2016 Manikato Stakes odds and preview – Chautauqua short favourite

racing-protectionistThe 2016 Manikato Stakes will be held at Moonee Valley on Friday night 21st October 2016 and a classy field has assembled for the Group 1 feature sprint.

Punters are showing great faith that brilliant sprinter Chautauqua will redeem himself and make it back-to-back Manikato Stakes wins.

Online bookmaker sportsbet.com.au reports that Chautauqua, the $2.50 favourite, has been singled out in Manikato Stakes betting.

The Hawkes-trained grey flash holds 60% of the money on the $1,000,000 race, including a $10,000 wager by one punter.

There is nothing between Buffering $10.00, The Quarterback $15.00 and Capitalist $6.00 in the battle for the second most popular.

However, Chautauqua holds eight times more money than that group.

“Chautauqua was a beaten short-priced favourite in the Moir Stakes, but punters obviously think he can turn it around in the Manikato,” sportsbet.com.au’s Christian Jantzen.

“He’s a star sprinter and out to 1200m should give him time to unleash the powerful finish he is capable of.”

The 2016 Manikato Stakes will run as Race 7 on the card at Moonee Valley and is scheduled to jump at 9.30pm in the evening.
