Prompt Response will return from a spell on Saturday and interestingly figures as outright $3 favourite in 2016 Magic Night Stakes betting markets with Ladbrokes.com.au.

Having appeared on course competitively only once so far, Prompt Response produced a strong late turn of foot to run a close second to Concealer in the Group 3 Emirates Airline Plate (1000m) at Flemington on Melbourne Cup Day.

Beating a strong field to the line by more than three lengths in a talent-rich Randwick barrier trial on February 10th, the Beneteau filly will leave from the rails draw with Kerrin McEvoy aboard.

Calliope was unlucky to be scratched from the Group 2 Reisling Stakes at the barriers last weekend but is offered a good opportunity to atone on Saturday and is worth consideration for a bet at current $3.50 Magic Night Stakes odds.

Debuting to racing for a convincing win in the Listed Gimcrack Stakes (1000m) on October 3rd, the daughter of Exceed And Excel resumed this time for a credible fifth in the Group 2 Blue Diamond Prelude F (1100m) on February 13th.

James McDonald will resume the ride on Calliope who has drawn ideally in barrier 2 for her run in the Magic Night Stakes.

Interestingly figuring as the only other runner currently available at 2016 Magic Night Stakes odds of less-than $10, Omei Sword arguably offers punters the best value for money at a $7 quote for success or $2.50 to run in the first three.

Trialling well in the lead-up to her competitive debut, Omei Sword delivered a number notable competitors a comfortable defeat in the Peter Svendsen Maiden Handicap (1100m) on February 24th.

Twist Tops ($13) occupies the fourth line of Magic Night Stakes betting and is the first runner available at double figure odds.
