Yes Yes Yes has moved into a share of second favouritism for the Magic Millions 2YO Classic after a comfortable victory at Moonee Valley.
The Darren Weir-trained colt followed his win at Flemington on December 15 with an easy victory in Saturday’s Punters.com.au Plate.
Yes Yes Yes had his price shortened for the Magic Millions 2YO Classic at the Gold Coast on January 12 from $8 to $6 to share the second line of betting with Just Zerene behind $5 joint favourites Dubious and Unite And Conquer.
Jockey John Allen said Yes Yes Yes was doing everything right at present but the Gold Coast race presented a new challenge.
Sent out the $1.85 favourite, Yes Yes Yes raced to a 1-1/2 length win from Alburq ($9) with Battlecruiser ($21) a short-neck away third.
“He’s still a little bit green so there’s improvement to come,” Allen said.
“He got a beautiful run and travelled up to them well but had a bit of a look at them.
“He’s got a great attitude and going to the Gold Coast, racing right-handed, is going to be a new task for him.
“But he definitely has the ability so we’ll be going there and hoping for a bit of luck.”
