The Magic Millions 2YO Classic 2024 Preview

Track: Soft Weather: Fine

Storm Boy is 2/2 so far and looks well poised to make it a hat trick here. Spywire bounced back with a good win when up on speed last start and is good enough to take this out. Highness took on Spywire on debut and mowed it down late in what was a controversial finish. Arabian Summer brings in some different form lines and rounds out the chances. Parkour can find the placings off the back of a strong last start win but will need a miracle from barrier 17.

The Magic Millions 2YO Classic 2024 Runner by Runner

1. Storm Boy (10)

Looks the winner with luck from the draw. 2 comprehensive wins so far to date and is the clear horse to beat in this field.

2. Spywire (12)

Convincing win last start and well placed to go on with things. Strikes the right race and is a top 2 chance in this.

3. Parkour (17)

Hard to line the form up but good last start win and Kah sticking is a decent push. Can win.

4. Highness (4)

Racing well and maps for the run of the race. Should be able to pounce on these late and looks hard to hold out coming off the back of a win against Spywire.
