Candice Bass-Robinson-trained unbeaten filly Magical Wonderland looked a superstar in the making when storming home despite the dual impediments of 61kg and plenty of trouble in the running at Durbanville recently.

She steps up to Graded company and beyond sprint distances for the first time in the Grade 2 Western Cape Fillies Championship on Saturday, but has Grade 1 winner written all over her and is expected to remain undefeated come 5.20pm on Saturday.

“She is highly talented, doing very well, and will be a big runner,” was the bullish comment from her usually cautious conditioner, who also confirmed that, if she handles the trip, this daughter of What A Winter will be aimed at the Grade 1 WSB Fillies Guineas.

Dennis Drier’s star Lady In Black is also yet to taste defeat, and won the Grade 1 Thekwini Stakes in good style at the end of July. She receives a 2kg penalty in this event due to that win, and jumps from a very wide gate as she negotiates a left-handed turn for the first time. Cream always rises to the top, but she may struggle to get the better of the Bass-Robinson-trained filly on this occasion, given all of those negatives.
