Wide Draw No Barrier To Menari Support

Despite having drawn the outside barrier of the 11 runners in tomorrow’s Group 2 The Run To The Rose (1200m) at Rosehill Gardens, the Corumbene Stud-bred and race favourite Menari has continued to tighten in markets over the past 48 hours, coming in from $2.80 to $2.40. Pariah is solid at $3.20, ahead of Godolphin’s Kementari who has been nibbled at to close up to $4.60.

The Godolphin-trained runner will have a red-hot Kerrin McEvoy in the irons from barrier 7, while Josh Parr is going to have to find a way to slot Menari in with cover somewhere, without leaving him with too much to do in the straight.

A winner of the Listed Rosebud at Rosehill Gardens at his most recent start where he defeated Siege Of Quebes by a length and a quarter, the Gerald Ryan-trained Snitzel colt Menari looks to have an undeniable chance to record back to back black type wins.
