The Track: Rosehill is a tight turning circuit that favours the on pace runners even when the rail is in the True position. Once the rail moves out, weather and track conditions can seriously affect the pattern of racing and if the better going is away from the inside rail (as it often is by this stage of the Autumn Carnival at Rosehill) they will be finishing on outside the leaders in the concluding stages.
Track Bias, Barriers: The 1200m start is located in a chute in the middle of the course. There is a long straight run to the first turn, it is possible to win from an outside gate when the track conditions are suiting horses that are finishing on down the centre of the track. As this is the third consecutive weekend of racing at this track during the Autumn carnival, the rail is often moved out and horses will race wide in search of better going, particularly if the ground is rain affected.
