2016 Magic Millions Classic Hope Just Orm Debuts

Brisbane’s head horseman of the season Tony Gollan puts the 2016 Magic Millions 2YO Classic credentials of his unraced youngster Just Orm to the test with the two-year-old’s debut at Doomben this weekend.

The Magic Millions graduate has his first run without an official trial on Bernborough Handicap Day on Saturday in Doomben Race 2 – the $65,000 Hamilton Hotel QTIS Two-Years-Old Handicap (1100m) – as one of a dozen juveniles in the mix.

Dominant favourite at $2.30 for the win through Ladbrokes.com.au, who are offering Best Tote or SP + 20% on Saturday’s Bernborough Handicap, the Falvelon gelding is tipped to thrive in his maiden run as Gollan looks to see exactly what the youngster is made of.

Drawn wide in barrier 10, Tegan Harrison has the ride on the top fancy who is out to stake his claims on a Gold Coast bid on January 9 in the $2 million Magic Millions 2YO Classic (1200m).

The undefeated Peter & Paul Snowden-trained Capitalist is $2 all-on favourite to win next month’s restricted classic in Queensland after his authoritative victory in Thursday’s Wyong Magic Millions Classic.

Despite not having raced previously, Just Orm already occupies the sixth line of futures Magic Millions 2YO Classic betting at $17.

It is a price that is sure to firm if he can salute for the punters at Doomben after a big betting move on the debutant who opened as long as $8 before firming into favouritism.

The horse ran good time in a non-official jump-out leading up to Saturday and while keeping his confidence in check, Gollan is hoping the horse can run well for the enthusiastic connections.

“I think it might be a case of a big group of owners getting a bit excited,” Gollan told AAP.

“I expect him to race well but he does have a tricky barrier and he is having his first start.”

As for a Gold Coast Magic Millions Day assignment, Gollan said he will be guided by how Just Orm performs on the weekend before getting ahead of himself.

“Just Orm is a nice horse but whether he is up to the Magic Millions we will see on Saturday,” the Brisbane Trainers’ Premiership leader said.

“I suppose one advantage (on Saturday) is that there are two pace horses drawn outside him in Greyt Start and Rothabye.

“They will have to cross him.”

Drawn one on outside of Just Orm in barrier 11 is the Michael Nolan-trained Captain Sonador filly Greyt Start ($4.80) who won on debut over 1000m at Toowoomba back in late September by over seven lengths in her only other run to date.

Rothabye ($31) has the outside alley in the 12-starter field and will also be looking to cross and hit the front after the Trevor Miller-trained gelding showed good speed to win at home on the Sunshine Coast on November 15.

Purchased for $45,000 from the Magic Millions Yearling Sale, Just Orm is nicely bred being a son of dual Doomben 10,000 winner Falvelon (2001-02) out of Honours List mare Stay In Honour and Gollan hopes the horse can live up to his pedigree.

“There are a couple of Group winners in his family and he obviously is bred to have some pace,” he said.
