Andrews Sneaky Chance Of Magic Millions Record.
Feb 04, 2021
Trevor Andrews knows a thing or two about winning the Magic Millions WA 2YO Classic (1200m).
He has won the race on four previous occasions and shares the training record with David Harrison.
Andrews thinks he has a fair opportunity of going past Harrison when the 22nd edition of the race is staged at Pinjarra on Saturday.
The veteran horseman hopes to extend his dominance and have an impact with his I’m All The Talk filly Sneaky Chance.
The two-year-old has yet to salute the judge first in her three starts, but with two placings Andrews believes she has shown a glimpse of what is to come.
That view was given another shot in the arm after Sneaky Chance’s last-start third to Michelada when she made up a stack of ground from near last.
She reeled off her final 600m in race fastest 33.97sec. and with even luck she arguably could have finished closer than a length to the winner.
“I thought it was a super run,” Andrews told The Races WA.
“She had to go back from a wide draw and didn’t exactly get a clear run in the straight.
“She broke 34sec. and I don’t think there has been a two-year-old this season who has run a quicker final sectional.
“She has improved with each run and will be suited stepping up to 1200m.
“Her work on Tuesday was really good and I couldn’t be happier with her.”
Sneaky Chance has drawn barrier five. Jason Whiting, chasing his second victory in the race, retains the ride.
In contrast to her last start, Andrews expects Sneaky Chance to go forward.
“There appears a lot of pace, but she has gate speed,” Andrews said.
“I expect her be ridden positive.”
Sneaky Chance is an $11 chance behind $2.20 favourite, Sniparoochy. The Stephen Miller-trained filly unbeaten in her two career starts.
Andrews is confident Sneaky Chance can run a bold race.
“Sniparoochy is obviously going to be very hard to beat,” Andrews said.
“But I like to think we are a chance.”
Ravinia (2006) gave Andrews his first Magic Millions success. He followed up with Time To Climb (2010), Lucky Street (2015) and The River (2016).
