Wicked Intent and Frequendly have maintained their favouritism tag for Saturday’s Magic Millions Classic after drawing ideally today, both placed at $6.00 with online bookmaker sportsbet.com.au.
“History shows you need a good barrier to win the Magic Millions so Frequendly and Wicked Intent have come up trumps. They are the ones to beat, but punters face a tough task to separate the pair,’’ said sportsbet.com.au’s Shaun Anderson.
One time Classic favourite Carriages has eased from $13 to $15 after drawing the carpark. The Gai Waterhouse filly will jump from the outside gate in the 16-horse field.
There was little change in Guineas betting following the draw. Hijack Hussy, who jumps from gate 6 has firmed from $4.00 into $3.50 ahead of Testashadow ($7.00) and Aerobar ($8.00).
