2012 Golden Slipper Day Tips – Rosehill Saturday

A bumper all group nine-race card will take place at Rosehill Gardens this Saturday with $7.5 million in prize money up for grabs across the day.

The day is of course highlighted by the Golden Slipper which stands as the richest two-year-old event in the world and will see a host of challengers take on superstar filly Samaready.

Manighar and Americain will have a rematch in second feature race of the day, the $2.25 million BMW, which will test ten stayer’s over 2400 metres.

Outside of the two top races, there are three other Group 1 events including the George Ryder Stakes, the Queen Of The Turf Stakes and the Vinery Stud Stakes.

All feature some high class horses, meaning there is plenty of betting action to be had.

Race 1 – 11:45 am The Schweppervescence (1400m)

#1 Flying Snitzel ($2.60) from #2 Proverb and #3 Smart Man

Flying Snitzel has the most accomplished record and should be far too strong for the 14 other horses lining up in Race 1 in Sydney this weekend. Read our exclusive predictions as to why we believe the three heaviest weighted horses will fill the top three spots.

Race 2 – 12:25pm Sebring Stakes (1100m)

#10 Tiger Tees ($7.00) from #13 Riva De Lago and #1 Mic Mac

Provided Tiger Tees can handle a step up in class this weekend, the New Zealand gelding should be near the front at the business end of the 1100 metre sprint. With six wins from nine starts, he has the best overall record in the race and we are tipping him to finish ahead of race favourite Riva De Lago and former Group 2 winner Mic Mac who is returning from a spell.

Race 3 – 1:05pm Vinery Stud Stakes (2000m)

#1 Mosheen ($1.50) from #2 Streama and #4 She Goes to Rio

#2 Darci Be Good ($8.50) from #10 Strawberry Boy and #8 Iggi Pop

Race 5 – 2:25pm The BMW (2400m)

#2 Manighar ($4.00) from #1 Americain and #7 Precedence

French star Manighar is coming into the race in better form than his chief rival Americain and with a better barrier draw and a firm track, should prove a touch too good on Saturday. Read our preview and tips guide to find out more.

Race 9 – 5:10pm Cellarbrations HKJC Stakes (2000m)

#5 Maules Creek ($8.00) from #4 Crafty Irna and #7 Beijing Boy

The continually improving Maules Creek won at the distance last start in Randwick City Stakes and we are expecting the gelding to again step up and take victory in his first ever group race ahead of Epona Stakes runner-up Crafty Irna and New Zealand gelding Beijing Boy.
