Safusa Strangles 2012 Magic Millions Guineas Odds

Steady money for favourite Safusa to win the Magic Millions Guineas 2012 at the Gold Coast on Saturday has started to roll in, the David Pfieffer-trained three-year-old maintaining a stranglehold over the markets for the $1 million feature.


Safusa continues to firm in their 2012 Magic Millions 3YO Guineas favouritisim

After opening at a quote of $4.00 to take out the Gold Coast Magic Millions 3YO Guineas (1400m), adding to their last-start win in the Magic Millions Wyong 3YO Stakes on December 22, Elusive Quality gelding Safusa has now firmed into $3.80 through Luxbet.

Everyone involved in the consistent three-time winner are supremely confident Safusa will get the job done tomorrow, repeating the Wyong – Gold Coast MM 3YO double completed by their stablemate Graceful Anna two years ago.

Owners Glenn and Viieve Williams, who enjoyed the Magic Millions Classic success 12 months ago with Karuta Queen, believe everything is in Safusa’s favour on Saturday including their ideal barrier two draw.

The youngster is likely to come into gate one with the emergencies coming out, and although they see the 1400 metres for the first time, Glenn Williams knows they have the ability to get the distance.

“He has an excellent gate, especially now that he should jump from barrier one,” Williams said.

“We don’t think the 1400 metres will be a problem and (jockey) Jay (Ford) will probably jump him out and take a sit and then it will be up to getting the run at the right time.”

Their Warwick Farm trainer Pfieffer, who has enjoyed plenty of success at the Magic Millions Race Day in the past thanks to the victory of Gai’s Choice in the fillies and mares race last year and Graceful Anna’s MM Trophy win back in 2010, is also very happy with where Safusa is at ahead of this year’s Guineas.

“He’s going super,” Pfieffer said.

“He travelled up on Saturday night and has had a nice week to settle in.

“We gave him a little spin around the course proper (on Tuesday) and he looked great.”

Pfieffer was also pleased with the progressive galloper’s inside draw but said that it wasn’t essential that they get to the front and lead, the trainer preferring Ford allow Safusa to drop back just off the pace and let others in the field do the hard work early.

“The barrier is perfect for him, near the fence is by far the best place for this horse,” he said.

“He can ping the lids and will probably be in front in the first 100 metres but then the instructions will be to take hold and let a couple go in front of him.

“It’s a big field and there will be a lot of pressure on early.

“Jay can sit back on the fence, smoking his pipe, until the home turn.”

Five of Safusa’s Magic Millions Guineas rivals are also at single-figures in the latest Luxbet markets, the next shortest-priced of which is Happy Hussy at $6.50.

David Payne’s in-form Sydney filly certainly has nice form and a last-start win over the distance boosting her credentials but she must overcome a wide double-digit draw if she is to upset the favourite.

The other notable chances include rapid market mover Easy Running ($7.50), the Chris Waller-trained Subarc ($7.50), Group 3 Vo Rogue Plate winner last time out Punch On ($8.50) and Kelso Wood’s improving filly Lucky Morna ($9).

The $1 million Gold Coast Magic Millions 3YO Guineas (1400m) is set to run as Gold Coast Race 6 on Saturday jumping at 3:25pm (QLD time).
