Sheer Style ‘Forgotten Horse’ in 2014 Magic Millions Classic

Hawkesbury horseman Garry Frazer has declared his filly Sheer Style as one of the forgotten hopes heading towards the Magic Millions 2YO Classic 2014 on the Gold Coast Saturday week.

Originally one of the single figure fancies in the pre-field markets for the $2 million Gold Coast Magic Millions Classic (1200m), the two-year-old daughter of Snitzel has since eased out to $19 to win.

After back-to-back seconds to kick off her career on the track in the early spring, Sheer Style broke her maiden status at Ballarat on November 24.

There she beat home Geromayo by a length to take out the $200,000 Magic Millions Clockwise Classic (1000m) on a Heavy (8) track.

That performance saw her skyrocket up the Magic Millions 2YO Classic odds for the Gold Coast event on January 11 which she was as short as $7 to win during December.

She backed up from her win at Ballarat contesting another restricted lead-up, the $200,000 Wyong Magic Millions 2YO Classic (1100m).

Suffering from heat stress on the day she put in a brave effort to run one and a half lengths away third behind the Bjorn Baker-trained Unencumbered, a performance Frazer blames on himself.

“I think I was guilty of being too soft on her between her Ballarat win and Wyong,” he told The Daily Telegraph on Thursday.

“She nearly blew the house down after the Wyong race.”

Testa Rossa colt Unencumbered came into the Magic Millions at Wyong on the back of a Kensington win and continued on just nine days later to score a Group 3 trophy in the BJ McLachlan Stakes (1200m) at Doomben.

They now lead the Magic Millions 2YO Classic betting markets at paying $4.20.

Also at single figures are the likes of the Hawkes-trained Canterbury winner Invisible ($5.50), Nordic Empire ($7.50) for Mick Price and last start Flemington winner I Am The General ($9.50).

Meanwhile Sheer Style has dropped out of the major players.

Frazer though remains confident she has what it takes to bounce back and can’t believe how much she’s blown out in the odds.

“I’m sure she is the forgotten filly of the race,” he said.

“She has gone from $7 to $21 because of one loss.”

He gave her another run this time in a Randwick trial this morning where she finished under a length away third behind a Gai Waterhouse-trained duo over 728m.

The distance was likely a little sharp but it looked a lovely lead-up towards the Gold Coast where she’ll hopefully be back to her best with Frazer using a different bit as part of her gear to try to stop her rushing home.

“The winner was too good at Wyong the other day but if she had not run off the track she would have been right in the finish,” he said.

“We will try the new bit and I’d like her to be ridden off the speed because I know she can really rush home.”

It also continued her nice running since her defeat after she also pulled out a stellar gallop at Hawkesbury last Saturday.

“I asked Jason Collett to come out and ride her in that track gallop and she ran 33.32s for the last 600m on the inside track at Hawkesbury,” Frazer said.

“That is a very tight track and I haven’t seen anything gallop faster on that track in 10 years.

“Jason doesn’t say a lot but he came back in after the gallop and said he couldn’t believe how much the filly has improved.”
