|Where||Rosehill Gardens Racecourse – James Ruse Dr, Rosehill NSW 2142|
|When||Saturday, July 3, 2021|
|First Race||11am AEST|
A massive 10-race program has been assembled at Rosehill Gardens on Saturday, and HorseBetting’s form analyst brings you his best bets, value bet and quaddie numbers for the program. While there are no feature races on the program, we do see the inaugural running of the Midway Handicap – a weekly event similar to the Highway races, but for those trainers who are based at provincial tracks rather than country tracks. The Rosehill surface is rated a Heavy 9, the rail is out 3m for the entire course, and the first race is set to jump at 11am AEST.
Rosehill Best Bet: Wicklow
Chris Waller and Brenton Avdulla have teamed up with Wicklow in all three of the gelding’s Australian starts this campaign, winning them all in impressive fashion. The three-year-old son of Twilight Son came from last at Newcastle three back to win by a length, before winning his last two over 1800m at this track in very comfortable fashion. He stays at the 1800m on Saturday and remains with 55.5kg on his back which gives him every chance of making it four straight wins. Drawn barrier 11 for Avdulla, this European import will get back into the second half of the field and come home with his scintillating turn of foot. He was cuddled by Avdulla over the concluding stages on June 19 on what was a Heavy 8 track and he still pulled away from his rivals, so the wet track will be no concern on Saturday. The even money quote is a gift.
Next Best at Rosehill: Sir Davy
Look away now if you were on Sir Davy last start in the A.R. Creswick Stakes at Flemington, the three-year-old was a near-certainty beaten. Despite finishing ninth in the field of 14, the Maher & Eustace-trained gelding only finished 1.75 lengths off the winner but never got a clear shot at his rivals in the straight. The son of Street Boss has only had five starts for two wins and two seconds, so dropping back from Listed level to a 2&3YO Benchmark 72 should suit him down to the ground. Josh Parr will do the steering from barrier four which will see him settle towards the rear, but his ability to finish off on a wet track will see him fighting out the finish. While he has not won on either of his soft track starts, he was only narrowly beaten at Warrnambool on a Soft 7 to Sensationalisation on May 5th, and then his most recent start at Listed level at Flemington was on a Soft 7 too, so we aren’t concerned. He should be going close.
Rosehill Value Bet: Miss Einstein
Bjorn Baker and Rachel King combine in the last race of the day with quality mare Miss Einstein. The five-year-old daughter of Dundeel had seven weeks between her first and second-up runs which proved to be key when she finished on the heels of Expat who starts favourite in this, meeting Miss Einstein 2kg worse off at the weights which can see the tables tip into our favour. Prior to the running of her last race, astute mounting yard watcher Lizzie Jelfs said that Miss Einstein looked terrific, but might have just needed one more run, so now second-up and out an extra 100m should suit this mare to a tee. Her heavy track form is very good, with one win and three runner-up efforts from six attempts, and from barrier 10 with King on board she should get the race run to suit and be able to charge home over the top of Expat late.
