Menari Heads Skyline Entries

Tuesday, 21st February 2017

Exciting colt Menari is among the 17 juvenile colts and geldings nominated for Saturday's $200,000 Gr2 Skyline Stakes (1200m) at Royal Randwick. The spotlight will be on Menari (Snitzel- Isurava, by General Nediym) who is well in contention for next month's Golden Slipper. The Gerald Ryan-trained colt is on the third line of betting for the $3.5 million 2YO showpiece to be run at Rosehill Gardens on 18 March. The flashy 2YO with a conspicuous white blaze has looked potentially outstanding in his only two starts to date. He was never out of second gear when posting a facile win on debut at Randwick in early January, before finishing a luckless second to Pariah in the Gr3 Canonbury Stakes, when he should have won by panels. Pariah, who subsequently gave that form a boost when running a slashing second in the Gr3 Blue Diamond Prelude, is second favourite for this Saturday's Gr1 Blue Diamond Stakes.
