The Group 2 Expressway Stakes is the feature event on a monster program of racing this Saturday at Rosehill. Can anyone stop the Caulfield Guineas Champion Golden Mile who looks to have a mortgage on the time-honoured event?
Rosehill Race 7
#11 Dynamic Impact
Dynamic Impact was brilliant when winning fresh before getting too far back last start. From barrier three Tyler Schiller should have the gelding by Real Impact closer to the speed, and if he sees daylight, he will be hard to hold out. He looks well placed in this grade, and he looks over the odds.
The dual acceptor Spacewalk will be competitive if he lines-up here. He was stiff first-up, and he can make amends from a middle gate. The 1200m looks ideal, and he is weighted to perfection.
Dehorned Unicorn is having a stellar preparation. Despite the wide barrier, the gelding by Star Witness will be there as the post looms.
Kalino can make it a hatrick of wins from an inside draw. Staying at 1200m is a positive, and he is tough enough to shake off the 59.5kg.
Suggested Bet: Dynamic Impact @ $15.00
Rosehill RACE 8
#9 Golden Mile
The Caulfield Guineas Champion Golden Mile looks incredibly hard to beat here fresh. From an inside draw I expect him to get the run of the race, and the Weight For Age conditions are ideal for the stunning colt. He is versatile, he is talented, and he is the real deal. He will continue on his winning ways Saturday.
Forbidden Love needs a form reversal to be winning here. Her trials leading into this event have hinted she is back to her best, and she will be in the finish if she has recaptured her mojo.
Pizarro looked stiff when resuming. The All Too Hard gelding usually races well second-up, and from an inside draw I expect him to make his presence felt late.
Suggested Bet: Golden Mile @ $2.10
Rosehill Race 9
#1 Super Strike
Super Strike can bounce back here after having excuses at his latest start. The 3kg apprentice claim is advantageous, and from barrier one he should get a dream run in-transit. He is getting closer to a win, and he looks well placed to get the job done on Saturday!
Major Artie can peak here third-up from a spell. He looked the winner last start before being caught in the shadows of the post. He races well in this grade, and I expect him to look the winner on straightening.
Bold Mac was brave last week sitting three-wide throughout without cover. If that run didn’t flatten him, he can peak here on the quick back-up. The Chris Waller and James Mcdonald will attract market support.
Suggested Bet: Super Strike @ $9.00
Rosehill Race 10
#11 Think About It
Think About It comes to town after showing above-average ability in mid-week events. He still looks green at grass, but once the penny drops, he could be a serious galloper. I expect him to go through his grades in the coming months, and he will prove too strong for his more experienced rivals on Saturday.
The obvious danger to the favourite is Gracilistyla from the Chris Waller camp. He chased home a smart one fresh, and he usually races well second-up. Despite being drawn off the track, he does look well placed here. The drop in weight helps, and this is well within his reach.
Fearnought can run well at a decent price. The mare by I Am Invincible is ultra-consistent, and she is too talented to leave out of wider exotics and multiples.
Suggested Bet: Think About It @ $1.95
