Charging home to secure a maiden victory at the highest level at the conclusion of her 2014 spring preparation, Bonaria has been included in 2015 Mannerism Stakes nominations.

Securing eight wins and a further ten minor place finished over her 41 start career so far, Bonaria ran sixth in a minor over 1100m first-up in August before a luckless eighth when blocked for a run in the final straight of the Group 3 Cockram Stakes (1200m).

Responding well when fourth in the Group 2 Let’s Elope Stakes (1400m) on September 13th, the daughter of Redoute’s Choice was disappointing when beating just two runners home in the Group 2 Blazer Stakes (1400m), but closed her campaign in the best way possible when taking out the Group 1 Myer Classic (1600m) on November 1st.

Placing second in the Group 3 Bellmaine Stakes (1200m) first-up this time, Bonaria is a leading chance for success in the 2015 Mannerism Stakes.

Tycoon Tara secured an impressive and undoubtedly career-best victory in the 2015 Bellmaine Stakes, and will be aiming to continue her impressive run of form through the 2015 Mannerism Stakes.

Returning for victory in a Dunkeld minor over 1000m on November 15th, Tycoon Tara ran second in the Bowman Financial Services Maiden (1100m) on November 24th before returning to the winner’s circle in Maurice Blackburn Lawyers Handicap (1300m) a fortnight later.

Politeness ran on from the rear of the field to finish third in the Bellmaine Stakes last time out, and is sure to take invaluable improvement from the run when lining up for the 2015 Mannerism Stakes.

Running fourth in each of the Group 3 Sportingbet Sprinter (1200m) and Blazer Stakes first-up in spring, Politeness placed fifth in the Group 2 Tristarc Stakes (1400m) on October 18th, and while luckless less blocked late and seventh in the Myer Classic, ended her campaign in the best way possible when taking out the Group 3 Summond Stakes (1500m) on November 15th.

A final field and barrier draw for the 2015 Mannerism Stakes is due to be completed and released on Wednesday.
