The 2010 Edward Manifold Stakes saw another fantastic performance from emerging star Sistine Angel as she beat out a field of 15 runners for the Group 2, $250,000 title. Punters who backed the filly at $9.00 at Ladbrokes.com.au will be especially satisfied with her superb performance.
Sistine Angel bore down on the leader to take the win by a head.
The Andrew Noblet-trained filly overcame a wide barrier draw to go third to last in the opening metres of the race. It didn’t take long for jockey Craig Williams to run up behind Brazillian Pulse who was third to Shamrocker in a three-wide line that included race leader Ringa Ringa Rosie.
With a furlong to go, Brazilian Pulse pulled ahead of Ringa Ringa Rosie for the race lead. Just when it looked like the Michael Moroney-trained filly would take the win, Sistine Angel bore down on the leader to take the win by a head.
Brazilian Pulse came in second with Ringa Ringa Rosie finishing out the top three. Race favourite Divorces had a disappointing showing as she finished in 11th position. Here’s a look at how the rest of the field shaped up:
