Pepperano showed a good turn of foot to down the Stuart Kendrick trained Patronising and the hot pot Frequendly in the $65,000 Capture The Feeling QTIS two year old Handicap (1110m) and trainer Liam Birchley immediately booked in a start in the $2m Jeep Magic Millions 2yo Classic (1200m) at the Gold Coast on January 10.

“She will only improve as the distances get longer and she gets a bit more experience,” Munce said.

Munce won his first Magic Millions 2yo Classic way back in 1989 when he was an apprentice on the Eric Kirwan trained Sunblazer.

His other two successes were for the Gai Waterhouse stable with Excellerator in 2001 and Dance Hero in 2004.

While Munce is no stranger to the winner’s stall on Magic Millions Day, Birchley is still searching for his first win in the glamour Gold Coast two year old race.

The Eagle Farm trainer is yet to finalize Pepperano’s Magic Millions lead up program and will wait and see how the Court Command filly pulls up after her debut win before picking out her race.

“We will be making the Magic Millions the priority. We have just got to pick our way into that race now,” Birchley said.

“There is no better way to go into the Magic Millions than on your terms, rather than be forced to earn prizemoney and be forced to run in races you don’t want to run in.

“She’s always shown us good ability but I won’t know where we’ll go with her until I see how she pulls up.”

“She’s pretty close to qualifying for the Millions now.”

“I’ve had plenty of goes. I’’ve just got to hope one day we can hit the line first in it.

Trainer Les Ross said that he would push on with a Magic Millions 2yo Classic start with Frequendly who had to carry 58kgs when a disappointing third at Doomben as the odds on favourite.

“She had a bit of a runny nose after the race but overall she was a tad disappointing,” Ross said after Saturday’s race.

“She also had a big weight and they say weight will stop a train.

“I haven’t dropped off with her as far as the Magic Millions is concerned and it was a very hot day.”

    You really make it appear so easy along with your presentation but I in finding this topic to be actually something that I believe I might by no means understand. It seems too complicated and extremely huge for me. I am taking a look forward to your subsequent submit, I will try to get the hold of it!
