Al’s Magic Miss Continues on Golden Rose 2011 Path

The David Payne-trained Al’s Magic Miss will continue her run towards the lucrative 2011 Golden Rose this weekend when the smart Magic Albert filly lines up in the $100,000 Listed The Rosebud (1200m) at her home track at Randwick.

Three-year-old Al’s Magic Miss emerged as a genuine contender for the opening Group 1 race of the season and the richest event of the Sydney Spring Racing Carnival, the $1 million Golden Rose (1400m) at Rosehill Gardens on September 10, when she resumed from a 13 week spell to win the Rosebud Fillies Preview (1100m) first-up at Warwick Farm on July 23.

It was an impressive win on a bog track, Al’s Magic Miss having firmed into a 5-1 chance before the start, and one that she will only have improved from according to Payne.

“She wasn’t really wound up that day,” Payne said.

“Her class got her through the race.

“She has trimmed up again and I think she will improve.”

The Rosebud Fillies Preview win was the second of her career, Al’s Magic Miss having won on debut back in February before failing to finish in the money at her next four starts all at stakes level.

She was, however, around the mark having finished no worse than five lengths away from the winners including her fourth to the Gai Waterhouse-trained Shared Reflections in the Group 3 Sweet Embrace Stakes (1200m) in March.

On Saturday she will step up again and attempt to carry her Rosebud Preview winning form through to open company, and if there is rain around in Sydney punters can expect another betting plunge on Al’s Magic Miss before Randwick Race 5 jumps.

“She handles the wet conditions but I think she is just as good on top of the ground so the track won’t be a worry for her at Randwick,” Payne said.

Due to jump from barrier five of nine, Al’s Magic Miss will be ridden by champion hoop Corey Brown for The Rosebud.

Brown has been aboard the filly for two runs, her win on debut and then her last-start victory and he holds a high opinion of her.

“I really like this horse,” Brown said of Al’s Magic Miss.

“I reckon she is a chance.”

Al’s Magic Miss’s stablemate, the fellow Payne-trained Queenian is the easing $3.70 The Rosebud betting favourite at Luxbet, in what is a very open field.

Dubleo colt Queenian is well-tried with nine runs, but only broke their maiden status last start when winning a 1400 metre 2YO handicap at Rosehill on July 2 by a barnstorming five and a half lengths.

Despite their favouritism for Saturday and their promise, Payne is hesitant to name the Golden Rose 2011 as an aim for Queenian.

“I will have to have a chat to his owner and see what he thinks but I wouldn’t be surprised is this is his last run,” Payne said.

“He has held his form but I don’t think he is a Golden Rose horse.”

Of the nine remaining hopefuls Saturday’s The Rosebud, #7 Alcancia an early scratching, there are five at single-figure odds.

Behind Queenian are Al’s Magic Miss and Flying Spur filly Chivvy on $5, Lionel Cohen’s Encosta De Lago gelding Aeronautical at $5.50 and the Peter Snowden-trained Bello paying $6 to win their third race on the trot.
