Wicked Intent a Serious Contender for 2015 Magic Millions Classic

Wicked Intent made it two from two on Saturday when he impressively won the Breakfast Creek Hotel QTIS 2YO Handicap over 1050m at Doomben Racecourse, four and a half lengths ahead of runner-up Mishani Honcho.

Champion hoop Chris Munce, who rode the two-year-old colt to his runaway victory on Saturday, believes Wicked Intent is now a serious contender for the $2 million Magic Millions 2YO Classic (1200m) at the Gold Coast on January 10.

If Munce believes the colt is a 2015 Magic Millions contender, he probably is. The jockey has won the 2YO Classic three times aboard Sunblazer (1989), Excellerator (2001), and Dance Hero (2004).

He had no hesitation comparing Wicked Intent to his three previous winners either.

“Don’t worry, he’s right up with those horses,” he told TVN.

“He’s improved a helluva lot since he won his first start at the Gold Coast and he’s a lovely mover and very strong.

“Even though he’s not very big he’s got a massive stride on him.”

Wicked Intent was second favourite to win the Doomben Handicap, paying $3.30 at Ladbrokes.com.au behind Meet George Jetson at $3.10. He led from the outside to crush his rivals, running away from Mishani Honcho ($4.80) with Mishani Di Caprio ($8) a further neck away in third.

While the 2015 Magic Millions 2YO Classic is the confirmed summer target for Wicket Intent, the colt’s lead-up races have yet to be confirmed. His trainer Barry Mitchell, who happens to be Munce’s father-in-law, is weighing up a couple of options.

“There’s the Phelan Ready over 1050 metres here in a fortnight or the McLachlan at the end of next month if we want to try him at 1200 metres before the Millions,” he said.
