Michelle Fleming will be back at Muswellbrook on Melbourne Cup day in the hope of replicating the result she achieved at the Upper Hunter track on Sunday.
Manabar took out the Benchmark 66 Handicap at Muswellbrook to give Fleming her first win since February 6.
It came after a second placing for the nine-year-old at Coonabarabran the week before.
Manabar was ridden in a similar fashion on Sunday with the move paying off.
"That was a really good run and he needs to go forward because he can be a little bit cunning," Fleming said.
"He will slide back in the field if you let him. I said to Jake [Pracey-Holmes], go forward with him and keep him going."
He did just that and now Fleming will be out to repeat the dose on Tuesday.
The Kootingal-based trainer will be taking Our Boy Ollie to Muswellbrook to compete in a maiden plate (1000m).
After leading in his first start, the three-year-old faded late on a heavy track at Tamworth when finishing fifth.
Fleming expected improvement to come.
"He left himself a bit exposed, if you like, and they sort of swooped him at the end which he was entitled to as well because it was a big run for him," Fleming said of Our Boy Ollie.
"He's nice and fit as well so I'm hoping he will like Muswellbrook and run accordingly."
This year will be a change for Fleming as she usually is at the Tamworth track on Melbourne Cup day.
Fleming said she'd 'miss all her crew' in Tamworth but was looking forward to experiencing Muswellbrook for the first time on the first Tuesday in November.
"They'll have a great day. They always have a great day at Tamworth. They do a great job there," she said.
As for the big race on the day, Fleming liked the race favourite to take out the Cup but wouldn't mind seeing a different result.
"I like Peter Moody's horse Incentivise and I think I really have to go with Rachel King on Pondus," Fleming said.
"I really would like to see Rach win the Melbourne Cup.
"She's ridden for me before and done well. It'd just be nice to see her go down there and blitz them. That would be really good."
