Race 1 Magic Millions Mdn Plate 1200m

Will be strong form race despite the time not strong. Warmth got the gun run and was just too good. Devils Throat was off the map and everything went wrong, big run. Ambitious Spirit wins a maiden next start, Sing a Love Song also. I will likely back every horse next start from this race.

Race 2 Magic Millions Qlty 1800m

Bigboyroy ran the into the ground giving nothing else a chance, he was underwhelming in Sydney but the fast track helped, big performace running the 14th F L200 of day after leading a fast tempo. Wheelhouse was ok, Love Tap probably not living up to early hype. Not a race worth following I suspect.

Race 3 $1M Audi Centre M.M. Subzero 2400m

Nice result with Navy Cross running them into the ground, the fast track and strong tempo helped enormously, good price also. Outlandos was good, do not like the distance race on MM day as a from reference.

Race 4 $1M Tab Magic Millions F&M 1300m

Even early speed suited Snapdancer, she had a sharp turn of foot to win easily. The race shape allowed Vulpine to hang on the 2nd, Salateen was sectionally very good late (3rd F L200 of meet) and Krone will improve again next start.

Race 5 $1M It's Live Qld M.M Snippets 1200m

Big training performance from Gollan to get Isotope to win FU after colic. She got a lovely ride and the sharp finish is still there (2nd F L200 of meet). Tycoonist was good late and appreciated the firm track, running the days FL200. Away Game was not as effective leading.

Race 6 $1M Magic Millions Cup (Rl) 1400m

Great finish in an even race. They went hard early and ran home in decent time giving nothing from the back a chance. Eleven Eleven makes it 3 MM wins, Holyfield was good but got a nice run, Apache Chase nice run also.

Race 7 $2M The Star Mm Classic 2Yo-Rl 1200m

Very good ride and training performance to get Coolangatta to peak here, J mac got he into a lovely position and held Russian Conquest in a pocket just long enough to steal a 2 L gap. Russian Conquest is a big chance going into a Slipper campaign. Snitcat was a nice run.

Race 8 $2M G.Coast Mm 3Yo Guineas-Rl 1400m

Fast early tempo set it up for the swoopers and King of Sparta was too good, running out the 1400 strongly. Me Me Largarde had some slick sectionals from the 600-200 but knocked up late. She is a nice filly. Dovetail Diva ran very well and can be followed down in class and distance.

Race 9 $1M Racing Qld Magic Millions 1300m

Wisdom makes it 2 in a row, got a lovely run, put them away. Miami Fless missing the start is becoming very costly for her in better races. Safework can win going back down in class.

The Melbourne Review | May 21st, 2022

The track raced very evenly and we saw an emerging 3YO prove his last start win was no fluke.

Rail was out and the track played slightly to the front in my opinion but where tempo allowed it was..
