Bringing the 2011 Magic Millions Race Day to a close at the Gold Coast this afternoon is Race 9 at 6:00pm (AEDST), the $82,000 Magic Millions Class 6 Plate (1200m), the final race to enjoy a punt on.
The 2011 Magic Millions Class 6 Plate final field features 15 horses, first and second emergencies Tenfold and Falls Creek gaining a start following the scratching of #9 Our Mr Cashman, #11 Unsupervised and #15 Power Of Ed (accepted as a late emergency into the Magic Millions 3YO Guineas field).
Betting markets open now at Luxbet on the Magic Millions Class 6 Plate have #4 What Happenedhenry and #16 Ready To Rip installed as the equal $4.80 favourites.
Fastnet Rock four-year-old What Happenedhenry has been in peak form this season, most recently winning a 1010m sprint at Doomben on a Heavy track on Boxing Day.
Ready To Rip is a consistent More Than Ready gelding from the Sunshine Coast that punters are tipping to improve having run a good third behind Celtic Dancer at this track under similar conditions back on January 1.
Looking across the Magic Millions Race 9 field, however, a longer-priced contender that we think can rise and cause an upset is #14 Metallurgical currently at $7 for the win through Luxbet.
Gold Coast Race 9 – Magic Millions Class 6 Plate Betting Tips
- Races.com.au Favourite: #14 Metallurgical – Rated Special to Win at
- Best Place Picks: #2 Easy Rocker and #4 What Happenedhenry
John Thompson’s locally trained Redoute’s Choice gelding Metallurgical broke their maiden status back on November 2 and claimed three successive victories from there.
After finishing third behind Facile Tigre in a Class 6 showdown at the Gold Coast last start, a race that they could have won had they not faced interference at the start, we are getting right behind Metallurgurgical to return to form here today.
To fill the placings What Happenedhenry has to be in the mix, but Easy Rocker at big $15 odds to win and $4.50 to Place at Luxbet is another one to add value and continue the good runs from the Toowoomba horses at the Gold Coast this afternoon.
