This Saturday marks the Magic Millions Race Day at the Gold Coast – the richest summer meeting. One feature race taking place is the Magic Millions 3YO Guineas (1400m) with a prizemoney totaling $1 million.
A capacity field of 16 three-year-olds plus four emergencies accepted for the race, four of which are offering single figure odds in the betting market at Ladbrokes.com.au.
Hijack Hussy is the $3.50 firm favourite to win the 2015 Magic Millions Guineas following a second placing in the Group 3 Vo Rogue Plate (1300m) at the course proper on December 27. However with such a large field of runners, the filly could get lost in the crowd.

#15 Aerobar ($8.50)
The Gerald Ryan-trained filly has finished in the first three in half of her eight career starts and is an impressive last start winner of the Wyong Magic Millions 3YO Stakes (1200m) on December 18, which is often touted as the ideal lead-up race. The filly has had her share of black-type racing experience but failed to make an impression in any but the Listed Lonhro Plate (1100m) back in March. Will get a good start from barrier four, carrying the minimum weight of 55kg.
#10 Mywayorthehighway ($21)
Mick Mair’s filly is offering punters a great price in the Magic Millions Guineas at $21 to win or $6 to place. Mywayorthehighway has won two of her five career starts and placed in another two. Won her maiden at the beginning of December before causing a massive upset to win the Vo Rogue Plate ahead of favourite Hijack Hussy at a price of $81. She should not be ruled out after scoring a jump from barrier eight.
#11 Hijack Hussy ($3.50)
Tony Gollan’s hopeful is a great option to round out your trifecta given she will jump from barrier six with Timothy Bell to ride. Hijack Hussy has placed in seven of her nine career starts, the highlight of which was winning the Listed Lexus Hybrid Plate (1400m) during the spring. Has won her two starts over 1400 metres and has proven successful over the Gold Coast track in the past.
With such a big field set to run in the 2015 Magic Millions Guineas your picks may differ from those above. Either way make sure to back your winner at Ladbrokes.com.au because you could win shares in a Peter Moody-trained racehorse just by placing a minimum $5 bet!
