Previously, we have seen stars such as Gold Edition, Alligator Blood and Pierata both take out this event, so although it's a restricted affair, this race is generally of a very high standard.

Chrysaor heads a competitive market with ChaseBet, where $5 is available for the favourite.

2024 Magic Millions 3YO Guineas Tips


2024 Magic Millions 3YO Guineas Best Bet - Cifrado

He was underrated over the Brisbane Carnival as a late two-year-old, recording back-to-back Group 2 victories before his sixth of 17 finish in the Group 1 JJ Atkins.

Cifrado defeated Chrysaor (fav) by just under a length in that feature and the Rex Lipp-trained galloper went past the same rival when taking out the Vo Rogue Plate.

He has been building towards that December 30 outing well, with his only flop coming second-up at Listed level against older rivals, where a slow recovery was noted post-race.

Although he's likely to settle off the speed, barrier seven does give them a few more options early and if you ignore the November 11 effort, then he arguably brings the best form.
2024 Magic Millions 3YO Guineas Next Best Bet - Sydney Bowler

While he has shown tactical versatility, which was evident at start three when settling on the speed over 1300m, barrier 17 still isn't ideal for the unbeaten Sydney Bowler.

Another query is that he's now deep into what is still his first prep, however, there was good depth to the Randwick affair he last contested and that was a soft win in the end.

Also, the form has stood up nicely from his Newcastle maiden, which he bolted in with on debut, with both placegetters breaking through at their next appearances.

Class-wise, it's a very competitive Magic Millions 3YO Guineas field, however, there are not many stars among them and Sydney Bowler could simply be the best horse here.
2024 Magic Millions 3YO Guineas Value Bet - Veecee

Despite enjoying success in the 2YO Classic, the Maher & Eustace stable is searching for their first Guineas win and their representative this year is sneaking under the radar.

It's been all about getting the son of Capitalist to peak on this day and the prep has reflected that, with the colt completing some modest work ahead of his Caulfield resumption.

He's bounced off that eye-catching third on December 16 to complete a rather slick workout at Warwick Farm on January 2 and the rise to 1400m second-up looks ideal.

Over the last few years, Michael Dee has been one of the most improved jockeys in Australia and he's striking at better than 23% this season for the Maher & Eustace yard.
