Trainer Mark Minervini is hoping Fire And Ice can better his debut effort at Randwick when he lines up in the Inglis Millennium.
The two-year-old was fourth over 1000 metres on 22nd January and is currently priced at 70/1 for the 1100-metre feature race, which is available to watch on our Sports Live Streaming hub.
El Padrino and Boldinho, which was second in the Merson Cooper Stakes, are expected to put in strong challenges for glory and are priced at 8/1 and 9/2, respectively.
A son of first-season sire Hellbent, Fire And Ice was purchased by his trainer for $80,000 at the Inglis Classic Sale last year.
Speaking about his charge, Minervini said: "He has definitely got her confidence. He is an unbelievable eater, you can't fill him up, so I'd say his constitution is the thing most like Vormista."
Fire And Ice has been drawn out wide in barrier 16 under jockey Tom Sherry and the rain-affected ground is not certain to suit, however despite these factors, Minervini knows you have to be in it to win it.
"He's there because he is very forward and very natural," the trainer added. "I haven't had a lot of two-year-old runners.
"I am probably a bit cautious with them, but he just loves his work and loves his stable life. He has done really well so we will keep going with him. We're in it, it's a $2 million race and how often do you get to run for that?"
