Real Good’s form behind Magic Millions winner Le Chef and a pleasing workout in blinkers have boosted trainer Trevor Miller’s confidence ahead of the two-year-old’s next start at the Sunshine Coast.

Runner-up at his two starts including a midweek Gold Coast race won by Le Chef, Real Good missed a run in last Saturday’s $2 million Magic Millions Classic as the third emergency.

A week later he runs the $150,000 Racing Minister’s 2YO Classic (1200m) at the Sunshine Coast.

Miller believes he should have at least finished on terms with Le Chef when they met.

“He dropped the bit at about the 600 metres,” Miller said.

“But he got going again and kept chasing. Real Good was taking ground off Le Chef at the finish.”

“I was tempted to add blinkers to him before the Gold Coast run and when his jockey Michael Cahill came back to scale he said Real Good needed them now.

“We worked him in blinkers on Tuesday morning and he went really well.

“Like many of the Real Saga breed he looks to have improved with blinkers on.”

Miller said he had obviously been buoyed by Le Chef’s win in the Magic Millions Classic.

“Le Chef is obviously a very good horse and we showed we are not far off him,” he said, adding that in hindsight missing the Magic Millions could be a blessing in disguise.

“The Gold Coast race was only seven days before the Magic Millions and he has now had an extra week off,” Miller said.

“He has done very well and I would be disappointed if he didn’t race well.”

The Racing Minister’s Classic carries two bonus payments from the QTIS scheme and Magic Millions, which could boost the winner’s overall prize money from the race to $220,000.

“Real Good isn’t paid up for QTIS but he is eligible for the Magic Millions bonus of $100,000 so the prize money is still really good,” Miller said.

The trainer who has won about 800 races at the Sunshine Coast track, admits he has been close to retiring.

“But getting a horse like Real Good makes getting out of bed worth while,” he said.
