At Rosehill Racecourse today the rain has started to close in and the track has been downgraded to a Dead 5 for the Coolmore Classic Day programme.
With heavy rain now hitting the Rosehill track, it is likely the ground will continue to give and after the downpour an updated track assessment could see another downgrade to a Slow 6.
Punters felt the effects of the rain worse than anyone with the driving rain resulting in a massive Rosehill Race 2 upset.
After going out odds-on at $1.18 on the tote, Blue Diamond Stakes winner and raging Golden Slipper betting favourite Sepoy suffered his first defeat from five starts.
Not having been tested in the rain or on a wet track before, Sepoy couldn’t catch run-away winner Smart Missile ($26) and finished second behind the Anthony Cummings-trained colt.
Rosehill Race 3 is next-up at 1:30pm (AEDST) where another field of Golden Slipper prospects will face off in the $300,000 Group 3 Reisling Stakes (1200m).
Satin Shoes is the drifting $1.70 favourite in the Reisling Stakes odds at Luxbet, but is another upset on the cards?
Of the six fillies in the Reisling Stakes field, none have won on a Slow track or in the wet so this could open the race up and provide value in the betting markets and odds at Luxbet.
Fast And Sexy ($51 Luxbet) is the only runner to have had a start on Slow ground when the Chris Waller-trained filly finished sixth to Karuta Queen in the $2 million Gold Coast Magic Millions 2YO Classic (1200m) on January 15.
At her juicy odds Fast And Sexy is our Wet Track Rosehill Race 3 Place Tip to bet on now at Luxbet.
If the rain doesn’t ease we suggest looking at #5 Elite Falls for the win at a current quote of $2.80 through Luxbet.
Elite Falls has had two runs on a Dead track, winning the $250,000 Iglis Banner (1000m) over Blue Diamond Stakes placegetter Masthead at Moonee Valley in one and finishing a game second in the other.
