Mackinnon Money Back Offer on Open Affair
October 29, 2015
The Mackinnon Stakes kicks off the quaddie at Flemington on Saturday but it may be wise to go wide in the first leg. The million dollar Group One should be a competitive judging by the field. Thankfully Bookmaker.com.au is helping punters out with a money back special on the 2000 metre weight for age race.
Mackinnon Money Back Offer
Back a runner to win the Mackinnon Stakes on Bookmaker.com.au and if your selection finishes second or third you’ll get your stake back, up to $50. Only your first fixed odds win wager qualifies for this offer and any refunds will be completed by Saturday evening. The race is number 6 on the card and will jump at approximately 3.05pm AEDT.
A Couple to Consider
The Mackinnon Stakes looks an open event with the field around $5.50 with Bookmaker.com.au. MAGIC HURRICANE is the current favourite and has also been the market mover on Bookmaker.com.au. Not much to say here other than he was a dominant winner of the Group One Metropolitan in the Sydney Spring Carnival and if he produces that from again he will likely be the winner.
3 times Group One winner Fawkner’s on a quick back up from last weekend’s Cox Plate and is just into double figures. Ok run last start, nowhere near winner WINX, though nothing was! The grey gelding will need some luck from a wide gate but returns to the scene of his last elite level victory. That was the Makybe Diva Stakes first up in September.
There’s been big wraps on PORNICHET for some time now and after a pretty disappointing campaign he appeared to bounce back somewhere near his best in the Cox Plate. Ripping run for fourth in that and has a good record in 2000 metre or more races in Australia. 2 wins from 5 starts at this distance for the $9 chance.
STRATUM STAR has been unbelievable this prep and easily made the distance last start, winning comfortably. Wide gate could be an issue for the second favourite ($7.50). Not much known about overseas runner MAGIC ARTIST ($13) but the 5 year old is German and Germans are usually efficient… Perhaps watch for betting moves.
