A Restricted Listed showdown, the $2 million Gold Coast Magic Millions 3YO Guineas (1400m) is due to jump at 3:15pm as the seventh race on the bumper nine-race, $10 million program and features a capacity field.

Unlike in the Magic Millions Classic where Capitalist ($1.75) is the only single figure hope in the markets at Ladbrokes.com.au, where you can lock in Best Tote or SP + 20% on ALL 9 Gold Coast races on Saturday, the Magic Millions 3YO Guineas betting odds are much more open.

Current $4 favourite is the Darren Weir-trained Mahuta who was last seen posting his fourth straight win in the Group 2 Sandown Guineas (1600m) in mid-November.

He might have had a freshen-up, be in flying form and dropping in distance but he has the second widest barrier to overcome and had a disruption to his week with a delayed trip to Queensland due to a flight cancelation.

That opens it up for one of the other dangers in the classy field to score the upset including the Bjorn Baker-trained filly Egyptian Symbol ($4.80) who was a big winner with her barrier six draw after a luckless third to Madotti in the Group 3 Vo Rogue Plate (1300m) at the Gold Coast on Boxing Day.

The third best in betting is then the Peter & Paul Snowden-trained Flippant who beat home Egyptian Symbol in the Wyong Magic Millions 3YO & 4YO Stakes last month, but has work to do from gate 19 this weekend.

So will the first three in betting be the first three past the post in the Magic Millions 3YO Guineas result this weekend or is there value tipping an upset from the likes of the Gai Waterhouse-trained Flamboyant Lass ($12)  looking to return to form or even Tony Gollan’s Vo Rogue runner-up Most Important ($17)?


#16 Egyptian Symbol ($4.80)

Baker’s Sydney-trained daughter of Stratum had zero luck in the Vo Rogue for her first Gold Coast run last time out when slow out of the gates and then caught-up on the straight. She’s seen the track now, is drawn a treat in barrier six and if she doesn’t miss the start again will give this field something to chase with Glyn Schofield staying aboard the promising filly who looks set to peak.


#3 Most Important ($17)

Nice odds on offer for Gollan’s I Am Invincible colt who Tegan Harrison stays on. He was fourth at home at Doomben in Listed company on December 17 before his second in the Vo Rogue last time out from a bad barrier 14 of 15 draw. He was $26 that day and still a good price for this where he’ll be on the improve, is drawn better and a livewire hope to finish in the money for Brisbane’s best trainer.


#1 Mahuta ($4)

Deserving favourite based on what Weir’s Flying Spur cult had been doing in Melbourne over the spring including the Group 2 Sandown Guineas win over the mile. Back to 1400m here, a distance he boasts two wins from as many starts over but will jump from 15 of 16, which is the challenge. The lead-up form is super though and only needs luck from the gate to get the job done.
