Promising Reckless Choice is on a Magic Millions path after an easy win in the Brisbane Neurosurgery Handicap at Eagle Farm.
Reckless Choice gave apprentice Stephanie Thornton her fourth win for trainer Steve O’Dea since moving from Victoria last month.
Thornton didn’t panic when she got well back early but came with a well-timed run for Reckless Choice ($4) to score by 1-1/4 lengths to the favourite Trevelyan ($2.70).
O’Dea scratched Reckless Choice from 1400m race to run him at 1600m as a test for longer trips.
“I think he will stay and we will now look at getting him into the Magic Millions Trophy over 2200m in January,” O’Dea said.
“He has won six races now but probably will need a few more for a Millions place.”
Reckless Choice was the latest winner O’Dea has prepared for Jamie Walter’s Proven Thoroughbreds syndicate.
“They are great supporters and I would love to win another big race for them,” O’Dea said.
