Dear Demi now or never to qualfy for MM

The 2006 Magic Millions Classic winning trainer Clarry Conners has turned to blinkers first time in a attempt to qualify Dear Demi for this year’s race via the Warwick Farm 100 Club Plate (1000m) in Sydney today.

Dear Demi, sits 22nd of the Classic order of entry with 16 horses and five emergencies to make next Saturday’s $2m two-year-old feature.

With $23,000 prizemoney in the bank, a win today would qualify the daughter of Dehere while a second placing with a $13,200 boost would promote her to 15th in the order and with a good hope provided others don’t jump her.

Conners believes Dear Demi’s optimum distance is 1400m to 1600m and is relying on blinkers to sharpen her attitude to win.

“It (the 1000m) is possibly a bit short for her but I’ve put the blinkers on to fire her up a bit early,” Conners said.

“I don’t usually like blinkers with young horses but she looks around a bit and I think it will switch her on a bit more.”

Dear Demi finished fourth in the Gimcrack Stakes (1000m) behind Hussousa before resuming from a let-up when third in the Wyong Magic Millions (1100m) behind Hoss Amour on December 22.

“I think she’s a pretty classy filly but the distance is probably a bit short for her and even the Magic Millions (over 1200m) might even be a bit short,” Conners said.

“But you’ve got no chance if you’re not in the race.

“I think she’ll be a lovely filly next preparation over 1400m and 1600m.”

Dear Demi is on the second line of TAB Sportsbet betting for Saturday’s race at $4.60 behind the Gai Waterhouse-trained debutant Raceway at $2.

The More Than Ready-Claws (by Flying Spur) colt won a trial at Randwick on December 23 and will be ridden by Nash Rawiller.

Raceday is bred on the same lines as 2008 Golden Slipper winner Sebring.

Dear Demi is currently a $21 chance for the Magic Millions with TAB Sportsbet.

Conners is also hoping three-year-old filly Bright Heart will be on the same float to the Gold Coast early next week.

It is in a same situation to Dear Demi needing to win the Vili’s Bakery Handicap (1400m) at Warwick Farm today to guarantee a start for the Magic Millions Guineas (1400m).

She is presently a $51 chance for Guineas but is shorter for today’s event at $7 in an open race.

The favourite is Pillory at $4.80.

“It looks a lovely race for her (Bright Heart),” Conners said.

“I think it’s a winnable race against her own age and sex and the distance should suit.”

Conners won the 2006 Magic Millions Classic with Mirror Mirror.
