Rawiller’s 2012 Rosehill Guineas Tip – Laser Hawk

Ace jockey Nash Rawiller is tipping his mount in the Rosehill Guineas 2012 this Saturday, Laser Hawk, as the horse to beat without star filly Mosheen there to rain on his parade.

Nash Rawiller is confident his mount Laser Hawk can win Saturday's Rosehill Guineas 2012

Last start the Gai Waterhouse-trained Artie Schiller gelding, a half-brother to Waterhouse’s former six-time Group 1 hero Desert War, showed their autumn potential with a big run to finish just a half-length away third to Mosheen in the Group 1 Randwick Guineas (1600m) with Rawiller in the saddle.

On Saturday at Rosehill Gardens Rawiller retains the ride on Laser Hawk as the promising youngster steps up to 2000-metres for the first time for the $500,000 Group 1 Rosehill Guineas (Rosehill Race 7).

The Randwick Guineas was Laser Hawk’s first loss form a strong four-start career to date, their most notable win so far being their first-up effort to defeat Chris Waller’s smart O’Reilly gelding Said Com in the Quakers Inn Handicap (1500m) at Rosehill on February 25.

Said Com finished one better than Laser Hawk in the Randwick Guineas when second to Mosheen however, and will be there again in the Rosehill Guineas field on Saturday looking to break their Group 1 maiden.

But after Said Com drew barrier 20 of 20 while Laser Hawk came up with a midfield barrier nine draw, Rawiller is even more confident Waterhouse’s hopeful can get the job done.

“This horse jumped a big hurdle last start,” Rawiller said.

“It was his first try at that level and he put his hand up as a genuine Group 1 horse.

“The Rosehill Guineas at 2000m is a more suitable race and then the (ATC Australian) Derby is his main aim.”

In an attempt to get more out of Laser Hawk as they step up in distance, they will race on Saturday without blinkers.

“We have elected to take the blinkers off,” Rawiller said.

“The more I thought about it and after riding him work, he’s a lot more professional than what he was three months ago. He’s concentrating on his racing now.

“I can afford to be a little bit positive out of the barriers on Saturday knowing the horse will come back underneath me.”

The horses main autumn aim, $1.5 million Group 1 ATC Australian Derby (2400m), runs at Royal Randwick on Saturday April 14.

Laser Hawk is currently the $11 fourth favourite in the futures bookmaker.com.au markets led by Silent Achiever ($7) and Mosheen ($9).

It is shaping up as an intriguing edition of the Rosehill Guineas on Saturday with a quartet of Kiwi raiders including NZ Derby winner Silent Achiever and runner-up Rock ‘n’ Pop taking on the Aussies.

Other notable hopes including Waller’s other hopeful Big Time (barrier five), Peter Moody’s Alister Clark Stakes winner Highly Recommended (barrier six) and Anthony Cummings’ Australian Guineas runner-up Strike The Stars (barrier four).
