Trainer Bjorn Baker can’t fault his brilliant colt Winning Rupert ahead of the $2m Gold Coast Magic Millions 3yo Guineas (1400m) at the Gold Coast on Saturday.

Winning Rupert is the raging $1.50 favourite for the Magic Millions 3yo Guineas at Ladbrokes.com.au and Baker said that the Written Tycoon colt gave jockey Jeff Lloyd a good feel in a gallop at the Gold Coast on Tuesday morning.

“Jeff said he has never felt him work better, the horse has never looked better and the draw is really ideal so it’s the shortest way home,” Baker told The Gold Coast Bulletin.

Winning Rupert will get every chance to keep his unbeaten record intact after drawing perfectly at barrier six in the capacity field and will likely jump from gate five when the final field is reduced to sixteen runners at start time.

“He is one horse I wasn’t overly concerned about where we do draw but I think if anything it’s going to be a help,” Baker said.

“He’s always shown a lot of ability and since his last run he’s had a good gallop on Friday morning and then a decent gallop yesterday without trying to break the clock.”

“I’m sure he’ll be right there near the speed and whether he leads or sits off I’ll leave that up to Jeff.”

Winning Rupert made it five wins from five starts when he led all of the way to win the Group 3 $200,000 Vo Rogue Plate (1300m) at Eagle Farm on December 31 and in the process claimed a $500,000 Summer Crown Bonus.

The flashy chestnut three year old kicked off his winning streak during the 2016 Queensland Winter Carnival and after scoring on debut in a 1000m Sunshine Coast 2yo Plate on April 23 went on to win the Group 2 $175,000 Moet & Chandon Champagne Classic (1200m) at Doomben on May 14.

Winning Rupert hasn’t been headed at three runs from a spell and resumed with a five and three quarter lengths win in a 1200m 3yo Plate at Eagle Farm on December 3 before repeating the effort for an easy win in the Listed $100,000 Delfina’s Bistro Gold Edition Plate (1200m) at Doomben on December 17 prior to winning the Vo Rogue Plate and the $500,000 bonus.

The Gai Waterhouse and Adrian Bott trained Global Glamour is the only other runner under the $10 mark at $6 but has the job ahead of her after coming up with the outside barrier.

Global Glamour showed her class in the Spring with back to back Group 1 wins in the $500,000 Sydney Airport Flight Stakes (1600m) at Randwick on October 1 and a week later in the $500,000 Schweppes Thousand Guineas (1600m) at Caulfield but she had no luck when held up for a run in the straight when resuming for a ninth in Listed $100,000 Nudgee Quality Handicap (1200m) at Eagle Farm on December 31 against the older mares.

The Star Witness filly will appreciate the drop back to her own age group with Tim Clark taking over the reins from Tye Angland in the Magic Millions 3yo Guineas.

    Hey there! I just wanted to ask if you ever have any trouble
    with hackers? My last blog (wordpress) was hacked and I ended up losing months of

    prevent hackers?

    First of all I want to say superb blog! I had a
    quick question that I’d like to ask if you don’t mind.
    I was interested to know how you center yourself and clear your mind prior to writing.

    I’ve had a hard time clearing my thoughts in getting my ideas out.
    I do enjoy writing but it just seems like the first 10
    to 15 minutes are usually wasted just trying to figure
    out how to begin. Any ideas or hints? Kudos!
