2020 Magic Millions Classic Betting Update: Punters Aim for Favourite

The Magic Millions Classic 2020 betting odds continue to firm on the Peter & Paul Snowden-trained favourite Aim who has been well-backed to retain his undefeated status come Saturday afternoon.

One of four for the stable lining-up in this summer’s $2 million Restricted Listed Magic Millions 2YO Classic (1200m) on the Gold Coast, two-time winning Star Witness colt Aim is tipped as the two-year-old to beat in the lucrative set weights clash.

The money started to pour in for Aim to make it three straight wins after the colt drew barrier two with Tommy Berry retaining the ride on the boom colt.

Berry partnered the bay last start on December 21 where the young horse backed up from a successful debut at Rosehill to blitz his rivals by four lengths in a two-years-old handicap over the 1200m distance on December 21.

A repeat of that form on the weekend and Aim will be adding his name to the list of Magic Millions 2YO Classic winners.

Co-trainer Peter Snowden remains confident in the stable’s top shot despite talks that the close-to-the-rails draw could be a danger spot.

“I don’t think Aim will get that far back early,” he told The Daily Telegraph.

“At his first start Aim got a fair way out of his ground but at his second start he could have been much closer to them in the run.

“Tommy (Berry) was having his first ride on the colt and might have settled back a bit too far back but the horse was always travelling for him.

“I’m not saying Aim is going to be behind the leaders but I would say he will be about three pairs back rather than five or six like he was the other day.”

It is a bunched top half of the market with a further three runners also under $10 Magic Millions Classic odds including the $6.50 second elect Farnan.

Also drawn well in barrier five, the Gai Waterhouse & Adrian Bott-trained son of Not A Single Doubt is another undefeated two-year-old who has won both his previous career starts.

Farnan debuted at Canberra in November for a nearly five length success over 1000m carrying 58kg before taking out the Wyong Magic Millions 2YO Classic (1200m) a month later.

The colt has been kept fresh since and is out to frank the form from that Wyong lead-up.

Rounding out the single figure chances are Aim’s last start winning stablemate King’s Legacy ($7) and the James Cummings-trained Conceited ($9) drawn wide for Godolphin.

Kerrin McEvoy rides the promising Redoute’s Choice colt King’s Legacy for the third time after a third to Aim on debut at Rosehill before the horse broke his maiden status at Eagle Farm on December 28.

There King’s Legacy defeated the Wyong Magic Millions second placed filly Every Rose for a half-length win in the Group 3 BJ McLachlan Stakes (1200m).

Conceited has Damian Lane aboard this weekend, the horse-jockey partnership combining for a third time.

Lane rode the Brazen Beau colt to a win on debut at Flemington on December 14 before finishing second behind Wisdom Of Water at the Gold Coast last Saturday in the Gold Nugget (1100m) ahead of his quick back-up into the $2M Classic.

“I suppose Aim and King’s Legacy have similar form,” Snowden, who won the race back in 2016 with the talented Capitalist, said.

“They clashed at their first starts where Aim won, and King’s Legacy was unlucky then they both came out and won their second starts.

“King’s Legacy will probably settle midfield in a similar position to Aim. He will be ridden with a bit of patience but also, we don’t want to see him get too far out of the race.”

Of the longer priced chances in this year’s Magic Millions 2YO Classic field there could be genuine value on offer in the likes of the Gold Nugget winner Wisdom Of Water ($15) who is drawn well midfield and the consistent Mark Newnham-trained Every Rose ($11) looking to atone for her back-to-back seconds in the lead-up.
