Dinnigan aimed at Magic Millions

Dinnigan has earned a shot at a Magic Millions race, but co-trainers Adrian Bott and Gai Waterhouse have yet to decide which one she will contest.

Bott says the stable was impressed with Dinnigan's fighting second place at Group 3 level at Doomben last Saturday which earned her a shot at a Magic Millions race.

It's a little frustrating that she hasn't got the win as yet, but she's certainly racing well.

Dinnigan was only narrowly beaten in the Magic Millions Slipper (1100m) at Wyong in December, before being sent to the spelling paddock.

She was then narrowly beaten in maiden class over 1200m at Canterbury on 15th December, before leading around the turn when runner-up to Pierata in Saturday's Group 3 Vo Rogue Plate over 1350m.

"It was a strong run and we've always felt she was capable of running like that, we've always felt she had the potential," Bott said. "It's a little frustrating that she hasn't got the win as yet, but she's certainly racing well."

Meanwhile, looking ahead, Bott said the 1400m of the Guineas looks ideal as the third run this campaign.

"She fought on strongly after absorbing a fair bit of pressure and under the circumstances she was entitled to struggle late, but to her credit she stuck on strongly," Bott added.

Dinnigan is 1000.00 to win the Magic Millions 3YO Guineas, with Pierata priced at 2.90 and Shogun Sun 21.00.
