21/2/2019 Manuel chasing another Group 1 upset

Last-start CF Orr Stakes (Gr 1, 1400m) winner Manuel (Commands) will try to add a second elite level win to his CV in the Futurity Stakes (Gr 1, 1400m) at Caulfield on Saturday, where he will jump from barrier 7. "They are dismissing him at their own peril," McEvoy said. "He was very strong through that 1400 metres second-up so I haven't done much with him. I've just kept him sweet and happy and in the same spot. He's really bright and well. He hasn't gone backwards, and he might have even got a bit better."
In early betting markets for the Futurity stakes, Manuel is $20. Check out the latest Futurity stakes odds.
