Two-Word Golden Rose 2011 Form Guide

Racing fans it’s back, the famous two-word Group One race form guide that has been tipped as the best concise racing analysis for punters has returned in time for the opening elite level of the spring, the 2011 Golden Rose this Saturday.

Smart Missile

Smart Missile is the 2011 Golden Rose favourite

Only six three-year-olds are set to face off in the $1 million Group 1 Golden Rose (1400m) at Rosehill this Saturday, Luxbet markets on the classic lead by easing favourite Smart Missile ($1.85 out to $2) and firming second-elect Helmet ($4.40 into $3.60).

The unbeaten colt boasting the honour of having defeated superstar Sepoy last season, and a two-time Group One winner from racing powerhouse Darley – the Golden Rose 2011 field may be small but it’s certainly not short on quality.

Along with winner Smart Missile and third-placegetter Helmet, the John O’Shea-trained Foxwedge also had their final lead-up run when a close second in the Group 3 Run To The Rose (1200m).

With half the contenders having come through the same race, the 2011 Golden Rose form would seemingly be easy to gauge.

Add into the mix, however, two other last-start stakes winners, one that was impressive enough to prompt connections to pay $50,000 to get them into the Rose (Manawanui); and one whose hoop hasn’t stopped hyping them up (Aeronautical); plus a progressive triple-figure roughie that could potentially claim the biggest boilover of the season (Flight Of Pegasus); and there suddenly seems a lot more to consider.

Below is the’s exclusive 2011 Golden Rose form guide analysis in two-words, breaking down the chances of each horse in the field and giving you the chance to find real value in the Golden Rose betting markets.

  • 1. HELMET ($3.60) – Blinkers On
  • 2. SMART MISSILE ($2) – X Factor
  • 3. FOXWEDGE ($9) – Right Draw
  • 4. MANAWANUI ($7) – Coming Up
  • 5. AERONAUTICAL ($10) – Berry Nice
  • 6. FLIGHT OF PEGASUS ($101) – Can’t Bloom
