12/01/02 Confident Munce Wraps Snowland on Millions Eve
0107chrismunce.jpg (11384 bytes)Leading jockey Chris Munce has given today's hot favourite for the Magic Millions 2YO Classic Snowland a huge wrap on the eve of the million dollar dash here on the Gold Coast.

Munce told Cyberhorse that Snowland was "as good as two-year-old" he had ridden in a distinguished career.

The Sydney based hoop likened the Gai Waterhouse trained youngster to the former top liner Brave Warrior, whom we was the regular rider of, but missed partnering to glory in the Magic Millions.

"At this stage of his career I would compare him with Brave Warrior. Both were excellent juveniles," Munce said.

Munce will be hoping today's Magic Millions meeting doesn't mirror what happened when he was set to partner Brave Warrior, a horse part owned by his wife.

"Sadly I missed riding him in the Magic Millions race because I had a fall and was injured just two races earlier," he recalled.

Munce feels the greatest opposition for the race could come from another Waterhouse runner or a Melbourne visitor.

"Chuckle looked good winning the other day and he could be the one to beat, while the Melbourne horse Blur was impressive in Sydney," Munce said yesterday.

Waterhouse as expected wasn't willing to dismiss any of her runners as not having a winning chance.

"All four of them have settled in well and all have a great chance of winning," Waterhouse said.

When pressed the in form trainer gave her selections (as expected) in the order of betting.

"Snowland marginally ahead of Chuckle, while Sunday Joy and Obsession should be right in the finish as well," she added.

Snowland will start the favourite in today's $1 million race over 1200 metres on the Gold Coast.
