Horse Racing Tips: Magic Millions 3YO Classic 2019

Magic 3yo contest

Distance 1400m
Grade Restricted 
Track Rating Good 4
Prize Money $2,000,000
Class 3yo SW-P
2018 Winner Pierata ($2.80)


Rarely do 3yo's have an opportunity to race for $2,000,000 in prize money as is the case here, so it's no surprise to see an ultra competitive field assembled from all the powerful racing states.

I have bet around the favourite who appears well under the odds, and am with one that had plenty of excuses last start and can easily surprise a few here. 


Race Track Race Gold Coast Track Traits

The Gold Coast surface is currently rated a Good 4 with the rail out 1.5m from 1000m-400m, True the remainder and fine conditions predicted for Saturday.

There is always a slight leader bias present at the Gold Coast due to the tight turning nature of the circuit. Look for on-speed profiles to hold an advantage. 


Market Movers Racing Market Movers

Strong support has come for Outback Barbie in early betting with a move from $2.60 to $2.30.

Others to attract interest include Bondi $12 to $9.50 and Granny Red Shoes $21 to $18.


Horse Racing Key Runners

#1 Boomsara

By the hot young sire Spirit Of Boom and comes into this race off the back of an absolute romp last start, braining the field of 14 in the listed Vo Rogue by 4.5 lengths.

The rider will press forward from gate 18 here to be in the first few throughout running and just needs a touch of luck to find the rail or be one off. 

Has the right form-lines and will keep kicking for a long way. Top hope.   


#3 Bondi  

Brings Sydney form which is strong enough, and has been in the money his past two against good opposition at both Randwick and Wyong.

The Snowdens are masters of getting one to peak on the right day and they will have this colt cherry ripe.

Going off his "rattling home" run two starts back, he may be best ridden back and allowed to run on, which suggests his outside draw (gate 15) is no huge concern.  

Has the services of of Kerrin McEvoy and could get a warp speed tempo to suit. Must include.  


#4 The Fire Trap 

Was a duel acceptor and connections have revealed their confidence in opting to go to this harder event.

He ran well last start to finish 5 of 14 in the listed Vo Rouge, when encountering plenty of difficulty (galloped on, lacerated), and it would not surprise to see a much improved run here given more luck in running. 

The current $16 in betting looks huge overs and at the price he must go on top. Yes. 


#5 Star Fall

Everyone is talking about "the Star Fall form" hence this galloper has to be respected.

He was smashed in betting last time out at Caulfiled after working early and going on to brain them. Since then, plenty of the horses finishing behind him that day have come out to win impressively. 

Another one that looks big overs at $11 and could start shorter. Leading hope.      


#8 Outback Barbie  

Raging hot favourite who appears under the odds to my eye.

No doubting the quality and certainly respect the good runs this time in. Just fear this is a much deeper race than most expect and she could be a big drifter on the day.

Last start had excuses finishing 6 of 14 in the Vo Rogue when checked and wide at vital stages. 

It will be a much improved performance but prefer to bet around at the skinny odds. Value is elsewhere in this. 


Of The Others

Throw in #9 Granny Red Shoes as the blow out chance, who is staked with talent and could pull out a big run at the healthy odds of $21. She has a touch of quality and can easily bounce back from her last start Doomben failure.
