Just Orm Confirmed for 2016 Magic Millions 2YO Classic

Tony Gollan’s Saturday winner at the Sunshine Coast Just Orm is confirmed for this weekend’s Magic Millions 2YO Classic 2016 as the field for the Gold Coast feature takes shape.

Final acceptances for the lucrative $2 million Magic Millions 2YO Classic (1200m) have now closed with a ballot to decide the capacity 16-starter field for the Gold Coast Magic Millions Race Day highlight.

Third on debut at Doomben back on December 19, Gollan’s Falvelon two-year-old Just Orm secured his Magic Millions bid with a win in the $65,000 Yalumba ATIS Two-Years-Old Handicap (1000m) last Saturday.

Gollan will put the gelding on the short back-up into the tough Classic line-up this Saturday after Just Orm pulled through his maiden win in good order.

“They (my stable staff) reported everything was fine with him. He had a bit of ice on his legs but ate up well and everything is in order,” Gollan told The Australian over the weekend.

“We will go ahead and accept on Monday with him. He had a good blow after winning on Saturday but not for as long as when he ran third at his first start.”

Gollan will also be represented in the Magic Millions 2YO Classic field this summer by second favourite in betting, Zelady’s Night Out, to be ridden by Jim Byrne who partnered Just Orm to victory last Saturday.

Undefeated in her three career runs so far, Myboycharlie filly Zelady’s Night Out is a dual stakes winner thanks to victories in the Listed Calaway Gal Stakes (1050m) at Doomben and the Group 3 B.J. McLachlan Stakes (1200m) at the Gold Coast on Boxing Day at her two most recent runs.

Red hot favourite in Magic Millions Classic betting is the Peter & Paul Snowden-trained Capitalist who, like Zelady’s Night Out, is undefeated heading into the showdown.

The Written Tycoon colt took out Randwick’s Listed Breeders Plate (1000m) back in October last year before his impressive success in Wyong’s Magic Millions 2YO Classic (1100m) last month as the odds-on favourite.

While the bookies rate Capitalist as all but unbeatable, Gollan is confident his duo can run a competitive race this weekend especially his versatile filly Zelady’s Night Out.

“Capitalist is obviously a quality horse and I have a lot of respect for his trainers Peter and Paul Snowden, but Zelady’s Night Out is right where I want her,” he said.

“Her win in the McLachlan Stakes at the Gold Coast was just what she needed — a hit out at 1200 metres and a good look at the Gold Coast track.

“She handles wet and dry conditions and she can get out quickly from the barriers to lead or take up a position.”

The other best fancied juveniles to win the Magic Millions Classic this Queensland Summer Racing Carnival include Team Snowden’s other runner Niccolance coming off a second to his star stablemate in the Wyong lead-up, the Kelso Wood-trained BJ McLachlan third-placed Snitzel colt Nikitas and Gai Waterhouse’s runner-up in the same traditional lead-up Slumber Party.

Stay tuned for the official 2016 Magic Millions 2YO Classic field, with the barrier draw to be conducted on the Gold Coast on Tuesday morning.
