Looking for a new bookmaker ahead of Rosehill’s card?
Race 1 – Open Plate (1100m)
Outrageous has trialed well leading into this and looks a great candidate in a tricky field. A number of these runners have never raced competitively, something Outrageous has done. Look for a much-improved horse this time around.
Race 1 tip: Outrageous to win ($5.50 at Crownbet)
Race 2 – Wilkes Quality (1100m)
No ifs, ands or buts, Siege Of Quebec is winning this race. The horse has a distinct class advantage on this field and has trialed beautifully leading into it. Siege Of Quebec will not be losing.
Race 2 tip: Siege Of Quebec to win ($1.60 at Neds)
Race 3 – Benchmark 88 (1500m)
Prometheus is chasing a hat-trick and looks well placed to get it. The horse has placed third-up previously in the past and is carrying a tiny 53kg. Will be hard to hold out.
Race 3 tip: Prometheus to win ($5 at Ladbrokes)
Race 4 – Class 2 (1100m)
We’re going for a long-shot here. The Lion won well at Gunnedah last time out and actually has a quality record of two wins and two placings from nine starts. Racing for the first time in Sydney but we’re not counting the roughie out here.
Race 4 tip: The Lion to win ($31 at Sportsbet)
Race 5 – Benchmark 80 (1300m)
Fanning should be able to surf to the front from barrier six and win this race from the head of the field. The horse has been ultra-consistent over this preparation, and it’s last-start win at Gosford at Class 4 level was impressive.
Race 5 tip: Fanning to win ($6.50 at William Hill)
Race 6 – Benchmark 80 (1350m)
Moss Trip is a last-start winner that comes in at a minuscule weight, which means we cannot overlook it. The promising type has placed second-up in the past and from barrier two it should get a great cart into the race. Back Moss Trip in to go back-to-back.
Race 6 tip: Moss Trip to win ($3.10 at William Hill)
Race 7 – Carrington Stakes (1400m)
Lanciato is a promising type that is quickly progressing through the grades. This represents a big challenge but we think it is up to it. The horse has been given a slight freshen up coming into it and will be extremely hard to beat.
Race 7 tip: Lanciato to win ($3.70 at Crownbet)
Race 8 – Benchmark 82 (1800m)
Emperor’s Way is flying this preparation and looms as a winning hope once again. The horse has good enough get speed to overcome barrier eight and given its significant upside it should be recording a win here.
Race 8 tip: Emperor’s Way to win ($3.60 at Crownbet)
Race 9 – Benchmark 80 (1100m)
Satirical Magic is looking to complete a fourth-straight win and it has the ability to do so here. The horse won last-start at this grading so the class will not be an issue.
Race 9 tip: Satirical Magic to win ($5.50 at Crownbet)
