Lady Of Harrods to skip Manifold Stakes

Flemington trainer Russell Cameron is wary of pushing his luck with his filly Lady Of Harrods.

Worried this Saturday's Group Two Edward Manifold Stakes might stretch the three-year-old, he has decided not to run her at Flemington.

Cameron is concerned that Lady Of Harrods might be flattened for her main target - the Group One Thousand Guineas (1600m) at Caulfield on October 17.

"We're pretty happy the way she is at the moment so we're just going to take the punt and go straight into the Guineas," Cameron said.

"She's done extremely well and we're really happy with her," Cameron said.

"I just fear I might go one (race) too far.

"She's very fit and well now and I feel she will run it out the way we've been training her."

Lady Of Harrods defeated the previously unbeaten Commanding Jewel in her Thousand Guineas Prelude (1400m) win at Caulfield on September 22.

Cameron will still have a presence at Flemington because he has nominated the four-year-old mare Ametsis for two races - the Listed Headquarters Tavern Stakes (1410m) and the Group Two Blazer Stakes (1410m).

He said Ametsis would run "wherever we can get in".

"She's not a very highly-rated filly. She had a good campaign in Brisbane without having much luck," he said.

"We feel she's going pretty well at the moment, we've just got to get into whatever race we can," Cameron said.
