The NE Manion Cup is a distance event for 3yo & upwards gallopers that usually sees a field of predominatly local staying types who tend to run around in similar tpye races that are a step below the better class staying races of the Sydney autumn racing carnival.
Fit, in-form stayers or improving types who get in under the handicapper's guard are the ones to keep an eye out for in this event, and a race like the Gr3 Sky High Stakes provides the ideal lead up race. Julienas (2013) was the most recent galloper to claim the Sky High Stakes & NE Manion Cup double.
Stayer's options after this event include the Gr2 Chairman's Handicap over 2600m or the Gr1 Sydney Cup over 3200m, both races taking place at Randwick. Libran (2016) and The Offer (2014) both managed to snare the Chairman's Handicap after winning this race, while Gallante (3rd in 2016) went on to win the Sydney Cup.
Master Of Arts (2018) ran second in the Gr3 Lord Reims Stakes over 2600m at Morphettville in Adelaide before trekking to Sydney to win this event and recent NE Manion Cup winners include Big Duke (2017) and Libran (2016).
