Fille Vilaine Vies for 2012 Magic Millions Guineas Start

John O’Shea’s improving Dane Shadow filly Fille Vilaine will get one last shot at securing a start in Saturday week’s Magic Millions Guineas 2012 on the Gold Coast when she races at Warwick Farm on the weekend.


The three-year-old is engaged to face off against a quality field of fellow fillies in Warwick Farm Race 2 tomorrow, the $70,000 Vili’s Bakery Handicap (1400m).

O’Shea is confident that the 1400 metres will suit Fille Vilaine, purchased for $50,000 at the 2010 Magic Millions Yearling Sales, after she won over 1300 metres at Kembla Grange first-up last start on December 17.

Fille Vilaine started three times as a two-year-old, including a run over 1400 metres at Rosehill when a close fourth to Extraceed.

“She ran well over 1400 metres as a two-year-old and it is worth having a shot at it,” O’Shea said.

Fille Vilaine is currently well down the order of entry for the $1 million Magic Millions 3YO Guineas (1400m) sitting 63rd in the ballot for the January 14 showdown.

With Magic Millions qualified prize money of just $17,700, she needs to win tomorrow to move up the entries and have any shot at earning a spot in the capacity 16-starter, five-emergency Magic Millions Guineas field, acceptances for which close on Monday.

First prize for Fille Vilaine’s Warwick Farm assignment tomorrow is $42,000, and if successful she would move up to 26th in the MM Guineas ballot.

While still not assured of a start should this occur, there are a number of horses higher up the entries that are likely non-acceptors including the Gai Waterhouse-trained duo Niagara and Just The Tonic, keeping the Magic Millions dream alive for O’Shea.

In the current Magic Millions Guineas odds available at our preferred online bookmaker Luxbet, Fille Vilaine is rated a $71 chance.

She pays $6.50 in the markets for tomorrow’s race, Chris Waller’s Mickelberg leading the betting at $4.60 after their eye-catching second to O’Shea’s Sydney Autumn Carnival-bound filly Sea Siren at Canterbury on Wednesday.
