A bumper nine-race card is set to take place at Sydney’s Rosehill Gardens tomorrow with the highlight being the Group 1 Rosehill Guineas.
There is plenty of excitement outside of the Guineas feature race with the Group 2 Magic Night Stakes and the Pago Pago Stakes both serving as final lead up events to next week’s $3.5 million Golden Slipper.
With all the action less than 24 hours away, Races.com.au is here to bring your our exclusive betting guide detailing where the money is going ahead of the huge day of racing.
Race 1 – 12:10pm Mondial Pink Diamond Magic Night Stakes (1200m)
Anthony Cummings trained horse She’s A Fox may head into the race as favourite ($3.30 – bookmaker.com.au) but the most heavily backed so far are some horses at longer odds.
The punters fancy New Zealand filly Later Gator ($9.00) who is fresh off a third-place effort in Canberra’s Black Opal Stakes.
There has also been money for Queensland horse Doubtfilly who has moved in from $11.00 to $10.00 at bookmaker.com.au on the back of some sizzling form that has seen her go unbeaten in her last three starts.
Race 2 – 12:50pm Bowemans Office Furniture Pago Pago Stakes (1200m)
The bookies can’t take a bet for anything other than super star colt All Too Hard ahead of tomorrow’s Golden Slipper qualifier.
Currently odds-on $1.45 favourite at bookmaker.com.au, it would take a brave individual to bet against the half brother of Black Caviar who is coming off a dominant four length win in the Group 2 VRC Sires’ Produce Stakes.
Race 3 – 1:30pm Randwick Equine Centre Darby Munro Stakes (1200m)
The punters have shied away from race-favourite Hallowell Belle after the Gai Waterhouse trained filly drew the widest barrier of the 15-horse field and she has moved out from $4.00 to $4.40.
Money has come in for African Pulse ($6.50) who should be race-hardened after finishing mid-field against high-class opposition in the Oakleigh Stakes and Newmarket Handicap.
Anise ($7.00) has also received good backing from the punters who must be expecting her to continue her impressive first-up record following a spell while gelding Unpretentious has been fancied at long odds of $13.00 at bookmaker.com.au.
Race 4 – 2:10pm Parramatta Leagues Club Challenge Stakes (1100m)
With Hay List ruled out of the Group 2 sprint, four-year-old gelding Rain Affair has assumed the tag of short-priced favourite ($1.85).
He he is returning to the city where he won nine races in a row and the Joseph Pride trained horse has been hammered in the fixed-odds market with barely any money coming for the six other hopefuls.
Race 5 – 2:50pm De Bortoli Wines Epona Stakes (1900m)
A large field of 15 horses will roll out in the 1900 metre race for fillies and mares and there is currently a log jam in the betting market.
With five horses sitting between $5.00 and $7.00 in the bookmaker.com.au market, it sits as a fairly open race though the most fancied so far by the punters is Guy Walter trained mare Foxstar ($5.00).
Race 6 – 3:30pm Hyland Race Colours Ajax Stakes (1500m)
The Ajax Stakes betting market is nearly as open as the Epona Stakes with the favourite Niagara currently sitting at $4.60.
The punters have been quiet for this Group 2 event so far that includes quality horses Pied A Terre ($6.00) and Speediness ($6.00).
There has been a sprinkling of money by some brave souls for long-shot outsider Revolt at $61.00.
Race 7 – 4:10pm Flinders Lane Rosehill Guineas (2000m)
Creating most of the excitement for tomorrow’s Rosehill day of racing is the Group 1 Guineas event.
A huge field will line up for the feature three-year-old race tomorrow and the early money is coming for bookmaker.com.au New Zealand star Silent Achiever ($4.20).
The punters are expecting the New Zealand Derby winner to continue her winning ways in her first race on Australian soil despite drawing a wide barrier (17).
The filly will start as favourite ahead of Randwick Guineas third place-getter Laser Hawk ($5.50) and fellow New Zealand horse Ocean Park ($8.00).
Race 8 – 4:50pm Ambassador Travel NE Manion Cup (2400m)
There has been little money for the NE Manion Cup which serves as a lead up to next month’s high profile Sydney Cup.
The betting market is cluttered with Precedence ($4.00), Permit ($4.80), Herculian Prince ($5.00) and Older Than Time ($7.00) all jostling for top spot.
Race 9 – 5:30pm Ascend Sales Birthday Card Stakes (1200m)
Like the NE Manion Cup, the Birthday Card Stakes remains relatively untouched by the punters so far.
There is a log jam in the market for the 13-horse race with Gybe ($5.00), Divorces ($6.00), Miss Marx ($7.00) and Curtana ($7.50) all potentially favourites when the race jumps as the last of the day at Rosehill tomorrow.
