Tony McEvoy will walk the Gold Coast track before deciding whether Grand Scholar runs on Saturday

Trainer Tony McEvoy will walk the Gold Coast track on Thursday morning as part of decision-making process on whether his filly Grand Scholar will run on Saturday.

Grand Scholar has accepted for the $250,000 Magic Millions Rising Stars Fillies and Mares at the Gold Coast.

It is pencilled in as a chance for her to qualify for the $2 million Magic Millions 3YO Guineas on Saturday week.

However, she drew barrier 16 which has left McEvoy in a quandary.

“I scratched her last week when she drew barrier 23. Now she has barrier 16,” McEvoy said.

“I am not keen to give her a gut-buster a week before a big race. But I might not have any choice.”

Grand Scholar is 28th in the order of entry for the Guineas with $112,000 in prize money but several horses above her are unlikely to accept.

“I want to have a really good look at the order of entry and see our chances of a start without running Saturday,” McEvoy said.

“And I also want to walk the track when I get up there on Thursday.

“Another alternative is to look at our chances of getting a run in the fillies and mares race on Millions day.”
