Two races after the Rosehill Guineas has been run and won at Rosehill Gardens this Saturday, punters will have a final chance to clean up for the day with the Birthday Card Stakes 2012 bringing the action to a close, our exclusive tips for which are detailed below.
Due to jump at 5:30pm (NSW time) as Rosehill Race 9, the $125,000 Group 3 Birthday Card Stakes (1200m) looks to be an exciting way to say goodbye to Saturday with a strong field of fillies and mares engaged.
Top fancies in the Birthday Card Stakes odds at our preferred online bookmaker bookmaker.com.au include the Anthony Cummings-trained Gybe racing second-up for the season and the Peter Snowden-trained Group performing Domesday mare Divorces paying $5 and $6 respectively.
So is it a favourite the Races.com.au team are backing? Or is there value to be found backing a roughie in the Birthday Card Stakes this year?
Our expert team of tipsters have done the Rosehill race form and found the best rated chances to back through bookmaker.com.au in the last.
Rosehill Race 9 Betting – 2012 Birthday Card Stakes Tips
Races.com.au Tip To Win
#7 Divorces ($6 bookmaker.com.au)
We ummed and ahhed over tipping Divorces but our gut says she can do this so that’s what we’re going with. Has raced in Group or Listed fields in every race bar her debut racking up eight top three finishes. Okay, so she doesn’t have the strike rate (2 from 17) but she can win. Had just one run in the spring after a five month spell, so things have gone amiss recently, but if she’s fit for her return can win first-up for the first time from six attempts.
Best Place Chances
#10 Phenomenal Lass ($12), #6 Gybe ($5) and #4 Ladys Angel ($11) – Bet now at bookmaker.com.au
Joe Pride’s Phenomenal Lass has plenty of experience at the track and distance and her last-start second to Celts at the Valley in February was promising. Speed and draw bring her into this.
Gybe is top of the markets for statistical reasons and we like her to be close in the finish.
The market mover in this field, Ladys Angel needs to be forgiven for her last start when 11th in the Group 1 Coolmore Classic at the track over 1500m. She comes back to 1200m and a Group 3 field which she is going to like.
Roughie To Try
#3 Graceful Anna ($16 bookmaker.com.au)
One of our favourites this time in these types of races last autumn, but nothing has really gone right for her since she failed in the Coolmore Classic last year. Forgettable spring but two Sydney trials this month say she’s getting close. She goes well first up too (5-1-1-1) so plenty to like if the fitness is there.
