Rosehill Race 1 Tips – THE SCHWEPPERVESCENCE (1400m) – 11:50pm (AEDST)
- #2 Do You Think from #1 Flight Of Pegasus, #4 Cocky Raider and #8 Gunhilda
Do You Think is the sole emergency for the 2011 Golden Slipper field and if Cummings’ thinks he’s good enough to line-up against the best two-year-olds there then if he doesn’t gain a start and runs against a smaller field in a Group 3 here they will be hard to beat.
Rosehill Race 2 Tips – MYER TULLOCH STAKES (2000m) – 12:25pm (AEDST)
- #1 Retrieve from #2 Blackie, #3 Fast Clip and #6 I Think I Do
Rosehill Race 3 Tips – INGLIS QUEEN OF THE TURF STAKES (1500m) – 1:05pm (AEDST)
- #1 More Joyous from #3 Set For Fame, #5 Jersey Lily and #7 Happy Hippy
A four-time Group 1 winner unbeaten this prep with the ideal draw make More Joyous the shortest-priced favourite on the Golden Slipper Day card.
She is ultra consistent and everything is in her favour here.
“Outstanding mare More Joyous has scared many rivals away and faces only six other runners,” Paul Vincent from Luxbet said.
“She is clearly the one to beat.”
Rosehill Race 4 Tips – VINERY STUD STAKES (2000m) – 1:45pm (AEDST)
- #1 Brazilian Pulse from #3 Do Ra Mi, #2 Pinker Pinker and #6 Fibrillation
Another favourite not to lay, Crown Oaks winning filly Brazilian Pulse is third-up for the season, comes off a win over 1800m here in the Keith F Nolan Classic, drops down in the weights and over the distance is the clear favourite.
“Brazilian Pulse was dominant…when giving weight to all her rivals albeit in a weaker affair last week,” Luxbet’s Bookmaker Paul Vincent says.
“(Brazilian Pulse) will be improved having gone this way now and at level weights should salute. Is the best bet of the day.”
Rosehill Race 5 Tips – THE BMW (2400m) – 2:25pm (AEDST)
- #8 Maluckyday from #6 Descarado, #1 Zavite and #7 Linton
Rosehill Race 6 Tips – GEORGE RYDER STAKES (1500m) – 3:10pm (AEDST)

Rosehill Race 7 Tips – AAMI GOLDEN SLIPPER (1200m) – 4:05pm (AEDST)
- #1 Sepoy from #12 Shared Reflections, #2 Smart Missile and #6 Salade
Easing favourite Sepoy may be a market drifter and drawn awkwardly, but his well-tried status and class should see him through.
With windy weather set to dry out the Rosehill track tomorrow, people tipping an upset Golden Slipper result due to the wet may be in for a shock.
