The Magic Millions sales are well underway but the big raceday event is on Saturday (if the track holds up under the weather).
There are a couple of races that punters will be casting a keen eye on with some impressive runners coming up for the event.
The horse I want to back in this race might not even be racing. Intencion has been the most impressive runner in my books and it currently the 2ns emergency. He was hoping to win on Saturday at Randwick but his run home wasn’t quite good enough and only came up with a 2nd place.
The favourite at $4.40 is Top Drop. This horse has barrier 13 and hasn’t given me any great certain feel about it. My pick is still Intencion at $6.00 if he runs. If he doesn’t I won’t be betting on this race. The other horses in single figure odds like Torio’s Quest and Celtic Dancer are there, but aren’t standouts either.
Tip: Intencion at $6.00 on Sportsbet if he runs.
Karuta Queen is the deserved favourite here. Earlier in the week you could get $3.60 about it but has now shortened into $3.15 after the barrier draw (10). This is a very strong race with the two horses I think are in with a shot being Schiffer (7.00) and Fast and Sexy ($21.00) who had a massive run on the weekend. Pepper jet is also in there with a good chance at $5.50.
The full race card and betting options are available on the official Sportsbet website.
Tip: Can’t look past Karuta Queen here. You can get $3.15 about it on Centrebet.
