Three – Four Say Waterhouse Can Score 2012 Magic Millions Quinella

Ideal barriers for her two Magic Millions Classic 2012 contenders at the Gold Coast this Saturday have Gai Waterhouse chipper over her chances of again running the quinella in the famous feature after she did so back in 2001.

Gai Waterhouse is out to score her second Magic Millions Classic quinella on Saturday with Driefontein and No Looking Back

Over the years Waterhouse has prepared three Magic Millions Classic winners with Dance Hero (2004), Excellerator (2001) and her maiden victor Assertive Lad (2000).

It was her second year winning the iconic Classic that she enjoyed a double-shot of success with Miss Bussell finishing just a long neck away second to their winning stablemate Excellerator back in 2001.

This year Waterhouse is back with two livewire chances in the $2 million Gold Coast Magic Millions 2YO Classic (1200m) in undefeated fillies Driefontein and No Looking Back.

Of the dynamic duo it is her daughter of Fastnet Rock, Driefontein, who leads the way.

Driefontein is currently sitting second in the Magic Millions Classic markets at Luxbet paying $3.60, trailing only the Kelso Wood-trained Sizzling ($3.40).

“Driefontein most certainly deserves to be the early favourite and she is similar to the mode of other winners I’ve had in the race,” Waterhouse said.

“Like most good horses she is bombproof.”

Drawn to perfection in gate three with last year’s Magic Millions winning jockey Tommy Berry engaged, Dreifontein will look to repeat the winning performances of her two career starts to date that saw her win by three lengths at Randwick over 1000 metres in November and then take out the Group 3 BJ McLachlan Stakes (1200m) over Sizzling at Doomben on December 31.

“Driefontein has tremendous natural gate speed and can lead or just sit on the pace,” Waterhouse said.

“I think she is a good thing.

“She has done everything right and she won a Group race last month against both sexes by a substantial margin.”

Waterhouse has also warned punters not to ignore No Looking Back despite the fact no Magic Millions Classic winner in history has ever won at just their second start.

The Redoute’s Choice filly out of 2006 MM Classic winner Mirror Mirror pays $14 in the latest Luxbet odds having won her sole race start to date over 1000 metres at Warwick farm back on November 19.

No Looking Back will be ridden by Nash Rawiller on Saturday from barrier four where she should hopefully get a nice run on the back of her front-running stablemate.

“No Looking Back is a quality filly and people shouldn’t underestimate her, particularly now with the good draw,” Waterhouse said.

“It’s not silly to think we can quinella the race and both fillies are going very well.

“No Looking Back was impressive last preparation, beating a very nice filly in Blazing Snitzel.”

Whether you want to follow Waterhouse’s Magic Millions Classic tip and lock her two into the Quinella, or back another smart two-year-old in the field to win, Luxbet have the best odds on the race.
