Egyptian Symbol Shapes Up for Magic Millions Guineas 2016

The 2016 Magic Millions 3YO Guineas on the Gold Coast next month is shaping up as a nice summer option for Bjorn Baker’s improving filly Egyptian Symbol.

The lightly raced daughter of Stratum from former star mare Our Egyptian Raine has had two runs to date and is undefeated with two wins around New South Wales that she looks to add to this Sunday in the $40,000 Black Diamond Cup (1200m) at Kembla Grange.

She debuted at the same track in mid-July after three straight Sydney city trial wins to score narrowly over 1000m before being put away again.

Returning on November 12 she posted a second win this time at Gosford in a Class 2, jockey Glyn Schofield in the saddle once more for her one length effort over Super Tycoon after swooping down the outside.

Now her Warwick Farm-based trainer has accepted for Sunday’s Black Diamond Cup that has attracted a capacity field with 14 to line-up in the Benchmark 65 Handicap.

Schofield rides Baker’s filly for a third time but she has work to do to retain her undefeated status after suffering an early blow with the outside alley in the big line-up.

“She’s always shown us a lot, I think she’s a quality horse no doubt about it,” Baker told Racenet.

“There’s not much we can do about it [the barrier] but she’s in good order and it’s a $40,000 race.

“Her work has been good and I’m happy with her heading into the race.

“I’ll leave the tactics to Glyn – we could go forward or back, she’s got tactical speed.”

Egyptian Symbol is the lightest raced in the field and so it is a genuine test this weekend to see if it is worth pressing onto the Gold Coast Magic Millions Race Day with her in Queensland on January 9.

Baker said all going well the race he will target with her is the lucrative $2 million Magic Millions 3YO Guineas (1400m).

“That’s definitely an option,” he confirmed.

“But we’ll take it one step at a time, that’s not the be all and end all.”

Currently Egyptian Symbol is only rated a $61 outsider in the pre-field Magic Millions 3YO Guineas odds at, a price sure to firm with a third win on Sunday.

The markets are led by the well-bred Gerald Ryan-trained Golden Rose third placed colt Sebring Sun ($4.60) followed closely by Gai Waterhouse’s Stratum filly Flamboyant Lass ($5) and Darren Weir’s Sandown Guineas winning colt Mahuta ($5) who has won four of his six starts to date.
