build up to Magic Millions’ $10 million raceday intensifies at Doomben
on Saturday with a string of feature races to be contested.
While the depth of the fields is strong it could be the weather that is a major player with forecasts for South East Queensland predicting widespread rain.
The listed Phelan Ready Stakes and listed Calaway Gal Stakes will help shape markets for the $2 million The Star Gold Coast Magic Millions 2YO Classic. Following Wednesday’s impressive win at Wyong, Unite and Conquer is the $4.50 favourite with BetEasy.
Tony McEvoy won last year’s Classic with Sunlight and he is hoping another Zoustar youngster Sun City can book his place in the field as he steps out favourite in the Phelan Ready Stakes. Sun City was second on debut to Unite and Conquer when he made ground from well back in the field in the listed Maribyrnong Trial at Flemington.
Unbeaten filly Courseshewill will be out to strengthen her Millions claims in the Calaway Gal amongst other Classic entrants Country Cocktail, Gala Miss and Boomstress.
Across the rest of the card star mare Houtzen is an odds on favourite for the Bribie Quality, Zoustyle heads Chess Star and Outback Barbie in the Gold Edition market and Victorem and I’m a Rippa (pictured) are leading contenders in the Lough Neagh.
The $10 million The Star Gold Coast Magic Millions Raceday is to be held at the Gold Coast Turf Club on Saturday, January 12.
