Rosehill Saturday 28-01-2017 Horses to Follow

Find the right horses for your blackbook from Rosehill on Saturday

Mon, 30 Jan, 12:56 PM


With the autumn carnival closing in, it becomes paramount to identify horses that are ticking along nicely aiming at big races.

Here we’ll identify some obvious and perhaps not so obvious horses to follow out of last Saturday’s (28-01-2017) Rosehill and Flemington meetings and outline the races their heading towards.

OBVIOUS PICKS – MENARI / MUSIC MAGNATE No prizes for identifying these two gallopers out of the meeting, but there will be at both their next starts if they re-produce their respective efforts.

Menari: Given no hope of winning after landing behind the leader of Josh Parr. The well backed $1.75 favourite (reaching a minimum of $1.65) for the Canonbury Stakes was a victim of circumstances and given the way he savaged the line once he barged his way out into the clear from behind tiring leaders, a certainly beaten. Still has very legitimate slipper ($11) and blue diamond claims ($21 into $11).

Record: 2:1-1-0

Where to next? Newmarket Handicap: 11-03-2017 ($51-$26) or the more likely TJ Smith Stakes: 01-04-2017 ($18)

SECTIONALS PICK – ZARA BAY: With returning jockey Corey Brown allowing the 4 year-old mare to drift back to third from last she stormed home (33.37s final 600m, 11.39s final 200m, fastest of the day!) as the widest runner cornering into the straight with 400m to go with a 0.6L third after some backing: $15-$12. Scarlet Rain ($4.80-$6.50) held on from a fast finishing Badajoz ($3.20-$2.80). With a benchmark of 77 after her first run back in NSW, she’ll be winning a similar event soon enough.

Record: 14:2-3-3
