Robert Heathcote thinks Magic In Motion is a genuine carnival prospect but wants to wait until the autumn to test his theory.

Magic In Motion performed creditably in black-type company during the winter carnival but Heathcote is unlikely to rush her interstate if she wins at Doomben on Saturday.

“She’s potentially worthy of a trip away but I’m a big believer that they’ve got to prove they’re credentials at home before they go away,” Heathcote said.

“Her performances during the winter carnival were exciting and I think they showed she’s stakes class-bound but I’d like her to win two or three here first.

“While there are races in our own backyard to be won I’m happy to keep her at home but I think she’s a Sydney autumn carnival-type.”

Heathcote has always had a high opinion of Magic In Motion and wasn’t afraid to target the three-year-old fillies black-type events during the winter carnival coming off two Ipswich midweek wins.

“To do what she did last prep was super,” he said.

“I was behind the eight ball from her very first run. She ran third-up in the Doomben Roses and finished fourth after looking the winner at the furlong.”

Magic In Motion ended her winter campaign with a creditable fifth to Gondokoro in the Group One Queensland Oaks after drawing the outside alley in the 17-horse field.

The mare will be ridden by in-form apprentice Anthony Allen in the Ormiston Old College Handicap (1350m) and will carry only 53kg under the set weights scale.

Heathcote rated her win in a Doomben barrier trial on September 3 on a par with stable spearheads Buffering and Solzhenitsyn on the same day.

“She trialled magnificently and with Anthony’s claim she gets in well in this race,” he said.

“If there is a chink in her armour first-up it’s the fact she’s only had the one trial.”
