The 2011 Magic Millions Stayers Cup is scheduled as Race 3 at the Gold Coast today, a top event worth $170,000 in prize money due to jump at 2:00pm (AEDST), and below are the exclusive tips for the staying showdown.
Fourteen horses make up today’s Magic Millions Stayers Cup field, with #8 Fusakeo installed as the $4 favourite to win through Luxbet.
Money has continued to roll in for the Gai Waterhouse-trained gelding Fusakeo, who has been backed in from their opening quote of $4.60 in the Magic Millions Stayers Cup odds.
A wider draw should be no issue for the five-year-old, who won at Randwick from barrier 14 back in December carrying 56.5kg.
Coming off a close second to Lone Command on New Year’s Day, Fusakeo is dropping right back in the weights from 58.5kg last start to just 53kg today making them the ideal light-weight choice so we are sticking with the favourite.
Gold Coast Race 3 – Magic Millions Stayers Cup Betting Tips
- Races.com.au Favourite: #8 Fusakeo – Rated Special to Win at $4 through Luxbet
- Best Place Bets: #1 Pepperwood and #3 Jazz Heart
For the placings in the Magic Millions Stayers Cup, $4.40 second favourite Pepperwood is hard to go past after the Easy Rocking gelding claimed a brilliant win in the Listed Bernborough Handicap on a Heavy Doomben track on Boxing Day.
Runner-up in that race, Jazz Heart, is our other top pick from a nice barrier three draw.
