The Darren Weir-trained Brave Smash has won the Group One Manikato Stakes, overhauling Irish horse Spirit Of Valor in the 1200m-sprint at Moonee Valley.

Ridden by Hugh Bowman on Friday night, the eve of the jockey's major assignment on Winx in the Cox Plate, Brave Smash's Group One win made up for his midfield finish in The Everest at Randwick on a heavy track.

Kementari ran on to finish third while Spirit Of Valor's Aidan O'Brien-trained stablemate, July Cup winner U S Navy Flag, came out of the gates slowly and was never a factor.
