Miss Gem gets chance at black-type

Gold Coast trainer Michael Costa has seized the opportunity to chase black-type with Miss Gem (Smart Missile) despite the filly taking a jump in class at Doomben. Costa has accepted with Miss Gem and Supergiant (Red Giant) in the Doomben Guineas (Listed, 1600m) tomorrow. Miss Gem has a win and four placings from seven starts to date and Costa believes the 1600-metre trip will suit her. “It is vital to get some black-type for fillies and you have to give them a chance,” Costa said. “The winter black-type races have been cut back and this is one of her few chances to get black-type this winter.”
