Magic Millions 2yo Classic-R.L 2 , 1200m
Race Synopsis: In a race marred by severe early interference, Sunlight remains unbeaten in three starts in Queensland this preparation and staged a brilliant performance in winning here. She was again quickly away, narrowly missed trouble but still worked hard in the early stages before settling in second place, chasing the free-running leader (Ef Troop). She set out after the leader at the 300m, went to the front at the 100m and then went on to score impressively. Fullazaboot settled back in 12th place from his outside barrier (16), went deepest of all at the 300m and responded well to riding in coming with a late bid, being suited by the fast early pace, to take second. Outback Barbie settled midfield, got between runners on straightening, went to fourth at the 200m and then battled on nicely for third. Previously unbeaten colt Ef Troop again showed brilliant early pace and quickly crossed from his wide barrier (13), resulting in crowding to the early leaders, before dashing to a clear lead. He then set a hectic tempo (first 600m 33.65) and did well under the circumstances in holding on for (3.1 lengths) fourth. Secret Lady was quickly away but was involved in early trouble before settling back in fourth place. She then held on quite well for (4.8 lengths) fifth while the second favourite Jonker was handily placed but hit the rails heavily when crowded in the early stages for settling in sixth place on the rails. He then faded in the straight and was eased over the latter stages by Hugh Bowman to finish last.
