Newcastle-trained Jonker has regained favouritism for Saturday’s Magic Millions 2YO Classic (1200 metres) following Tuesday morning’s barrier draw on the Gold Coast.
The unbeaten colt will start the lucrative event from lane three and firmed into $4.20 on TAB fixed odds, jumping slightly back in front of Sunlight ($4.40) and Ef Troop ($4.80) after they collected widers gates 18 and 15 respectively.
