MM Clas­sic takes shape

Townsville Bulletin - - Racing -

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.
