Catseye Surprise On Trial for 2013 Magic Millions Guineas Berth

Terry Croft-trained filly Catseye Surprise can book a spot in the $1 million 2013 Magic Millions Guineas (1400m) if she breaks her maiden status in the $85,000 Bowemans Office Furniture Handicap (1200m) at Rosehill on Saturday.

The daughter of Testa Rossa will make a trip to the Gold Coast regardless but her performance this weekend will determine whether she will contest the Guineas or the Magic Millions maiden.

Catseye Surprise has come agonisingly close to victory this preparation, scoring three consecutive runner-up finishes.

Croft admits it has been a frustrating period but is confident she has the ability to secure an elusive win in the near future.

“It’s a bit annoying but she’s very honest,” Croft said.

Croft has no concerns about her ability to compete in Saturday company, pointing to the fact she was only narrowly beaten by favourite Gullible at her last start.

She is currently rated a $9 chance behind Gullible ($3.40), Centrepet ($3.60), Voluntina ($6.50) and Prettyfamous ($8.00).

Gullible, from the Chris Waller stable, has been particularly impressive since debuting in October.

The daughter of Shamardal was a close second on debut at Kembla Grange before scoring back-to-back victories at Hawkesbury and Canterbury.

Catseye Surprise is currently rated a $101 chance for the Magic Millions Guineas, a market that is headed by Group 1-winning colt Sizzling ($5) and Gai Waterhouse-trained filly Driefontein ($6.50).
