Class rises to the top in Wyong feature
The Chris Waller-trained She’s All Class has rocketed to the top of markets for the $2 million Magic Millions Classic with an emphatic victory in a crucial lead up race at Wyong.
Resuming after a debut placing in the Victory Vein Plate in October, She’s All Class wobbled around the home turn before balancing up and unleashing a dashing sprint to post a runaway 4-3/4 length win.
The TAB immediately slashed her price for the Gold Coast showpiece from $51 and she is now a $4.50 equal favourite, alongside stablemate and Breeders’ Plate winner Shaquero.
“We always knew she had ability. She works like a pretty good horse at home,” winning jockey James McDonald told Sky Thoroughbred Central.
“Chris and the team have always had that opinion of her and we just needed her to come here today and see what she could do. Albeit, she wasn’t that comfortable around the track but she got the job done.
“She’s got a good turn of foot and obviously six furlongs (1200m) is going to be right up her alley.”
McDonald has a good grasp on the two-year-old stocks this season having won the Gimcrack Stakes and Breeders’ Plate on Enthaar and Shaquero respectively, along with Saturday’s Inglis Nursery on Acrobat.
However, the top hoop would not be drawn on splitting the youngsters.
“They’re all very good,” McDonald said.
The victory was Waller’s first in the Magic Millions Wyong 2YO Classic and stable representative Dan Cobby confirmed She’s All Class had secured her passage to Queensland.
“Very impressed by that performance,” Cobby said.
“She was in a perfect position, they went very hard in front there.
“She will join Shaquero and potentially a couple of others as well so we’re looking forward to the Magic Millions.”
She’s All Class ($7) defeated first starter Gleneagles, who was backed into $4.80 favouritism, with Swift Witness ($5) third.
The Greg Hickman-trained Eleven Eleven overcame a wide run to claim the Magic Millions Wyong 3YO and 4YO Stakes (1200m) earlier on Wednesday’s program.
