Gold Coast - Race 4 2:00pm AEDT

No. 3 Kiku

Kiku is having her second run back and appears well-placed in a quality edition of the Fillies and Mares race.

The Zoustar mare was only run down over the final 50m by Group 1 winner Kementari first-up in The Buffering, and while she does have some work to do from the wide gate, it should help her to get back and run on.

The Chris Waller-trained four-year-old contested much tougher races than this during the spring, and with a strong record to her name second-up, she’s good value in a very open race.

Gold Coast - Race 6 3:15pm AEDT

No. 4 Eleven Eleven

Eleven Eleven has found the winner’s circle on Magic Millions Day in each of the past two years.

He won this same race last year by a narrow margin over Soxagon and looks a live chance to defend his crown in the Magic Millions Cup coming off a freshen-up.

The son of Fastnet Rock won The Warra two back at Kembla Grange and can be forgiven on his latest run in the Razor Sharp at Randwick from the wide gate.

Gold Coast - Race 7 4:00pm AEDT

No. 9 Coolangatta

There’s no question Ciaron Maher and David Eustace’s undefeated filly Coolangatta is the horse to beat in this year’s Magic Millions 2YO Classic.

The daughter of Written Tycoon put the writing on the wall on debut at Randwick when she took out the Group 3 Gimcrack Stakes by over three lengths, and then proved it was no fluke by winning the BJ McLachlan at Doomben first-up on Boxing Day.

James McDonald has been responsible for both of those wins and the pair are impossible to fault.

Gold Coast - Race 8 4:45pm AEDT

No. 3 King Of Sparta

This is an outstanding edition of the Magic Millions 3YO Guineas with a handful of winning chances.

King Of Sparta presents second-up after making up enormous ground to run third in the Gosford Guineas last month.

He’ll need a touch of luck from the wide draw, but the way he finished off when fresh suggested he’ll see out his first look at 1400m. Look for him to be doing his best work late once again.
