A capacity field of 1 two-year-old fillies has been confirmed to line up for the Group 2 Magic Night Stakes (1200m) at Rosehill Gardens this weekend, offering punters several good opportunities to place a winning bet.
One of two legitimate chances of success for trainer Gerald Ryan in the Magic Night Stakes, talented filly Tetsuko is currently featured as tied favourite in betting markets with Veloce Forte at a generous quote of $6, ahead of Bring Me The Maid ($7), Peggy Jean and Lady Sharapova; currently sharing the third line of betting at $7.50 odds.
Will Tetsuko deliver Ryan success in the 2014 Magic Night Stakes, or will one of her classy opponents find the Group 2 line in the clear?
Bring Me The Maid ($7)
Bring Me The Maid has quickly risen to prominence as a two-year-old to watch over only two competitive starts to date, claiming the Listed Sports 1000 (1000m) on debut before finishing an unlucky third behind London Lolly and Orujo in the Listed St Albans Stakes (1200m) most recently. Despite drawing the slightly awkward barrier 10 for the Magic Night Stakes, trainer Peter Moody is confident the talented Sebring filly has the class to overcome classy opposition, particularly with in-form jockey Chad Schofield on board.
Peggy Jean ($7.50)
Yet to finish outside the places in three race starts to date, Peggy Jean debuted with a strong second in the ATC Membership On Sale Maiden (1000m) before comfortably winning the Inglis Classic (1200m) ahead of classy opposition on January 18th, and finally finishing third in the ATC Membership On Sale Handicap (1200m) last time out. Having drawn the ideal barrier 5 for the Magic Night Stakes, Peggy Jean will be partnered by well-trialled jockey Blake Shinn and offers punters sensational value for success at current $7.50 odds.
Clifton Red ($11)
Scoring an impressive victory on debut in the Group 3 Thoroughbred Breeders Stakes (1200m) on March 8th, Clifton Red settled well back in the field in the Group 2 Reisling Stakes (1200m), and paid the price when blocked for a run in the final straight, finishing a disappointing seventh. Claiming the central barrier 8 for this weekend’s Magic Night Stakes, trainer David Hayes is confident of a far better running position and return to the winner’s circle for Clifton Red.
