2018 Magic Millions Cup Field & Odds: Care To Think Favourite

The bookies have installed the Matthew Dunn-trained Care To Think at the top of the Magic Millions Cup 2018 odds after final acceptances for Saturday’s Restricted Listed clash closed on Wednesday morning.

Due to run as the Gold Coast Race 6 at 2:35pm (AEST), this summer’s $1 million Woodford Reserve Magic Millions Cup (1400m) drew a full field of 16 starters plus three emergencies.

Drawn out wide in barrier 19, coming into the outside alley 16 of 16 on race day, is Dunn’s flying So You Think four-year-old Care To Think.

Despite the nasty gate, the in-form gelding remains favourite in updated Magic Millions Cup betting at Ladbrokes.com.au paying $3.60 to make it five wins on the trot.

Care To Think comes off successive December victories at Doomben, the latest over 1350m carrying 56.5kg.

Jockey Jeff Lloyd retains the ride on the weekend with the Magic Millions Cup favourite coming back to the 54kg minimum and looking to add to an outstanding record over the distance that stands at four wins and a second from four starts.

Heading the Magic Millions Cup field and weights with a hefty 61kg is the Darren Weir-trained Lucky Hussler.

The veteran Husson eight-year-old not only gives away the kilos, but has also come up with the second widest gate in his hunt for a second Magic Millions Cup trophy.

Lucky Hussler won the race in 2016 before a midfield seventh to Testashadow 12 months ago and races for the first time since a close fifth in the Group 3 Sandown Stakes (1500m) at Ladbrokes Park on November 18.

The galloper may be wide and heavily weighted, but Lucky Hussler remains under $10 for the win at a current price of $9.50 in the Magic Millions Cup markets.

Along with Lucky Hussler and the favourite there are two other single-figure fancies with the rails-drawn Arbeitsam ($5.50) and Crack Me Up ($6) drawn ideally in gate five.

Tim Clark retains the ride on the Gai Waterhouse & Adrian Bott-trained Snitzel four-year-old Arbeitsam who won three Sydney races on the trot during the autumn before a first-up fifth at Wyong.

Unplaced in last summer’s Magic Millions 3YO Guineas as a three-year-old, Arbeitsam has matured well since and was under two lengths beaten with 59kg on his back in the Wyong Magic Millions 3YO & 4YO Stakes (1200m) on December 21.

Set to appreciate the step back-up to 1400m that he has an excellent record over (6:3-0-1), the gelding also drops right back in weight to the 54kg minimum making him a flying chance to return to winning form.

Crack Me Up meanwhile comes into the line-up having won two of his past three starts, most recently saluting at Royal Randwick in mid-December’s Group 2 Villiers Stakes (1600m).

A four-year-old son of Mossman prepared at Woodford by Liam Birchley, Crack Me Up is back to 1400m and has Damian Browne back in the saddle for the first time since his Group 3 Sunshine Coast Guineas (1600m) win last July.
