We head to the Gold Coast for their big day being the Magic Millions.
Think there is fantastic value still in the feature race. Sunlight has looked brilliant in both runs from a spell. Unlike the main opponents, she has had the recent experience on the track and carries the same form as Houtzen last season.
Sustained speed wins this race on a good track and she has shown that so far which is no surprise given her breeding. Both parents were fast horses. The question about the barrier probably just adds to the price. It didn’t hurt Houtzen last year.
The 3yo Guineas race is a fascinating race with the short favourite Pierata drawing the inside which may not be the best.
For that reason, and given outsiders have a good history, taking a value runner with Shogun Sun. He was excellent first up around the main chances and then from a poor gate got too far back.
Settling about midfield here, just hoping he can be close enough. Should any rain arrive, that would be a perfect scenario.
