The 2011 Gold Coast Magic Millions 3YO Guineas is one of the major drawcards at tomorrow’s iconic Magic Millions Race Day at the Gold Coast and with a bumper field full of elite three-year-olds the online betting markets for this season’s $1 million Magic Millions Guineas are really starting to heat up.
The Gerald Ryan-trained Top Drop has been the clear favourite with the punters ahead of Saturday’s showdown, the Snitzel colt still at the top of the Magic Millions Guineas odds paying $4.40 through Luxbet.
Coming off a good win against a field of older competitors over 1400m at Randwick on Boxing Day, Top Drop originally opened at $4.20 but has drifted slightly after drawing wide with gate 13 for tomorrow.
However, despite looking to have peaked at the right time having previously ran a close second to Torio’s Quest in the Wyong Magic Millions 3YO Stakes, the wet track conditions at the Gold Coast are a concern for the favourite Top Drop tomorrow.
Since betting markets opened on the Magic Millions Guineas, big wagers have come in for a number of other contenders and the major market movers at Luxbet include:
- #11 Celtic Dancer – $8.50 into $7.50 – Drawn in barrier one, the local Choisir gelding coming off a good win on a Heavy Gold Coast track on New Year’s Day
- #13 Demanding Miss – $11 into $9 – Barry Baldwin’s classy Commands filly with an ideal barrier four draw & the Races.com.au favourite to win having shown good recent form in Sydney
Other horses in the Magic Millions 3YO Guineas line-up this year that are sitting at the top of the odds include $5.50 second elect Intencion who needs two scratching to gain a start but will put in a big run if they get in, and Wyong Magic Millions winner Torio’s Quest still a real fancy despite drifting out from $6 to $7.50 following their wide draw in the far outside barrier.
Drifters in the 2011 Magic Millions Guineas betting that represent good value picks in your exotic wagers through Luxbet include:
- #1 Brightexpectations – out to $15 from $14 – Gai Waterhouse’s star More Than Ready colt ready to return to form after finishing just over a length back from Torio’s Quest in the Wyong MM 3YO
- #2 Spirit Of Boom – out from $11 to $13 – The Tony Gollan-trained Toowoomba galloper in the line-up with a number of wins at the Gold Coast track to their credit
- #19 Posh Chic – out from #14 to $16 – Third emergency that we fancy will gain a start and surprise many having showed great style in a brave fifth in the Wyong MM 3YO
Set to run as Race 6 at the Gold Coast jumping at 4:00pm, the 2011 Magic Millions 3YO Guineas is one of the best summer races so get in on the action now by checking out the odds at Luxbet!
