Calliope to revive 2016 Golden Slipper hopes

Calliope can prove her Gold Slipper credentials in the Magic Night Stakes at Rosehill after missing her scheduled lead-up.

The Godolphin filly was scratched from the Reisling Stakes when she got her foot over the barrier partition.

She now runs on Saturday, a week out from the $3.5 million Golden Slipper.

Trainer John O’Shea said the filly may have been a bit fresh but he and his team had worked with her this week to ensure there was no repeat of her antics.

The race has been renamed the Bede Murray Magic Night in honour of the popular NSW South Coast trainer who lost his battle with cancer this week.

Calliope is a $26 chance for the Slipper with Blue Diamond Stakes winner Extreme Choice the dominant $2.80 favourite.
