They may be one of the longest-priced roughies in Saturday’s Magic Millions 2YO Classic 2013 on the Gold Coast but Mornington-based trainer Mark Riley is hopeful that with a bit of luck I’m Too Sexy can be a competitive force in the $2 million showdown.
The Reaan filly burst onto the racing scene at Ballarat in her debut back on November 25 winning the Magic Millions Clockwise Classic (1000m) by an easy three lengths.
She was disappointing second-up however when beating home just one other runner finishing over 16 lengths away 11th to Missy Longstocking, a $7 MM Classic chance on Saturday having been given the all clear to run, in the Group 3 B.J. McLachlan Stakes (1200m) at Doomben on December 29.
“That day the track was very hard and she jarred up in the run,” Riley said.
Since then Riley has given the youngster plenty of work on the water walker and this combined with a new pair of shoes and some luck will hopefully see her improve.
“She has been on the water walker and now we couldn’t be happier with her,” he added.
The latest Magic Millions Classic odds Clarry Conners’ rails-drawn filly Assail, yet to taste defeat having won both of her career starts so far, is the $2.80 favourite.
Much further down the MM 2YO Classic betting markets punters can find I’m Too Sexy paying $41 – a generous price according to Riley who believes she’s an honest smokey that could score a massive boil over.
“If you can rule out her Doomben run, then you would have her right in the mix on the back of what she did at Ballarat,” Riley said.
“She looks fantastic and we think she is a very good chance.”
I’m Too Sexy is drawn in gate 10 but will come into eight with the emergencies out, a position Riley hopes she can work from as jockey Luke Currie maintains his association with her.
“Hopefully she can go forward and could quite easily lead,” Riley said.
“He (Currie) is a very good rider and I am happy to leave it in his capable hands.
“If the opportunity presents itself to lead, then I am sure he will take it, but otherwise I am sure he has other plans.”
