2013 Magic Millions 3YO Guineas Form Guide & Preview

The second richest race on the Gold Coast program for Saturday’s Magic Millions Race Day is the Magic Millions 3YO Guineas 2013, the Races.com.au team’s insider form guide analysis and betting preview for which is detailed below.

Sizzling

Sizzling is favourite for the 2013 Magic Millions 3YO Guineas but are they really the horse to beat?

Due to jump as the Gold Coast Race 5 at 2:45pm the $1 million Gold Coast Magic Millions 3YO Guineas (1400m) features a capacity field of 16 starters plus five emergencies lying in wait.

Topping the latest Magic Millions Guineas odds is the Kelso Wood-trained Sizzling, the Group 1 winning Snitzel colt looking to overcome a horror draw (20) and their shock last start conqueror (Lucky Hussler) who beat them home in an upset Vo Rogue Plate result on December 29 at Doomben.

Other top fancies in the mix for the MM Guineas this year include the Gai Waterhouse-trained fillies Driefontein (out to $5.50) and No Looking Back (into $4.60) who officially finished first and second respectively in the Magic Millions Classic last year after the quinella was reversed upon protest.

While the Magic Millions Guineas betting markets are dominated by these three hopefuls often the race form, betting history and facts can tell a different story.

To help you decide whether to stick with the favourites or back a longer priced Guineas hopeful this Magic Millions Day such as the Rob Heathcote-trained Vo Rogue Plate third place-getter Heza Jetsetter ($11) or Vo Rogue winner Lucky Hussler ($15) we have done the hard work for you.
