Magic Millions 2YO Classic Betting Odds - Houtzen firms into $3.60 favouritism after Gold Coast win

Houtzen is the new favourite for the Magic Millions 2YO Classic after her jaw-dropping four-length victory on the Gold Coast on Saturday. 

Houtzen has been installed as the $3.60 favourite with Ladbrokes, replacing From Within at the top of the market. From Within now falls to the second line of betting at $4.20 

Jockey Jeff Lloyd told trainer Toby Edmonds she could “go around the outside fence and win” after riding her at trackwork last Tuesday - and she displayed all that talent at Gold Coast on Saturday.

Houtzen didn’t have to go around the outside fence showing terrific gate speed to take up the early lead. 

Houtzen, who was sent out $1.30 favourite, put two lengths on the field turning into the straight and when Lloyd released the shackles around the 300m mark the race was over in a stride as she put five lengths on the field in a matter of seconds. 

With the race parcelled up just a matter of seconds after Lloyd had asked for the effort, he eased her down while taking two long looks over each shoulder to make sure there wasn’t any threat. Only daylight could challenge as Houtzen smashed the class record despite being eased down for the final section of the race. 

“We will make certain she eats up and that everything is right. But if that is OK she will give us a great chance in the Classic,” trainer Edmonds said. “She had to stand in the barriers a while after another runner played up but she is a professional filly.”

Houtzen was 16th on the entry list before her win on Saturday, prompting the run on the weekend to guarantee an entry into the 2YO Classic. 

From Within is now on the second line of betting at $4.20, She followed up two impressive trials with a slashing debut win at Canterbury on New Year’s Eve. Invincible Star is on the third line of betting at $7.50. She was too good for her rivals winning on Derby Day. 

On the fourth line of betting is Madeenaty at $8.50. She ran third to Invincible Star on debut but was clearly on the inferior ground down the Flemington straight. She has since come out and broken her maiden status with a big win at Wyong.
