Flying Jess After Magic Millions 3YO Guineas 2017 Upset

Caulfield’s John Moloney is happy to track towards the Gold Coast’s 2017 Magic Millions 3YO Guineas with his outside hope Flying Jess.

All the pre-field money for this season’s $2 million Magic Millions 3YO Guineas (1400m), running at the Gold Coast on January 14, is on the undefeated Bjorn Baker-trained Winning Rupert.

After posting his fourth win from as many starts last weekend in Doomben’s Listed Gold Edition Plate the classy colt firmed into clear $2.40 favouritism at Ladbrokes.com.au in early Magic Millions Guineas odds.

Moloney’s three-year-old daughter of Hinchinbrook Flying Jess meanwhile is only rated a $41 chance in those same all-in Magic Millions Gold Coast 3YO Guineas betting markets.

She has had 10 runs so far for just the one career win in Adelaide on April 30 in the Group 3 SA Sires’ Produce Stakes (1400m).

She has finished out of the money in her five subsequent starts and was last seen running under two lengths away fourth as a $31 outsider behind Prompt Response in the Listed Twilight Glow Stakes (1400m) at Sandown on November 12.

“That was her first run with the blinkers and she was probably a little bit unlucky not to be right in the finish,” Moloney told Racing Victoria on Monday.

“But she’d been pleasing me all the way.

“ he wasn’t ready her first couple of runs back and then she ran well when Brenton [Avdulla] was on a wide run there at Caulfield [when sixth to Jennifer Lynn on October 15] and she didn’t run a bad race and then she was disappointed at Flemington where she didn’t quite put in well enough for that race [finishing 13th in a Listed Melbourne Cup Day race].

“She then ran well in the Twilight Glow without much luck at the finish.”

Moloney has since freshened-up his filly and plans to track towards $60,000 2015 Magic Millions Gold Coast Yearling Sales buy into the Guineas via a Canterbury run on New Year’s Eve.

“She’s a stakes winner and she’s [qualified to be] in the race so she we’ll be taking our chance,” he said.

“There are some good horses she’ll come up against but it’s a $2 million race and you’re guaranteed a start so we’re keen to give it a go.

“She’s a lovely style of horse but only cost about $60,000 out of the main sale.

“We’re happy with how she’s coming along.

“She might have a run in Sydney at Canterbury on the 31st [of December]. It’s a three-year-old race over 1200m there and so it’s a run on the way up there and it gives her a go on that leg and that gives her two weeks then until the 1400m Magic Millions race.

“Some of the better ones might test her but she deserves a chance if she’s going well.”

Flying Jess is currently sitting fourth on the Magic Millions 3YO Guineas order of entry being a Group 3 winner, despite her prize money only sitting at $89,430.
