2019 Magic Millions 2YO Classic Form Guide & Tips
Unite And Conquer (Best Each Way – $6) – BET NOW
Has the best form coming into this race but also has been given a horror barrier draw of 18. The Hinchinbrook colt will need to show that electric pace to cross from out wide, but it’s not going to be easy in a hot race.
The Waterhouse/Bott-trained colt scored by 1.3 lengths over best bet Exhilarates last start and that form has since been franked. It’s a shame he’s drawn so wide but he should still run well with any luck in running.
The Odyssey ($21) – BET NOW
Had its chance to win at Gold Coast last start behind Exhilarates but couldn’t do enough to pick them up. Looked good prior to that when beating Sun City and Krameric.
That form would take him close but he is a risk at this level.
Yes Yes Yes ($8) – BET NOW
Yet to run right handed and that’s the big query, but there’s no denying his talent in Melbourne.
The Darren Weir-trained colt finished second on debut behind a nice type before rattling off two impressive wins at Flemington and Moonee Valley.
He has a turn of foot and that’s going to hold him in good stead for this.
Dubious ($5) – BET NOW
Has firmed in with bookmakers after the barrier draw and it’s hard to fault his form coming into this. The Not a Single Doubt colt won the Breeders’ Plate on debut before backing that up with a win at Eagle Farm last start.
He had every right to lose that race last time out but his class kicked in and showed why he’s being respected here.
Has speed to burn and should run close.
Sebrakate ($51) – BET NOW
Having his sixth start this preparation and he looks a touch below the best in this race. Looks like a nice Saturday type but his legs will be getting tired during his first preparation.
Hightail ($15) – BET NOW
Comes into this having scored a booming win at Randwick last start when cruising to victory by 2.3 lengths and he looks a nice type for the future.
The Snowden-trained gelding finished third behind Movie Role two back and that form looks to be good for this.
Nice chance at $15 and he should be fighting out the finish.
Czarson ($7.50) – BET NOW
Unbeaten after two runs and he scored a recent trial win at Warwick Farm when beating Unite And Conquer.
Could have slipped under the radar but punters have taken the odds on offer and having already beaten Exilarates by 2.17 lengths at Gosford, that form should stack up.
Unfortunately, he has drawn barrier 15 and it’s not easy from out there.
Exhilarates (Best Bet – $5.50) – BET NOW
Current equal favourite which showed them a clean pair of heels last start and she looks to have matured more than some of these.
The James Cummings-trained filly finished last of five runners on debut before running second behind Czarson and Unite And Conquer. That form bodes well for this and she improved significantly to win by 1.75 lengths at Gold Coast last start.
She cruised up to them and went whoosh, which is why she has so much support for the 2YO Classic.
Betaima ($41) – BET NOW
Fourth behind the best bet last start and the form out of that race should stack up but she will need to find four lengths.
Looks a nice open-class type but it would need to improve to run in the money here.
Champagne Boom ($18) – BET NOW
Looked the goods when winning on debut at Caulfield before struggling on a wet track on Melbourne Cup Day.
Only fourth behind Unite And Conquer in the Wyong Magic Millions and although she’s a classy filly, she might be held at this level.
Better Reflection ($15) – BET NOW
Unbeaten from two starts and she was also a trial winner prior to those wins. Scored by 5.75 lengths at Rockhampton before winning by 1.5 lengths at Doomben.
Tough to overlook winning form but she’s yet to be tested at a strong level. Interesting runner so watch for any late moves.
Girls Are Ready ($26) – BET NOW
Scored a two-length win over Sebrakate last start. That followed up from a 1.8-length win at Canterbury, so the form is good leading into this.
Unsure if Jess Taylor is the best jockey to have in the saddle for a high-pressure but she could be the story from the race.
Courseshewill ($101) – BET NOW
Scored back-to-back wins to open her career but has done little since rising in grade. Beat only one runner home last start and her odds reflect her winning chances.
Movie Role (Best Roughie – $15) – BET NOW
Dealt to her opposition last start at Randwick and if that’s any indication of her true ability, she should give punters a good sight in this.
She defeated the likes of Igniting and Hightail, which has subsequently won and with the right run in transit, she could be hitting the line harder than anything else.
$15 is a good value price.
Oh Five Glory ($81) – BET NOW
Form doesn’t stack up well for this. Second on debut behind a midweek type before winning at Doomben.
Ran sixth last start and would need a minor miracle to win.
Champagne Jet ($51) – BET NOW
Scored over Betaima on debut at Sunshine Coast before running third behind Oh Five Glory second up. That’s not hot form for this and she should struggle.
Gala Miss – $101
Krameric – $21
Rome – $11
Alburq – $101
Lubuk – $17
If they make the field, both Krameric and Rome represent winning chances.
