Assail Storms to Top Of 2013 Magic Millions Classic Betting Market

A dominant performance at Wyong yesterday has seen exciting filly Assail installed as the clear favourite for next month’s $2 million 2013 Magic Millions Classic (1200m) at the Gold Coast.

In the second start of her career, the Clarry Connors-trained youngster assumed the lead early in the 2012 Wyong Magic Millions Classic (1100m) and that is where she stayed as she put paid to her rivals by three lengths in the $200,000 event.

The daughter of Charge Forward is now the $5.50 top elect at for the Gold Coast feature, with Chris Waller’s impressive debut winner Champagne Cath the next best at $10.

Assail was rated a $26 chance prior to yesterday’s win but Connors required convincing to even let her run after she received an unfavourable barrier 12 draw.

“I wasn’t keen on running but [jockey] Peter [Robl] said, ‘run her she’ll still win’,” Connors said.

Jockey Peter Robl was thrilled with her performance and is looking forward to riding her in the main event in January.

“I’ll be back form suspension a week before the Gold Coast…really looking forward to that.

“She’ll put paid to them up there as well.”

Occupying the third line of the Magic Millions Classic betting market are Clevadude and Whittington ($11) but the latter is unlikely to line up.

The Rick Hore-Lacy-trained Clevadude shot into contention over the weekend when dominating his rivals by 3 1/2 lengths to claim a maiden at Cranbourne.

Another debut winner from the weekend to press Magic Millions claims was Queensland colt Sir Luminar who led from start to finish in the Listed Phelan Ready Stakes (1000m) at Eagle Farm and in doing so moved to $14 in Magic Millions betting.

Others towards the top end of the Magic Millions market include Robert Smerdon-trained filly Calcatta ($15), Kelso Wood’s Real Surreal ($15), Certitude ($16) and unbeaten Queensland filly Missy Longstocking ($18).
