1. Alpine Edge
This son of Better Than Ready is unbeaten in his two career starts to date. After leading all the way at Eagle Farm on debut he showed good versatility to be able to sit midfield and finish over the top last time out. A major player.
2. Finance Tycoon
Unbeaten since the blinkers were applied. I like that he has run and won already on this track. The negative is the wide gate.
3. Readily Availabull
Impressive winner of the Ballarat Magic Millions in November. Has since won a trial at Randwick. Draws a nice gate for this.
Disappointed after starting short odds at Eagle Farm on Boxing Day. Much improved effort last time when only narrowly beaten behind Finance Tycoon. Can sit handy from barrier one and the Bowman booking is a positive.
Kicked off its career with a debut win at Doomben on October 24. Well held last start behind Finance Tycoon. Can’t recommend.
6. Baby Wong
This son of Press Statement has been close up at all 4 runs but is yet to win. Perhaps the addition of the blinkers and the booking of Nash Rawiller can make the difference.
7. Mishani Scandal
Only win came at Toowoomba. Outclassed.
Rambeau has shown speed out of the barriers at all 3 of his starts so expecting him to settle in the top 4 or 5. But he needs to improve many lengths to be a factor here.
9. Fake Love
Fake Love was an impressive debut winner at her home track Caulfield in October. She has since ran fourth at Flemington and second at Eagle Farm. Barrier 20 looks a massive concern for her.
10. Mura Mura
This well bred daughter of Not A Single Doubt was purchased for $650,000 at the Magic Million Sales. Yet to win but sees a good track for the first time which may help her chances.
11. She’s All Class
This Chris Waller trained filly was an impressive winner of the Wyong Magic Millions at start number 2. She has had a soft trial in between runs and if James McDonald can find some cover from a wide barrier she is one of the major players.
12. Swift Witness
Gai Waterhouse is attempting to win her fifth Magic Millions with Swift Witness. This horse bolted in by 3 lengths at his last start and has an advantage over many of these having raced at this track before. Barrier 11 looks perfect. A key winning hope.
13. You’ll Be Mist
You’ll Be Mist has won 2 of her 4 starts. She is deep into her first preparation but has been given a month between runs for this. A big winner last start and a knock out hope here.
14. Miss Hipstar
Another one of these with a wide gate to contend with. She won her first two races from the front before getting a long way back behind race favourite Swift Witness last start. Needs luck but not out of it.
15. Queen Of Wizardry
Hit the line hard to score at her only career start and is likely to be suited by a frantic pace. Each Way.
16. Princess Bojack
Beaten a long way last start. Not for me.
17. Ranch Hand
Won by 3.3 lengths on debut at Warwick Farm. Then was upset as a very short favourite at Eagle Farm. He is not out of this.
18. Ruby Kisses
Safely held behind Four Moves Ahead at Warwick Farm. Needs to improve.
19. Mishani Enchanted
Finished 4.6 lengths from the winner in the Gold Pearl. Looking elsewhere.
20. Win Burn
Win Burn finished off well to run second at her last start and she has the advantage of having had her last run at 1200m. Knock out.
21. Glorious Ruby
Debuted in the Gold Pear running second after the punters backed her $201 into $61. Looks unlikely to secure a run but a knock out chance if she does.
