Following an unlucky fifth-place finish in the Golden Slipper, Manaal atoned in the Group 1 Inglis Sires' last start, with the Michael Freedman-trained filly grabbing Traffic Warden late to land that 1400m feature.

That seven furlong event is the traditional lead-up race, with 25 of the last 29 Champagne winners coming from the Inglis Sires and that includes Militarize (2023 winner), who became the 42nd horse in history to complete the the Sires'-Champagne Stakes double.

At $2.50 with Unibet Australia, Manaal heads the market for the 2024 Champagne Stakes, while Linebacker ($3.20) sits on the second line of betting.

The John O'Shea-trained colt brings a different form line, having bolted in with a Hawkesbury maiden in February before a narrow victory as an odds-on favourite in the Group 3 Baillieu Stakes on March 30.

Although he's still in his first campaign, Linebacker has been aimed towards the Champagne Stakes a long way out and the son of Super Seth should have no trouble running out a strong mile.

After winning this race with Skilled (2010) Helmet (2011) and Guelph (2013), Godolphin have had a lean period in this feature and Broadsiding ($6) is their representative in 2024.

While he has ground to make on both Linebacker and Anode from the Baillieu Stakes, Broadsiding was unsuited in that clash and he did eat up 1600m last Saturday when recording an impressive win in the Listed Fernhill Stakes.

Champagne Stakes Winners

The Group 1 Champagne Stakes dates back to 1861 and had many changing conditions in its early years.

It was run as a six furlong sprint from 1883 up until 1971, but with the introduction of the richer and more prestigious Golden Slipper in the 1950's, the Champagne Stakes changed to a 1600 metre event to follow both the Slipper and then Sires Produce with a natural progression in trip via the "Triple Crown" series.

Early champion winners of the Champagne Stakes include Ajax, Todman and Vain, while Samantha Miss and Pierro are a few of the more modern champions to win this Group 1.

Captivant (2021), She's Extreme (2022) and Militarize (2023) have won the last three editions of the Champagne Stakes.
