8/1/2019 Exhilarates now favourite for MM Classic

Godolphin filly Exhilarates is now favourite at $5 for the Magic Millions 2YO Classic after drawing gate nine.

Exhilarates won at the Gold Coast on Saturday to cement her place in the field and returns a week later to run for the major share of $2 million.

Bookmaker Ladbrokes wound her price in with former favourite Unite And Conquer easing out to $6 after drawing 18. Also at $6 is the Ciaron Maher and David Eustace-trained Dubious and will start from barrier seven.

The Darren Weir-trained Yes Yes Yes ($7.50) has the outside gate in the field of 16 plus five emergencies.

Yes Yes Yes is still in Melbourne and has so far not been able to get a flight to Queensland.

Two of the emergencies have drawn inside Exhilarates and she will come in to seven if they don't run.
