Rosehill free tips & form
Race 1. (12:30) The Schweppervescence (1400m)
#1 – Spin @ $4.60 – BET NOW
Spin was on the ballot for the Golden Slipper and he might have had a chance had he made it into the field.
The Peter and Paul Snowden-trained two-year-old finished third behind Written By last start after getting too far back in the run and considering his form heading into this, the $4.60 on offer is good value from bookmakers.
Carrying 58kg is the only concern but he’s facing an easier field here and it’s about time he notched his first career success.
Race 2. (13:10) Neville Sellwood Stakes (2000m)
#1 – One Foot In Heaven @ $3.80 – BET NOW
Big money has come for the former French runner which is now stabled with Chris Waller.
The son of Fastnet Rock finished second at Group 2 level France before coming to Australia, where he has had three trials to prepare for this.
He could be a touch underdone fitness wise for this, but the market tells punters another story. He opened at $7.50 and has been smashed into $3.80, which suggests he’s ready to fire.
This is a tidy field but it wouldn’t match the international form he brings in and he should go close with Hugh Bowman in the saddle.
Race 4. (14:20) Emancipation Stakes (1500m)
#1 – Daysee Doom @ $3.50 – BET NOW
Daysee Doom has hit form at the right time with back-to-back wins this autumn.
Trained by Ron Quinton, the five-year-old scored two wins on this track and she was at long odds in both runs, but punters have come for her this time around.
The course specialist has won five of her nine starts at Rosehill and placed in three. That’s a record which demands attention and she’s going to get every chance off the inside draw.
This is a loaded field and we also like the chances of Oregon’s Day, but Daysee Doom has the form on the board.
Race 5. (14:55) Tulloch Stakes (2000m)
#6 – Mongolian Marshal @ $3.40 – BET NOW
The Kiwis usually have good success during the autumn carnival and Mongolian Marshal looks a top chance this Saturday.
Having missed a start in the Rosehill Guineas last week, the three-year-old gets a chance to show off his talents in Australia, having won his last two starts in New Zealand.
The Baker/Forsman-trained gelding won at Ellerslie by 3.3 lengths last start and that form is going to hold up well at this level.
Murray Baker knows what it takes to win an age-group race in Australia and he appears to have another top-liner in his stable.
Race 8. (16:50) Doncaster Prelude (1500m)
#4 – Interlocuter @ $5.50 – BET NOW
Interlocuter was a money-making machine earlier this season and although he has gone off the boil a touch, we’ll repay the faith by backing him in here.
The James Cummings-trained imported horse finished sixth behind Crack Me Up last start, which followed a third placing behind the same horse.
His form prior included three consecutive wins against some tough opposition and if he’s anywhere near peak fitness, he’ll go close here at each way odds.
Race 9. (17:30) Sydney’s West App BM93 (1400m)
#5 – Osborne Bulls @ $3.10 – BET NOW
Osborne Bulls should have continued his winning ways last start but he was given a shocking ride from Brenton Avdulla.
Avdulla pocketed the hot favourite at Kembla Grange and for a horse that needs running room to wind up, it was a poor tactical ride from the Golden Slipper-winning jockey.
Drawing barrier two isn’t going to help again but Avdulla should have learnt from his mistakes and punters are getting $3.10 compared to the $1.50 last start.
He looks a good bet to close the card.

Race 2. (13:25) Noel Rundle Handicap (1100m)
#2 – Hear The Chant @ $2.90 – BET NOW
Lindsay Park lines up prolific sprinter Hear The Chant, which will enjoy taking on easier company this time around.
The four-year-old mare scored a quality win at Flemington two starts back before running third behind Quilista last start.
That form is going to stack up well for the rest of the season and she’s going to find a good position in the field from barrier three.
Her odds have dropped slightly and we’re expecting more money to come for her.
Race 4. (14:35) Bert Bryant Handicap (1100m)
#3 – Time Awaits @ $16 – BET NOW
Nice odds on offer for this Tony McEvoy-trained filly which needed the run last time out.
The three-year-old filly finished seventh behind Demerara at Flemington and although that looked disappointing on face value, she’s only going to improve with the fitness under her belt.
Her form prior included two wins at Morphettville and a fourth placing behind Shoals at Flemington, which stacks up well for this.
There are some handy types in this field but the favourite could get caught wide and Time Awaits could land on the speed and give a good kick at double-figure odds.
Race 6. (15:50) Robert Taranto (1800m)
#8 – Top Of The Range @ $3.60 – BET NOW
The big move in this race has come for Top Of The Range, which opened at $4.80.
Unlucky not to win last time out, the Michael Moroney-trained gelding finished within a nose of Soho Ruby at Flemington and he will take plenty out of that effort.
Drawing barrier 11 is going to be the concern but it shouldn’t matter over this distance and he drops in weight by 3.5kg.
That could make all the difference and he should go close.
Race 8. (17:10) Victoria Handicap (1400m)
#6 – Theanswermyfriend @ $4.20 – BET NOW
The Henry Dwyer-trained gelding went close at Flemington last time out and he could go one better this time around.
Losing by a nose to Sovereign Nation was a tough loss for punters who took the $2.60, but they’re getting better odds here and he should get every chance to atone for that loss.
The four-year-old is going to get a dream run from barrier four and likely land on the speed. He’s tough to run down and he might steal a break coming into the straight.
Nice value on offer considering his usual starting prices.
