Aidan OBrien sensations earth and 10 furlongs may prove ideal conditions for Magical from the Qipco Champion Stakes.
The versatile filly is bidding for back-to-back wins British Champions Day, having won the Mares & Fillies race 12 months – after which she moved down all firearms to Empower at the Breeders Cup.
Magical was busy and discovered Enable a difficult nut to crack on more than 1 occasion – but victories in Irish Champion Stakes and the Tattersalls Gold Cup have witnessed her add to her Group One haul.
She finished fifth during that months the first time, Prix de lArc de Triomphe – in nine rebounds trips – which she has been from the initial two since the race last year.
OBrien said:Shes an awesome filly. She runs over excursions that are distinct – shes from her races, and all ground comes to her.
Clearly she conducted from the Arc, that wasnt that long ago. But she appears to be in good form, and we are anticipating running her.
We believe on soft ground, 10 furlongs is likely her trip. She must be quite comfortable at it on this ground anyhow.
OBrien also runs I Can Fly – agonisingly using a triumph at Dundalk, although beaten in the Queen Elizabeth II Stakes last year to show for her efforts.
We think I Will Fly might prefer the ground, explained OBrien.
Her best run came this time last year above a mile on tender ground, but shes form over a mile and a quarter also. Shes in great shape as well.
There has been lots of cash to William Haggas Addeybb this week – but switching to the internal hurdles monitor might not be in favour of their mud-lover.
Haggas stated:We are thrilled the race is about and were thrilled to be participating in Obviously we expect it rains non stop from now before the race!
Magical is a high-class filly, and hes got all to conquer her. Hes a smart horse when the floor is soft, although he has got a little to find.
We are going to the race fresh, but he will probably need to be if hes going to win.
Hes had a good prep and that he had a wonderful gallop at Newmarket a week, that will have profited him.
I would say he is a long-shot on shape, but when he gets his conditions he could encounter it.
Deirdre was a surprise winner of the Nassau Stakes at Goodwood – and also to prove was no fluke, she then seemed behind Magical in the Irish Champion Stakes.
Yoshitake Hashida, assistant trainer to Mitsuru Hashida, said:She seems in very good shape. She came whatsoever – so far, so good without any troubles.
She had been unlucky at Leopardstown, also I feel the most disappointed person was Oisin Murphy. It is a day for Oisin, because he will be verified as the winner jockey – which is excellent.
Theyve moved the race into the interior monitor, which is good. I think thats the reason we have opted to operate on Champions Day, rather than visiting the Breeders Cup or anything.
We believe shes in much better condition than she had been at (Royal) Ascot – we think she is in very top condition today.
We first met Magical at the Prince of Waless Stakes and got a little closer to her at the Irish Champion. Whereas yet another race in France has conduct, we have had a break because the Champion.
Wed prefer faster floor, but I hope she could run a fantastic race.
Having come so close in a lot of Group Ones, John Gosdens Coronet appeared destined to not win a single – but she broke her duck on her penultimate beginning in the Grand Prix de Saint-Cloud, then followed up in the Prix Jean Romanet second time outside.
Shell head after this to the paddocks – win, lose or draw.
We all waited all the time for a Group One – and now shes won 2! Said Richard Evans, that manages owners of Coronet, Denford Stud.
Its over we might have wished for – and this will be her last run.
We are just imagining. She wont mind soft earth – shes fine on soft, although she would not need it heavy.
Clearly Mr Haggas horse (Addeybb) will adore the ground, and Magical is in there, but we would only be delighted to maintain the framework – a triumph would be outstanding.
We were only a length behind the past year, and hopefully they will be close again, but that I believe Magical and Mr Haggas are both to beat – and there may be some surprise packages.
A win would be wonderful and a great way to end her racing career. Shell be new – she hasnt run since winning in France, and Magical ran from the Arc, therefore it might come soon.
The great ones do not come along often, and it was fine that the choice to remain in training was rewarded.
