Rosehill Guineas Day 2011 Tips for Race 9 – Birthday Card Stakes

Bringing the action of the bumper nine-race Rosehill Guineas Day card to a close this afternoon is the $125,000 Group 3 Birthday Card Stakes (1200m), the fillies and mares showdown due to jump at 5:30pm (AEDST) and here we have the latest tips on the feature.

The 2011 Birthday Card Stakes field currently features 14 runners following the early scratching of #1 Dorf Command and #11 Shannara.

All the money in the Rosehill Race 9 betting markets has been for Gai Waterhouse’s Encosta De Lago mare Kiss From A Rose, the punters extra keen to get behind the favourite after Waterhouse won the Ajax Stakes earlier with Pureness.

Kiss From A Rose won the Listed Triscay Stakes (1200m) at this track and distance two starts back before finishing third to Jersey Lily in the Listed Wiggle Quality (1400m) at Warwick Farm on March 5.

Today Kiss From A Rose is back to her preferred distance of 1200m and although she is out fairly wide in barrier nine, has been heavily backed in from her opening quote of $4.80 to $3.50 to win the Birthday Card Stakes.

The Rosehill Race 9 betting tip is stick with the favourite and we have Kiss From A Rose rated special to win.

For the exotics and place bets on the Birthday Card Stakes through Luxbet value can be found in:

  • #2 Trim – $9 to Win and $3 Place Luxbet
  • #4 Bacchananl Woman – $16 to Win and $4.75 Place Luxbet
  • #9 Chance Bye – $11 to Win and $3.50 Place Luxbet

Of the field Chance Bye has been the best backed runner in from her original quote of $17 to $11.

Carrying a nice weight with Kath O’Hara in the mount today, Michael Tubman’s quality Snitzel filly has the ideal barrier two draw here and is first-up for the season so should be fresh.

With a solid first-up record, experience at the track having won the Inglis Classic here last year and the Group 2 Silver Slipper Stakes (1100m) in 2010, Chance Bye is the favourite roughie.
