Champions Mile Form Guide & Tips

1. Golden Sixty (Best Bet – $1.35) Bet @ Sportsbet

Despite the odds of $1.35, it’s almost impossible to back against Golden Sixty. The five-year-old owns 16 wins from 17 starts, which is an incredible record.

The son of Medaglia D’oro scored a win in the Hong Kong Gold Cup by only a nose, but he pulled out everything when asked for the ultimate effort.

It showed his will to win and although he’s short, we can’t find any runner that comes close to his class.

2. Southern Legend (Best Each Way – $7.50) Bet @ Sportsbet

Nice odds for a runner that doesn’t know how to run a bad race. He comes off five consecutive placings and three of those came behind the favourite.

The eight-year-old continues to run well and although he’ll need to lift to score an upset, he is a solid top-two contender.

Punters should get good place odds with the two dividends.

3. Ka Ying Star ($7.50) Bet @ Sportsbet

The Tony Cruz-trained six-year-old comes off a win at Sha Tin and although only a graded race, it should give him confidence.

He is a seven-time winner from 31 starts that finished only a length behind Golden Sixty in The Steward’s Cup three back.

If he gets the right run in transit, Ka Ying Star could push them close.

4. Mighty Giant ($13) Bet @ Sportsbet

Mighty Giant is another last-start winner that defeated Southern Legend by a half-length. There is nothing wrong with that form and punters shouldn’t overlook that form.

The five-year-old owns seven wins and four placings from 15 starts, so he rarely runs a bad race and he enters trifecta calculations.

The inside draw is ideal and he has plenty of upside.

5. More Than This (Best Roughie – $12) Bet @ Sportsbet

More Than This comes off back-to-back placings and he finished third behind Mighty Giant last time out.

It is a good form guide for this contest and although yet to win from four attempts this preparation, he is a seven-time winner from 19 starts.

Punters should respect that form.

6. Healthy Happy ($34) Bet @ Sportsbet

Mixing its form and he would need to improve significantly to beat this field. He was no match for Sky Darci last start and we don’t think that’s the best form.
