Le Chef Needs Dry 2015 Magic Millions Classic Track

It is looking like the Gold Coast track will be soft during Saturday’s Magic Millions Race Day following more rainfall during the week. That means that a number of the greener two-year-olds in the Magic Millions Classic (1200m) could lose their chance at winning the $2 million feature race, including Le Chef.

However the gelding’s hoop Luke Tarrant isn’t losing hope just yet; he’s banking on the track’s impressive drainage system to get the rating up to good.

Le Chef has luckily drawn barrier three, which is the ideal gate for a dry track.

Give me a dry track and we are right in it,” Tarrant told Sky Racing.

“I know he won on a soft track last start but he didn’t really handle it.

“Still, they are all two-year-olds and they all have to get through it.”

The Darryl Hansen-trained gelding is a $21 shot in the Magic Millions Classic betting market at Ladbrokes.com.au after an impressive win at the Gold Coast last Saturday.

Le Chef will back up after winning the First National Handicap (1200m) one length ahead of Real Good, which followed a four and a half length victory in the XXXX Gold QTIS 2YO Maiden Plate (1100m) at Ipswich on December 24.

While the gelding has proved more than capable over the distance of the Magic Millions Classic, whether he can hold his own against the classy field is to be disputed. He finished fifth in the Breakfast Creek Hotel Handicap (1050m) on debut back in November after jumping awkwardly. Le Chef ultimately finished ten and a half lengths behind winner Wicked Intent, who is co-favourite to win on Saturday.

Hansen seconded Tarrant’s desires for a dry track but believes Le Chef will race well regardless.
