Which Horse Will Win The Mannerism Stakes
The best way to pick who will win the Mannerism Stakes is to take into account the form, assess the barriers, consider the weight the horse will carry, among other factors.
Additional factors to take into considerations are as follows:
- Penalty Rates – The penalties usually tend to favour the strongest horses, though there can be exceptions. If your mare can bare the weight, then back her, but be on the lookout for a horse that’s getting it easy at the same time.
- Back To Back – Because this race is for four year olds and over, mares that win this race two years in a row are not uncommon. Don’t be afraid to consider last year’s winner, if they’ve made it into the field.
