BONNY mare House Of Stars can realise a dream for Swan Hill trainer Jane Duncan in today’s $20,000 Ladbrokes Manangatang Cup (2000m).

Duncan has been a regular participant at the popular annual meeting since first obtaining her training licence almost  a decade ago.

“I’ve had my licence for nine or 10 years and been to Manang every year,” Duncan said.
