Hugh Bowman to Ride Sir Luminar in 2013 Magic Millions Classic

Top Sydney jockey Hugh Bowman will ride Queensland colt Sir Luminar in Saturday week’s $2 million 2013 Magic Millions Classic (1200m) at the Gold Coast.

In fact, Bowman’s decision to stick with the Michael Nolan-trained youngster is what swayed the Toowoomba trainer to push on to the Magic Millions following a sixth-place effort at Doomben on Saturday.

Bowman had already been booked to ride but Nolan feared he would try and jump off after the big chestnut colt was beaten seven lengths after being forced to work hard early from a wide barrier.

But Bowman’s manager contacted Nolan to confirm Bowman is keen to partner the $26 chance in the lucrative juvenile race.

“That was what swayed our decision to press on to the Millions,” Nolan told AAP.

Sir Luminar’s price drifted considerably following the BJ McLachlan Stakes with his previous start shooting him into Magic Millions contention when he led from start to finish to win the Phelan Ready Stakes.

Also pushing on the Magic Millions despite a poor BJ McLachlan Stakes showing is I’m Too Sexy who earned her spot in the race on the back of a strong debut win in the Clockwise Classic at Ballarat.

The betting suggests there are two clear standouts, with Sydney filly Assail ($2.80) and Clevadude ($3.60) well clear of the next best Greytfilly ($11).

Both Assail and Clevadude are unbeaten from two starts while also yet to taste defeat is Queensland filly Missy Longstocking who occupies the fourth line of betting at $13.

The Liam Birchley-trained galloper took her streak to four on Saturday when silencing a number of doubters when emerging from midfield to run down her rivals in the BJ McLachlan Stakes.
