The final field has been announced for Saturday’s $2 million Magic Millions 3YO Guineas (1400m) at the Gold Coast. The Magic Millions 3YO Guineas barrier draw will be announced on Tuesday, January 12 at 10am AEDT.

Tony Gollan’s three-year-old filly Isotope will be one of the key runners for the Guineas. She has raced seven times for four wins and two seconds. Isotope will chase a hat-trick of wins after winning the Listed Mode Plate (1200m) and Listed Gold Edition Plate (1200m) where she narrowly beat Away Game.

Isotope’s chief rival in the Magic Millions 3YO Guineas will be none other than Away Game who is trained by Ciaron Maher and David Eustace. The filly has won four races from nine starts and captured the Magic Millions 2YO Classic (1200m) last year. She was also fourth in the Group 1 Blue Diamond Stakes (1200m) and second in the Group 1 Golden Slipper (1200m).

The Richard and Michael Freedman-trained three-year-old filly Forbidden Love has also won four career races from nine starts. She is a last start winner of the Listed Gosford Guineas (1200m).

Apache Chase and Gotta Kiss are other key runners for the race.
