Cushy Draw for Capitalist in Wyong Magic Millions Classic

Co-trainer Peter Snowden is confident odds-on favourite Capitalist can make the most of a “cushy” draw in this afternoon’s 2015 Wyong Magic Millions 2YO Classic and salute for the punters ahead of his Gold Coast assignment next month.

The Written Tycoon colt entered calculations for the famous $2.5 million Gold Coast Magic Millions 2YO Classic (1200m) run on January 9 with his early October victory in the Listed Breeders Plate (1000m) at Randwick.

It was an effortless three length win on debut for the promising youngster who won with ease again in a 900m Rosehill trial at the start of December ahead of his second career run this week at Wyong Racecourse.

Gearing up for his trip to Queensland Capitalist runs in the $200,000 Wyong Magic Millions 2YO Classic (1100m) as one of just nine remaining hopes after the scratching of the Gai Waterhouse-trained Preferito.

Blake Shinn retains the ride on the firming $1.30 in betting at, who are offering Best Tote or SP + 20% on the race this afternoon, and the duo will get a gun run from barrier three.

Snowden, who prepares Capitalist as well as rival Niccolance ($5.50) in partnership with his son Paul, told Racing Victoria this week the top fancy was in the same form as he was for his Breeders Plate success and that from the gate he will be very hard to beat.

“He’s a lovely individual, he’s trialled really well, and he’s as sharp as what he was when he won the Breeders’ Plate,” Snowden said.

“Off a really cushy draw today he seems to get a similar run just behind the speed and hopefully just continue on his winning way.

“He’s nowhere near wound right up yet, this race is definitely going to bring him on, but he’s a horse you don’t really have to pound the work into.

“He’s a very athletic colt he keeps himself fit, so we’re more than happy today and hopefully he can tick this box and look forward to the Gold Coast.”

Capitalist pays $3 to continue on to win the Gold Coast Magic Millions 2YO Classic and is also one of the best in betting for the world’s richest race for two-year-olds, the $3.5 million Group 1 Golden Slipper Stakes (1200m) at Rosehill Gardens on March 19.

Snowden has prepared one Golden Slipper winner previously with star colt Sepoy in 2011 when he was head trainer for Darley, now Godolphin.

Godolphin also prepare current Golden Slipper favourite Astern who at $7 is just a dollar shorter than Capitalist in the all-in markets for the Sydney Autumn Racing Carnival classic.

Astern is a son of Medaglia D’Oro and won his Randwick debut on December 5 with a two and a half length win over 1000m ahead of Niccolance, the Snowden’s other Wyong MM Classic hope today.

Apprentice Koby Jennings stays on the Nicconi colt who backed up from his second on debut at the start of the month with a blistering six length trial win over 800m at Kembla Grange just a few days later.
