John Sargent unveiled the filly he hopes can headline his Golden Slipper assault on Saturday but it will be the Randwick trainer’s top Magic Millions 2YO Classic contender that draws his focus during the week.
Sargent is targeting the $2 million feature with promising colt Readily Availabull and believes his two-year-old can be a contender on the Gold Coast on January 16.
Readily Availabull hasn’t raced since his impressive debut victory in the $250,000 Magic Millions 2YO Clockwise Classic at Ballarat in November.
The Bull Point colt came from last on the turn before surging over the top of his rivals in the Victorian feature.
Sargent, whose talented first start Four Moves Head was a strong winner at Randwick on Saturday, gave Readily Availabull some time to freshen up after the win and the colt has continued to impress his trainer.

Readily Availabull is an $18 chance with TAB.com.au for the Magic Millions 2YO Classic.
“He is ready to go,” Sargent said.
“He will trial here during the week and Michael Dee will ride him in the Magic Millions.”
Sargent won’t travel up to the Magic Millions himself for the race with current border restrictions preventing the trainer from crossing the border into Queensland without a mandatory 14-day quarantine stint.
He will have plenty of talent to keep him busy in Sydney though, including Four Moves Ahead, which made the perfect start to her career on the Kensington track.
Sargent confirmed he will now target the Group 3 Widden Stakes on January 30.
Four Moves Ahead was tightened from $34 to $17 with TAB.com.au for the Golden Slipper following her debut victory.
