Rowley Mile 2012 – Tipping Guide

With the sun currently shining in Hawkesbury and expected to continue into tomorrow, a quality day of racing is expected and one of the key races is the Listed $150,000 2012 Rowley Mile (1600m).

Ten quality horses were earlier this week named in the final field for the feature race including talented Gai Waterhouse-trained pair Western Symbol and Fast Clip.

Western Symbol is coming off three straight victories while Fast Clip produced an excellent run to finish fifth last start in a high quality Doncaster field.

Running for the first time in over a month is consistent gelding Star Of Octagonal while Alma’s Fury comes into the race on the back of consecutive third placings.

Struggling to make your mind up on who to back? Keep reading below as we have done the hard work for you by studying the form, analysing the conditions and developing our best expert picks ahead of tomorrow’s exciting feature race.

The Winner

#2 Western Symbol ($4.80)

Waterhouse may have awarded leading jockey Nash Rawiller the ride on her other runner Fast Clip but it is the in-form Western Symbol we think is the horse to beat tomorrow.

The Doomben Cup bound gelding is dropping back in distance after winning over 2000 metres last start but he has proven in the past that should not be an issue, having scored victory just two starts ago at the distance at Hawkesbury.

He’s chasing a fourth consecutive victory after beating some quality fields of late including in the Group 3 HKJC Stakes and the Listed JRA Plate.

The New Zealand five-year-old has drawn a favourable barrier five position and the only question mark will be how he adjusts to Blake Shinn with regular jockey Tommy Berry on duty in Adelaide.

The Placings

#1 Fast Clip and #5 Star Of Octagonal $4.80.

Race favourite Fast Clip was impressive two starts ago when winning the Doncaster Prelude and he  is a good chance here with premier jockey Nash Rawiller set to ride him from the barrier two.

Running from the inside will be Todd Howlett-trained gelding Star Of Octagonal who was in excellent form before being given a short break after the Ajax Stakes on March 31.

From five starts in 2012 the son of Octagonal has won once and filled minor placing spots on four other occasions.

The Roughie

#6 Wazn ($11.00)

Fresh from a spell is Chris Waller-trained five-year-old Wazn who finished his last campaign in impressive touch and has an excellent record of five wins from 12 starts.

The son of Whipper has won first-up before, has drawn nicely in barrier three and with boom Kiwi jockey James McDonald in the saddle is a great chance to challenge the top elects tomorrow.
