2022 Magic Millions 3YO Guineas Field & Betting Update

One of the key events on the bumper Magic Millions Race Day card in Queensland on Saturday, the Magic Millions 3YO Guineas (1400m) field features a capacity line-up this summer.

Included in the starting line-up is the first emergency Snitzonfire for Gai Waterhouse & Adrian Bott coming in for the early scratching Mishani Enchanted.

Two runners are currently battling for top spot in Magic Millions 3YO Guineas betting markets at Ladbrokes.com.au with Jamaea and King Of Sparta equal at $5.

The Robert & Luke Price-trained Headwater filly Jamaea came up trumps with gate eight for jockey Tommy Berry in Tuesday morning’s barrier draw as she races first-up.

A two-time Group 2 winner having won both the Percy Sykes Stakes and Furious Stakes in Sydney last season, she races for the first time since her credible eighth when only four lengths off In The Congo in the Group 1 Golden Rose (1400m) last September.

Jamaea has been brought on fitness-wise with two good Gold Coast trials this summer and officially races at the track for the first time on the weekend looking to be the first Magic Millions 3YO Guineas winning filly since Flying Jess (2017).

Flying Jess (2017) was the last filly to beat home the boys in the Magic Millions 3YO Guineas at the Gold Coast

Her biggest threat according to the bookies is the Peter & Paul Snowden-trained King Of Sparta drawn gate 13 for jockey Nash Rawiller.

The Snowden stable chases back-to-back wins having prepared Aim for victory last year.

I Am Invincible gelding King Of Sparta has won two of his 11 starts to date and was last seen running under a length third in the Listed Gosford Guineas (1200m) from December 29.

He is joined in the Magic Millions 3YO Guineas field by stablemate Construct, another son of I Am Invincible with recent good form around Tiger Of Malay.

Along with the co-favourites, another two runners are under double-figures to win this season’s Magic Millions 3YO Guineas with I Am Lethal ($6) and Starman ($8) also being kept safe in betting.

The in-form John O’Shea-trained I Am Invincible colt I Am Lethal boasts a 50% winning strike rate ahead of Saturday and has won his past two starts.

Most recently he ran at the Kensington track on New Year’s Day and posted a big two and a half-length win over 1300m.

Hugh Bowman, who rode the 2011 Magic Millions 3YO Guineas winner Torio’s Quest, comes aboard for Saturday’s race but will need luck from an outside barrier 21 draw.

The Chris Waller-trained Starman fared much better in the Magic Millions 3YO Guineas barrier draw coming up with gate seven for his hoop James McDonald.

Zoustar gelding Starman comes off a runaway three length victory at the Gold Coast track over 1200m from last weekend and is out to hand Waller his first win in the event.

McDonald meanwhile chases his third victory following previous success aboard Sweet Idea (2014) and Aim (2021) last Queensland Summer Racing Carnival.

Other notable Magic Millions 3YO Guineas final acceptors include the undefeated Danny Bougoure-trained Spill The Beans filly Indiscreetly chasing a fourth win on the trot and Capitalist filly Shihonka.

Shihonka was last seen running a distant second to Tiger Heart at Doomben on January 1 in the Group 3 Vo Rogue Plate (1350m) that was conducted on a bottomless Heavy (10) track.

She is out to hand co-trainer Waterhouse with her third victory since 2001.
