Magic Millions 3YO Guineas 2015 Aim for Brazen Moss

Rosehill’s Gerald Ryan has opted to run his 2015 Magic Millions 3YO Guineas hope Brazen Moss at Canterbury Park on Wednesday ahead of next month’s classic on the Gold Coast in favour of a start in the Wyong Magic Millions 3YO Stakes on Thursday.

Mossman gelding Brazen Moss is already qualified for the $1 million Magic Millions 3YO Guineas (1400m) at the Gold Coast on January 10 and looking in no danger of missing out on a spot in the field.

He’s currently 12th on the Magic Millions 3YO Guineas order of entry with his eligible prize money sitting at $65,385 thanks to six placings from his seven career starts to date.

His only run outside the top three was on debut at Rosehill in October last year when fourth behind a very smart line-up – Bold Circle (1st), Sheer Style (2nd) and subsequent Magic Millions 2YO Classic winner Unencumbered (3rd).

Instead of testing him in the $100,000 Wyong Magic Millions 3YO Stakes (1200m) against a top class field including the Gai Waterhouse-trained Echo Girl and Ballarat Magic Millions winner Murt The Flirt, Ryan then has opted for an easier mid-week assignment at Canterbury.

“We had the option to go to the 100,000-dollar race Wyong but he should have enough prize to make the field for the Magic Millions Guineas,” Ryan told Racenet.

“We thought the Canterbury race was a bit easier and we want to get the horse a win.”

He has accepted Brazen Moss for the $40,000 Tab Place Multi Handicap (1250m) tomorrow with the horse jumping from barrier seven with Tye Angland in the saddle in the hopes of breaking the youngster’s maiden status.

“He’s still a bit immature and lacks a bit of strength. Those things are probably why he’s still a maiden,” Ryan said.

“He’s a trier but unfortunately he’s one of those horses that tends to find one better. Some handy horses have beaten him.”

Brazen Moss had a frustrating succession of second place finishes when runner-up in all five of his runs earlier in the year between 1100m and 1500m on everything from a Good (3) to a Heavy (8) rated track.

After a six month spell he returned on December 3 at Canterbury, where he returns this week, to cross only half a length away third behind Skylimit in a three-year-old colts and geldings’ maiden plate over 1200m.

That was his first run since being gelded and he is tipped for improvement again on Wednesday where he is likely to start favourite in the markets at to record his first win.

Ryan is willing to forgive his loss when resuming and said there will be no excuses if he doesn’t salute for the punters second-up.

“Fitness probably cost him first-up,” he said.

“He only had one soft trial going into that because I wanted to get him racing before heading up to the Magic Millions.

“We are going to ride him off the speed a bit tomorrow because I think he goes better so hopefully they go along a bit to give him the chance to hit the line.”

In the futures Magic Millions 3YO Guineas odds at Ladbrokes Brazen Moss is rated a $17 chance in markets led by Tony Gollan’s stakes winning filly Hijack Hussy.

Ryan confirmed that a Canterbury win this week will see Brazen Moss progress straight into the Guineas without another run.

“If he wins tomorrow he will head to the Magic Millions three-year-old race without another run,” he said.
