Reciprocity will get a rare chance to use her impressive gate speed in Saturday night’s Benstud Queen of the Pacific and her trainer Peter Manning hopes it can help score the five-year-old mare’s first Group 1 success.

The $100,000 feature will be the first race the five-year-old scores up on the front row since she won at Tabcorp Park Melton five starts ago.

In that race she had to storm home from the back of the field to score after racing roughly at the start but Manning hoped the mare had more than enough tow – as shown when eventually leading from gate six two starts before – to find the lead.

Manning said Reciprocity, known around the stables as ‘Ginger’, had been “going really well”.

“She’s led quite a few times, she’s quick out,” Manning said. “But she hasn’t had a chance to show it in her last (few) starts."

Reciprocity has enjoyed a great season, winning seven of her 16 starts – and $80,000 in prizemoney – since joining Manning’s Great Western stables in December.

Manning said he was confident Saturday night’s 2760m trip on Saturday wouldn’t faze her after she won a heat and finished third over 2600m in the recent Mildura Pacing Cup series.

“I reckon most of the in the field would never have run over that journey … except for the real fast-class ones like Makes Every Scents and Berisari,” he said.
