We have expert betting tips for the card this Saturday at Rosehill, which features nine quality betting races.
It might be winter but there’s still some classy thoroughbreds in action. Spring isn’t that far away and we’ll start to see the really good types sooner rather than later.
Rosehill free tips & form
Race 1. (11:30) Everest Carnival Handicap (1100m)
#9 – Spend @ $2.60 – Bet Now
The Hawkes-trained son of Snitzel is on debut and has been well-received in the betting. He has opened up at $2.60, which is short for a debutant.
He comes into this having scored a two-length trial win at Rosehill over the talented Reloaded and that form looks good for this.
That trial win came on a heavy track so that shouldn’t worry him.
Race 2. (12:05) Book Spring Hospitality BM74 (1500m)
#1 – Call Me Royal – Bet Now
Call Me Royal showed just how tough she can be when winning at Rosehill last start. The three-year-old went forward and kicked strongly to score by a half-length.
She’s a professional type which has won three and placed in six from only 11 starts. Many of those placings were due to poor draws, but she’s making her own luck now.
Rises up in weight but she has class stamped on her record.
Race 3. (12:40) Lindsay Murphy Highway Handicap (1400m)
#1 – Gumshoe – Bet Now
Gets another run in the Highway Handicap following his win last time out at Randwick.
The three-year-old rises right up in weight and is drawn barrier 14, but coming down the outside might be the tactics used here after he used them to score last start.
He has finished out of the money in only one of his seven starts and we’ve seen stronger Highway Handicap fields.
Race 4. (13:15) ATC Member Tours BM78 (2000m)
#10 – Waking Moment @ $6 – Bet Now
Faces a tough field here but carrying a light weight is going to help. The Chris Waller-trained mare has 50.5kg on her back and that’s a big bonus.
She’s coming off a second-place finish behind Toryjoy and although she’s only a one-win type, she should be winning a race shortly.
$6 is worth the risk.
Race 5. (13:50) ATC Foundation BM78 (1100m)
#3 – Spiritual Pursuit @ $2.70 – Bet Now
That was a deserved win from Spiritual Pursuit last start and she might just kick on with it now. The three-year-old filly won by 1.5 lengths and she could mature into a nice type.
With three wins and three placings from eight starts, the daughter of Snitzel has been right around the mark throughout her career.
Sam Clenton takes some weight off her back here and she could be winning again.
Race 6. (14:30) TAB BM78 (1500m)
#9 – Cyber Intervention @ $4.20 – Bet Now
Joe Pride lines up the four-year-old gelding which is coming off a solid second placing at Randwick.
The son of So You Think made up solid ground behind Stella Sei Sun and that form should stack up nicely for this grade.
Carrying 57kg is going to help and he represents good value in a tough race.
Race 7. (15:10) Winter Stakes (1400m)
#7 – Seaway @ $6.50 – Bet Now
Seaway has lost his way a touch but his form earlier this campaign was good. The Waller-trained gelding wasn’t all that far away when fifth at Rosehill last start and he’s in fit condition now.
His two wins earlier this time in both came on this track and he’s able to handle the wet conditions, with two wins on a soft surface.
$6.50 is worth taking and he could firm.
Race 8. (15:50) Australian Turf Club BM88 (1200m)
#14 – River Bird @ $4.20 – Bet Now
River Bird is firing on all cylinders at the moment with three wins from her last four starts.
Her first win broke maiden grades by two lengths and she coped with the rise in class her last two starts with narrow wins.
Rising in grade makes it harder here but she stays down in the weights at 53kg and she’s good enough to take this out.
Each-way odds on offer.
Race 9. (16:30) Rosehill Bowling Club BM78 (1200m)
#10 – Brilliant Choice @ $4.20 – Bet Now
Brilliant Choice has yet to finish outside of the placings from five starts and that form looks good for this.
The Hawkes-trained three-year-old is fresh up after running third at Flemington in March and although never tried on a wet track, his breeding suggests that he could handle it.
Drawing barrier 10 isn’t the worst and betting will tell the story come race day.
