2014 Magic Night Stakes Nominations Released

With a ballot-free entry into the 2014 Group 1 Golden Slipper (1200m) figuring as the major prize on this weekend, 21 classy fillies have nominated for a position in the Group 2 Magic Night Stakes (1200m) at Rosehill Gardens.

One of the formed stables of the 2014 racing calendar so far, Team Hawkes are set to be offered twice the chance of Magic Night Stakes success this weekend, having nominated classy stable mates Lady Sharapova and London Lolly.

While only contesting the one race start to date, Lady Sharapova was impressive when moving from the rear of the field in the final straight to finish an unlucky third in the Listed Talindert Stakes (1100m) on February 15th, and continued to impress when claiming a strong Rosehill barrier trial last week.

London Lolly arguably offers the strong Flemington-based team their best chance of claiming the 2014 Magic Night Stakes, having quickly built to the task at hand in three race starts to date.

Opening with a strong run for fourth in the Listed Blue Diamond Preview (1000m) on January 25th, the exciting Charge Forward filly was impressive when second in the Quest Moonee Valley Maiden (1000m) before claiming her maiden race victory in the Listed St Albans Stakes (1200m) last time out.

While unlikely to contest the Golden Slipper this preparation, Team Hawkes have outlined the Royal Randwick Stakes (1200m) on April 19th as the major target for London Lolly this season, and are confident of another strong showing at Rosehill this weekend.

Trainer Gerald Ryan is set to dominate the final field for the 2014 Magic Night Stakes, having nominated four runners including leading chances Peggy Jean and Tetsuko.

Peggy Jean is yet to finish outside the places in three race starts to date, unlucky to finish second to classy two-year-old Nayeli in the 2014 ATC Membership On Sale Maiden (1000m) first-up before strolling home ahead of a particularly talented field to claim the Inglis Classic (1200m) and finishing third in the Membership On Sale Now Handicap (1200m) last time out.

Also yet to finish outside the places in three starts so far, Tetsuko arguably poses the biggest threat of all nominees to the 2014 Magic Night Stakes, having finished an unlucky second in the Listed Gimcrack Stakes (1000m) first-up, winning the Big Sports Breakfast Plate (1100m) and producing a strong turn of foot to finish third amongst particularly classy company in the Group 2 Sweet Embrace Stakes (1200m) last time out.

Having claimed the Listed Sports 1000 (1000m) on debut and finishing a competitive third in the St Albans most recently, talented Peter Moody-trained filly Bring Me The Maid is in line to open as favourite in betting markets for the 2015 Magic Night Stakes.

Owned by the syndicate of Wylie Dalziel and the late, great Roy Higgins, Moody has outlined the Royal Randwick Stakes as the major targets for the talented Sebring filly this preparation, and is confident of returning to the winner’s circle this weekend.

A final field and barrier draw for the 2014 Magic Night Stakes is due for release on Wednesday morning.
