Trainer Alan Scorse and Magicalease prove tough team to beat on comeback trail

TOUGH TEAM: Magicalease and popular Newcastle horseman Alan Scorse on Thursday at the trainer’s Adamstown stable. Magicalease was a $10 chance with TAB Fixed Odds for Saturday. Picture: Marina NeilNewcastle trainer Alan “Groovy” Scorse has a new lease of life on his road backfrom cancer, and a fellowfighter from his stable is proving the perfect tonic.

Magicalease, a four-year-old gelding, has three consecutive wins after15 months out of racing with a career-threatening tendon injury. He takes his comeback to Randwick on Saturday in a benchmark 84 handicap (1600 metres).

“We’re very happy with him and, touch wood, his legs are holding up. We just continue on.

“It’s a big step up for him but he needs to be on a big track and he needs a mile, so here we are.

“He drops five kilos at the weights, so that will help him taking on the stronger horses but he’s got the ability to handle that classand that’s where he’ll end up. Whether he’s ready for them straight away, we don’t know.

“We’ve got to take on a stronger grade at some point, so we may as well do it while he’s going well.”

Magicalease is coming off a fighting, photo-finish win over Spring Creek Star at Newcastle on December 3. He beat the same horse narrowly three weeks earlier at the track but carted two extra kilograms the second time around.

“Robert said he’ll never win by a long way, he just does enough to win and that’s it,” Scorse said.

“It was hisbest win so far.He was up in weight and he toughed it out. He wasoff the bita long way outand Robert said he’s looking for the 1600.”

I think it helps him racing at the provincials. He’s probably a city horse class and speed wise but being able to race here

seven starts, four starts, 15 months, like starting over again and he’s still learning about racing
