MAGIC MILLIONS 3yr old Guineas 1400m


There are plenty of these going ok but you can’t go any better than PIERATA is going, the horse is simply airborne. The win the other day was one that just stamped him an extremely high class colt and to be honest a repeat performance means he should just be winning. Gate 1 is ideal as he can find a spot and the fact the track is likely to be hard it shouldn’t be a negative (when there is moisture in the track they seem to race off the fence). Brown will just look to keep him out of trouble and probably get off the fence before the corner if possible. With a trouble free run it’s hard to see any turn the tables on him.

Of those that have been taking on PIERATA I feel GOODFELLA is the one who hasn’t had much luck and the latest effort when he went back from the gate and covered ground on  the corner was very good. He was strong late behind the fav and gets to 1400m on the bigger track. At $11 he goes in trifecta’s for sure.

Of the locals we always respect CELLARGIRL and SHOGUN SUN but their returns have been mixed. CELLARGIRL $34 hasn’t been anywhere near her best being beaten over 6L both runs, however she did rattle off the 2nd quickest split between the 400-200m last start behind the winner, maybe she just needed the run and this is GF day. SHOGUN SUN was very good fresh but looked a bit flat and was outsprinted by one who isn’t running here. May be spot on for this and $26 also some value.

ARRESTAR is the other local that I will throw in exotics, he is $301 in some markets but the Dunn stable have a terrible fresh record but their 2nd up stats are amazing. This horse would have been set for this race and a recent trial would have him cherry ripe. Handy enough to run well here.

Of the interstate horses who we haven’t seen up here BEL SONIC and SASSO CORBARO look most likely. BEL SONIC has returned with two on the trot, he gets back and can rattle off some very good splits. This a step up but going in the right direction. SASSO CORBARO would have loved a better gate but she has simply put a couple of fields away in two strides recently and gone on to win well, that’s the sign of a very good horse and with that turn of foot she is sure to make her presence felt in this! CALCULATED has returned with big weights and may have also needed the runs, gets Bowman which also helps. SMARTEDGE was disappointing until the blinkers went on, horror gate doesn’t help but has Angland on and sure to be ridden quiet.

Really liked WILD HEARTs win at Wyong where very strong late. You can make a case each time he has been rolled. Most starts were on wet tracks or he didn’t have the blinkers. He got the blinkers when beaten by Shogun Sun but that was again on soft ground. This time in he got a good track and the blinkers for the first time and won the Millions race at Wyong where he was strong late running over Single Bullet. Can sit midfield and be strong late.

*Cracking race, I can’t put anything on top of the fav but good race for exotics.
