Majestic's win earns invite

EMERGING speedster Majestic Player looks set to become the second Harness Jewels contestant for the giant Yabby Dams operation.

Trainer Anton Golino took Dance Craze across to Cambridge for last year’s 4YO Jewels trot and would’ve gone close to winning with any luck.

She’s since returned home, gone to another level with wins in the Great Southern Star and other features and shown the NZ trip was the making of her.

Maybe Golino thinks it could be the same with Majestic Player, who made it 13 wins from just 25 starts when he won untouched in a 1min54.8sec mile at Menangle last night.

Jewels recruiter Darrin Williams made it clear Majestic Player and Drop The Hammer – who ran fourth last night – were racing against each other for the Jewels invite.

Majestic Player’s gate speed is lethal and he used it to lead and win as he liked last night.

That gate speed will be huge with a kind draw at Addington on June 1.

Golino said a Jewels trip was “very likely as long as he comes through this well.”
