Magic Circle Set For Cup Challenge

Magic Circle Set For Cup Challenge

Trainer Ian Williams believes Magic Circle can challenge in the major up races next term, despite his recent issues in Australia. The six-year-old was expected to put in a big performance in the Melbourne Cup after a successful spring on home soil.

 

Williams was pleased with preparations heading into the Australian showpiece but his charge could only manage 16th place. “He had a great preparation, the rain arrived – and we were very happy. Everything was in our favour, but the horse bled – which was not ideal and it affected his performance quite badly,” Williams said.

 

Despite his issues Down Under, Williams believes Magic Circle can still come back fighting as a cup horse in 2019.
He added: “I don’t see why he won’t be a Cup horse next year. We will give him a shot next season, and he is young enough to be a force in those Cup races.”
