Magic Millions 3YO Guineas 2024 Preview

Track: Soft Weather: Fine

Chrysaor and Cifrado meet again. The latter getting the better of the former last time they met and little is likely to seperate them again. Abounding has ben constant to date and should get a nice tow into things. Sydney Bowler brings in some different form and will be well fancied in this while Royal Tribute is starting to put it all together and will take some beating in this suitable affair.

1. Cifrado (7)

Good winner last start and meets a few of these again. Should get a nice tow into it from there and is a major player.
