Jockey Matthew Palmer is confident that Lucky Hussler can take out the $1 million Magic Millions 3YO Guineas at the Gold Coast tomorrow January 12, 2013.
Palmer feels that Lucky Hussler’s most recent win proved his class.
The three-year-old won the Group 3 Vo Rogue Plate ahead of red hot favourite Sizzling, who will also run in tomorrow’s Magic Millions 3YO Guineas.
“Winning the Vo Rogue proved he’s up to this level and, if anything, he’s taken a step forward in his trackwork and attitude since that race,” Palmer said.
“He’s still a young horse who’s developing and learning but he did everything right at Doomben and was good enough to beat Sizzling.”
Lucky Hussler is currently paying odds of $15 to win the 2013 Magic Millions 3YO Guineas, with the gelding drawing reasonably wide in barrier 17 for the race.
However, Palmer is not fazed by his wide barrier draw.
“He’ll come into 13 if the emergencies don’t run which isn’t such a bad result and you get a good run down the back straight from the 1400-metre start,” Palmer said.
“I know the track well, I know the horse well so I’ll be looking to give him an easy run somewhere just off the speed.”
Lucky Hussler has won three of his six career starts and has earned more than $145,000 in prize money during his short career.
