Magic Millions 3YO Guineas Tips

Gold Coast Magic Millions 3YO Guineas tips include backing in-form three-year-olds with black-type winning form on their record and those from interstate stables.

2018 Magic Millions 3YO Guineas Tips

Our Ladbrokes’ insider Gold Coast Magic Millions Guineas 2018 betting tips and exclusive summer racing selections will be detailed below the week of the race so stay tuned for the three-year-old Magic Millions Sales graduates to back and sack!

  • 1st: #15 SASSO CORBARO ($4.50)
  • 2nd: #1 PIERATA ($2.40)
  • 3rd: #17 I AM IMPINGE ($34)

SASSO CORBARO is the market mover and well-supported second elect backed in from $6 to $4.50. The Kris Lees-trained All Too Hard filly is after a fourth win on the trot and will relish coming right back to 54kg after carrying 58.5kg to a 3.3L win over 1300m at Randwick last time out. This is harder, but she is lightly-raced with plenty of improvement and will strike late from the wider gate. PIERATA is the hot favourite drawn the inside alley, but jockey Corey Brown will need to really be careful not to get caught-up from barrier one. Still, this Pierro colt is full of class and comes off the Vo Rogue Plate win. $500,000 bonus in his sights. I AM IMPINGE is a late inclusion after getting a run as the first emergency and looks way over the odds after the local Toby Edmonds-trained gelding ran fourth in the Vo Rogue.
