Kavanagh Thunders into 2012 Magic Millions Classic Betting

She’s nicely bred, comes off a four length win last start and has the right gate but still the Mark Kavanagh-trained Alezan Thunder is at juicy odds in the latest Magic Millions Classic 2012 betting markets.

Mark Kavanagh is confident Alezan Thunder will run a nice race in the 2012 Magic Millions Classic on Saturday

Flemington-based Kavanagh has warned punters not to write off his visiting Victorian filly, Written Tycoon two-year-old Alezan Thunder out for her third career win from four starts when she takes her spot in the $2 million Gold Coast Magic Millions 2YO Classic (1200m) on Saturday.

After a three length win on debut at Morphettville back in early October, Alezan Thunder stepped up to stakes company next start and finished a brave third to Applegate in the Listed Emirates Airline Plate (1000m) at Flemington on Melbourne Cup Day.

At her most recent run she hit Sandown Hillside on Christmas Eve and romped home to win by four lengths in the Swettenham Stud Plate (900m).

While as yet untested over further than 1000 metres, Alezan Thunder is still considered by Kavanagh as a genuine chance to win the 2012 Magic Millions Classic after she lead all the way last start and then drew nicely mid-field in barrier nine for Saturday.

“These Sydney horses must be good because everyone is talking about them,” Kavanagh said.

“It is always hard to line up the form but we are the only one from Melbourne and everything seems to be discounting us.

“We’re here and we’re not kidding.”

Alezan Thunder had her first look at the Gold Coast track on Tuesday morning and pleased Kavanagh with the way she handled the circuit.

“She has done really well, she has done extra well since she got her,” Kavanagh said with confidence.

“She worked very nicely…and we are very happy with the way things are right now.

“She had a bit of a look and did it really well.

“Everything is fine with her.”

Due to be ridden by Michael Rodd, who won the MM Classic on Regimental Gal back in 2001, Alezan Thunder currently pays $41 in the Luxbet odds.

Betting on the Classic this year is led by Gai Waterhouse’s unbeaten Fastnet Rock filly Driefontein ($3.20) and Kelso Wood’s speedy Brisbanite Sizzling ($3.50), the top fancied duo tightening their grip on the markets after drawing barriers three and six respectively.
