After some near misses, trainer Gerald Ryan believes Perignon may be the horse to give him a win in the rich Magic Millions Classic.

The Snitzel filly overcame a wide barrier in the 2YO Plate (1200m) at Canterbury on Saturday to record her first win at her second start.



Perignon started the $3.60 favourite based on her eye-catching fourth on debut at Wyong last Thursday week.

She went to the line powerfully after getting back early, beating Look To The Stars ($8.50) by a neck with the same margin to Racy ($9) who is also heading to the $2 million Magic Millions (1200m) in two weeks.

“I haven’t had much luck in the Magic Millions. I came third with Snitzel and second with Danbird and that’s as close as I’ve got,” Ryan said.

“She is a horse who gets back which I don’t think will be a problem at the Gold Coast because there is always pressure on.

“As long as she stays together and does well, and I see no reason why she won’t, she will go there.”

Ryan paid $350,000 for the filly and was almost left with the bill until long-time client Damion Flower stepped in.

“I bought her on spec and had her sold but the bloke went to America and bought a boat instead,” Ryan said.

That may prove to be a costly decision with Ryan confident Perignon will handle the Gold Coast track after her experiences on the tight circuits at Wyong and Canterbury.

“She had never been to Wyong before she raced and she had never been to Canterbury before today,” he said.

“I don’t think the Gold Coast will bother her.”

The trip up the Hume Highway was an expensive one for Melbourne colt Mr Humphries who dumped Blake Shinn in the mounting yard and hurdled the enclosure fence.

He was eventually captured and escaped unscathed but will now struggle to make the Magic Millions field with prize money just shy of $6,000.
