Clevadude Shows Smarts Ahead of 2013 Magic Millions Classic

He went into today’s Sportingbet Plate at Moonee Valley as one of the top 2013 Magic Millions Classic chances but Clevadude is likely to be favourite when markets are adjusted following an outstanding performance.

The Rick Hore-Lacy-trained galloper bounded out of the gates and was barely asked for an effort from Craig Newitt as he crusied to a comfortable four-length win ahead of The Yowie and Gold Hoffa.

The dominant display comes on the back of his debut two weeks ago where he rocketed into Magic Millions calculations with a 3 1/2 length win on debut at Cranbourne.

Hore-Lacy has always had the Magic Millions in the sights of the Bel Esprit gelding and is predicting he will tough to beat in the Gold Coast feature on January 12.

“There’ll be plenty of opposition but this bloke will take some beating particularly if he’s lucky enough to draw a gate,” Hore-Lacy said.

“He’s got the perfect temperament for a racehorse. He looks the real deal doesn’t he.”

Jockey Craig Newitt has spent time aboard the exciting juvenile in trackwork and was pleased to see him jump cleanly after he’d shown tardiness in the past.

“He’s always been a bit tardy out of the gates but today he hit the ground running,” Newitt said.

The top Victorian jockey gave Clevadude a glowing endorsement heading towards the Magic Millions suggesting he still “has an extra gear” to unlock.
