Magic Millions Classic 2018 Odds Firm on Sunlight

After 2018 Magic Millions 2YO Classic betting was a three-horse affair earlier in the week, the Tony McEvoy-trained filly Sunlight has emerged as clear favourite for this afternoon’s major at the Gold Coast Racecourse.

Coming in from barrier 15 to 12 with Luke Currie continuing his successful association aboard the daughter of Zoustar, Sunlight is the best-backed juvenile in this summer’s Restricted Listed $2 million Magic Millions 2YO Classic (1200m).

Her wide gate was originally a deterrence for punters and she could be had at $4.50 in Magic Millions 2YO Classic betting at at the start of the carnival.

The money has flown in for the now $3.80 top elect to make it three wins from as many starts at the Gold Coast track.

On debut Sunlight ran a close third in the Listed Maribyrnong Trial (1000m) at Flemington in October, before coming back to dominant both her summer runs in the lead-up to the Magic Millions Classic.

Just last weekend she ran off for a four and a half-length victory at the track over 1100m carrying 58kg.

Coming back to 55kg at set weights today, Sunlight is set to settle just behind the likely fast pace and storm home late out to make a mess of her rivals once again.

The main danger still in the hunt looking at the latest Magic Millions Classic odds and jumping one outside the favourite is the Tony Gollan-trained Ef Troop ($4.20).

The son of Spirit Of Boom, who sires four runners in this afternoon’s field, has won both his career starts at Doomben including most recently the Listed Phelan Ready Stakes (1100m) in mid-December.

That five length victory proved his final lead-up to the Magic Millions Race Day, Gollan opting to keep his galloper fresh.

A big drifter in the Magic Millions Classic markets easing right out from $4.20 to $6.50 meanwhile is one-time favourite Jonker for Newcastle’s David Atkins.

Another Spirit Of Boom progeny, the also undefeated colt’s latest turf triumph was on December 21 in the Wyong Magic Millions 2YO Classic (1100m).

The other two best past the post in the Wyong race were Skyray (2nd) and Bondi (3rd) who are at blowout odds of $51 and $21 respectively for this afternoon’s rematch.

Jonker has been ridden to victory in his two successful starts so far by Aaron Bullock, who has been replaced for the $2 million grand final by internationally-performed champion Hugh Bowman.

Bowman has ridden two previous Magic Millions Classic winners to victory with Bradbury’s Luck (2005) and Mime Lebrock (2007), and if successful today he joins Chris Munce and Mick Dittman on an equal-record three victories.

The genuine Magic Millions 2YO Classic betting market mover though coming right in from $11 to $7.50 is Nomothaj, the David Hayes-trained Snitzel filly coming to the inside alley.

Nomothaj has winning form over the favourite Sunlight when she saluted narrowly on debut in the Maribyrnong Trial in Melbourne and she has had two subsequent Sydney trials leading up to her second career run today.
