One of six promising youngsters to debut at Wyong in Thursday’s 2011 Magic Millions 2YO Classic, the John O’Shea-trained Hoss Amor is looking for a successful maiden run to earn a shot at the $2 million Gold Coast equivalent next month.
Due to run as Wyong Race 4 at 3:10pm (NSW time), the $200,000 Magic Millions Wyong 2YO Classic (1100m) field currently features nine hopefuls after the Liam Birchely-trained Shamrock Slipper was an early scratching.
Of the remaining runners only three of had previous race experience, making for a relatively wide open betting affair for the punters at Luxbet.
Currently Wyong Magic Millions Classic odds are led by Paul Perry’s Breeders Plate runner-up Hidden Warrior ($3.80 Luxbet) and the Tony McEvoy-trained Little Critter ($4 Luxbet) who has won one of their two starts to date.
The next shortest-priced runners are then the unraced Hoffenhorry ($7.50) who trialed brilliantly at Rosehill earlier in the month, Clarry Conners’ Gimcrack Stakes fourth placegetter Dear Demi ($6.50) and the Gai Waterhouse-trained Fastnet Rock colt Burning Sails ($7.50).
A little further down the Wyong MM Classic markets punters can find Hoss Amor, the General Nediym filly ready to make her first official appearance having run a close fourth in a Rosehill trial over 900 meters on December 6.
“She galloped outstanding on Saturday morning so we war really excited about her debut on Thursday,” O’Shea said.
Hoss Amor is due to be ridden by Brenton Avdulla on Thursday, trial jockey Christian Reith engaged to ride Wyong rival Hidden Warrior, from barrier six.
It will be a nervous day for Hoss Amor’s interesting collection of connections that includes five promotion winners that scored a share in the filly thanks to a TAB Sportsbet promotion earlier in the year.
A successful debut and Hoss Amor could continue onto the 2012 Gold Coast Magic Millions 2YO Classic in Queensland on January 14, the filly currently rated a $51 roughie in the Luxbet futures on the feature.
