While the major focus will be on Caulfield and the Blue Diamond Prelude meeting tomorrow don’t forget that group racing is also coming to Rosehill in the form of the 2012 Expressway Stakes.
It’s attracted a top field of horses and the current betting market is offering plenty of value for punters that are banking on an upset.
Obviously all the money at the moment is coming for Rain Affair, the unbeaten runner from the Joe Pride stable clearly the one to beat.
He’s been sensational in rising through the grades throughout his short career but tomorrow is arguably his biggest test to date.
While many of these horses are first up or not at their ideal distance, they are still full of genuine class.
Class can count for a lot in these kind of races and make no mistake Rain Affair will need to be on its game if it’s to get the chocolates in the Expressway Stakes.
Some of the big threats he’ll need to overcome include the returning Doncaster Mile champion Rangirangdoo, as well as other Group 1 champions Shoot Out, Sacred Choice and even the roughie of the field Sniper’s Bullet, a two time Group 1 winner.
