Sunline Favourite In Manikato Stakes

Champion Kiwi mare Sunline is overwhelming favourite at the TAB to take out the Manikato Stakes across the Tasman this weekend.

Sunline returns to racing in the 1200m sprint at Moonee Valley, Melbourne, on Saturday evening. The race is due to jump at 6.20pm NZT.

TAB racing bookie Justin Swift said Sunline was favourite at $1.85 in the TAB’s fixed odds book.

“She ran the race fresh up last year on her way to winning the Cox Plate. Her chief danger is top Aussie galloper Falvelon ($4.50). That horse won the Hong Kong Sprint last year on the same day that Sunline won the Hong Kong Mile,” he said.

Swift said Melbourne is expecting rain in the lead up to the race, which would further enhance Sunline’s prospects. “She is unbeaten on a soft track, unbeaten fresh up, unbeaten at the distance and unbeaten at Moonee Valley.”

Howard Davis Article: A Musical Axis - Brahms, Wagner, Sibelius

Brahms' warm and exquisitely subtle Symphony No. 3 in F major, Wagner's irrepressibly sentimental symphonic poem Siegfried Idyll, and Sibelius' chilling and immensely challenging Violin Concerto in D minor exemplify distinct stages of development in a tangled and convoluted series of skirmishes that came to define subsequent disputes about the nature of post-Romantic orchestral writing well into the following century.
