Inglis Millennium 2YO Preview

A multi-million dollar race for the babies - the $2m Inglis Millennium at Randwick on Saturday and our form man Ric Chapman looks at every runner.

1. Odinson (4)

echo J: D McMonagle T: C Maher

Got back early but once on his right leg, he charged late to narrowly claim the $500k Inglis Nursery over 1000m in December. This is no harder and being 100m longer he looks very well served. The experience this way of going will hold him in great stead too. As for the jock, he’s an Irishman now based in Melbourne and he has a tremendous record on horses who get back and run on.

2. Rue De Royale (10)

Best Bet
echo J: C Schofield T: Tony & C Mcevoy

This bloke may be extremely smart. Resumes from a spell here. Last prep was unlucky and maybe should have won the $1million Golden Gift when running 2nd behind the Slipper fav Shangri La Express. He was held up several times in the straight. He rockets home and is worth having something on.

3. Beer Baron (1)

echo J: T Berry T: N Osborne

At huge odds on debut, hit the front with 100m to go and was gunned down right on the wire when 2nd n the $500k Inglis Nursery by Odinson. Has since spelled and trialled, winning at Goulburn. Has a load of talent and will be in this for a very long way.

4. Fully Lit (17)

echo J: R Bayliss T: G Waterhouse & A Bott

Is very fast but will need to be as he’s drawn horribly. Saying that, he led all the way on debut and beat a strong field, kicking clear over the last 200m. Is ready to jump and run here and no surprise to see him lead throughout.

5. Zestiman (12)

echo J: B Melham T: B, W & J Hayes

An awkward draw here may be a problem but couldn’t have been much more impressive when sitting just off the speed at Flemington on debut then kicking home hard to narrowly win over 1000m. This is harder both in terms of opposition and the fact he is now in Sydney but clearly has taelnt.

6. Cerons (13)

echo J: M Bell T: B Cavanough

Is an interesting runner. Again, draw is awkward but he went to Flemington on debut from his Scone base, drew the bad part of the track and at $61 led until the final 75m when 2nd at stakes level. Since spelled. Obviously has a ton of ability and may well be right in this.

7. Trunk (5)

echo J: T Clark T: G Waterhouse & A Bott

Raced only once when led until the final 100m and strong 2nd at debut over this trip. Trialled well behind subsequent winner Prost recently. This is hard because there is a lot of pace, particularly by his stablemate Fully Lit but may be on the fence and that gives him a shot.

8. Thundering Soul (11)

echo J: D Gibbons T: K Lees

Strong colt who was perfectly ridden when sitting off the pace before coming hard late to score at Scone on debut over 900m. This is many lengths harder and may struggle late.

9. El Morzillo (7)

echo J: Z Lloyd T: K Schweida

Already is a stakes placed, winning filly who knows how to run on. Appreciated the long straight at the Sunny Coast in winning in fast time over 1000m. This seems harder but has been backed so respect that.

10. Nymphadora (14)

Best Value
echo J: T Sherry T: S O'Halloran

Interesting. Started at $101 last start in the $500k Inglis Nursery and was last of 13 turning for home but when she got to the outside she rocketed home to finish 3rd. It was by far the best run on the race. Was just on a length behind Odinson that day and this is 100m longer. Has trialled very soundly since. From this gate probably drops back and should be running on.

11. Express Yo'Self (18)

echo J: K Mcevoy T: Amy & A Yargi

Raced twice thus far and has placed in both starts, including at stakes level and does seem to be improving with racing. To counter that is drawn poorly and racing in Sydney for the first time. May pay to just watch her go around but she does have ability.

12. Rag Queen (6)

echo J: J Collett T: D Payne

One start for one win and it was an impressive winning maiden at Canterbury. Was a mile back on the bend and weaved between runners to overhaul the weakening leaders. This is much harder but she clearly can finish a race off. Place.

echo J: A Morgan T: K Buchanan

Was given a lot of weight allowance on debut in a much easier race but duly came hard late to win over 900m in good time at Newcastle. Tougher here and may struggle late.

14. Art's Alive (15)

echo J: R Jones T: B Widdup

Has talent but this is hard and is still a maiden after two starts, latest when well beaten by Shangri La Express in the Golden Gift. Was 2nd in a tough trial the other day but not expected to win this.

15. Bella Khadijah (8)

echo J: S Clipperton T: B Widdup

Has talent. Made good ground late when 3rd on debut in the city behind the very smart Switzerland. This is 100m further and she should be a lot more experienced, but to counter that, this is a strong field. Place show.
