Nothing Wrong With Missy Longstocking Ahead of 2013 Magic Millions Classic

Liam Birchley has shot down claims his unbeaten 2013 Magic Millions Classic (1200m) contender Missy Longstocking is not at full health ahead of tomorrow’s glamour two-year-old race.

Missy Longstocking is fit and ready for the Magic Millions Classic

Racing Queensland released a statement this morning saying that a veterinary examination carried out yesterday afternoon “revealed the filly to be striding slightly short in front.”

She underwent further inspections this morning following trackwork and was subsequently passed fit to contest the Saturday’s $2 million sprint.

Birchley was disappointed at the suggestions his charge was not at 100 per cent, telling stewards she has had an uninterrupted preparation since taking out the Group 3 BJ McLachlan Stakes on December 29.

The Eagle Farm-based filly is yet to taste defeat from four starts and is rated an $8 chance for the Magic Millions Classic for which she will jump from a plum barrier five position.

She will be ridden by regular jockey Damian Browne who believes he has unlocked the key to the filly.

Missy Longstocking led in her early outings but in the BJ McLachlan Stakes showed she was more than a one-trick pony as she emerged from midfield with a sharp turn of foot to round up her rivals for a 1 1/2 length win.

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

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

Birchley believes the versatility Missy Longstocking possesses provides her with a key advantage in the Magic Millions as she should be able to adapt no matter where she lands in the run.

Sydney filly Assail is the current Magic Millions Classic favourite at $2.80 with Victorian Clevadude the next best at $4.80.
