Markets for next month’s highly anticipated 2013 Magic Millions 2YO Classic on the Gold Coast have been updated following last weekend’s racing with Champagne Cath remaining at the top of the markets.
Held on January 12, the $2 million Magic Millions Gold Coast Classic (1200m) is the richest race of the summer season down under and as always it is shaping up as a hotly contested affair by the most promising young Magic Millions graduates.
Chris Waller’s impressive debut winner Champagne Cath has retained her favouritism in the Magic Millions Classic betting markets despite not having raced over the weekend.
The Street Sense filly enjoyed a huge three and a half length victory at her first trip to the races at Rosehill on December 8 taking out a 1200m handicap and the bookies think that is the right kind of form heading towards next year’s feature.
She has eased out slightly in the markets however from $9 to $10.
When Magic Millions Classic odds were first released Gai Waterhouse’s impressive Listed NSW Thoroughbred Breeders Plate winner Whittington was the $11 second pick but they now occupy that second line of betting with another runner, Clevadude.
The Rick Hore-Lacy-trained Bel Esprit gelding Clevadude had their MM Classic price slashed after their successful debut at Cranbourne on Saturday where they got the better of a decent field carrying 58kg to a big three and a half length win over 1000m.
Robert Smerdon’s Tale Of The Cat filly Calcatta, a Moonee Valley winner on November 30 who runs in the Wyong Magic Millions Classic this Thursday, has then eased out form $13 to $14 as has Waterhouse’s Not A Single Doubt filly Certitude who is also engaged for Wyong.
Liam Birchely’s undefeated Brisbane filly Miss Longstocking was one of the market drifters out form $14 to $18 after the suspect form surrounding her slow win in the Listed Calaway Gal Stakes (1000m) at Eagle Farm on Saturday which was the daughter of Sequal’s third win from as many career starts.
Other notable easers include the Tim Martin-trained Let’s Frolic ($17 out to $21) who ran second to the in-form Regimental Pride in the Rosehill Gardens Handicap on Saturday and Geelong galloper Purrific ($18 out to $21) who hasn’t raced since their second in the Merson Cooper Stakes at Sandown on November 17.
Kelso Wood’s Real Saga filly Real Surreal meanwhile remains steady at $15 having won her sole race start to date at her home track at Eagle Farm back in late November.
There were also a number of big market movers that have come right in in their price to take out the Gold Coast feature, the most notable of which was the Michael Nolan-trained Toowoomba horse Sir Luminar ($16) who scored a lightning fast win in the Listed Phelan Ready Stakes (1000m) in Brisbane on the weekend taking out the feature in a sharp 57.14 seconds.
