Versatile Missy Longstocking Primed for 2013 Magic Millions Classic

A versatile Missy Longstocking is ready to attack the 2013 Magic Millions Classic (1200m) on January 12 after showing another string in her bow during her 2012 BJ McLachlan Stakes (1200m) win on Saturday.

Missy Longstocking is one of the top chances for the Magic Millions Classic

The Liam Birchley-trained filly took her unbeaten streak to four against a quality field of juveniles but it was the manner in which she raced that showed she is an above average galloper.

After previously being ridden positively, Damian Browne elected to position the daughter of Sequalo midfield quietly, allowing her to explode at the finish to a 1 1/2 length win over Sweet Idea and Architect.

Birchley said the race tactics were deliberate and is pleased that his young charge passed the test with flying colours ahead of Saturday week’s $2 million glamour race.

“For whatever reason if the situation occurred in the Magic Millions and she had to get back in the ruck we needed to know how she would cope,”the Eagle Farm trainer said.

“I think she showed today she is quite versatile and can handle being ridden anywhere.”

Browne has ridden the exciting filly to her three most recent wins and believes the weekend unlocked her most suitable riding style.

“I think she’s a better horse ridden in behind,” Browne said.

“She was always travelling well and picked them up quite easily when I went for her.”

The win on Saturday catapulted Missy Longstocking on to the third line of betting for the Magic Millions for what she is currently paying $7.50.

Clarry Connors-trained filly Assail is the $3.70 favourite slightly ahead of Ricke Hore-Lacy’s Clevadude who was a dominant start-to-finish winner at Moonee Valley on Saturday.
