Looks a great meeting at Rosehill today with the Group One Golden Rose the highlight of the day. Our top pick is racing is a Group One winner and looks poised to strike today.
Rosehill is racing on a Good 4 with the rail out 3m Entire.
Sticking with the Kris Lees-trained GEM SONG to take out the opening event of the program at Rosehill today. Chased hard when finishing in the placings at Kensington a fortnight ago and will strip fitter second-up here today. Has drawn well and looks well placed to run a big race. Serious chance.
1st: No1 GEM SONG 2nd: No2 Cristobal; 3rd: No4 Sweet Ava; 4th: No7 Silent Explorer
THINK LIKE A FOX has been unlucky at her past couple starts and is due for a change of luck. Narrowly defeated behind The Soloist at Goulburn a fortnight back when the money was on. Sat third last turning for home and savaged the line to go down by less than a half-length. The extra 200 metres will suit her down to the ground. Danger.
1st: No11 THINK LIKE A FOX 2nd: *SCRATCHED* No8 Footmark; 3rd: No1 My Blue Jeans; 4th: No3 Seeblume
TARKA (NEXT BEST BET) is racing in great form and will be looking to make it four straight victories after winning his past three starts. Chased hard to prevail on the line when defeating Dealmaker by the narrowest of margins on this track last start. That race contained Santos and Neutrality who are very good types. Rates well.
1st: No1 TARKA 2nd: No3 Thinkin’ Big; 3rd: No4 Tavirun; 4th: *SCRATCHED* No5 All Things
SIN TO WIN is racing in good form and will be very competitive here today over a distance he has tasted success over in the past. Look good when beaten by 1.4 lengths at Caulfield last start behind Call Me Handsome. Has good second-up form and looks one of the main dangers. Stick with him.
1st: No6 SIN TO WIN 2nd: No5 Cismontane; 3rd: No3 Etah James; 4th: No2 Harper’s Choice
Hard to go past Chris Waller’s runner YOUNGSTAR (BEST BET) that looked good when running on to finish 1.6 lengths of the winner Comin’ Through in the Group Two Tramway Stakes last start. Took out the Queensland Oaks back in May and looks the one to beat in this small field. Watch for her storming home late. Big show expected.
1st: No6 YOUNGSTAR 2nd: No5 Noire; 3rd: No2 Arbeitsam; 4th: No1 Tally
DIXIE BLOSSOMS finished in the placing when resuming in the Group Two Tramway Stakes at Randwick last start without having much luck in the straight. This race looks a bit more to her liking and back to her own sex, she is the one to beat. Goes great second-up too! Serious galloper. Ready to win.
1st: No3 DIXIE BLOSSOMS 2nd: No1 Prompt Response; 3rd: No4 Invincibella; 4th: No7 Princess Posh
GRAFF should be unbeaten and can atone his last start defeat in today’s Group One. Beaten by less than a length behind Lean Mean Machine on this track last start when three-wide the trip, he still hit the front inside the final 100 metres only to be nailed late by the winner. Has the form and loves racing here. Looks the winner and is a serious galloper.
1st: No4 GRAFF 2nd: No2 The Autumn Sun; 3rd: No1 Lean Mean Machine; 4th: No6 Santos
FIERCE IMPACT is resuming from a 17-week layoff but showed plenty of ability at his only two Australian starts last preparation. Won prior to going for a spell at Randwick back in May and has trialled nicely in readiness for this. Will be ready to run a big first-up race. Chance.
1st: No9 FIERCE IMPACT 2nd: *SCRATCHED* No7 Best Guess; 3rd: No8 Tip Top; 4th: No11 Savacool
Sticking with last start winner THE LORD MAYOR to make it successive victories in the final event of the program. Got the sweet run and finished off nicely in holding off Quick Defence and Brimham Rocks at Randwick over this distance a fortnight back. Has drawn well once again.
1st: No4 THE LORD MAYOR 2nd: No1 Goodfella; 3rd: No2 Naval Warfare; 4th: No3 Abdon
