
Sansom has an excellent chance to make a winning return to the races at The Valley tonight.
His form during the Winter was outstanding and he has form around a number of quality gallopers like Alfa Oro and Viridine.
He has recorded two wins from his four race starts and he can improve that record.
The Valley - Race 7 8:15pm AEDT
No. 3 Groundswell
Groundswell returned to winning form at Cranbourne last start and a repeat of that effort will make him very tough to beat.
His best form is more than good enough to win this contest, he was placed in the Caulfield Guineas a three-year-old, and he has improved each time that he has been seen at the races this campaign.
Barrier six is ideal and he can make it two wins on the trot.
The Valley - Race 8 8:45pm AEDT
No. 1 Trekking
Trekking is the class horse in the Ladbrokes Manikato Stakes field and it is no surprise that he has been well-backed in early betting.
His first-up run in the Moir Stakes at The Valley was excellent and he was not disgraced against a much stronger field in The Everest.
Barrier seven is ideal and he will have every possible chance to claim another Group 1 win.
