O’Shea Launches Triple-Pronged Attack at Rosehill

Sydney trainer John O’Shea is preparing to saddle up a select but quality team of three runners at Saturday’s Rosehill meeting hoping for a hat-trick at the meeting.

While the majority of the weekend’s attention will fall on the Doomben Cup Day features up in Brisbane, O’Shea is eagerly awaiting to see how his trio run at Rosehill to get an early idea for the Sydney Spring Carnival next season.

The first of O’Shea’s runners is the lightly-raced Hendricus who will line-up for their third career start in the $70,000 Masterton Homes Handicap (1400m) on Saturday.

The Mossman colt ran second on debut at Canterbury last month before impressively taking out the Inglis Bonus 2YO Handicap (1200m) at Wagga on May 5.

“The form out of his first-up run at Canterbury is strong and he then did the job well at Wagga,” O’Shea said of Hendricus.

“He is probably crying out for this trip now and we should get a good guide as to where we go next after this race.”

A progressive two-year-old, Hendricus has drawn ideally with barrier three, will be ridden by Christian Reith in Rosehill Race 2 and currently sit as a $9 chance in the markets.

In the following race on Saturday’s Rosehill card, O’Shea will be represented by Miss Marx in the $70,000 Camden Hire Handicap (1200m).

Set to start from gate seven with Reith again engaged for the ride, the three-year-old Anabaa filly is resuming after a three and a half spell.

Before the break, Miss Marx was in blistering form winning back-to-back races over 1100m and 1200m at Canterbury.

“She obviously has a good record and we expect her to go through her grades pretty quickly,” O’Shea said.

“She is a nice type and will appreciate the roomier Rosehill course.”

O’Shea’s third runner is Glintz who will contest the day’s final event, the $70,000 Australian Rotary Health Handicap (1400m).

Pins four-year-old Glintz, runner-up to Thankgodyou’rehere in the Hawkesbury Gold Cup last year, found themselves outclassed at the start of this season when finishing dead last in both the Group 3 Newcastle Newmarket Handicap (1400m) and the Group 3 Doncaster Mile Prelude (1600m).

Glintz enjoyed a drop back in class last start when winning the Blakes Marine Handicap (1400m) on April 30 and is out for successive wins from barrier 10 with apprentice jockey Taylor Lovelock-Wiggins engaged for the ride.

“He (Glintz) did a few things wrong in his first couple of runs this campaign but we’ve now got him back on track,” O’Shea said.

“He will just go through the grades for the time being – he’ll be staying in Sydney for the moment as the prize money is very good.”

Glintz is the $4 favourite for Saturday.
