"I’d expect the winner to rate in the 88 - 89 range. This is the first try at this distance for most of the runners so there are a few queries. Historically the Victorian form is a bit stronger than the local Tasmanian form & I’d expect this to be the case again."
"Taking a balanced view of history and the lead up form to this race, the winner will require a rating of at least 90 at the weights. If Sunlight or Ef Troop run right up to their form then this will end up a strong rating edition of the Magic Millions, in the 92-94 range."
