Sat. 23 March 2019 – Fixed odds prices from Sportsbet on Friday.
Rosehill Race 5 George Ryder Stakes 1500m.
Not much more to say about Winx ($1.06 Win) so taking a look at some possible place chances to form a first four. Land Of Plenty ($1.8 Place) has won on Soft, slight query if the going is very Heavy. Dream Force ($2.25 Place) is a front runner who goes OK on wet tracks. So Si Bon ($3.8 Place) has drawn a middle gate and could be capable of going forward, placed at this track as a 3yo in the Guineas.
Rosehill Race 6 Ranvet Stakes 2000m.
Avilius ($3.4) was unbeaten in Sydney before heading to Melbourne, looked a chance in the Australian Cup but couldn’t get into the finish. Danzdanzdance ($7) loves the wet and is a Group 1 winner in NZ. Unforgotten ($5) has a good record at this track, unplaced 1 try on Soft. Egg Tart ($13) has an excellent record on heavy tracks, has been racing against some quality fields and may get her chance here. Nettoyer ($20) is a winner on Heavy and has placed at this track & distance, could be each-way value.
Rosehill Race 7 Golden Slipper 1200m.
Yes Yes Yes ($7.5) has been racing well against limited competition, a very wide gate here is not ideal but not insurmountable. Microphone ($7) has the opposite problem starting from the inside gate and will have to push forward early. Cosmic Force ($4.6) was well beaten by Microphone 2 starts back then relished the wet track to win by 7L, can figure in the finish again. Blue Diamond winner Lyre ($12) has trialled well on Soft, has been kept fresh for this but Diamond winners don’t have a really great record in this. The Reisling Stakes can be a good form race for this and Tenley ($5.5) ticks a lot of form boxes, recent trial on Soft.
Rosehill Race 8 Galaxy 1100m.
Redzel ($5) might be better suited on a bigger track but always fights hard, can get into a place here. Pierata ($8) dropped out when resuming, has a good record when 2nd up and suited under handicap conditions. Nature Strip ($5) usually goes well first up and handles wet tracks. Graff ($4.8) has winning form at this t/d, nicely weighted here. Viridine ($6) also goes well at this t/d and was 3rd in this last year. Easy Eddie ($18) hasn’t missed a place this campaign and loves a wet track, value for the exotics.
Have a good weekend, happy punting.
