2/1/2020 Bowman to ride Nitrous

Improving colt Nitrous (Deep Field) will be ridden by Hugh Bowman in next week’s Magic Millions 2YO Classic after Tommy Berry elected to stick with his unbeaten stablemate Aim (Star Witness) for the $2 million race. The Peter and Paul Snowden-trained Nitrous, who is expected to be joined by fellow James Harron Bloodstock syndicate-owned colt King’s Legacy (Redoute’s Choice) in the race, made it two wins in succession when scoring at Randwick last Saturday. Berry was in the saddle for that win but he will switch to Aim who he guided to victory at Randwick on December 21 to take the colt’s record to two wins from as many starts.

In early Magic Millions 2YO Classic betting markets Nitrous is $21 whilst stablemate Aim is the $4.80 favourite. Check out the Magic Millions 2YO Classic betting markets.
