The countdown to the Sydney Spring Racing...
All the early money for Thursday’s 2016 Wyong Magic Millions 2YO Classic betting is on the Gold Coast-bound Madeenaty who races outside of Melbourne for the first time.
A key lead-up to the Gold Coast’s $2 million Magic Millions 2YO Classic (1200m) on January 14, this summer’s $200,000 Wyong Magic Millions 2YO Classic (1100m) field has attracted a dozen young hopefuls.
Only half of those have had a previous race start including the Lindsay Park-trained Exceed And Excel filly Madeenaty.
She won on debut in the Listed Maribyrnong Trial (1000m) before returning to the Flemington track on Cup Day to finish third as the beaten odds-on favourite in the Group 3 Ottawa Stakes (1000m).
Madeenaty gets the chance to atone at Wyong on Thursday having her first start the right-handed way of racing and is tipped to get the job done despite her wide barrier 10 draw.
Jockey Mark Zahra retains the ride and has been signing the filly praises all week.
Current Magic Millions Wyong Classic odds at Ladbrokes.com.au have her at $2.25 for the win and she is also being kept safe in futures betting for the Gold Coast race next month heading those markets at $7.
Following closely in the Wyong Magic Millions Classic betting markets for Thursday at $3.50 is the unraced Dinnigan, one three juveniles in the field for Gai Waterhouse & Adrian Bott.
A $12 chance for the lucrative Gold Coast edition of the series in a few weeks, Snitzel filly Dinnigan caught the eye with a Randwick trial win by over four lengths on December 13.
She’s out to bring that form to her debut at Wyong and jumps from gate seven with dual Gold Coast Magic Millions Classic winning jockey Tommy Berry – Driefontein (2012) and Karuta Queen (2011) – aboard.
Waterhouse & Bott’s other Wyong runners are the fellow unraced Undaunted ($31) in the outside barrier (12) and Madonnica ($21) in gate three second-up after her second at the track on debut behind Sebring Express on December 7.
Occupying the third line of betting at $5.50 is another youngster on debut, the Gary Portelli-trained Single Bullet.
The nicely-bred Not A Single Doubt colt is a $26 outsider for the $2 million January MM 2YO Classic and jumps from gate six on Thursday with Koby Jennings aboard.
Early market mover is the Chris Waller-trained Madame Moustache already backed in from $10 to $9.50.
She’s drawn a treat in barrier two for hoop Brenton Avdulla, the promising Hinchinbrook filly racing for the first time since a Randwick win back in mid-October.
Prior to that Madame Moustache ran fourth beaten only 1.4 lengths on debut in the Listed Gimcrack Stakes (1000m) and she’ll get the run of the race this week.
