Rosehill horse racing tips
Race 1. (11:45) Sky Racing Active Handicap (1200m)
#7 – Hot ‘N’ Hazy – Bet Now
Danny Williams wouldn’t be coming to the city if Hot ‘N’ Hazy didn’t have a chance of winning.
The two-year-old colt won easily on debut at Wagga and his recent trial was even more impressive. He scored by 14.3 lengths and the son of Snitzel looks to have ability.
He gets the inside draw and he could be an exciting type.
Race 2. (12:20) Xtravagant @ Newhaven Park BM78 (1200m)
#9 – Willowheart – Bet Now
Willowheart was scratched last week but she should be ready to fire. The Chris Waller-trained filly owns two wins from four starts and she handles all track conditions.
She is a daughter of I Am Invincible that won at Canterbury in February and that came on a heavy surface.
It bodes well for another good effort on Saturday.
Race 3. (12:55) Tab Highway C3 Plate (1500m)
#8 – Vibrant Knight – Bet Now
The three-year-old gelding is another quality runner from the Williams stable. He is coming off consecutive wins where he showed good speed throughout.
The well-bred son of Snitzel won’t have much trouble finding the front off the inside barrier and it should play into his hands.
Hugh Bowman takes the ride and he should run close to favouritism.
Race 4. (13:30) July Sprint (1100m)
#6 – Roheryn – Bet Now
Roheryn showed his class last time out at Rosehill and although he’s not as good second-up, he could hold that form.
The James Cummings-trained sprinter remained unbeaten fresh up when scorching home late in the race. It was a huge effort and punters should take confidence from that effort.
Running with 54.5kg on his back only adds to his chances.
Race 5. (14:05) ASX Refinitiv Charity BM78 (2400m)
#7 – Loveseat – Bet Now
Loveseat has been backed and beaten a few times of late but she deserves another chance.
The Cummings-trained mare is coming off a second placing at Rosehill and she runs her best races at this circuit.
Carrying 55.5kg is going to help and Jason Collett has been riding in good form this season.
Race 6. (14:45) TAB BM70 (1400m)
#3 – Travest – Bet Now
Travest suffered his first defeat behind Edison last start but the track wasn’t playing to his favour.
The Gregory Hickman-trained son of Tavistock won his first two starts in fine style and we’re prepared to give him another chance.
He will need the track to be playing fairly for back runners but he might settle closer to the pace from barrier two.
Race 7. (15:25) Winter Challenge (1500m)
#3 – Mugatoo @ $4 – Bet Now
Mugatoo returns after producing some quality wins last campaign. The former European won three consecutive races before running second behind Young Rascal.
He then finished sixth at Group 1 level and dropping back to this level of racing will help his chances. He has been primed with a recent trial and the 1500m won’t be an issue.
It is another good ride for Bowman and the $4 is a fair price.
Race 8. (16:05) Everest Carnival on Sale BM88 (1300m)
#1 – True Detective – Bet Now
True Detective scored back-to-back wins earlier this preparation and although beaten last start, he has more wins in store.
The Chris Waller-trained son of Shamus Award is a three-time winner at this track and distance, which is an impressive record.
Hugh Bowman rides and he should prove tough to beat.
Race 9. (16:45) Rosehill Bowling Club BM78 (1100m)
#5 – Varda @ $2.05 – Bet Now
Varda has won both starts this preparation and those have come by good margins. She won by five lengths at Canterbury and then won by 1.8 lengths last time out.
The well-bred daughter of Lonhro doesn’t know how to run a bad race and she won her only start at Rosehill.
Drawing barrier 10 makes it harder but the early money has come her way.
