The Magic Millions is done for another year, what a great carnival.
Thank god we backed Eleven Eleven, otherwise it was pretty slim pickings unless you had an each way ticket on Away Game.

Here's a couple for today, as it turns out, all of these are in the space of about 20 minutes so you can duck out for smoko and make some bank - hopefully.
Sandown Race 1 - Johnny Angel - $2.70
Small field here and doesn't appear to be overly strong.
The favourite Ord jumped @ $1.35 last start and really let the punters down. I'm banking on Damien Lane pushing the go button from the outside here and crossing the field to lead.
If he does that without too much fuss, I think he can be winning after a couple of nice runs behind some nice horses.
I could get this wrong, but I reckon the market might flip on these two and Johnny might run favourite.
Townsville Race 3 - Stolen Diamonds $5.50
Good win last start over 1400m on a Soft 7, today it gets 1600m and another Soft 7 surface. I like how it's placed again today.
The danger is of course the favourite, Cleo's Poet. It'll lead and try and pinch it on the corner, I just think the 60.5kgs might stop it late and Stolen Diamonds can come over the top of it.
Small field suits Stolen Diamonds here, hopefully we're only a couple of lengths off Cleo's Poet as they make the turn for home, good each way bet.
Oakbank Race 4 - Double Blue - $9
1 win from 13 starts doesn't read the greatest but this horse just has a habit of finding no luck - let's hope that's not the case today.
From barrier 6 today, I'd love Maggie Collett to just take a trail mid field and I think the Oakbank track will suit it. 1st up record isn't flash, but again, if you go back through it's runs, they haven't been terrible performances, prepared to have a bit each way on Double Blue.
Say if you've got a bank of $50 to play with today, here's how I'd structure it based on their current prices.
$17 win on Johnny Angel
$6 win $15 the place Stolen Diamonds
$4 win $8 the place on Double Blue
