Wonderful Filly On Millions Path
Untapped filly Miss Wonderland will use a benchmark 70 handicap for fillies over 1100m at Flemington on Saturday as a stepping stone to next month's Magic Millions 3YO Guineas at the Gold Coast, reports AAP. The 3YO daughter of Snitzel has shown tremendous promise in her two starts to date, romping home on debut by six lengths before resuming with an excellent third in the Gr3 VRC Crown Resorts Plate (1100m) at Flemington on Oaks Day. "Hopefully she'll run well at Flemington on Saturday and then she'll go to Canterbury on the 31st (of December) over 1250 metres," said David Eustace, assistant to trainer Ciaron Maher. "Hopefully then she's got enough prize money to get into the Magic Millions three-year-old race." He added: "We've always had a pretty high opinion of her and she's still very untried." The $2 million Magic Millions 3YO Guineas (1400m) will be run at the Gold Coast on 14 January.
