Sizzling Returns to Top of Magic Millions Classic Odds 2012

Following the release of the final field, the Kelso Wood-trained Sizzling has returned to the top of the 2012 Magic Millions Classic odds ahead of the Gold Coast clash this Saturday.


Sizzling has returned to the top of the 2012 Magic Millions Classic odds

A son of beaten 2005 Magic Millions Classic favourite Snitzel, the nicely bred Sizzling was the early top-elect to atone for their sire’s defeat and take out the $2 million feature this year after a blistering six length win on debut at Eagle Farm back in November.

They retained their favouritism after a close second to fellow MM Classic hope Noogoora Burr in the Listed Phelan Ready Stakes (1100m) at the same track in mid-December, but was knocked off their perch after finishing one and a half lengths away second to Driefontein in the Group 3 BJ McLachlan Stakes (1200m) at Doomben last-start on New Year’s Eve.

The 16-starter five-emergency 2012 Magic Millions 2YO Classic field was released by Racing Queensland earlier today, Gai Waterhouse’s unbeaten filly Driefontein leading the odds at Luxbet for the 1200 metre sprint immediately after the updated markets were released.

Big money bets rolling in for Sizzling, however, has seen the two top spots reversed.

Driefontein has eased out from $3.60 to $3.70 through Luxbet while Sizzling has enjoyed lots of support firming in from $3.80 to $3.60, now even shorter in the markets at a quote of $3.50.

With the noisy support of race jockey Chris Munce, and the confidence of their trainer Wood, Sizzling is sure to be the consistent Magic Millions Classic betting market firmer leading into Saturday’s showdown.

Wood confirmed his decision not to add blinkers to Sizzling’s gear for Saturday, saying that with a good gate the horse had the ability and tactical speed to win without them.

“I did try winkers on him at trackwork but he was inclined to go a bit hard,” Wood explained.

“That would have been the danger with blinkers as well; it might have fired him up too much.

“The colt is going so well I didn’t really want to change anything.

“He races truly between horses so the blinkers weren’t something to help him around other horses.

“The only issue is making sure he doesn’t get a mile back and have an impossible task to catch the leaders.

“But I believe with a good barrier…he is going to take some holding out.”

There has also been a slight tickle in the odds for Liam Birchley’s Snippetson filly Snipzu, third in the Calaway Gal Stakes and BJ Mclachlan Stakes at her two most recent runs, who has been backed in from $21 to $19 over the past few hours at Luxbet, and Chris Waller’s easy Rosehill trial winner last Friday Fundido in from $16 to $15.
