18/10/2019 Miami Bound to take on the boys in Classic

Danny O'Brien is happy to race VRC Oaks favourite Miami Bound (Reliable Man) against the colts and geldings in the Caulfield Classic (Gr 3, 2000m) and the trainer is expecting the filly to relish racing over the distance for the first time. Miami Bound is the only filly in the $350,000 race for three year-olds, with O'Brien opting to run her in that event over the $200,000 Ethereal Stakes for three-year-old fillies. Miami Bound won her first two starts this preparation at Bendigo before finishing third when $2.90 favourite in the Edward Manifold Stakes at Flemington. "We probably got it a bit wrong the other day, tactically," O'Brien said. "We asked her to be closer than she probably appreciates because she drew in and the pattern was a bit on-speed. We made her do it early which left her a bit soft late.”

In early betting markets Miami Bound is the $2.80 favourite. For Best Odds Get your Ladbrokes betting account
