Waterhouse Chasing Back-to-back Titles in 2013 Magic Millions Classic

Top Sydney trainer Gai Waterhouse will be out to record her second straight title in the 2013 Magic Millions Classic (1200m) at the Gold Coast on Saturday.

Sweet Idea

Sweet Idea is one of two chances for Gai Waterhouse in the Magic Millions Classic

The “first lady of racing” will saddle up two runners, Certitude and Sweet Idea, but could have a third with Rockford one of the emergencies.

Waterhouse quinellad the $2 million two-year-old feature with Driefontein and No Looking Back last year and while her pair won’t start as favourites, they are genuine winning chances.

Certitude shot into Magic Millions contention when he bolted home on debut in November to win the Goldners Horse Transport Plate (1100m) by five lengths.

But he will have to bounce back from his last start where he was beaten nearly five lengths when fourth to Magic Millions Classic favourite Assail.

Tommy Berry, who is number one stable jockey in the absence of Nash Rawiller, will remain aboard Certitude but will have to be on his game to find a favourable position after his mount drew wide in barrier 19.

The raw filly is a daughter of Not A Single Doubt and was bought for $80,000 at the 2011 National Weanling Sale.

Sweet Idea has been a consistent performer since debuting with victory in the TAB Sprint Plate at Randwick in October.

The Snitzel filly fared slightly better at the barrier draw (13) and will be out to continue the form that has seen her produce runner-up finishes at her past two starts.

She was beaten by just a half-length in the Lidoran Group Plate at Rosehill in November before leading for most of the race when finishing behind unbeaten Queensland filly in the Group 3 BJ McLachlan Stakes last start.
