Gold Coast Tips for January 15


Race 1 - 12.15pm Magic Millions Maiden Plate Tips


Selections: 20,9,3,2.

20. PRINCE AMONGST MEN is due for a win very soon after a string of placings, including finishing second to Manhood last start who does look above average. Barrier four is the perfect gate where he can sit somewhere near the pace and show his competitiveness. They are all maidens for a reason, with no standouts.

9. Warmth has finished second at all three career starts, but has won two of her three trials leading into ths prep.

3. Jackson On Time has raced at stakes level in his past two starts and hes been somwhat in the market at each start. This is clearly a step back in grade.

2. Chart Buster brings up some handy Victorian form for the Lindsay Park team.

Race 2 - 12.50pm Magic Millions Open Tips


Selections: 6,2,4,3.

6. DZSENIFER was a winner two back and looked the winner in The Wave before being nutted late in the piece. On a firmer surface, this bloke looks well favoured to turn the tables on Wheelhouse who loves a bit of sting out of the ground. The stable have aimed high with him in recent starts and this could be that big race win.

2. Wheelhouse won The Wave nicely last week, racing in great heart and if he can hold a margin on Dzsenifer, then he is the winner, but $2.50 is short to find out.

4. Willo Titto is a two-time winner at the Gold Coast and will be ready to peak now fourth-up from a spell.

3. Love Tap will be somewhere around the pace as usual and gets a weight swing on the top two selections.

Race 3 - 1.25pm Audi Centre Magic Millions Subzero Tips


Selections: 1,2,5,7.

1. PARRY SOUND was a strong winner at Randwick and looks well placed to win again on Saturday. Although going up 6kg in weight, this race is of much less quality than what he faced last start and now gets Australia's best jockey in James McDonald aboard. Expect him to settle midfield from the gate and prove too strong late.

2. Wapiti is so consistent, but is favoured on ground that is slightly softer than what he gets on Saturday. Not expecting the 2400m to pull him up, which is a plus.

5. Outlandos loves to run well without winning, but just not sure about him over 2400m.

7. Confrontational loomed in The Wave last week but just did not finish his race off. No issues with him up in trip.

Race 4 - 2.00pm Tab Magic Millions F&m Tips


Selections: 7,10,1,8.

7. SNAPDANCER placed in this event last year and looks hard to beat second-up, while there's still some freshness in her legs. She was only beaten late at Randwick last start, but will improve from that effort greatly, with a second-up record of two wins and a placing from three goes. She makes her own luck on the speed.

10. Lady Of Luxury showed enormous strength to win last week, last on the turn before going in and out of paths to win. Craig Williams may need to produce something similar again.

1. Krone won this race last year and looked good first-up on a heavy deck. She will have improved greatly from that outing.

8. Brookspire looked to have the race shot to pieces last start at Gosford but seemed to race a little flat.

Race 5 - 2.35pm It's Live In Qld Magic Millions Snippets Tips


Selections: 6,14,2,7.

6. AWAY GAME is what the Magic Millions is all about; winning the 2YO Classic and starting as one of the favourites in the Guineas. She was super first-up behind Marabi, closing off hard to just miss. That form is head and shoulders above the rest and if she can get a touch of luck from gate one, I don't see anything beating her.

14. Isotope returns to the races off a long break and based off that in a race where horses have been set to peak, I am not sure I want to be on her at the short quote and the market will tell her tale.

2. Baller is another consistent one who does not know how to run poorly. He gets the run of the race from gate two.

7. Fituese is a first-up specialist with four wins from five goes.

Race 6 - 3.15pm Magic Millions Cup Tips


Selections: 7,4,1,3.

7. NUDGE was our blackbooker from last start, flashing home at Doomben to pinch third. You get the feeling she has been set to peak in this race and from gate 12, she becomes very dangerous as she will have room to the outside of horses where she likes to be. Although facing the boys, she is stillGroup One class

4. Eleven Eleven won this race last year and the Magic Millions 3YO Guineas two years ago. Forget the last run, he is a horses for courses type of runner.

1. Kementari or Special-K as he is known, got the job done last start on a wet deck and the punters knew, tightening his price from $13 to $4.20.

3. Beau Rossa is a WFA Group One runner-up, who has been set to peak for this race by the Will Clarken stable.

Race 7 - 4.00pm $2M THE STAR GOLD COAST MAGIC MILLIONS 2YO CLASSIC Tips


Selections: 9,3,11,5.

9. COOLANGATTA was enormous on debut and cemented herself as the number one two-year-old in Australia, then backed that up with an easy McLachlan win where she was not screwed down. Barrier 13 looks a little awkward on paper, but the stable have showed no concern, so if they give it the tick, I will too.

3. Stupendo won a strong winner on debut that played a little bit of Dodgem Cars last week. I don't like the wide gate, but if he is in touch with the field on the bend he has the turn-of-foot to at least go with the favourite.

11. Russian Conquest is yet to be seen in Queensland, but has been so strong in her two career wins to date. No shock to see her measure up.

5. Golden Artie would have looked at the forecast of rain earlier in the week and been bucking around with excitement, but Saturday is expected to be warmer as we approach race day.

Race 8 - 4.45pm $2M GOLD COAST MAGIC MILLIONS 3YO GUINEAS Tips


Selections: 5,3,2,1.

5. FAR TOO EASY has been my horse for this race for a while now. Barrier 15 is a negative, but he can find a midfield position and be within striking distance. He was buffeted around heavily last start, yet still managed to pick himself back up and run through the line over 1200m. The 1400m is his journey and this is his race. A great each-way play.

3. King Of Sparta was great first-up in the Gosford Guineas and will only be improved. Good tracks do not hurt his chances and being set to peak here makes him a great pick in the race.

2. Jamaea is the filly in the race who has little luck when first-up last time in. She won at Group Two level second-up and was not too far from them in the Golden Rose. Elite form.

1. Bend The Knee is the improving type , ho won a much weaker race at Flemington, but has been set to run a big race here.

Race 9 - 5.20pm Racing Queensland Magic Millions Open Tips


Selections: 4,1,3,9.

4. MIAMI FLESIS had a shocking run last start on a heavy deck and tired late, so more than happy to forgive that and base my judgement on her Tatts Classic win two starts back. She finds firmer ground once again and is a winner here at the Gold Coast, so she looks the safe way to finish of Magic Millions Day.

1. The Odyssey won this race last year and arguably was in better form, but has only missed the placings here once in four goes and is a three-time winner at the track and trip. 

3. Wisdom Of Water promised a lot early on, but did not deliver. He won like a smart horse at Wyong last time and is a three-time winner here at Gold Coast.

9. Stuttering just missed The Odyssey in this race last year and can run another honest race.
