Manighar Begins Melb Cup Bid With 3rd In UK Gr2
Last year's Gr1 Caulfield Cup & Gr1 Melbourne Cup runner Manighar (trained by Luca Cumani) returned to racing with a 3rd placing (beaten a half-length & another half-length) in the UK Gr2 Yorkshire Cup (14 furlongs) at York. The Australian-owned & French-bred 5YO entire is being set for another tilt at the Australian Spring Cups. The race was won by favoured front-running UK-bred & John Gosden-trained 6YO entire Dncan (Dalakhani-Dolores, by Danehill) ahead of veteran Irish-bred 9YO gelding Blue Bajan (Montjeu-Gentle Thoughts, by Darshaan).
