Gold Coast Race 1 Tips – BMW M3 Magic Millions Maiden Plate (1200m)

  • Races.com.au Favourite: #2 Speeding To Win – Rated Special to Win at $7.50 Luxbet
  • Best Place Bets: #6 Stratford and #3 Vaarwel

Despite their wide barrier draw (20), Speeding To Win still looks excellent value in the first race of the day, the well-bred Redoute’s Choice grey coming off a number of close calls.

Vaarwel has the right barrier as does Stratford so get them in the Trifecta.

Gold Coast Race 2 Tips – Sony Foundation Magic Millions Fillies & Mares Handicap (1300m)

  • Races.com.au Favourite: #6 Gai’s Choice – Rated Special to Win at $4.20 Luxbet
  • Best Place Bets: #10 Posh Chic and #3 Casholet

Casholet is the favourite, but the money is starting to come in for Gai’s Choice and we are following that money. Gai’s Choice drawn well in barrier three and coming off a good win at Randwick.

Gold Coast Race 3 Tips – Strategic Airlines Magic Millions Stayers Cup (1800m)

  • Races.com.au Favourite: #8 Fusakeo – Rated Special to Win at $4.60 Luxbet
  • Best Place Bets: #1 Pepperwood and #3 Jazz Heart

Fusakeo is one of the top fancies and should be able to overcome their wider draw without an issue. Good light weight and the distance should suit Waterhouse’s runner well.

Gold Coast Race 4 Tips – Myer Magic Millions Sprint (1000m)

  • Races.com.au Favourite: #1 Temple Of Boom – Rated Special to Win at $2.60 Luxbet
  • Best Place Bets: #6 Atomic Force and #3 Paprika

Toowoomba galloper Temple Of Boom may be at short odds, but over $2 for a sure thing is a good thing! Great recent form all season, can handle the weight, shouldn’t disappoint.

Atomic Force adds a bit of value to the trifecta with a nice draw in gate three.

Gold Coat Race 5 Tips – R.M. Williams Magic Millions Cup (1400m)

  • Races.com.au Favourite: #2 Phelan Ready – Rated Special to Win at $7 Luxbet
  • Best Place Bets: #3 Zero Rock and #1 Captain Sonador

Another upset on the cards here with proven performer Phelan Ready one of the value picks of the day. Has the experience on the track and the Magic Millions arena, some promising recent form and drops back in weights.

Can’t go past the two favourites Zero Rock and Captain Sonador to make it a close race and finish two – three.

Gold Coast Race 6 Tips – $1million Gold Coast Magic Millions 3YO Guineas (1400m)

  • Races.com.au Favourite: #13 Demanding Miss – Rated Special to Win at $9 Luxbet
  • Best to Place Bets: #1 Brightexpectations and #3 Top Drop

Demanding Miss has been one of the big market movers in the MM Guineas odds and easy to see why as she has the ideal draw from gate four, nice recent runs making her a good local to get behind.

Great odds on Waterhouse’s Brightexpectations even for the Place and Top Drop (cleared by vets so don’t be scared about earlier foot worries) is the favourite for good reason so add them in the trifecta too.

Gold Coast Race 7 Tips – $2million BMW Magic Millions 2YO Classic (1200m)

  • Races.com.au Favourite: #11 Schiffer – Rated Special to Win at $6 Luxbet
  • Best to Add in Exotics: #9 Karuta Queen, #7 Snippets Of Glory and #5 Pepper Jet

Schiffer is our favourite outsider of the day to cause an upset and it seems others are starting to see it too as they are shortening in the odds. May be out wider but should present no issue.

Have to include the ‘previously unbeaten’ Karuta Queen (just a little long between runs), while Snippets Of Glory is at a juicy price to give the exotics some flavour.

Gold Coast Race 8 Tips – Marriott Magic Millions Country Cup (1400m)

  • Races.com.au Favourite: #5 Retrospect – Rated Special to Win at $8.50 Luxbet
  • Best Place Bets: #18 Midnight At Ascot and #7 Strap Theory

Another longer-priced Magic Millions hopeful that can beat the favourites, at $8.50 Toowoomba galloper Retrospect looks good in the Country Cup following improvement in their recent runs. Light weight, experienced jockey and good draw.

Gold Coast Race 9 Tips – SKYracing.TV Magic Millions Class 6 Plate (1200m)

  • Races.com.au Favourite: #14 Metallurgical – Rated Special to Win at $7 Luxbet
  • Best Place Bets: #2 Easy Rocker and #4 What Happenedhenry

Metallurgical at $7 can rise and win with a succession of spring wins to their name and a good third last start at the track from a wide draw.
