Magic Millions 3yo Form Guide & Tips
1. Dubious ($19) Bet Now
Dubious has the talent to win a race like this but he can be hard to trust. He gets the services of James McDonald, which will help, but it might not be enough.
Punters are getting good odds and he has experience running second on this track.
2. Alligator Blood (Best Bet – $1.70) Bet Now
The best horse in this race and the winner of seven from eight starts has been hammered in betting.
He finished second in the Caulfield Guineas behind Super Seth and he has gone unbeaten in two runs since.
Might need some luck from the draw but has a load of talent.
3. Hightail ($17) Bet Now
He returned to form with a win at Gosford last start and that was an encouraging effort going forward.
He’s a three-time winner that gets Hugh Bowman in the saddle and he is good enough to run well at odds here.
Gets every chance from the draw.
4. Diamond Thunder ($15) Bet Now
Five-time winner from eight starts and he still has plenty of improvement to come.
He was a little disappointing last time out when finishing fourth at Eagle Farm and he’s going to struggle from barrier 20.
A lot of luck will be needed so it could pay to put him to the side.
5. Exhilarates ($15) Bet Now
Exhilarates looked to have a big future early on but her most recent efforts have been perplexing.
She should have been more competitive against that level of opposition and although she won the 2YO Classic last year, per form has taken a downward turn.
Unbeaten on the track so that has to be respected.
6. Superium (Best Roughie – $23) Bet Now
He may have been beaten by Embracer last start but Superium has plenty to offer in a race like this.
The gelding gets every chance off the inside draw and we’re expecting Nash Rawiller to ride the speed and be tough to hold out.
Punters are getting great value odds.
7. King of Hastings ($19) Bet Now
He’s a professional type with three wins and three second placings from seven starts. That form has come in Melbourne and it should stack up nicely here.
King of Hastings is too good to completely overlook and he could add some value for first-four punters.
8. Profit ($19) Bet Now
Yet to finish worse than second in five career starts. He was good enough to finish second behind Alligator Blood last start, albeit two lengths behind.
Only has improvement to come and he could provide some profit to punters. Include in multiples.
9. Eleven Eleven ($31) Bet Now
Consistent type that has finished in the money in eight of his 11 starts.
Will be finding it tough to win from barrier 21 and that could put pay to his chances.
10. Leviathan (Best Each Way – $15) Bet Now
Peter and Paul Snowden lines up the three-year-old gelding that scored a quality win at Randwick last start.
He owns a second placing behind Funstar and although he’ll need some luck from barrier 14, he has plenty of upside.
Could run a big race and generous odds.
11. Star Surprise ($26) Bet Now
Star Surprise has three wins from five starts and he has shown good ability in Melbourne.
Going the other way around could be tough for the son of Sidereus and he’s going to need luck from barrier 19.
Talented but wait for a better race.
12. Scout ($71) Bet Now
Good enough to win three consecutive races this campaign before running into some hot fields.
This is harder and the odds reflect its ability.
13. The Executioner ($201) Bet Now
The three-year-old colt doesn’t have much going in its favour. Didn’t fire a shot last time out and the odds reflect his chances.
Shouldn’t be troubling many of these in the run to the line.
14. Oh Five Glory ($201) Bet Now
She has won only one of her 13 starts and it would be a massive upset if she was to go close here.
Drawing barrier 18 just adds to the negatives surrounding her chances.
15. It’s Kind of Magic ($9.50) Bet Now
Two wins from four starts and it has been the best-backed runner in the field.
The filly by So You Think scored easily at Moonee Valley last start and she looks like a real up-and-comer.
Carrying only 54kg is ideal and she has drawn to get a good run. Follow any strong betting moves come race day.
16. Howwonderfullifeis ($201) Bet Now
Scored two wins to kick-start this season but has gone off the rails since. Has talent at lower levels but this is too hard.
17. Let It Pour ($71)
18. Gala Miss ($201)
19. Designated ($201)
20. Badoosh ($201)
