Spywire will be out to lock away his place in the Magic Millions 2YO Classic when he runs in the $150,000 Gold Nugget on the Gold Coast.

The son of Trapeze Artist was in 21st position in the most recent order of entry and should be safe with at least six runners ahead of him already ruled out of the 1200-metre event.

But this Saturday's two juvenile races at the Gold Coast present horses with the opportunity to improve their position.

Spywire was expected to secure his place in the $3 million event on the Gold Coast in last month's Wyong Magic Millions Classic but Highness ran him down in the closing stages.

Co-trainer Ciaron Maher is thrilled with what he has seen from the $520,000 yearling since.

"He's great, really well, he's in good order," Maher, who trains with David Eustace, said.

"I'm still very happy with him."

Spywire is one of six runners in the 1100m Gold Nugget.

His opposition will include Defiant Boom , on a back-up after running second last weekend, Listed Phelan Ready Stakes winner Beau Dazzler and the Tony Gollan first-starter Balastier, who has looked slick at the barrier trials.

Spywire has drawn barrier two, which presents Craig Williams with the chance to lead, something the colt has done at his first two starts.

But Maher wouldn't mind seeing the youngster ridden with a trail.

The Magic Millions-winning trainer thinks his best chance of claiming this year's juvenile feature could be having something to chase.

"He's been ridden forward, but that's because of the way it's panned out," he said.

"If he's able to draw a gate (it will be good). If he finds a bum, he'll drop his head."

The Gold Nugget is joined on Saturday's Gold Coast program by the Gold Pearl, in which last-start Ballarat Magic Millions Classic winner Arabian Summer is favourite ahead of Gollan-trained first-starter Moulin Miss.
