Magic Millions 3YO Guinea Betting Tips
Like the Magic Millions 2 YO Classic, the Magic Millions 3YO guineas are also part of the Magic Millions race day. Key preliminary events for this race include the 1200m edition gold slab held in December and the Group 3 1350m Vo Rogue slab held two weeks earlier. The latest runners to complete Guinea’s Magic Millions 3 YO double game and Vo Rogue Plate are Boumsara in 2018-19 and Pierata in 2017-18.
Good betting tips for Magic Millions 3-year-old guineas include looking for fit 3-year-old runners from the Interstate stables, as horses from the Melbourne and Sydney stables have dominated race results in the past. However, the 2020 and 2019 winners, Alligator Blood and Boomsara, were locals.
Winners with the previous group status win records, especially in races with the same distance, have a higher chance of winning. The latest favorite to win the race was Alligator Blood in 2020. The runner won at odds of $1.8 but was stripped of the title due to a positive smear. The last upset happened in 2021 when Aim Winning won by $31 odds.
