Punters think jockey Chris Munce can retire on a winning note in the Magic Millions Classic.
The popular hoop’s Millions mount, Wicked Intent, has been bombarded with online bookmaker sportsbet.com.au. The flashy colt has firmed back into outright $5.50 favouritism ahead of Frequendly ($6.00).
Munce is also $3.00 to ride a winner on his final day and $1.40 not to bow out with a win.
“Muncey must have a massive fan base because since his announcement money has just kept rolling in for Wicked Intent. We wish the little champ the best, but it’ll be a bad result for us as the colt holds more money than every other runner put together,’’ said sportsbet.com.au’s Shaun Anderson.
Punters have narrowed the Guineas down to two chances, favourite Hijack Hussy ($3.60) and Cyclone ($13). Those two dominate betting with little interest now in Testashadow ($7.00) and Aerobar ($8.50).
