Scandiva is well on her way to a start in the Golden Slipper next weekend after winning the Group 2 Magic Night Stakes at Rosehill Gardens Racecourse today.

The two-old won the race by a nose ahead of Sharhad, who placed a gallant second, and Major Conquest, who passed the post in a tight contest for third.

Scandiva, who was paying odds of $7 when the gates opened, has now won two of her four race starts and has earned more than $125,000 in prize money during her career.

Trainer Anthony Cummings could not hide his excitement following the running of today’s Magic Night Stakes, however, is yet to make a final decision over whether he would run Scandiva in the $3.5 million Golden Slipper in seven days time.

“She’s had a fairly tight racing schedule (this preparation),” said Cummings.

Cummings admitted that the temptation of the Golden Slipper would likely win him over in the end.

“I found it impossible (to refuse) in the past,” he said.

“To work as hard as she did out of the gates and then finish off speaks well of her.

“She’s got form around Villa Verde.. and i think that’s the best form so far.

“I’m hoping she takes the next step.

“Today’s a very good day and a great result.”

The trainer is not scared by the prospect of facing Golden Slipper favourite Overreach should he elect to run Scandiva.

“I think these fillies are coming on and improving while Overreach reached a very high standard very quickly,” he said.

Jockey Peter Robl was aboard Scandiva for her Magic Night Stakes win.

“She’s been a nice filly and she keeps improving,” Robl said.

“She’s going to win better class races.

“She seemed to come through it (well). She’s a pretty tough sort of filly.”

It was a different story for Greytfilly, who missed the start by a massive six lengths and finished an unlucky 11th in the race.

    The next time I read a blog, I hope which it doesnt disappoint me up to this blog. I mean, I know it was my option to read, but I personally thought youd have something fascinating to state. All I hear is often a handful of whining about something that you could fix if you werent too busy interested in attention.
