Australasia’s best three-year-old middle-distance runners line up in the Group 1 Rosehill Guineas, where The Autumn Sun dominates the market.
It has been a race dominated by the Kiwis in recent years but The Autumn Sun could be the horse to hold off the five-horse charge from across the Tasman.

Rosehill Guineas Form Guide & Tips
The Autumn Sun (Best Bet – $1.35) Bet Now
Punters have to take the short odds but he might well be the second best in Australia, granted his form has come only in age-group racing.
Despite that, he’s facing age-group opposition here and he should have too much class. He’s better on top of the ground but he picked up Fundamentalist in style last start and those kinds of performances are rare.
No sure thing here but he is the best middle-distance thoroughbred in the Rosehill Guineas.
Madison County (Best Each Way – $9.50) Bet Now
Kiwi gelding which won the Group 1 Levin Classic three starts back before running third in the Karaka Million 3YO and fourth behind The Autumn Sun last start.
He does need to make up 2.7 lengths on that defeat but he was always going to improve with the outing in Australia and he represents good each way value.
Handles conditions well and the Kiwis love this race.
Crown Prosecutor (Best Roughie – $21) Bet Now
New Zealand Derby winners have a good record in this race over the last five years and although he won the Derby paying in excess of $105, he still demands respect.
The Stephen Marsh-trained colt ran eighth behind Madison County in the Levin Classic but he has improved nicely since then and James McDonald takes the ride.
Worth backing at odds.
Surely Sacred ($15) Bet Now
Tony Pike has a great record in bringing his team over to Australia and this gelding was the favourite for the NZ Derby where he ran fifth.
That wasn’t a bad run as not much went right for him and his breeding suggests that he’ll handle the sting out of the track.
Include at nice odds.
Aramayo ($31) Bet Now
Hasn’t performed overly well this campaign and we don’t believe he’s up to winning the Rosehill Guineas.
Would need some serious luck in running.
Vernanme ($21) Bet Now
Stablemate to Crown Prosecutor which ran ninth in the Derby. That was a touch disappointing after being well-backed on that occasion.
Opie Bosson rides but we’re not sure he’s quite good enough to win at this level just yet.
Arrogant ($23) Bet Now
The Mike Moroney stable is heating up this autumn and this Kiwi colt could inject some pace into the race.
The son of Ocean Park likes to roll forward and given that he fought on gamely for fourth in the NZ Derby, he must be respected at this level.
Interesting runner and we wouldn’t be ruling out his chances.
Chapada ($41) Bet Now
Another Moroney-trained runner which ran 16th in the Australian Guineas behind Mystic Journey and it’s tough to see him improving enough to win.
Should be longer in the betting.
Dealmaker ($19) Bet Now
Fifth in the Australian Guineas and that form has been franked in the All-Star Mile against the older horses.
Has form on wet tracks, including a win and two placings. That bodes well and he should be around the mark.
Purple Sector ($91) Bet Now
Had no luck its last two but those runs might have taken the sting out of him. 31.8 lengths behind The Autumn Sun last start so it could pay to ignore his chances here.
Costello ($41) Bet Now
Has won his last two starts and he’s bred to enjoy the longer distances. The son of Americain scored by a length at Rosehill last time out and he deserves a shot at this level.
Likely to be outclassed but generates some interest.
Yulong Tavion ($151) Bet Now
Son of Tavistock which has a maiden win at Moe to boast. That’s not good enough for this and both Mick Price-trained runners are having a stab in the dark.
Ablestock ($151) Bet Now
Mick Price-trained colt which is also by Tavistock. Has one placing from five starts and we’re not sure why it’s running.
