|Race Type:||Mares - Set Weights + Penalty|
|2018 Winner:||Silent Sedition|
The Mannerism Stakes is a more than handy females only race that usually attracts a fairly strong field of mares for this time of year. The set weight & penalty conditions favor the better performed mares and if there are no standout females, then finding a winner can often be difficult, as is usually the case with these types of mares races.
The Gr3 Geoffrey Bellmaine Stakes is a typical lead up to this race and Tycoon Tara (2015) was the last mare to claim the Bellmaine Stakes & Mannerism Stakes double. Both Azkadellia (2016) and Silent Sedition (2017) ran second in the Bellmaine Stakes prior to winning this event.
Mares contesting this race may continue on to a race like the Gr3 Frances Tressady Stakes at Flemington, which is a race for mares only on Gr1 Australian Guineas day. They might also consider tackling the Gr3 Matron Stakes for mares on Gr1 Australian Cup day on Super Saturday of racing at Flemington. Bonaria (2014) took out the Matron Stakes for the second year in a row after winning this race beforehand.
Silent Sedition (2017-2018) ran fifth in the Gr3 Geoffrey Bellmaine Stakes over 1200m at Caulfield before her stylish victory in this event and recent Mannerism Stakes winners include Azkadellia (2016) and Tycoon Tara (2015).
