MM Classic takes shape
THE Magic Millions Classic picture will become clearer after Saturday when several of the top fancies step out for their final lead-up runs at Rosehill.
Joint $6.50 Magic Millions favourites Cinq Rouge, Royal Asscher and Husson Lightning are all scheduled to run at the meeting with the first two to face a rematch in a two-year-old Fillies Open Hcp (1100m).
Husson Lightning heads weights for the colts and geldings’ division with 59kg, two kilos more than the Anthony Cummingstrained Solo Flyer.
Solo Flyer is an $11 Magic Millions chance with TAB Sportsbet following his impressive win on the Kensington track at his only start to date on December 2.
However, Cummings is hopeful another of his youngsters can step up to the plate at Rosehill on Saturday and add to his Magic Millions arsenal.
Catopus, a $105,000 purchase, has been entered for the fillies race but will face a tough task on debut against the likes of the unbeaten Cinq Rouge, Jayco Sprint winner Royal Asscher and Wyong Slipper winner Illuminates.
I f she can overcome her inexperience she will join Solo Flyer at the Gold Coast on January 13.
