Doomben 10,000 winner Music Magnate has opened favourite for the start of his winter carnival campaign in Saturday’s Victory Stakes.

Online bookmaker sportsbet.com.au has priced the five-year-old at $2.30 for the Eagle Farm Group 2.

Winterbottom Stakes winner Takedown is second pick at $3.20, in the small field.

In the Group 3 Gunsynd Classic Toowoomba three-year-old Dreams Aplenty heads the market at $1.90.

Spring Tycoon ($3.90) and Kubis ($8.50) are the only other runners under double figures.

“Music Magnate opened his Group 1 account in Brisbane last year and he looks in good shape for this year’s winter carnival campaign. He trialled well, has a great first-up record and can handle the wet, which may help on the tricky surface,’’ said sportsbet.com.au’s Will Byrne.
