11/01/20 Horse racing tips from early market movers

Magic Betting Moves

This week’s edition of Market Movers features all the key betting action associated with a bumper Magic Millions Day card.

We've also identified the early smart money at Flemington, as we look to continue the great results for punters in 2020.

Look for a further move close to start time for extreme confidence on the below tips.


Flemington Tips

Flemington Tips

Exquisite Beauty

Was well fancied last start at Moonee Valley, when she started as favourite and ran on strongly to win.

The extra distance (100m) here looks ideal and she can charge late again from back in the field.

Expect her to start shorter.



Had no luck last start at Moonee Valley, where he was held up over the concluding stages to finish 3 of 10.

He was hard in the market on that occasion as the $1.60 favourite and was expected to win.

This race looks harder, however the current price of $2.70 is acceptable. Yes.


Thousand Wishes

Is looking to chalk up the hat-trick here, following two impressive wins at Sandown and again at this course last start over 1600m.

Trainer Danny O’Brien is in white-hot form and back in distance to 1400m suits this runner.

From gate 5, she should race on speed and be very hard to run past.



Looks a great chance to upset the favourite in the feature race of the day.

His third-up record (5:2-2-1) is lethal and he strikes a weak field here for stakes grade.

Expect the rider to go forward and find an ideal position just in behind the leaders. Yes.


Gold Coast

Gold Coast Tips


He’ll Haunt Us

Has leading rider Damien Oliver on-board and his manager usually finds him the right horse in these events.

He is lightly raced with two starts and must be showing plenty at home to warrant the good support.

Should find a position midfield with cover and be charging home late.



Was a huge run from back in the field at Randwick last start, when she rattled home.

She has won this race for the past two years and looks bang on target to claim it again.

Her natural profile is to get back and she just needs a touch of speed up front, to be running home hard over the top.


Vega One

Has been backed off the map in this and must have improved during his four week freshen.

He was heavily supported to win last start also and won accordingly after racing close to speed.

I doubt they will press forward here from gate 14, however trust the gun rider (Rodd) to find a position midfield with cover.



His third-up record (2:2-0-0) is unblemished and he showed enough last start where although beaten, showed enough fight.

The drop back in distance to 1300m is perfect and he should be one of the toughest horses late.

Expect them to find the front and prove very hard to gun down. Yes.

We've put all the selections for Melbourne racing this Saturday on the Gold Coast tips page, ordered by each tipster's validated profit stats.
