The Bowler Late 2015 Magic Millions Cup Entry

Caulfield trainer Robert Smerdon has confirmed over the weekend the late entry of his up-and-coming galloper The Bowler for Saturday’s Magic Millions Cup 2015 at the Gold Coast Racecourse.

Originally the Gold Coast Turf Club took 25 nominations for this year’s $328,000 Magic Millions Cup (1400m), but that figure will increase by one with connections opting to give four-year-old Testa Rossa gelding The Bowler a shot paying the $275 late entry.

A $67,500 yearling buy from the 2012 Gold Coast Magic Millions Sales, The Bowler was last seen winning the $80,000 Williamstown Handicap (1400m) by three-quarters of a length over Paddy’s Gem at Flemington on New Year’s Day.

That was his first win since February and his fourth career victory from 19 starts.

Formerly with Tony Vasil he was tested in Group 1 company just two runs into his opening season but failed when 13th of 14 runners behind Miracles Of Life in the 2013 Blue Diamond Stakes.

Since then his best effort in black-type company as a close second to Honey Steel’s Gold in the Listed Taj Rossie Series Final (1600m) that July over the Flemington mile.

Vasil ran The Bowler at the Gold Coast last Magic Millions Race Day in the $1 million Magic Millions 3YO Guineas for a fifth behind the Gai Waterhouse-trained filly Sweet Idea, and a return in 2015 is now on the cards after he left from his Melbourne stables on Sunday.

“There’s not that much at home for him and he’s booked on a float this afternoon to go up to the Gold Coast,” Smerdon told RSN’s Correct Weight on Sunday.

“That’s the immediate plan because there weren’t a lot of options for him in Melbourne and it’s a really rich race.

“He’s in good form and he came here last year and ran in the Magic Millions three-year-old race so he’s run right-handed before.”

Like the Guineas the Magic Millions Cup is also run over 1400m, the same distance The Bowler enjoyed his impressive victory over on January 1.

Smerdon will also be represented on Saturday by Real Time either in the Magic Millions Cup or the $82,000 Magic Millions Class 6 Plate (1200m) for which the fellow four-year-old son of Testa Rossa is also entered.

“Real Time’s got a lower rating and if he doesn’t make the (Magic Millions Cup) field he’ll have to run in the 1200m class six but at this stage they’ll both run in the same race,” Smerdon said.
