Invisible on Track for 2014 Magic Millions Classic

Second pick to win this Saturday’s Magic Millions Classic 2014 on the Gold Coast, the Hawkes-trained Invisible is set to make the trip from Sydney to Queensland early this week.

The All American colt sits second only to the Bjorn Baker-trained BJ McLachlan Stakes winner Unencumbered in the pre-field markets for the $2 million Gold Coast Magic Millions 2YO Classic (1200m) this weekend.

They earned their spot high up the markets for the lucrative restricted feature after a nice win on debut at Canterbury on December 28.

Backing up from a Rosehill trial win the promising two-year-old put three quarters of a length on Jetwings in a speedy effort over 1200m, an effort they are tipped to improve on in the Magic Millions race.

They’ve had plenty of love from the punters for their Magic Millions bid on January 11 since.

Co trainer Michael Hawkes, who trains in partnership with his brother Wayne and Hall of Fame father John, however knows they’ve got a tough assignment facing Testa Rosa colt Unencumbered who vies for their fourth win on the trot.

“Unencumbered has the score on the board and he is the one to beat,” Hawkes told AAP.

“But Invisible deserves his ticket.

“He is nice and fresh and it is an open race.”

To help sharpen them up for the challenge, Invisible will gallop at Rosehill Tuesday morning then travel to the sunshine state on Thursday.

While that only leaves them a couple of days before race day, Hawkes said they’ve delayed the trip to try and avoid the nasty Queensland heat wave but that it shouldn’t be any drama.

“He will travel up on Thursday which won’t be a problem,” he said.

“Our horses go back and forth from Melbourne to Sydney all the time so they are used to long float trips.”

The official Magic Millions Classic field is due out this afternoon followed by the barrier draw live from 9am (QLD time) on Tuesday.

Hawkes said that a nice barrier was crucial for Invisible and they were hoping for a gate between six and eight where they will have options in the run.

“Good barriers are always a plus,” he said.

“Six to eight would be nice. But one thing he has in his favour is that he won at Canterbury which should help him on the tight Gold Coast track.”
