Rosehill Race 7

#1 Anamoe

Not much left to say about the best weight-for-age horse in Australasia. He got further back than usual in the Group 1 Chipping Norton Stakes, however, he still finished too strong for his rivals. His third-up record is superior, and he always runs well at Rosehill. The 1500m looks advantageous, and only bad luck in running will stop him from claiming another Group 1 event. The wide barrier is the primary concern.

Artorius can run well after a dazzling first-up performance. He usually races well second-up, and his barrier manners have improved in recent times. If he can show the same turn of foot at the end of 1500m, he will figure in the finish on Saturday. His late sectionals are white-hot!

Golden Mile is ready to peak. His two runs this preparation have been good without winning, and he looks well placed under the weight-for-age scale. If he can find a spot in the running line from the awkward draw, I expect him to be there when the whips are cracking.

Suggested Bet: Anamoe @ $1.60

Rosehill RACE 8

#10 Learning To Fly

Great edition of the Golden Slipper!

I am happy to be with the undefeated filly Learning To Fly. She oozes class and has shown exceptional versatility in her wins to date. The form around her performances has stood up, and she gets to join Pierro and Sebring as unbeaten Slipper winners! She will get the run of the race from barrier four, and if the gaps open up at the right time, watch out!

The penny has finally dropped for Cylinder. His two wins since returning from a spell have been first-class. From barrier three, he can box seat, and his high cruising speed is beautiful to watch. He has won the traditional lead-up races and will attract market support with the super freak James Mcdonald aboard. He will make his presence felt in the shadows.

Steel City has drawn awkwardly in the carpark. If she can cross them uncontested, she can lead them a merry dance on top of the speed. If the pace is on early and she is left cast, her fate may be decided in the first 200m.

Suggested Bet: Learning To Fly @ $6.50

Rosehill Race 9

#2 Uncommon James

The Oakleigh Plate winner Uncommon James looks well placed to capture another time-honoured event. He can sit behind the frenetic speed from barrier four and sprout wings late. The Cable Bay gelding looks untapped, and I expect him to explode on Saturday. If Damien Lane presses the go button at the right time, I am very bullish he will be too strong for his rivals. 

Asfoora was gallant in defeat behind Uncommon James last start. The Flying Artie mare meets him significantly better at the weights on Saturday, and she is drawn ideally alongside her foe in barrier five. Her second-up record must be respected, and I expect her to figure in the finish with even luck.

Despite being older than father time, Eduardo will make his own luck on top of the speed. He was brilliant first-up, and his track and distance record is outrageous. If he can cross the field early without using too much petrol, he will look the winner inside the last furlong.

Suggested Bet: Uncommon James @ $4.00

Rosehill Race 10

#7 Written Beauty

I am happy to have a throw at the stumps with Written Beauty. The Written Tycoon mare doesn’t win out of turn, however, this looks like her race. If her barrier manners improve, and she doesn’t give her rivals a head start, she can run over the top of them late. Her inconsistency and winning strike rate are the primary concerns. 

Jump The Broom snatched defeat out of the jaws of victory last start at Randwick. She was home and hosed before veering off the track, collecting several runners. She subsequently lost on protest, and punters were left brokenhearted. The Sebring mare can bounce back despite the awkward barrier draw. She is racing in great spirit, and her next win is just around the corner.

Jal Lei is too consistent to leave out of winning conversations. She got the nod on protest last start, and she can continue on her winning ways with even luck. She is ideally drawn in barrier three and is building an impressive career record. Watch for her late!

Suggested Bet: Written Beauty @ $12.00
