Rosehill horse racing tips
Race 1. (12:50) Blakes Marine Clarendon Stakes (1400m)
#1 – Formentera – Bet Now
It was a tough performance from Formentera when breaking maiden grades at Warwick Farm last time out. It did come in maiden grades but the horses in behind were good.
He’s a two-year-old colt that looks set for a city win and he should be able to head forward and give a strong kick.
Having Tim Clark in the saddle helps his cause.
Race 2. (13:25) The Kokoda BM78 (2000m)
#6 – Yonkers – Bet Now
Yonkers scored three consecutive wins before running fourth at Rosehill last start. The Chris Waller-trained gelding didn’t lose any admirers with the defeat and he could bounce back nicely.
Hugh Bowman returns to the saddle and that’s not going to do his chances any harm. He scored on the four-year-old at Canterbury in February and he’s a nice type in the making.
Race 3. (14:00) The Tobruk BM78 (1500m)
#10 – Grand Piano – Bet Now
The three-year-old gelding has a nice turn-of-foot and he deserves to have plenty of attention come race day.
A son of Lord Kanaloa, the John Thompson-trained gelding ran fourth behind Entente at Randwick last start and there was plenty of merit in that performance.
He finds this race easier and he should go close.
Race 4. (14:35) Killahy Equine Hawkesbury Crown (1300m)
#6 – Bangkok @ $4.80 – Bet Now
Early money is coming for Bangkok and it’s hardly surprising. The five-year-old mare produced a big run for third behind White Moss last start and that form bodes well.
She’s a five-year-old mare that owns seven wins and 12 placings, and although she hasn’t won this preparation, it’s only a matter of time.
She draws barrier one and that helps.
Race 5. (15:10) Hawkesbury XXXX Gold Rush (1100m)
#2 – Graff @ $5 – Bet Now
Graff hasn’t raced since running 12th at Newcastle in November but the break could have done the talented horse plenty of good.
He’s only a three-time winner but he has been racing against the best sprinters in Australia for some time now. He owns over $1 million in stakes, so he must be respected on that alone.
$5 is a fair price and he comes into this having won a trial at Newcastle.
Race 6. (15:45) Blacktown Workers Hawkesbury Guineas (1400m)
#2 – Indy Car @ $5.50 – Bet Now
Indy Car has really turned a corner this season with back-to-back wins. The Anthony Cummings-trained runner has been mightily impressive, especially when scoring by 1.5 lengths in listed grade last start.
He has always shown good potential and he’s now living up to it. The Sebring gelding now owns three wins from five starts and he could add another win here.
$5.50 is a great price and those odds could shorten.
Race 7. (16:20) Hawkesbury Cup (1500m)
#8 – Amangiri @ $5 – Bet Now
We’re giving Amangiri one more chance after she finished ninth at Group 1 level last start. The Hawkes-trained mare didn’t let down in the conditions but she’s better in these conditions.
She has plenty of talent and although she doesn’t always show it, her record could stand to attention at this level.
Stick with her at the $5 is worth taking.
Race 8. (16:55) The Gallipoli BM78 (1300m)
#2 – Tricky Gal @ $7 – Bet Now
Tricky Gal has yet to finish worse than second from seven career starts, which includes five wins. She was too good for them at Warwick Farm fresh up and she could continue winning.
She scored a win second-up last campaign and although this field is packed with nice types, she’s one of them.
$7 is a great price and well worth taking in the final race of the day.
