2021 Magic Millions 3yo Guineas Tips

Magic Millions 3YO Guineas Best Bet - Away Game

After taking out the 2020 Magic Millions 2YO Classic, the Ciaron Maher & David Eustace-trained filly is set to embark on completing the rich double by taking out the 2021 Magic Millions 3YO Guineas.

Completing one of the most amazing two-year-old seasons to date, Away Game narrowly missed placing in the Blue Diamond Stakes, finished second in the Golden Slipper and finished fifth in the Group One Sangster against the older mares.

Following a hiccup throughout the spring kept her off the track, there were plenty of doubters on whether or not she would return as a three-year-old, however, those critics were mostly silenced when making a brilliant return at Doomben first-up.

Charging away down the straight, Away Game was only nailed in the final stride by the star Queensland filly and set to make immense improvement second-up, is the best bet for this feature.

Magic Millions 3YO Guineas Next Best Bet - Isotope

The star Queensland filly is a well deserved favourite off consecutive emphatic victories wins, however, the question surrounding Isotope remains; will she run out the 1400m?

Boasting impressive form lines including splitting Rothfire and Wild Ruler during the winter carnival, the Tony Gollan-trained filly by Deep Field has been unbelievable in her last two starts.

After missing the start by three-lengths and narrowly going down on resumption, Isotope bounced back to thrash the girls at Doomben before beating up on the boys as well third-up, chasing down Away Game from an impossible position.

If the race was over 1200m you would be almost prepared to declare her the winner, however, with a month between runs and a question mark surrounding 1400m, Isotope will have to be at her best to take out the Guineas.

Magic Millions 3YO Guineas Value Bet - Apache Chase

Whilst the quality of opposition weren’t up to the standard of Away Game and Isotope during his win in the Group Three Vo Rogue, Apache Chase boasts an exciting racing style which will give him every chance.

A bold, strong striding type who loves to roll along on speed, the Desleigh Forster-trained gelding travelled beautifully throughout his win in the Vo Rogue at Eagle Farm, holding off Gotta Kiss by two-lengths.

A winner of three races from seven starts, all of his wins have come at 1400m or beyond and is one of the few horses in the field who has no doubts over the trip.

Although he will have to turn around a three-length deficit on Isotope and Away Game following the last time he met the pair, he can give a sight up front at a double figure quote.
