2011 Gold Coast Magic Millions Race Day – Race 5 Magic Millions Cup Tips & Field

The first of the ‘big three’ Magic Millions feature showdowns lighting up the Gold Coast Racecourse today is the $328,000 Magic Millions Cup running as Race 5 at 3:20pm (AEDST), and below are the Races.com.au Magic Millions Cup betting tips.

The 2011 Magic Millions Cup field features 10 star gallopers with #1 Captain Sonador the pronounced favourite in the Luxbet markets paying $3.80 to win.

Roger Milne’s Shamardal four-year-old Captain Sonador has drifted out slightly in the odds after opening at $3.60, however having won the Listed Goldmarket Handicap at the Gold Coast track last start is still the punters pick in Race 5 at the Gold Coast today.

Looking at the Magic Millions Cup field, the Races.com.au team think an upset result is on the cards and have our money on #2 Phelan Ready to win at a nice price.

Gold Coast Race 5 – Magic Millions Cup Betting Tips

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

More Than Ready four-year-old Phelan Ready has remained at $7 to win today’s Magic Millions Cup, not getting much love from the punters.

Considering this previous Magic Millions 2YO Classic winner ran a gallant third behind Captain Sonador last start, has a better barrier draw than the favourite starting from gate two and will carry 2.5kg less, Phelan Ready is great value and in our opinion hard to go past.

A Group 1 winner this season Captain Sonador is still in our top three picks, but watch for Zero Rock to finish second, the in-form mare nicely weighted and ready to return to her previous winning form.

There’s still plenty of time to open you Luxbet account and get in on the Magic Millions betting action!
