Grand Slam-winning jockey-turned-trainer Chris Munce has a hand full of aces heading towards the Magic Millions in January after notching up another two-year-old winner at the Sunshine Coast on Saturday.
Munce has been a force to be reckoned with juveniles this season and produced his third individual winner after Poster Girl launched to mow down Tony Gollan’s spruik filly Barbie’s Sister in the shadows of the post.
“I think (Poster Girl) is very good, she’s a nice filly,” Munce said.
“She galloped on Monday morning and I couldn’t have been more pleased with her, I was very buoyed off that.
“I said to the boys that they’d have to be pretty good to beat her today.
“I was a bit worried when she was back that far, she had a great turn of foot and she is a bloody nice filly.”
A showdown between the trio of fillies is now looming next month in the Listed Calaway Gal (1000m) at Eagle Farm as Munce looks to plot a path to the first $3m Magic Millions 2YO Classic on January 13.
“I have to work out where I go with them all now, I will probably have to run them in the Calaway Gal or something I suppose,” Munce said, adding that he has Boomroux in the male division.
Munce had Miss Coota in the Magic Millions earlier this year after winning her first two starts however was struck down by barrier 13 on the day.
A big decision looms for Irish hoop Robbie Dolan, who has become one of Munce’s go-to jockeys.
Dolan has been in the saddle for each of Devine Force’s victories, and was in the hot seat again on Saturday aboard Poster Girl.
