The unbeaten Ciaron Maher and David Eustace-trained youngster was a significant firmer in betting after the draw, coming in from $7 to $5.50.

Dubious Horseform has joined the Godolphin filly Exhilarates at the top of betting with long time favourite Unite And Conquer Horseform easing from $5 to $6.


Dubious had been an $8 favourite for the MM Classic after his debut win in the Breeders Plate at Randwick in September.

He resumed with a stylish win at Eagle Farm on December 22 but Exhilarates Horseform took over at the head of the betting after she won easily at the Gold Coast last Saturday.

“Punters were clearly in the corner of Team Godolphin with Exhilarates after the draw, however Dubious has been a notable firmer as well,” said TAB spokesman Glenn Munsie.

“Dubious and Exhilarates are the two most popular runners in the past 24 hours with the former attracting some good money.

“Outside of them every other runner has pretty much drifted.”

In the Magic Millions 3YO Guineas Outback Barbie Horseform is a pronounced favourite at $2.60 and is clearly the most popular runner in terms of early money taken.

Boomsara Horseform ($4.80) is the only other runner in single figures with Star Fall Horseform and Bondi Horseform heading the rest at $10.
