We have expert betting tips for the card this Saturday at Rosehill that features nine quality betting races.
We’re heading into winter but there are still some slick thoroughbreds in action. Rosehill has excellent racing scheduled and we have our best value bets.
Rosehill horse racing tips
Race 1. (11:30) E Group Security Handicap (1500m)
#4 – Hundred Proof @ $4.80 – Bet @ Sportsbet
The two-year-old colt flashed home late behind Cape Breton last start and that form looks good for this race.
He improved significantly and it could be a sign of things to come. The son of Into Mischief will appreciate the rise in distance and we’re surprised he’s not shorter in the market.
Take the $4.80 before it drops in price.
Race 2. (12:05) Sharp Extensive It BM72 (1800m)
#4 – Wicklow @ $1.65 – Bet @ Sportsbet
Wicklow has made a good impression since arriving in Australia and the three-year-old looks set to rise through the grades.
The son of Twilight Son comes off a 1.8-length win at Rosehill and having experience on this track holds him in good stead.
$1.65 is short but it’s a price worth taking against this level of opposition.
Race 3. (12:40) Tab Highway C3 Handicap (1200m)
#7 – Cavalier Charles @ $3.60 – Bet @ Sportsbet
The Matthew Dale-trained four-year-old looked good scoring by 3.5 lengths at Nowra and that form looks good enough for this race.
He has yet to finish worse than third from five starts, so the consistency is there and having James McDonald in the saddle is a bonus.
Barrier 12 doesn’t make it easy but we’re expecting a nice run.
Race 4. (13:15) ACY Securities BM78 (2000m)
#6 – No Compromise @ $3.80 – Bet @ Sportsbet
No Compromise comes off a win at Randwick and although dropping in distance is a worry, he’s a versatile type.
The former Kiwi owns good form over 2000m with a win and a placing. He built strongly towards the last-start win and it’s another good ride for McDonald.
It could pay to watch betting moves for any late money.
Race 5. (13:50) The Agency Real Estate BM72 (1100m)
#1 – Nikohli Beagle @ $4.60 – Bet @ Sportsbet
Coming off a win at Warwick Farm is Nikohli Beagle, which owns four wins from nine career starts.
The four-year-old son of Nicconi scored by 1.8 lengths last time out and he looks good enough to rise through the grades.
His opening odds of $4.20 are drifting, so punters should get a good price on race day.
Race 6. (14:25) Ranvet BM78 (1300m)
#12 – Tycoonist @ $2.70 – Bet @ Sportsbet
Knocking on the door of a win is Tycoonist, which comes off two luckless runs and he looks ready to score a breakthrough win.
The three-year-old son of Written Tycoon was only a length behind the winner last start and form out of that race should hold up nicely.
55kg and McDonald on the back is ideal and the odds should firm.
Race 7. (15:05) XXXX WJ McKell Cup (2000m)
#11 – Brutality @ $10 – Bet @ Sportsbet
Brutality isn’t the most consistent type going around, but the four-year-old is capable of producing the goods at this level.
The son of Shamus Award owns four wins and six placings from 17 starts, and he won his only start at Rosehill.
Carrying 53kg is ideal and punters get $10 to enjoy, which is a fair price given his ability.
Race 8. (15:45) Bowermans Furniture BM78 (1300m)
#7 – Katalin @ $1.95 – Bet @ Sportsbet
The James Cummings-trained four-year-old is a three-time winner from five starts and we like what she produced last time out.
She scored a fresh up win by three lengths and she won her only second-up start, so there are no holes in her form lines.
It’s another top ride for James McDonald and he could be in for a big day.
Race 9. (16:25) Rosehill Bowling Club BM78 (1500m)
#8 – Oscar Zulu @ $6.50 – Bet @ Sportsbet
Oscar Zulu comes off a win on this track and we’re expecting that form to stack up nicely at this level. It was his third career win from 10 starts, including his second on this track.
The Chris Waller-trained three-year-old gets the services of Hugh Bowman in the saddle and punters get each-way odds.
We’re expecting a solid effort with fitness on his side.
