The Bjorn Baker-trained colt started his winning streak with a win in the Ascend Sale Trophies Plate (1000m) at the Randwick Kensington track and took out the Wyong Magic Millions Classic (1100m) before stamping himself as a clear favourite for the Magic Millions Classic with his narrow victory in the Group 3 B.J. McLachlan Stakes (1200m) at Doomben on December 28.

Unencumbered has drawn ideally in barrier three and is currently available at Magic Millions Classic odds of $3.70 to give jockey Nathan Berry and trainer Bjorn Baker the biggest victory of their careers.

Invisible remains on the second line of Magic Millions Classic betting markets but has drifted in the last 48 hours and is now out to odds of $6.50.

The All American colt made his racing debut with an upset win over Jetwings and Nordic Empire in the TAB IPad App Plate (1200m) at Canterbury on December 28 and is highly rated by the Hawkes team, but the colt will have to defy history and become the first horse to win the Magic Millions Classic in just their second race start.

The best-backed runner in 2014 Magic Millions Classic betting markets has been Danny Bougoure-trained Oakleigh Girl who is now available at odds of $7 after being priced at almost double those odds earlier in the week.

Oakleigh Girl was the clear favourite for the Magic Millions Classic after scoring back-to-back wins in the Group 3 7News Stakes (1000m) at Flemington on Melbourne Cup Day and the Listed Calaway Gal Stakes (1010m) at Doomben on December 14, but drifted significantly in betting markets following her defeat in the Group 3 B.J. McLachlan Stakes.

Bougoure has remained confident that Oakleigh Girl can bounce back and win the Magic Millions Classic and that confidence is clearly shared by punters from right around Australia.

Other horses that have found support in the last 24 hours include: Gai Waterhouse-trained Cyclone ($12), B.J. McLachlan Stakes runner-up Stroak ($12) and first emergency Sagatona ($12) who only received a start in the race following the scratching of Nordic Empire.
