With $2.5 million in prizemoney up for grabs, we’re sure to see some of the season’s top two-year-olds target the Gold Coast feature.
Madeenaty was purchased for $775, 000 and justified the hefty price tag with a strong win in the Maribyrnong Trial (1000m) at Flemington on debut.
He then came down the wrong part of the straight when beaten by Invincible Star and Lucky Loui in the Ottowa Stakes (1000m) at the same track but lost no admirers with the game effort.
The Gai Waterhouse and Adrian Bott-trained Invincible Star was picked up for $200,000 and is next in line at $7 following his dominant debut victory.
You don’t always have to pay a fortune for a smart type, and former jockey turned trainer Chris Munce, has $28,000 purchase Ours To Keep on the third line of betting following a super-impressive 4.3-length victory over 1050m at Doomben.
Peter and Paul Snowden’s Breeders Plate (1000m) winner Khan is also a $13 chance, as is another of Munce’s youngsters, Champ Elect.
