2019 Magic Millions 3YO Guineas Form Guide & Tips
Boomsara (Best Each Way – $4.80) – BET NOW
Booming win at Doomben last start when scoring by 4.5 lengths and he would be much shorter in the market had he not drawn barrier 18.
The son of Spirit of Boom capped off some inconsistent form but he’s talented at best and with any luck in running, he should have too much class for the majority of this field.
Paquirri ($71) – BET NOW
Fourth in the Gosford Guineas last start as a $21 chance and we’re not surprised to see his odds balloon for this.
Only one win from 10 starts isn’t going to cut it in this grade and we’re expecting the colt to struggle over the concluding stages.
Bondi (Best Each Way – $10) – BET NOW
Third behind Redouble last start when carrying no weight, but that’s open-class form and he will enjoy running against his own age.
His run for second behind Problem Solver prior to that was classy and we’re expecting that form to line up well for this.
Nice odds on offer.
The Fire Trap ($15) – BET NOW
Looked above average when winning his first two starts but it has been slim pickings since. He did improve slightly to run fifth behind Boomsara last start but he looks a little one-paced at present.
Chance to run in the money with further improvement.
Star Fall ($12) – BET NOW
Back-to-back winner at Pakenham and Caulfield with both wins coming by over a length. The natural pacemaker has shown good ability throughout its career but he will need all that pace to cross from barrier 17.
Had he drawn the rail, his odds would be cut in half.
Smart Elissim ($26) – BET NOW
Has shown good ability in Melbourne and Sydney but the lack of recent winning form is a problem. He finished third behind Hang Man at Caulfield last start and that form might stack up well later this season, but he looks held at this level.
Does have experience in stakes race, however, so don’t discount.
Outback Barbie (Best Bet – $2.50) – BET NOW
Endured a luckless run last start behind Boomsara but she’s a quality filly and she can turn the tables this time around.
Tony Gollan trains the two-time winner which finished second behind Zoustyle in the Gold Edition Stakes two back and that form is going to stack up nicely for this.
$2.50 is about as short as we’d suggest taking but she’s the best horse in this field and she’s going to get a dream run from barrier three.
Granny Red Shoes ($21) – BET NOW
Fell in the lead-up race behind Boomsara and that’s not going to do her confidence any good. Her form prior wasn’t all the flash and she’s not showing the same turn-of-foot as she did last season.
$21 is about right.
Persuader ($26) – BET NOW
Failed to fire last start but was inconvenienced by the fallen runner. Win prior in the Twilight Glow Stakes at Sandown was a better form guide and her best form could see her fight out the finish.
Needs plenty of things to go her way but she’s not the worst pick at the odds.
Zizzis ($21) – BET NOW
Fifth behind Clipper in much easier company last start and although she’ll be better for the right-handed run, that form won’t cut it here.
Sixth behind Persuader two back and they’re paying the same odds. No value with her price.
Plumaro ($41) – BET NOW
Scored a narrow win over Barefoot three back before running two consecutive ninths. Those came behind Our Crown Mistress and Boomsara.
Might be better suited on rain-affected tracks.
Light Up The Room ($16) – BET NOW
Consistent type which ran third behind Boomsara and that form is going to stack up for this race. The three-year-old by So You Think should enjoy the slight rise in distance and she hasn’t missed a win or placing from six starts.
Has place claims in what should be a tightly-contested race.
Malahide ($26) – BET NOW
Looked good winning her first two career start but she hasn’t done much since, including a fifth placing behind Outback Barbie when running 3.9 lengths away.
Bred to get a little more distance and punters are better off to wait.
Sugar Sizzle ($151) – BET NOW
Experienced winner of four from 13 starts, including three of her last five. Those have been against inferior fields and this is a bit of a stab in the dark by connections.
$151 is about right.
Barefoot ($19) – BET NOW
Might attract some attention at big odds following her 3.5-length win at Gold Coast last time out. That came against average opposition at it was run over 1800m.
Scored its last run at this distance and it’s not the worst long-shot chance.
Unconditional ($51) – BET NOW
Third behind the unbeaten Snow Valley last start but it looks held at this level.
Doss – $81
Say I Cee You – $201
Magic Fox – $201
Lancaster Bomber – $101
