Is Magic Millions Classic 2013 A Race in Two?

The market suggests that Saturday’s $2 million 2013 Magic Millions Classic (1200m) is a race in two and so does the jockey of one of the leading chances.

if everything goes right for the Victorian gelding”]ClevadudeCraig Newitt, who will ride second favourite Clevadude ($4.20), thinks only favourite Assail ($2.80) can beat his mount if he runs up to his potential in the two-year-old feature.

The declaration came after Clevadude drew barrier 18, which is far less desirable than the inside draw that Assail received.

Newitt admits luck will come into play but is confident if he gets the right breaks that his horse has the x-factor to get the job done.

“I think if my bloke does everything right I think it (Assail) is the only horse that can beat me,” Newitt said.

He is trying to remain positive about the barrier draw, suggesting that it will be an advantage to be one of the last horses loaded into the gates.

Clevadude has begun his career in blistering form, winning the first two races of his career in dominant fashion.

He debuted with a 3 1/2 length win on debut at Cranbourne on December 15 and backed that up at Moonee Valley on December 29 to lead from start to finish and claim the Sportingbet Plate by 4 1/2 lengths.

Assail has been just as impressive and has a key advantage that being from Sydney she has raced exclusively in the clockwise direction.

The Clarry Conners-trained filly won by a length at Warwick Farm on debut in November and was a class above her rivals when claiming the Wyong Magic Millions on December 20.

Conners has described the daughter of Charge Forward as better than Mirror Mirror who won the Magic Millions in 2006.
