Sydney racing backs-up at Rosehill this Saturday where the rail is out three-metres and the track expected to get back in the good range after a day of rain on Wednesday.
Race seven is a BM88 over 1300m with Godolphin holding a strong hand in the race. Coruscate ($3.20) has four career wins, three of those have come from his four runs this prep most recently beating O’Rachel at Randwick over 1200m. Beacon ($5.50) is third-up and off a last start third to Single Bullet while Gaulois ($6) resumes from a spell after winning two of his six runs last prep. A winner of four from 16 overall – with nine minor placings – he probably hasn’t lived up to early expectations and although he’s got top weight of 59kg, he gets the services of the in-form Josh Parr in the saddle.
Team Hawkes line up with Dyslexic ($4.20) who is second-up and drops down from G3 grade at her last four starts while a win for Tip Top ($5) would make it three-straight for the six-year-old gelding.
Once again, the two-year-olds open the day and once again, a small field will line up – Godolphin to saddle up two of the five.
Exhilarates ($2) and Kiamichi ($5) both make their race debut, and both are off the one official trial where they both finished runner-up.
The Hayes/Dabernig yard send up Sebrakate ($2.80) who is off two SA wins and he carries 59kg, five kilos above his nearest rival.
Chia ($11) has a city midweek placing from her first start while Oh So Hot ($23) has run fourth at both her starts, last start beaten nearly 6L by Time to Reign.
Race two – a BM76 over 1400 for three-year-olds – is an interesting affair, Royal Celebration ($2.20) favourite for the race after breaking through for a well-deserved win last start.
Wagner ($3.50) has the two wins from his seven career starts and drops back from two unplaced runs in G3 grade in Melbourne at his past two starts while stable mate Singing Sand ($12) broke her maiden last start – her fourth career run.
Coterie ($7.50) has won both his starts this prep. Etana ($23) and Baller ($10) are both one win from their one start while Phoneme ($8.50) is also off a last start win, which also came at her fourth career start.
A field of 14 fillies and mares line up in the final race of the day, a BM78 over 1100m.
Montrachet ($7) broke her maiden at this track last campaign – Youngstar was third in the race – when first-up and she resumes here. Second-up last campaign she ran fourth to Sambro in the G3 Hawkesbury Guineas (1400m).
Seasons ($4.20) is yet to finish further back than second from her two career starts and like her stable mate earlier in the day, a win here would give her three-in-a-row.
Regimen ($8) is off a last-start fourth – beaten 1.9L – but hasn’t won in over a year.
Smart Amelia ($14) is first-up and last prep she was a winner when fresh over this track and distance.
Brook Magic ($9) is racing consistently enough, her last win was over 1100m at Randwick – on a heavy-9 – beating She Knows and Revenire which looks solid form for this race.
Goldfinch ($12) has five wins from her 16 career starts, her last three runs have been in three different states, but she is on the ‘NSW back-up’ here.
Strome ($41) is first-up and comes off a prep that saw her win all four of her career wins last campaign. Her stable mate Sebring Express ($15) has the two wins from three runs this time in.
Falerina ($7.50) has the three wins from her five starts, this being her second start in the city – her first when fifth to She Knows in Highway grade. Kawaikini ($20) is second-up after failing to fire when first-up and can improve here while Ellie’s Encore ($11) is off a last-start photo-finish win on the ‘Kenso’ track.
Suggested Bet: A typically tough fillies and mares race to round out the day but happy to side with Montrachet ($7, race 9, number 10). She was good first-up last campaign before running well enough in the G3 Hawkesbury Guineas (1400m) at only her third career start. Any money on the day will be a good guide but under the guidance of Team Hawkes, she looks a promising mare and worth at the very least, an each-way ticket.
