2020 Magic Millions Cup Preview, Betting Predictions & Tips


Date: Saturday January 11, 2020
Track: Gold Coast
Distance: 1400m
Field Limit: 16 + 5 emergencies
Prize Money: $1 million

The Magic Millions Cup is a race for the older horses on Magic Millions Race Day and there are some nice thoroughbreds in action at Gold Coast.

There hasn't been much movement in the betting so far but we're expecting plenty of action to come late, especially for the likes of current favourite Arbeitsam, Usain Bowler and longshot chance Paret.

2019 Magic Millions Cup Best Bet - Arbeitsam @ 5.00


Arbeitsam is a natural front-runner which is always tough to beat in these races. The Waterhouse/Bott-trained five-year-old is a winner of seven from 25 starts and she looked good winning a trial by four lengths coming into this.

Looks a top chance.

2019 Magic Millions Best Each Way - Paret @ 11.00


Paret was the talk of the town last preparation when scoring three consecutive wins during the end of the winter months, but his performances when rising in grade were average.

The Chris Waller-trained runner finished seventh in the Bill Ritchie Handicap before running 18th in the Group 1 Epsom Handicap. They were poor efforts, but going in his favour is the massive drop in class and he has since trialled for this run.

He is a risk for punters but 11.00 is worth taking that risk.

2019 Magic Millions Best Roughie - Cadogan @ 15.00


Cadogan has come of age this preparation but rattling off three wins on the bounce. The five-year-old for Toby Edmonds has beaten some nice handicap types during that run and the form out of those races stacks up.

He hasn't been tested against this level of opposition but his confidence is up and he's worth following at the odds.

Best Bet: Arbeitsam @ 5.00
Best Each Way: Paret @ 11.00
Best Roughie: Cadogan @ 15.00
