Wyong for their Magic Millions raceday this Thursday in the Sydney region. We have seven races on the card here highlighted by the 2yo classic and the 3yo / 4yo plate. The 2yo race is very intriguing with some good trailers coming in, horses who have had the run leading in, and Bondi who comes out of the Breeders Plate, what a race it is. Rail true, track good.

No3 DEVIL’S LUCK has been trialing in good order coming into the debut run here and looks to have been well conditioned with the 1030m trial leading in. Shinn on from a good gate suits.
No2 AQUA D’IVINA is also in on Wednesday with no indication of where she is to run, she is my best bet on Wednesday and looks much better suited there. But if she runs here, HTB again.
No1 AUERBACH has had to go back to the trials after pulling up with an issue last start when an even money fav. The trial was good enough and he looks back on track.
No7 VOODOO LADY (BEST ROUGHIE) comes out of a good race on debut where the form has already stood up. The trials coming in have been good.
VALUE RUNNER: No7 VOODOO LADY
No4 THE IRON MAIDEN has done a good job winning two of the last three. The form around is good enough, and this isn’t the best race.
No1 MR SMART should be suited coming back in distance here, he gets a good jockey change with Avdulla taking the ride here.
No5 GHETTO BOY pulled up with an issue last start when fav. He should be able to run well here.
No7 BILLY CAN won the maiden well last start in very good order. He gets a good run from the gate and should run well up in grade.
VALUE RUNNER: No5 GHETTO BOY
No6 CONSIDER IT DONE was very well backed on debut at Geelong. Now in Sydney with Hawkes, she has trialed in good order coming into this and looks hard to beat.
No8 SUN VALLEY is another good trailer coming into the debut run, she looks well educated and should run well.
No4 AUCHENTOMAN was horrible in the first prep in good races, after trialing well. The trials coming into this have been good, one more chance to show something.
No3 POLAR STAR comes out of some good races in the first prep and has been trialing up well.
VALUE RUNNER: No4 AUCHENTOMAN
No1 ARBEITSAM (NEXT BEST BET) in the best way of saying this, is a certainty at the weight scale of this race. If this was a handicap he would have to give Redouble 8.5kg and Hutcho 33.5kgs. The trials have been good, he will roll forward and though 1200m is short of his best. His class should get him home here.
No2 REDOUBLE in essence drops in grade here to a set weights race. He is the second best horse in this race and is in form.
No6 SINGLE BULLET copped a huge check early in running last start and that cost him any chance, forget that race and go off previous form.
No7 WILD HEART is the wild card here, his form is quite good and has trialed in good order coming in.
VALUE RUNNER: No7 WILD HEART
No7 BARBEQUE resumes here, and is a horse with a hell of a lot of ability, and finds a good race to resume here. He gets a good run from the gate and will be hard to beat.
No3 FINAL TRICK was good enough last start in a better race and now drops in grade here.
No2 HAMMOND LANE has been going well enough as of late and comes from a good race last start.
No9 DELADIES BOY gets into this with no weight, he has been trialing well enough. This is short of his best, but he will run through the line.
VALUE RUNNER: No6 FINAL TRICK
No2 BONDI (BEST BET) comes out of the best 2yo race this season in the Breeders Plate. He has trialled up in fantastic fashion coming into this fresh run here, and gets a good run behind the speed on the map. He is the one I want to be with, with that Performer form line.
No8 TERMINOLOGY has been trialing in awesome style coming into the debut run, no idea how good she is. We will see how good she is here.
No1 JONKER won in super-fast time on debut at Newcastle. He meets a good field here, and I think he could be a speedy squib. We will see how good he is here.
No3 CHARGE will be charging through the line here. If they overdo it in front he is the one who will be coming at them late.
VALUE RUNNER: No3 CHARGE
No2 CONNOISSEUR didn’t get the best of rides last start, in a race which has held up well. The trial coming in was good.
No1 GORESBRIDGE has race fitness on his side here, and was just touched off last start. He will give them something to catch here.
No8 KOONUNGA gets a soft run on the map here just behind the speed. Shinn will need to be at his best here.
No3 TSWALU has been trialing in good order coming into the fresh run here. The form around her is good.
VALUE RUNNER: No8 KOONUNGA
