Sizzling Still 2013 Magic Millions Guineas Betting Favourite

An upset defeat in the Vo Rouge Plate has not been enough to see the bookies take any chances with Queensland colt Sizzling who remains a clear favourite to win the $1 million 2013 Magic Millions Guineas (1400m) on January 12.


Sizzling remains a short-priced favourite for the Magic Millions Guineas

The Kelso Wood-trained three-year-old was a $1.60 favourite when he failed to get over the top of Lucky Hussler but is still a $3.50 chance at to win Saturday week’s Gold Coast feature.

Speaking after Sizzling’s Vo Rogue Plate loss, jockey Chris Munce suggested he was unable to settle like had when victorious in the past.

“Normally he settles nice and relaxed but he really got up on the bridle and wanted to get going which isn’t like him,” Munce said.

“When he got the split I thought he would be able to pick up the winner but he really made hard work of it.”

Also going into the Magic Millions on the back of a loss will be second favourite Driefontein ($6) who went down in the Wyong Magic Millions 3YO Stakes after starting at “Black Caviar odds” of $1.15.

The Magic Millions Classic winner is slightly ahead of Benetta ($6.50) in the market who was a late nomination earlier this week.

At 28th in the order of entry, the Grahame Begg-trained filly is not even assured of a start in the race but bookies are taking no chances after her convincing 2 1/2 length win at Canterbury on Saturday.

No Looking Back has shortened to $9 after her first-up win in the Carrington Stakes on Tuesday while Lucky Hussler is joined by Vo Rogue Plate third placegetter Heza Jetsetter as other big firmers ($11).

Others towards the top of the Magic Millions Guineas market include She’s A Stalker ($12) and Hoss Amor ($15).
